Welcome to my Motorcycle Travel Writing website.

If YOU ride a motorcycle and enjoy sport touring, you may be able to identify with my two-wheeled motorcycle adventures. If you don't ride, you will get a glimpse at what that experience can be like.

So sit back, kick up your feet, and enjoy as we take to the road!

My weapon of choice: the Honda CBR 929RR

Though this model is known primarily as track-worthy weapon, it is so much more.
