I'm moving to England

I just got back from a week across the pond. Saw tons of sportbikes, EVERYONE in full leathers, and all day long last Sunday where bikes ripping past my hotel window (some 2-up) enjoying those wonderfully twisty roads.

The midwest sucks.

Next I'll be going to New Zealand, can't wait for that

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Shut up and sit down, you big, bald fuck. I hate leaving my country, and I especially don't like leaving it for anything less than warm sandy beaches, and drinks with little straw hats.

Anyone been to Rome, every douchebag in the city is on a 50cc scooter and they decide that it's helpful to use their shitty high- pitched horn at all hours of the night, as if the squeal of that engine wasn't bad enough... I HATE ROME!

Very cool, Jeff. 3 of the climbers on my team were from England. Sounds like a great place to visit but I don't know about living there. Pretty expensive and the food... did you have blood pudding?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I bleed GREEN

It was clear skys, no lower than 60 at night and got up to 95 one day (July record), but not as humid as home.

The food was excellent. The hotel I stay served probably the best meal I've ever had. Ever.

But now I'm home and the weather is rubbish :P
