Big Gig IV

January in Toledo is generally not a good time to go for a nice ride. The weather has been good enough to melt a lot of snow and ice out of the way in the past week, but that still doesn’t mean it’s quite prime-time for riding. In the meantime, I’m catching a plane and heading to New York City for a small, informal gathering called the “Big Gig” – this will be the 4th time (3rd for me). We gather for lunch, visit the International Motorcycle Show at the Javits center, then it’s off for dinner, a charity fundraiser, and some enjoyable alcoholic beverages. I’m hoping to get some of the best sushi in NYC at Sushi Yasuda the night before with a close friend, as well as finally get my hands on a glass of Leffe Brown. It’s been far too many years.  All of this should prove to be a good distraction while the snow flies, though soon it will be time to start preparing the bikes for another season…

New photos added

I’ve added some new photos to the photo gallery, now that it’s back up and working.  Click on the gallery link in the upper right corner to check them out.

Photos from the 2008 “Color in the Catskills”, as well as photos from my ride around PA in September of ‘09 have been added for all to enjoy.


The long awaited and long-promised conversion to WordPress is complete, for the moment.  It’s likely I’ll modify the theme or switch some things around, but this is going to pretty much be it.  The benefits (aside from looking nicer and being easier for me to manage) is I will be able to update far more frequently (a mobile app on my cell phone is also very helpful for this).

In more good news, the photo gallery is finally back online!  You can access it from the link in the upper right corner.  Soon, I will be adding more photos from the “Color in the Catskills ‘08″, as well as photos from some of my trips in 2009.

The “Ride Reports” (the most popular part of my site by far) are still available (also linked in the top corner of the site) though they are still in the old format.  I hope to get that cleaned up very soon for everyone.
