On the Road…

My friend Tyler and I made it to Alberta and BC. We are heading to Castlegar today. I will post some photos, and a RR as soon as I am able.

Cheers all and ride safely!

This weeks BEST BUY on gear!!

I found some outstanding deals from Girl Gear Apparel on women’s moto jackets. Whether you need your first jacket or to add another to the gear closet, these certainly seem like a great buy with wonderful features.

Here are the stats:

Another color combination

So, if you are in need of a new moto-jacket, don’t waste anytime and order now. These are CLOSEOUT prices and there is no refund, so be sure you look carefully at the provided size charts.

Safe riding!!

A ride approaches…


Kootenay Lake, BC, Canada

As many of you know, I tend to be a distance rider and less of a daily rider. I’m quite content to wile my day away swimming in the backyard pool, or creating a fashion collage. I have even been know to do an original piece of artwork or a fine meal or to plant something that without my help actually grows, but right now I’m planning a ride with an excellent gal pal, Tyler. We are going to Castlegar, BC, Canada via the scenic route.

This will be the first time that I and Tyler have taken a trip, for a very long time. Tyler after her devastating accident and taken to a more stable Can-Am Spyder and the five wheels, Tyler’s three and my two will be heading to Canada at the end of next week.

This is our first ride together ______years ago! 😉

I know that many of you that know me, will probably assume that I’ll be taking my new machine, a Kawasaki Versys, but after much thought and deliberation, I have decided to take the 1250 Bandit, my baby. I bought the Versys in hopes that it would meet my desires, and provide a lighter more versicle machine, but the jury is till out regarding that success. So, the Bandit with all it’s bags and outlets, will allow me to take this tour with the bells and whistles, a plug in for my GPS, and my heated gear. The raw power to both get me into and out of trouble, I can’t wait!!

So next Saturday, Tyler and I will take to the road going first to Carson City, Winnemucca, Boise, Grangeville, Woods Bay, Elkford BC, Castlegar. Then it’s Leavenworth WA, Portland OR, Gold Beach, OR, and onto the back roads of CA. This will be a two week excursion, one that will be both exciting and FUN!! I can’t wait!!!

These are our route details.

Mods Vs Rockers Vintage Motorcycle and Scooter Rally–Chicago June 15th and 16th!


Damn, I wish I lived closer to Chitown as Mods vs Rockers sounds like an awesome event. If you are nearby, you may want to pencil this in on your calendar!

Do we ever ride our motorcycles to their potential?


All this time, I haven’t ridden my new Versys up to its potential. Do we ever ride a bike to its potential?
