Viewing the World from a Two-Wheeled Perspective

Anza Borrego Desert State Park Camping trip (not)

Posted by on May 29, 2015 in California | Comments Off on Anza Borrego Desert State Park Camping trip (not)

Last weekend for the holiday weekend we packed up the 4×4 after work on Thursday and headed out to the desert. We were trying to beat the crowds and it absolutely worked. We were the only ones driving 4×4 jeep trails through the desert at 10:30 at night trying to find the camp site we’d programmed into the GPS. Afte a night of gale force winds and rain in the morning, we packed up camp and ventured into town for breakfast. After a couple of yummy breakfast burritos we went out to see if we could find any dragons or serpents… …and we did!   Next we went chasing other fantastic creatures… …although I am not sure who was more surprised when I actually *did* catch him! Then we went off in search of other amusements and encountered this:...

It’s a funny thing for me being on the other end of the interview. Here’s an article about me written by Aaron Heinrich in Asphalt and Dirt: http://www.asphaltanddirt.com/2015/02/25/transformation-on-two-wheels/ Those that know me well know that he got a bunch of things right and a few things wrong…it’s sure interesting to see how someone else interprets your life. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the read. Please follow and like...

Millisecond Millionaire

Posted by on Apr 2, 2015 in California, USA | 1 comment

Recently I was depositing a check and the Wells Fargo ATM automatic reader scanned my check with an extra $7,000,000++. Next the ATM asked me to accept the scanned amount. Honestly, I did hesitate a split second, maybe more than a split second, actually. But then the imp in me said, “why not see what happens?” And I let it go through! (I am a stand-up person and emailed the person that wrote the check to give them a heads-up!) It was an awesome bank balance for a day! That’s right, instant millionairess. It felt really, really good. For a day.   Thanks Wells Fargo for a day of dreams! Please follow and like...

Well! I’ve sure been told I need to keep blogging…my mail was full this morning! Thank you everyone that left comments here on the blog as well as those of you who sent me private emails. I’m delighted to know that so many people value my writing and that it’s more than just my mother reading it. I am also really glad to hear from such a cross-section of motorcyclists and NON motorcyclists! I am glad I have touched people with a variety of interests. I’ll keep writing ans sharing, and perhaps even start asking for some help along the way. I DO have some really cool projects coming up… Thanks for staying tuned in and sharing life’s journey with me! All the best, ~Alisa Please follow and like...

The long silence

Posted by on Feb 5, 2015 in California, USA | 2 comments

“To dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself, to test your limits, that is the courage to succeed.”   ~ Bernard Edmonds ~   This pretty much sums up my last three months of silence…I’ve been dreaming, doing and testing my limits. I’ve expanded my writing business considerably, I’ve been working for BMW at the International Motorcycle Shows, I’ve taken on working with Renedian Adventures (Motorcycle Safaris in Africa) helping them promote their tours in Southern Africa and I’m getting fit and confronting some long-standing habits that are due for a shakeup. I’ve also been trying to decide what to do with this blog. Originally it was meant to communicate my whereabouts on...
