Photography Fun: Speed

I helped a friend with a photography project. The project was to show speed. We thought it would be fun to dress up in my motorcycle racing leathers and ride a bicycle with packages strapped to the back. I think the photos turned out well. What do you think?

The photographer is Jessiena Lake; you can see more of her photos at:

-23F Winter Motorcycle Ride

A blast from the past! With the quarantine, I've been digging around my bulging drafts folder. I found this gem from the winter of 2014 which was never published here or on youtube.

Enjoy a short clip of me riding the Ural at -22.5F which I'm going to call -23F. With the windchill, it's colder than -60F at 60mph. I rode around for about 30 minutes on the freeway before going home. I'm not sure why I never posted about this. I edited the video nearly 90%, and didn't finish. What was 2014 me thinking?

Enjoy the video!

Back on the Motorcycle

It has been great to get back on the motorcycle this year! After the crash last year, I didn't ride. I was waiting for my body to heal up. I'm happy to report, I've graduated physical therapy and have been riding regularly this year!

I had to replace some of my gear and get some things repaired. I have a new R3 light vs my R1 light from Aerostich. I also got a new helmet and am now using an R2 from Schuberth since they don't make my Arai anymore. Thankfully, I got a great deal on the Schubert as a ridercoach through the MSF. I was also able to send my airbag vest into Helite and they repaired the damage on the shoulder.

I haven't repaired the SV650 yet. It's been sitting in the corner of the garage. More time for me to enjoy the Vstrom! I do intend to fix it, but haven't found the motivation to do so yet. I hope you are able to get out on your bike and enjoy the ride!
