Because Just Once Wasn’t Enough

Hello World!  I’m doing it again.  I’m going on another bikecation and I leave in about three weeks.  I loved Colorado so much last year that I’m going back there again but this time will be different.  This time….du, Du, DUMMMM……I’m taking friends. So two weeks in Colorado with  six bikes and a truck.  It’s … Continue reading

Well, I’m Home

I’m home.  Wednesday I rode about 200 miles from Norman, OK to Mckinney, TX and Friday I rode 237 Miles from McKinney, TX to My Garage.  My total mileage? 2384 miles.  I really wanted to hit the 2400 mile mark but I think I’m close enough.  So here are my wrap up thoughts. I had … Continue reading

Why is a Raven Like a Writing Desk?

Hi, I’m leaving soon

So on the 6th of July I’m leaving for a two week solo trip to Colorado.  I’m super exciting and a bit nervous.  After all, it will be my first long trip alone.  I’m sure there will be many blog posts to come regarding my adventure but this one is mostly about my itinerary.  The … Continue reading

Who is Sidecar Adventures?

I'm just a Girl with a 1975 BMW R90/6 rigged to a 2006 Ural Retro Sidecar and a 2002 BMW 1150GS rigged to a DMC Sidecar. This is the story of my life on the road, in the garage, in my kitchen, my closet and, on occasion, in my makeup collection. I'm a Femme with a wrench, you have been warned.
