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

  • Readers from Sturgis

    One evening at the Elk Creek Campground bar: Jeff took a seat next to me on the porch and says he wants to buy Harley Tracks. He said Charlie, a buddie who bought the book a couple days before, was reading it instead of taking his afternoon rides into the hills. If it's that good, he wanted one too. I'm humbled by the praise and recognition to my story. I feel a tinge of guilt because I had so much fun along the way; but there were many aspects to it, and I'm pleased all connected [...]
  • January 2016

    I hope you’re off to a great start in this New Year. To all who bought Harley Tracks last year, thank you. To those who ordered a book in the first weeks of 2016, thank you too. People from sea to shining sea and between the Great Lakes and the Gulf ordered Harley Tracks. At book signings from Minneapolis to Hollister CA and Sturgis to Kokomo IN, I was humbled by recognition to my journey. Check out readers’ comments on the About Page. (Among respected reviewers is an editor at the [...]
  • Harley Tracks December Discount: $5.00 off cover price.

    Never Forget Yesterday, November 11, compliments and recognition to our veterans present and past jammed air waves, texts, and browsers; with personal congratulations and broad displays across America. It felt great to share in that expanse and depth of patriotism. Veterans Day and Memorial Day observances come once each per year while those in service hold duty 24/7, 365 days/year. Each day, a simple act of gratitude will go far to balance that ratio. "Our privileges can be no [...]
  • Kokomo Reunion

    The 33rd Howard County Vietnam Veterans Reunion in Kokomo, Indiana rocked. I hauled the bike and books there in one day, and hoped to never drive through Chicago again--tolls with a tandem trailer are outrageous. I met NVAR friends Tuesday night in on an old airstrip turned campground . Vets from around the country converged over 10,000 strong for a wonderful weekend. Wednesday morning I rode into Kokomo to visit the Veterans Memorial Park. Within it, a new memorial honors Blue/Gold Star [...]
  • Post 2015 & Pre 2016 – Sturgis

    It happened so fast, a million people converged on the Black Hills in a flash, and now it's in the past. Thanks again to those who packed Harley Tracks on their ride home. Ken, from WI, was the first to order the book on his return home - Thank you Ken. Since my return I've sent books to a magazine editor for a review and post, and to radio and tv hosts for reviews and interviews. On this cloud covered day, a great review came out of the blue; Henry Zeybel, an editor at Vietnam [...]
