Where are you on your motorcycle journey? It's what you've been through to get to the rider you are today. If this was a video game,what level would you be at? If you've read my Joining the Boxer club post recently, you'll have an idea of where I was on that journey. That was BEFORE my recent trip to California. Going to Raw Hyde was like warp zones from mario brothers, allowing me to quickly get through levels in a very compacted amount of time. The short version is, I bought a used bike from raw hyde, then went to them for a 2 day Intro to Adventure course, followed by a 2 day adventure in the desert (BCA).

How long have you been riding? It’s a question you hear often amongst riders and you’ll usually hear an answer based on time. I myself have been riding for about 2.5 years. How that equates to experience though, not very well. In reality, a better way to gauge experience would be mileage. It’s not the only way, there are a lot of other factors, but to me mileage is a better measurement. I've ridden around 25k miles in those 2.5 years. A lot has happened since then, and now, I join the Boxer Club.Read More
First 11 months on this bike. Not bad for my 2nd year of riding. I think I sold my G650GS with around 8500 miles. So I'm creeping on 20k miles. I took a ride out with my wife, first ride of the season with her, and hit the 10K with her on it. It felt so good to have her on the back. Some more photos after the jump.Read More
I took a little spill this week. My first. I've been thinking about what my first would be like for a while now. I knew it would happen eventually. Lucky for me it went well. And yes, it was my fault.Read More
This is from last year with my 650. took me 3 months to hit 2222 miles. now on my 700, i hit over 2500 miles in under my first 2 months. progress :) also of note, i got my 650 7/2/13… meaning its been over 1 year of wheels still spinning… almost daily.
I’m a geek. So what?!
I finally got out there. I’ve been wanting to do this for months and I’ve been prepping for it. A very small first trip. I had a good excuse too. I had to work upstate for the day on Tuesday so I went up late Monday night and camped nearby. Warning: this write up should be interesting to no one but myself. Still.. It is exciting to me. My first time! Gotta start somewhere. Just to be clear though – I’ve been camping many many times – just never by myself and never on a Moto.Read More
New items arrived and installed this week! Crash Bars, Vario Side Cases, Top Cover! Detailed posts coming soon.
I’ve been thinking about this for months, ever since I test drove that F800GS I was so impressed from the smoothness of that engine. I continued loving my G650, but I knew I was ready for more. Of course being me I reseached the hell out of it. I decided the F700 was a great fit for me right now…..Read More
