A little damp

A little damp

The first half of my trip down to Georgia was fantastic. It was cool enough that I wasn’t hot in my Rev’It Cayenne Pro jacket, but not so cold my hands were freezing. It was overcast enough that I didn’t have to squint behind my Native sunglasses, but not so overcast that I had to […]

Decisions, decisions ….

Decisions, decisions ….

I was supposed to go visit my family up in Syracuse, NY this weekend. I was going to ride Raider up there and then putter around with my stepfather. I quickly encountered two monkey wrenches. 1) The bike my dad owned does not have a state inspection. Neither does Raider, but he won’t ride without […]

Stupid rain.

Stupid rain.

I was hoping to ride Cylon up to Rockville tomorrow, but there’s a 60% chance of rain. If it’s just showers, I may go up anyway and wear my Goretex jacket. It won’t do much for my legs, but everything else should be fine. It makes me regret not buying some weatherproof textile motorcycling gear […]

Water water everywhere

I decided to cut my motorcycle trip a day short in order to beat out a rain storm and twenty degree temperature drop in Syracuse. I left New York at 9AM under the threat of dark clouds and a steady wind. Despite the annoying wind, I made it all the way through New York state […]
