My name is Alec and I am from Eastover, SC. I am the father of six and along with my wife and kids we raise fainting goats on our little farm.
My first motorcycle was a 1974 Honda CB250T that I bought for $200 in 1981. That was the first of many bikes. This blog will allow you to share in my passion for motorcycles and the places they can take you.
When I started this travel blog I had just purchased a 2007 Honda Shadow Spirit VT750DC. I purchased this bike new in May of 2008, after years of being without a bike, to be a simple run around bike to save gas and have a little fun on. I had forgotten how exciting traveling on a motorcycle can be. But on a trip to the North Carolina country side I was hit by a truck and left in the road. As you can see I an fine. You can find that blog entry along with the photos under "Hit and Run".
My new bike is a 2007 Suzuki V-Strom. It is the DL650 which most people have nicked named the Wee Strom because its bigger brother is a 1000 cc bike.
I enjoy riding in Iron Butt ( www.ironbutt.com ) events and am a member of the Blue Knights ( www.blueknights.org ). To date I have completed 2 IBA SS1000 and a BB1500.
