Fuzzygalore has been one of my favorite motorcycle bloggers for years. Her posts aren't always motorcycle-intensive and that's part of the charm. Fuzzy writes and posts pictures of life as it happens, and we love her for it. I'm going to take a page from Fuzzygalore's book and forget about motorcycles for this one. If you like history and high hopes, this might still be for you.Read More »

Motorcycles Changed My Life & Saskatchewan Sucks
I'm 25 years old. I've owned over a dozen motorcycles. I've been riding since I was a teenager. I hold a full M Class motorcycle license in Ontario. I don't own a car or even a car license. I own a house, and a garage full of motorcycles.
