About this Blog

I don’t really have much to say at this juncture.  I am getting this blog up and running for my intended July 2012 motorcycling adventures through 4 states and over 2,000 miles.  I have been planning this ride for roughly 12 months and in less than one month it will become a reality.

Dash is the bike that I will be riding…see him to the right of this page.  It is a 1976 Honda CB550 and I chose a 1976 purposefully because to hear my family tell it I began in 6th grade to pester my parents to buy me a Puch moped (to no avail I might add) and by my Freshman year in High School I was still insisting that a moped was a reasonable suggestion.  I eventually gave up but I never forgot.

I plan on writing from the road and also using a SPOT to track my real time ride.  So for now this will have to do.

I have been keeping this blog now since 2012 (it is 2015) and a lot has changed.  I now use the Delorme to track my ride and help me feel safe when I ride alone.  I also purchased another bike (2005 S2R 800 Ducati) which I love just as much as I love Dash.  She is called Bernadette.  Two very different rides that is for certain.  See the picture of Bernadette to the right of this page and just below Dash.

  1. OK my fave description was “now I know what it feels like to be a popcorn kernal in a hot popper” It looks like you are having an amazing time 🙂 p.s. you should go on more of these cause I like reading about what you are doin.I guess that qualifies for the people who have nothing better to do? hahahaaha ok I AM at work but thats besides the point.Barry pretty much said it was ok since he sent me the link right?

  2. Super impressed with your adventures on the 550. I have one too. Looking forward to reading about your travels here and posts on the sohc forum.
