This is the third part of a series that is about the ride I took on my 2005 883 Low Harley Sportster ‘Effie’ from Kansas City to Novia Scotia and back. This was part of my vacation from 4 to 20 AUG 2006 SUN 6 AUG 06 The morning started at 7:30 AM as the earlier wake up call never came. It was as usual a great morning, cool with a few cars on the highway. Most of the time going across MS will be the small highways. The first stop is for Quitman County, I need this to match up with my Quitman AR city that I got last weekend for my ABCs. This will now make 108 points on the ABCs of Touring, last year I only got 100 points for the year. The ... read more

This is the second part of a series that is about the ride I took on my 2005 883 Low Harley Sportster 'Effie' from Kansas City to Novia Scotia and back. This was part of my vacation from 4 to 20 AUG 2006 Saturday 5 AUG 06 The morning was a late start again…. This is the story of my life lately. Previously even if I couldn’t get up and moving in the morning to make it to work, I could be up at the crack of dawn to start a motorcycle ride. But I am resigning myself to the vacation atmosphere and just whenever…It was a great ride out to Bakersfield MO (IBE #57). Again it was miles of shady lanes. A stop at the Bakersfield city limit sign to get the picture and just ... read more

This is the first part of a series thats about the ride I took on my 2005 883 Low Harley Sportster from Kansas City to Novia Scotia and back. This was part of my vacation from 4 to 20 AUG 2006 Friday 4 Aug 2006 August 4th I started my far east trip. I am planning to ride from Kansas city as far east as Canada to see both Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia . Working on HOG’s ABC’s of Touring the purpose of this trip is to collect the remaining 23 continental states, 3 Canada Provinces, a few HOG rallies and some other missing points. I am also working on the “I’ve Been Everywhere” challenge from our HOG group, using this trip to pick up some of the cities mentioned in Johnny Cash’s song ... read more

This is the continuing saga of my trips in 2006 on my 2005 883 LOW Harley Sportster. This trip was taken 28-30 July 2006. This was my last free weekend in the KC area until NOV probably. With all my longer trips there were multiple ABC points sitting in AR that I had not had a chance to get yet. Seems every weekend I was heading the other 3 directions and had not made it to AR at all this year. I had missed my little day trips down there. I really enjoy a weekend in AR as the roads are twisty, shady and great views are frequent. Next week when I head for the east coast, I will go through the east side of AR picking up a bunch of my ABC’s, but this weekend ... read more

This is a recap of my 3 day run from Kansas City to Cheyenne WY HOG rally with a detour to CO, NM, OK and southern KS. This was one of my ABC’s of Touring rides, where I am accumulating points toward HOG’s ABC’s of Touring challenge. It is my goal to get enough points in 2006 that I earn one of the top ten plaques. This was a solo trip just me and my 2005 883cc Harley Sportster ‘Effie’. The ride started after work on Thursday (20 July) heading west on I-70 the goal is to just get as far west as possible. Any miles I put on tonight gives me more time to play later. The weather was great heading out of KC, but it was HOT. I stopped at a Cracker Barrel, on ... read more

Leaving after work on 16 June and then returning home 7K miles later on 2 July concluded my ‘Far West’ vacation. The map attached to the blog is not precise, it give the general idea of my route. Below is a brief as it gets ride report… I dubbed this trip Far West many months ago when I planned it, but it is not actually the farthest west trip I ended up making, from 8 -12 JUN 06 I rode from KC to CA and back, but this trip was in my GPS as FW (Far West) so it continued to be called that. The Far West trip included 11 states, 5 Canada Provinces/Territories (I don’t know which ones are which), 5 HOG rallies, ump-teen National Parks/Forests/Memorials/Monuments. It was a solo trip with ‘Effie’ my 2005 ... read more

This was my 1st long trip for the year 2006. The weekends goal was to ride from Kansas City to Abilene TX, more exact the TX State HOG Rally, with a few side stops for other ABC points. Abilene TX is about 2 hours west of Ft Worth. My HOG group is also doing the “I’ve Been Everywhere tour” which uses the list of all 91 of the towns/states in Johnny Cash’s song. The HOG group challenged its members to find and take a picture of their bike by as many of the IBET locations as possible. Always up for a challenge I have plotted in those towns as they come up in my ABC routes. This is a solo trip on my 2005 883 Harley Sportster ‘Effie’. 19 May 2006, Friday I took a half ... read more

I have been on a very few rides with the Central Midwest HOG group of which I am a member, the ABC ride, Poor Boy dinner ride, one breakfast ride and the Toys for Tots ride. The weekend poker runs and many of the events seem to always fall on weekends that I had other trips planned so I could not attend. I made it a point to get to the Easter Egg ride. As a thank you to a couple guys that watch my house when I am out of town I invited them to be my guests for the ride. Darrel who went to the Toys for Tots ride with me jumped at the chance of coming out with HOG group again. Darrel rides a 1982 Yamaha Maxim. Mack was less eager and nervous ... read more

++Every year I write a Xmas letter that goes in the Xmas card. In DEC09 I found a bunch of the old letters and I thought I would post them here in this blog. Please notice in this the 2005 letter I say I can not win the ABCs of Touring because you couldn't hold a 5 day a week job and have time to win. Funny I would end up winning it for 2006 while holding a 5 day a week job. ++ Cindy’s Christmas Letter Hello to all. I hope this finds you all happy and in good health. I am doing good as I am in fine health and still find many things throughout the day that puts a smile on my face. Scout is doing fine. He has a full time job ... read more

++Every year I write a Xmas letter that goes in the Xmas card. In DEC09 I found a bunch of the old letters and I thought I would post them here in this blog.++ I hope this find everyone well and looking forward to great xmas! Another year is getting ready to be a memory. Time flies doesn’t it? The older I get the faster it seems to go. As I write this I am once again working in FL. The office refers to them as my ‘vacations’. Which is more correct then I would admit to them. J I really like working on the road instead of in the office. These trips let me travel (vacation) without the expense of transportation, hotels and food. I work hard during the week, but I play hard on ... read more
