  1. Campsite review: Uvas Canyon County Park
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Location: 8515 Croy Road Morgan Hill, CA 95037 Date of visit: September 3-4, 2010 Weather: A bit warm but overall very nice. It was in the mid-80s when we arrived at the park around 5pm, but the sites are quite...
  2. August progress report
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Wow, in one week, it'll have been a year since my back injury. It's weird how fast that year went by, given that it pretty much put my life on hold. What's Going On? Things are generally going really really...
  3. Wrenching on the Ninja
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Yesterday, my Sport-Touring.net buddy Andrew came over to help me work on the Ninja. By "help me", of course, I mean "do all the actual work" since I still can't really pick anything up that's heavier than a torque wrench....
  4. Welcome, bike #8!
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Say hi to the newest member of our garage, now the second bike that doesn't actually belong to us: Glen and Julie's 2000 Ninja 250! They're loaning me the bike for a while in exchange for doing some light maintenance...
  5. Campsite review: Anthony Chabot Regional Park
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Location: 9999 Redwood Road Castro Valley, CA 94546 Date of visit: July 16-17, 2010 Weather: Very pleasant. I was worried that it was going to be East Bay Hot, but the elevation and eucalyptus trees made it pretty comfortable. It...
  6. July progress report
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Insert pithy opening comment here. No, really, go ahead. I'm tired and too lazy to come up with one myself. :D What's Going On? Improvement continues, which is both good and bad...let me explain. It's good for obvious reasons. The...
  7. Sorry, Kin.
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Forgive the foray into something incredibly off-topic for me, but there's nowhere else really to write it. Today, Microsoft discontinued the Kin phone after 48 days on the market. I have very mixed feelings about this. On the one hand,...
  8. Campsite review: Half Moon Bay State Beach
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Recommended: YES Location: 95 Kelly Avenue Half Moon Bay, CA 94019 Date of visit: June 18-29, 2010 Weather: Typical late spring on the coast -- a bit foggy and chilly. The wind picked up overnight but it was pleasant around...
  9. June progress report
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Woah, it's June! How'd that happen? What's Going On? At the risk of jinxing myself, I've had Holy Crap Improvement since May. I wouldn't go so far as to say "night and day" but I can definitely go with "night...
  10. May progress report
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Hi peeps! You get the progress report a little early this month; I might start doing twice-monthly. I know, the excitement never ends. Never, ever, ends. What's Going On? My pain level hasn't changed since the April progress report. I...
  11. April progress report
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures First off, can I just say how happy I am that it's pouring down raining again? Normally it doesn't rain like this in mid-April here in the Bay Area, but I'm loving it this year. It's much easier to accept...
  12. March progress report
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Hey look, another month. Last we left your intrepid motorcyclist/hockey player, things weren't going so well. Fortunately life has improved a titch since then, so here's your update. What's Going On? Most of the nerve pain I had last month...
  13. Mid-February progress report
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Well, bad news, kiddos. We're back to another bad phase in the back recovery. I feel like all I post is negative stuff but I want to keep documenting this. Plus, Caralee wanted more details, and since Caralee is my...
  14. February progress report
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Hi kids, and welcome to my monthly fascinating progress report. I realize these are boring as heck and not awesome ride reports from Utah or Australia or whatever, but it does help me to look back and see improvement from...
  15. 13-mile ride on the XT
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures See, I told you it wouldn't be long before I had a motorcycle update. Ye of little faith. Today was warm and sunny (ha ha, East Coasters) and my back was feeling decent, so Peter and I decided to go...
  16. January progress report
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures I've made Real Actual Progress during the month of December, so this update will be a bit more positive. ;) Motorcycles No update on the motorcycles; I haven't ridden since early December. I was hoping to ride this week sometime...
  17. December progress report
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures Well, it's been a month since I last posted and I'm starting to feel like I don't make any actual progress on anything that I enjoy doing. So I'm going to do monthly status updates so that I can look...
  18. Yeah, still not riding.
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures This is my excuse: Remember that back injury I talked about in September? Turns out it's a ruptured disc. Well, I feel better about being a whiny little brat about it now. I went in to see the doc today...
  19. RIP Buell
    From BluepoofBikes Motorcycle Adventures I find this news incredibly sad. I don't know anything about Buell's finances, or the politics of how it was assimilated into -- and ultimately killed by -- Harley-Davidson, but it's never a good thing for the sport when a...
