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

  • Title 42

    The End of Title 42: What does it mean? Is it relevant, or is it too late?  Before I explain, you should know, that at one time, I was a fan of democrats before I knew what a democrat was.   You see, in reply to a friendly letter I sent to the president of the United States, I received an envelope from the White House with photos of President John F. Kennedy, and Jackie with young Caroline and little John Jr. at her lap.  (I still have the photos, someplace!) Fast forward through sixty [...]
  • The God Particle of the American Soul

    I’m an American, happy to be in America. You see, for twelve years, I lived in three communist/socialist countries, and one on the edge of anarchy. It takes generations for the nature of a people to change, and I was thrilled to join in the evolution of a free-spirited nature in Viet Nam, more than in China or Laos. Sadly, such an evolution in Kashmir has been suppressed for decades. I crossed many borders during my fifteen years in Asia, and in most countries, people commented with a bit [...]

  • Interview at the Minneapolis IMS

    I showed the Fat Boy at the Minneapolis International Motorcycle Show, again, for show and tell, only. Rob and Nathan from Two Guys and a Ride took interest with the result of the attached link to an interview. https://youtu.be/KocjVjiYoNY
  • December 2019

    Snow covers the Land of 10,000 Lakes (Minnesota), and consequently, the riding season is over. But another great season it was; riding for those who can't. Like many in the north country, I've torn the Fat Boy down to the engine and frame for minor repairs and clean up in preparation for the bike shows in Feb and Mar. (My annual May ride on the NVAR was another success. Mpls to Sacramento to D.C. and back to visit veterans in homes and hospitals on the 10 ride, CA to D.C. was another [...]
