I've started many projects and finished few. My goals for this new venture, or possibly adventure, are few and modest at this time. I recently purchased a Honda CBR250R and I'll try to chronicle what happens as I try to relearn motorcycle riding skills after having not ridden regularly since about 1970. I hope to do a modest amount of traveling or touring, with my first venture planned for the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. I invite you to follow along if you're so inclined.
Also, I'm going to be posting rants, if you will, about religion, politics, so-called complimentary and alternative medicine in addition to anything else that comes along that I find interesting. Please excuse how the format of this blog/website. Though I have many blogs, I'm a neophyte at best in how to properly design them.

Snap of the Blue Ridge Parkway or the Skyline Drive (Virginia), OK, I fess-up, taken on a trip with my Miata.

Back To Motorcycling...Sort Of. Make Your Point...Carry Your Message Forward.

June 19, 2012
Do any of you folks have vanity or personal plates? Hmmm. Is there a message?
Actually, if you're passionate about a cause or you just want to make people laugh or smile, hey...your license plate is a good means.
I had thought about OLDSLO...but, this one will do fine and as far as I'm concerned aptly describes me. Actually, tried to get SKPTIC, but a fellow rider beat me to it.
Some plates I get, if you will, but wonder why. The ones that say TOMSTOY (car plates have seven numbers or characters), yes, it's a Toyota. BRADSVET, OK...Brad, we can see it's a Corvette. It just seems a shame or something to pay extra and waste the opportunity to carry your message forward.
Here are two of my favorites.
Eight or ten years ago I saw this plate on a 15-year-old battered Chevrolet....DOIOU2.
Another favorite, WIENER.
OK, folks, get creative out there with your plates.
My car is WN PGSFL. My last motorcycle was AXISII.
I paid a one-time fee of $10 for what Virginia calls a scenic plate and, an extra $10 a year to proclaim to the world that I'm a SKPTIK.

Outside the dealership....

Yes, taking delivery of my new bike, May 17, 2012. The Marsee tank bag fits nicely. It's the strap-on type and you can get to the gas filler by unsnapping two of the straps. It is not in the way; however, it does expand upwards. My rainsuit is strapped to the seat.

OK, I promise to keep snaps of me to a minimum.

Yeah, I know. I look pretty old. Actually, I'm only 25, the years have been tough and they've taken their toll.

Ortlieb Large Dry Bag (Rack-Pack)

Ortlieb Large Dry Bag (Rack-Pack)

I was on the verge of placing an order with Aerostich for Ortlieb saddlebags and decided to see how this bag would work. It’s the large Ortlieb dry bag. It cavernous and holds a whopping 2990 cubic inches. And, no it’s not filled to capacity, I just stuffed it with some clothes. The bungees I happened to have, though if I decide to use this as shown, I’m going to order six ROC straps. The only things that I can think of that I’ll be packing that are damageable or breakable are my netbook and two small cameras. The cameras I can put in the tank bag and the netbook I can wrap in clothes. I know one thing, if I do decide to use this bag I’m going to have to do some stretching exercises, as I will surely not be able to throw my leg over this. Yes, definitely a step-through situation.
