Saturday June 23rd Dear Family & Friends, Another day, another bit of culture…. I left my B&B near Oxford this morning and rode an entire 20 minutes to Bicester.. the next town north. Just outside of town there is an abandoned WW2 air field. A few years ago a developer tried to buy it and build a large housing development but a group...

A 90% Day…

Tuesday June 19th Dear Family & Friends, Today was quite a full day.. Before I get into talking about today's activities I will pontificate a bit…. First I have noticed very surprisingly that houses in Ireland tend to be rather new. Most that I have seen are 20-30 years old and many much newer. Unlike England where there are lots of old...
Wednesday June 13th Dear Family & Friends, Today I awoke in Kearney and the sky was gray and cool but no rain so I decided to go riding. Todays route was along the Dingle Peninsula , a famous road known for it’s beauty. Again I had no specific destination or schedule so I figured I would ride as long as it was fun. The...
Tuesday June 12th Dear Family & Friends, Today was a nice relaxing touristy type day… I got up at a reasonable hour and had a traditional Irish breakfast.. The staff at the classic Victorian era hotel where I was staying was exceedingly nice and friendly.. I loaded up my bike and was pleased to see another good weather day. The first leg of today’s journey...
Sunday June 10th Dear Family & Friends, I missed last night’s blog for a very good reason…. Ireland is a small country and everything is close by. Since it was the weekend Bonnie and her girlfriend and her husband (who was visiting her) decided to take a weekend drive. When Bonnie and I talked Friday night we discovered we were going...
Friday June 8th Dear Family & Friends, Today was about as close to perfect as you can get on a motorcycle trip! I got up this morning after a good nights sleep, had a good Irish full breakfast and got on my motorcycle ready to explore… I had no particular destination but I thought the city of Cork was at least the right...
June 6th   Dear Family & Friends,   I am off on another adventure…. This is going to be a rather long blog since I am getting you caught up on the last week….   First I am going to be in Europe for three months so you will probably get tired of hearing from me.. just remember where the DELETE key is. The first month...
Our local active motorcycle club is the Coast Riders and April 27th& 28th we rode from SLO to Willow Springs Raceway near Rosamond, CA for the annual vintage motorcycle races. Always a fun event. I love the old bikes because they are so different and you can really see how they work. 100% mechanical with no fancy electronics or...
First the big news..... Dear Family & Friends,   Bonnie and I have had a long and successful career as owners and operators of XKs Unlimited, but 44 years is a long time! We would like to announce that we have sold XKs Unlimited! It is time to move on. We have kept XKs Motorsport, the restoration division which is my first love....

  Day 8&9 Dear Family & Friends, OK I missed a day! It was a late night last night….. So Tuesday I left Bend, Or. on my own. My riding buddy Brian needed to head home for work. I really enjoy riding with him, but riding solo also has a special charm. Being on the road alone gives me a total sense of...
