Moto Madness

So I bought a motorcycle. I guess I just figured, the mid-life crisis is going to come sooner or later, so why wait?

Honestly, this is something that I’ve been thinking about for a long time.  I remember way back in, oh, 2001 or so going to a local Yamaha dealership and looking at the V Star bikes.  No, not looking, more like pining for them. But I was flat broke and didn’t have the time or money to pursue getting my motorcycle endorsement, so I put it off.

Fast forward several years, and gas prices are still crazy. One day, Jennifer looks at me and says, “Why don’t you just get a motorcycle? Don’t they get good gas mileage?” I blew her off at the time, but the thought kept nagging at me. What if I did get one? Eventually I had to ask if she was serious about because I really didn’t think she was, but as it turns out she truly thought it might be a good idea.

So I went for it. I took the Motorcycle Safety Foundation training course, then took the test at the Texas DPS to get my Class M Endorsement. And now, here I am, with a used-but-new-to-me bike sitting in my garage. Would you like to see it? She is pretty. (more…)

Here Comes the Giveaway

I know, another extended absence. I have a good excuse this time though, I really do. Just see the next post down for more details if you don’t believe me.

So, the Hardcover of Chorus of Dust is finally out! Great news, right? Only, if you didn’t order quite a while back or if you aren’t a member of the Darkfuse Book Club, there’s a good chance you’ll never get a chance to purchase a copy, because they’re all completely sold out. Bummer huh? Of course, there’s always the eBook if you still want to check it out.  And you should, because it’s a great book if I do say so myself. (more…)
