    I have always loved riding motorcycles and have rarely been without one. My passion was riding trails and for the dirt bike. It was not until the mid 1980s when I began riding on the streets but I still needed a bike that was capable of hitting the trails. The Honda XL 500, a massive 4 stroke bike that could do it all was my first Street legal bike. I owned and rode this bike when I first moved to Ogden Utah. Like the Duo Sport bike it allowed me to get away and explore once I got there. In my opinion why would anyone drive a Harley Davidson to Moab if they could not explore the canyons or a trip up the Oregon coast without riding deep into the forest?



    I purchased a Kawasaki 650 Vulcan, A light but capable street bike; she was a great bike, low in the saddle smooth but a little too small for the open road. My next bike needed to be larger, longer wheel base and heavy enough to feel firm on the interstate yet I still need to get off of the road and back onto the trails. The Duo Sport Bike was made for me and the timing is perfect, the perfect bike at the perfect time.



    I will have twenty years of service with the fire department next year; this gives me one year to prepare for an amazing adventure that I have been dreaming of. A cross country journey criss crossing North America from San Diego to Quebec, Key West to Victoria. As I plan for the trip there are steps that need to be taken, choosing a bike, outfitting the bike, securing all of the gear, and test rides. This may seem odd but the last thing I want to do is plan a route or have a set schedule. I want my trip to be somewhat spontaneous.



    And so it begins, my motorcycle journey, The Long Way X-Cross North America. It is now Preperation time, late 2015, as I wait for the warmth of spring. Early 2016 is cold in Salt Lake City Utah, I dream of a warm long road as I get ready to embark upon my adventure. I will start with a few short trips, one day maybe six until I have my first 17 day trip hopefully to the Florida Keys. The first leg of the journey...
