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? […]

I’ve suffered a brief three week hiatus from riding for one reason or another.  I have some maintenance to perform on the bike and I’m off for two weekends and the week between on a non-riding trip away from my motorcycle.  I really needed to get out on the bike. I didn’t want to just […]

Sept 2nd I’ve decided to leave at my default time.  3pm.  Advantage:  One less day of PTO and I get down the road 8 or so hours before putting up for the night.  My goal for tonight is somewhere around Dallas.  Final advantage is that I get through/around Dallas in the wee hours of the […]

It’s almost time.  The Not Superman Rally starts on September 10 in New York City which means I have to be there by then. I’m leaving New Mexico mid afternoon on Friday 8/2/2016.  I had originally planned on heading through Southern Louisiana through to about Tallahassee, FL before turning north for Atlanta and some visiting […]

A nice weekend forecast popped into my weather channel, so I decided to take a three day weekend trip to Montana.  I have a 98 year old Aunt I love to visit with and friends from my childhood there.  A few phone calls to arrange things, last minute prep on the 2005 Suzuki VStrom 650, […]

I am preparing for a ride across the US, from Coney Island in New York City to the Golden Gate Bridge.  It is this year’s Not Superman Rally.  The ride is 2946 miles and I will be attempting to do this in 50 hours or less. As any athlete knows, you cannot do extreme events […]
