The joy of a child. And a Ducati 2-valve. Sound required. #ducati #900ss

Throwback: Sunday, @cykelk, the groms and I jet to NorCal. Permanently. So, I'm taking liberties to reminisce on my brief time here. A week after moving to SoCal, I realized @philgaimon was keeping a big secret from the world about the riding, even compared to places like Utah and Colombia. I'll miss our occasional sufferdates. I'll also miss the friends I've made, long-ass climbs, shocking topography, incredible training, prolific burgers, and cheap(er) rent. But, really rad opportunities await, ones with equally passionate people that make me as giddy as that first race victory and equally as humbled. Bonus: It's hard to scoff at Marin riding. Needless to say, I'll return to the radar next Wednesday after a prolonged absence, apologies for the seemingly ignored emails, texts, and messages. Much love! #adventuretraining #castelli

For fifteen months, this hellish stretch of asphalt, a 7% false flat appropriately nicknamed "Damnation Alley", has been my bleak therapist. Mostly she's yelled at me, told me I was slow, made me sweat, made me suffer, and made me cry. I don't think I've ever enjoyed my thrice-weekly meetings with Damnation, but her flagellation has a sharp, stabby point when it comes to forcing equilibrium. I'll miss her soon, that's certain, but I'd still rather never recline upon her chaise again, spilling my deepest feelings on her unforgiving countenance. #dxoone #dxomade

On weekdays, Daniel Wakefield Pasley is a humble photographer (see: @manualforspeed and @yonderjournal) of the seemingly mundane melded into off-the-cuff vicarious gold. On the weekends, he transforms into Thor, God of 'Cross Thunder, and father of two grizzpolar bears. And Vanagon pilot. #crossiscoming #tbt #adventuretraining

Why was my motorcycle cherry popping adventure a three-way with both a Kawasaki and a Ducati? My plan was to fly to San Jose, meet @schwinnchester, pick up the Duc, ride to Interbike via Yosemite and Death Valley, then ping back out to the coast and scream to Portland or Seattle before hightailing back to Utah. But, when I got to SJ, the shop that had been prepping the Duc was behind by a week. So I found a '98 Ninja ZXR on CL for $2000, bought it, and proceeded to learn to ride motorcycles. In Yosemite. After the show in Vegas, I headed back up the coast, went back to SJ, sold the Ninja for a $500 profit, and rode the Duc into the sunset. #tbt #adventuretraining

#tbt to learning to ride motorcycles during a solo 3200 mile, six-week jaunt up the west coast. On a Kawasaki Ninja 600RR. And a Ducati 900SS. My life was in that little tailbag. #adventuretraining
