    Nice. I'll have to check it out.

    I like this one:

    Though his updates have become too infrequent for my likes. Jack... are you out there? Get back to the keyboard man.

    Fantastic story on the website!

    I'll have to surf around the Bikes and Buddies website. Looks interesting.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    Glad you like it, Jake.

    And welcome to Adventure rider! This is one of my favorite websites and the forum is fantastic. Make sure to look over the ride reports - there are some outstanding pieces there.

    The stories on Bikes and Buddies have a rhythm and flow similar to Kerouac, and if read correctly they bop along with a linguistic rhythm.

    I'll say this, then leave this thread alone since it's becoming narrow:

    A new story - one about my friend Gilby Clarke from Guns n' Roses - will be posted in a few days. It's a slice-of-life piece with lots of backstory about his early days with the band.
