Let's cut to the chase: this is one of the best motorcycle books that I have ever read.

The Ride So FarThe Ride So Far

This collection of my motorcycling stories, published by Whitehorse Press, seeks the essence of what makes motorcycling so much more than just a way to get from here to there. See more at www.theridesofar.com, including my motorcycle blog, The Ride Continues.

Freelance writer, editor and translator

Welcome to coffeericeandbeans.com, my corner of the web. Posted here are just a few examples of the thousands of bylined articles I've written over the years for magazines, newspapers and web sites. Since 2001, I have specialized in writing for the motorcycle press on a wide range of topics including industry trends, legislative and safety issues, travel stories and product evaluations. I am currently the editor of content for RevZilla and am the assistant editor of Accelerate, the online magazine of Riders of Kawasaki.

I also write articles, blog posts and other search-engine-optimized text for interactive agencies, such as Oxiem, on behalf of their clients. As a translator, my clients include the Puerto Rican Endowment for the Humanities. I also have substantial experience editing materials on investing, personal finance and banking, having worked for clients such as Argus Research, an independent research firm covering Wall Street, and Banco Popular, the largest bank in Puerto Rico, which also has branches in New York, Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands. At the other end of the spectrum, I've taught English as a volunteer in a rural high school in Costa Rica.

"Variety is the spice of life," goes the cliché, but the cliché has it wrong. Variety is the main ingredient.
