This year marked the 100th anniversary of Il Gyro d'Italia so, I thought it would be neat to catch the Stelvio stage of Il Gyro. Headed north out of Parma on my faithful Guzzi to our first night's stay on the shores of Lake Garda

Lago d'Idrio

I had arrived while the Mille Miglia was being run. I knew sumthin was up as, I kept seeing whole slews of classic cars. These blokes were heading back to the UK in their Ferraris

xx Mud is Evil | 01 Jul 17

This year I bought a Super Ténéré to ride on dirt roads as well as paved roads.  I haven’t had a chance to ride many dirt roads yet but on the few occasions that I did, nothing went wrong. However, Thursday (June 29) I got in over my head on one that had mud and deep ruts. In case you didn’t know, mud and deep ruts are evil, especially if you are riding a heavy bike.  

The day started quite nicely for Paul, Dave and I. They were riding their Wee Stroms. We did some paved roads, had lunch in Sussex NB and then decided to revisit a dirt road that Paul and I had started to do earlier this spring but turned away because it was still too early in the year. This time it looked a lot better and we were progressing very well in 2nd and 3rd gear ...

Ride Reports
Jamie and I had a fantastic 10 day trip. We got to see a part of the country that we do not get to visit very often. I have completed the ride report. It is 8 pages and has many pictures attached. I am posting the link to the Report as it is too lengthy to re post here on the forum. I will also post a few images that might get you excited about the ride report.

Read about the trip here:

I arrived in Ol' Blighty not sure if I would head north or south until I got the weather outlook. South didn't look very good and north looked even worse. I began the trip from Shropshire by cutting over into Wales to catch the A483, an old favorite that cuts a twisty path into South Wales. A Tunnel of green

and on into the Exmoor National Park where there are some comfortable roads that match the Truxton's engine output

I posted in the "what happened to the forum thread" that I would post up some of our old ride reports, so here it goes.

My ride reports are generally rides that my wife and I do. Many times, my daughter Kristin joined us, a few are my solo rides, and occasionally other riders have come along. Most are in Oklahoma, several in Arkansas, and a few in other states. These were all written for a private, members-only type forum because my wife was uncomfortable with making them public. Now, she says it's okay to post them.

My reports are primarily picture reports and light on the text. They are mostly dual-sport, country road type rides but we do a few longer rides on our street bikes too. I try to include a little of the history or backgro...

xx A Ride to Adelboden | 27 Feb 17

Ok, going to post the full content because someone (*Blue* *cough* *Best*) was complaining about a lack of motorcycle content. And since i have 1)  a motorcycle, 2) good weather and 3) time, here is a fresh ride report.

Feast your eyes, suckers!!  Cool

It was my birthday and there was only one thing I wanted: to ride my motorcycle with Dan into the mountains and have lunch under a sunny sky. To my delight, the day was sunny and the roads were clear. My only problem was my thumb: five days earlier I had a little accident on my bicycle and badly sprained the thumb on my right hand. I could use the hand (Hey! Look at me typing this up!) but it would not very comfortable on the throttle. Oh well - it was my birthday and I didn't care!...

xx Grand tour of Japan | 28 Dec 16

Some more photos of Japan from me.

Got sidelined before posting so these were taken October just prior to the leaves changing colour in earnest.

My original plan was to ride north to see the autumn colours which start sooner but some of those prefectures got smashed up with a typhoon and then one of my favourite areas south is still rebuilding from a devastating earthquake so I did a bit of each way instead.

I rode up to near Mt Bandai volcano and then did a loop the next day there, wonderful roads. Then two incredible routes in high mountains to historic Nikko region.
