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?

Stacy 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 [...]

Gutter, but stars

In the gutter. Breathing dirt water. Choking. Coughing. Gasping for air. Thinking you might just die? You know the oxygen comes back. That you will breathe again. So you keep your eyes upward, you hold the vision of beautiful, remarkable -- your heart's sweetest desires. Looking for the bright. The twinkle. The shine. Because that's the way [...]

Sierra Mountains: First Time in the Dirt

Four weeks ago I was flying from San Diego to Minneapolis. From my window seat, I could see the winding dirt trails and roads of the Sierra Mountains. They looked like never-ending snakes. I decided right there and then that I wanted to get on those trails. And so that happened this weekend. With my 10 year [...]

First Ride of Season – 4 Great Safety Reminders

April 1, 2017: First ride of the season here in good ol' Minnesota. It was in the 60's and beautiful. Met up with a great bunch of people, and we rode and rode. Couldn't be more grateful. Being back on the bike after 5 months off, reminded me of a few important things, which I'm pleased [...]
