Taking a Breather

This month has been the least I have blogged since the birth of this website in 2008 and for that I apologize to anyone who has been coming here looking for fresh motorcycle info. You may have noticed that the entire year has been a bit of a break from riding for me. I am a bit extreme (like many riders) and dove in head first into this sport that becomes an obsession for many including myself. You can say I over did it. I got so involved with HOG that I became the Director and a Road Captain for our local chapter. This past year I gave up those positions but continued on to play a key part in organizing the 2012 HOG state rally here in Delaware/Maryland. After the rally I backed off of motorcycling and picked up some new pastimes like automotive repair, camping and of course writing… just not so much on this blog. I’m reading a lot about advertising and taking a copy writing course. When my obsession was in full swing it was easier to write about rides and new products. Now my obsession with motorcycles has cooled off and I don’t need any new products and I go on less rides. So naturally writing about motorcycling has become a little less easy. I have been less inspired to blog but I do have some catching up to do on blog posts I never got to write but are still on my list of things to write about. So I just wanted to let you all know, I’m still here but I’m taking a little breather. In the immortal words of the Terminator: “I’ll be back.”

  1. In the words of Colonel Sherman Potter, “I’ll be here.”

  2. I think we all go through phases where time and events get in the way. And sometimes just our level of interest varies. When you’re ready we’ll all still be here.
    And here’s wishing you a Happy New Year whatever it may bring.

  3. Thanks guys!

  4. Dear Mr. Green, 1 is not enuff. i have 3; 1/4 in dr., 3/8 in. dr., and 1/2 in. dr. please be sure the inch/pounds overlap and the foot/pounds overlap on the wrenches. i have armstrong w/a certificate of testing. please feel free to use them whenever possible. i have given mine an extensive workout on this trans replacement. any brand is ok provided you use them. having little feeling in my hands tends to cause stripped threads or snapped bolts. amazing just how little inch/pounds are, haha. :-)))))

  5. This is a Craftsman house. Will get more in the spring before we tune the bikes for riding season.
