About a year ago…


…I decided to stop blogging. It has really been quite a year and many things have happened. I will try to shorten it down just to make it easy on both of us. First, after getting off of Protection Island I went back to…

A Close One


Today, while riding my motorcycle in town, I had my face shield up because I was going slow and it was pretty warm. All of a sudden a wasp – yes, a wasp – flew inside my helmet and landed on my cheek. The…

I got a lot done to the bike this past weekend in preparation for our Oregon road trip next week. Oil and rear drive fluid changes, new K&N air filter, new plugs, suspension adjustments, wash and wax…it was a busy one. We have pretty…
