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

  • First Season of ’17

    Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens, became the first casualty on President Trump’s watch; keep him, and all before him—not forgotten—pray their sacrifices are not in vain. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Harley Tracks rolls into 2017, with events big and small planned into 2018. Mar. 10 – 19: Bike Week, Daytona FL. I'll go to Tampa first to spend a couple days with Doc and Bao Anh. I met them on their wedding day in [...]
  • December 2016

    If it's cold enough, and it is, it should snow. That would rub out the temptation to ride. I have no excuse for late posts to social media, I'm just not strongly into it, but I eventually get to my home page.  I've been busy with Harley Tracks at book signings and presentations; spent the week before Veterans Day at the Branson MO All Veterans Reunion. The town does a great job of recognition to vets. At the Veterans Village, I had the honor to meet Claire Starnes, author of Women [...]
  • Harley Tracks to the year’s end

    Harley Tracks covered a lot of miles in 2016. I wish my Fat Boy would have logged as many! Summer blasted past, but memories remain. I was humbled by comments from many readers I met on my return to venues I attended in 2015. Those who gave all--are not forgotten--with a story like no other. However, the year is not over. I have a busy schedule in they final 10 weeks, and invitations continue to come in. Besides personal presentations, I connect with groups via a Zoom program over the [...]
  • STURGIS 2016

    Like last year, I left Mpls MN, for Sturgis, on a Sunday afternoon--after my annual four day weekend at a lake in up north with my brothers. Ya! We visited our last uncle, Lambert, in Grand Rapids, and then enjoyed the 2nd Amendment at a gravel pit; and that's all I'll say about that weekend. What happens at the lake, ya know, stays at the lake. Ya! Long live the Sturgis Rally. The faithful came. Vendors, and those with services of all kinds, could, and should not have expected a [...]
  • Sturgis

    I'm hauling mine to Sturgis. BUT--I rode it 41,000 miles across Vietnam--with a playful vengeance for those who gave all. Browse my web site; check out the photos and read some stories, and read what others have said about Harley Tracks. I've posted photos of a few who bought the book last year. One guy read the book in ten days, and I thought that was some serious reading, but last week I got news of a Vietnam veteran who read Harley Tracks in one day. That's 95,000 words=over 265 [...]
