Why We Fight

A couple weeks ago we shut our doors for a few days and got the hell out of town. It was a forced escape — a strategic retreat. Truth is, we needed it. We needed to give a little ground and take a fresh look at why we do what we do. Our vantage point …

On Riding Solo

Regardless of what one may choose to ride, be it a vintage British Single, a Japanese Four, a German Boxer, or an American V-Twin, everybody….EVERYBODY enjoys, in some shape or form, the traditional motorcyclists’ get up: black leather jacket, sunglasses, engineer boots, and maybe even riding sans helmet. For some of us, riding while dressed …

Riding Into Spring

It happens the same way for most of us – the anticipation leading up to the first real ride of the year.  Some of you may have been lucky in these intervening quiet months, coaxing your bike out of hibernation and to choke down a carb bowl full of StaBil tainted gas for a quick …

Humble Beginnings :: The DesertCat DT360A

In most of rural America, this 1972 Yamaha DT360A would be dismissed as a “barn bike” tucked away in the back of a shed, uncovered and left to choke on a carb full of old fuel.  More than likely, it would have been used as a farm bike and eventually dismissed in favor of it’s …

The times, they are a-changin

Maybe it’s the jet lag (I’m in Austria at the moment). Maybe it’s the pace of things for me right now, but as I think about what to post today there’s only one thing that really seems to matter. After a year of regular weekly posts, I’m going to be stepping away from the sweetest …

The old and the beautiful

I’m going to make a confession here. I don’t really like the Honda CB750. I know it’s an icon. I know it changed motorcycling forever. I know it’s the birth of the superbike. And I know it’s a favorite platform for Japanese Cafe Racers. Still, I’m not a big fan. There’s nothing wrong with the …

Hello, snow

Last Saturday morning the Twin Cities got its first real snow of late autumn. It wasn’t much, but it was enough to seal the season as far as I’m concerned. While we might yet see the brown ground once or twice more before winter proper, it’s probably safe to say that I’ve had my last …

Autumn Throws Us a Bone

Autumn is my favorite time to ride. The fall of 2007 was when I took up riding in the first place, so every year it feels like coming home. It’s a season of change, and a season of uncertainty. Any given day from September on could be gorgeous, could be cold, could be wet or …
