I almost feel sorry for you guys, it's early summer here, I'm taking the thermal liner out of my jacket today!

900SS yesterday which was fun except I had to go into the city centre at rush hour, however the open pipes on that thing certainly make for a lot easier lane splitting than the R80 does. I know what Moses felt like parting the Red sea!

Today it's the Ducati again but I'm headed for the west coast beaches at midday for an extended lunch, lots of open windy roads and no traffic.

My Suzuki TU250X, I rode it to work yesterday afternoon and home at 1:30 this morning. It was a hot 50 degrees.

Nothing, I'm sorry to say, 990 in hibernation for a week now, snowing heavy today. Start counting the days.... end of march 2014, with a bit of luck. Start waxing the skis, so all is not lost, skiing is as good as riding!

I rode my 2013 CRF250L today. It has a bit more upper end then the TW but is still fairly low. The TW has an awesome granny gear that makes slow up hill trail riding a blast.

Great smaller bikes with a classic look. They are very popular with the MSF classes. They can take a pretty good beating too!

Nice day in central Virginia, mid 60's, got dark too soon.

Rode my new to me '05 Beta 270 Rev3. Fell down 3 times. Cleared the new big log 6 times, once really well. Lotsa fun going slow.

This one started out as a MSF bike, I bought it with 615 miles and have put over 6,000 more trouble free miles on it.

A Honda Click scooter! Hey, I'm in Thailand on vacation

It's actually quite fun...I understand the appeal of scooters with their high fuel economy, ease of use, easy maintenance and so on. Doesn't give you a woody when you turn it on or goose the throttle but it has it's own element of fun.

My wife fly's in tonight so I'm going to turn this 125cc model in and upgrade to the.....150cc!

Autumn here, but I rode home today without my thermal liner. Short sleeved shirt under my jacket.

Rode this today, but not there. There would be cold. And the road is closed due to snow.

Ridden in the past 24 hours

My everyday ride for the past ten years, looking shiny because I used a flash for the photo... It has done me umpteen thousand miles and is probably the best value for 4,000 baht ($US 125) I ever spent.



For high days and holiday trips further than about 10 km from home I picked up this 1997 Honda Dream 100 for 16,000 baht ($US 500), also ten years ago. It has done 221,000 km (130,000 miles) and looks good for many more. I took the picture during a 400 km trip done one long weekend.



Being the weekend (and a rainy one at that) I have ridden both in the past 24 hours. The rain, and puddles is the only washing they ever get.
