About the Book

The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge—an annual endurance ride exceeding eight thousand miles. Those who step out and accept the challenge are a very small percentage of the riding community. Some who attempt it do not succeed. Hoka Hey is a call to action and is an Oglala Lakota Native American Indian term that translates to “It’s a good day to die.”

That doesn’t mean those who ride the Challenge are eager to die. What it does mean is that those who ride should live lives of honor, integrity, compassion, and respect so if they fall in battle, they will leave a positive legacy to family and friends. The majority of this book spans twelve days, but in reality, it spans a lifetime of failures, accomplishments, regrets, desires, and fears. I took this Challenge to prove something to myself, but what I discovered was something I did not know was lost.
