Weekend View Of San Francisco on Instagram

As Melinda and I took some time off this weekend since we work most weekends and decided to explore San Francisco. The weather was great and we went on a walk around Bernal Heights Summit, then brunch at Precita Park Cafe. Then we went to Dolores Park for a look at the new park since it has been re-open. After Dolores Park, we rode the scoots to Embarcadero Street where we stopped by Pier 27 and the Ferry Building. The weather was great and we enjoyed some much needed time outdoors.

Take a look at our trip via instagram.

This is where my motorcycle journey began. In the early 1980s when I was a kid and my dad @willieesutton and mom @gwensutton would go on moto adventures together in NC. My dad taught me how to ride on this Honda 750 where we rode to work. I remember it took me a couple of tries and I was hooked.

Looking at this photo gives me joy and pride. Also grateful that my dad taught me how to ride! Appreciate it pops! Iโ€™m not so sure what riding gear they had in the 80s but it looks like @converse was in style and it was clearly summer time ๐Ÿ˜‚. And my mom on the back smiling. YOLO. That where I get it from.

I had uncles who rode too. My mom also got her license and her own bike too a few years later. One of my sisters @janetysutton has her own bike too and several of my cousins ride. It runs in the family ๐Ÿ˜Ž.

Thinking back to my childhood to now unfortunately I didnโ€™t see a lot of motorcycle riders like my family . Especially from early 90s to 2000s. As I got older I purchased a bike and was advise to sell it. The stereotype of what a motorcycle riders looked like changed and the perceptions of fear still runs in our society and culture around safety.
Today Iโ€™m glad to see the culture of the motorcycle world changing and to be part of that change. I owe that to my parents. โค๏ธ
The adventure awaits, solo or together, two up or side by side. Itโ€™s ok . Just enjoy the ride!

So... itโ€™s winter. But where are we off to for our next adventure?
Itโ€™s hard to believe this was just last weekend. It feels like a month ago.
LA was on the list to ride to in 2020 for the original vacation trip to ride with @iamcaferacer . If that happens now at least weโ€™ll both be on @triumphamerica ๐Ÿ˜Ž.
Only a small window left. Thanksgiving weekend or first or second week of December depending on the world, work and weather aka (www) ๐Ÿ˜Ž.
Thanks @revit_official for the gear keeping me safe and warm!

Stay safe, healthy and sane humans!

What confidence, the struggle and anxiety sounds like. Last weekend I was doing what I never thought I would do. Take a 1200 scrambler ๐Ÿ up 5k altitude through a series curves aka twisties on a dirt road alone. This was way different than when @changecatalysts and I road two 250s ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ up 14k altitude in Hawaii mostly dirt. That was actually easier than riding the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE in #tituscanyon . Still I made it and a week later the world seems to be in a better place. At least for today.
I didnโ€™t realize how much I talked to myself until this video. ๐Ÿ˜‚.
Also the heavy breathing at the end was a combination of an anxiety attack and not breathing the right way. I was told by the Dr to take long exhales and short inhales. I was going up in altitude and running out of breath. I stopped here for about 20min. Caught my breath, water, had a snack, ๐Ÿšฝ #1, and then started downhill after a curve or two . Adventure riding alone or solo having self awareness of when to take a break is ๐Ÿ”‘. Also like life, you keep moving forward. Stay safe, healthy and sane humans!
One twistie at a time ๐Ÿ˜‚

Made it home but stopping here along the coastline pausing for a moment to enjoy the sound of the ocean was the icing of therapy for my trip. Especially before the anxiety of tonight and tomorrow. Reminder make time to do what you must to keep yourself sane!

When the motorcycle universe serendipitously arranged a meetup. Today while leaving Death Valley, I stopped on the side of the road for a photo for the gram, water & a #1. Right when I was about to leave I see Tim ride by! Tim aka @fta_adventures is a big inspiration for a lot my motorcycle adventures. His YouTube videos on camping, long rides and doing @ridebdr opened a whole new world to me. Tim has also been very real about riding , anxiety and life. Another ++.
Last year we met offline at @excelsiorcoffeesf in SF when he left for his visit all the national parkโ€™s in America tour. Amazing how much has changed in a year.
Funny we both had a feeling we might or might not see each other as I saw Tim was in PCH via IG a couple of days ago and he saw that I was in Titus Canyon and he was headed to Death Valley.
This unexpected meetup just made my trip.
Great to see you Tim and safe travels. Until next time!

๐ŸŽฅ When I first learned about Titus Canyon road I think it was on IG. The photos looked amazing. 30 miles of dirt, hills , twisties and inclines. Then @changecatalysts and I saw several IG friends ride through it as part of @ridebdr #cabdr or just for fun like @bendalltherules @fortheloveofknobs @freespiritpixie .
Before #covid_19 and my bike issues earlier this year Melinda and I were talking about doing the CABDR south which includes Titus Canyon but on smaller bikes than the 803 Ducati Scramblers. As you know, soo much has changed in 2020 .
So here we are the the last weekend of before the Election and a sense of nervousness around the world. I two week enjoying a new bigger motorbike Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE and I took off for an adventure to Death Valley and Titus Canyon on Thursday. Thereโ€™s something about Death Valley that I love riding here.
Titus Canyon lived up to its hype and while Iโ€™m still getting used to a 1200 vs an 803, I can look back and say I did it!
Also, Iโ€™m just not sure how the world is going to be next week or for a while and it felt like a now or never!
Melinda is home working on her book. Sheโ€™s missed on these solo adventures.
I hope you enjoy this 1min clip of an long day adventure and the sound of the deep @officinezard exhaust ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Reminder humans, tomorrow is not promised.
Stay safe, sane and healthy ๐Ÿ˜ท.
See my stories for updates.

In 2020, everyone is going through something. Many of us are covering whatโ€™s going on inside as we hop on video after video call. Or throughout our lives and work. We are hiding whatโ€™s beneath the surface.

You canโ€™t really see whatโ€™s going on beneath. Unless you ask. Unless you create a psychologically safe space for someone to be their authentic selves in all the messiness that is 2020.

I see so many managers and leaders going on through life right now as if we are still in the same normal that was before. As if their teams are still in their same lives. Iโ€™m guilty of it too sometimes, expecting the same productivity in a pandemic. And then I catch myself and remember to be kind. You never know what someone is going through.

We have to be kind to ourselves and our teams. We have to remember that everyone has something different in their lives, that real trauma can be happening behind the Zoom window. Behind the emotional mask, beneath the physical mask.

Remember to be kind. To yourself and to the people you encounter in person and via Zoom. We are in this together. โค๏ธ

One day at a time humans in 2020! I know itโ€™s hard mentally with everything going on but if you can take a moment to mentally escape the wildness of this year and the uncertainty that lies ahead. Please do it.

๐ŸŽฅ #video / twisties practice on the Triumph Scrambler 1200. First time in my life Iโ€™ve owed a bike bigger than a 900. My dad taught me how to ride as a kid on his Honda 750. In my early 20s I had a Yamaha 900. In 2014 I rode a Ducati Monster 800 for about 2yrs , then there was the Ducati scrambler 803. Last winter I rode a Harley 1200 (rented)(only bike available) when @changecatalysts & I were vacationing in Hawaii.
So far so good on the @triumphamerica 1200. Iโ€™m not used to being on my toes at stop lights but in everything will be either modded and/or my skills approved ๐Ÿ˜Ž or both. Hope everyone is well and safe.
Also loving this @revit_official Ridge GTX jacket! Perfect style to match the bike.
Happy to be back riding before it turns too cold to add a bunch of layers to keep riding ๐Ÿ˜‚

Taking a moment for a little PDA and gratitude with @changecatalysts after trading in my Ducati scrambler yesterday for Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE. Melinda and I purchased our Ducati scramblers at the same time in 2018 and after many mods and about 10k more miles it was time for a change. Sometimes while posting moto photos, Iโ€™m like I know some people are like itโ€™s just a bike. But for motorcycle riders we know. Itโ€™s not just a bike. Itโ€™s part of our identity, our culture and its therapeutic, fun, adventurous and exciting. The therapeutic part is what we all need dealing with life in 2020.
So here Melinda and I are. About to take off on my first ride home on the Triumph Scrambler. She knows the stress, me being impatient and how tight when been over the years. She also knows how happy I am right now and I know sheโ€™s happy for me. So before we take off. I do what we do every day. Pause for a moment of gratitude and love with a hug.
Thanks @motophotogirl @marinspeedshop for the ๐Ÿ“ธ.

New bike who this? With everything happening in 2020 thereโ€™s one thing I know. Tomorrow is not promised. I knew it was time to make a bike switch and some upgrades. No lie, I was kinda of scared to ride a bigger motorbike but after a couple of test rides, YouTube research I knew this Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE was just what I needed to explore new adventures for the rest of 2020 and beyond!
I have a short mods list and going to keep it simple. So can ride more and be done with mods.
Just enough to make it perfect for long touring!
Super grateful for the support of my awesome wife @changecatalysts . Also the the nice humans at @marinspeedshop @chukles416 @motophotogirl . Also to the moto moto community!
