BAMF MOTO in Portland  is one of the coolest motorcycle shops I’ve ever been in! Jim E. James is a great guy to work with for the best deal in town! He’s the guy that got my very hard  to get ahold of Aria XD4 sand colored Flare helmet. James was able to grab one right off…

It’s a couples thing!

Recently, I asked two of the couples in our group that each have Super Teneres to write a little bio about themselves. In all my time on social media, these are the only two couples I can find… and both live in Oregon! ( disclaimer, If anyone knows another couple, I’ll add them to this…

Another visit to Seth Laam custom Seats

I’ve spent the better part of the last 2 years on a seat rebuilt by custom seat builder Seth Laam in Redding Ca. It was time for an upgrade for my journey and Seth was on my route so it made complete sense to me for another visit. When Dan Sivertson and I 1st went see…
