2/11/18 Riding with Sigel, Degeyters, Lee and the OMRA Boys (Reid, Cady and Worley)

Steve Degeyter emailed me to come join a ride he had planned in an obscure spot in Southern Oregon. Leading the ride would be Jim Sigel, Steve & Zeke Degeyter, plus the OMRA Boys of Ryen Reid, Dave Cady and Chuck Worley. Sounded like a fun time! I got up early and headed over. The Weather Guess...

2/4/18 Superbowl Ride at Bohall's With Donna

What better day to ride than Superbowl Sunday? No traffic, and like-minded people out exploring the outdoors! My Wife, Donna, hasn't ridden in almost two years, so I had tuned up her KTM 200 to be quite perfect (after all, I am her factory mechanic!) and nothing was left for chance. We loaded up an...

2/3/18 Trailriding With Neal & Kai

On the day before Superbowl, Neal & Kai wanted to go for a short ride. I finished reworking the carb on the Wife's KTM 200 and needed to take it out for a shakedown ride. Little did I know it would be more than that! Our first piece was riding in an old area and checking out a dilapidated mine ...

1/28/18 Riding With Ron Hughes, Neil & Kai and BenS

Wow, a break in the weather after much too long! A few of us unloaded and headed out. My pal, Ron Hughes, from up north was down for a couple days, so had to show him some good riding! Ben Saiz also went with us on his new KTM and was a pleasure to ride with. https://photos.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/...

12/31/17 New Year's Eve Birthday Ride With The Mcbrides

I met up at Mike & Heather Mcbride's place at 6AM and, with a slight change of taking my truck instead of theirs, we hooked up their trailer (with bikes) and set sail south to Redding's Chappie/Shasta OHV Area. Unfortunately my Wife, Donna, was unable to go due to the flu. Three hours later we ...

12/23/17 Riding With The Kids

Neal and his son, Kai, picked me up and we headed north to our familiar spot. In tow was Jim & Hailey Dickerson and Joseph & Asher Tompkins. The weather was great once we got out of the fog. We spent a bit of time at a track, then went trail riding. All the kids did much better than expecte...

Re: 9/27/17 Northern California 3-Day Tour

Day Three, 185 Miles: 798 Total Miles We were up early leaving Weaverville after missing dinner the evening prior due to too many people at the golf-course restaurant. We settled into a local pub for pizza instead. We headed north by Trinity Lake en route to dodging a plethora of Bambis, after topp...

Re: 9/27/17 Northern California 3-Day Tour

Day Two, 284 Miles After a stay in Tiny's questionable namesake (Knight's Inn) in Susanville, we headed off south, then turned up Janesville Grade (across from Honey Lake) and went up, up, up! We needed to do a quick stop to stretch out Tiny's back at one point. This road eventually wound us to Ant...

9/23/17 Dualsporting Medco Ponds With Kerry

Day three of Kerry's visit and it was too nice out NOT to ride, so off we went, this time straight from the house. We headed directly up to Flounce Rock to check in on how much damage there was after the recent fire. Fortunately only the west, south and east sides of the summit were marred - everyt...
