SoloShot 3 Has Shipped

Way back in September of 2015, I learned of an incredible device that would allow me to record my riding without the assistance of someone else.

Baby Steps

I took advantage of the long weekend to make the trip to visit my baby Stu. I can’t believe how much he’s grown since I last saw him! I think that mainly his joints have thickened. They look a big stocky now.  The trainer has worked with him a few times, but nothing extensive. I […]
