    Italian votes

    Word is, the Italians are supporting Jon's nomination. Do they see something we don't?

    Jon Diaz

    I definitely want to not nominate Jon Diaz for this list. He's nowhere near the 25 worst.

  4. Too busy this year

    They called, but I turned them down. I gave them Bob Higdon's name.
  5. Magnifique

    You've done it again, Steve. I think you may have pushed me over the edge to do some riding in Europe. Expect others feel the same way. I'm already planning to spend 10 days riding CO in August, and...

    Resistor

    Actually, it's just a connector with a single jumper wire. I used to have a K100 that I took up high sometimes. I installed a small switch on the wires going to the connector, and just switched it...

    Voni and Paul Glaves

    It's been noted on other lists that Voni and Paul have been sidelined by an accident Paul had in New Mexico. According to a post by Voni, Paul's bike was hit when a driver tried to share his space on...

    For the Alaska Marine Highway, if you want to camp on deck, you can probably just show up a few hours before sailing. To book a stateroom during July and August, you will have to reserve in advance -...

    Gotta go, gotta go

    No, no, too late now. You asked, and we went to all this trouble spilling our guts on truths and fantasies of an AK trip. Now, it's your turn - you gotta go. This summer! No backing out. Gas up the...

    GS isn't required

    I hope nothing I said indicates you NEED a GS to go to AK. Your RT will do a very credible job up there for the most part. Sure better than the Gold Wings, Harleys, and my old LT, who have made it...

    Go, but don't be a Tourist

    :thumb I've been there twice on a motorcycle, 1996 on a K100LT (not exactly the perfect bike for AK) and last year on an 1150GS (close to being the perfect bike for AK). Two trips don't make me any...

    I joined the (then, about two year old) Cleveland Club as soon as I discovered it. We had some great times. Oh yeah, we seemed to go through all the usual growing/shrinking pains, but the events...

    Not your typical winter riding season, last year

    Guess I rode more than usual this past winter. Usually, I just walk past the bike on the way to the Buick in winter. But this winter I also had more to do on the bike than usual - trips to Big Easy,...

    First bike, first love

    I gotta think my first bike is the machine I will always remember as my favorite. It certainly wasn't my best bike, but the two of us - with very little help from the rest of the world - learned by...

    HID Conversions

    I installed the Touratech HID hi beam conversion for the 1150GS on my bike last fall, and I have maybe three tours on it. It is basically a legal conversion under the DOT rules, because it employs a...

    This was an acquisition last summer for when the sun's out. A week after I bought it, I left for five weeks on the GS. The Sebring is now the queen of the garage, next to a Buick LeSabre (for...

    This year was a good year. After a year pretty much off the bike for reasons best described as medical malpractice, this year I climbed back on. Some nice places too. Bike Week in Daytona Beach, and...

  22. Plausible excuse

    Hi RV,

    I think I've ducked two valuable awards in the last three years by having a plausible excuse. One was in the great State of Washington. I had passed a group of cages that all speeded up...

    I do tours for small groups of orderly riders and serious drinkers. Also for serious riders and orderly drinkers. All are lobster-inclusive.
