The Bumblebee and the Vespa 2014

I think it's time for me to redefine what this new blog is about. In the past I've posted individual blogs for motorcycle/motor scooter rides to places like Alaska, Nova Scotia, Key West, Mexico, Canada, New York, etc. That's all well and good but it seems nowadays I'm dividing my rides into shorter ones comprised of two or more weeks each on different bikes. The total time and mileage is about the same, it's just split into multiple rides with a break somewhere in the middle.

The summer of 2014 serves as a good example of that wherein I rode south to Tombstone, AZ on my '92 BMW R100GS Bumblebee/Ural sidecar rig, (phew!) then returned home for a few days and set out again on my '07 Vespa 250ie motor scooter to visit Canada. That summer has gone and the seasons have changed as will the reports, some will be about shorter rides, some will be about maintenance, and maybe on occasion I'll post a photo or two just for interest. I may even introduce other bikes, a few of which are lurking under cover in the barn...

Navigating this blog is easy, just scroll down the list of posts by date to whatever interests you, click on it and you're in. Photos can be viewed in larger format by clicking on them.

Jun 26 - Day 03 Bumblebee - My gawd I'm still in NV!

Boy when I don't have to write anything clever, just post pics, this is easy as heck. I should have tried this a long time ago

Early morning still riding south. I think.
There's no end to it is there? I should have been in the asphalt business.
You wouldn't believe how nice this scene was. Too bad my trigger finger is so shakey.

My new water hump. Left my  good one at the motel in K-Falls.

Would you really consider this a "roadside attraction?"
OK, how about this one then? They play bad music really LOUD. Makes you want to rush right in and buy stuff. Yup.

Down the road I find a rest stop

And a very large tree conveniently located.

I did not pee on that tree. Swear. I swear I didn't 

Cool little town out in the desert

It could be your's for only $500. Minor problem with a fire in the wiring but other than that....

Gold City buildings

A Glass Bottle house. Why do people do that anyway?

Spooky. Haunted. Zombies probably live there.
OK, so day three's done, 353 miles total. Hardly noticed it, can't feel my butt but that's probably more information than you need, eh?
