Death Valley, California


This is my first blog, so forgive me for any technical blunders.

Why the blog?  Simple.  Because I love riding, I love motorcycles and I really love the places a motorcycle can take me. (or you)  As I've gotten older, riding has kept me healthy, happy, and at some periods in my life, sane.

Motorcycles have allowed me to witness, learn and feel many things.  I've seen wild mustangs running by my side in Baja. I've watched camels roam the Sahara.  I've pushed my mechanical limits wrenching on bikes and I've pushed my personal limits, riding and racing in challenging circumstances.  

This blog will be a dump of sorts, dedicated to all things motorcycle adventure related.  Photos, thoughts, ideas, past memories and future dreams will all be a part of it.  If you enjoy it, great.  If it leads you to ride more, even better.  But if it motivates you to do something you've never done or take the ride you've never taken, that would be the best!  

Welcome to Adventure Rider Dude.

Keep the Prayers Coming!

Several days after his terrible crash, Luca Manca's condition is slightly improving.  He is still in a medically induced coma, but Doctors are reporting a slight improvement in his condition.  When it is feasible, he will be flown from Santiago, Chile back to Italy.  Please keep Luca and his family in your prayers.
The amazing photo shows the first crash of his day. After this one, he apparently continued, but not long after hit a large hole and crashed hard again.
