I pick my new bike up in Seoul on Saturday. There is an ASMC Run in May, and a HOG Rally coming soon. Lots of things going on here, so get in touch with me if you need info, or want to set something up!

I am getting a 2006 Black Cherry Softail Deluxe. I had to put the Sporty in storage due to shipping difficulties.

Man a trip to Russia? I would love that! Unfortunately I don't get any vacation time until next year.

Nonetheless, we should meet up before you leave, since we have been skirting around each other for the last two years.

Chris.

Snuffy - Thanks...we serve so you don't have to.

Chris - Where you working now? Vacation time...did you get out and become a contractor?

Come by the PX after you pick-up your Deluxe on Saturday...YMC is doing a membership drive and there'll be lots of scoots hanging around. I'll tell ya, I've seen more Deluxes around Seoul this year than I have at any other time...ENCS sent a lot of 'em this way...good looking bike. Think Jims makes a "Pan Head" valve cover that fits on a TC88B...that'd set it off just right.

I graduated at Seoul American Highschool. You guys are having all the fun. Wish I could come join you for a right up in the mountains myself. Stay safe. Hope the Koreans are better drivers now then they were back in the 80's.

Ralph - Where haven't you been?

I can say that I am a proud graduate of Seoul Elementary School...1974. I've seen changes in this country spanning from 1970s to now (off an on of course). Stranger than fiction, this place ain't filled-up with a bunch of 3d world peons scraping out a living. There's lot's of money here and lots of folks willing to spend it. Just down the street from where I live is the Harley dealer, a BMW MotorRad dealer, an Aprilla, Ducati, Cagiva dealer and now, a brand new Victory dealer who is just down the street from the Polaris dealer (was kinda hoping that KTM would open up a dealership here before I left...guess I'll have to wait till I get back to Deutschland).

Needless to say, lot's has changed since your graduated.

My father was a career soldier and I got to travel on most adventures. I have lived half of my life outside the US. I am ready for that again. I am not sure living in America is for me. I like the cultural variances of living in Europe. My last tour (as a Raytheon contractor) in Europe was from 1986 to 1999. I am still wondering what happened
