Last ride before the snow

Last ride before the snow

It’s been a great year for riding for me. I’ve met some fabulous people and learned some little tricks for my bike. Had to put it away in the barn for the freeze. But I can say that I am so very glad I learned to ride. And I love the area I live in for riding - it’s awesome.  My kids are totally jealous of me when I leave “ be back later!” I always say. I never know where or how long I’ll be on the road. This trip took me to see a friend and then to...

Sweet Family Ride

Sweet Family Ride

I really like the connection I have again with the men in my family. Learning to ride a motorcycle has been the best decision I’ve made in my life. Trust me those kinds of decisions don’t come around that often.  I had a great time and even learned a trick or two. “Must work on parking in a group!”  We started in south Carson and took the foothill road through Genoa and after passing some really great farmhouses we stopped in Markleeville. Then a not so fast rip over Monitor Pass to Topaz Lake. Where my brother thought it would...

My New Normal

There are always road bumps in life. And when that happens you get on your bike and you ride. This is what I’ve been discovering over the last few weekends. They’re short rides but they’re fun. My adventure yesterday took me on Highway 89 over Monitor Pass between Markleeville and Topaz. I lived in Carson Valley almost all my life and I’ve never been on that road before. And for it being the first time ever and the first time was on my bike I’d say it was definitely a positive experience. Of course I stopped in a dirt turn out...

Did some social distancing

Did some social distancing

Saturday. No wind. 80 degrees. No traffic to speak of. Smooth sailing all the way out to Middlegate, Nevada. It sits just about 50 miles due east of Fallon along the loneliest highway. The shoe tree sits just about a mile east of a crazy little watering hole that has been all the rage for years. It will never get any bigger. Or any better, as it boasts the worlds best burgers. I had a corn dog so I can’t vouch for it. But the atmosphere is amazing even with the gathering restrictions.  The whole day taught me a few...

First ride of 2020

First ride of 2020

It wasn’t long or unusual but I got the bike out and dusted it off and filled it with gas. Did the round and round and headed up Geiger Grade for a nice relaxing cup of Chai tea with a new friend.  That Saturday was the best day so far of this new year. I truly wake every morning knowing this year is going to be one of the best.  Hope to see you all in Virginia City this year.
