We have been working on moving this site to the new platform for over a month. That is why you have not seen many articles from me in the last month.
The conversion has been a nightmare. Getting the hundreds of articles, and thousands of user comments to the new system on a test domain has not been easy.
Once the conversion is done, there will literally be almost a thousand URL redirects that have …
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

I already featured the custom work of Walt Siegl, always a very labor intensive and very high end job on Ducatis. As all custom builders know, many are going to drool on high end bespoke motorcycles, but very few will be able to afford them. Staying in business and making a… This is a content summary only.

Here is a video I made of a ride around my home town. I fashioned a home made camera mount on to the Goldwing and bolted down my cheesy little digital camera. Maybe not the greatest of cinema but not bad for my first effort at motorcycle ride video.
Enjoy the ride.

I've been blogging daily here on Ride It Like You Stole It for over six years now, and it's been a good run, but the time has come.
This decision has been made much easier over the past two days, as more than half of my images taken over the past ten years, and shared on this blog, are no longer accessible since Google/Blogger made a change to their image hosting internals; I’m told the images are gone to the bit bucket and unrecoverable. Of course, I have the original images, just not the … [Link]
If , One of those timeless poems I enjoy so much, written by Rudyard Kipling, is an amazingly insightful poem on the attributes of what makes a man a man.
Becoming a man isn’t just one event, but rather a series of attributes developed over a lifetime. If only more men desired to obtain these characteristics, the world would be a much better place.
