Dear Family & Friends, I am not even sure what day it is.. I have lost all concept of days and dates.. sign of a successful vacation! So to get you caught up. Yesterday we were finally got to see the Isle of Skye. Five years ago when  Duane and I were on a motorcycle trip here we attempted to get...
                  Thursday August 9th Dear Family & Friends, This is the official start of the Old Farts United Kingdom Motorcycle Tour (OFUKMT). My four friends from California arrived in the UK Tuesday afternoon. Duane Leib, Brian Louwe, Ray Reid, and Mark Johnston.

Monday June 25th   Dear Family & Friends,   I now have absolute proof of global warming… The weather is England is unbelievably good. Clear blue sky and it is getting warmer and warmer.. Today it actually reached the 80s..!! The prediction is for record heat this week. It is hard to believe I am in England except for the beautiful countryside. Last night I stayed...
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...
