I’m mostly a city rider. Motorcycling is about navigating city traffic and parking easily: practical, but not euphoric. My weekend with Jim Ford’s RW brought motorcycling into a new dimension: it’s all about curves and grace and smoothness.

Jim transported us to some of the most beautiful country imaginable – weaving through hills and hollers over single lane bridges, winding up and down mountains of Appalachia and through farm valleys so lush and fragrant that I found myself taking second breaths to confirm the sweetness of the first one.

Jim offered helpful mantras about intentional riding and showed us how guide our machines with the slightest pressure – less is more – it was like becoming dance partner with my motorcycle. Excellent and awesome!
