Great tales of the open road

While motorcycle stories are freely traded by word, few are put down in writing. Even fewer that are great. This has left a void in the landscape of motorcycle literature, both pulp and internet based. But this ended with the launch of Bikes and Buddies, a website dedicated to true stories of motorcycles, friends, family and the open road.

Part humor and part thought provoking, Kevin Moore’s masterful writing makes the reader first laugh out loud then contemplate the social implications of motorcycles and the folks who ride them. His prose transcends any one kind of bike, tearing back the veil to reveal the culture of two wheeled travel.

In the website’s inaugural story “Motorcycle Conflagration,” Gilby Clarke from Guns n’ Roses, a British bloke named Davis Perry and Kevin almost blow up the tiny town of Twentynine Palms. It is a story about road tripping, what it means to be a friend, and how a bunch of bad choices can lead to one huge mistake. Backing up the writing, the website has pages for pictures and the characters who appear ranging from Grandma Ann and the family knucklehead to Kevin’s new son Gage and his first chopper.

A new story will be posted each month. Do yourself a favor and subscribe to the email updates (right side of Bikes and Buddies website) and treat yourself to a enjoyable and humorous motorcycle story ever four weeks.

    I too wish more were written on the tales of the road. Reading these kind of stories makes me miss my VROD so much. Think I need to pick up another one soon!
