I started this blog because I love to take motorcycle trips both local and around the country. And I love finding that roadside attraction or quaint town and of course the best places to eat. So I'd like to share my adventures with friends old and new. And I would like to hear about yours. Feel free to share. What's the nicest ride you've ever taken? The most scenic ride? The longest ride? Rallies you've been to with thousands or a solo ride? The town you fell in love with? The food that you'd go back for? Talk about the motorcycle shops along the way. We all love a warm friendly face. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so use them to help others share your experience.

Riding season is here !!!

I took a break from the saddlebag relocation. I found these 1959 Cadillac taillights on EBay and thought that you can never have too many lights!. Being seen is very important.
I wired them as running/brake lights.

Now back to work on the side bags.. The weather is changing so we'll be on the road very soon. Luckily the little projects I'm doing don't interfere with riding the trike. Hopefully I'll be posting updated progress pictures within a few days.  See ya then.

I Squidoo Too

For those who are familiar with "Squidooing", you can check out my lenses at the link below. For those who are not, check the link and you'll see how it's done. It's a networking site that let's people share interests and information.


new additions...

I've been working on the trike getting it ready for the riding season. Looking forward to moving to Arizona soon where it's always riding season! I got this idea from a trike I saw at Americade. Thought it looked good and was functional as well so I thought I'd give it a try.

First: I lowered the rear lights. They were up where the holes are.

Then I marked and cut the old saddlebag to fit on the trike fender.

I haven't secured them yet but this is what it should look like when I'm finished
Still have a little grinding to do and then some gold door edge molding to match the trike and I've got extra storage and a very unique look on my trike.
So check back to see how it progresses. I'll post new pics as I take them and update my travel pics as well.
