AMA

Yesterday I couldn’t shut up and today have next to nothing to say. Jerry said all motorcycle riders should join the AMA. No not the doctor AMA, nor the marketing AMA, but the American Motorcyclist Association. I’m not joining today but probably will in the near future. They do have a great website with lots…

Rider’s Edge Sunday

Sunday started in the middle of the night when tropical storm Grace crossed the Texas coast and rain started hitting my roof. I woke up in the middle of the night and I knew it was raining. I’d been exhausted Saturday and had gone to bed around 8 PM. When I came fully awake around…

Rider’s Edge Saturday

Saturday and Sunday we spent a lot of time on the range. The Range is a huge concrete area out behind the dealership with various multi-colored lines on it. We arrived not so bright and oh so early a little before 7 AM. Haven’t seen the sunrise in years. Looks a lot like the sunset…

Cool site of the day

Ray sent me an email turning me on to the discussion of Motorcycles and Laptops on Macintouch. But I haven’t made it through the first response because I’ve been checking out the guys website, the downward spiral. There are a lot of cool motorcycle related stuff. He rides a Ducati and his wife/SO rides a…

Proficient Motorcycling

Getting some things done this morning I spent a little time at Barnes and Nobel and found this book called Proficient Motorcycling by David L. Hough. It is a very good book on being a better motorcycle rider. He also gives lots of statistics on motorcycle accidents. Apparently there was a study done in the…

Biker babes

I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m probably not going to be selling my car and buying a motorcycle. I’m still going to take the class — have to its already paid for — but the ultimate thing was looking forward in time. If I sell my car and buy a motorcycle, in a year…
