The Motorcycle Arrived!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!! #$%#$%@#$!!!!!!

After months of waiting, my motorcycle was delivered to the parking lot of my hotel The Penguin House in Thailand.

Happy happy daveg and his happy DRZ

I’ve been waiting so long.  Words are useless to explain the joy of seeing my motorcycle strapped to the truck arriving to the hotel.  After waiting for so much time infinite terrible scenarios constantly preoccupied my mind– thoughts of my DRZ arriving with pieces missing or even worse.. never arriving.  She’s finally here!! My long lost moto-home!!!!!

My DRZ is here and fired up with only minimal persuasion by the starter button.  It is unbelievable that after almost 4 months of sitting she started without a problem.  Thanks to Alex who came over to assist and bring the bike some fresh benzine.

Let the motorcycle portion of my journey begin.

    When I read the title of the post I was kind of expecting the motorcycle to be missing some parts… Glad that’s not the case!
