Running on fumes. We've all said it before. Last time I ran out of gas I was luckily in my driveway, wondering why my bike wouldn't start. I usually fill up after 160 miles, maybe 180. That day with a coughing, weezing bike in my driveway, I had 211 miles on the tank. The other... Continue Reading →
I had a day off work so I decided to take a spin up to GMR. I'd heard the road up to Crystal Lake was damaged and closed so I wanted to see what was going on. GMR is so close, it's a quick getaway with minimal freeway time and I'm not so far out in... Continue Reading →
When you're playing with your phone and sitting through a green light, you don't get to get all aggressive with me after I honk at you. Pay attention.
With the holiday season upon us, Jon and I were trying to connect to hang out and catch up. He got invited to the SoCal Norton Owners Club Annual Run For The Roses ride, so he invited me to join him.

We are well and good into the dog days of summer. It's way too hot to do much of anything, even riding in this heat isn't fun. But I haven't really been on my bike for fun in quite a while so I decided to brave the temps and just get in a quick ride... Continue Reading →
As you probably noticed from the lack of posts, June had been a really busy month for me. Between school promotions and graduations, general family stuff, and then an eight day roadtrip with the family to Colorado, there was little time left for riding. I've been commuting but it's just not the same so before going back... Continue Reading →
I took a couple vacation days over Memorial Day weekend and ended it by hitting GMR, aka Glendora Mountain Road. I've been up there many times, and lately been going more due to its proximity to home. It's a darn good road that's not usually busy off-peak. Jon had never been, surprisingly, so that sealed the...
