The Zen of Landing Badly

I recently had a reminder that asphalt ain’t good eatin’. I can’t play the victim card here. I fucked up. All my fault, 100% dumb-ass coming your way. I knew I was cutting it close between an intersection curb and a truck waiting for the light, and foolishly tried to ride through anyhow. Handlebar whacks mirror, […]

Mojo Rising: In Which I Want To Be A Blogger

Hey, reader. So I’ve not been blogging on purpose. Didn’t have it in me. For two years. Yeah, I know. You can fake it if you wanna, but I don’t phone it in. What you don’t know is, the more annoyed or passionate I’ve been of late, say the last six months, the more I’ve been […]
