My Books of 2018

I had set a goal of 25 books to read (or listen) in 2018 but I was only able to do 18. I would say 90% of the books are audio. I listen to books while I drive, bbq, work in the garage, etc etc. My favorite book of the year would have to be…

1 Ride, 2 Wheels

As 2018 winded down, I decided to sell my truck to a friend who needed it more. Now that I ride the Grom daily, the truck sat at home a lot while a friend needed a car. The first thing I did after selling it was order myself a rain suit. Usually if it’s raining…

Let’s Go

Nine years ago this year I and some friends blogged everyday in January. That year was 2009! So long ago but I can remember it clearly. (Mostly because I can read it again whenever I want.) A few months ago I wrote a post here that said that Social Media Killed My Blog. It is…

Nailed

One of the things that is recommended to carry with you on a motorcycle is a tire plug kit. I’ve been carrying one in my bag for over a year with hopes of never having to use it. The kit comes with plugs, tools to insert the plug into the hole caused by a nail…

Riding Loose On The Grom

Chains. They need to be cleaned, lubed, and tightened. I am learning now that is has to be in that order. I have owned the Grom now for over a year and the one thing I have not been able to do very well is maintain the chain. What happens when you don’t do it…

Book: Don’t Let Go

I am not really sure how to do book reviews, but I do want to share books that I have recently finished. I just finished Harlan Coben’s Don’t Let Go book and I really enjoyed it. I personally don’t like to read previews so I really don’t want to say too much but I guess…

Rain Ride

In South Texas we can go weeks without rain and weeks with 100+ degree weather so when it rains it seems as though it came out of nowhere. Especially if you don’t follow the weatherman. Someone will think they hear thunder, and the next thing we know it’s going to rain. I ride the Grom…
