I work from home a few days a week. When I do I usually have either Pandora or Spotify playing in the background. Cori is as eclectic musically as I am (maybe even more so) and she has some spectacular mixes setup that I like to listen to. Anyway, one day I heard a song […]

Are You Too Old To Ride

Aug 23, 2012 View Comments by

If you can’t read the headline, the answer is yes. Really, how old is too old to ride a motorcycle, 60, 70, 80, or more? We, as a community and sport should probably address this before some government agency is “directing” us to, and you know they have been thinking about it. I know and […]

It occurred to me today that, at 47 and with a back condition that flares up on occasion, there are a lot of things I’ll most likely not be able to do that I’d always imagined doing one day. I was always a competitive athlete, and as I got older my focus went from competitive […]

Yesterday my wife and I were meeting with our lawyer to make out our will, what people of a “certain age” do for bonding. In the midst of this catalog of paperwork is the health part, and those questions about extending your life by being put on “machines,” of which my answer was no. It […]

Bikes and Brothers

Mar 04, 2012 View Comments by

My brother taught me to ride my first motorcycle. Dave had ridden for many years and we had a fairly typical brother relationship; but had decidedly different interests. He’s a hard worker my brother – honest, trustworthy, loyal to the core. When our father died suddenly at just 57 years old the desire to ride […]

My name is Chris, and I’m a motoholic. It might be a corny sounding word, but I looked it up and it is legit – sort of. -aholic (also –oholic) is an accepted suffix that “denotes a person addicted to something”. For me, the vice is bikes, and it has been ever since I abandoned […]
