Two Wheels Good

Motoblot | The annual pilgrimage to Chicago’s main open air motorcycle gathering was had today. Weather cooperated after stormy forecasts. Plenty to look at amongst the offering. The KZ900 in sparkly brown and oranges was a notable example; as was a display of the Danish in-line 4 workpony’s Nimbus.

It’s a clean machine

The View from the Bridge | Another snapshot from a fortnight ago. Waiting for the gang to fill up at the Mount Carroll gas station. I always thought the windscreen had cat ears atop it…

Beret | With her serious demeanor looking directly at the camera and his assuredness wearing the cloth cap beret squarely on his head, this couple look as if they’re itching for adventure on the open road.

Le Corbeau elle est morte!

Totaled | A sad day in GeordieBiker-ville. The insurance evaluation guy came by today and, after an exhaustive hour looking at the damage, wrote her off. Damages far exceed the value. Simple accounting with far reaching implications. The bike of my dreams was taken away in the back of a van.

Motorcycle Wheels on a Gravel Road

Tiger Trail | the days riding around north east Illinois was enlightening. A good 150 miles of rural gravel roads crisscrossing Jo Daviess County. I learned to finally use the back brake on the loose surface; and to power through the looser gravel. The new tires performed exceptionally. The day (and weekend) were cut short… but we’ll get into that tomorrow…

Chicago & Main

Stop Light Intersection | Whilst commuting home there was an everyday street view in Evanston that I had to capture. A slightly motion blurred Triumph Speed Triple became the central focus as others made their way about town.
