2013 Paso Robles (CA) Sidecar & Vintage Bike Show

Back in ’07 Karyl Lammers, who runs a shop in Paso Robles selling aftermarket motorcycle stuff, called up the Chamber of Commerce and asked if she could promote a little sidecar exhibition in the City Park during an arts & crafts show. The park was certainly big enough to allow this, and the... Read more »

“I want to come back here after the thaw.” Thus I remarked to my brother as we stared at the expanse of snow spreading out before us on Sherman Pass Road (Forest Route 22S05), the southern-most paved road over the crest of California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range. We were there in March of last... Read more »

The Trailblazers are a social organization of pioneer motorcycling enthusiasts who have met annually since 1940. They preserve the memory of those who came before us and have contributed to the sport that we all enjoy. This 2013 banquet, held April 6 in Carson, California, was the 69th annual affair,... Read more »

Caffeine injection

April 23, 2013

Around two or three o’clock every day, my eye lids get heavy and my brain turns to sludge. There’s no mistaking the symptoms—it’s coffee time! Out in the boonies, my buddies and I will pull over and brew a cup of cowboy coffee to clear our heads. In civilization, we’ll risk a fix from a gas... Read more »

26th Annual All-British Motorcycle Weekend, San Jose, California

This model was the last of the Vincent line, a fully faired '55 Series D Black Prince.

Clement Salvadori
April 15, 2013

You have to give those Brit-bike lovers a big hand; they are an incredibly enthusiastic bunch of enthusiasts, putting up with aged machines that were none too reliable when new…by current standards.  I rode British motorcycles all through the Sixties, when they were the hot item—and regular... Read more »

Day 9: Patagonia Adventure Tour

The long lonesome highway south to Punta Arenas.

Arden Kysely
April 5, 2013

(Read the dispatch from Day 8, or start at the beginning with Day 1) We get an early start (for us) from our little island on Lake Pehoe, snapping more photos of the Cuernos as the rising sun paints them in living color. In the time it takes to haul our luggage across the bridge and load the bikes, clouds... Read more »

Day 8: Patagonia Adventure Tour

Motorcycle + Cuernos = Delight.

Arden Kysely
April 3, 2013

(Read the dispatch from Day 7) This is the day I’ve been waiting for since we began this trip. The consummate Patagonian experience awaits: today we ride to Torres Del Paine National Park, home to the most spectacular scenery in the entire region. And I nearly miss it all because I can’t find my... Read more »

Muriel’s Gentlemen Friends on Motorcycles

Left to right: Bob, Steve, Aunt Muriel and your humble scribe.

Scott 'Bones' Williams
April 2, 2013

North Carolina state road 28, also known as Moonshiner 28, is one of the best twisty mountain roads anywhere. (Shhhh…don’t tell anyone.) My Aunt Muriel’s neighborhood conveniently empties onto it, and whether you turn south toward Georgia or north toward Tennessee, there are curves and switchbacks... Read more »

Day 7: Patagonia Adventure Tour

We start the day riding the plains of Argentine Patagonia on Ruta 40.

April 1, 2013

(Read the dispatch from Day 6) The weather is perfect as we depart our rustic but comfortable accommodations at Estancia Cueva De Las Manos near Baja Caracoles and continue south along iconic Ruta (route) 40, the main north-south highway in Argentine Patagonia. Eric had warned that Ruta 40 separates... Read more »

Day 6: Patagonia Adventure Tour

Arden Kysely
March 29, 2013

(Read the dispatch from Day 5) It’s hard to leave the Tres Lagos paradise, but the road beckons and the heart of Patagonia lies ahead. The morning is cool and slightly damp, trapping the dust down low as we ride through the sleepy town of Puerto Guadal. We pass two horsemen on spirited steeds that... Read more »
