I recently had the immense pleasure to attend Harley Davidson of Charlotte’s Project Livewire event. Special thanks to Steve and Ken there, and Harley Davidson Motorcycles for inviting me to learn more and test ride this new motorcycle.
You guys have noticed I’ve been posting about cars and trucks and such a lot more lately. Probably it’s because I love cars and trucks – always have. My first words were – and I’m not kidding here – “Vooma-Vooma”. Those might not be words according to Webster’s, but they were my first words. […]
Okay, so the KTM is so far doing just fine in the snow. Save for the small “Endurance” LCD dash/trip computer… which died on me. So I have no speedo or Odometer… which is no big deal. The bike handles as I expected it too in the snow, or even a little better. This is […]
I keep going back and forth between the KTM 990 Supermoto and the 990 Adventure R models. It’s not like I have any hard on for KTM, as I had one and blew the engine the first month I had it. Since I’ve sold the ZX-11, I am without a Long Range bike and this […]
I got there a couple minutes too late. I wanted that sunset light on the cabin, but it went just a touch too low and the bike is in shadow instead of lit like I wanted. But that old cabin still looks cool. This is just off Hwy 121 in Lapoint. If you are on […]
I’m feeling myself being pulled more and more into Adventure Riding. I’m not talking Trials or MX… but being able to go anywhere. Especially out of my Comfort Zone.

I’ve said more than a few times that the Honda Goldwing is to Bikers what retiring to Florida is for old people with no imagination. I’ve been wrong and I admit my mistake. I could own a Goldwing. This one.
I don’t know exactly what this is… But it’s a KTM dirt bike of some sort, rebuilt as Cafe Racer. I don’t know why I find this so appealing. I really don’t. I love Cafe bikes, but mostly those built on big brutal and thuggish engines. Not angry little Singles. I bet this […]
I hate this. I seriously do love this bike but I’ve finally accepted that my leg is not going to let me ride it anymore. Last time I rode it to work, it hurt far too much. After a long day on my feet, the ride home and the cold combined to put me into […]
There is no feeling like finding the perfect body position, leaning the bike over… you have the perfect entry speed… and you find that perfect line. You and your bike are one and you cut the apex like a Neurosurgeon. The aches and pains from a long day at work are far behind you. You […]
