2011: The Final Numbers


The blog is now a year old. I started it with the intention of recording our rides and it grew from there. The numbers from December 31, 2011:

  • 197 posts
  • 12,502 views
  • 88 followers

I also managed to achieve my two blog goals, Post A Week and participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge.

My other big goal was to surpass mileage ridden in 2010. I didn’t keep a log that year but we estimate the total to be somewhere between 5,000-6,000. I have 79 rides recorded for 2011 for a total of 12,261 miles!

Happy New Year, and thank you for visiting, whether you’re a first time visitor or a regular follower. Very much looking forward to another year of riding adventures 🙂

06/01/11 Home Again


We are home again after a five day road trip. 1730 miles, six bikes, roads in six states, and over 550 pictures. Tomorrow I’m planning to catch up on email and blog subscriptions, and start sorting thru the photos for future posts. For a number of reasons I’ve decided to give up the Post A Day 2011 Challenge, the main reason is that it will free up time for me to take care of other things.

This was my longest motorcycle trip in both time and distance. New Zoom definitely passed the comfort test:  absolutely no pain or discomfort at all. It was a fantastic trip but I’m also glad to be home and have no doubt that I’ll sleep well tonight.
