Dispatch from Fred

Fred is a passionate rider. I suppose everyone down here is but his photo album has a depth and breadth I think we’re all a bit envious of. Not surprisingly he’s successful elsewhere in life.

Currently the group he’s with is moving south fast.

He’s German. I’m looking forward to riding with him in Europe about 16 months from now. Motorcycle tour in Mexcico

Here he is club racing at Hockenheim on his 1000RR

He’s crashed a few times in the last two weeks.

  1. Excellent story from Fred. Quite a challenge though, navigating the roads in Latin countries.

  2. Margo Harper,

    Hi Jeremy, I loved Fred’s bike wisdom and the freedom it evoked. Hope Lucinda’s parts destined to repair or repairers coming there, or whatever. That looks like quite a piston crack. Espero que el espanol esta tratandote bien y felix, sobre todo, amigo mio.
