Me with my wife Bonnie, my life partner and soul mate and some other "Jay"..Dear Family and Friends,Recently I was contacted by an automotive website called CarsYeah! to do an interview. Basically I was asked questions about my automotive career and how I did it. I you want to know more about how I started in the automotive field...
Oct. 25th TuesdayDear Family & Friends,We left Strasbourg and rode a couple of hours to a very small town of Dietrich.  Basically it was a stop over on our way to Belgium.. As a bonus one block from our hotel was the Luxembourg National Automobile museum! So we spent a good 45 minutes there and saw everything twice..Wednesday morning we...
Saturday Oct. 22ndDear Family & Friends,It seems as we approach the end of our adventure time is really going by fast..We spent two enjoyable days in Strausbourg, France.. I would highly recommend the city for a stop on any tour of Europe. It is located on the Northern edge of France right along the German boarder, so it has mixture of French and German culture there. It is a very old city with classic old architecture, a 1000 year old cathedral, a beautiful town square and gentle flowing canals throughout the city. A great place to stroll around. I took several long walks while there and thoroughly enjoyed myself..  Easy to get lost there with all the twisty streets but I completely turned off my navigational responsibilities and left it up to Duane..  We always eventually got back to our hotelOur hotel is a grand old hotel in classic European fashion. Lots of wood details and paneling and an elevator that looked like it was built in the 1800s. An all wood and glass elevator with a wrought iron gate.. Even though it was very old, it worked most of the time.. There were a couple occasions I had to walk the five floor of stairs to get to my room.After two days there it was time to keep moving.. Since we were both tired of riding in big cities and the country side here is so beautiful I booked us rooms in Luxembourg in the small village of Diekrich. It was an easy 2 3/4 hour ride from Strasbourg and the last hour was through some beautiful country lanes passing along villages and forests.. A bonus is the Luxembourg National Automobile Museum was two blocks from our hotel!.  The ride was easy and mostly dry ( a few sprinkles) but as we go father and father north and it is getting to be late fall it is getting COLD! Today it never got out of the 40s range and with the wind chill factor it certainly felt cold. (even with all our riding gear and electric jackets)Once we arrived we checked into our hotel and walked around town. That took about ten minutes. We had lunch and I went for a walk on my own. During my walk I passed by the Luxembourg National Car Museum.....
Oct. 19th WednesdayDear Family & Friends,Well the adventure continues… Kim is home safe and sound and I am relieved. Duane and I left Rome and started working our way north. For two days we just blasted up the highways from Rome to Florence and then Florence to Lake Como. The highways here are FAST.. We cruised at 85-90mph and...
October 15th Saturday?Dear Family & Friends,Yesterday we said good bye to Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. I loved the area but riding a motorcycle there is challenging to say the least.. When it is over, no matter how difficult it is,  you always look back and say, “WOW that was fun”.. We took off in the morning and rode about 45...

Saturday’s Follow Up Report, or Karma is a BitchDear Family & Friends,After I wrote the last report this morning we met for a quick breakfast and an early start to what was supposed to be a short ride of two hours and an afternoon in the city of Cassino.As we met at the motorcycles I could tell something was bothering...
Saturday Oct. ?Dear Family and Friends,This report will be about the fundamental truth of motorcycle traveling…. things don't always go as planned….Thursday we all left Venice after a wonderful week.
