I have done quite a few big RR’s and smaller one’s but what makes this one different is I am no longer with my thought to be partner for life Cheryl. Let me back up…Cheryl and I were partners as common law for 15 years before she proposed to me in March 2012. In August of 2013 we had a destination wedding that turned out to be the best day of my life. We shared our relationship with 62 of our closest family and friends over a 2 day party.

2014 CROSS COUNTRY TRIP-see bottom of post


After going back and forth as to where I should take my SOLO trip this year I think I have come up with a plan.  Head East, go see my family and some friends and then head West.  I think it’s doable…May 17 – June 16?  Need to replace my SPOT CONNECT as my other one seems to like to eat batteries more than usual and the battery lid does not like to stay closed.  So, new Connect on order and over the next few months I shall get the camping gear together, check out it twice, before I leave get the bike all tuned up with new K60 tires and off I will head into the USA and Canada.  We did this trip, different route in 2010.

As usual I will try to do a live report from the road on the ADV forum or maybe just the F800 forum not sure yet and the BLOG, with updates on our Face Book page too.  Should be fun to get out there on my own.  I have taken shorter trips SOLO but not 12,000 KM’s worth.   Continue reading “2014 CROSS COUNTRY TRIP-see bottom of post”

Long Beach, NY to Long Beach, CA on a $200 Motorcycle

The plan was simple; I was going to ride from Long Beach New York to Long Beach Los Angeles, cheaply and alone. I wanted to prove that you didn’t need the latest bike or accessories in able to have an adventure of a lifetime and of course, do it with the freedom of 2 wheels. I was also going to try and raise some money for ‘Riders for Health’, if I could achieve all that while discovering parts of America that would be more than wonderful.

Just to make it a bit more interesting, mainly for myself, I threw in a few rules; just to make me suffer in one way or another. These were, buy a bike for $200 or less and ride it across the US using only normal roads, no Interstate or Highways. Sleep in a tent every night, use only a small map, no sat navigation, can’t shave or shower until the journey is complete and only buy fuel and food. Whatever the bike needed would have to come out of the $200 budget… if I hadn’t spent it all in one go that is…
