This year we're doing things differently. We're not reducing our prices or offering coupons over the Memorial Day Weekend. Instead, we're making a pledge - to donate to the homeless vets of our city. For every product sold over the long weekend, we'll donate two plain t-shirts and 6 bottles of water. It's not huge, but neither are we. We're a family run company doing all it can to survive. But this, is something we feel strongly about.
So if you need some new Draggins, or know some one that does, this is the weekend to buy. Not only will you be buying an American Made product from a family owned and run business, you'll also be helping those vets who sacrificed so much but have so little.
Some roads just beg to be ridden. But not this one. It's a dirt and rock path that winds around the near vertical cliffs of the Himalaya in Indian. It stretches 145 miles as part of National Highway 26. The road starts at an elevation of 10,100 feet and ends just over 5,374 feet. So [...]
We've all been there. Cruising along a beautiful secluded road, opening it up on the corners and really feeling alive. Then, right in front of you - some sort of beast. Not the type with one hand on their phone and the other out the window. The other kind. A deer. A kangaroo. A bear. [...]
Ok. So this is awesome. Riding is inherently dangerous. There are all kinds of things you have to keep an eye out for. And avoid. And while this all happens at a controlled airstrip, there are still things that could go wrong. And often do. Just check out how close the airplane's tail go to the [...]
Leaning Into The Learning Curve, Part 4By Nolan DavisMy next destination was Denver. As I entered into Colorado, the winds diminished and now my thoughts were focused on my front tire. I just have to get to Denver. I was forced to ride Interstate highways because many of the scenic secondary roads north of Denver had been destroyed by [...]
Leaning Into The Learning Curve, Part 3By Nolan DavisThe plan, for the next morning, was to travel north through the scenic Bitterroot Mountains and visit a friend in Missoula so she could show me her favorite places in Montana. But the Bitterroots and Montana were now blanketed in snow. It snowed for two more days. It was not even winter yet. [...]
Leaning Into The Learning Curve, Part 2By Nolan DavisWhen I returned to Seattle by plane, I met up with some Alaskan friends that were coincidentally there. Next stop, Portland. Once I was ready, I rolled the bike out of the garage and learned that the battery was completely dead. Lights were not [...]
Leaning into the Learning Curve by Nolan Davis At the beginning of the summer, I purchased a 1997 850R BMW motorcycle with less than 8K miles on it. My knowledge of motorcycles is very limited and I am far from an expert rider. I rode my father's Harley occasionally when I was in high school and my [...]
