I was going through all twelve years of TRT posts the other day as we get ready to do a significant update. Even I was surprised by how many places we’ve been: ) I just couldn’t stop looking at all the pictures as they brought back many many great memories. So I thought I’d share. […]
This author has yet to write their bio.
Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud FHW contributed a whooping 154 entries.
We’ve had four snowstorms before Thanksgiving so it’s no longer surprising to get up in the morning to 13F degrees. Karen grew up in New York and I lived there for seven years, yet I think its the 30+ years in Los Angeles that our bodies remember.
Neither Karen nor I thought we’d actually do two months riding a bike through Europe this summer. KR was frankly dreading it, but said “yes” early in the idea stage and didn’t want to disappoint Her Man as we got closer. I didn’t think KR would be up for it for a lot of […]
I have no expectation that most of you will get beyond this sentence as this post is for my fellow car and motorcycle freaks. In this context, there can never be enough verbiage or pictures. The Goodwood Revival 2022 was an OMG event. What’s more, it was an unexpected OMG event as I put it […]
We reach England just as the Queen leaves
We left Spa Belgium and meandered northwest, then northeast, then west and then southwest along the Netherlands/Belgium/French coasts of the North Sea. It’s been a lazy, hazy time in which our schedule was loose and our destinations blurry. We rolled through the country sides of Belgium, a bit of Germany, the Netherlands and eventually France. […]
We go to the SPA Formula 1 race in Belgium. Three thousand odd miles and four weeks later and we are here; the secret reason I wanted to come to Europe. The SPA-Franchorchamps Formula 1 race in Belgium.
We complete the Southern Loop of our European Motorcycle Summer
Here’s the headline for this report: We’re eight days in and we’ve driven east through France, then into the Swiss Alps and we’re now about to enter northern Italy. No big disasters (we fell over once on Day 2:) and given everything leading up to this; all’s well as we figure out what/how/where to do […]
We spend our last five days deep inside Kruger National Game Reserve
Finally we get on two wheels and ride through three African countries
This is still how I feel when riding a bike. But, when is enough?
This question that I keep thinking about is, Am I just too old to ride a motorcycle any more? Should I find something else to do? The question is nothing new as you’ll see below, but here it is again. After all, motorcycling isn’t like golf, if you hit it out of bounds you don’t just take a Mulligan. Chances are, there’s a more serious price to pay. Yet, for those of us who ride, it’s a passion that’s hard to shake off for too many reasons to explain here. I’ve been riding since I was 15 and its still a central part of my life. Go figure.
We finally make it to Africa. Part 1 covers our first safari
We get back on the horse of travel and wonder why
We’ve shifted into the new norm of post-COVID living
