Getting ready for a ride with my mom and brother.
Couple of soggy BMW’s
Anonymous asked: Yo Ryan.. Me and a buddy or two are heading down past you 20th/21st. You around for a beer/ride/both/not necessarily in the order?..

Anonymous asked: Ryan, first off HUGE FAN, not just because of all of your videos, but because my mom used to work in Dugway Proving Ground, Tooele, UT. (middle of nowhere), I was born and raised in Panama City, PTY and spent alot of time up in El Valle de Anton (I hope you went and rode there with your KLR.) A few months ago you uploaded new videos of you back in UT, my question is: If you are going back to PTY, when will it be, and can we set a trip to ride both of us off-road style? I have bikes and 4wheels.
I don’t have any plans to return to Panama at the moment, but I’ll likely end up retiring there one day.
Now that I am back in Utah and the summer is on it’s way (if this crappy spring ever ends) I’ll start planning group rides. Some will be on road, some off, some a little of both. Best way to keep track of when they are happening is to like my halfthrottle facebook page. I’ll post the event there so people can RSVP.
Anonymous asked: Did you serve a mission?
Yes. Canada, Calgary mission.
Anonymous asked: Why did you get rid of your KLR? How long did you have it and how many miles did you put on it? Did you have any major problems with it when you had it other than from drops? Is it a good bike for round the world travel? Thank you for all of your information, I enjoy your videos very much.
Because I moved away from Panama. Had it about a year and a half. Odometer was broken don’t know how many miles I did. Didn’t have any major problems. Because it is a single cylinder, chain driven, carbureted motorcycle you can always find a mechanic who can work on it. So great bike for world travel.
Good luck on your adventures.
Ride safe. Travel far. Do it soon.
Anonymous asked: after reviewing your true story Sunday videos; would you attribute the training partner that you didn't care for with your now being jobless? or just coincidence, whats the plan now.
That could have been part of it, but there just wasn’t any electrical work at the project I was working on, so they got rid of me.
I’ve got plans amigo. Already on to bigger and better things. Stay tuned for some announcements in the future.

Anonymous asked: Hey man, Happy New Year! I hope you're doing well. I'm planning to do a cross country trip (USA) and I was wondering if you could do a gear video or we could just have a running discussion. I'm a complete newbie at touring so I guess I need the full lowdown: what to bring, what not to bring, what to pack it in, how to not get it all wet or stolen. I know I'm asking a lot and I really appreciate your help. My name's Ram
This is a very broad question. Are you camping? Staying in hotels? Staying in the U.S. or going abroad. Here’s my best advice.
Jam what you think you’ll need in your side bags and hit the road. If you need something along the way, pull into a Wal-mart and buy it.
Where ever you are going there will be people there. If it’s cold buy a jacket, if you get wet buy a towel and keep on riding.
Some people spend way too much time planning and not enough time going for it.
Ride safe. Travel far. Do it soon.
Anonymous asked: Cont'd; I would like to see more buisnesses. Here in the States, it is getting very restless as a buisness owner. Our customers are moving their corporations off-shore or out of the continent. I am looking setting up a small facility to assist the logistics & shipping point onto the canal zone. I think David may be the location. I would help me if I saw more of the stores, realestate offices and legal issues addressed before I visit. Maybe this service could be a consideration to get a sponser?
David is bad location for a shipping business related to the canal zone. It’s a 6 hour drive away.
I don’t live in Panama anymore dont think we’ll be running into each other. Hope you have an awesome trip.
