Moto Blog?

To "Blog" or "Moto Blog?" ... What a Stupid Question

So, what do I call this thing anyway? 

A “Moto Blog?”  Seems pretentious at best, maybe a bit “Hipster.”  Neither of which describes me very well.  I’m too nerdy to be a hipster and way too plebian to be pretentious, so I suppose I’m comfortable enough with myself to say I’m somewhere in between.  OK…now that I’ve talked myself into it, Moto Blog it shall be.

Now that we have that out of the way, what exactly am I planning to do here?  I’m so glad you asked!  First, a bit of background.

Motorcycles are in my blood.  They’ve been part of my life since before I could string together coherent sentences.  I can’t recall a single moment of my life that didn’t in some way include motorcycles, for better or worse. is a family business, started by my Father in 1974, kept afloat on a shoestring budget by my Mother.  My Brother and I have been involved in one way or another since birth, and officially I’ve been training people how to ride motorcycles since I was 18 years old (unofficially since well before that). 

Alright, back to my point.  What am I planning with this blog?  Well quite simply I’m going to give you my opinion, actually it’s more than that. has grown since 1974.  In fact, it now employs almost 100 professional motorcycle instructors and when you have that kind of talent at your disposal you’d be foolish not to take advantage of it.  So, armed with my opinions, and my talent pool I will try to answer the questions that I get on every motorcycle course; “What should I buy?” And “where should I buy it?”

It should be interesting to see where this goes!
