Triumph Bonneville Ride: Episode 1 - Close Encounters of the Amish Kind

I love my big scooter (Piaggio MP3 500) with automatic trans, but I've been wanting to ride a "real" motorcycle to see if I can shift like I used to when I had a Suzuki T500 back in grad school. Last Saturday, I rented a Triumph Bonneville at Country Road Scooter Rentals in Bird-in-Hand, PA and rode for over 4 hours in warm sunny Lancaster county.

Here is my first Episode, where I mount the bike at Country Road, shift for the first time and encounter the Amish at least 6 times. Sorry for the wind noise - I couldn't even hear the sweet sound of that classic British bike.

July Ride: Following the Sun

I'm sharing this 5 minute clip from my ride in Chester County following the sun on 7-13-13. It seems like it rained throughout June, and then the sun came out.

A Balmy 50° January Ride

I'm sharing this 5 minute clip from my ride on a balmy 50° January day. The leaves are gone this time. I wave to three other bikes out for an early morning joy ride. Learned how to add a music track in Youtube. Do you like it? Should I talk less or more?
