You know, I've been motorcycling for as long as I can remember.
Not only is doing so a great way to see the world, but I don't think there's a better way to discover the world's best profit plays and biggest opportunities. That's why I'm keen to "get out of my garage" and hit the road every chance I get.
Last week, my bride – that's what I call Noriko, my wife of 24 years – and I took off along the coastal roads in Washington and Oregon.
Past trips have been south of the border… in Europe… Japan… even in mainland China. But the past week was all about getting into America's backroads and the small coastal towns that dot our landscape.
My goal was twofold…
First, I wanted to see if the cultural values that make our nation so great are still there, and rediscover how life outside the media-driven big cities works.
And second, my wife and I wanted to relax away from the crush of the big cities that increasingly dominate our lives.
We succeeded wildly on both counts!
