Ah yes, to the joys of writing...err, make that reading...or make that a fab hot tub after a long ride...or make that a single malt scotch aged to a perfect 25 years...or, well...either or anyway, on these here pages you will find literary delights from ESSCAPE members with a penchant for the pen, most surely on par with "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance"...'cept of course these bits of literary excellence are hand hammered on a keyboard, sent through the eMail ether, and nailed smack dab into your synaptic viewing nerves...recommendations for the wearing of safety goggles if the aforementioned proves to be anything beyond delightful...

please note: Content for the SCRIBES area must be eMailed to me and must include all of the content found in each category below...please also be advised that the editor reserves the right to exclude articles with horridly offensive material (and we are not talking about riding japanese bikes mind you...smile implied).

"This is an utterly horrible dead C90. I acquired it because I thought the engine might fit in a Honda Dax 70 I was restoring. I then found that this year of C90 engine won't fit. Oh well.
It's been in a leaky shed for at least a decade. It's quite disgusting. It's red, fading to pink on some plastic parts, and with a fine patina of matching ferrous oxide. It's complete, except for the exhaust which was so decayed it fell off when I was moving it. The legshields are cracked. No documents and no keys. The engine has compression and turns over, but the speedo mileage of 46,000 suggests that it was used by a Knowledge Boy with severe learning difficulties

Tour of Duty
[Ed.] the ports may have a duty, but his duty is never done and seldom rewarded for the knowledge that he brings...

"All is well in the sandy land of Kuwait and Iraq. I am temporarily residing in Kuwait and making the long haul to the port of Umm Qasr every day.The trip takes around 1.5 hrs. Once upon the open dessert ranges of Kuwait and Iraq I can really let the GMC Yukon rip. The average speed is usually around 100 to 110 mph.."

"BUT BEFORE I GO I WANT TO LET ALL OF YOU KNOW HOW THANKFUL I AM THAT I HAD THE PLEASURE TO MEET YOU ALL AND RIDE WITH MANY OF YOU."
Tour de Mallorca
[Ed.] A tour of tours amidst the southern regions of the places that are quite mindful of mind, trail, and wonderment..

"All the cool bikes had been reserved so I settled on a simple Yamaha 250 road bike, cherry red fuel tank, “easy rider” slung seat with matching handle bar arrangement. I lashed my day pack to the small rack and was soon growling up the narrow streets of Cala Mayor seeking a back way out to the roads leading north to Valldemossa."
T100r
[Ed.] If but for the wind in the hair and the madness of the purchase, I too would be sane.

"The madness that is GA78 soon gave way to I-285 then I-640 and finally I-75 south toward Macon, the little four cylinder truck engine heaving in and out of high gear as the cruise control coped with the long rolling terrain south of Atlanta. We had commitments back in Savannah that night so the ride home had some urgency to it and as we rolled along the conversation in my mind turned to the wisdom of my purchase..."
