Happily Ever Oberhofer

During the first weekend of December there were blizzards raging through the Midwest, but I was safely burying my toes in the sands of Anna Maria Island on the Gulf Coast of Florida. No, I wasn’t the one getting married, but I was in the wedding party.  It was a wonderful weekend for old friends

Riding to the Top of the World

The Top of the World is cold in August. Within the last week of riding I’ve gone from blazing heat in Kansas to the rainy cold of Montana. And I’m so tired…

Center of My Known Universe

Things I’ve learned riding to the center of my American Universe:
Nothing worth telling anyone about is easy.
Life is 98% drudgery on your way to the highlights.
The good bits will always come, learn to appreciate the drudgery…

Center of the States

I was as far away from all the oceans as I could possibly be today. It sort of defined the term “land-locked”. The Center of the Lower 48 States, just outside of Lebanon, KS…more photos…

Riding North

This begins the 3000 mile motorcycle trip from Kansas City to Montana. I’ll be quickly passing through Sturgis before all their festivities begin and on to Billings. There I’ll be meeting up with old friends and we’ll ride the Beartooth Pass (which is a Bucket-list item for me) After that, we’ll just wing it. Could

Just another day on the road…

I found a man dying on the side of the road early in the morning. I drove right past him, no, it couldn’t be that…but then the reality of the situation sunk in during a hasty u-turn. He was old and collapsed on the side of the road. My only thoughts were “Please don’t let

Biff Reunion – Day 1

This is the first full day of my full vacation. I’ve landed safely at our friend’s lake home on Smith Mt. Lake Virginia. Amazing place and wonderful people.

So, what happens when you start throwing around a GoPro camera while swimming? The girls take over the production…

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 650. My questions were, could

Biff Fest XX

Floating around Smith Mountain Lake in the heart of Virginia. A wonderful weekend with good friends, good food, good weather and a GoPro Hero camera. A special thanks to our gracious hosts, The Cooper Family. Thanks isn’t even enough for what they’ve given us over the last 20 years. We are truly blessed.

Silo Tree

Seriously…somebody built a silo around a tree. This just goes to show the dumbing down of America (or is it just the dumbing down of me…derp).

Way Too Early…

I’m up way too early getting packed and heading to the airport. Why? Because it’s on again…and this time it’s bigger and better. I’m heading out to Atlanta today for the new revised IPPE trade show. I don’t have any idea what that stands for, but I know it’s a combination of the Poultry Show
