    I've been all over North America on my Can-Am® Spyder™ roadsters, and one thing that comes up all the time is this comment: "When I get so I can't hold up a bike anymore, I'll be looking real hard at one of those,” or "When I get older, I plan on getting one of those, but not yet." If they stick around long enough to listen to my argument for getting one now, this is what I normally say.

    Recently, while attending the annual Classic Bike Show in San Luis Obispo, I met up with an old friend, Craig Vetter, who was serving as Grand Marshal for the event. Some of you might recognize him as the man who was recently honored on the cover of American Motorcyclist magazine. 

    THE BIRTHDAY RIDE

    My friend Brian Hoffman was on the West Coast last week, celebrating his birthday and catching up with old friends. I say "friend" but he's close enough to be a brother. We met when I went to sell merchandise on the national tour of Annie, a job I took so I could travel the country with my girlfriend. Brian was the "Dog Boy," which meant that he took care of the dog that played Sandy and her understudy (yes, dogs have understudies!). Rather than fly two oversized canines from city to city, the company bought a van, and for two and a half years, Brian crisscrossed the country with the dogs in tow, logging thousands upon thousands of miles.
