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.

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 »
