Selfie

Quayside

– a fun rear camera shot of the two of us on the harbor front. Lake Michigan stirring in a light odorous chop with a cooling air drifted over the freshwater to us.

Independence

Fourth Seven

Beacon for Shipping

Lighthouse Keeper

Nice summer ride up along the Lake into Wisconsin and a stop off at Kenosha Harbor. A still water stirred by the occasional fishing boat or pleasure craft. New (to me) Aerostich jacket worked admirably in the upper 70’s temperatures.

GS Hunter

Tiger Trail

At about the same time BMW was introducing the Gelände/Straße GS range Triumph was grasping a straws during its business death throes. One model that hinted of what was to come was a slightly modified 750 Tiger named the Trail. 21” front wheel, single seat, high pipe, off road gearing. You can nearly see the looks of latter model Tigers in its DNA. Growing up I always loved the look of the dirt oriented front fender.

Girl on a Bike

Another motorcycle blogger is Vanessa Ruck who enjoys extolling the virtues of two-wheel travel. Particularly with an adventure bike such as the impeccable Tiger.

What is one to do?

Ride. Ride!

Head down the road. Aim for the horizon. Take your wits, your sense of exploration and a heady dose of adventure to venture out into the yonder.

‘Orses

Mill Creek Hunt

– est. 1897 | one of the stops on this ride through an unseasonably cool June afternoon had us stop in at this old stable located along Hunt Club Road.

Layby

Via Volo

– the return leg of Saturday’s ride brought us back along the delightful Gilmer Road. A leafy road that winds through Lake Country passing horse farms and old railway lines; passes barns and crosses multiple county roads ready to explore.

US 12 & HWY’s 12 & 67

Old Roadhouse at the intersection

– one of our stops for a leg stretch was at this abandoned crossroads building. You can imagine hoarded of Harley Davidson bickered swarming around at this corner on a Sunday morning before roaring around the backroads then heading back to Milwaukee after a spin around the Moraine’s.

Wooded Valleys

My kinda hump day view…

.. wish I was on a gravel road through the Rockies with the occasional arboreal vista across blue layered slopes.

Bucolic

Evening Ride

We took the Triumph out for a sunset jaunt into Lake County. Long shadows across green fields and through leafy woodlands. This was one of the small gravel country roads that can be found off Hunt Club Road.

Blue Sky

Red Barn

Marvelous day on the road today. 250 miles on a route around the bottom of the Lake into Michigan on lanes lined with trees leafing out. Lilac fragrance wafted from farm hedges laden with bloom and rolling fields being watched over by soaring hawks. This old barn was seen in the small town of Eau Claire MI.

Cats Eyes

Most Illuminating

The Big Kitty got a pair of auxiliary lights affixed to it today. Added brightness down the road ahead and better conspicuousness in traffic. They are genuine Triumph accessories so once plugged into the bikes harness a switch, which until now wasn’t operational, gives easy control of the new lighting.

Arid Adventure

Someone has taken the road less traveled with their Tiger and accumulated layers of desert, otherwise known as experience. This image reminds me: I need to get some knobby tires ordered…

Rustic Road

Frame by Frame

Another video of yesterday’s smashing ride in America’s Dairyland. You’ll see the flooding left over from last weeks heavy rains.
