If you don't read my blog, read his

I'm often pretty critical of the whole 'Harley' thing, although anyone who knows me really well knows there are plenty of Harleys that are close to my heart, they're just not the ones ridden by guys in "If you can read this, the bitch fell off" T-shirts and German WWII-style non-DOT helmets. I've got no problem at all with the Harleys that my friends on the AMA Pro Racing flat track circuit ride, and enjoyed dragging my knee at Road America during the XR1200x launch a few years ago.

A little while ago, I was alerted to a blog called Bikes and Buddies. It's put up by a guy named Kevin Moore, who as far as I can tell is a Harley guy but probably doesn't own a 'bitch fell off' shirt. 

Seriously, if you like good motorcycle writing this is a must-read blog. I was suprised and even a little ashamed of myself that I didn't already know about a trove of motor-writing this good. The quality of the posts is high enough that he's only updating one or two times a month, so I signed up for an email alert when new stuff goes up. If I were you, I'd follow this link right now, and delve into it.


  1. Mark - Wow! Thank you very much. Those are kind comments, ones that make me feel like my time spent on Bikes and Buddies is well worth it. And I indeed do not have a t-shirt that reads "If you can read this, the bitch fell off".

  2. Yeah it's a good blog, always reliable for an entertaining read ^_^

  3. I too give Kevin my thumbs up. I subscribe so I don't miss it as well.

  4. Thanks Mark, Kevin's writing is pretty great. Just subscribed. Thanks for the tip.
