CABIN PORN ;-)


What a cool sight this is….Free Cabin PORN

No, it’s not porn but holy check out the cabins ranging from huts to glamour.  I actually spent sometime at the Greenleaf Hut in New Hampshire.  I used to work for the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) there is a great hut system up in the White Mountains that you have to hike to.

Anyway, that should be for another post.  Just gave myself an idea.  ;-) But if you have the time not only check out this site but as well as the AMC.  There are 37 pages of these cabins and I highly recommend flipping though all the pages.  Such a cool site!

Watch OUT Costco


Don’t get too excited…I am trying to learn iMovie 11 as well as this new Mac.  We made the switch a week or so ago and I sux at editing no less learning iMovie which to me is way more advanced than Live Movie Maker on a PC.  This is just for fun and the good part is that we actually got to go out for a fun ride today even though it was just to do chores.  ;-)

SPOIL


This video really needs to be on TV with a major network supporting this professionally done documentary.  Again for those who read this BLOG we are not only about our LOVE for bikes and adventure but Cheryl and I share a LOVE for wild life.  It’s 40+ mins long but stunning and informative.  Enjoy! The Photography within the video is just fantastic.

This film is especially informative for those who live far away and do not know how beautiful BC, Canada really is…I hope you all take a look and see for yourself why we live in a Province called Beautiful BC.

The Norton Project


Thanks Jackie for this link!

Last December 2011 Cheryl & I surprised my parents with a quick visit to NY for an after Christmas and my mother’s 75th birthday present.  That was a once in a lifetime even we believe.  Now, watch this very well done video where two son’s surprise their father by restoring his old Norton.  This video is amazing in more ways than one and well worth watching the entire thing.  It’s like an entire movie in 12 mins.  Great editing, great production and most of all such a display of LOVE!

This is a story about how my brother and I stole our father’s 1969 Norton Commando, had it restored and then gave it back to him for Christmas. He had no idea.

GlobeBusters Promo Trailer HD


I know this is an advertisement for GlobeBusters but their Promo trailer is so good and really highlights why we all ADV ride.  It’s well done too…watch the whole thing there is a really cool part to this….

Triumph Tiger 800 Jesse Luggage & more


Gave the Jesse luggage we used on our 2011 Alaska Summer Adventure a bath today.  Why? Because Al Jesse has one of his PR guys working with us to eventually sell these panniers and Al has kindly offered to donate the money raised to our charity ACT-Autism Community Training.  Below is ACT’s thanks back in September 2011.

Thanks to Cheryl and Leslie Continue reading

Rather be Riding


20120421-120543.jpg

Beautiful day here in BC. Nicest day so far this Spring. While I would rather be riding this is what one does when on call for work. Cutting the lawn and gardening! Could be worse I guess!

Hope you all are having a great day!

Suburbs to Sublime


I have been following this couple for years now and they are truly a couple of adventurers and pioneers! They are now riding two rebuilt BMW’s and are getting the recognition they deserve from the ADV world.  They both take awesome photos too!

With no problems whatsoever getting our bikes out of Indonesian customs in Belawan, we took a deep breath and decided to take to the road straight away.

The suburbs of Medan seem to go on for miles and it took us a little while to negotiate the smaller roads leading out of this bustling city. (Motorbikes are not allowed to use the toll roads). Continue reading
