Road Rash Motorcycle Cartoons – The Book!
Seventeen years in the making. This book is a collection of cartoon strips that were published monthly for seventeen years in publications such as The Concourier, Minnesota Motorcycle Monthly, Go for a Ride, and RoadRUNNER Motorcycle Touring & Travel Magazine. Follow the author as he explores the fun and misadventures of riding motorcycles in many different situations. Bugs, Mother Nature, fellow riders, and mechanical problems make up some of the many situations motorcycle riders find themselves in, resulting in mental and physical road rash. The humorous side of motorcycling is explored on the back of a sport touring bike from the very first ride to the present. The collection contains single panel strips and full page cartoons.The book is available from Amazon, or if you buy it from me directly, you will pay slightly more, but I will autograph the book for you.
It’s a simple formula; cow + rice burner = Cowasaki. If pigs can fly, then cows can ride. I’ve seen a few of these type cartoons on the Internet and didn’t like any of them, so I came up with my own version.
I’m sure glad cows can’t fly
I ride a Kawasaki Concours C14. Wonderful bike and way more power than I will ever need. It just flys down the open slab. I’m not sure which I like better, hang gliding or motorcycling. Each has it’s own rewards and dangers. Each requires great skill and prescense of mind to stay alive. It’s all good.
My first motorcycle was a Honda CM400T. Wish I still had it as it was not a powerful motorcycle, but it was a lot of fun to ride. I rode it during my college years, then stopped riding until many years later. A friend of mine bought a BMW and that reignited the spark that got me back into motorcycling. After college and getting married, I started looking around and sure enough, I started bidding for a Kawasaki Concours ZG1000 motorcycle on eBay. That was a mistake.
I noticed the mileage on the odometer and immediately purged myself from the bidding. In the end, I purchased a used Connie (C10) from a local seller. Soon after I purchased the bike, I joined The Concours Owners Group and became member #4090, where I am an Industry member even today.
