Here’s a short video I made celebrating my 50th belated birthday gift. Cross learning to fly off my bucket list. Interesting how many who ride seek other adventures as well.
Day 5 – January 18th 2015
0345 – I hear yelling, screaming outside my room. Oh wait….back up. Continue reading “Day 5 – Cops, BLOOD, DOA Battery and then The GENERAL”

Got myself a little entertainment for this trip…my Mini Bose
Yesterday, January 10th, 2015 my new buddy and friend Mike came over to assist with checking over my bike before my trip. Mike is like family now, met through the virtual world, rode together on a Dual Sport BC ride, have the same dealer and he even bought my ex’s 2013 F800GS White Fluffy bike. 😉 Hopefully he will post some pics of what he has done to that bike.
Hope to leave January 15.
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 about this by a blog reader and I though I knew the way…he was correct…it’s not easy and I was misinformed. It’s a bike and I AM FRUSTRATED. They should have told me this back in December. I have a call out to an importer to see how much this is going to cost me. I have a feeling $1000. UGH! I am going to go on my trip anyway…worry about this crap later. 😉
What are the lyrics of this song I love in English?
THANKS GEORGE from the UK
As I work on my post from my last road trip with my car, not my bike here TWO quick slide shows of my year in review. I mean quick! 😃 Enjoy, and I will get my act together to post about my December 30th 2014 – Jan 1 2015, 2010 KM or 1250 mile trip.
December 13th 2014 – (all pics are clickable for hi rez and there are videos in the post.)
Rode out to see the Eagles again today at the Sandpiper Golf Course about an hour ride east of my house. Been going out here every year for almost 18 years. Will be going out a lot more over the next month or so because the river is still way too high for these magical creatures to feast on the spawning salmon. There were a lot more eagles flying around today than a few weeks ago. This area makes me forget about 2014 as being a year of loses. Makes me feel really good to be honest especially when I ride. I have some hurdles still in my way before I move back to the USA but I have such a good family and friends I think I will jump over them and land on my feet. But, MAN…would I love to just stay out here with the eagles for weeks.
Temperature was perfect for riding. Between 4C (39.2F) – 7C(44.6F). The next four pictures were taken by a guy name Doug. I just was watching him take shots of an eagle that was real close to us and low on a tree branch. He showed his pics using a great lens and better camera than mine and I asked if he would email the shots he loved. Gave him my blog travel card and he did indeed keep his promise. Mailed me these pictures and I told him in return I would post them and link his site. Doug said he is not a pro but I think he is an awesome photographer. Thanks DOUG if you read this for the pictures and nice to have met you.

British Columbia is the kingdom of abundance. Where glaciated mountains stand over an unruly Pacific. Rainforests wrap cities. Nature shapes culture. The wild breathing life back into the wild within. http://wildwithin.ca

OMG this guy is sick….I wish I could ride like him….
Chris Birch, X-treme Enduro champion and RedBull Romaniacs winner shows his versatile riding skills by blasting around on a KTM1190 Adventure R in the mud before launching it off a rock shelf.
I will just say this video allowed me to escape into a bit of a fantasy land for about 3 mins. Yeah there is a RED BULL helicopter in it but don’t let that take away from this really beautifully done aerial shot. Make sure you watch in HD…just click the HD button.

just watch and listen….everyone who stops by this blog I know can relate to this video….I bet 100% of us
Great video, great advertisement for Aether Gear…nice gear BTW…
We’ve been a big fan of Aether’s jackets ever since they came on our radar. Why? Because they push function and aesthetics equally and do it better than almost anyone else in the gear business. We also love a good riding video as much as anyone else, and Aether really did this one right. Continue reading “Video To Watch: Aether Chasing Winter”
