    We're Ford guys now! 2018 Mustang GT

    While I've had a string of F150s, I've not really considered myself a hardcore blue oval fan. But, I think I can't deny it anymore, I'm a Ford guy. Really it's Nabster's fault. He let me drive the Orange Furry and that pushed an idea that had been fermenting in my head to a full boil. Next...

    Summer 2017 Tour (feat. Blind_Io, Kiki and Der Stig)

    Another summer, time for another bike trip. This year it was time for one side of my family to have it's reunion and we settled on all heading to see Grandma up in Williston, North Dakota. Since my job also requires me to travel there fairly regularly, I figured I'd kill 3 birds with one...

    Ownership Verified: 2016 Moto Guzzi Griso

    After years of only having vintage, touring and dirt bikes, I decided I needed something sporty and different. I considered various naked supersports, like the KTM Superduke R, the Aprilia Tuono, Ducati Monster 1200, etc., but I decided that I still can't trust myself not to be an idiot with a...

    How far can I ride in 10 days? Let's find out!

    This trip took place from June 25 through July 4. Day 1 - Dallas, TX to North Platte, NE - 740 Miles Nothing like starting a trip by setting a personal record for one day mileage. It was a fairly uneventful run up the I-35 slab to Oklahoma City, then onto the two lane roads. Somewhere in...

    Ride to Arizona and back in 3 days? Sure!

    Nearly 2 months later, I finally found the time to write up my trip I took between May 28 and May 30. Another 3 day weekend? That can only mean one thing. Ride as far as possible! Day 1 - Dallas, TX to Socorro, NM Time for slab, lots of slab. The ultimate purpose of this trip is to ride US...

    What to do with a 3 day weekend? Ride 1600 miles to New Mexico!

    I was getting the itch to hit the road again so I decided to check out some new ground. My previous weekend trips to Arkansas had been somewhat underwhelming. I was longing for the big vistas and real mountains of the west. With the Labor Day holiday coming up, I got on google maps, drew a...

    Utah 2015. Moab plus a 2 day highway blitz across the entire state.

    Spring. My favorite time of year. Not because I'm ready for it to be 100 degrees, but because it means the annual Moab trip is coming. This year was no different. Last year I moved back home to Dallas, so this year I was driving in from the south. After getting stranded in Rawlins Wyoming...

    Ownership Verified: 244 inches of America v2.0 (2014 Ford F150)

    New with the old New is a 2014 F150 Lariat in Ingot Silver Metallic with the extremely rare crew cab long bed combo, just like my old 2011 XLT. Main difference is in the interior. In 2013 Ford did a major mid cycle refresh to the F150 greatly improving the interior center stack and adding...

    A weekend in the Black Hills of South Dakota

    What better way to celebrate the independence of your country than by looking at faces blasted into mountains with dynamite? It also helps there are miles and miles of fabulous twisty roads. With that in mind I decided to take a quick 4 day jaunt south to the black hills. Day 1 - Williston...

    My 2014 Utah Moto Adventures

    My favorite time of year was here again, it was time to go back to Moab. After the usual 11 month wait it was time to go back and have more fun that should be allowed. The last 2 years I had stayed in Utah a little longer after the dirt riding to do some other things, but this time, we were...

    Ownership Verified: Solving my First World problem (1997 Honda XR650L)

    If first world problem sob stories annoy you, you are in the wrong thread. :mrgreen: Anyways, I had a problem. My beautiful restored XR350R was too slow to used for dual sporting and lacked the equipment to be fully road legal. My Yamaha Super Tenere is a fantastic traveling bike, a...

    My 2013 Utah, Colorado and Arizona Moto Adventures

    As soon as I got home from my Moab trip last year, I was already stoked to go back. I immediately started looking for a suitable machine so I wouldn?t have to rent again. Over Christmas I purchased a restored 1985 Honda XR350R which would be primarily for the 2013 trip. After a few minor...

    Ownership Verified: At last, a proper sized Motorcycle (2012 Yamaha Super Tenere)

    Well, after spending countless hours over months trying to make my 1998 Tiger into the bike I wanted it, I was still getting nowhere. I could barely stand to be on it for 100 miles which just doesn't cut it on what is supposed to be a touring bike. After much careful thought, I decided to hell...

    My 2012 Moab Moto Adventures

    A little back story: Ever since I was about 12, reading about the Easter Jeep Safari in various offroad magazines, I had wanted to visit Moab, Utah, one of the outdoor meccas of the western US. One of my dad's coworkers who had been riding dirt bikes in moab for the last 30 years or so had...

    Ownership Verified: 1998 Triumph Tiger

    After browsing craigslist obsessively while saving money for the last 5 months I have finally pulled the trigger on an adventure bike. After looking at countless BMWs, KTMs, Suzuki 'Stroms on CL, an ad for a 98 Tiger popped up in Colorado but it was a little bit out of my radius. Then two...

    Ownership Verified: 244 inches of America (2011 Ford F-150)

    This is my new 2011 Ford F150. It is a supercrew with the 6.5 foot bed, and 4 wheel drive, the largest configuration F150 available. It has the 5.0 DOHC 32v 360hp V8 and a few other minor options such as Ford's SYNC system and the chrome package. And for size comparison, here it is with my...

    News: Bills would require license plate for all [bicycles], annual registration

    http://www.cbs6albany.com/articles/license-1283235-plate-albany.html An interesting development from New York. I'm all for it. If cyclists want full rights as road users, having them pay a modest registration fee seems quite reasonable as the rest of us have to do it.

    Hondas....

    Now that I'm finally going to be moving on all of my various motorcycle projects, it is time to create a single unified thread for all of the updates. 1993 Honda Nighthawk 750 I picked this up right after my return from the frozen northlands as a project. It showed a mere 1400 original miles...

    1984 Honda VF500F Interceptor

    Well, I've decided it is finally time to make a thread on my new (to me) bike. It is a 1984 Honda VF500F Interceptor which was practically a steal, it was an offer I couldn't refuse. Anyways, I will always remember the day Spectre and I brought it back to his shop because it also happens to be...

    No 56k: 1945 Jeep Brochure

    Years ago, I was at a military vehicles show here in Dallas. My dad and I stopped at this one guy's booth because he had an odd looking CJ-2a with brass 'Jeep' badges on it. It turns out that it was an early pre-production model and since I showed such interest, he gave me an original 1945...
