My internal clock would have me sleeping until noon every day if I let it. When I’m on a motorcycle trip, I set an alarm every morning, and I always find myself waking up before the buzzer. I do love to ride.
This morning, I peek out the window to see grey skies, as I expected — but no rain! That’s very good news. I dress quickly, then head to the lobby for some free hot grub. Will I ever get tired of the breakfast that’s included with my stay at the BEST WESTERN? I don’t think so. Especially not when it’s free.Read
As if riding a motorcycle isn’t enough of an adrenaline rush, waking up in Times Square ready to ride a motorcycle is enough to get the blood pumping quickly. I slept like a rock in my comfortable room at BEST WESTERN PLUS President Hotel at Times Square, Jack and Jackie Kennedy keeping watch over me all night long. I was concerned that the street noise from busy 48th Street below my fourth floor window might keep me awake, but the room was as quiet and serene as a room in the country, a true haven in the middle of the most populous city in the United States.Read

I have just flown across the country from my home in California to New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport. I lined up for a taxi to Queens Village to pick up a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic at EagleRider Rentals. Vinnie from EagleRider sped me through the signup process, and together we inspected the 2011 Touring motorcycle. A few bumps and scrapes and 20,000+ miles on the odometer, but the Electra Glide looked good and ready to go. I moved my gear from my suitcase to the saddlebags and TourPak, and paid attention as Vinnie ran through a checklist of operating instructions for the bike. I’ve put a lot of miles on Electra Glides in the past, but I still listened intently as Vinnie ticked off the items on the list. I used the time to focus on riding, as the most challenging part of the whole ride was probably these first few miles.Read
It is not my intention to dissuade anyone our age from going to any particular travel destination, but my time on the road has left me with several impressions that might serve to alert others to possible danger. Well, not so much danger itself, but situations that might prove uncomfortable for some.
The Astronomical Clock in Prague, Czech Republic, is a magnificent attraction. Originally installed in 1410, it is the oldest working clock of its kind anywhere in the world. It was placed on the south side of the Old Town City Hall and has suffered repeated damage due to war, time and the elements but it keeps on marking the hours as it has done for more than 600 years. Every hour on the hour, wooden figures of the twelve Apostles march past windows on the face, while other figures flanking the clock are also set in motion.Read
