Bikernet Road Stories: Detour on the Gypsy Road

Exploring life wherever it goes.

By Scooter Tramp Scotty
It was months past that I’d been contacted by Mike Gonzales in the interest of a company called “Everything Is Stories”. These guys do audio documentaries and were interested in meeting up for an interview. It seemed an exciting opportunity for a technically homeless guy with an old motorcycle and sleeping bag. Problem was that Mike needed to nail down a date and place to fly his people into and t...

Bikernet Road Stories: BAD VIBES

Most often drifter life, at least as I know it, is filled with leisure, little stress, and an easy desire to follow the road to whatever adventure might next present itself. But today it was not so.

By Scooter Tramp Scotty
The Bikes, Blues and BBQs rally in Fayetteville Arkansas was behind me now and the time spent with old friends there had been uncommonly good. But the chill of winter's coming now occupied the northern regions and seemed to be moving steadily south—as was I.

Bikernet's Scotter Tramp Scotty: BETSY'S BASH UP

Part 2 of Splattered in Colorado

By Scooter Tramp Scotty
The seemingly endless prairie that is Kansas lay ahead like some flat and forgotten playing board beneath a huge and endless sky that seemed to make up the vast majority of this lonely land. The road was almost devoid of towns, vehicles, and people alike as its two-lane pavement cut an arrow straight swath across the slight hills and dips that parted vast wheat fields. With only sounds of the old ...

Early Fall 2014

By Scooter Tramp Scotty
Just now however, evening was setting in as we traversed a freeway frontage road just south of Pueblo in search of private country land on which to stay the night. From the right I could hear sounds of the freeway elevated some 15 feet above, while to the left we both eyed the open field that led off to groups of trees in the distance. Thinking I'd spotted a dirt road in, I’d slowed quickly to mak...

Bikernet 2015 UNDERHANDED Sturgis Run

Behind the First 2014 Indian Motorcycle Cross-Country Blast

By Bandit with photos by Wrench, Michael Lichter, 2Wheelers Donna, Rich Worley, Tyler Ludlow, and more
It’s all the fault of the Smoke Out Producer, Commander Edge, a slippery character who worked in Army Intelligence for 20 years and came out slightly polluted. I attend the Smoke Out every year, even through blistering temps and tropical humidity. It’s still the event of events, a rider’s event and a builder’s event. So, came the Bikernet 2015 Sturgis Underhanded Run, by Edge.

Eden Part 1

Wandering into paradise?

By Scooter Tramp Scotty
The winter of 2014 was uncommonly brutal and many friends in the frozen north seemed to be loosing their minds. But for those who live by the motorcycle and spend their days outside, the ways of ice and snow are generally avoided by simply drifting south. And so I had.

The Winter Migration Part 1

January 2014

By Scooter Tramp Scotty
It was just after new year's when New Orleans finally turned cold. It would prove an uncommonly brutal winter over most of the U.S. this year. For two decades I’d spent these frozen months all over the southern states and had learned beyond doubt that southern Florida is the only stateside place that offers summertime temperatures all winter long. This was the destination now. As the back roads ac...
