Time for Another Adventure!

It has been awhile since we got back from Alaska/Canada and it is time for another Epic adventure.  This time we will be trekking on ancient ’80s machines. And this Honda Beauty: There is something about it not really being adventure if you are in complete control of the situation and that is probably whyContinue reading “Time for Another Adventure!”

Alaskan Epic Trekker in 6 Days!!!

It is getting close!  My brother is already starting to freak out.  This will be the most miles we have ever put on our bikes in one ride and the unknowns are many.  We are prepared, but not really.  We’ve done some reading and purchased what we think we need. This whole thing started lastContinue reading “Alaskan Epic Trekker in 6 Days!!!”

Said Goodbye to the CTX700 and Grom, but Hello to a 2013 Honda NC700X

Picked this up for a very fair price last week and have started modifying it for Alaska. It only has 3000 miles on it which for a 2013 seems very low.  I drove it home about 60 miles and have since put another 90 miles on it.  It runs great and the power is justContinue reading “Said Goodbye to the CTX700 and Grom, but Hello to a 2013 Honda NC700X”

My First Motorcycle Ride Ever!

Why do I love motorcycles (and ATVs) so much?  Recently I’ve thought a bit about this.  In the early eighties I became aware of and very lustful for Honda’s ATC three wheeler.  In particular at my young age I thought I could probably handle the ATC 90 or 125.  In small town Utah these ATC’sContinue reading “My First Motorcycle Ride Ever!”

Thinking About Past Moto Rides

Commuting on a motorcycle is much different than touring.  I was thinking about people that ride their motorcycles less than a thousand miles a year, those that just tour occasionally and those that use a motorcycle as their main mode of transportation.  I’m not knocking on anyone that loves riding their cycle.  If you rideContinue reading “Thinking About Past Moto Rides”
