Every Once In a While

I love the winter but of course I love riding motorcycles well yesterday was one of those rare days. There were forecasts in the high 40’s and no rain so we set up a ride. Well it rained a lot the night before and though it was in the mid-30’s when I left my house in NYC it was in the mid-20’s in central New Jersey where we started the ride from. And though it wasn’t raining at the time the roads were were wet and it was cold and damp. Oh and did I mention ice on the side of the road? Yes ice and motorcycles do not play well together.

We did some sloppy twisty roads until we found some dirt. One thing that was cool were the amount of turkey vultures we saw perched. We took some pics of them but I really didn’t get any good ones, because my lens was dirty. I made a mount for Canon SD800 for my handlebar so I could take action shots and movies. The with a bit of moisture the lens got wet and dirty. Plus the mount doesn’t seem to isolate the vibrations enough so most of those pics were blurry. After we discussed who the vultures were waiting for we headed down to some good NJ dirt, sand and mud. Hit some old trails we knew and found some new ones we didn’t know of. One had a big log across it at the end and we made it through and over them. The worst part is there was clearly a sign on the log that said registered vehicles were permitted to ride the trails, but they still put a roadblock up.

We were around the Assunpink reservoir, got to love that name :D One of my friends rode his bike out to the end of the dock and though you can’ tell the water is not water but ice.

Oh since this is vegan motorcyclist I guess I should add some vegan content. And to top off a good long day of riding my friend Rob and I ended the day at Foodswings where I had buffalo wings and mac and cheese and he had a philly cheesesteak. He is not a vegan or a vegetarian but totally loved it.
What a great way to spend an early January day.

    I just want to say that as a new motorcyclist (scooterist?) and a strict vegetarian, the information on the “gear” section of your blog has been a godsend to me. Your blog doesn’t seem to have been updated for a while, and I don’t know if you check it anymore, but I just wanted to let you know that it has helped at least one person make both safe AND ethical choices when choosing gear, and I am very thankful for your efforts.

    I have neglected this blog and website but plan on redoing it over the next few months. Glad I was able to help someone.
