Ride Reports
Last Saturday, I decided it was time for a ride. The place I wanted to see was the Navajo National Memorial, which I have passed many times, but never stopped. When I Googled it, I discovered that it wasn't a memorial to  the Navajo, but part of the National park service and surrounded by tribal land. I left at about 9:00am after it had warmed up to about 40 degrees.

This view is about 10 minutes from our house, in the middle of nowhere. Smile


It's hard to keep going with all the scenery close by, so bear with me.


Soon I got my first glimpse of Monument Valley.

xx Ride report: Colorado Springs > Taos | 17 Oct 11

Ride Reports
Lately we've been getting some great weather for it being October in Colorado. Last week the mountains received a good dumping of snow but the weather forecast promised warm weather and sunny days ahead for the next week.

And they did not disappoint.

Step 1: Target selection!

I decided that I wanted to go somewhere I haven't been to. Given the colder tempetures this time of year, going south into New Mexico was the obvious choice. I started exploring possible routes that were along the north end of New Mexico and settled on Taos, NM.

Step 2: Plan of attack

A route was drawn up that would consist of roughly 4/5 Colorado roads and 1/5 New Mexico. Sfarson, being familiar with the area gave me a few suggestions and we were set.

After a good start to the riding season, my job ate my life in July and August. It didn't help that my wife and I were trying to get our house ready to sell at the same time. I really wanted to do a short trip to the southeast and ride some of my favorite roads, so I planned on extending my ESTN ride to include The Snake, etc. But work ate my life. Again. Had a fine time at ESTN though.

Days are getting shorter, leaves are changing, and the end of riding season is on the horizon. What's this? A weather forecast with SIX days of sunshine and warm temps (70s). That NEVER happens in PA. I considered it a sign from God to ride my motorcycle, work be damned! So I cobbled up a route, tried in vain to find a riding partner, and took off on a fo...


xx Three days on an Enfield in India. | 02 Oct 11

Ride Reports


This was a three day ride on an Enfield from Bangalore, India.

The Royal Enfield Bullet 350cc motorcycle puts out all of 18 horsepower (on a very good day). The 500cc engine does a little better, but you won't see many of those in India. The motorcycle dates from a 1955 contract from the English Royal Enfield company to build motorcycles for the India military. The motorcycle has been made in India since then and
little was changed until 2007 when there was a significant re-design of the engine (it's all new). I'd be riding a pre-2007 model with all the quirks and character that make the Bullet so beloved by so many riders all over the world.

My plan was to do whatever it took...

New Jersey to Nova Scotia (and back)

When Dan and I first hatched this plan we had set aside two weeks in June to travel through most of the eastern Canadian provinces. We were to travel north through Quebec, follow the whole of the TransLabrador Highway (TLH), cross into Newfoundland, down into Nova Scotia and then return home via various New England states. However, Danís work...

Prologue

Beach holidays are not normally our thing. Fifteen minutes in the sun and I'm bored and brushing the sand off. I'd rather be exploring the delights of a big city. This year, we thought we'd do something a bit different and set our sights on Corsica.

The Calanches, Corsica

Research for this three-week trip began in May. Booking of hotel rooms and ferries in July. But unlike last year's trip to Spain where every last detail was planned, I left the return leg of this trip unplanned and open to whim. We had an idea we'd like to explore the Provence area of France, but it would all depend upon the weather and how we were feelin...

Scotland 2011

After spending years on my bucket list, this year I finally got a chance to go to Scotland. A friend from the US, my dad and myself made plans and on Sunday Aug 28 it was finally time to gear up and go. First order of the day was get ourselves and our bikes to IJmuiden for the ferry to Newcastle.


Ferry

After a few hours waiting, we could finally board the ferry (why do bikes go in last??) and strap the bikes down. This required a bit of trial and error with no regular forks to pull down into its suspension travel and lots of plastics we donít want to damage.

Having the bikes strapped down, it was time...
