Wyoming Tour

Riding the Cowboy State Wyoming—Fort Laramie is the oldest town in Wyoming, having first been settled as Fort Williams in the 1830s and “bought” by the U.S. government in 1849. As such, it was the perfect place to start my riding tour of the Cowboy State. Just three miles away is the Fort Laramie National Historic Site, which in the ...

MGS True Duals Chrome Stage 1 Kit

Last year I decided to trade in my 2009 Ultra classic for a 2013 Road Glide Ultra. Before taking delivery of the new bike there were several mods I wanted.
