  1. All good info, Thanks I guess about now is a good time to get into the GPS mapping thing. I was hopping Pastapilot would join. Hes a pro.
  2. I have a "walk about pass" from Dec 27-31 which I intend to use for an adventure ride. If there is interest from others I am flexible as to route/bike etc. I am thinking day 1 Viejas Grade, down Orroflame, across Ocotillo Wells area then Bradshaw Trail over to the river. From there I am lost and need help. I would like to work my way north up the river to Laughlin and do the Mojave Trail cause its awesome. From there head south through Joshua Tree area I will be taking camping gear but am not opposed to hoteling it either. If I ended going alone I would probably switch to more adventure bike friendly as I don't have the balls of others to ride in the Dez alone. The wife got a new knee for Christmas so will be at home on house/dog watch. I now know what to get her next Christmas!
  3. I thought that's why I have a Wife.
  4. Everything about northern Italy was cool. From the roads to the people to drinking beer with the locals in the hotel Pizzeria. Jim. I was drooling about being on a bike but had to settle on the VW Golf Diesel to accommodate the wife. One noticeable thing was every country we went to there were Wee Stroms! Also the drivers noticeably more thoughtful than here. maybe they haven't discovered texting yet! Sooo many photos. I felt like a Japanese Tourist. Sorry Folks. The gold mountains were taken on the bridge in the second photo at fist sun peeking over the huge mountains behind me. This is from our hotel room
  5. That blows. took me like 2 hrs to compose that. Should stick to riding motorcycles Thanks for info bags. I tried pasting both the photo and the text but just keep getting the red light. From Amazon Prime photos
  6. I recently had a vacation in Europe with the wife and discovered this. After getting off a cruise ship in Venice we rented a car and headed north into the Alps. We had booked a hotel in a little town called Cortina D Ampezzo and for 4 days just headed off in each direction to see what we could find. Every day we were on perfect mountain switchback roads. The roads were impeccable with guys way out in the mountains blowing leaves off! There were huge washes coming out of the mountains that I guess were decomposed granite, good for building roads and they probably don't get baked in the summer to screw up the asphalt. I think we lucked out on timming as we were between seasons so there were no other bloody tourists and it was perfect weather in the fall. The temps were around 10c and I spoke to a few guys on bikes who said this area is very popular in the summer for obvious reasons. Also spoke to a few germans in there Porsche's out for a rip. Turns out this was the famous Staller pass which is one way. light goes green for 15 mins. Looked like a starting grid at the track with everone lining up in there Audi's,Beemers etc waiting for the green at the top of the hr. most had just come up and turned around. Staller Pass (top) is on the Austria/Italy border. Couldn't see a Kug Sticker While the wife was asleep I found a nice little gravel road with a sign that said something like Castelle 4km, Hmmm. Some more roads. I like roads. I have traveled many continents of our planet and this was the awesomeist roads I have found. Better than my native New Zealand No wonder they breed good moto gp riders. Anyway I felt this was worth sharing and was an awesome little getaway with a little adventure and if anyone is interested in more info I would love to share tracks. OK I guess the cruise was worth 1 photo this is the wife in Kotor, Montenegro which was a pretty cool place (Bloody Tourists)
  7. John You trying to kill me! I did LA BV to V last year (all hard ways) and it was toooo much for me. Not enough "time for a cold one now and then" Currently I can realy only do weekends. I do intend on doing an overnighter loop riding from SD-Bradshaw, overnight in Yuma ish and back border ish. Maybe around Christmas Time. Did alot of that with Pasta Pilot about 10 years back on a ocean to river and back. I will monitor this and join if possible.
