Vintage voyagers

We dusted off, gassed up, and rolled out the old Bonnie’s for a nice Saturday afternoon ride up north. Leaves are emerging as spring temperatures rise and the sun shines.

St Mary’s Road

April Days

We managed a nice 100 mile jaunt up through a quiet Lake County this afternoon. Temperatures touching 60 and deciduous foliage staring to emerge. Getting a better hand of the helmet camera. Will post a video later this week after editing…

Lake Geneva

Wisconsin Roads

Some fresh air was thoroughly enjoyed today with a splendid outing around Lake Geneva. Blue skies with a few scudding clouds driven by stiff winds. We stopped in at Yerkes Observatory near Williams Bay. Still getting to grips with the “GoPro”.

On The Road

Hour of recommended fresh air

– in these days of shut-in requirements a quick ride can give you the mental therapy and burst of fresh air to keep you sane.

Room & Board

Home Decor

– we’re heading into the first week of stay-at-home so let’s enjoy some more examples of storage of motorcycles in living quarters. What we need is a cool city hipster loft with separate ‘man-shed’ floor.

Van Life


– today Illinois called for its population to undertake the more severe form of social distancing by keeping indoors… well here’s one solution.

Mirror Mirror


Photography is like a mirror looking rearward. A view of where you’ve just come from. A recollection or memory of the road previously travelled with experiences to allow the way ahead to be navigated.

Evening Shadow

– I needed to partake is some social distancing after work. So with the sun setting across the Skokie Lagoons I had a spirited run up north. I just love that Tiger!

Vanishing Point

Canny weather the day.

A promise of temperatures in the sixties had the two new Triumphs out and about. I played with the helmet camera too to memorialize Deans first proper outing on the Street Scrambler. A fine looking machine there! Clocks changed this weekend and spring is truly around the corner.

First Ride of the Year

Groundhog Day | temperatures reached the low fifties today with a blue sky overhead. Even though there were patches of snow around it was decided to take the Tiger out for a ride nonetheless . The roads were particularly quiet and a good breakfast was eaten at Emily’s Diner in Zion.

The Blues

Pickup | More guitar tomfoolery with a Triumph logo emblazoned across the pick guard.

Under the palm

Winter | About this time in Chicago ones mind wanders to the warmer days sometime in the distant future. Under a blue sky sittin’ on a bobbed Bonnie you need to wear a black exposing armfuls of tattoos. A beard, yes you need to grow a beard.

Curves Ahead

Continuing Fine Weather | with another atypically warm day in late December I was able to visit some job sites on the Tiger. I could zoom up and down Forest Way Drive along the Skokie Lagoons.
