This blog was originally started to record a five month, 21000 mile tour of the US on my Harley-Davidson. I continue to use this blog to record my own motorcycling adventures, wherever they may be, along with my thoughts and opinions about motorcycling generally.
Having devoted most of my adult life to being a ‘company man’, the transition to the next phase of my life away from the construction industry was always going to include some challenges. Planning and then making my dream trip to explore America on my Harley-Davidson proved to be the ideal vehicle for clearing my mind of old ways of thinking and being. I rode 21,475 miles, in 27 US states in four-and-a-half months.
My motorcycling trips have continued, with journeys across much of Europe, New Zealand, North Africa and Cuba.
A few years ago, I set up and now run Tour1, which takes riders on Harley-Davidson Authorised tours across Europe. See www.tour1.co.uk.
I live just north of London in the UK.

I know the feeling Gary...it's so cool when we find we are doing something right enough to have regular followers! And I do really like what your doing here! I'm looking forward to another year with ya!
Happy blogday Gary! Have been thoroughly enjoying it since last December when I came into the world of blogging!

Happy Birthday, USATHD! :)
Much appreciated for those of us who are not able to get out and take this marvelous ride. Thanks for the good read and great visuals. Happy Birthday.
I find it hard to believe that you have been writing this BLOG for one (1) year.!!. This past year seems to have simply flown by. Where does the time go.?.
Happy, Happy Birthday to your BLOG :-)
I am extremely proud of you.!.!.!. You have continued to write in your same interesting style and of course, the pics you have taken are absolutely wonderful. xx
It is obvious that people like what you are presenting in your BLOG, and I know that makes you very happy.
Keep up the good work, Darl’n ...
Wishing you a safe and interesting journey today. xx
Circle Blue – Thanks!
Chessie – Thanks, but I don’t think I will be on the road for another year! I do wonder what I will do with the blog after I have finished the tour. We will see.... Having regular followers is a good thing indeed!
Geoff – This blogging thing really is a lot of fun!
Axel – Thanks. As you know, it takes time to do, but for me, I enjoy sharing what I am seeing and doing. Your post about a*hole made me laugh!
IHG – Thanks!
Randy –You are most welcome.
mq01 – Thank you!
Jackie – It has gone by very fast indeed! I cannot believe it has been a year since the first post. I think people do enjoy reading it. It is the same thing with the tour – I can’t believe I am more than half way now – the time has gone so quickly - probably a sign of me getting older! Kz.
Well just as we all get better with age, I'm sure your blog will do the same....looking forward to it Gary!
Eve - I am glad you are looking forward to it.
