Ouch!

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Saturday, September 28, 2013,
I never do the usual things to get hurt, just the most colorful. This past Tuesday I was riding to work and enjoying the fall weather when up ahead I saw a most impressive sight. Wild Turkeys were gliding in for a landing across the road and landing on the shoulder on my side. At this point I was traveling at 60 mph and in no position to stop when I suddenly realized the first two I saw were not alone. Coming in on my left was a squadron of more turkeys and I was riding into a meteor shower o...

Mileages and Events

Thinking Out Loud

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Tuesday, September 3, 2013,
I've had the most profound thought percolating in my brain in the last few weeks. I've been riding motorcycles for over fifty years and been around them longer than that. It's always been enjoyable and I've bonded with many of my bikes and enjoyed their way of doing business. Lately though I've found that I really have connected with the Chinese scooters and the 50cc bike more than I ever did my European or Japanese bikes. Now understand that I'm one of the people who scoffed at the notion of...
