I ended up getting a subscription to the new redesigned version of CycleWorld. I dig it. Whoever their new designer is actually gives a shit. Clean and balanced design with articles I actually read. Reminds me of when I was a kid and had a subscription to Ride or Dig magazines for bmx.

Part 2: Hà Giang to Cao Bằng Day Three: Hà Giang to Mèo Vạc -Roosters. Fuck em. See part one. I could not fall back asleep so I joined Radke to watch the sun rise. We couldn’t have asked for a more tranquil morning. Breakfast was many instant coffees, and instant noodles loaded with fresh […]
Part 1: Hanoi to Ha Giang Jake, Radke, and I decided to visit the 2 wheel mecca of Vietnam. Most of my vacations all center around some sort of 2 wheel adventure and Vietnam always comes in at the top of everyone’s lists. I’ve taken to seeing it as a motorcyclists Hajj, if you will. […]

I’ve been looking to buy a KZ900/1000 for sometime now. I’ve searched on and off and was a bit discouraged by the condition and asking price for these bikes. After recently driving 4+ hours round trip to NYC to look at one that turned out to be a piece of shit I came across this […]

Turned out […]
