Great motorcycle stories

Hey Guys,

There's an interesting website called "Bikes and Buddies" with very funny motorcycle stories.

Nice. I'll have to check it out.

I like this one:

Though his updates have become too infrequent for my likes. Jack... are you out there? Get back to the keyboard man.

Fantastic story on the website!

I'll have to surf around the Bikes and Buddies website. Looks interesting.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Glad you like it, Jake.

And welcome to Adventure rider! This is one of my favorite websites and the forum is fantastic. Make sure to look over the ride reports - there are some outstanding pieces there.
