Two of my friends, Kharon & Holly, were celebrating their half-century birth days and invited some friends to join them in Little River (near Mendocino) at the Andiron Lodge for a weekend of fun and frivolity. I decided to ride since the weather was looking good and I wanted to do a little reserach for the Manchester ride... plus there were some roads I hadn't ridden in a long time and wanted to check out again. So I left early on Saturday and slabbed it over to Hwy. 1, Panoramic Hwy, and then Ridgecrest Drive along the top of Mt. Tamalpais... it was cool and quite breezy but the views were stellar...  http://tinyurl.com/...

I had dinner with friend and mentor, Robert Haas, a couple of months ago and he asked when we were going to do another skills day. So we coordinated our calendars, found a mutual date, made the announcement, and 15 riders made the time to come out and work on their moto skills. The two things we focused on were proper use of brakes for turning and quick stops in a turn and not dropping your bike. We had one experienced group and one with newer riders, who would take turns doing the exercises with Robert giving them feedback along the way.

Verbal instruction first... notice the t-shirt... LOL

Some of you may have read and remember the ride report from last year’s spring break trip that my Son and I took to Baja. http://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,71204.0.html. This year we went bigger with a off road riding trip to Costa Rica with https://www.mototourscostarica.com/
 As I mentioned in the first ride report, my Son and I have been riding off road since he was old enough to ride and XR50 , but now he is in college and I have to bribe him to spend time with me.
 
First of all before I get into the pictures, I’d like to say that Moto Tours Costa Rica is a first rate outfit. Very professional, delivered what they promised on time and with no extra costs. They picked us...


xx Balkan-Istanbul, exploring south-eastern Europe | 03 Feb 13

After last years trip through Russia and Scandinavia, I wanted to go south. South-eastern to be exact. This time, a friend is joining me on a trip through Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece. We came home with many new experiences, countless interesting encounters and impressions of great landscapes. To be honest, I didn't know the Balkans are THAT beautiful. Really, it's a rough diamond and this hasn't been the last time I was there.

xx Dual Sporting in New Mexico - for a few days.... | 16 Jan 13

Quick ride to Alto, New Mexico

Dual sporting Capitan

The best way to get into the area that provides excellent dual-sport options is to take CR0002. It is located just east of Capitan on highway 380. Once on this CR, you have several options but I opted for the class 3 trails, so if you stay on CR0002 you eventually reach the Capitan Gap sign pictured below.

If you continue on this road it changes into NF557. However, many roads in that area did not show up on my GPS, so my suggestion is just to take whatever trail you like and then backtrack using your GPS breadcrumb trail. The other alternative is stop...


xx Westward Ho 2 or How to ALMOST end a vacation before it starts. | 25 Dec 12

This Vacation started on June 29th and we returned home on July 13.

Due to the wildfires burning in Colorado this trip was in doubt up until a week before we left. We kept watching the news and going to the CDOT site for updates. Colorado 14 was closed so I had to come up with an alternate route just in case.



Let’s start with the bikes

ME:
2005 Yamaha FJR1300 ABS
Beginning Mileage: 86,268
Ending Mileage: 91,068

2006 Yamaha FJR1300A

Ending Mileage: 81,532


This ride report actually starts and almost ended on June 2, 2012 at Road America in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin.

After arriving...


xx 1700 miles in three days | 12 Nov 12

I needed to visit the four Tour of Honor sites in Northern California and wanted to meet and ride with some guys out of Sacramento locally known as the Old Farts. Soooo, consulting the local crystal ball for weather, I decided the week of October 15 would be better than the week of the 22nd. That and some of the Old Farts would be out of town the week of 8 October sort of narrowed it down a bit.

Team orson embarks on a quickie, one-week venture across the border to the motorcycling playground that is the south of France.

Departing from team orson's world headquarters in Parma, we stick to the backroads as we make our way across the Appenine mountains to the coast. The early fall temperatures combined with the altitude serve to feed the mighty, mighty goose with a horespower boost in the form of cool, mountain air. We reach the coast by late afternoon and get a hotel room near Portofino. I didn't take any pictures, so I'll cheat and use a picture from a previous trip  Embarassment



In a bid to save time, the next day's route will be a blast up the Ligurian coast along the autostrada, the same st...
