Nashville Thinking Man’s Biker & Whiskey-India-Foxtrot-India

May 31st, 2014 · Tags: Cities · Sports · Wi-Fi

About a minute after I posted the 1,400-mile review of the Triumph Thunderbird LT, it donned on me that I didn’t mention it is belt driven. Big difference. Anyone besides me remember the old song “We’ll see the world on my Harley, if the chain don’t break”? Oh wow. I knew the original was by […]

Triumph Of The Will — 1,422 Miles — Cheeks Branded, Intact

May 25th, 2014 · Tags: Cities · Sports · Wi-Fi

  Before and after I bought the 2014 Triumph Thunderbird LT read many motorcycle reviews. One reviewer thought the bird blew away the home team favorite Harley. That writer was British.

No Wi-Fi? That’s The Würst … Der Ping Blitzes More Columbia Hotpsots

May 6th, 2014 · Tags: Cities · Coffee Shops · Wi-Fi

  No, PingWi-Fi. You can’t judge a coffee bar by its dreadlocked buskers. I totally expected to be overcome by the telltale, pungent odor of patchouli … eau de hippie … when I checked out Columbia’s homegrown Lakota Coffee Company. Not so. There is an earthy vibe … yes … real timber chairs, an American […]

Mizzou Coffee & Wi-Fi … It’s Not All About Starbucks

May 3rd, 2014 · Tags: Cities · Coffee Shops · Wi-Fi

    Today, let’s get old school here in the college town of Columbia, Mo. None of that blogging about nothing. No rock or film reviews. No interviews of FOX or CBS correspondents (dig into ping, they’re there). Today, we ping Wi-Fi hotspots — as we did when this blog began — here in the […]
