Feeling bookish

Hi Sam, Have you written any books? I have read a few of your articles in THUNDER PRESS and would like to read more like that. The trip to Alaska sounded interesting. It’s the kind wanderlust I always had. Never been there but I may some day. The part about worrying over the draft was very real. I never joined ...

Travelin’ Woman

Hi Felicia. Thanks for the stories and the great photos. If I read right. It sounded like you are going to Mama Tried in Milwaukee. If you are riding and need a place to stay or warm up. I live in a little farm town, in an old house that use to be a guest house on the old Lincoln ...

Lone Rider

Sam, I always enjoy your columns. Yours and the Blue Dog Diaries are the two “must reads” every time I get a hold of a Thunder Press. Your “Arguing Alone” piece this month really hit home for me. I lost my best friend, riding partner and soul mate of 30 years three years ago. We had done numerous road trips ...

A handy “How-To”

Hello, Shadow. I just read your column in Thunder Press telling of your experiences with the GPS. The H-D Ride Planner is the most non-user-friendly product there is. Why can’t the route stay the same after it has been loaded to the GPS? I have an Ultra Limited now with the GPS built in and use a flash drive to ...

Swapping stories

GREAT article, Sam! As someone who has been riding a Harley for 56 years, I share your sentiments profoundly! Keep up the great writing! Maybe we’ll run into each other on the road one day and swap stories! Merry Christmas, Mike Mike, Swap stories… you bet… but be advised I also steal stories. Thanks for the comments, be well. —Slippery ...

Universal ride

Hi Sam, I just read your article and felt the need to send my thoughts… I worked for a company in Redwood City and the receptionist said one day, “You should meet my younger sister, I think the two of you would get along great.” What she neglected to tell me was that her sister lived in Southern California and ...

Basque-ing in it

Sam, Really enjoyed the piece you wrote for THUNDER PRESS in the November issue. I live in Visalia and have watched the Basque and their trained dogs tend to their sheep in the Central Valley for years. Your writings continue to bring great enjoyment when I pick up a copy of Thunder Press. On a side note, I’m still waiting on the ...
