Happy New Year and 2014 in Pictures

Another year has come and gone, and with it, some changes in life and some changes in the stable.

The moto-blogging world lost one of its pioneers when Bobskoot of Wet Coast Scootin passed away while driving with his loving wife Yvonne.  We miss you Bob.

I've changed jobs, hopefully for the foreseeable future, which now has me working fulltime at home.  This opens new travel possibilities but initially all its done is cut down on the amount of miles I ride my motorcycles since I no longer have a commute.

This year saw me trading in my 2006 Suzuki V-Strom/Dauntless Sidecar Rig: Yoshie and my 2011 URAL Patrol Sidecar Rig Valencia to Unique Rides in exchange for my 2014 URAL Patrol Rig: Scarlett.

Here's some of the pictures I used on the blog during 2014, I hope you like the video.

Some stats for record.

Total mileage ridden in 2014: 14,852 miles broken down by motorcycle:

Scarlett: 14,239 Kilometers or 8543 Miles

Brigitta ('87 BMW R80): 4306 Miles

Yoshie: 1485 Miles

Valencia: 864 Kilometers or 518 Miles

This brings my total miles ridden on motorcycles to:  168,523

Martha and I wish you and yours a Happy New Year in 2015!

Last Sunset for 2014

Previously: Yoshie has a new home.

I believe Bob's passing left a scar in all of us one way or another.

I wonder how the continued work from home (or another internet connection) will work out for you. I'd love to try this but my profession unfortunately still requires some presence in the office...)

Best wishes for 2015, and many more miles to come.

Thanks SonjaM. BTW, I added a picture of the last Sunset for us here in Colorado, for 2014....

Loved your year in review, such beautiful scenery. Here's to Bob and here's all the riders and moto bloggers he touched. Happy New Year.

That may be the last sunset for 2014 but think of how many you'll see and photograph for us in 2015.

Happy New Year and all the best in 2015 to you, Martha, and the kids.

VStar Lady, thanks for the kind words. Here's to Bob, and my fellow moto-bloggers indeed.

Trobairitz, I'll do my best. Happy New Year as well to you and Troubadour!
