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

  • 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 [...]
  • July 2018

    HI! I hope ya’ll like my new Home Page presentation and enjoyed the new intro video. My full presentation is now on the Video Page. We had great weather for the Patriot Ride on June 30, and a great turnout for recognition to our fallen veterans and Gold Star families. Never Forget. At the Patriot Ride Bike Show, I was proud and honored to receive Judges Choice with my new paint on the Fat Boy. Then, July came on like a blast furnace. The Travelling Wall in Princeton MN held the [...]
  • 2018 NVAR

    The 2018 National Veterans Awareness Ride (NVAR) Any ride for those who can’t is a good ride! I followed my tracks from years past as far as Gillette WY, where a winter storm forced me south, and then west, away from the Big Horn Mts., Wind River Canyon, and the Grand Tetons, then into Pocatello from the south. In the middle of Idaho,  I rode north, behind the storm, through Sun Valley and then south into Boise; a great trail with sweeping turns through forest and down the mountains. [...]
  • Painted for Posterity

    I'm going to piggy back this post for my convenience: May is a month I commit to honoring our veterans across America. I'm currently 3,400 miles into the ride, with another 5,000 to go. Please visit www.nvao.us to follow our ride. Thank you & Never Forget The best rides are those that "just happen", like mine in Harley Tracks, and the best ideas come in their own time, like those in the fresh paint job on my Fat Boy. Thanks to three talented painters, I'll ride with a greater [...]
