The dreams of the night time will vanish by dawn

And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me

Organize A Buddy Trip

A few recommended destinations include Mendocino, California; Hollister, California; Kern County, California; and Baja, Mexico.

Attend A Major Race

A couple of years ago I started paying Dorna to watch racing on, but nothing beats the real thing. Experiencing the sights and sounds of top-level motorcycle racing in person is priceless, and with Valentino Rossi nearing the end of his racing career, this might be the last year to see him holding fast with Marc Marquez, Andrea Dovizioso, Dani Pedrosa, Johann Zarco, and company. You can piggyback the Handbuilt Show, which runs concurrently in downtown Austin.

Rows Come and Go: Lexus Will Offer a Five-Seat Version of the LX570

  Rows Come and Go: Lexus Will Offer a Five-Seat Version of the LX570 Lexus RX buyers have been clamoring for an extra row of seating for years now, and Lexus is finally placating them with the new seven-seat RX L. But apparently those interested in Lexus's biggest SUV, the LX570, have been asking for just the opposite. So Lexus has removed the LX's third row of seats to create a new five-seat version of this Toyota Land Cruiser–based behemoth that begets more cargo space and a lower base price.The change really is as simple as removing the LX570's third-row bench and its accompanying hardware.

Learn How To Maintain Your Bike(S)

A major hurdle for many new riders is feeling overwhelmed by how much maintenance their new bike needs. Stripped down to the basic preventative needs (oil, tires, rotors, brake shoes), taking care of your bike isn’t impossible if you have the right tools and resources. Start with Cyclepedia, an online resource for training videos and service manuals.

If you lack space to work on your bike, seek out one of the many DIY shops across the country. For a nominal hourly rate, you get a lift and access to tools plus assistance from the owner of other customers. My experience at Moto Guild Silicon Valley has been nothing short of a miracle to keep my bikes rolling.

The major caveat to knowing how to maintain your bike is eliminating the fear of getting stranded. Most mechanical issues can be avoided with proper maintenance, and little things don’t have to become big issues.
