When the adventure calls! Looking back at mods from the Bay Area Desmo Owners @_badoc Club annual Multi-Mayhem Yosemite Ride a couple of weekends ago. Going to make some adjustments for @changecatalysts and I upcoming trip post @techinclusion conference next week. Going to replace my custom windshield I made with a thinner lower one to remove the black line and buffering from the taller one. I’m going to add my 2nd @piaa_usa yellow fog light back and replace the bulb with an xtreme white one. I don’t play, when it comes to riding in the dark and desert. Been there, done that. And I’m going to mount my @rotopaxofficial gas can to my rear rack and put my @velomacchi bag on top. The @ridekriega OS platform bags straps works better when not trying to layer on top the rotopax. Plus the will move some of the weight to the rear vs the sides. Every trip is a learning lesson and I’ll get it right eventually. Plus preparing for our first #motocamping adventure! Live, love, travel! Have a great weekend humans!

#tbt #throwbackthursday to July 3, 2018 when Melinda @changecatalysts and I rode our Scramblers from San Francisco to LA and back on a 4 day trip. We had very little mods, we were moto packing newbies but still found the best roads and stopped for gram 😎. This road was awesome. It was in Mc Kittrick, a newly paved Hwy 58, Santa Maria Valley Hwy.🏍 .

Bubbles and a sunset. The combination I didn’t know I needed but loved! This is what happens when you travel, plan a route, decide to go off the route and adventure to the unexpected. Sometimes the unexpected is in another country or just 20min away from home. ...
