HA! I'm not sure that I'll pick up another XS. I AM sure that I'll be getting an old bike to tinker with in the near future. ;)

I am quite enamored of the new Z1000. With room for only one motorcycle I didn't want a full-tilt sport bike and the Kawi is pretty well rounded. It's stock for now, aside from an upgraded horn and a...

I do miss the Falcon from time to time. It was a lot of fun. Frankly, working on my Special was cheap therapy. Nothing better than getting out my Colortune and Carbtune II and dialing in the carbs to...

My new bike

I picked up my new motorcycle last Friday, a 2010 Kawasaki Z1000. In all likelihood I will be selling the Falcon to a friend. With all I have going on there's no room in the stable for two. The end...

Why I've ridden oh, ten miles or so this year

This sucks. I rode down route 46 a few miles then back again, probably back in April. As a general rule, I try to live my life and make decisions that won't engender despair when I look back. I'm not...
