Memories and Old Photos

Stuck at home, it's the perfect time to organize and enjoy old photo albums.

They remind me of my FIRST motorcycle trip in 1998. My friend Rich taught me how to travel on two wheels. We rode 4,000 miles in eight days, passing through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Canada and North Dakota.

That's my bike in front -- a handsome motorcycle totally unsuited for long-distance touring. I replaced it with a more comfortable machine soon after. Through fate, I got the bike back recently and plan to display it in my personal museum.


  1. Look how young you are! Such a cutie!

    1. Yeah... that's how I believe I look in my mind. *sigh*

  2. Look at you, you are so young!!! That cute smile still remains the same though!

  3. You have the warmest smile, Ally. What a special joy to share in this awesome memory with you and to get to see your late 1990s self. It's amazing, isn't it, how close and yet how far those days feel now, two decades and counting on. Thank you for letting us in on more about the origin story or your passion for riding steel horses. May you enjoy countless more years of doing so to come.

    My son can only dream of your life. And he does!
