Letting Go of the Past

There’s been a lot of change in my life lately. I’ve recently moved to Portland and I’m looking forward to settling down for a little while. I lost a sentimental item from my trip and discuss some things I’m going through in this latest video.



Excited about the upcoming book release?

    Hello Bill,

    Just checking in with you.

    In Portland, now? Quite a number of changes of venue for you in the last few years.

    I see you still have the 650R. Me too. I have been riding more locally than you, but have put on quite a few miles in 5+ years.

    I’m keeping my Bucky’s Ride blog up about every ten days. http://buckysride.blogspot.com/

    Stop in for an update.

    That’s right Bucky. Good to hear from you! Nice to see you’re still out riding and writing.
