Dan and I took a tour with MotoAdventours (the same people that showed us the beauty of South Africa!), spending a week in the beauty of northwestern Spain. Come along and see why they call it “Green Spain”
Provence by motorcycle!
Dan and take a week off to visit the lavender fields of Provence – and lots of French Alps on the way there and back. I can honestly say that this ride was more about the journey than the destination.
The long-awaited trip of a lifetime! Check out our trip to this southern African country (Bonus countries: Lesotho and Eswatini!). Four days in Cape Town and then two weeks of motorcycle riding across the country.
A weekend get-away! With Dan! And a motorcycle! In the mountains!
You know that you want to know more, so go ahead:
Andalusia has been completed!
Dan and I took a short trip to southern Spain last month to meet up with friends and get in some sunshine. Follow this link for nine days of fun and food in the sun!
BMW Off Road Training
We finally did it! We signed up for and completed a two day “off road enduro” training. Not everything went as planned, but I still deem it a success!
Now, for your reading pleasure, I present to you Just Along For The Ride, available for e-readers everywhere! This is the exciting tale of my two motorcycle trips to Mexico.
Here is a link to the Amazon page for Just Along For The Ride.
So much change!
Dan and I got back from our trip to Switzerland and made the decision that yes, we could indeed get along living with the Swiss. But we came home with news that importing our BMWs into the country would be “prohibitive”. Therefore the last remaining motorcycles in the garage have got to go. Here’s to the start of an amazing adventure!
Good Customer Service
Just how important is that? You can make the best produce in the world, but if you won’t stand behind it, it is worth nothing. I recently had an atrocious customer service experience with Rick Mayer Cycle, purveyor of custom motorcycle seats. While his workmanship might be good, his lack of business acumen and customer service will prevent me from ever recommending him to anyone. You can read about my experience here.
The Passing of a KLR
I’m about to part out one of my bikes, the green KLR that’s taken me so many miles and has been so much fun. I decided to commemorate the “life” of this bike by posting a bit about it here.
I’m not done with KLRs, not by a long shot. I have the 2001 “Swiss” KLR still to ride, although I am in the process of changing “skins” so that it’ll look like the green one by the time I’m done. It’ll just have 50,000 miles less on the odometer 🙂
