Next door to Tablerock Brew Pub...excellent location, and near BSU too. Enjoyed Tablerock when I was in Boise to do some stuff at NIFC (fire center), and loved the bike path along the river for runnng. Hope your biz is a success.

All the best in your new endeavour Tyson, sounds like exciting times ahead. I too thought the idea for organised bike tours would be great down the track when ya settled in.

Cheers and Beers

Thanks man! If you ever make it back this make sure to stop in and say hi! My little brother is Flying Air Attack out of Redmond, OR this summer. I'm sure he'll hit you up to talk fire stuff when he reads this. Thanks again for the well wishes.

Hey Bluebone! Glad you're enjoying the story so far. Unfortunately, that Alaska trip has been put on hold for a bit. And I'm missing out on Baja in a month with my Dad and bro. That sucks, but the time was now to start this little business venture. One of those "Fuck it, PUNCH IT!!!" moments in life (alluding towards past fuck it, punch it moments on the bike). My riding and writing will suffer greatly the next two years. But, I sincerely hope making the sacrifice now to get this company off the ground, will pay dividends for me in the future. Both in personal success and happiness, as well as the ability to take more time off once it becomes self sustaining.

I am most happy to hear that you are enjoying the thread. I had a lot of fun riding those miles. Keep reading!

Awesome pic! Thanks for sharing! I always take a pic when my bike hits the ground. Those are always fun to look back at.

Thanks man. I'll be very seriously looking into it once things settle down a bit. That would be one cool job to have....

Life has been insane the past few weeks. So much so that I've asked my bro to write the report from our road trip. There's nothing exciting to tell on my end about the legs to Boise and back without my brother an 'leenpockets. I'll just have one little section to write when we were separated for a few hours, but that's all I can find time for. He'll be using a combination of my photographs and his.

I at least wanted to say hi tonight and things are going really well right now.

I "liked" your page. I tried just searching for it and couldn't find it unless I used the above link. Weird.

This is hands down the best moto promo I've ever watched. Words cannot describe how awesome this is. A half hour of amazing cinematography, killer hopped up Tigers, and two outstanding riders. Seriously, seriously watch this video.



Been riding Hobbes around the city and being a hooligan about it. Takin him with me to all the business appointments. Things are moving right along.

SERIOUSLY WATCH THIS VIDEO

That is all for now....
