We're Still Here

Yesterday, September 11th, marks a sombre event in history that affects us all. But it also marks the 6th anniversary of the day I rode my first street motorcycle home from the dealership, an event that has affected me even more than the tragic events in NYC. I've come a long way in my riding career since then, having gone through three of my own bikes, relegated to my wife's for now, and beginning this podcast. But the journey I've taken pales in comparison to the riding recently accomplished in the 2007 edition of the Iron Butt Rally. Look for a new episode of the Twisted Wrist covering that legendary sport soon. I warn you, I've currently got severe internet problems at home that are hampering my recording. As soon as they are straightened out, you'll know. Stay tuned!

You host learns how to fly the hard way, losing his bike, and nearly his life, in the process.

Two corrections to be made:

1. The car was a Nissan, not a VW.
2. It also looks like I only went 15 feet, not 50.

N.B. That's why I'll take one ounce of hard facts (photos) over eye-witness testimony (me, the victim) any day.

It was one year ago today that I posted the first episode of the podcast. At the time, I didn't know if I'd make it past a month, but slow and steady wins the race, eh? A hearty thank-you to all past listeners for bringing it this far and let's hope it continues for a good long time to come!

BTW, there IS another show coming very soon. It's recorded but the post production has being a little slow going. Fear not, it's almost done.
