My Story

I’m a sixty+ year old retired teacher, union leader, Viet-Nam vet, father, grandfather, husband, poet ,cook, and brewer of home brews. I’m passionate about all of these things but this blog isn’t about that. This blog is about motorcycles and more specifically about riding motorcycles. I love riding my motorcycle. I love seeing the country, camping and riding some more. I love finding great places to eat and drink along the way and I’ll be writing about those too, but mostly I love riding. Am I a “biker.” Well, I’ll accept that term as long as we’re both talking about the same thing. I’ve come around to using the term rider to describe what I am. I ride a Harley now

and love my bike, but I’m not a part of the Harley Cult. I know there are other great bikes out there and as long as you’re riding, you can ride with me. I’m a rider. Harley, Honda, Triumph, BMW, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, Kawasaki; I love em all and wish I had the money to have one of each. I ride motorcycles and I like other who ride and feel the same way about them that I do. If you’re a rider, come along for the ride.

Keep on Keepin’ On

  1. It’s not that easy finding blogs from other riders in Idaho. Noticed that you’ve switched from blogger to wordpress. Much better template and far more user friendly. I’d have done the same, but blogger has made enough changes to keep me relatively happy.

    Am located in Boise, and also have a blog with 60+ road trips. Haven’t been to Pocatello despite living here for almost 8-years.

    Speaking of brewpubs, Eel River Brewing in Fortuna, CA is probably my favorite. Can grab a motel next door, leave the bikes parked, and enjoy the evening before calling it a night.

    Am going to add your link to my “Grumbler On Wheels” blog while uploading larger images for the Boise Rides! blog.

    Cheers!

  2. Hi, just stumbled onto your blog and thought I’d comment on your story. My husband and I rode up to Yellowknife from Maple Ridge, B.C. (just outside of Vancouver). We had no choice but to ride in all kinds of weather and found out the hard way that when you’re on a road trip like that you have to pack everything! We had everything from 30 deg. C to -1 (that’s freezing) within 3 days. But I wouldn’t trade the experience of being on the road everyday for anything. I’m a passenger and like to sit back and enjoy the scenery and sights. Mark’s been a rider for more than 30 years. We took a total of 16 days for the whole thing and can’t wait to do it again. Ride hard and ride safe!

  3. It Sounds like you’re riding style is similar to mine. Perhaps we’ll cross paths one of these days.

  4. Hey Bro, I like your style how you go about living your passion. May be one day we pull into the same gas station. Ride safe.

  5. Hi, thanks so much for the reblog. I’ve never been on a motorbike but I’ll look forward to reading about your travels! 🙂
