Discovering ride and risk on my Ducati Monster 796

When you’re a kid and didn't grow up riding motorcycles but love them anyway, they naturally come to feel like the juiciest of forbidden fruits – dangerous, sexy, cool AF. I can personally attest to this. I have sun-soaked memories of trips to the beach with my buddies back in high school and us watching... Continue Reading →

Queen City Cars & Coffee III

Queen City Cars & Coffee is back! The past two years hosting this show have been absolute blast, and I'm stoked to be putting it on again this year.

TDC was doing a little consulting with a good friend recently, and an idea for a new TDC Series was born: Adventures of a Wanna-be Racecar Driver. This brilliantly named series would chronicle TDC's escapades through all types of motorsport. Somewhat surprisingly, New Hampshire has a diverse and varied motorsport history and is home to...
