Aliens (My Daughter, The Alien – Part 3)

Vultures

As described in Part 1 of this riding adventure, I was touring the forested and desert parts of Arizona and New Mexico searching for evidence of my daughter’s teenage extraterrestrial heritage.

Motorcyclists Travel to Machu Picchu

... to shake that ass. Seriously.

I'm exploring Twitter a lot and trying to see who's interesting out there. I find a lot of motorcyclists out there with some really bike-tastic names and pictures. Much to my chagrin, many of them end up tweeting about their dinner, their dog, their children, and Sons of Anarchy. Now, I like the TV show as much anyone, although not as much as many of you, but come on!
