Road Dust

“…he wanted a flat belly of land, a land where you could ride for miles in one straight line. His life had been filled with turns. He wanted to find a place where there were no more turns.”

What follows is the story of how he must win the heart of the police department to drive his home built machine on the road.

Poetically told, and peopled with colorful characters, Road Dust will raise smiles in you as you follow it into the sunset.
