The other night I plugged in my heated gear and set off around Cape Cod looking for a dirt road to explore. I plodded around the south shore until I eventually found this gem. I returned the next day to play in the muck. I was wet, I was freezing, I was happy!
I hope you enjoy the mini adventure from a nice, warm spot.
…I’m going to go buy a hot tub!
Last weekend, Emily and I took our annual tour around New York, Connecticut, Western Massachusetts, and Vermont. Along the way we shot a lot of footage. After looking through all of it, I was reminded how different motorcycling is depending on where you’re riding. For example, riding in Vermont is much different from NYC.
Here, see for yourself!
A month ago I had an afternoon to kill, so I quickly packed up my camera equipment and rushed to the west end of Nantucket Island trying to capture the sunset on film. I hope you like it!
I’m still really scared of riding through sand! I chickened out, came off the throttle, and got bogged down. Funny enough, it happened 20 feet from where I crashed a few weeks prior. The weather is getting colder up here in New England, so rediscovering this little clip sent me back to warm, warm July!
Ever since I had my first crash, I’m unable to keep my motorcycle on two wheels! Here’s an edit from my last solo ride around Nantucket Island.
Ten years! I made it ten years without ever coming off a motorcycle. I feel like Ewan McGregor in Long Way Round.
Took my GS around Nantucket Island tonight. You can see the commercial fishing boats on the horizon. What a great ride!
I was tired of my left boot getting covered in oil, so I went to work repairing the oil leak in my friend’s parent’s driveway. By the time I finished the rain had come and the sun had set!
Here is Episode Four of Here’s Dave, the web series documenting my travels around the United States. In this episode I meet John and Candall, two individuals who helped to define my trip. John’s unfettered kindness helped get my motorcycle back on the road, and Candall’s unique view of the world still resonates with me today. I hope you enjoy this installment and please be sure to let me know what you think!
Here’s a time lapse of some baby birds being fed by their mother. Maybe I cried, maybe I didn’t.
