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 I should take him there. We totalled probably 160 miles. I don’t have any gauges so I wouldn’t know…
A while back (seriously, a while ago) I met Mitch Sander up in Yakima, WA (he now lives in Seattle) through our mutual friend Dave Buchanan (redandblackattack.tumblr.com) and laid eyes on his beautiful Triumph. It’s a garage built 1966 Bonneville hard tail with a modern front end.
We all sat down and ate burritos and talked about bikes, I picked his brain about his build because dammit… I would so love to ride that thing. It’s classy, functional, sounds awesome, and has history. Read on for my interview with Mitch.
A private study funded by Harley Davidson concluded that women who ride are happier and more fulfilled… reeeeeally? Of course we are!

It seems so obvious to me, but let’s see what the study had to say.
