Surreal 


the reality of me leaving BC is getting closer. Home is being inspected, I have 2 buyers wanting to live in my house.  Most would be jumping for joy!  I still have such mixed emotions and will leave it at that! So, I treat myself to a good lunch and remind myself that I will […]

Looking Through My Lens…Vancouver & Greater Vancouver Beauty


February 18th 2015 I have a friend from New York visiting me here in BC.  We actually flew back together after my amazing 2015 Winter X Country ride.  Should really rename my last trip to Spring Like Ride. 😉 Anyway, I am back to BC and for this week playing tourist.  Soaking all the beauty […]

Day 1 of how many?


January 14th 2015 It was weird to ride across the Sumas, WA border this time. Weird because I have no clue when I will ever be back in that neck of the woods ever again. I am moving back to the east so when will I come back to BC via my bike? That’s why […]

Route Shaping Up – I want Go Now


Okay SET BACK…On December 22nd, 2014 I spoke to BMW USA about importing my bike…they made it sound so easy and I have been waiting for my letter of compliance.  Now, this morning I called BMW USA AND because it’s  a MOTORCYCLE AND NOT an AUTOMOBILE, I have to use an importer.  I was asked […]

STAY TUNED….January 2015 Departure?


This could be my route for my X Country Winter Excursion…departure date still being determined. Will make a pit stop in Florida to see my folks, (snow birds) and cousins if all works out. More details to come…will probably take the 101 down through the Oregon Coast… 8366.71 km or 5198.83 miles

Green, White, Brown – Winter in the PNW (Gerbing, what I know)


My initial reason for heading down to Washington State yet again was really to get to Gerbing  All pictures can be clicked for higher resolution and open in a new tab and to add to my heated gear collection so I can ride x country this month sometime soon I hope to drop my bike […]

Remembering 2014…my own form of therapy


MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE. Best to watch videos full screen and in HD When I look back at all the years I have spent in Canada, all the fortunate riding I have been able to do since 2010 when I got my street license these videos will enable me to really see, feel and reflect. My […]

Canada to the USA….oh, the joys of moving back “home”


Update: I learned how to import vehicles into the USA from Canada today. Not terribly difficult but nonetheless work. I had to contact BMW & Fiat USA to apply for letters of compliance. This was after I called the Canadian divisions because that made sense to me.  NOT! 😒 Compliance letters mean my vehicles meet […]

Not ready to part with my “beauty”…


If some of you have been following my year 2014 you will know it’s been one struggle after another.  Break up of my marriage/relationship after 17.5 years, the sudden death of my 10 year-old beagle, job issues, and now I am in the process of actually selling my house and transitioning back to the USA […]
