What Will You Do with the Next 10 Years of Your Life?

During most of my life—and I think for the vast majority of us--we have never had cause to think that far into the future. Most of our lives are lived thinking in five-day increments. Our goal is to simply make it through the work week, so that we can catch a fleeting glimpse of freedom for those two glorious days that make up the weekend.

Motorcycle Stories | Past Lives

Do you every wonder what comes after this life? Is there simply a never-ending sea of black silence? Do we spend eternity in some predetermine paradise or purgatory? Or perhaps our souls are recycled, returning again and again until we gain enlightenment.

Motorcycle Stories | It's All About the Smell

In 2019 I was fortunate enough to take a 11,700-mile cross-country trip over the course of 58 days. This adventure was in celebration of completing my 60th trip around the sun. Over the course of this two-month excursion, I wanted to meet as many of my YouTube followers as possible and in the process, turn the camera on them, to hear their motorcycle stories. This turned out to be one of the most rewarding parts of my travels.

Motorcycle Stories | Our Constant Companion

It often amazes me, how wisdom can be found in the strangest places. There are certain events or experiences in life that at the time seem insignificant, but as life rolls on they stick with you. I don’t know about you, but I find myself reflecting back on these lessons over and over again as life continues to throw tests and challenges in my path.

Motorcycle Stories | Finding the Other Road

Back in 2010, before I had a YouTube Channel, I took a ride out to Barre, MA for an open house at the local Victory dealer. On the way, I was listening to some of my favorite Jimmy Buffett tunes and heard the song, "Take Another Road." Listening to the words prompted me to write a blog on the subject which I posted to my website. However, I never did a video on the subject.

9 Essential Items for the Modern Motorcycle Traveler

While I sit around the house waiting for my shoulder to heal (I had rotator cuff surgery) and Spring to arrive, I have been taking stock of all the items I have taken with me during my various tours and adventures. I thought it would be interesting to share the list of items or gear that I have found to be most useful or “essential” for the "modern motorcycle traveler."

2020 Has Been a Bitch, but I am Still Thankful!

We all know it, 2020 has been one wild ride, and it is not over yet. But even with all the turmoil this year has brought, I still find that I have the ability to take stock of all the blessings around me and give thanks.

Eight Tips for First Time Solo Traveler

I was asked by a viewer if I had any tips for the first time solo motorcycle traveler. I thought that was a good idea for a video, so I came up with the following list of eight tips. These suggestions are not about packing or logistics, rather they are about having the right mindset for travel.

Each time I get on my bike I have a great time, enjoying the wind in my face and the freedom of the open road, but every so often I am fortunate enough to have an almost mystical experience.
