In you were a teenager or older in 2001 you will remember where you were the morning of September 11. Last weekend I took the opportunity whilst in New York to visit the 9/11 Memorial. I am always impressed by the way Americans remember their past. The memorials across...

Over the last two weekends, I held a couple of book signings. What was different this time were the venues. These were not your normal biker hang out venues so the stories and conversations were very different. Topics ranged from European literature, English history an...

Attending a book signing at Bikes & Breakfast in Clifton, Virginia is always a pleasure. Today was particularly interesting as the diversity of bikes was incredible. People who ride come from all demographics and today showed the different machine demographics. There w...

I had a free day today. No family commitments, no household chores, no work to complete - nothing.  The sun was shining through the little cloud cover we had and the weather forecast was good. The outside temperature was sitting around 30C (86F). My Triumph T120 was it...
