PITCHING!

Those who know me are aware that in addition to being an avid motorcycle enthusiast, I also love the game of Horseshoes. In fact, I live for it during the summer when I play in a league that pits 12 area lakes’ teams against one another. Although the competition can...

Then Came Bronson & More!

I’ve got to admit that I’m a sucker for any TV show that features a motorcycle. I recently stumbled across a 2015 AMC program called “Into The Badlands”. The show features a post-apocalyptic world run by territorial Barons. In the show, the barons have very skilled fighters called Clippers. One...

The Kentucky Kid’s Final Lap…

In the past few years I’ve written a number of columns about people who sadly died while riding. Since then a few friends as well as readers told me my column was getting a little too morbid and certainly was not “ride-inspiring.” But we had lost a lot of good...

SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, Something Borrowed, Something Blue… When Yamaha offered me the opportunity to “borrow” their new 2016 FJR 1300 ES for a review, I jumped at the chance. The main reason was that it happens to be the same model bike I own, albeit mine is a 2005 version....

TONI ELIAS: Superman from manresa I was watching the televised MotoAmerica Superbike race at Barber Motorsports Park after a particularly long day teaching an Advanced RiderCourse at FDU in Teaneck, NJ when I was once again reminded of what a phenomenal racer Antonio “Toni” Elías Justícia is. I’ve followed this...

Since the 2016 riding season is officially in full swing now I thought it would be a good idea to feature a few local riders in this column once again… Unfortunately, I can’t tell you this pictured rider’s name or even show you his complete face for that matter because...
