Never the twain: St. Johnsbury, Vermont

I love word play as much as I love motorcycles, and entertaining ways to combine these two passions are conveniently posted along roads where I ride. Signs guide the way and state the rules, but more than a few give me reason to laugh out loud. Often it’s by accident, but other times by design. Signs... Read more »

This is not a story so much about bikes, a favorite ride, or even about the number of bikes owned; it is a story about love. It is a story about the love two brothers have for each other, the love of seeing the country on a motorcycle along back roads, and the adventure of seeing new places and people.... Read more »

One day Bill “Bib” Bibbiani promises to record his famous quips. After more than 30 years in the SoCal Norton Club (founded 1979) and as the “Voice of Hansen Dam” for a couple decades, he’s got plenty at the ready. Over those years, he’s probably put more vintage Nortons back on the road... Read more »

When German car manufacturer Audi purchased Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati last April, many motorcyclists scratched their head in confusion. Ducatisti wept, concerned that the automotive giant would impose Teutonic rigidity on their beloved, flamboyantly Italian marque. The hand-wringing wasn’t... Read more »

How about a 4,000-mile ride on the saddle of a 100-year-old motorcycle? In 16 days? With one rest day, when you can rebuild the bike? Sound like fun? Then you’d love the Motorcycle Cannonball Coast-to-Coast Endurance Run, which began at Motorcyclepedia in Newburgh, New York, and finished at Dudley... Read more »

Just a Short Ride

September 25, 2012

I was in Ohio last weekend. My parents are getting older and my wife can’t rest until she does her own assessment of their health. Deb (my wife) and I drove up on Friday, she suggested I take the bike but I was afraid I wouldn’t have time to ride and, if I found the time, I would be accused of ignoring... Read more »

I received an email from a guy I hadn’t seen or heard from in many years the other day. He found me on Facebook, and I was reminded of the good times we had when we were much younger. Joe is one of the guys that I used to spend a lot of weekends with back in the late 70s and early 80s. There were about... Read more »

Motorcycle riders are some of the friendliest and most generous people I know, so it’s little surprise that practically every weekend there’s a charity ride happening somewhere. Recently, a ride to promote prostate cancer awareness ended in Washington, D.C., but this wasn’t your garden variety... Read more »

Some things are just meant to be. I really believe that. I’m not saying people don’t have some say in how they act or what they do, but some things present themselves in such a way that you just have to surrender to the moment and say “OK, I’ll play along.” It had been several months since... Read more »
