WeSTOC XVIII

Members of the ST Owners Club assemble for a group photo at WeSTOC XVIII (that’s 18 if you’re rusty with Roman numerals). More than 200 members attended this year’s rally in Sooke, British Columbia. “Go Ride!” is the credo of the ST Owners Club (STOC), and members who ride a Honda ST1100 or... Read more »

Diary of a SaddleSore 1000

SaddleSore1000-01

Planetary alignment, good fortune and luck helped me complete a SaddleSore 1000—riding at least 1,000 miles in less than 24 hours. The previous day (Friday) I completed Route 5 of the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route, a multi-day dual-sport ride and camping trip from California to Washington, mostly... Read more »

ART ATTACK: Ian Barry’s Cataclysmic Café Racers

Ian Barry named this bike “The White."

Perhaps some would call it a “crime of passion” to “recycle” classic British bikes into “works of art,” but perhaps there’s significant leeway when the custom creations are for the most salvaged bits and pieces reconfigured into scratch built and streetable “one-offs.” Then again, do... Read more »

Having left my bike in the big field for motorcycle parking at the Laguna Seca MotoGP, when I come back I find tucked into my seat a simple brochure promoting a Classic Spanish Motorcycle Show at the Santa Cruz fairgrounds. Spanish motorcycles? They are all classics; I remember half a dozen Spanish marques,... Read more »

Spring brings April showers, May flowers and, like clockwork, a call from my buddy Bob, suggesting we take a “little” motorcycle trip, something in the neighborhood of five or six days, two or three thousand miles, with plenty of twisty two-lane blacktops and few interstates. Since my wife and I... Read more »

Adriatic Moto Tours: Part 4

Wenceslas Square in Prague

Our Adriatic Moto Tours Eastern Europe adventure has now lasted two weeks, and I’m sad that it will end with our ride today. When I last checked in, I reported that our group of 14 riders (with two riding guides and the van driver) was on its way to Prague, and it truly was a magical city. Shortly... Read more »

Adriatic Moto Tours: Part 3

As we dined in at the hotel dining room, we were treated to a troupe of dancers: two men on clarinet and accordion, with two couples in a frenzy of local traditional dance. For 20 minutes they entertained us with leaps and whirls and the intricacy of their moves.

Our Czech/Hungary tour has now taken our group of 14 from Budapest to the High Tatras in the north of Slovakia, then for a couple days in Krakow, Poland. Budapest was a real treat, and now in the Tatras we again rode into mountains. The town of Stary Smokovec, where we stayed one night, is a ski resort... Read more »

Adriatic Moto Tours: Part 2

This statue in Budapest has been named The Statue of Liberty, an heroic woman standing on a column with her arms upraised and holding what appears to be a palm leaf. It was erected by the Russians in 1947 to celebrate their victory in the war.

I have been traveling in Austria and Eastern Europe with Adriatic Mototours now for five days, and have been impressed with how well organized the tour is. In addition to the very detailed tourbook we tour members were sent originally, each morning we have a briefing in the hotel lobby before saddling... Read more »

Blog: Throw Away Mentality? Give it the Boot.

Acocio “Ace” Agostinho understands boots from a rider's perspective as well as a cobbler's.

Too often, things that just need a repair get thrown away. Perhaps the right parts aren’t available, or no one around has the skills and tools required to fix what’s broken. When the cost to buy new is small it may not be a big deal, but that wasn’t the case when I went to replace my riding boots. I’ve... Read more »

Adriatic Moto Tours: Part 1—Loose in the East

We rode from Ljubljana, Slovenia, to Graz, Austria, and had lunch at a restaurant overlooking this castle and a twisty road.

I am currently starting Day 5 of a 14-day Czech-Hungary tour with Adriatic Moto Tours. This company, based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, offers several tours that mostly cover Eastern Europe, the part that most Americans leave for later after first exploring the Alps and western countries. The company sent... Read more »
