Back in the Saddle

The Cracow trip described in the previous post wasn’t exactly a sightseeing trip from the get-go. The real purpose of the trip was, in fact, to check out a motorcycle I had found online and considered buying. The owner of the motorcycle had said that he will be available in the late afternoon, giving us a better…

Mietków Moto Sunday

I took a short 120km trip to and around a nearby water reservoir in Mietków. You might remember it from an earlier post when I did some kayaking there (LINK) over the summer. At this time it’s barely warm enough to ride around it, but it seems everyone had a similar idea of getting out…

I don’t know what I was expecting range-wise out of my Funmoto Honda FMX, but I was just a little disappointed when I learned of my actual mileage per tank of gas. FMX has an 11liter fuel tank, 3 of which are saved for the reserve, that little fuel valve that I once forgot to turn back…

My Funmoto

Somewhere between not knowing what type of a motorcycle I wanted and seeing my savings account actually have some money in it I wondered if a two-wheeler of my own…

My Motorcycle Conundrum

I’ve decided to get a motorcycle for the 2013 riding season. I never had my own ride and pretty much the only motorcycle I’ve ridden in my life has been my father’s ’94 Honda XR250 seen below. But that Honda is gone now and time has come for me to get two-wheels of my own.…
