I have spent the last 3 or 4 months riding the F out of the Eastern Smokies and still haven't seen 1/10th of what I want to ride.

I spent 3 weeks riding the Hatfield McCoy system in West Virginia, some of the old system in VA, and over in Tennessee riding the Cumberland system along with the private Windrock park, tons of fun, challenging trails and really great people.

I am heading back next week to WV to ride Hatfield McCoy if anyone is around or wants to be hit me up.

My current new bike, 2019 KTM 450 EXC-F Six Days, fantastic bike.

Week before last at a memorial for reserve Paratroopers killed in the Second Lebanon War when a Katyusha landed in their staging area. The Israeli Motorcycle Club takes part in the memorial every year. Absolutely heartbreaking.

Thanks for your support.

Our tagline is: Winners get Dirty, Winners Fight Filthy.

Gday Team,

I just wanted to stop a big thanks for helping Billy Bob make it into the Top 5 Bikes by popular vote.

Now its down to decision by judging panel tomorrow to see if we progress as the Australia/New Zealand winner into the International Round of H-D Battle of the Kings.

Thanks again.

I stripped all the plastic covering off the KLX 250 yesterday down to the frame. Only put 700 miles on it. A little embarrassed that I had to look in the owner's manual to find the fucking oil filter.

If you ride and have never been to Utah, you should make time. I spent a week or so out in Moab a few weeks ago when it was still warm days but cool at night, perfect conditions. All I can say it Epic.

Massively cool. Did you camp or just go out for the day?

I have a toy hauler camper that I keep the bike and Mtn Bike in so you could say I camped but in the trailer. The cool thing about Utah, Moab area is you can literally turn off the hardball drive a few miles down a dirt road and park there for a week or so. NO campground just find a spot away from anyone and stay as long as much water you have. I stayed North of town off Dalton Mill Road, really beautiful spot, miles from anyone else most of the time.

I have soft luggage for my bike and had planned to do the White Rim Trail which is about 100 miles with an overnight camp in between 2 days of riding. BUT you need a permit to do the road and I was late to the permit party so I put it off until next time.

The one thing about riding in Utah is there are more trails and trips than you could possibly do in a year of riding so it feels overwhelming trying to pick the 'best' trails. I rode for 7 days straight and only hit a very small portion of what I wanted to do. Once I convince the wife to move out there I will be better positioned to ride all day every day, until the divorce of course.

Mmmmm, I Love me some Ducati with that noisy ass clutch. After riding Japanese 4cylinders for years once you get on a duck you feel like your balls dropped at the Playboy mansion.

We have been putting together a motorcycle podcast to tell Rider Stories.

We are up to #5(rough, still learning) with a Veteran Rider Story to commemorate Veterans/Remembrance Day:
