I am heartbroken about recent devastation wreaked upon places where I have worked, trained, and supported on over 20 visits throughout my working career. There is little I can do at this stage of my life and work situation other than make financial donations and approve waivers of bureaucratic policies that would otherwise be enforced.
So while my heart is in the Caribbean, I am taking time out to divert my sadness with more pleasant memories. I cannot believe it was exactly eight weeks ago today that…
Or… “why are there fewer young motorcycle riders?”
My friend WC asked me
Why are bikers an aging population, and why aren’t there more bikers on real bikes (not crotch-rockets)?
Hmmm… while I may not choose to ride a “crotch-rocket” (that is, a small motorcycle built for speed), they are motorcycles nonetheless. So to the first question…
While things have been busy in the BHD world, I was able to get out for an early morning ride to one of my favorite places with my favorite biker cousin last Saturday. Since my work shift was scheduled from noon to midnight, yet I was awake as usual at oh-dark-30, and The Spouse was feeling lousy so he wanted to rest, I thought…
While twin brother J was visiting family and I had some time while Spouse was napping this past weekend, I finally had time to create a gallery of some 376 still photos that I took (or were taken by “S” of me) on our “Crazy-Awesome Motorcycle Adventure” in Utah at the end of July.
Yep, August 16 came and went. I gave myself a present — took the day off work. At home, the spouse did his usual thing: gave me a card, a rose from our garden, a kiss and a hug, then asked “what’s for breakfast?” (He really doesn’t celebrate or care for birthdays, even “milestone” days like this day was for me.)
But before we sat down for breakfast, the doorbell rang. “Who’s that?” demanded the Spouse. Well, ’twas another surprise. Out on the lawn there rose such a clatter that…
In the whirlwind of my return from Utah, I have not had or made time to get out on my own Harley. Spouse has required a lot of attention with errands hither-and-yon, not to mention catching up with my lovely LOLITS and their grocery shopping needs.
Unfortunately, my “summer commute to work via Harley” is over for the year. Why?
Some people have asked, “what boots did you bring with you and wear on your recent motorcycle ride in Utah?
Good question. Readers won’t believe that…
I have produced one more video, this time much longer (7 minutes), while riding into Zion National Park via its eastern entrance road. (The video is viewable at the bottom of this post after the jump.)
This was yet another awesome geological experience to view on two wheels. What I enjoyed most about this park was…
My video production from my “helmetcam” (a GoPro Hero 5) continues. After visiting Canyonlands National Park on the morning of 27 July, we rode a short distance (distances in the huge state of Utah are relative), and rode into Arches National Park near Moab. I will describe what we did in the park, and video from our ride is down below. Read on!
This park is claimed to be…
I have returned home from my personal and business visit to Utah, and have had a little time to begin to process video from my crazy-awesome motorcycle adventure.
Canyonlands National Park is the first of the five national parks that we visited. Each national park we visited is different. This park…
