I really need to post more, if for no other reason than to get those pictures of snow off the front page [grin] Here are some pictures I’ve taken over the past few months…
This certainly isn’t anything close to the weather that’s been seen this winter by my friends and family in the Maryland & Washington D.C., but it’s more than we’re used to here in the Atlanta area.
I work in a 5-story office building which shares the parking lot with another just like it. Ten floors of offices, I’m not sure how many employees work here. On a “normal” spring or summer day there are three bikes in the lot – my FZ-6, a Ninja and a Shadow. Today is Ride to […]
Did you? I’ve ridden every workday so far this month; my goal is simple — no four-wheel vehicle commuting this summer, barring any hurricanes later in the season.
I went for a nice ride this past weekend, about 110 miles in all up into the North Georgia mountains. You know it’s going to be a good ride when you see a sign like this and plenty of roads like this which lead to a destination like this, with plenty of good conversation and […]
A little excitement today: I was riding the motorcycle southward along Maxwell St, doing about the speed limig safely on my side of the double-yellow, when I was passed by a black Ford F-150 doing what appeared to be double the speed limit. I barely had time to realize he was there and then he […]

I participate in two online motorcycling communities, ADVrider.com and Sport-Touring.Net. Many riders on ADV have begun “Tag-O-Rama” or “Photo Tag” games, in which a rider posts a photo of their motorbike in some particular location, along with a few clues, and others try to figure out where it is. The first person to find the […]
Last year I got back into motorcycling after a 14-year hiatus, on a 1994 BMW R11RS. That was a great machine, and I enjoyed riding it quite a bit. Unfortunately, I don’t really know how the bike was ridden or serviced over those years (and 63,000 miles); the gearbox and clutch system turned out to […]
I rode my motorcycle right through a red light yesterday. Actually, I rode through several red lights, as did about forty other motorcyclists and drivers of a dozen cars. We were all taking part in the second annual Ride for Will. The ride was very well escorted by LEOs (Law Enforcement Officers), both from the […]
