On The Road Again

Category:UncategorizedTag: :

Every once in a while I get to the point in my work where I just really need a break, and for me the format of that respite is a solo motorcycle trip, like this one. After 2 years of no seriously long rides, I am hitting the road tomorrow morning on my Triumph Tiger for […]

What am I Thinking?
