Woodstock Triumph – A Welcome Sight

Woodstock Triumph - A Welcome Sight

I was pleased to learn that Woodstock Harley-Davidson was adding an “add-on” Triumph dealership to their retail location. Although I have not issue with MCC, where I bought my bike, Villa Park is a bit of a haul for me.

GlobeRiders - IndoChina Expedition

Adventure in IndoChina One of the things that attracts me to motorcycling is the inherent sense of adventure it provides. It doesn’t matter if you’re running local errands or on a weekend trip, riding a motorcycle is a better way to travel because all of your senses are aroused.

Tour de France – Motorcycle vs. Bicycle

I love the Tour de France. Aside from the thrills of the race itself and the absolutely gorgeous scenery, I’ve often wondered about those people who ride the motorycles.
