This is the first summer in 5 that I have not crossed the country on a motorcycle. I have work obligations in Japan. I have many friends that will make the trip to Born Free from both sides of the planet this year. While you are at Born free, I will be on an Airplane bound for Alabama. My contract ends the day Born Free 3 begins. My plane lands in Birmingham, Alabama the next day. To those of you who ride, take great care, and for those who drive....... well try to have fun anyway.
