Building Friendships on a Motorcycle

Such a simple story but touching one too….by Luke Swab via


Building Friendships on a Motorcycle

For the last nine days I have been riding with Joe Trey from where I met him in Fairplay, CO, to the end of the Trans American Trail in Port Orford, OR. Joe is my new friend, as I had never met him before this trip. One of the beautiful things about traveling with someone, whether it’s on a bike or not, is the expedited growth in a relationship.

Unbelievable “nail houses” around the world

In China, a “nail house” is a home whose resident refuses to leave in order to make way for new construction. Builders have to elaborately construct around it, often leaving behind an eyesore so awesome that it’s almost a sculpture. Here are some of the most famous examples of nail houses.

Our Day

Surrounded by RCMP Mounties we ended up having a great wedding at the Westcoast Wilderness Lodge in Egmont BC.

More pics and posts to come. We are staying another night to relax. Guests are long gone and it’s just us. What a day to remember!

2014 Yamaha YZ250F action shot

To say that the 2013 Yamaha YZ250F was badly in need of an update would be an understatement. This motorcycle was not obsolete, but its competitors were leaving it in the dust with regard to innovations. The last bike in its class to retain a carburetor, the 2013 YZ-F had not been updated in several years save for a few minor tweaks. Fortunately, Yamaha had big plans for its little four-stroke, and in 2014 the blue brand is releasing a completely redesigned, totally new machine. ’Bout time.

Ten Best Bikes 2013 Our annual list continues to honor those who build the best.


Ten Best Bikes 2013

Deep in our hearts, most of us know that we’d ride just about anything as long as we got to ride. It’s just part of being an enthusiast. But we also know that in the great competition of motorcycling, we all strive for the best, whether it’s how we ride or what we ride. The same goes for the passionate people who build motorcycles for us. This year has been fantastic, offering everything from technology-pushing superbikes and touring machines to the coolest cruisers and low-cost fun bikes. And all that rolls in between.

Wedding Check List

It won’t be long until Cheryl and I take the next step after living Common Law for 16 years into the world of Legal MARRIAGE.  After all the fuss being made over in Russia about the anti gay movement I thought it would be a perfect post in honor of our right to be with whomever we want in Canada. 

Today was Vancouver annual Pride Parade and Cheryl and her colleagues represented the RCMP

and marched along with all those colorful human beings expressing their right to Love anyone they want.  Isn’t that what it’s all about????

Pride Parade Continue reading “Wedding Check List”
