Snow Tiger

Mountain Valley

– a perfect place for the elusive alpine feline bike. Wide glacial alluvial plains between craggy snow class spires. What a journey that would be.

Early Light

Morning Dust

– tearing off into the high desert trail. There’s nothing like riding under the fresh early morning light. Especially if the destination is some wilderness backwater.

Throttle Grip

WI Route 42

– quality light from the west as the sun sank over the Dairyland. The road ahead always beckons.

Doors of Perception

– an overnight trip to the northern parts of Door County was undertaken. Cool but nice clear light on the way up last evening with a deep blue lake on the right and the occasional sunset illuminated barn. Camped on the beach and returned back along the Green Bay side of the peninsula. A nice 560 mile leg stretch.

Get your kicks…

Rust on Route 66

– we’re now traveling through Missouri along the old cross country driving road. Occasionally an old American car peeps out from some weeds.

Desert Sunset

Sand as far as the Horizon

Moody Moto

Puddles & Cooling Tower

– Urban peril in the form of a repurposed Tiger parked in an Eastend industrial yard under a gloomy sky. Jerry can strapped to the tank and bug-eye headlights create the appearance of an ‘every-day-carry’ tool.

New Horizons

Panorama

– like this fella parked with his white Tiger on a Kentucky overlook we need to look out to distant possibilities to broaden our experiences.

It’s getting to be the time of year to start thinking of destinations, and hence experiences, further afield.

Green on Green

Emerald

Of trunk and branch

Tree of Life

– pre-unit Bonnie that has been tastefully fettled for action along a rural trail. Looks like a proper bike.

Shangri-La

Mountain Tigers

– the gravel road hugging the rugged Spiti Valley in the north of India where is touches the Himalaya. Boy; to be wheelin’ along this dirt road!

Got2Go

RTW Tiger

– moto traveller Lea Rieck gets her gas tank refilled somewhere up the Karakoram. Her sturdy Tiger clocked 90k km on her circumnavigation.

Sno-Cat

Tracked Mini Cooper

– an inventive sort has superbly winterized their Issigonis marvel. Bright orange in the whiteness of fresh snow. I need tracks like this for our Mini to navigate the alley.

Of Mountains & Glaciers

Snow & Ice

– some Triumph Bonneville owner taking his steed over a wintry mountain pass. We’re heading into minus degrees Fahrenheit windchills for the next few days so a balmy alpine col wouldn’t be too bad…

Frozen Lands

Ski-Doo

– found on the InterWeb here is a forlorn machine hiding in the dusty background of a barn. It looks like something used to effect in a James Bond film during a ski chase scene. The bullet nose is inspired!
