Waypoints Vol. 1, Zen Motorcyclist book

In this 48-page collection of essays, Waypoints, Volume I: Zen Motorcyclist, motojournalist Bud Miller touchingly and eloquently shares introspections and lessons learned during his more than 200,000 miles traveled on a motorcycle. Although his writings originated from the metaphorical waypoints visited along his riding journeys, riders and nonriders alike will find plenty to enjoy in these meditations on life, loss, and love, stories that center around the commonalities that unite and bond not just motorcyclists but everyone.

It has become so much more and has been a conduit of change that has allowed me to become more rounded and open—and to seek challenge rather than retreat from it…
