Hi Ant!

My father was invited to emigrate to the US by his uncle. He declined, on the grounds that Syracuse NY was waaaaaay too cold.

He accepted the offer when the uncle moved to Los Angeles .

What kind of touring have you done?

Welcome to BikeForums, and don't hesitate to send me a PM if you have any questions.

Heya, thanks for the welcome.

I haven't done any touring yet, but the missus and I are looking into a Seattle --> Portland ride next summer.

A very popular ride! I still have yet to ride the STP, but that has more to do with being unable to get the time off, than lack of desire .
