This entry is a little looser than my typical subject matter. If you're not up for a little moto/skate/travel mingling, maybe skip this one! Either way, wrote an article about living in my van in Southern California for two months. Spent some time at ... more »

Some great takeaways here, I hope Guy is considering them with care. Something I haven't seen mentioned, though alluded to by @ShadowGlen, is an overhaul to redistribute content on the "Moto-Related" board. I mention Glen because, after taking a look ... more »
