Saturday Afternoon Local Ride

This ride took place on 'Saturday March 27th, 2021'

Sadly, the oil filler cap on the R1100S has failed again, so I have to pull the valve cover. As a result, I changed the oil and filter on the DR650SE and adjusted the chain. I'll do valves and plugs at a later date. There's really not much of a plan for this ride. I figure we'll just tool around where the mood takes us.

Exploring bridges above the falls

This ride took place on 'Saturday November 7th, 2020'

Thinking of using what could be one of the last good riding weekends of 2020 to explore how many times I can cross the Potomac above great falls without getting totally lost. This would be my first foray into creating a ride plan on Miles by Motorcycle, so hoping to get some suggestions and feedback from other riders.

Tree Tunnel Ride

This ride took place on 'Monday October 19th, 2020'

Duncan and I are talking about riding tomorrow (Monday the 19th) but are not yet sure where we're going to go. Maybe do a loop through Southern Maryland and look at one of our favorite tree tunnel roads, Route 224? Not sure.

Showing Craig local roads

This ride took place on 'Saturday October 17th, 2020'

Years ago, I bought parts K100RS from Craig. He recently reached out on messenger saying he had picked up a K1300S and was interested in being shown some good local roads. I thought maybe we could show Craig and Tim some of our go to local roads maybe doing a loop up through parts of the Power of Left and then to points North looping up towards Catoctin. My only constraint is that I am having some electrical work done on Saturday so will have to wait for that to be completed. I'll post updates here as it gets close to completed. So consider the two o'clock departure time a rough guess. I figure we can all meet at Duncan's house. Seeing three K1300's following an R1100S should be a noteworthy sight.

Sunday Local Skinny Roads Ride

This ride took place on 'Sunday October 4th, 2020'

Not really sure at this point where we should go. I suppose it'll depend on how well we are both doing tomorrow. Lately, it's been a toss up. Maybe back to the Indian Springs Road area we rode with Bruce?

Getting the Band Back Together

This ride took place on 'Sunday September 20th, 2020'

While it's not the 10 day ride we would prefer, Duncan, Bruce, and I are going to ride together for the first time in a very long time. I'm pondering super slab up to Falls Road North of Baltimore, one of our favorites, and then loop over random roads to Catoctin ... dinner at McGinthy's at 8.

DR650SE Test Ride

This ride took place on 'Sunday August 30th, 2020'

So my buddy destroyed his leg a few months ago in a tragic scooter accident. (Cue Spinal Tap Drummer memorial.) He's recovered enough to attempt a modest first ride since the injury. There isn't much of a plan other than to see if he can manage to shift and hold the bike upright.

Ford Routes and Western Maryland Ride

This ride took place on 'Monday October 28th, 2019'

After some discussion, we decided to re-trace part of the route Duncan and I did with Jim Ford some years ago and follow that with a run out to Savage River Road and the general area out in the pan handle. If we're able to get out at a decent hour this should be a right proper riding day.

Potentially Rainy Day Ride With Bruce

This ride took place on 'Saturday October 26th, 2019'

We had hoped this would be a multi-day ride but circumstances have conspired to turn it into a day ride. Thinking of not venturing out too far.

Michaux State Forest Gravel Roads Ride

This ride took place on 'Saturday June 15th, 2019'

A new rider is planning on joining us on a ride up to the gravel roads of Michaux State Forest. The plan is to meet at the Sheetz in Frederick at 11AM on Saturday (best laid plans of mice and men) and then head up to the Southernmost entrance to Michaux. I'll work on the ride plan over the next day or so.

Southern Maryland Tree Tunnel Ride

This ride took place on 'Sunday April 21st, 2019'

The plan is to head South to one of Duncan's favorite roads in Maryland which this time of year should be turning into a bright green tree tunnel. I'm not sure this is the right road though. I thought it was to the East of 301, not the West. Strangely, I don't have it listed anywhere in the maps so I'm not sure if there's a database bug or maybe we just never tagged it?

Saturday Cottage Ride

This ride took place on 'Saturday March 30th, 2019'

It's been almost three months since we've ridden but I also need to check up on the Virginia Cottage so the thought is to combine a ride with a trip there.

Another North George Washington National Forest Gravel Roads Ride

This ride took place on 'Sunday October 7th, 2018'

Let's head back out to the Northernmost section of the George Washington National Forest and see if we can't find some more gravel roads to explore. There were a number that we saw off of 48 as we were coming back before it merged with 55. Maybe we can try to get an earlier start?

George Washington Forest Service Roads Ride

This ride took place on 'Saturday September 29th, 2018'

There are some forest service roads listed in the US forest service road database that we ve talked about exploring. I don t know what shape these roads are in. The bikes in the mix will determine how far we go. if it gets too rough for any member of the ride we ll all turn around. There are plenty of roads to explore.

Kinsale Va and Points NW Saturday DR Ride

This ride took place on 'Saturday August 18th, 2018'

We're getting a late start. The plan is to stop by the cottage in Kinsale to take a look at it and then head towards 211. Plans are fluid because of pending inclement weather. The plan is for a mix of slab, pavement, and gravel. If all goes well it'll be a 350+ mile day.

So it was supposed to be a Forest Service Roads Ride

This ride took place on 'Sunday July 29th, 2018'

Pondering a ride to forest services roads on the far side of 81. Unfortunately, due to a rear wheel bearing failure on Duncan's DR650 this turned into a street ride.
