Interview: Worth “E.T.” Cadenhead
One day, Worth "E.T." Cadenhead decided to follow us on Twitter. It must've been a really slow news day because I asked if he'd like to do an interview on the site. Well, it turns out this resident Texan motorcyclist and motorcycle dealership worker is a little more interesting than his profile mug shot makes him seem!
Worth talks of growing up on bikes, motorcycle riding adventures, the Gypsy Motorcycle Club, and making the switch from cruiser to a sport bike that sportbikers don't actually consider a sport bike. Check it out:

Ultra Portable Cooking Options to Take with You on the Road
There's nothing better than hopping on your motorcycle and heading down the road for a long trip. Maybe you'll meet up with some biker friends. Maybe you'll drive across several states to see the sights. Maybe you'll just ride out and see where the road takes you.
While you'll need enough gear to keep you well-fed and well-clothed on the road, you don't want to become overloaded. After all, you chose your motorcycle for a reason.

Adventures of a Woman Motorcyclist, Summer 2012
My 15,000 mile/24,140 km ride to Central America was full of excitement and hardship. From the accidents to the good times, it was an amazing trip overall. Along the way I encountered bugs, cows, monkeys, machetes, donkeys, volcanoes, coconuts, mountains and much more.

Whenever and wherever riding enthusiasts congregate and discuss the best places to ride, the old standards like the Pacific Coast Highway, Cabot Trail and Deal’s Gap come up often. I recently started hearing about another one lately that had me intrigued - The Lake Superior Circle Tour. The subject of perhaps the most famous Canadian ballad of all time, Gordon Lightfoot’s song about an ill-fated ship named the Edmund Fitzgerald and its 29 crew members warns of the peril such a treacherous body of water can hold.
