Welcome: This Moto-Blog belongs to BJ and Jo Ondo! BJ has been riding motorcycles since 1976, Jo was my co-rider from 87 to 92, then she rode her own for 7 years! As of now we ride "double up" all the time. We consider ourselves, RIDERS not BIKERS! We love being out on our Harley-Davidson, 883 Sportster, we call, "Midnight"! Riding the highways and byways that's what we live for!

Our thoughts on motorcycling: "It's enough to be on your way, it's enough just to be moving on, it's enough just to cover ground"! See YOU out on the ROAD!

Changes

Well Jo and I have been riding here and there over the last month, not much distance as we have a very expensive ($500.00+) 25,000 mile service in 400 miles. We have decided to go back to being "Independent Riders" as we've found that "group riding" just doesn't work for us. Due to physical, financial problems we just don't fit in well. It's just so easy to ride alone, stop when we want, eat where we want, etc. so we bailed on the Zebulon Cruisers Meet Up Group and now we are just Lone Wolf'ing it, LOL!  Going to the Open House at Pikes Peak H-D on Sat. the 24th., look at all the machines we can't afford and get a free burger, so it's not all bad, LOL! ;) Sorry for no photo's lately, just didn't want to mess with the camera! Hope your getting in some good "Color" rides it's that time of year! BJ :)

Just rid'in around!

Well not much to add, we've been just riding around the area lately. We did do a area Poker Run for the EL Paso County Rescue last weekend, a good ride for a great cause. This run started out over 25 years ago as the Colorado Springs Touring Club Poker Run and the proceeds have gone to El Paso County Search and Rescue for many of those years. A beautiful day to ride, a good turn out and at the end a totally ROCK'IN band by the name of the Inman Brothers was playing the rock and roll! As usual we won NONE of the door prizes and nothing in the 50/50 drawing, LOL! We did get a bit of rain but not much so that made us happy.  Tonight we will be going to the monthly meeting for the group (Zebulon Cruisers) we belong to. Got a very expensive 25,000 mile service due in the next 800 miles so we haven't been able to do any "touring"! Oh well, that's life as they say. Hope you all got to put on some "MILES"! :)

CO. Hwy. 69 Ride

Put on close to 300 miles, leading a Zebulon Cruisers Ride to run CO. Hwy. 69 down to Walsenburg, CO. A great "back road" way instead of just hauling bunn's on the Interstate! We had 10 riders on different brands and types of machines and even though it was HOT, (95F+), the ride up to Westcliffe and down 69 to Walsenburg has excellent mountain vistas views with almost no traffic. We stopped in the town for a good Mexican meal at Cortina's Mex Restaurant and the company was excellent. We rode back via CO. Hwy. 165, by San Isable Lake and Bishop's Castle, more nice cooler "mountain" temps! LOL, was too busy enjoying the RIDE to take route photo's but here's some of the group both riders and machines! :)






A Just US Ride!

Jo and I took a break from being "ride leaders" and just took a great run up to Victor, CO. via Hwy. 24/67 and Teller Co. Rd. 81. This road goes in the "backway" to Victor, instead of having to go through Cripple Creek and then take CO. Hwy. 67S. into Victor. Where Cripple Creek is now a Gambling Town, Victor has stayed true to it's Gold Mining roots. We had a excellent double burger at the Victor Hotel and Restaurant, then walked around the very few streets of this tiny town. The ride on Teller Co. Rd 81 is sweet, twisty roads with great views and lot's of fluttering Aspen trees aligning the road! Some times there's nothing better than a ride that's "Just US"! :)

Stars and Strips Bike Night at American Motorcycles, in Co. Springs, CO.

In early July we rode out to a local, Non-Factory H-D Service Shop, called: American Motorcycles here in Co. Springs, CO. for a "Stars and Stripes Bike Night" and to see upclose and personal, the new "Indian Motorcycles" for the first time! They had a great band called the Klash and sloppy joes with the fix'ins for food! We checked out the Indians and really liked what we saw, if I was a RICH guy, I'd be getting a "Chieftain" model and putting on a "Trike Kit". Still we did like the new "Scout 60 models" too.

The Scout 60 is the cheapest model of Indian and has a more "Modern Style" of motor than the Full Size models. The nearest dealership is 40 miles south of C. Springs in Pueblo West but it's a easy ride down there so that's not a big issue!  Here's a photo of ME on a new Scout 60 and some photo's of the bike night, enjoy! :)
Old Indian Board Track Racer!

The Band!


ME on the Scout 60! :)



The 111ci. Chieftain, would make a killer looking TRIKE!
