Thumb TW200 --From California to British Columbia...

Last summer I embarked on a journey from the Central California mountains to British Columbia, CAN. The plan was to ride all secondary/backroads from here north and back. And thats exactly what we did; my riding buddy on a BMW 1200 GS and me on a 1990 Yamaha TW200, both ends of the adventure touring spectrum... There was no planning for this trip, other than prep work a few days from departure, destinations were chosen on the fly. I am not actually writing a ride report on the website, but I'd like to inform you all of a blog I've recently started, outlining the trip, beginning to end.

Its called The Second Hand Mule.
Check it out, if you are so inclined. I am tempted to include more in this post, however, most info can be found if you choose to follow the link...

I enjoyed reading your first trip report. The blog is hard to read with the background image there. Anyway we can convince you to change that for us old timers with bad eyes?

Thanks for the praise, folks. I modified the background, much simpler now, so it should be easier to read. I should be getting back to writing soon. School just began again, however, and I'm currently down with strep throat. So one could say that my creative juices just aren't flowing. I'll try to keep it interesting...
