Escape winter, motorcycle the Road to Hana!

nahiku-road-juEscape winter! Motorcycle the Road to Hana.  We just finished an extended weekend get-away to Maui and took cruisers on the Road to Hana.  It was warm and beautiful and best of all, seen from the seat of a motorcycle.  Check it out on 2shareourride.com under Trips.  CLICK HERE to jump straight to notes of this ride.

Motorcycling Road to Hana. Extreme weather requires extreme measures….

maui-best-9-of-15Constant rain, cancelled rides, disappointment, NO MOTORCYCLING!! Our much anticipated February Death Valley ride cancelled due to weather.  Jon says I was in a funk, needed to get out.  We were both secretly doing it and accidentally discovered we were both thinking the same thing—how much would it cost to get outta this rain and ride in the sunshine of Maui?  We decided that since we were both thinking about it, we should just do it.  A weekend in Maui and a motorcycle ride of the road to Hana.  Great medicine for my funk!  And shared with my son Juan Reed.  A perfect weekend with details on riding the road to Hana on cruisers coming soon under Trips at 2shareourride.com

img_8374Yesterday we went for much needed motorcycle therapy!  From Sacramento, we went north on I-80 to Auburn and then to Forrest Hill.  From Worton’s Market on Forrest Hill Road we turned north and took Iowa Hill Road to Iowa Hill and then back to Colfax and south to Sacramento. It was a fantastic ride for about 90 miles of winding curves and dips, waterfalls, streams, smatterings of roadside snow and pine needles.  The sun was out and the temperature was a delightful 50 degrees.  Fantastic day of easy asphalt and zero traffic. This ride is a keeper for a future repeat and we would love to share with friends if anyone is interested we’d be glad to take you.

Finally we got out for a Ride

It’s been raining forever here, so was nice to get out with Vicky for a nice ride. All paved but still good. Both of my bikes have new front tires so need to get then rolling. I stopped balancing tires it hasn’t made any difference.

Get out on your bikes and you will be happy.

 

Jack

Safely lifting your motorcycle off the ground is essential for tire changes and other routine maintenance.  Our big bikes have center stands but the smaller bikes don’t. The KTM 690 is too heavy for me to lift on a MX stand.  My solution was to buy this jack… Continue reading “Jack”
