"It is never crowded along the extra mile" ~ Wayne Dyer.  

This post is for motorcycle enthusiast from here and around the world to showcase their machines and trips or just plainly what you like.  Please send me (bobgriego@att.net) your name, photographer, and location of the picture.

Let's see what turns up!



My brother Leo's Triumph on his trip from Missoula, Montana to Barstow, California in the late sixties.  He had just returned from Vietnam so his Army gear is strapped on his bike.  
He really travelled light by today's standards.


My Yamaha 305cc in 1968 where I worked as a Laborer in Sequoia National Park - loved that bike.


New friends, Doug and Sarah Greer, that I met in Lordsburg, New Mexico.  They rode some 6,200 miles from Glasgow, Kentucky out to California and back visiting National Parks along the way, including Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks where we met again in Three Rivers, California.  Doug rides a Honda CB500X and Sarah a Ducati Scrambler.


My new friend, Scott Masters on a 9 day, 1,900 mile ride in Springerville, Arizona.  
Owns Scott's Fly Shoppe in Spanish Fork, UT and wants to teach me fly fishing.

My new friend, Danny Kamphaus from Kansas City joins me for lunch at the River View in Three Rivers, California.  
Well over 5,000 miles!
