Staying Warm

Love my HippoHands. Can ride below 30 degrees in comfort. Check out my HippoHands on this page.

With desert roads closed and rain expected for the weekend, we have had to change the ride schedule. Now going south along the coast. That’s ok, it is a favorite that will include Big Sur.

Sunshine, blue sky, clear in San Francisco, beautiful day to ride with my love Jon Baker. 

Rain, rain, go away, Vicky Jo wants to go out and play with the DRZ

I see sunshine within driving distance….  Death Valley, here we come!


Escaping the rain!

Continuous rain at this time of year can be so discouraging for motorcycle maniacs.  So, we need a weekend escape and are looking for sunshine.  We found a better forecast in the California desert a few hours south of Sacramento.  Plans are shaping up for a motorcycle excursion next weekend to Death Valley.  Check our calendar for more details.

January Update

Working on this website, what better thing to do on these many rainy days? Can’t ride :-(.    This time for sure my mother was right– I often bite off more than I can chew.  Successful in this endeavor means figuring out the DSLR, Lightroom Creative Cloud, and Word Press…WHOA!!  If that wasn’t enough, Jon got me a new MAC for Christmas.  I have never used a MAC before, but I am loving it!  Thank you Jon Baker!

The point is, I am learning, many things simultaneously, and the purpose is to share the joy of  motorcycling as a husband wife team with our friends and family.  The motorcycling part is the real joy and we are hoping to find others who want to learn and share with us as we explore Northern California and the world.
