Some Changes at Miles-By-Motorcycle

I know there has not been much activity here in quite some time. As time permits, I've still been chewing away at improving the site and trying very hard to craft a reliable cross platform mobile app which has proven much more challenging than I ever imagined.  However, some progress has been made and we have our first early alpha testers busily finding all kinds of bugs and shortcomings which keeps my life interesting.  Interestingly, many of the first people who have expressed any int ...Read More

Ian had moved away. Each year he would say, "I'll ship my bike out and we'll do our trip to the Gap again." Each year it wouldn't happen. So, eventually, I decided to guilt him into it by buying a guest bike which we affectionately called "Ian's bike'. I picked up a relatively inexpensive '99 R1100S with less than 10,000 miles on it, but I had made a serious error.
