300 Miles of Missouri

It was a long hot Saturday. A test run for things to come later this summer. My idea was to day-trip it from Kansas City to Carthage, MO…about 300 miles round-trip. I wanted to try and do that all in one day, and take all back roads, on my KLR

Dreary Day Dreaming…

Just dreaming of better days and riding. It’s so dreary and grey outside. Midwest winter consists of grey cold…that’s it. On top of that I seem to have lost my enthusiasm. I feel the white-water rapids of life coming around the corner…change is coming…change is good. Or maybe I just
