  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...
Day 7 Dear Family & Friends, Today was one of those surprise days.. We knew we had a fairly long ride from Nampa, ID to Bend Oregon and we thought it would be mostly flat, boring, highway through eastern Oregon which is mostly high desert. We left Nampa early and headed west on the freeway for about half an hour and then...
Day 6 Dear Family & Friends, Before I get into todays events I need to respond to the usual few emails I get commenting about my creative spelling… Here are my three excuses. 1- I never claimed to be very good at grammar or spelling. My degree is in engineering. 2-The spell check I use often tries to complete the words for me before...
Day 5 Dear Family & Friends, Today was our last day at the BMW rally. It is quite the event. Amazing number of vendors selling everything you could think of for motorcycle touring. They also had all sorts of demonstrations and seminars and different subjects. We also went to a bike show there for vintage BMW motorcycles which was way cool...
Day 4 Dear Family & Friends, Today we attended the MOA national BMW rally at the Utah State Fairgrounds.. It was good to have a day with no riding.. The event is a massive display of all things BMW and motorcycle touring.. Lots to see and do. There are seminars all weekend long. Today I learned about the electronics system of BMWs...
Day 3 Dear Family & Friends, One more day’s ride to our first destination, Salt Lake City, Ut. The ride should only be a few hours but we wanted to leave early to avoid the heat. So we found a classic road side dive dinner and had a good travel breakfast. Normally we ride an hour or so before breakfast, but once...
Day 2 Dear Family & Friends, Another day, and another adventure.. One of the things I love about motorcycle travel is you never know what the day has in store for you let alone what is around the next turn. We had a long ride ahead of us going from Jamestown to Ely, NV. so we got up and we were on...
All clean and ready to ride. My Friend Brian, ready to lead the way... Dear Family & Friends, Day one of our adventure.. The first leg of our trip is a three day ride to Salt Lake City, Utah for the National BMW riders convention.. I am riding with a friend of mine, Brian Louw. I really enjoy riding with him because...
Dear Family & Friends, Today I am warming up my blogging skills since next week I am off on a two week motorcycle trip.. Thanks to my daughter, Jessica's redesign of my blog I now have space to cover cars & motorcycles, travel, and food.. Todays blog will be cars and food. Every year in Santa Margarita, CA they have a 1/10...
What’s the day and date??   Dear Family & Friends,   Been without internet for a few days so let me get you caught up…… A couple of days ago we were staying on the south side of the Amalfi Coast in t small town of Maori. It was a quiet and enjoyable time right on the coast. Our next stop was Sorrento. We got off to an early start...
