Is that my mom's underwear?

Is That My Mom’s Underwear?

My parents and brother were able to come to Cusco on a recent trip. One hope that I had was that they would be able to bring down some or all of the motorcycle gear that was graciously donated by Western Power Sports of Boise Idaho. Craig at WPS put together a tall order for us which provides the necessary riding gear to operate MotoMission. In fact, he filled our order and then some. Thanks Craig! I cannot tell you what a blessing you have been.

An interesting thing happened as my parents began receiving box after box of motorcycle gear at their office. It was a lot of stuff. We had talked about them bringing down a few things. It turned out that a full room in their house was designated as the “packing room” in order to be able to fit the piles of gear into their limited suitcase space. Well, my folks were able to pack enough gear for an army. With a little of my suggestive help, we prioritized the needs, made a list and filled the order. In fact, they were able to get all of the high priority items in the suitcases. What a blessing! However, that was not the end of the story.

They each were able to bring two suitcases of 50 pounds each plus a carry-on. No big deal you might think. When you fill your suitcases with nearly 50 pounds each of motorcycle riding gear, it leaves little space for personal items such as their own clothes. So, spread throughout was a plethora of clothing items strategically placed in every nook and cranny of every motorcycle boot, helmet, box, and bag. What a blessing it is to receive this incredible gift. Thanks to all of those who helped in the process. Mom, Dad, Brother Bud, Craig and staff at WPS, and all those people that had to transport those heavy bags from place to place.

SO my disclaimer is this-If you book a tour with MotoMission, know that we cannot be held liable for the shock of finding my mother’s underwear in the bottom of your boot.

Did they have to wear the helmets on then plane?! Those had to take up a lot of space. Glad to see everything is coming together. Can't wait for our trip.
