I was signed up for the How the West Was Won rally in Colorado for mid-August 2018.  But, the rally was cancelled.  I still have approved vacation that I needed to use and there is no use throwing that back in the pool.  Might as well make the best of it.  So, where to go? […]

For the third year in a row, I made the trek out to Belton, Missouri – a suburb of KC – to meet up with other motorcyclists, kick tires and take in some good barbeque. This event is the brainchild of Bob Rippy, who started this four years ago.  http://mls2go.blogspot.com/  It started out small, but […]

I’ve had the fuel cell on now, for about 3 months and 3000 miles of riding.  I’m happy to say, it is performing as I had hoped, giving me 350 solid miles between stops for gas.  This is critical for the Not Superman Rally that I’m running in September.  Riding from Coney Island in New […]
