MLR Rider Welcome Sign

Welcome
Yeah, we are a little late getting this one out. We will work on getting better at that.
APOLOGY: My apology to Jason Garver of the Moonshine Lunch Run. In the intro of the show I mistakenly pronounced his last name as Graver. It is indeed Garver and I apologize for my error.

Recalls
Good News! No motorcycle recalls during this period.

Moonshine Lunch Run
Do you need an excuse to ride? Some people live by the moniker, “Ride to Eat, Eat to Ride”. But how far would you ride to get a burger known as the Moonburger and have the opportunity to sit around and talk long distance motorcycle riding with those who have the same passion? Today we interview Jason Garver of the Moonshine Lunch Run. A quick heads up! Jason graciously did the interview after a long day at work while enjoying the evening with his family. He gave me fair warning the kids were there and it might get noisy. As you can expect, it did in some areas of the interview but does not take away from the content. If you are wearing earbuds you have been warned. LOL

Besides your normal every day looking rides you will see many like this Super Tenere set up for the long haul. Just check out the backup navigation devices, the multitude of driving lights on the front, and the auxiliary fuel tank mounted to the tail plate. I wanted to talk with the owner but had no idea who he was. I am sure that that motorcycle could tell some stories.

At some point on the day of the ride Jason used a drone to film over the immediate area. If you watch the video you will see breaks in the lines of motorcycles lining the roads which tells me he did this later in the morning. At my arrival there were no breaks in the lines and there were continuous arrivals the entire time of my stay. Check out the video here.

While planning your 2015 rides make Moonshine a must visit. Terry Hammond had a dream and he is no doubt looking down over the MLR with a big smile. In Terry’s words,
“If you don’t make it to Moonshine, you ain’t a Motorcycle Rider, you’re just a Motorcycle Owner!!!” Here is my obligatory pic out in front of the Moonshine to show I am a rider not just an owner!

What is an Adventure?

March 3, 2014

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines adventure as an undertaking usually involving danger and unknown risks and/or an exciting or remarkable experience.

Sam, and many like him, have quit their jobs, sold their belongings, and saddled up for adventures that take them […]
