Ride Reports
Sometimes you gotta love airplanes. Tuesday was riding Scotlandís Aberdeenshire lowland / highlands, Wed was a flight to California and Thursday was riding the Santa Cruz Mountains Ė both riding days in brilliant sunshine.

The plan is a ride with daughter Chere' for a week south from Los Gatos and the southern Sierras starting in Bodfish and working our way north to Volcano. After which Chere' will ride back to Los Gatos and I'll go to Sacramento and hook up with Demenshea (Donna) for a 3 week, 6,000 mile ride to Jasper, Alberta via Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Alberta, BC, Washington, Oregon and back to Los Gatos (Sac for Donna).

Tuesday. Ducati 1098S, Aberdeen to Strathdon, Scotland Ė the back way.

Joe wanted to visit a pal in Strat...

Alps 2011

Peter, Frank, Dave and Me


I think it's fair to say that from the moment I first turned a wheel onto Passo Sella in 2009 I've been planning this return trip. That experience, shared with my friend Jim (trflyboy on STN) was, by an overwhelming margin, the most amazing time I've spent on two wheels. It took 2 years to make it happen, but on June 11th I was back on an airplane headed for Europe.

But let's back up a little.

First up was putting together a crew o...

June 10th, 2011
Day #1 Ė Vacation is finally here.

It always feels like Christmas morning the day I wake up before a big ride. Jamie and I were headed out later

this afternoon to start our 9 day journey to Colorado. I had originally set up a trip for the Lone Star BMW

Riders that would take them to parts on NM, AZ, UT and CO before heading back to North Texas. That ride was

still on; however Jamie and I had to make some changes. These were due to some miss communication on my part

and I wanted to see my son Alec. So looking at the time table we decided to get in a visit with Alec as well

xx I <3 Dolomiti ^^^ | 01 Jul 11

I was fortunate enough to join KenDenton, GasGauge and NearlySeventy on a twisty filled ride through the Dolomites.  This is my first trip report, and it's just the appetizer!  I'm pretty sure Ken will be presenting the main course when he returns from his extended trip.  

My wife and I like to travel.  There have been many times in the past as we're driving on some twisty little road Ė maybe along the Umpqua River or up to the monastery at Montserrat Ė that she'll say to me "I'll bet you wish you were on your motorcycle."  And she's right!  (Aren't they always?;-)  Well this was my chance to ride some of the most awesome roads I've ever seen, and I...

Ride Reports
Despite being an AMA member for years and having attended AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days in central Ohio, I had never made it to the AMA Museum.  I changed that this past weekend, and squeezed in some excellent West Virginia and Ohio roads along the way with a couple friends of mine.  

Day 1: NYC (for me) to Savage River State Forest, MD

The other guys needed to pick up backpacker meals and a few other supplies so we set Cabela's in Hamburg PA as the meeting spot approximately when they opened at 8, so I knocked out 2 hours of slab to start the day.  Following Cabela's we took 895 to Gold Mine Rd then made our way to Millersburg, PA where the last ...

xx 16 day ride to the USA four corners | 27 Jun 11

Ride Reports
The original plan for this trip was for Sandy (my wife), my brother Pete, and I to take 8-9 days to go to the STN national meet in Custer. However, Sandy and I were inattentive, and she took her vacation from work with the assumption that the national would be during the 3rd vs. the 2nd week of June. When we realized our mistake, and that Sandy could not make it to the national, Pete and I decided to skip the national, and head out west with no particular plan in mind. Sandy would then fly to Albuquerque when her vacation started, we would pick her up at the airport, and then the three of us would ride for another 8-9 days.

We only had two specific goals...

xx Four days on the Guzzi NW USA and BC | 24 Jun 11

Ride Reports
I thought I would share the ride I took the last 4 days, now donít expect far away exotic places, unless you are not from North America,  donít expect the literary skills of Orson or DD but I hope you enjoy it any way. I am often surprised  that a lot of people easily forget how great we have it when it comes to motorcycle roads in the  NW USA and BC. I canít remember the last time I was so tired from turning, not tired of, but tired from.

It was time to take the LeMans out for a spin, for those that donít know I recently purchased a 2003 Moto Guzzi Lemans Rosso Corsa. The Guzziís previous owner or owners had only run up a total of 2400 kilometres, not e...

For those who don't want the nitty gritty, a link to the pix is at the bottom...

After 30 years of riding, the last 20 or so primarily on liter+ ST bikes (ST1100, ST1300, Sprint 1050), a move to the PNW threw gas on the long smoldering ADV/Enduro fire for me. After about a year of researching different options (and waiting to see what Triumph brought to market), and their subsequent depth of accompanying third party options, the DR650 platform survived the attrition of an ever shrinking list. The idea I had in mind was to start with a platform that I could modify to do just about everything from some moderate trail time with...
