I sneak away from the studio on a beautiful January afternoon and take you for a ride to Martin County, Texas and the small town of Stanton. There, I chat with the locals at Stanton Drug Store, have a soda or two, and take you to the ruins of an 1880s Carmelite monastery at the edge of town. Enjoy!

Tim's Motovlog #37: A Cold Ride • Mail Call 7


Forty-five degrees Fahrenheit proves to be too cold, even despite a sunny day, so I cut my ride short and head to the garage for homebrew and a much belated session of mail call. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year to everyone!

Producers of 'Why We Ride' motorcycle documentary receive AMA Motorcyclist of the Year Award


I saw the initial trailer for this video when it was first released, and to be perfectly honest, it struck me as just another melodramatic, hipsterish film school project about motorcycles, so I blew it off. However, I just got my new issue of American Motorcyclist Magazine and saw that the film's producers James Walker and Ryan Carroll were given Motorcyclist of the Year honors for their efforts. I apparently and grossly misjudged (something I've been know to do from time to time) and am now quite interested to see it. I know the AMA Motorcyclist of the Year Award has been criticized repeatedly in the past (especially the year it was given to Arnold Schwarzenegger), but I still believe it to be a significant honor and, on behalf of The Superbike Blog, offer hearty congrats on the win.
