orson has just lost his right to complain about me not taking a "real" bike ride around here: I've been to the Mediterranean and back  

There's a helluva lot of information from this ride, even though it only took place over 4 days. Or maybe I should say, "I put a helluva a lot of information" into this ride  Bigsmile  Therefore, I'm going to break up the pages into four, one for each day. Day 1 is linked above, and I'll add the other links here as I complete them. And of course, here are some photos for your vi...

xx Four Days in the Ozarks | 16 Jul 13
10:16:15 by Jetpilot5 | Views: 31515 | Comments: 27


Fudge and I have known each other for a while now, first meeting at a Region 4 Coffee Meet a number of years ago.  I’ve been fortunate enough to take a few trips with him, including an STN National in West Virginia, CSTN in Eureka Springs, Arkansas and a couple of long weekends running the letter roads in SW Wisconsin.

For a while we had been trying to make arrangements to do another trip and when the BBQ run over the four day July 4th weekend in Monett, Missouri was posted, we discussed going but decided that we would keep our options open.  With about a week to go to departure we had settled on riding to Lexington, Kentucky and then exploring some of the roads east of there.  Only two days b...

xx Riding Swiss passes - does it ever get old? | 14 Jul 13

June 13, 2013

Almost two weeks prior I had been led by a local across some of Switzerland’s most coveted and famous motorcycle riding roads. Now it was my turn to lead. Bob (from the ride to Le Grand Balloon) and Dan were excited to see these roads for themselves and we set aside Saturday for the fun.

We had been advised to get an early start, as many other riders (and drivers and sightseers) would have the same idea. That in mind, we agreed to meet at 6:30 am and make quick work of the autobahn between here and Olten. From there it would be noth...

xx Selling the House and Going to California. Electrifying! | 11 Jul 13

In 1968, when my wife Page was seven years old, her folks built a vacation house on the north shore of Lake Tahoe.  They had four kids (Mark, Ross, Page, and Sally) so it had three bedrooms, including one extra large dorm style bedroom for the kids and two bathrooms.  Although it might have been deluxe accommodations by the standards of the time, it is now considered modest.

In 1968 a carport was enough.

Page has a mental lockerful of childhood memories that revolve around this house.  On Friday nights the family would pile in the Ford Country Squire, complete with wood side panels, and drive up to the cabin from their house in San Francisco.  The boys would go skiing at Incline in t...

xx The French Alps & Tuscany: A picture trip report (long) | 10 Jul 13

It's that time of year again. Ready for a trip. Smile On Saturday the 22nd of June we left, heading south. First stop was near Verdun to visit the WW1 memorial site. Massively impressive.

While we were there, a platoon of French military came marching up for some history lessons.


xx My child-free trip to South Lake Tahoe | 09 Jul 13
11:18:34 by bluepoof | Views: 16235 | Comments: 54

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...

xx Our Trip through Tuscany, Sardinia, and Corsica | 26 May 13
01:00:06 by Dan C | Views: 12837 | Comments: 12

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 ...
