I've given up on growing up and am now just enjoying the ride.

Cool project.  Of interest to riders, writers, travelers, and people who like to get in on the ground floor.  So go support this already!

So who's up for another gathering of Seattle area HU folks?
Just did two weeks and change riding through BC and Alberta, first to the Horizons Unlimited meet in Nakusp, then on to Banff and Jasper.  What scenery!

Gorgeous Sunday.  Took a ride: Seattle to South Bend, using Destination Highways suggestions.  Good times.

Raining? Who cares? It's demo time!!
That California is one sweet beast. I need to lose 3" off my gut to ride the Thruxton comfortably. :-)

Great to see Don, Tad and Gaila.

Hi all,

So, I just went a little nuts at the International Motorcycle Show here in Seattle.  Bought myself a July 4th off-road riding weekend in Oregon (plus a 1-day off-road riding course; useful to a dirt-noob like me). Check it out at http://www.highdesertadventures.net/schedule.html (I'm going on the "Wild West Desert" tour).  

Since I have 0 off-road riding gear, I asked the guys what I might need. The basics, of course, so here's the list of soon-to-arrive goodies:

Fox Racing Comp 5 Offroad Boots (Black)
Fly Racing Kinetic Block Out Helmet (White & Red)
Dainese Knee V Guard
Airfoil 9300 Series Goggle (Smoke Silver Lens)

I’m going to just use my Aerostich Falstaff jacket and Darien Pants and hope those are sufficient.  Going back and forth on whether I’ll need additional armor.  Don’t want to break any bones, but I don’t know that I need to go overboard with the gear, either.    Anyone care to chime in??  In any case, I figure this off-road experience will be good exposure to a kind of motorcycling that’s quite a bit different from my norm.

Shortly after this trip in mid-August, I’ll head to B.C., Canada for http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/events/canwest-2014.  

Basically, it's a year of motorcycling events!!!

Hope you’re having a great 2014 so far.  Where are you riding this year?

Cheers,
Rick

Attended an event at Ride West a few nights ago.  Some of you may know / know of Radioman.  If you have a chance to hear him talk about his rtw trip and see his pictures/videos, do so.   Truly inspirational!
