by Scooter Tramp Scotty Kerekes One of the strangest aspects of a drifter’s life is the fact that he has almost no permanent reality of his own. Almost every man has his own reality; his job, woman, friends, family, home, dog, etc. The things he loves and things he only tolerates in his world. In […]

By Scooter Tramp Scotty Kerekes The time in Billings, Mt. had been unusually strange, if not a little fantastic; but the story I’d like to tell now would not begin until two weeks later in Kansas.

by Scooter Tramp Scotty Kerekes Memories of the tropical Hawaiian Islands were only a week old as I strained to look through the bug-spattered windshield of the old Electra Glide. Ahead, Hwy 80 now stretched across the boring plains seemingly forever. I was definitely in Wyoming. But hey, I was headed for the Sturgis Motorcycle […]

By Scooter Tramp Scotty Kerekes The international border crossing at Tijuana and the well known tourist town of Cabo San Lucas at the southern tip of Baja are separated by a single strip of semi rough pavement that passes through 1,000-miles of sometimes spectacular desert.

By Scooter Tramp Scotty Kerekes A Typical Poor White-Boy Meets Rich Mexican Girl Story The bedroom was plush, and the luxury it offered undeniable. I sat alone at my desk poking at computer keys in an effort to produce something worthy of print. The servants would be knocking soon. By now they knew how I […]

By Michelle Hope I was in limbo, the only thing I knew was that I did NOT want to go back to the status quo. Go to work, give my soul, spend my paycheck, back to work, give more of my soul, spend more money, then back to work… I was illustrating some children’s books […]

By Michelle Hope The East Coast motorcycle rally season was coming to an end, the prior few months a blur of work, ride; work, ride. Having spent the winter in Florida, I started the season at Daytona Beach and followed the rallies to Myrtle Beach, SC – then Laconia, NH. The New York Classic Rendezvous […]
