I’ve ripped off a motorcycle genre in naming this site, but “adventurer class” is also a way to approach travel (and life)! Some of this content has appeared elsewhere: Adventurer Class is a new home for my travel (and motorcycle) writing.
I’m a motorcyclist, MSF instructor, writer, teacher, rabble-rouser.
I started riding while in graduate school, when my then-beau bought a 1969 BMW R69S to restore. I learned to shift and turn in Virginia state parks, but I dropped her on the cylinder head one-too-many times for Ralph’s proprietary interest in the bike. LOL! Inseam challenged I am. (I cannot imagine that I actually kick-started the bike.)
Flash forward to Washington, where I bought my first bike, a BMW (naturally). There are now
three four bikes and a scooter in the stable, plus Mike’s two Harley’s (both 1999 Softails). We haven’t decided if we’ll buy a newer bike due to the intricate computerization endemic to all modern internal combustion engines.
If you want to learn more about me, there’s a page for that.
- My primary Twitter account is @kegill.
- I have a public personal Facebook profile and a Facebook page; if my timing had been better, there would only be one.
- Of course, I have a professional account at LinkedIn.
- My portfolio site is kegill.com and my long-standing blog (technology, journalism and culture) is WiredPen.
