Great to read that Nick is doing better, and thanks for the donation link. Also glad to see that my old buddy Samson is still at Munroe.

Be well,

A portuguese Peach on a spanish road

Dear miss The Darth Peach, there must be something about you to make me look down a straight, beautiful, over a mile long stretch of road and instead of thinking "pin the throtle" I thought " Hey, I could try to make a Peach here". So, here it is.




And while I ran back and forth (of course it didn´t came right at the first try ) under the hot spanish sun, these two guys were very curious.

don't know him but speedy recovery Nick.
Awesome!

It sounds as if he's slowly coming around.
Long rehab road ahead, but he is tough and has a ton of people pulling for him,
which is great.

I saw the crash.
Really wasn't pretty.

I, along with everyone else that knows him, suspect he'll come out swinging. :)

Truckee and Pyramid Lake, NV

Last weekend I did a bonsai trip to Truckee and in to Nevada and caught the eclipse...

Really had no plans to go anywhere other than take a break and chill at home.
Wiped out from working a full day and riding in to the evening Friday,
& half asleep in bed early Saturday,
I get 2 texts..
One from a buddy who wants to do a quick coast loop (which is never quick)
and the other was letting me know a house was available in Truckee for a night or 2.
Can I do both?
Why not.

Ready to roll....

Perfect weather up there over the weekend, wasn't it?

I was chasing 22 intoxicated knuckleheads around Red Hawk, no carts in the water and nobody arrested made for a successful weekend.

A vicariously experienced left coast adventure is just what I need today!

I had spent all morning rolling around the coast...
Stopped here in a failed attempt to capture some more rolling shots of the Ducati...


















Fail as in FAIL........
rider/photographer communication breakdown













Still early in the day, I decide I have enough time to swing home,
grab another visor and a toothbrush and head to Truckee..
Parting with the tricolore........













And heading east......
















Now we all know I'm a tiny bit map challenged, so I am especially happy when I make it
based only on an address and my remote knowledge of the area.
I know there are no starbucks close by

What I didn't know,
was that I had scored an awesome place to hang my hat in solitude for a couple days.
Turning in the 'driveway'.....
