Catch up some crazy pics-

Catfish my nephew caught in the Catskills


Back roads to Montreal (from Catskills through these moutains)


Canada - Friend in Montreal I visited has quite the car collection and lifts installed in his garages. A new viper is his every day driver. I liked his white GT500, its his weekend car and he's done a ton of mods to it.  He also has a stock one with 21 miles on a lift that he said will never see the street, and he has a Z06 Vette that he said isn't much fun to drive compared to the other cars and he's about to sell it. I took a few phone pics




Vermond, NH, Maine - Ate at a lobster shack in the cool brisk ocean breeze upper Maine after visiting Montreal and motorcyling the beautiful mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire. Another check mark on my bucket list!

This was at Boothbay Harbor




This was a shack in town (Portland), suggested by our forum bud and he was spot-on!!!


Rhode Island-

I met KIRBY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I can't thank Brian and his lovely wife enough for the wonderful dinner/ride/hanging out


Geez I never knew Rhode Island was so incredible, I didn't see a dull spot anywhere.
 Quaint lighthouse, I hit the wrong parts (and not enough!) of US1 in Maine didn't see any


Ct- We rode to "Mystic Pizza"!  They exploained to me the movie plays over and over in there but no sound.


I need my pro cam for high night ISO and blur prevention. Talk about a non-stop butt burner....  Brain and the KiPass proven bike


NYC/NJ-  got to Atlantic City in the middle of the night after riding NYC. So far I'm up on these Casinos






Ona  scale of 1-10 of Casinos I've stayed at in Vegas, this one in NJ ranks about a 7.  Although i like the bathroom colors and stuff that matches


I stayed here an extra day but I'm rolling in the AM.  No clue where but it'll be towards mountains =)

You really got around. Holy crap!
The yellow car on the lift-Is it an updated Cobra? I can't quite tell. I love the Viper too.

Atlantic City to NC mountains (700+) miles today.  There were one or two special friends I missed seeing on the way up to Canada!

He sure did meet Kirby and he also met Mr. Elkhoof besides! A banner day. It was a big day for Kirby too- for the very first time, he rode out of state and got to visit Mystic Pizza. My. Elkhoof has been all across the country via motorcycle and even a short ride on a tow truck but Kirby just is not well traveled.

I think we have a photo of Steve and Kirby around here somewhere but I can't find it at the moment. Will post it later when I do find it.

Yeah I can't stress how vivid and alive that Kirby is. And when THREE (yes three) FOBs were having their pic taken in the restaurant I could've sworn I heard Kirby out on the bike screaming MERCYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY  :D

Here's a few more pics. After the trip I went down to Naples for a few days...forgot to post up last few BS snapshots!

What do I like so much about BAT CAVE NC???


I like the fact all the locals roads rock without such as the tail of dragon hosts as of past couple of years (hardley-ablesons, car clubs, squids, tourists, etc)


The low-carb NC apples are great


Dunno wtf this thing was.


And last day in the mountains I saw the mountains and the sea in the same day, hello Tybee Island GA/Atlantic Ocean


12 hours in the saddle - and the sun set in the low country as I moved on past the beach and towards a friends house =)

Glad to hear you are back and all is OK Steve. I was wondering where you were 'cause I would have thought you would have made it home much earlier.

Thanks and thanks again for the Rhode Island/Mystic, CT!  Yeah I didn't post up much from Naples, was busy visiting.  Did you or your wife post up the pics somewhere and i missed it by chance?  The 3 FOB pic, I need to remember all that good pow-ah in one spot on a table!

Hey, we had a great time and thank you for giving a call on the way by and taking the time out of your traveling.

Yep, I have that photo and several others. The photo of all the transponders has some kind of a smoky haze imprinted on it- maybe like a halo.  ;D Will post a couple tomorrow and send all of the via e-mail.

Opps....   By the way, send me your e-mail address and I can send you the rest (only a couple of photos though).

Lots 'o Fobs:



Of course after the photo we had to figure out which fob belonged to who.

Steve meets Kirby:
