"Two Boomers, a Beemer, Bavaria and Beyond. . .
We thought for a while that we might join one of the organized tour outfits like Edelweiss but the adventurer in me chose independence over certainty. My confidence to go two up on our own was also fed by the skills I had gained through over eight hours of one-on-one training with Mark Brown, a certified police motorcycle trainer who does business as MotoMark1.com in Apex. I learned like the back of my hand Triangle area roads I never knew existed as Mark drilled me on the special skills I would need to negotiate the switchbacks and roundabouts that, as an experienced international motorcyclist, Mark knew I would encounter.
