Dolomites

Dexter Ford
February 5, 2014

Austrians and Italians have fought for centuries over the Dolomites. Now we know what all the fuss was about. About 50 million years ago, Africa, which was probably glancing down at its iPhone, crashed headfirst into Europe, which was just sitting in plate-tectonic traffic, minding its own business.

Landscape along the Savannah River National Scenic Highway. (Photos by Alan Paulsen) Frankly, I don’t understand why a rally was ever held in Myrtle Beach.

Stopping to enjoy the view outside of Puertecitos, a short ride south of Ensenada, we rested and admired the Sea of Cortez. My buddy Dave’s rental BMW F 800 GS, from MotoQuest, was perfect for the trip. Having completed a long tour, everyone asks me: “Where ‘ya going next?” After reading a newspaper... Read more »

January 3, 2014

I glanced down at the clock on my GPS and saw the time change from 6:59 to 7:00 a.m. I looked back up and saw Doug Gray pull into our meeting spot. Punctuality is a quality I have long associated with Doug. I’ve also learned to appreciate his ability to combine interesting roads into great routes. That... Read more »

Whidbey Island’s beautiful sunset is the finale of a perfect riding day. (Photos by Phil Buonpastore) Riding a motorcycle in the Pacific Northwest is chock full of yin and yang.

The year was 1806. After traversing the flat plains of what is now eastern Colorado, Zebulon Pike saw a smudge on the horizon. The next day the smudge became a bump. By the third or fourth day, Pike realized he had a mountain to climb. I had the same feeling as I cruised westward on State Route 24, headed... Read more »
