I swear…it followed me home…

There’s been a new addition to the family just a week ago:

Suzuki DR650…2008…33K miles on the odometer.  Doesn’t look like much…but previous owner farkled it really good. I’ll put up a post down the road on what all comes on her.  Prior owner was an older lady who took very good care of this bike.  Like me, it also has been to Alaska…and parts of Canada…and a tour of Nova Scotia…among other places.

Helinox Chair Zero review (and comparison to Chair One)

Helinox has a new chair out called the Chair Zero, which is supposed to be their lightest chair and very similar to their model known as the Chair One. I’m a big fan of Helinox products so I purchased it and decided to do a comparison with my current Chair One. I only need one travel chair and had to figure out which one to keep.

Of course, in my typical style, this turned into a very in-depth review of the products. So you understand how these two chairs fit with me, I’m about 5’10” and 210 pounds. Also, my wife says I’m handsome and my dogs love me, especially at dinner time….just in case that’s also need to know info.

New beginnings?

The website, once again, has been rebuilt.  It’s been a heck of a headache trying to salvage postings and pictures after my previous host hosed my website, somehow managed to corrupt every one of my completed backups and much was lost.  Oh well, what does one do in circumstances like this…just move forward, and start anew!

Now on a new RELIABLE host, I’m hoping that these types of problems are far behind.

I plan to detail many more of the future motorcycle adventures here, along with some insights and thoughts as time allows.  So hold on…new journeys are coming.


Updates continue…

Massive change to the Asphalt Journey website here upcoming.  New domain provider, server space, and a complete update of the functionality and design to make it easier to navigate and view.

As of tonight, all of the images for the Alaska trip postings have been restored. Will continue to go back further in time to continue updating lost photos.

Website changes are still pending so check back often!
