Too Hot To Ride?

I guess I’m getting old. For the last few weeks, it’s literally been too hot to ride. Now, I’m not talking about “hot” the way that a lot of the country has had it – I can well remember a late-summer ride past Joshua Tree in southern California years ago…

What’s In Your Bags?

It’s funny to think back to when I first started riding how much crap ended up in the saddlebags.  Now, truth be told, some of that was out of necessity – my bike in those days had plenty of problems and I needed to make sure that I had a…

Go And Get It

Sturgis in the Age Of Corona

It’s interesting that news coverage – which so many times focuses on blood, gore, and shock tactics – has given so little coverage to the fact that over 460,000 bikers descended on Sturgis for the 80th Annual Rally. In all that, only a handful of COVID-19 cases have been confirmed….
