A Few More Details…

Howdy! So, it was pointed out that it might be nice to actually describe what the actual issue with the bike was, all the fun I had with the dealership, and how long it took to resolve. Good point. The issue: DCT stuck in first gear and wasn't even thinking of doing anything different a …

Taz Rides Again!

Yep, It's been a while. Partly because I wanted to let my attitude towards the shop I worked with level out a bit as it was a very negative, yet very educational, experience. The fascinatingly poor capacity of a large dealership to deal competently, honestly, and reasonably with what should have been a fairly straightforward …

My, What a Busy Week!

The riding season kicked off nicely this year then fell flat on its ass. While ripping it up on OHV trails during the Crooked River Campout outside of Prineville in late March, the trusty Twin got stuck in first gear and wouldn't pop out. After getting hauled to Bend it was determined, after a long …

Totally Called It!

Calm Before the Storm That was a fuckin' hoot! Got to return to a camp I used to love as a kid and it was still spectacular and empty, hung out with my best buddy in the whole wide world in Kalamity Flats, made a new friend at a coffee shop in Lakeview, tripped my …

That was Fun and This Next Trip’ll be Funner!

My Big Bad Desert I just can't express how stoked I am to have found motorcycles for exploring the world. Absolutely everything about it is right up my alley, even the sucky shit. No one remembers the trip that was both trouble free and exciting, because those 2 things don't exist together unless you think …

Now that I’m sure no one will ever read this…..

Having been almost a year since I've put anything up here, and having also killed all social media links, you will have to be a pretty dedicated follower or too lazy to ever unsubscribe to be exposed to this babble. Really have no idea where this is going to go so we'll be in the …

Being All Adult and Such

Cheers, good readers!! How's it been? As typical, much has happened since the end of the big trip. That interview I cut the trip short for paid off well. I'm 2 weeks in on being a Field GIS Tech with a sweet small engineering firm that I'll never name here. Like to keep personal and …

Home. 11,156 Miles and 7 Weeks Later

Ugh. Holy shit, it's over. For now. That was a haul unlike any other I've attempted. Trying to find words to encapsulate a trip of such size is difficult, hell, trying to grasp all that was seen and done is a lost cause. Gotta love photos and blogging for keeping track of the memories and …

Family Funtime

Rolling into Hartland, WI had me nervous initially, but very soon that all went away and a most excellent time was had. For a very long time family for me has consisted of my sister, bro-in-law and their kids. My folks bailed from Wisconsin to the west coast soon after getting married and didn't keep …

Dinosaurs, Oil, Rain and Flat. Lots of Flat.

So, after riding 275 miles through a driving rain storm in fucking August it was time to hunker in a cheap hotel in Eau Claire, WI. Yes, I'm in Wisconsin. Let me tell ya how I got here and what I seen. I seen some stuff, man. Lots of stuff. In case you weren't aware, …
