Another patch added to my vest.  I’m almost out of room.  Over the years I’ve added, removed and replaced various patches, keeping the ones that mean the most to me.

Anyone else have a motorcycle vest that they’re proud of?  I’ve spent quite a few years adding to mine.  Maybe in another post I’ll show the different patches on the front & rear and their significance to me.  Each patch brings back memories.  Kind of like going back through my motorcycle journal that I’ve keep over the years on my trips.  Lots of good memories.

Here’s a post from “Sturgis Chick“, a blog I’ve been following that I’d like share.  Take a look if you have a moment.  Maybe you’d like to follow her blog on WordPress.  It may be especially interesting for those of you who have “Adventure Bikes” and are “Adventure Riders”.  I’d like to be able to venture off of the paved roads, but my motorcycle just isn’t set up for that.  Sure looks fun though.

IMG_5548As I headed North in Utah, I had a feeling I was going to get wet.  I had to keep going though.  After spending an extra day in Arches National Park, I was running behind schedule on my way to Washington.

The last photo in this series is what happened when I waited too long to put on my rain suit.  I was on the side of the freeway, in the dark, with rain and wind. The sky opened up all at once.  I think I rode directly into a gust front.  I’m not sure how I didn’t get blown off the road.  The wind was so strong I had to stand close to the bike because it was  being pushed backwards.  I had to hold it still.  I was standing too close to the pipes when I was putting it on.  I’ve never ridden in so much rain and wind in my life.  As much as I love to ride, this one particular evening was not so fun.  I was on my way to a campground I had reserved but decided to get a hotel instead.

IMG_5546I may have gone a little overboard on this last motorcycle  trip.

My dresser drawers are already packed full, but I continue to buy more!

The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution – My New Patch

11Another patch added to my motorcycle vest.

I’m not one who owns lots of guns and preaches the 2nd amendment.  I do agree with it though.

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms from infringement.

A Few New Items For My Motorcycle Camping Trips

Posted in Bushtec, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Accessories, Motorcycle Camping, Motorcycle Cargo Trailer, Motorcycle Clothing, Motorcycle Rides, Motorcycle Trailer, Motorcycles with tags on September 10, 2013 by DRF

It seems like every time I plan another motorcycle camping trip, I find a few new items to take along. Some items need to be replaced as they wear out, and there’s always a few new things I’d like to try.

My next trip is in the planning stages, and I’ve already made a few purchases (Why should my next trip be any different that the last?).

I pull a small cargo trailer behind the motorcycle, so I have the luxury of taking quite a few extra things I wouldn’t normally have room for.

Here’s a few items I’ve purchased for my next adventure:

new camping items

– Big Agnes Insulated Air Core to put under the sleeping bag (I’m not getting any younger!).
– MSR Alpine 1.6L Stowaway Pot (replacing an old camp set).
– GSI Outdoors Plate, Bowl, Cup and Cutlery (replacing an old set).
– GSI Outdoors Stainless 6 Cup Percolator (replacing an old one).
– GSI Outdoors Java Press (I’ve never tried one of these. The reviews are positive and it seems easy to use).
– Thermarest Camp Pillow (Rolls up nice and small. My old one was several years old).
– Fixedblade Knife with Sheath and Fire Starter (Never have enough knives).
– LED Flashlight (Small and very bright).
– NALGENE 1 quart Water Bottle x 2 (trying not to use so many plastic throw-aways).
– Safety Whistle (just in case).
– Bear Spray (for tent camping in Yellowstone National Park).
– Pepper Spray (Small and can be attached to a belt or backpack).
– DryLite Towel (Compact and holds a lot of water).
– Waterproof Matches Holder (In case the lighter doesn’t work).
– Small Salt and Pepper Shaker (Very small design).
– Podsacs Stuff Sack (for dirty cloths).
– Hanes Men’s Thermal Pants (I could only find these in Red).
– Coghlan’s Camp shower (I’ve never tried this but the reviews are very positive).

Nothing extravagant, just some items to make the camping a little more enjoyable/comfortable/easier/safer… you get the idea.

These items were purchased at some of my favorite places for camping gear. Bass Pro Shops, Sportsman’s Warehouse, REI and Amazon.
