2018 Ride Prelude: (Friday, April 6, 2018)

Hello again, I’m Mike Rinowski (aka Track), a retired Golf Course Superintendent - and also a published author. I'll be your sit/rep author for the 2018 NVAR. A little history and info about me:
In October 2012, a chance meeting in a Texas Barbecue joint in Nha Trang, Vietnam, brought me a humbling opportunity. Since 2009, I had been riding my Harley Fat Boy around Vietnam in honor of those lost on a land of beauty, and now a land of welcome. I bonded with their spirits during 41,000 miles across Vietnam, and then brought the Fat Boy home to join the 2013 NVAR. In September 2017 my Fat Boy hit its 1st 100,000 mile mark in the spirit of freedom, and there was whooping and hollering beside the trail. My story - HARLEY TRACKS: Across Vietnam to The Wall - is now in print (since June of 2015). For further information about my journey through Vietnam, please visit: www.harleytracks.com.
Please follow us across America, May 15-26, as we ride with gratitude to those who gave, and for those who gave all.
Thank you, Thank a Vet, & Never Forget.
Mike Rinowski
