xx Iceland [very many and mostly photographs] | 08 Sep 16
22:05:39 by Daniel Kalal | Views: 3474 | Comments: 23


Several years back, I wondered what it would take to ride the roads of  Iceland.  The answer was “more time than I had” and I put the notion  aside.  This year, it was time to revisit that question.  If I  need more time; I'll take more time.
This will be a ride of Iceland.  I'd first planned to circle the  island-country mostly along the ring road and figure the rest out, along the  way.  But, after checking for an available room in Seyðisfjørður (where  the Denmark ferry lands) and seeing how limited the choice is, I realized that I'd  prudently need to do more planning for this trip than I've ever done.
I made advance  reservations for every night around the island--flippin...

xx Looking for the perfect curve... | 31 Aug 16

[/Revised, proofread]

This is an account of a day spent in search of the perfect curve, or even better, the perfect curve ridden perfectly. It's like looking for a diamond in a pile of coal. None of which exists, of course, but there's something to be said for trying.

Spoiler alert: although obligatory RR bike pictures (starting, gassing up, standing somewhere) are present, there is no food porn in this RR! Yes, I had lunch, no, I won't show it. I don't know you well enough to do that.   Razz

The plan was to get to PA 125, which is reputed to be a fun and challenging road to travel. A little background... Southeastern PA, where I live, is surrounded to the north and west by portion of the Appalachian...

March 24-28, 2016

Another holiday weekend was upon us, this one being a full four days! And with me being in between jobs, I had no issues with adding an extra day. Luckily, neither did Dan. And as a bonus, my nephew Matt, who is stationed in Germany, was able to get leave as we...

xx John Day Country, Central Oregon | 22 Mar 16
18:19:41 by SWriverstone | Views: 8133 | Comments: 22


With sunshine on Saturday, I decided last-minute (like literally Saturday morning) to pack up the bike and head east. Didn't get on the road 'til 10am, mainly due to indecision over where I was going to go, last-minute pouring over maps, etc. (And I would've posted looking for company if it wasn't so last-minute).

Anyway, it was a great ride—with some "difficult" moments here and there...and I learned a lot about riding in Central/Eastern Oregon—here were my "lessons:"

1. Get over the mountains the day (or night) before. I spent almost 3hrs getting to Prineville, which was where the ride real...

xx ...around the Adriatic Sea [mostly and very many photographs] | 21 Oct 15
21:36:11 by Daniel Kalal | Views: 7264 | Comments: 17


How about a ride around the Adriatic Sea?
Earlier this summer I rode to Scotland; so, the opposite route would be  to to ride towards  the Balkans and then complete the loop around the Adriatic Sea by crossing  back to Italy and returning north.
I would allow the route to decide itself each morning, but I had  some general plan to ride as far south as Patras, Greece before crossing  over to Italy.  It didn't happen that way; things sometimes work out  differently.
New Jersey
It was once a Continental flight, and now it's a United flight, but for all  the times I've done this, only one route has ever made sense: the...

xx 2015: Almost a month in France and Spain | 17 Oct 15
13:32:25 by FJR-UK | Views: 10630 | Comments: 47


This was a make or break trip for us. Keeping/selling the FJR hinged on a successful trip after being seriously inconvenienced by the dreaded “spider bite” two years ago in the Dolomites.

smiley Journey To The Manx Grand Prix | 16 Oct 15
14:24:56 by Orson | Views: 7339 | Comments: 19

Well, I guess I can't really call it a journey since, from my friend's farm house in north Shropshire to the Liverpool was all of 40 miles  Embarassment However, an 0900 Thursday morning check in time and never having been to Liverpool meant that I had to get underway at the crack of dawn. Worried that I would miss the ferry, I hardly slept a wink that night. Before the sun had risen, I was underway to Liverpool. Due to my early departure, I beat the rush hour traffic and after a few wrong turns (no GPS) and with the helpful directions from a bus driver, I made it to the ferry docks with plenty of time to spare.

The two-wheeled eye candy began make an appearance as more bikes started to arrive.


xx Lolo, Rattlesnake, Hell's Canyon, Palouse | 15 Jun 15
20:56:14 by bubba zanetti | Views: 11705 | Comments: 30

Friday morning I had to do a little work, but got clear by 10am. Plan was to meet alphabetman and Ross in Lolo at Lochsa Lodge. I had one of the rustic cabins booked and so decided I did not want to get in too late and so opted for a ride down through Metalline Falls to Post Falls and then jump on I90 to make some time. As I got into Coeur D'Elaine I noticed the wind really picking up. Gassed up and headed east. Part of I90 runs along the lake and the wind was extremely gusty. Crossing the major bridge there, I noticed the usual warning signs about high wind and glanced ahead at the wind socks on the bridge. One was pointed east and the other swinging wildly to the west. Crossing over was not fun as the big gusts were throwing out of my lan...
