As one of the Host’s of the Biker Lowdown Radio Show and a Freelance writer on the Biker Lifestyle, I have covered many great events and gotten to meet some very cool people . Sorez the Scribe is a Biker poet who I would have to say has written some of the greatest poems about about being a Biker I have ever read. Sorez really captures the essence of the Biker world in his words.

Thinking about being a travel writer? It sounds like bliss: sipping pina coladas at your resort hotel while writing up the recommendations on the best things to do see and do on the island – what’s not to like? Everyone at one point or another has mentioned travel writing as their ‘top’ career choice, and you can’t blame them. Lifestyle design is an important part of everyday life now, ever since Tim Ferris wrote his New York Times bestseller and introduced the world to the “4 hour workweek” and lifestyle design.

Over the past three years, I have attempted to eat at every restaurant in New York that I possibly can. While I may regret some of the meals and wish I could have some of that money back, there are a handful of meals that are the best I’ve ever had and don’t’ regret for a second.

Not too many cities deserve such a name as paradise on earth, but Hang Zhou in China does. Too many cities now in China, desperate with economic development, are losing their souls, but Hang Zhou is not. Why so? Nature blessing and human efforts are the answers. One is tea culture, Mei Jia Wu Longjing Tea and its culture village.

As there was a long weekend at the beginning of May for Labor Day in China, so we decided to go on another China vacation to go the Three Gorges Dam. The dam itself is one of Chinas most expansive undertakings, which is located in Yichang set to become the worlds largest hydro-electric power station, along the Yangtze River. Construction began in December of 1994 and it is not expected to be fully operational until 2011. While there are many benefits to the dam, such as flood control and clean power, it has also been a controversial project because the flooding of the reservoir has already displaced approximately 1.4 million people and submerged many cultural relics. The water wont reach its maximum level of 175m until the end of 2008.
