Birfday Weekend!

My buddy Chris (in Portland) called me on Thursday and told me he wanted to come down to San Diego for my birthday weekend. With the stipulation that we had to ride motorcycles (of course), how could I deny such a request? He loaded his GSXR into his van and drove down, arriving friday around 6. What a haul.  Yesterday we went for a ride through Julian, Santa Ysabel, up to Palomar. Chris is a fan of twisties and Palomar is definitely somewhat famous for riding in San Diego, so I figured… Continue Reading »

Learning the Dirt at the Touratech ADV Moto Rally

When you get a random phone call from the Marketing Manager at Touratech inviting you to attend their 2013 Adventure Motorcycle Rally, you get sort of excited. Then it moves to a sort of horror when you realize you have to tell them you’ve only ridden on a dirt a small amount, and on bikes either unsuited for the terrain, or much smaller than touring and adventure motorcycles.  Fortunately for me, one of the reasons they got in touch was because of my enthusiasm for adventure riding but my lack of experience… Continue Reading »

Went out and hit Apiary on the GSXR600 again today. Chris rode his 848evo and Matt joined us on his GSXR1000. Riding with two OMRRA racers certainly keeps you on your toes… Chris showed me that I rode all the way to the edge of the rear tire. Booya!

The story of my lovely adventure yesterday- amazing twisties, the river, crown point, followed by almost plowing into the back of a truck. Went on a nice long ride with my best homeboy Chris- 78 miles of almost completely twisty roads with some amazing switchbacks and sweepers. Then a truck almost tried to kill me just as a cop showed up. Sometimes not having a destination is the best way to find good roads. First we stopped at Dodge Park when we saw a nice spot to dip our feet in the… Continue Reading »

It was a rather lovely day- Chris, Joel, Wolf and I were hanging out when it dawned on us that there were dirtbikes for riding outside. Next thing you know… I did some riding too… but I wanted to get photos of their hooliganism. Get these two together and well- Chris and Joel had a lot of fun helping me get the photos I want. Joel launched his bike pretty close to me after a wicked slide. Luckily he is a great rider and I am light on my feet.  It was… Continue Reading »
