Back in my younger years, when I was overfilled with adventure spirit and as intrepid as the little dirt bike I rode in on, I took my very first multi day motorcycle trip. One that really showed me what adventure ...Read More »
If there were ever a time to say “Fork it!” and go for a ride it would have to be after leaving your job and ending your seven year marriage. While most of us would go for a weekend or maybe week ...Read More »
For the past decade, Joanne and Gareth Morgan, two semiretired motorcyclists from New Zealand have been living the lifestyle of their dreams. They've probably been living the lifestyle of your dreams, too. They've been traveling the world on motorcyclists with their closest friends, and have ridden across all seven continents. Are you jealous? You will be. Some of their routes included Venice to Beijing, Florida to Alaska, and South Africa to the United Kingdom.
Their latest expedition was across North and South Korea. This was the first ever journey across Korea in almost 70 years since the Korean peninsula's division after World War II. The North Korean travel was choreographed, the riders had certain equipment confiscated, however they were pleased with the North Korean hospitality and help they received as they traveled through mountainous terrain and sacred lands.

We got an email sent in to us about a demographic. Usually we don't bother with these kinds of advertisements, but this one actually struck us as pretty useful for those new to motorcycle group rides. Have a look at these hand signals for motorcyclists before you go out on your next group ride so you know how to communicate with your fellow riders, even without a motorcycle communication system.Read More »
Having ridden in groups with riding styles ranging from military drill team precision riding formation down to some total free-for-alls, I have had the opportunity to look at many aspects of group riding and develop some preferences. The classic question for group riding is how tight and crisply is your group going to ride. The sub-questions are how safe do you want to be and what level of focus and reaction time are the riders comfortable with.
The three types of Motorcycle Group Ride Formations we'll look at are Military Precision, Free For All, and Compromise.
Having taken care of business finding an alien connection to my daughter’s teen extraterrestrial heritage, I was clear to simply explore southern New Mexico, a place I had only passed through previously. About an hour south of Roswell, NM and 146 flat miles northeast of El Paso, TX is Carlsbad Caverns.Read More »
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. I rolled into southern New Mexico, riding toward Roswell, home of the UFO museum when I stopped for lunch in the small desert town of Corona, where the UFO incident of 1947 occurred, as I learned later when I reached the UFO museum.Read More »
Convinced that my daughter’, Bailey's teen behavior could not be explained by normal human characteristics, I was sure there were extraterrestrial genetics at work and I was on a mission of discovery through Arizona and New Mexico searching for proof of alien landings. In Part One I cruised across the Arizona desert and visited the Winslow Meteor Crater failing to find any evidence of alien arrival at that site. I was now headed to Chinle, Arizona, hoping that ancient Anasazi or current Navajo art might offer some indicator of alien contact.Read More »
You would assume this would be a dull subject and that my daughter’s heritage would be pretty much the same as mine and you probably don’t give a rat’s ass about that and then you might ask what the hell does this have to do with motorcycles? Well, you would be very unobservant and wrong in your assumptions. Here’s why.Read More »
