Three Things That Make Progressive® International Motorcycle Shows® a Crown Jewel of Motorcycling

In the throes of winter. On the heels of a 3-day polar vortex. In rolls The Progressive® International Motorcycle Shows® (IMS) to Minneapolis February 1-3, 2019. Thank God. For us Northland motorcycle enthusiasts, getting through winter is a tricky thing. We think about riding, talk about riding, look at pictures of when we were last riding. We obsess [...]

The next something

My last adventure included this beautiful herd. Horses -- always horses for me. (Montana, September 2018) I've always been one of those people who needs to have plans. Plans for my business, my kids, and definitely plans for my next trip. I've been traveling consistently since I was in my early twenties. So it has [...]

Motorcycle Safety Class: Lessons in Humiliation, Frustration and Life-Saving Skills

Though a “newer” rider, I feel pretty comfortable on motorcycle. I’ve been very fortunate to have logged over 15,000 miles in 26 months of owning my bike. Lots of gravel, u-turns, tight parking, traffic jams for miles, rush hour traffic and construction zones, from Milwaukee to San Diego to Kansas City to Orange County, have [...]

When Bad Meets Good

It’s been a rough week. Actually, a friend and client had a rough week. Which means I had a rough week. Life got really hard for him. He’s had a tough go of things for a while, and it all came to a head this week. There was nothing anyone could do. I’m being intentionally [...]

Should Kids Be Passengers on Their Parents’ Motorcycles?

Ana took her 9 year old boy out for his first ride this past Sunday. He LOVED it, and wants to ride more. Should kids be passengers on motorcycles? Am I an irresponsible mom by introducing my children to this sport? Should I allow my children — who I love more than anything [...]

How A Leg Injury Ruined Me. Then Saved Me.

I have just returned from a solo motorcycle trip in Southern California. It's early December, and I want to move fast into what's next – karate belt promotion. A previous injury to my right knee in a down-n-dirty beach volleyball match has kept me down for 6 months and slowed my progress in karate over [...]

When Doubt Serves. And When it Doesn’t

"Doubt is useful for awhile. We must all pass the garden of Gethsemane. If Christ played with doubt, so must we. If Christ spent an anguished night in prayer, if He burst out from the Cross, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" then surely we are also permitted to doubt. But we [...]

7 Reasons Why Sturgis Rally Makes Us Better

Another incredible Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™. Seems like it takes forever to get here. Finally the day comes when you hit the road. Then, before you know it, you’re on the road home. This was my second time attending Sturgis Rally, though I’ve ridden the Black Hills a handful of times. On my solo, no-tunes [...]

Brother Here, Brother Gone

I met Erick one year ago. We met on Facebook, in the Minnesota Harley Owners group. I had posted that I was riding to Sturgis bike rally solo, that I was a new rider, and if anyone wanted to ride with a newbie, please let me know. Of course, no one responded. Then someone [...]

Riding motorcycle keeps me simple

I love riding motorcycle. Long, long rides and packing my bike down with bags and bungees. Forever, wide, desolate and open roads. I love both the utter loneliness and total completeness of riding. One of the things I love most, however, is the simplicity that comes with riding. It's just me, my bike and the road. Yes, there's all [...]
