Ride Reports

The Ride Report section is broken into three parts.  Learning to Travel (My first long distance rides), A Year on The Road (just what it says) and The Ride Continues (Trips across the western USA on my Aprilia Caponord Adventure Motorcycle).   Please note in some places, trips are not sequential, the order is screwed up, misplaced, etc.  That should be fixed by the time the new SS website launches in early 2014.  Enjoy reading!

By the way, this blog is written on Microsoft Live Writer – which I hate with a passion.  Thank the geniuses at Microsoft for continuing to screw up what was once an excellent program.

THE RIDE CONTINUES – 2009 – 2013

If the State on the map below is colored – I’ve ridden there.  In many cases, I’ve ridden there more than once.  The Ride Reports are not in any particular order – sorry.  I’ll be correcting this on the new website.  Expect to see the changes in 2014.
