After a hot weekend of great racing, I finally met up with Hollywood again, who had just found a buyer for his truck. Why, you ask? Because he wanted to pick up a motorcycle that he could take to all of the lower 48 states! I gave him a ride to buy a fully toured out FZ1 , and watched in disbelief as he handed the guy the money. He had talked about coming with me the last few weeks, but a lot of people talk about doing things without ever actually committing. There's always a million reasons it's decidedly not possible or a million reasons to delay to a tomorrow that never quite comes. Quite a few years back, Hollywood had planned a big trip to South America on an FZ1 not unlike the one he just bought, only to let people talk him out of it. He didn't want to let this opportunity pass him by again, and I enjoyed the company, so looks like I now, officially, have a long term travel buddy! I might lose a little street cred for this, but we proved to have pretty similar styles over the past few weeks, so I think it's gonna work out great!
