Reasons to love the airports in the UK

Posted by on Oct 25, 2015 in Motorcycle Vagabonding | Comments Off on Reasons to love the airports in the UK

I posted two entries last year about why international airports are so cool. Each airport is different, and you get to see a lot of things exclusive to a country, particularly their food. Now, there are more reasons to love airports, especially for those of us who tend to travel to them on our motorbikes. In the UK, motorcycle parking is much cheaper than if you were using a car. Some even offer free parking spaces for motorcycles, according to Parking4Less. If you don’t have a lot of luggage to carry (or you only need two panniers for all your luggage), motorbikes are an ideal method of transportation to travel to the airport because of how cost effective it can be. Here are several airports in the UK that have huge parking lots for motorcycles (some are free while others ask for a small...

Beginnings and Endings

Posted by on Mar 15, 2012 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, USA | 5 comments

I’m back in Idaho Falls, having completed a journey that started last October when I rode off to the Horizons Unlimited Meeting in California. What a ride! I got a 5000+ mile road trip, I got to meet up with old friends, I got a winter on New Mexican Prairie, I got to learn how to do more work on my KTM, I got time with horses, I made new friends, and I got physically, mentally and spiritually healthy. Endings. Beginnings. Beginnings. Endings. It feels good to be home. I have new writing opportunities, exciting new projects, and a new business idea (thanks to the perspective of new friends) on to how to combine my passions with my expertise with my love of he motorcycle industry with my making a living. Endings. Beginnings. Beginnings. Endings. Ever been so excited...

Albuquerque to Boulder in one (cold!) shot

Posted by on Mar 12, 2012 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, Roswell NM, USA | Comments Off on Albuquerque to Boulder in one (cold!) shot

My stint ranch-sitting in New Mexico over, last week I rode the 500 (ish) miles from Albuquerque, NM to Boulder, CO in one day. Man! was it cold. I didn’t even stop to take any pictures I was so frozen, but believe me the views were s-p-e-c-t-a-c-u-l-a-r! Snow capped peaks, snow on the side of the road, snow everywhere! As much as I love the mountains, I began to dream anything over 8,000 feet because I knew I would be super-cold and it would take me at least another hour riding  to thaw out. I hope to continue riding on to Idaho this coming week. ~MAG Please follow and like...

Madrid, NM

Posted by on Mar 11, 2012 in Adventure Travel, Motorcycle Vagabonding, USA | Comments Off on Madrid, NM

Pronounced MAD-rid, this cool little mining-turned-artist community is nestled in the mountains between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.  A popular motorcycling destination, Madrid is one of the coolest spots I’ve been to in a while. Probably most recently famous for being the location where the movie “Wild Hogs” was filmed, here is a link to more information on that spectacle. http://www.wildhogsmadridnm.com/ And here are a couple of my own (lesser famous) teaser pics…     Please follow and like...
