Goal of the blog and YouTube channel

I started this blog September 2009 with a goal of posting useful information.  On the first post I stated "part of this blog is to give straightforward reviews of items that I have personally used, places I have eaten, roads I have traveled, and/or bikes I have ridden. At times I will use the reviews of close friends that I ride with and respect."

I have strayed off motorcycle related topics a few time i.e. my WWII veteran dad, Honor Flight..., otherwise the gear, roads, restaurants and other items have been related to my motorcycle addiction.

With the same goal and desire to provide useful, honest information and reviews I launched a YouTube channel.

The videos are much more varied and sometimes provide just a clip of a great road to ride, a neat place to visit or some other little nugget.  In the future I will interview other "ordinary" riders about their choice of bikes, gear and accessories so riders can get the views of actual users/riders.  There will be full reviews, trip highlights and more forthcoming.

I will even post some "motovlog" video, which are spoken blogs while riding the motorcycle.  Topics will vary.
My first vlog is about upcoming trip in June, 2017

    Does your son have a ZX-10?

    1. Thanks! Please feel free to give me suggestions, comments...
      My son's bike is a ZX6R. He would love the ZX10, but he will have to wait till he can afford it and the insurance :). He is in his 2nd year of college.
