Confluence Ride – 2/3/2019

Sometimes you just have to get away. The weather was half decent and I had an appointment with my motorcycle to get away. I rode up to the Missouri/Mississippi confluence. Its a decent length ride and has some gravel roads to play on. The sunset was perfect and I loved every second of it!

Heated Handgrips – 10/5/2018

In an effort to extend my motorcycle riding season, I had Flying Tiger install a set of heated hand grips. The cost of the grips plus installation was $300, but money well spent.

The button with the LO to HI is the controller for the different heat settings.

I can say without a doubt that it was worth every penny. Having warm hands makes a huge difference for comfort. If you like to ride but don’t like being cold, its worth it!

Riding North – 8/25/2018

I took another evening ride going north.

I ended up in the land between the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. I was going to ride north to a free bridge, but it got late much sooner than I expected. So I gook some cool night photography and headed home on the Golden Eagle Ferry to save time.

Moto Ride – 8/17/2018

Part of the joy of motorcycling for me is to be spontaneous. This means picking random roads to see where the go and stopping when you would continue in a car. Today’s ride had me out by Waterfall before I took a new road. I ended up in Pacific, Mo in an area I had been before. But I had never stopped at the overlook. So I parked at Jensen’s Point Overlook to hike up and check it out. Its just south of I-44 in Pacific, Mo on E. Osage Street. See map below.

Here are a few photos from the top. Its cool that you can see the river from the top.
