It's time to start thinking about your spring Texas wildflower  motorcycle rides. We've assembled some online tools to give you a jump on the season.

Munchie Monday anyone? In the spirit of riding to eat and eating to ride, we wanted to re-post out TOP 10 Burger Quest feature. Good times and good eats!

As promised, we've published one of our favorite articles by Gene McCalmont to our website. It's about a dual-sport ride in the Big Bend Country to celebrate his 60th birthday. Good stuff, whether you ride on or off road.

We are deeply saddened to announce that after battling an illness, Gene McCalmont passed away earlier this week. Those of you who've read the print magazine for all of its 16 years probably already know that Gene has been writing and riding with us since the second year of publication, 2000. Gene, in his press club awards winning column 'Being There' spoke to the soul of motorcycle riding, that common thread we share, how our experiences in life are tied together by two lanes of asphalt, our minds, and a beating heart.

We've lost a great friend, and Texas has lost a great voice of someone who loved her very much. Every mountain, curve, straightaway, small town, and the people he met along the way were all colors on the palette he painted with. He was an incredibly gifted writer, adventurer, loving husband, father, granddad, and he will be missed by everyone whose lives he touched.

Godspeed, Gene. Now you can open up that Ducati 916 and ride on without ever getting another ticket.

We'll publish some our favorites among his work to the website soon. We hope you'll find his writing as moving and unforgettable as we do.

(This wonderful photo was taken by Gene's close friend Wayne Roth in the Davis Mountains in the Big Bend Country)
