The motorcycle has a way of bringing people together. It really doesn’t matter if you ride one or not, a motorcycle connects families, friends and strangers in the oddest of ways. I’ve been fortunate enough with this blog to have the path I’m carving for myself cross paths of like-minded people all around the world. Is it the blog or motorcycles? Yes and yes. When you speak a certain language, it comes across in many different ways. Whether you ride, read or photograph this lifestyle, you have an opportunity to pull people together and share this wonderful world of motorcycling.
Let’s face it, as long as you ride a motorcycle you’ll find everything about them interesting. We’re just built that way.
When Jim Vota of Outland Moto first contacted me and asked if I would be interested in writing for him, I was flattered. I was fairly new to this whole thing and after looking at his website I wasn’t sure I was a good fit. He convinced me otherwise and away we went. What a fantastic experience this was! This was my opportunity to write in a more general way to appeal to a broad-base of enthusiast. Let’s face it, as long as you ride a motorcycle you’ll find everything about them interesting. We’re just built that way.
As time passed, Jim expressed to me that he was taking his website in a little different direction. If you check out his site you will see-as in his own words-A celebration of the motorcycle and places it takes us. This is so true. I know the motorcycle has changed my life and it has not only taken me places physically and emotionally, but professionally as well. Few folks can experience the trifecta of motorcycling, but I’m getting closer. Are you?
I have a few friends to thank for this and Jim is one of them. He and Kristen believed in me enough to give me a shot at putting my stuff out there for the world to read and for that I thank you both. Now, through the lens of a camera, their images invoke what this sport is all about – beauty, detail and the complexity of the machine and how it all comes together to move us. Yes, to move us.

Jim this is long over-due, but thank you. Thanks for giving this small town Kansas boy an opportunity to write about something that has been a big part of my life-Motorcycles. And thanks for your contribution to a lifestyle that is enjoyed around the world. Follow along on their continueing journey through Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Okay, Jeff, I visited Outland Moto, but was not able to find your contribution. Can you share a link?
Congrats on the Motorcycle Trifecta … and while I doubt I’ll ever achieve the Trifecta, I’m glad to have experienced the emotional and physical
Thanks LB! Since Outland Moto has a new website, I’m not sure where all my stuff went 🙂 I’ll ask Jim and see if he can get me there!
Yes!! I want to see what you
Wrote! Please share! Yes… I’m just now reading this. Please forgive. In the meantime I’ve given the Outland moto folks a big ol follow from this little ol HD girl.
Well…it appears when Outland Moto changed their website all of the past post are lost forever in cyber space. Let me assure you this was some of my best stuff 🙂 I just spent some time searching for them – they pop up on google but the link is gone. I’m still looking! I know you have been super busy and I couldn’t be happier for you!
