The Lure of the Motorcycle


October 17th, 2015 was a new adventure for me.  I crashed and totaled my brand new 2015 BMW 1200GSW.  Some were hoping this would be my wake up call hoping I would not want to ever ride again.  I wonder if those same people question those who have been in a car crash?  I digress. […]
