The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge: an annual endurance ride exceeding an average of 9,000 miles. Those who step out and accept the challenge are a very small percentage of the riding community. Some who attempt it do not succeed. Hoka Hey is a call to action and is an Oglala Lakota Native American Indian term that translates to, “It’s a good day to die.” That doesn’t mean those who ride the Challenge are eager to die. What it does mean is to live a life with Honor, Integrity, Compassion and Respect so if you fall in battle you will leave a positive legacy to family and friends. The majority of this book spans 12 days, but in reality, it spans a lifetime of failures, accomplishments, regrets, desires and fears. I took this Challenge to prove something to myself, but what I discovered was something I did not know was lost.

Join me on this journey… Some live a life content to sit on the couch and read an adventure novel or watch an action movie in the comfort of their own home while others live a life from whence adventure novels are born. Do not be satisfied with who you are; do not be complacent with your accomplishments. Step out of your comfort zone and push your limits. You will never know the extent of what you can do until you face failure.

“Solitary – Without The Confinement” is a soon to be published work through Westbow Press.  The published work describes what lead up to and the completion of the 2013 Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge which was an 8000 mile endurance ride.

If you love true-life adventure you will not want to miss reading this book.
