BBBC 2016 #5 – Name a place you want to visit this year. Why?

Shout out to ToadMama for this blogger challenge. It’s something I look forward to doing. Odd that I needed someone to setup a challenge for me like this.

ToadMama is a biker chick. She posts about various rides she’s done. As such, it’s no surprise that she would include a travel oriented blog post category.

I love riding and I love my bike. As such, when I saw the challenge for today, my mind immediately went into daydream mode.

BBBC 2016 #4 – 4. Misused and/or mispronounced word or words that make you CRAZY

I don’t know if the internet has enough storage space for me on this one. There is a word that is used by people who like to puff themselves up and sound important. I’ve done some research on it. It actually *is* a word, but even the good folks at Dictionary.com call it “a clunky one”.

BBBC 2016 #2 – An everyday item in your house

This is an interesting topic. An everyday item in your house. What’s an everyday item? Something I use everyday or just something I have? Something that everyone has? Something that I use that I’m attached to or proud of? Hmmm….

I think I’ll go with a seasonal everyday item.  My incense houses.

Brave, Bold, Blogger Challenge 2016 (BBBC)

I enjoy reading blogs. Specifically motorcycle blogs. One of my favorites is FuzzyGalore.com. She is a really really good writer. She’s a true motorcycle enthusiast. She takes great trips and pictures. It’s a really fun blog to read.

As I was reading today, she got me turned on to another blog where they have a challenge of sorts.  It’s all about daily blogging.  Considering today is the first day, I figured I’ll get in on it.

Follow along while I post according to the daily topics.

Rules for a new teenage rider

As a new rider and as someone I care about and love, I am really excited to introduce you to motorcycling!  Motorcycling is something that gets under your skin.  The phrase “four wheels moves the body, two wheels moves the soul” is exactly right.

However, as a new rider and as someone I care about and love, I want to make sure you are as safe and as responsible as possible.  I came up with a list of rules for you to follow.

These are non-negotiable. Continue reading Rules for a new teenage rider

A new pony in the stable

Despite common sense, we’ve added to the stable.  By we I mean me.  My wife wasn’t exactly thrilled about it, but grudgingly she accepts my sickness and need to have more motorcycles.

The firstborn child is 17 and has expressed interest in riding.  I’d like to think that he wants to spend time with his old man out on the open road.  I’d like to think that he wants to use motorcycles as many of us do, do create a special bond not only as father and child, but as brothers on the road.
