41,000 miles across Vietnam in faith and honor with a playful vengeance

Easyriders Magazine March 2018

“If you like motorcycles, HARLEY TRACKS has to be your next book. Everyday was an adventure. The writing is crisp, detailed, and flawlessly edited.”

Henry Zeybel – Editor: Vietnam Veterans of America Magazine

“There have been many books about epic bike trips–but none are like this one: brazen, brave, and seriously badass.”

Bill Hayes – Author: The Original Wild Ones & American Biker

“I appreciated the deep respect you had for my fellow soldiers, sailors, and airmen. When you called out in the Swan Song Chapter “Brothers! FALL IN – it’s time to go home.” I believe they all heard you.”

Tom Campbell – Vietnam Veteran, SEAL Team One

“I mostly avoid the Vietnam stuff, however, a very good friend sent me your book–I read all of it on Sunday.”

John A. Shaver, Jr. – Vietnam Veteran

“I’m 74 and have no experience with motorcycles. My first thoughts were, WHAT A BRAVE GUY & WHAT THE HECK, IS THIS GUY CRAZY! I truly loved the ending of your book.”

Carol Slater – St. Paul MN

  • Events of 2019

    After a winter restoration, the Fat Boy received a Best Bagger at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show, and an honorable 1st Place in the Open Class at the Donnie Smith Bike Show. Great recognition for those I rode for; more to carry into posterity. Check out the wheels! I wasn’t sure how to get what I wanted. It was a long process, tough on my arthritic hands, but after 40+ hours they turned out as I imagined they would. I like it when that happens! My 7th ride on the [...]
  • Bike Show

    I hope you all like my new web site, and I'm honored to announce the Fat Boy was awarded 1st Place in the Open Class at the Donnie Smith Bike Show in St. Paul MN. Whoohoo! Great recognition for those who gave all in Vietnam. I'll have more to post in the weeks ahead as I prepare for my 7th departure for CA to meet with the NVAR for our annual ride across America, during which we visit veterans in homes and hospitals every day for the 10 day ride to Rolling Thunder in D.C.
  • From the wrath of a Polar Vortex

    Greetings to all in the year of our Lord, 2019 The Arctic has been persistent, and a bit sadistic, with its blast of sub-zero temperatures; and with a blow the wind chill is frightening. And the snow is getting a bit deep, too. But I can’t complain - I’m here by choice, and it’s too cold to ride out! So, in times like these I tinker, which this year amounted to a restoration of the Fat Boy. It rolls strong into the 2nd 100 K miles. While the temperature plunged and the wind howled, [...]
  • On Veterans Day, Nov. 11 (and a little bit of everyday thereafter)

    To the men and women who presently serve our country at home and abroad, Thank You, may God watch over you and comfort your families. To the men and women who have served, Thank You, you've made us proud and grateful. To the men an women who gave all, You Are Not Forgotten. May God bless all our troops & God Bless America.
  • September

    August has taken summer with it, but memories of people, places, events, and always--those who gave all, will stay with me. Sturgis was a blast; first with hail that layered the Black Hills, along with the usual rain storms, and then heat, lots of heat. That might have steered more people inside the Rapid City HD store where I had record sales. Whoohoo! One morning, I met Biker Bob Cooch, who MC's the Rat's Hole Bike Show at the Buffalo Chip. An interesting fella, whom I share a lot in [...]
