Happy New Year!!!

 Here's wishing you all a Happy and Healthier New Year!

Some pictures from my travels over this past year.....my predilection for solitude would become mandatory "Social Distancing" during 2020.  So glad this year is over.

Happy New Year and 2015 in Pictures

Got home from Walsenburg around noon today, figured out the power loss issue (clogged air filter, swapped in GMH (get me home) used filter and was good to go!  Oh, and ran out of gas just short of  Larkspur, CO but the spare tank got me going.

Scarlett did great on this trip and this year!

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
