Help Support Living Off the Slab

Become a Slab Insider

Our country is filled with amazing people and spectacular locations. And for me, there is no better way to seek them out than from the saddle of a motorcycle. As everyone who rides a bike can attest, there is just something magical about floating over the tarmac on two wheels; providing a sense of freedom and adventure.

This website is dedicated to those who share my passion for motorcycle travel. It is my way of sharing my experiences while traveling in my home town and across our great country. Hopefully, it will inspire you to get out and follow your own personal dreams and ambitions.

Help me to continue this mission by becoming a Slab Insider! In return you get additional Insider only content and access to my travel plans, and a couple of Living Off the Slab stickers for your panniers.

As motorcyclists, we know that covering ground on two wheels is liberating and magical. The sensations are greater, the smells more intense and the landscape is so close it seems to reach out and embrace you in its majesty and wonder. Yes, it can be uncomfortable, difficult and even dangerous, but that just adds to the adventure, helping to broaden your horizons and expand your personal limitations.

Traveling by Motorcycle by Craig Ripley

Achieving Your Motorcycle Touring Dreams While Still Holding Down a Full-Time Job

As motorcyclists, we know that covering ground on two wheels is liberating and magical. The sensations are greater, the smells more intense and the landscape is so close it seems to reach out and embrace you in its majesty and wonder. Yes, it can be uncomfortable, difficult and even dangerous, but that just adds to the adventure, helping to broaden your horizons and expand your personal limitations.

If you are retired or happen to be independently wealthy, then finding the time to travel is much easier. However, if like me you still get up every day and punch the proverbial clock, planning and executing epic motorcycle trips is a bit more of a challenge. Not only do we have to deal with vacation-time limitations and the challenge of saving money, we must factor our families into the equation. We cannot just take off and leave our spouses or children behind. To successfully follow our touring dreams, our loved ones must be fully onboard, at least If you want to maintain those relationships.

So how do you do it? How do you find a way to hold down a full-time job, support your family and still find time to pursue your dreams? Well…that is what this book is about.
