Salt Lake City to Moab, Utah

Review: Schuberth to Shoei – A Welcome Change!

Bozeman to Great Falls, MT (Stella Radiant Drystar)

5,000 km Review: Alpinestars Stella Radiant Drystar Glove

Finding the right fit and protection all wrapped up into one good mit can get expensive and frustrating. Leather vs. textile, short vs. long, tight fit vs. loose. The overall feel of the glove can vary from shop to bike and the saying “fits like a glove” can be misleading in some cases. I find […]

Jedediah Smith SP to Fort Bragg, CA (Avenue of the Giants)

Avenue of the Giants

I still can’t believe how well we’ve been sleeping. When we first started camping, it always took a day or so to settle in and get a really good night sleep. Trying to get used to the sounds and the thoughts that can creep into ones mind in the middle of the night beyond the […]

Days Off in Portland, OR

The Heart of Portland

We had finally arrived after a longer than expected day on Thursday. A handful of minor detours extending our road time and made for an adventurous 6 plus hours on the bikes, that began just after 8:30am. By 5:00pm we were battling our way through highway 84 rush hour traffic. Everyone was jockeying for position […]

Vancouver, BC

Two Days, Too Short

I was still half asleep when the sound of the first siren went hastily by in the streets below our hotel on Burrard Street. The voice of an lively city is so familiar to me and I knew instantly I was going to love it here. It seemed to possess some of the elements and […]

Building Your Perfect Tool Kit

I’ve always wanted to be the type of person, that in any given situation would have the ability to break down my ride and put her right back together again on the spot without cause for concern. I’ve been riding now for quite a few years and I hate to say, I’m still completely oblivious […]
