Sorry its been awhile. Life has been really busy and sadly my riding time has been cut down as a result. But I am hopeful that in the not so distant future I will be able to start riding more. I just ordered a 2010 Buell Ulysses. I'm super excited about owning a bike again. Its been several years since I've owned a bike and I'm excited to have one I can call my own. I've had the good fortune of having demo bike's provided over the last couple of years but as good as that sounds it very odd riding a bike that you don't own. As soon as it comes in I'll post pictures..

This time of year in the NW is amazing! The rainy days spread out and the sunny ones increase, spirits rise. I haven't been able to get out and do any longer rides but I hope in the next couple of weeks I'll be able to put some much needed miles underneath me. I find that when I don't get to put miles on that my whole mood gets bogged down. I've been really longing to get some time off and do an IBA ride maybe a Buttburner or Saddlesore. I'm not sure why but long distance riding really appeals to me. I read an amazing story of a guy( John Ryan) just this last week that rode his FJR from Prudhoe Bay, AK to Key West,FL in 86 hours. Now I don't think I'll every doing something like that is the kind of ride that inspires me!! Monday is Ride to Work day so remember to ride you scoot this Monday the 15th of June. Ride Safe

well here we are late April and its been a while since I've written anything. 2 reasons for that I think, first is that I've been pretty busy at work with a new position. Second is that there is only so much you can say about winter riding in Oregon, It's wet, it's gray, it's cold and ya it's wet ,enough about that. Now that the spring is here I hope to have more fun ride reports to come. I also think I'm going to start talking some about motorcycle safety thru this avenue. Its a topic that I'm very passionate about and it seems that this time of year rider's are dying needlessly due to stupid decisions. So ride smart and ride safe.
