Achievement Unlocked: Slacking Motorcycle Blogger!
Greetings from the land of absentee bloggers! I thought it was about time I brushed some of the cobwebs away and put up an update.
You missed me, didn’t you? 😉
Just go along with it even if you didn’t. It’s good for my battered self esteem.
In the couple of weeks since I last posted, I’ve actually ridden my motorcycle quite a lot. For some reason, I just haven’t taken the time to write about it. That really goes against the whole premise of being a blogger, doesn’t it? I told you I like to live on the edge.
So, What’s New?
Things on the Ural front are status quo. The 3-wheeled smile machine is still happily chugging along bringing sunshine to the masses. No problems with it, since some folks have asked. ::knocks wood::
I get it – but it always bugs me when people ask if anything has gone wrong with it. It’s just a little douchey. If something craps out on it, you guys will be the first to know.
I am still in awe with just how people react to the big orange girl. It is always met with a smile. And that… makes me happy.
My sick Tiger was all fixed up a few weeks ago.
Remember how the “thingy” had been wonky by the ignition? Well it turned out a wire inside had broken loose. Why? Who knows? And really, I don’t care. All I know is the Tiger and I were reunited and it feels so good.
That should cover your Peaches and Herb quota for the month.
The Berkshire Big Adventure
It’s almost time for the 2013 Berkshire Big Adventure ride – my favorite ride of the year. This year it is a two-day event so I’m all sorts of excited about that.

AMA National 2 Day Adventure Ride
May 18-19, 2013
Seeing as how I haven’t ridden my Husky offroad in months, I am expecting to be really rusty. Being rusty when you already suck at something… well, that should bring about some interesting results. Ah, what the hell. I’m hoping for the best!

And our video from 2011 that I just love to recycle because it was so much fun:
The Minuteman 1000
I’ve had to withdraw from doing the Minuteman Rally because I still haven’t mastered being in 3 places at once. Oh well, whaddayagonnado?
Equinox to Equinox Rally
I’m still riding around taking pictures of things for the E2E Rally.
I’ve been trying to get off of the Island to pick up some points and leave the local stuff for when I have less time to get out.
The downside of this plan is that I fucking hate the Long Island Expressway at this point and am sick of making the hour long slog to get off this island. Cue violins. But, that’s the price I have to pay for living in paradise! Oh. Right. 😛
So – that’s what happening around here.
How About You?
Trips, events, rallies – what are you up to?
