Good morning and welcome to another Monday Morning Coffee. Where am I today, you ask? Well, I’m sitting in a McDonalds somewhere between Little Rock, Arkansas, and Memphis, Tennessee. This place has been freshly remodeled. It’s got all the latest electronic ordering kiosks and the wifi will actually let me open the back end of DMX, which is rare. So, I stand at the counter for a while until someone

By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning. We’ll have to be brief this week as I’m trying to make my way up to Milestone this morning from San Diego to catch Canadians Shawn Maffenbeier, Keylan Meston, and Davey Fraser riding before I have to start the trek east. I haven’t been able to meet up with these guys yet, as the travel schedule just hasn’t lined up. Davey and Keylan are
By Billy Rainford Hello from Santa Barbara, California. We finished up our stay in The Bay Area of San Francisco Sunday morning and headed south. Emily and I had one of our best adventures to date hanging around NorCal for the last few days. From having a friend of the family tour guide show us around, to cycling the hills of San Fran, it was a great stay. Not to
By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning from a little town on I-15 called Beaver, Utah. I’ve spent the morning looking for wifi that will allow me to actually access this WordPress site’s back end. McDonald’s internet won’t cut the mustard when it comes to posting things to the site. I’m not sure if it’s a security thing at our end or a way to limit use at theirs. Either way,
By Billy Rainford I hope you all had a great weekend. There was enough racing the past two days keep even the most hardcore fans of moto glued to their televisions, laptops, and smartphones. With round 3 of both the Monster Energy Supercross and Amsoil Arenacross taking place, we were all constantly checking our Twitter feeds and watching the racing live. Also, the were Canadians racing on Sunday at both
By Billy Rainford I hope everyone had a great weekend. I decided to sit this one out. There was a chance I was going to make the long drive to Worcester, Massachusetts, but then the thought of where the DMX Van was going to be taking me in the very near future, some couch time sounded great. I made the drive across the city over to Steve Emery‘s place to
By Billy Rainford It’s nice to have made it back to snowy London, Ontario. You know how they always talk about the weather predictions in the Farmer’s Almanac or whatever? Well, they called for an unusually high amount of snow for this winter and they apparently nailed it. As I sit here typing, snow continues to fall at about a 45-degree angle out our front window. And it just won’t
By Billy Rainford I’m not gonna lie…I slept in this morning. When my alarm went off, the sound of rain on top of the snow forced me to aim for the ‘snooze’ button but apparently hit the ‘off’ button. We’ve been hit with a ton of snow here at HQ in London, Ontario. In recent years, a green Christmas has turned into the norm, but we seem to have turned
By Billy Rainford We woke up to the ground completely covered in snow this morning here in London, Ontario. When I was young, there never seemed to be any question that we’d have a white Christmas. Today, it always seems to be in question. I remember as a youngster looking forward to some sort of moto present under the tree on Christmas morning. Talk about easy to shop for. Wrap
By Billy Rainford Good morning and hello from beautiful Temecula, California. Thank you to KTM Canada and Husqvarna Canada for getting me out here for this 450 Factory Edition launch for KTM and the Rockstar Husqvarna media launch. But I almost didn’t make it… With an early 6:15am flight out of my home town of London, Ontario, it meant I had to be up by 4am to make the flight.
