Album Notes
Tim Banks is a biker songwriter and singer. He writes, records and performs his original music reflecting many years of riding motorcycles and enjoying the company of bikers from around the country.

"Acoustic Ride" is an album of original biker songs, all written, arranged and performed by Tim. Good clean fun for everyone! It is his second biker album. The music is acoustic guitar, drums and Tim's vocals with crazy cool lyrics. On this album, along with new original songs, he has also plugged in some new acoustic versions of a few songs from his original 2008 album "RoadHawg - Songs From the Seat". These new versions put a whole new twist on the originals.

"Acoustic Ride" expands Tim's legacy of writing and performing unique music unlike anything else out there in the big wide world of music and twisting highways. The recordings are natural, upbeat and similar to Tim's live performances. He delivers a spirit of adventure about motorcycles, riding and the open road. With a flair for extreme fun, these songs resonate with folks who love the two wheel life. (and the three wheel life).
Creative, cool, unique and entertaining, these are authentic riding songs.

There is a positive vibe in Tim's music that encourages the listener, bringing a smile, lifting the spirit and lightening the load.
Anyone who is an motorcycle enthusiast (or wants to be), will identify and connect with this work.

If getting on a motorcycle is your expression of independence and freedom, then you may find yourself singing along on "Go With the Flow".
If you've ever customized a bike, then "Chromiac" may bring tears to your eyes.
If you've ever thought of riding the Alaska - Canada highway, then "Do the Alcan" will give you the roadmap to know what to expect.
If you've heard pipes that contribute to loss of hearing, then you'll get a kick out of "Loud Pipes - scat".
If you've ever wanted to ride up the Pacific Coast Highway, then "Malibu Blue" will inspire you to go do it. If you've already ridden that incredible highway,
then "Malibu Blue" will take your mind back to that memorable experience.
If you love the artistry, beauty and diversity of motorcycles of all types, then you'll get a real charge out of "It Don't Matter What You Ride".
If you've ever been caught in a thunderstorm, then you'll appreciate the sentiment of "Motorcycle Rain Man".
And if you've ever found yourself smiling that you've made it this far, then you'll truly understand "Still Makes Me Smile".

If you've never ridden a motorcycle, then you may be inspired to get with the program!

Tim's songs were literally written "from the seat" of his bike. A landscape, a particular location, bikers met along the way, rallies, troubles, saddle sores, and other challenges. Incredible scenery, awesome bikers met, new friends, old friends, helping others and sometimes being helped. Life's lessons learned on a big bike.

From Sturgis to Laconia, Daytona to L.A., we ride across this country, cravin' pavement all the way!
Along with his riding partner "Sidecar", Tim has ridden from Dallas through all 49 continental United States and most of the Canadian provinces.
The insurmountable challenge was how to ride from Dallas to Hawaii..... too many sharks !!!..... So......... Instead he flew to the big island and rented a bike to ride the 50th state.... Mission accomplished !

In 2009, the big trip was from Dallas to Alaska.... The Alcan highway.... Here is an excerpt from Tim's song... "Do the Alcan":
"Me and my buddy, we got a wild hair... decided to ride way up there... glaciers, mountains, Alaskan air....see if we can find us a grizzly bear.... So we packed our bags, told our friends goodbye, and cranked our motors before daylight!"

Get ready to laugh, tap your toe, sing along and get "revved up" for your next ride. Enjoy the music of the "Acoustic Ride"!
