About the Author:
By 1990, I had ridden motorcycles through every state east of the Mississippi River, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and five Canadian provinces, but I wanted to do more. I wanted to explore the back roads across America, see the Isle of Man TT Races, examine everything that's foreign at a European Grand Prix, and experience the canopied forests, cascading streams, and towering mountains of Pennsylvania's state forests.
Over the past thirty-eight years I've done all this and taken thousands of photos of the places I've been and made millions of memories of the unforgettable people I've met. Along the way, I've recorded my experiences in hundreds of magazine articles, and traveled hundreds of thousands of miles by motorcycle in the pursuit of my dreams. If this sounds like something you'd like to do, then these articles are a valuable tool to assist you in fulfilling your dreams too.
These articles are the fruits of a trial and error tree planted decades ago. The bad roads, the dead end trails, and the nasty places have been left out. What remains is a four-decade distillation of motorcycling in 38 American states, five Canadian provinces, five national forests, ten Pennsylvania state forests, and eight foreign countries. These articles contain valuable information that will save you time and money and enable you to efficiently plan your own adventures while avoiding the mistakes I've made. Let each article be a preview of your own adventures.
