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

    The NVAR seems like long ago, and the next one is taking eons to get here. In the meantime, Harley Tracks has been busy at local events, and I thank all who bought my book, and appreciated all the nice words from those who already read it.

That'll be quite a spread on their pages. I'll update for sure. Now, back to [...]
  • 2017 NVAR to Rolling Thunder

    Another great ride across America to visit veterans in homes and hospitals, recognize veterans from the War on Terror with medals and thanks, visit school kids, and pay our respect at cemeteries and memorials. Lots of stories and laughs, camaraderie, support, food, and entertaining weather. Most wore denims, leathers, heated liners, and rain gear most of the ride. Winter storm Valerie forced I-80 to close in Wyoming, so sadly had to miss two hospital visit to get back on schedule in Grand [...]

But not before a necessary nap on the south side of the city. It began with in route visits with Launie and AJ, my neighbor from school days and her husband, in GA. Then to Tampa to meet up with Doc, Bao Anh, and Chloe (I met Doc and Bao Anh for the first time in Dong Hoi, Vietnam, on their wedding day, 2009!) Great to see them [...]
