Blog: Moto Espana Show, Santa Cruz, California

Over 30 bikes were entered for judging the concours event.

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 »

Blog: Rollin’ Down Route 23 and Beyond

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 »

‘Bones, y’all need tars’ – Rider Blog

Other long-time and far-away customers of Keel Brother Motorcycle Tires came along for the ride when your humble scribe got new “tars.” (l – r) Chris McKnight from Ontario (via Scotland); co-owner Tim Keel; Bob Fortuna from Rhode Island (via New Jersey); Steve Efthyvoulou from New Jersey (via Cyprus).

In just a few days I was leaving on a 3,500 mile trek that would include some of the best mountain twisties in the East. After giving my Honda ST1300 a careful once-over, I felt confident that my dual-compound sport touring tires had more than enough tread remaining for the trip. Alas, not so. The combination... Read more »

2013 Paso Robles (CA) Sidecar & Vintage Bike Show

April in Paso Robles (CA)is a delightful month, with leafy trees and the vineyards just beginning to green out.

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 »

2013 Trailblazers Banquet

A scene of the sold-out crowd at the 2013 Trailblazers Banquet.

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 »
