210801 Goodbye dinner with John

Time flies when you're havin fun.

6 months ago the clan got its first "Foreign" rider.
But this foreigner was more local than the locals that I've come across.

An adventurous man he is,

1) He's not afraid to wallop anything on the plate, let it be the king of fruits - durian or petai.
2) He'd scour the backwaters of Selangor without a blink.
3) He didn't care what people think of him or his preferences.
4) He's straightforward, practical & plain simple.

No fancy bikes nor flashy attire but he's one hellova rider. Barely two weeks after his feet got operated had he done the Port Dickson Triathlon.
Look at the scar.

I would remember this man - a gentleman who brought back some goodies for my kids while in San Francisco. - Great kiddies books for my little son & daughter. If not for some empty promises by certain quarters, he would have stayed here longer & teach more of us about tolerance, respect & diversity.
He made me rekindle old memories during the 70's while in Penang. I had an Amerasian neighbor - American white father & a Vietnamese mother.

We rode quite a bit with him & here are the pix of the clan's adventures together. Click on each title for the tales.
