    I get many questions about how I have gotten where I am. How do I make a living, and what was it like in the beginning? In this video I discuss everything from how I started, the struggles and the highlights of the road life. I also explained the focus of my time on the road. Traveling with a dog, battling Mother Nature, and getting hit by a car. This is the story of my life and a description of just how I got where I am today.

    My name is Adam Sandoval and I travel the country with 2 goals, 1. Give back to our community and veterans. 2. Inspire people to live/enjoy the motorcycle culture. This channel is a window into my life and all these efforts.

      My goal is to serve those who have served. That includes raising awareness and donating money for things that will benefit out service members and first responders.

    Scooter has it down. If only he could blog. Where would he go, how would he get there? Probably he'd go around the world checking out things that stink and seeking new posts that do not. Dogs have life figured out.

    Just got my first bike Wednesday and will be taking my riding class this week
    Got a great ass deal on my 2009 Honda shadow spirit 750 for only 1900$. Was garage kept and had only 7000 miles on it. Hope to one day ride around like this! One day sell this bike and get a Harley. They are pricey 😐

      Adam Sandoval thanks brother appreciate it. Wanted to ask if you still used the Bell Bullit for your everyday helmet?
      I got a biltwell gringo S but wanted something similar but just as safe. I only paid like 60$ for it just to have one for now

    Adam, I thought I had seen all your videos. I love watching them all because I believe you are an authentic and positive guy. But when I saw this one, as I was watching it, I felt my eyes well up with tears. Your story, your drive and passion for such an important mission and your sacrifice to make it all happen, really touched me. I also did not serve however I work side by side with veterans serving the federal government. Even though it is just doing cyber security, I feel, in some way, I am making a difference.
    Whenever you are in the DC area, you will always have a place to stay that is warm and dry and get a good meal inside you and also for Scooter. Keep on truckin brother. You are making a difference in the world.

    Im here at work working watching your videos. Im having chills and tearing listening to your story of when you had your accident. I haven't been able to donate and help out for your journey and helping outr military man and veterans. One of my passions is volunteering to any charity. I myself have friends and family in the military this is why following you is a passion of all you do for our military. Im glad you survived this accident and continue to make a difference. Which your one day in town and I can help out volunteering. Once I'm in a better shape will financially help out but even if I'm away I can help out just let me know if you need extra hands. Im always going to the riverside Harley Davidson dealership for their events. It will be my honor if I can help out in anything or for anyone. Thabk you for all you do. God bless.
    We are the Americans. And love what I do.

    What seat do you recommend for long rides? I have a 2018 Fatboy and the stock seat is an "hour and a half long ride" seat at best... Please, anyone?

    • Joshua David Nelson
      Joshua David Nelson Month ago +1

      @Adam Sandoval Thanks for the quick response, but it doesn't look like they make it for the Fatboy unfortunately. Hopefully they make one for the Fatboys soon! I'll buy the first one!

    Adam, in my humble opinion you are one of the richest men in the world. Rich isn't all about the $$. It's about doing something you love and being rewarded for it, the rewards may not be of much monetary value but they're of sentimental value. You just happen to be reaping rewards that are of sentimental as well as monetary value! Keep up the great work and I look forward to meeting you one day at Kriver campground or possibly the "bring it home" ride in September.

    Limited funds so limited choices. 20k on a Harley or 10k on a Honda...so a Shadow it was. Got a bit of grief from a lot those "in the culture." I was a "wannabe." Screw em...I just wannaride! Traded "Shady" in last month for a 19 Fury. Now some of those "culturist" give me grief because I now I wont let them ride it!!! Screw em lol.
    I still havent figured out what changed. Its still a Honda. Is it because its a 1300 instead of 750? Is it the Fury's look...that rake?
    I dont get the division. I'll ride with anyone. Sporties. Trikes. C-Ams. I dont give a flip...lets just do it.
    Cliques are for Dicks...and those who are threatened by others with jewels of their own.
    Accept the attude, the love of the road, no matter what they may ride.
    And ride safe! ✌

    Adam, this is the first I've ever heard of your hardships. I am an army vet. What you're doing means SO much to me. My whole family is military oriented. We all appreciate what you're doing. Keep up the good work and if there is anything I can do to help the cause lmk. If you ever come up to monroe Michigan hit me up. Maybe we can cruise a bit.

    Hey Adam. I SO enjoy following your story, your journey, your videos...What you are doing for Veterans is truly amazing. Brother, you are an inspiration to so many. I am a Canadian, a Retired Police Officer with 30 yrs Service, who also feels so strongly about both our Canadian and your U.S. Vets. I Although I've been riding for 35 yrs, I've never owned a Harley. That's about to change thanks to you! I can't wait to travel your "Top 20"! Hope to meet you on the road some day, maybe at your Campground, to Thank YOU for what you've done!

    Adam - You are, from an MC's traditional/historical sense, a true 1%'er. Someone who lives on the road, works on the road, is part of the community, and is his own man, not working for the boss, not part of the establishment and only rides a Harley Davidson motorcycle as his form of transportation. A true 1%'er is a rare breed these days. Not many left.

    Man you were talking about motorcycle community and how Harley crowed is so welcoming. Rode bikes all my life and coming from Poland to here the motorcycle community is so decided. Riding my dirt bike around street I weave to EVERYONE I get weaves back from all jap, euro, crowd. Harley’s it’s a 50/50 and along with cops some look at me and are positive other half is complete asshole. Hopping onto my sport bikes cops and anyone on a Harley or police hates. It’s pefetic how divided we are while riding a Harley cops gave me warnings where otherwise I would’ve been arrested. The worst is when I went down on the dirt bike and numerous Harley rode by just looking at me and my rag doll gear.
    Harley community is one of the most closed minded community their is. Racing community is where you can enter for the first time where you will be welcomed like a family no matter what you ride
