xx Jay and Lisa's archived ride reports | 02 Apr 17

I posted in the "what happened to the forum thread" that I would post up some of our old ride reports, so here it goes.

My ride reports are generally rides that my wife and I do. Many times, my daughter Kristin joined us, a few are my solo rides, and occasionally other riders have come along. Most are in Oklahoma, several in Arkansas, and a few in other states. These were all written for a private, members-only type forum because my wife was uncomfortable with making them public. Now, she says it's okay to post them.

My reports are primarily picture reports and light on the text. They are mostly dual-sport, country road type rides but we do a few longer rides on our street bikes too. I try to include a little of the history or backgro...

xx A Ride to Adelboden | 27 Feb 17
15:04:11 by Mrs. DantesDame | Views: 729 | Comments: 11

Ok, going to post the full content because someone (*Blue* *cough* *Best*) was complaining about a lack of motorcycle content. And since i have 1)  a motorcycle, 2) good weather and 3) time, here is a fresh ride report.

Feast your eyes, suckers!!  Cool

It was my birthday and there was only one thing I wanted: to ride my motorcycle with Dan into the mountains and have lunch under a sunny sky. To my delight, the day was sunny and the roads were clear. My only problem was my thumb: five days earlier I had a little accident on my bicycle and badly sprained the thumb on my right hand. I could use the hand (Hey! Look at me typing this up!) but it would not very comfortable on the throttle. Oh well - it was my birthday and I didn't care!...

xx Grand tour of Japan | 28 Dec 16
07:12:37 by Ironchef | Views: 1175 | Comments: 15

Some more photos of Japan from me.

Got sidelined before posting so these were taken October just prior to the leaves changing colour in earnest.

My original plan was to ride north to see the autumn colours which start sooner but some of those prefectures got smashed up with a typhoon and then one of my favourite areas south is still rebuilding from a devastating earthquake so I did a bit of each way instead.

I rode up to near Mt Bandai volcano and then did a loop the next day there, wonderful roads. Then two incredible routes in high mountains to historic Nikko region.


xx 2016 Year in Review | 25 Nov 16
18:50:46 by Acadian Rider | Views: 2602 | Comments: 14

Now that my 2016 riding season is over, I am summarizing it with one Ride Report instead of posting several.  

2016 was an important year for me. I turned 60 and I retired in April. You would think that after retirement I would ride more but that was not the case.  Instead of riding more I actually ran more and finished the year with three races (1 x 5k, 2 x 10k).  Maybe Iíll shoot for a Ĺ marathon next year. Sue and I also did an 18 day trip to Ireland.  

O.K., back to riding.  I rode 11,765 km (7,310 miles) this year. I did two rides that were longer than one day and several day trips in NB, NS and PEI.  I took some pictures on some rides but not on all of them.  Hereís a summary of the rides where I took some pictures:  


xx Lack of colors fall ride - Arkansas Style | 12 Nov 16
14:13:04 by lobo10s | Views: 1519 | Comments: 5

Had a great 4 days and 1285 mile journey last weekend. The colors had not changed but the weather was amazing and those Arkansas Twisty roads did not disappoint. What a fun ride.

I have a ride report here:

I have also included a couple of pictures to set the tone....

xx CA Coast, Mountain and Desert (brief) | 08 Nov 16
09:25:12 by nevinfs327 | Views: 1179 | Comments: 4

I've been lazy about taking photos (or a camera), but snapped a few shots on a trip last weekend from San Francisco to Point Mugu.  

Friday: 70s and Sunny along the PCH on Friday. Couldn't have been nicer.

CA154 rest area and sun set on the mountains.


xx Texas Gathering - Kerrville Texas | 25 Oct 16
11:05:50 by lobo10s | Views: 1263 | Comments: 3

We had a great 4 day 1300 mile journey over the weekend of Oct 7-10th. It was a fantastic ride with good friends. As always I have completed a ride report on my blog. It is too long to write out again, so I have included the link. I hope you take a few moments to go and check it out. Here are some pictures to wet the appetite.

xx Hokkaido | 10 Oct 16

Micro ride report. Did a two week trip up north August.
I just slabbed it up past Sendai. Credit to the FJR it makes 500km highway a doodle.
Next day superb exploring Mt Hachimantai and abandoned buildings.

Then on to Aomori via Lake Towada.
Ferry was easy, scan my print out then immediate boarding.
Had nap and woke up to cold and rain before landing.
Sun came out Lake Toya. Glorious ride around the lake. Made me feel like this.

Fine and hot around Furano. Route 452 one of the best roads in Hokkaido.

Next day patchy rain. Usually always dry in Hokkaido in summer.

Day after rain, really he...
