My 2018 – A Google Photos Review

I’m a big fan of Google Photos. Even though I should probably be an Apple Photos person, given my Apple hardware usage, somehow Google Photos was first to the punch for me with cloud-based photo storage and it just stuck. I especially love how all my photos from my phone, computer, camera, and even sent…

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…

EICMA – Day 1 Impressions

For the past 3 years I have been fortunate to attend the EICMA motorcycle trade show with GOVECS, and this year marks my 4th event in a row. Four years isn’t much, considering my this is my boss’ 9th or 10th. But even to a noob like myself I can tell that EICMA is shrinking.…

Moto Sale

I sold my Transalp last week. Pictured here is my last photo of it, along with its new owner Jacek. I wasn’t gonna post anything about it, but my wife’s response to that photo was priceless. I messaged her the photo with a “SOLD” caption, and her reply was: “That guy doesn’t look like he knows…

Maramures & Barsana Monastery

A day after our swim in the Black Sea we knew that the inevitable end to our trip was coming. We had after all reached our destination which was the sea itself, and now we slowly rode closer towards Poland with every kilometer. We had planned around 3 more days of riding around Romania when…

Berca Mud Volcanoes

As gases erupt some 3,000 meters deep, clay and salty water are being pushed towards the surface creating small mud volcanoes. The mud is cold as it comes from Earth’s continental crust layers and as it dries out it creates the conical shape that can be seen on photos below. Due to high salt content…

Moto Romania

My vacation plan was fairly simple: not to have a plan at all. The idea was to pack up my Transalp and set out for a couple of weeks traveling wherever I wanted to, staying wherever the bike took me that day. It started out as a solo trip, but with only a couple of…

My Funmoto

And the winner of my motorcycle conundrum is… Honda FMX 650. Truth be told, I was thinking of giving up on the idea of motorcycle ownership altogether. 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…
