The First Ride, a memoir, tells the story of one man's foolhardy and ill conceived journey on a motorcycle through seven countries. New to motorcycles, he struggles to stay in the saddle and suffers from multiple misadventures on a wild ride through Central America, from the United States to Panama.
I started writing stories as a little kid, but my writing style didn't fit the Soviet Union mold promoted by my teachers. They wanted me to stop writing. It took me thirty more years to rediscover my passion for storytelling, and after bouncing from country to country, I now use my colorful experiences to take my readers on various adventures.
