I can't stop watching this. As a species, we humans need to channel more of our energy into things like this, and less into hate and rancor.

*Monterey 2015 Trip - Day? *

Home. Finally. I've decided that 2 weeks is too long on the road without taking a couple rest days off the bike. I'm totally burned out from riding, and will be as happy as hell to get on my bicycle tomorrow instead.

Just under 7000km for the trip. That's 4300 miles for those that still use those antiquated units.

I know how that feels after a long time away. I'm sure you'll sleep great.

*Monterey 2015 Trip - Day? *

I've been negligent in posting updates lately. Trying to type a meaty post on mobile makes one long for a real keyboard. Anyway, I've lost track of time. I think it's Thursday.

At the moment I'm in Bend, Oregon, sitting on a patio drinking an IPA and listening to live music. Today was my shortest day this week, with less than 400km. The previous three days I rode over 2000km in total. Not quite iron butt material, but long days nonetheless.

After the weekend the group exploded and it became a free for all home. Apparently this happens with this group, although it was news to me. Anyway, I rode with Mark and Cathie to Lake Tahoe on Monday, and have been solo since.

Tuesday saw me in Redding, CA, after doing the part of hwy 36 that I didn't do on the way down. I managed to find a couple roads that I've never ridden, which is always fun.

Wednesday found me in Eugene, after another ridiculously long day. Over 700km, all but 160 on twisty roads.

Today I rode 242 in Oregon, which is brilliant but tainted with a couple really sharp corners with nasty gravel surprises. I just about lost the front end on one of these corners. I toned it down a bit after that.

Monterey 2015 Trip - Day 6

Day 6 saw me in San Francisco to replace my worn out rear tire. The day got off to a great start with 26 miles of beautiful twisties from Fort Bragg to Willits, and another set into and out of Boonville in the Anderson Valley. After that it was a boring freeway drone to SF.

Once my tire was done it was off to the famous Skyline Boulevard to scrub in the new tire. The picture is from the western start of the road.

That was a great way to wind my way towards Cupertino where my friends Kris and Julianne live. I used to work with Kris until he took a job with a Bay area tech giant a year ago. Julianne prepared a terrific plate of fresh veggies, fruit, nuts, breads and cheeses to eat, which was a welcome change from restaurant food. She also bought a bunch of California craft beer and made tasting flights!

After a bit of a buzz was had, we ubered to a local comedy club and caught a standup show. That was a fun time.

You've all heard about cat poop coffee, right? The one that civet cats in Indonesia eat, then poop out, which are then harvested and roasted?

Well, this is similar, but comes from weasel poop in Vietnam. My wife brought it back yesterday from her trip there.

It's rather tasty.

RU-486 has now been approved for use in Canada.

This should torque up the anti-abortion crowd right quick.
Canada will join 60 countries around the world that allow women to have access to the drug RU-486, which is better known as, the ‘abortion pill.’

Rona Ambrose is already distancing herself, claiming that Health Canada works at arms length... After delaying approval for two and a half years, of course.

Monterey 2015 Trip - Day 6

Hello San Francisco!

Left the group today because I wanted to get to San Francisco early and find a place to get a new rear tire for the bike. Thanks to the fine folks at +SF Moto​ I should be rolling fresh rubber shortly.

Headed to spend the night with a friend in Cupertino a little later on. Might hit Skyline Blvd on the way to scrub in the tire a bit.

Right now I'm enjoying a Racer 5 IPA while waiting for lunch.

Hey- hey now! I'm a native SF'ian (not many of us anymore these days)! And no it's not because we've been murdered! Lol~

Enjoy your stay +Dean Reimer! I'm in the SJ/Silicon Valley Peninsula. Hope you'll have time to ride up Old La Honda Rd to Skyline, it's our Litmus cycling test! Cheers~!

Introduction
I live in Coquitlam, BC, just a little outside of Vancouver.  

I am a civil libertarian and many of my posts will reflect that view. I am a strong proponent of civil liberties (free speech, freedom to assemble, etc.) but I am not a capital-L Libertarian. I believe that there is a role for government in regulating markets.

I am also interested in the science and politics of global resources and resource depletion. I am a proponent of alternative energy sources including solar, wind, geothermal, and tidal. 

I enjoy reading (fiction and non-) and my interests tend towards science, especially astronomy, cosmology and physics. I find sociology and the study of modern culture fascinating as well. 

I play guitar (I have a Seagull Acoustic, a Gibson Les Paul and a Mesa Boogie amp), play recreational volleyball and squash, and I ride a Kawasaki Versys motorcycle and a Giant Defy bicycle.

I have to give the guys at Burnaby Kawasaki a shout out for excellent service today. Earlier in the week I low-sided my brand new Versys and needed a new footpeg bracket, footpeg, and bent my rear brake cylinder rod. I brought the bike in this morning and they fixed me up right away with parts they borrowed from a bike in stock. Further, Manny threw in a pair of new swingarm spools because mine was rashed up, even though I didn't ask. Awesome!

I took the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (both non-restricted and restricted) with Silvercore last summer, after a recommendation from a colleague. The course was well presented and the instructor, Sonet Sato, was knowledgeable, well-prepared and fun to learn from. The only negative was that it was a little busy around the practice firearms. (This is not a problem unique to Silvercore, though. It is a testament to how busy all these courses are these days!) Even so, we had ample time to practice with the different types of action. The training made it easy to ace the tests, and I felt very comfortable handling firearms afterward. I would not hesitate to recommend Silvercore.

I was in Vancouver on Saturday and I stopped in to All-Court Stringing at their 1217 Nanaimo St location. I was hoping to get my squash racquet restrung, but because I live in Coquitlam I didn't want to have to come all the way back to pick it up later. Brandon and his team went out of their way to accommodate me, and put my job next in the queue. A run out for a cup of coffee, a short wait and my racquet was ready to go. The service was excellent and friendly. I would not hesitate in recommending All-Court. They also carry a good selection of racquets and accessories.

I've been to lunch at Legends Pub several times with work colleagues. The atmosphere and decor are garden-variety pub, and the service meets the expectations one has for a casual lunch. I've eaten several items on the menu and have always been pleased with the food. The menu is not adventurous, but it does go beyond simple burgers and sandwiches. They occasionally offer a seared ahi tuna salad which is excellent, and their thin crust pizzas are very good and a good value as well.

I can't properly review the Billy Miner Pub because they wouldn't allow us in. But I'm forced to fill in all the ratings, so I'm going to assume the food is good. Here is the story: A group of eleven of us had decided to go for food and beers at the Billy Miner. The pub was suggested by one of the group who lives in Maple Ridge. He offered us his extra beds and couches so that we could taxi to and from, and have no worries about drinking and driving. When we arrived at about 7:30pm (on a Friday) the place was packed. We were turned away, as the manager explained that they were already at capacity. Fair enough. We were disappointed, but that's what happens when you don't make reservations. Who knew the place was so popular? We asked him if the place would be quieter a little later on. He said that by 9:30 there were usually some seats to be had. Cool, we thought. We'll head up the street to the Haney Pub and get some food and a couple beers and we'll come back later. Which is what we did. One of the guys in the group called the pub at 9:30 and was told that there was still no room for our group. He tried again at 10:30 but nobody answered the phone. Since we were tired of the crappy beer selection at the Haney Pub and wanted to get some craft beer on, we decided just to walk down. Which is where we reach the crux of the story. Upon arrival at the pub we were told that we weren't welcome, since we had been drinking somewhere else. This despite the ample tables available, and the fact that none of us were inebriated. I can appreciate that businesses have the right to choose whom they will serve. But the Billy Miner has just alienated eleven beer lovers who will never return.

Fantastic squash facility, with five singles courts and one doubles court. Courts are in great condition with hardwood floors and a glass back wall, open at the top. Although you can lose the occasional ball out the open back it really helps to keep the noise down and air circulation up, making it a pleasant playing environment. The locker room is well equipped with lots of lockers. Showers are split into stalls with curtains, so you don't feel like you're in a prison shower! The weight/cardio equipment area is wide open and warehouse-like. I haven't used the gym facilities so I can't comment on them. There is a licensed restaurant attached to the gym, so if you feel like a beer after your squash league night you will be well taken care of.
