Happy 2014!

I enjoyed every moment of 2013, but I am ready to see what’s next.  For me, it was a remarkable year… started it off at the equator in Ecuador; rode my KLR to the southern most tip of South America; returned to a warm welcome of friends and family… but the adventures didn’t stop there – Read more →

a Time to say goodbye: The sale of my beloved KLR

Close to the Finale:

I had spent 46,579 miles with Oscar, my trusty KLR685  since 2009.   I adorned him with all the best modifications, including gold chains and improved doohickeys, even though you wouldn’t know by looking at it.
