'Hop Along' is reflecting on rides past and so many fantastic moments.  Reflecting on so many miles of smiles, with a few trials and tribulations.  Here to support each other, as well as these charities that do exceptional work in these exceptional times.  

These days, Hop spends most of his riding time exploring old and lost roads, on a DR650 affectionately known as Carrot-thanks to fellow rider Josh Prues for the name.  This kind of riding is far more active than cruising, and far less crowded.  Hop Ride
Marshalled the 10th Anniversary ride through the Great Lakes, which was a memorable cruise. 

He hopes you will consider supporting the charities, and follow along on the ride, vicariously.  2020 would be Scott's 13th year of riding with the ride, except for that one time a deer got in the way.
