How To Reduce Your Motorcycle Shipping Costs (2020)

“Don’t skip leg day” and its derivatives are amongst some of the most common tropes in the fitness community. But a lot of the time, you really shouldn’t skip leg day. Especially when you set off for a ride spanning 2,800 miles from Washington, D.C. (the capital of the United States) to Olympia, Washington (the capital of Washington) Learned that the hard way.

The Tail Of The Dragon is a mountain pass that runs along the North Carolina-Tennessee state line. Containing 318 curves within 11 miles of road, the trail is the stuff of legends within the motorcycle community (even having been featured in a couple of movies).

And my response is very polarizing- they either find it extremely profound or consider it to be along the veins of something a 15 year old girl writes in her…

Better Rides With These 5 Classic Motorbike Books

Going to an all-boys school is tough. Especially when you’re a sensitive kid.  I was never into sports, which meant I also grew up chubby. And the combination of a lack of physical prowess and alienation due to the aforementioned physical prowess doesn’t leave one with a lot of things to do after class. Fortunately for me, books turned out to be one of those not-a-lot-of-things. All I did was read. I never really felt good about myself growing up (still don’t), but when I was reading, I wasn’t myself. I was the person who wrote the book. Those words…
