xx Ireland [mostly and many photographs] | 25 Jun 18

Ride Reports

This is a ride from Italy to Brittany, ferry to England and Wales, ferry  to Ireland, and then ferry back to France and Italy.
Several years back (in 2013), I did a ride that was something similar,  but took a direct ferry from France to Ireland and skipped England and  Wales, altogether.  That one was done with just eleven days of riding.   I'll have more time on this ride; there will be less rushing about.
Yes; this is the same ride that I started last year, but that one was  cut short.  Not wanting to leave things unfinished, I planned to  complete that ride this year.

xx The Center of the World | 25 Jun 18

Ride Reports
Getting the bike ready for an August trip from GA to Alaska and back. It's been a few months since I've been on the bike, and now I'm trying to get back into it. My buddy and I took a 3 hour ride yesterday and visited the Georgia Guidestones, and The Center of the World.

It was a typical day here in the southeast. Hot and humid. The temperature was hovering around the 90į mark with about 90% humidity, and no rain.

During this ride I also had the opportunity to try out my new Bead Rider seat cover, Mob Armor phone mount, and my Tour Master Epic Air boots. I'll give a review on all the stuff later when I have more time using them.

2700 Twisty Miles Through, VA, NC, TN, WV and OH

I had such a great time riding the roads around Sparta, NC for the first time on last yearís ESTO meet that I planned another trip down there this year.  I had 7 open days before I wanted to be at an event at Kingís Island near Cincinnati OH so, with the help of some folks here, I laid out a leisurely route from NJ to OH by way of Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia and Ohio.  Joined, as I often am, by Dave and Peter (nearlyseventy and gasgauge).  Peter was eager to explore more of SE Ohioís roads since you may recall his bike got run over by a tow truck last year after one day in the area and was totaled.  

I took the usual route from southern NJ to get to Front R...

xx Judith Gap, Montana [mostly photographs] | 17 May 18
10:30:09 by Daniel Kalal | Views: 10704 | Comments: 15

Ride Reports

Judith Gap is between two mountains in central Montana: the Little Belt  Mountains and the Big Snowy Mountains.  It is the natural north-south  route that has been used for centuries, perhaps most famously by Chief  Joseph and his bands of Nez Perce during the Nez Perce War of 1877.
Montana-191 is the highway over the gap; it's a road I've not ever  ridden.  That's my goal for this trip.  The rest of this seemingly  random route was just avoiding rain (as best I could), although I did manage  to hit a few more stretches of roads that were new to me (especially in North  Dakota).


xx Global thermonuclear ride; Mt. Rushmore, Badlands and Devilís Tower | 25 Dec 17

Ride Reports
My 60th birthday was on the horizon.  The big six zero is a reminder that I donít have all the time in the world left; you should not not put off things that you are able to do now. Originally this ride was scheduled to be in early June. It got pushed back to July.  I already had scheduled the days off, so I went to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Moki Dugway, Valley of the Gods and Moab in the convertible with my wife.  When this ride was scheduled in July, I could take the time off, so I did.  I donít know if I will ever have the opportunity to go back.

This event was organized by the guys from the Nighthawk forum.  Tim, Nick, Guy, Gary and I attended.  Great group of guys to ride with.
This was a trailering event.  The distance...

xx 2017 Year in Review | 29 Nov 17
15:27:23 by Acadian Rider | Views: 10721 | Comments: 5

Well, the 2017 riding season is now officially over for me. I started riding on April 10 and my last ride was on Oct 31st. Altogether I did 14,464 kms (8,987 miles).  Not great numbers but I plan to do more than that in one trip next year. Iíll have more on that later.

As I did last year, I am sharing some of the highlights of the year just ended. I will try to keep it as short as possible. I will also talk about some off topic highlights and include some pictures. 

Some of the pictures that I am posting for this report were posted in previous threads but thanks to Photobucket, they are all gone from the interwebs now. 


After years of riding mostly paved roads I decided to make a change t...

xx ...canary islands [many photographs] | 27 Nov 17
20:57:58 by Daniel Kalal | Views: 8847 | Comments: 12

Ride Reports
Several years ago while riding in Ireland, I met a couple from the Canary  Islands who were on holiday; they were enthusiastic about their home and  suggested I visit.  But, after looking into the ferry schedules from Cadiz,  Spain I dismissed it as being impractical (at least at that time).
Jump ahead to last February and a Facebook post by Mauricio Sedů (on the  Moto Guzzi National Owners Club page) in response to a cold European rider  who was bemoaning the current weather.  ďCome to the Canary Islands!Ē  said Mauricio.
I've no idea if that cold European ever followed through; but, I did.   I immediately contacted Mauricio and made arrangements for some sort of Guzzi  to...

xx Romania [many, many photographs] | 30 Oct 17

Ride Reports
For many of us, when we think of the great mountain ranges of Europe, we  think of the Alps, the Pyrenees and perhaps the long Scandinavian Mountains.   But, of course, we know there are others.
This trip was planned to be a ride of the entire length of the Carpathian  Mountains (the second longest in Europe), which extend from Serbia, across  Romania, through Ukraine and Poland and end in Slovakia, not all that far  from the east end of the Alps.

Leaving on a Friday is generally easier, as that puts me in Italy for the  first two non-riding days over the weekend.  Also, starting the ride...
