This is a place where I post thoughts and information about riding again after all these years and the KLR 650 that I have for that purpose.

Song of the Open Road

Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.
Henceforth I ask not good fortune-
I myself am good fortune;
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more,
need nothing,
Strong and content, I travel the open road.

Walt Whitman (1856)

In case you were wondering about whatever happened to Evel Kneivel....

Butte Evel Kneivel Daze

Maybe it would have been better to go out in flames years ago? I suppose if I was riding through I'd be tempted to stop and stare like everyone else....

Winter riding gear

The search for the right winter riding jacket continues. This birthday gift to be needs to stay under $200, and keep me safe, warm, and dry. From the tips I'm getting off the DSN KLR650 list, this seems very doable. At this point, I have several to choose from and only need to decide which one suits me best. I think a 3/4 length makes sense so that's a start. I want to get an order out this week too.
I'm also getting some leads on riding pants and will have to give this serious thought too. I haven't been however...
