Evolving by Way of Motorcycle

Jan 07, 2016 View Comments by

Coolness Is in the Eye of the Beholder I was buzzing around town a while back on my little Honda 350 K5 when something started “blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind.” The sign said: Library Book Sale. Suddenly, a strange force took control of the motorcycle and before I could resist, I had pulled […]
