The Merlin App At 5:30AM a strange bird woke me. A triplet call, loud yet smooth and calm. Launching the Merlin Bird ID app to life on the iPhone it immediately identified the stranger as a Black-billed Cuckoo. I laid in bed listening. The cool air of a wet morning hinted at fog. Clouds that […] The post The Relaxing Nature of Riding a Motorcycle appeared first on Scooter in the Sticks ..read more

Based mostly on reviews, reputation, and a gut reaction to its appearance. How bad could it be? Besides, I can adjust to […] The post Into the Mountains With the Honda Trail 125 appeared first on Scooter in the Sticks ..read more

I Done Done It The deed is done. I bought a brand new 2023 Honda CT125 Trail. It’s home in the garage sipping power through a Battery Tender waiting for a little warmer weather.

It was only a couple years ago that I felt the BMW K75C was getting too heavy to handle. Plus I wanted something to ride in the mountains. Not on rough trails or single track. Just the many dirt and gravel forest roads. And the Royal Enfield Himalayan was a good choice […] The post Royal Enfield Himalayan or a Honda 125 Trail? appeared first on Scooter in the Sticks ..read more

Suddenly Autumn Something has changed over the years regarding the onslaught of autumn and winter. I remember my first hunting trip with my father at 13. It was opening day of Small Game Season in Pennsylvania and as we got out of the truck it was snowing hard. It was mid-October.
