Motocross Track - Beginners Experience
All throughout my life, dirt bikes had never really been my strong suit. After a self inflicted crash due to a bad case of whiskey throttle, into a tractor grading blade and cutting myself up pretty bad on an YZ250 a few years back, I never got into dirt biking. I was always convinced that it wasn’t for me and preferred four wheels and horse back riding than dirt bikes, and I was incredibly scared…

KIMbits & KATtales—Roads to Success
 “We are torn between a nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.” – Carson McCullera Freedom means something different to everyone, but there is a certain consistency in how those of us on two wheels think when it comes to defining what freedom means to the collective ‘us’.

Perfect blue sky, endless tarmac, and not a car in sight… what’s not to love?
Some get into it so they can bring their friends over, and with pride, present the extraordinary set of antlers mounted on the wall. Some do it for the thrill of the hunt. A motorcyclist is no different. For some, the satisfaction of figuring out how to take a bike apart and put back together again is more of an adventure than taking it onto the road. For others, owning a shiny, fast object of…

Pride On Two Wheels—The Best Way To See A Parade Is To Ride It
Heidi Giblon is an artist, a teacher, and a rider. In 2008, she walked into a scooter store and rode out with a Piaggio Fly 150. Like many of us on two wheels, her spur-of-the-moment purchase changed her life. Bitten by the bug, her bikes got bigger and better, as did her rides. She now alternates between her Honda VLX 600 and her BMW f700GS. Every year, Heidi’s biggest rides occur in late June/early July with the…
