What to Read 29: Jim Oliver's Motorcycle Journey

I'm still in Lindsborg, KS. Today was the Thor's Roar motorcycle rally. Jim Oliver spoke in the meeting room at the local bank about his around the world motorcycle trip he made in 2004. Oliver wrote about it in Lucille and the XXX Road available from his website at: We'll have the book available from the Library once I can order it and get it cataloged.

Oliver and a pal rode their BMW GS bikes west from Vladivostok, Russia through Europe. Oliver then air-shipped his bike to Montreal and drove the rest of the way home.

Isn't it nice how I can legitimately add "XXX" to the subject heading (tags) without using it to try and grab attention? If Jim Oliver went to Nagocdoches would people mistake him for Joe R. Lansdale?
