I started this blog in November 2010. This page of the site is about a selection of the photos I’ve taken since January 2011. The photos are monthly statements about places I visited, events I attended and anything else I paid attention to along the way.

Had the pleasure of meeting Jenny Morgan and the privilege of riding with her! More after the end of the 2019 Death Valley adventure! #cb500xadventure #cb500x #cb500xrallyraidstage3 #rallyraid #rallyraidproducts #crystalcranehotsprings #giantloopmoto #giantloop #giantloopannualride #honda #motorcycle #motorcycles #canongx1Back to the epic ride on the 2019 Death Valley Adventure. The sun had passed its midday point long time ago and we had just reached Saline Valley rd. We still had to climb Lippincott Pass. If we thought this was getting late and was a beating, we had no idea what was in store for us. First we miscalculated the number of riders. We were nine but when we all grouped on the junction to Lippincott, the end of this video, we realized one of the riders was missing, and no one knew exactly the last time we had seen him. It’s getting late and we pull our inReach gadgets (we knew he had one), and sent him messages. We also notify a Jeep going that way (back to Saline Springs) of his bike, name. He finally shows up when the sun is close to set. He had taken a wrong turn back from Steele Pass, just before the saline springs and we did not realize that until two stops later. We need to change our group riding settings! Anyway, it’s late and we have to climb Lippincott! That’s where the beating really happens! #deathvalley #deathvalleyriders #deathvalleynationalpark #adventureriding #adventure #yamahamotorcycles #wr250r #motorcycle #motorcycles #goprohero7 #gopro #hypersmooth #garmininreachToday is a day to remember all who sacrificed their lives or well being for the good of everyone else. I took the day to work on my bikes, do maintenance, oil change in the Ducati. An intermittent engine light or error came up and then it was gone. I guess the bike is begging to be ridden. Soon! #ducati #ducatimultistrada1200 #multistrada1200s #multistradapikespeak #triumph #triumphtiger #triumphtiger800xc #honda #hondacb500x #hondacb500xadventure #cb500xrallyraid #yamaha #yamahawr250r #hondacx500 #cx500projectYesterday I went to the Oregon Vintage Motorcycles (OVM) show and swap meet and came across this tastefully done 1981 Honda CX500. Which helped me think about my 1980 CX500 that is finally in running order, and I’m starting to think about the direction I will take it. It will not be a caferacer, it will be more of a flat tracker. There will be some frame cutting, but it will be a lot less intrusive than what this guy has done. But it gives a chance for an eventual next owner to take it there, make something similar to this beauty here, should they desire that look. #hondamotorcycles #cx500 #cx500caferacer #cx500scrambler #oregonvintagemotorcycleshow #oregonvintagemotorcyclists #ovm #caferacerMore of the 2019 Death Valley adventure. This time we were going past Warm Springs, down from Steele Pass, on our way to Saline Rd. From there we would be going up Lippincott Pass, which turned to be the greatest challenge of this long loop, effectively turning this into an epic ride. But I’m going ahead of myself here.
