I am on a road trip!  My already tenuous grasp on sanity was weakening with every passing day, so I convinced Peter to be a stay-at-home dad for four days.  The goal is for me to be A Real Person and remember what life is like when one talks to adults and does not have to read “The Lost (and Found) Balloon” and “Hop on Pop” upwards of 20 times per day.

So, this morning I hopped on the Ninjette and aimed east-ish.  My first stop was the Stockton Rural Cemetery (7 points for the Equinox to Equinox Rally!).  I didn’t take any photos between my house and Stockton because no one wants to waste their time looking at photos of hot East Bay interstates.

Between Stockton and Jackson; yes, it’s as hot as it looks.  In the midwest, that scenery ...

Ride Report 5/4/2013:

An inmate reached out to me after reading one of my ride reports. Gord, who lives in Canada, would be attending a wedding in a neighboring state and had decided to bring his Vee so that he could spend a week riding in the southeastern United States. Gord asked for my assistance with the selection of the best motorcycling roads in the area. I told Gord that I'd not only be happy to plan some routes for him, but that I'd also be happy to join him for 4 days.



I carved up some routes and a plan quickly fell together.

Gord would be attending a wedding on the other end of North Carolina. His plan was to leave Hampstead, NC on Friday and ride to Clemson, SC. We would meet...

This spring my wife and I celebrated our anniversary, birthdays, and Christmas with a motorcycle tour in Europe.  This time it would be the Tuscany, Sardinia, and Corsica Tour through Adriatic Mototours.  The tour started in Mestre, Italy, which is on the mainland across from Venice.   It wound its way through Tuscany to the west coast, where we caught an overnight ferry to Sardinia.  After riding a couple of days on Sardinia, another ferry took us to Corsica for a few days, and then a final ferry took us back to the Italian mainland for the final dash back to Mestre (Venice).



We decide to arrive early and hang out in Venice for a ...


xx Passwang - first steps in Switzerland | 20 May 13

Today Dan and I took a couple of hours to head out on a shake down ride on the motorcycles. We kept it short simply because it was the first time out, the weather wasn't all that great and we got a late start. But it was a great ride and really showed us that perceived concerns about traveling on Swiss roads are entirely unwarranted.



Our biggest experiment today (other than the motorcycles themselves) was to try our new Sena communication systems. We had purchased them just before selling the bikes in New Jersey and hadn't had the chance to really test them out before they got packed up. The headsets were great! Incredibl...


xx Wildflowers and Wild Bikes at The Quail | 08 May 13

Last weekend I was scheduled to attend my riding group's Wildflower Ride to The Hacienda at Fort Hunter Leggett. While I did make part of the ride, I had an unexpected and delightful detour along the way.

Some friends, Dorothy, Geoff, and Brent, had bikes exhibited at The Quail Gathering in Carmel, an annual event showcasing motorcycles from the past, present and future... Dorothy told me about a group ride on Friday morning with all the entry bikes and I asked if I could tag along for a bit before meeting up wit...

A couple of years ago a friend had organized a ride up to Manchester and it was such a great ride, I decided to recreate it with about 30 of my closest personal friends! Coffee first and then a quick jaunt for the second meet at the Golden Gate Bridge...






Lots of hugs as friends reunited once again...

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/...


xx Skills Drills & Thrills! | 09 Apr 13

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
