    Don't Look Now But You've Been Passed By a Girl

    I love, love, love my 2007 Softail Deuce.  I decided to ride my own when I learned the view never changes when you ride on the back of somebody's bike.  I'm not some young girl either, I'm 48 yrs old.  Pretty great mid-life crisis I think.  In the 7 months I...

    Stupid Things Beginners Do

    I learned how to ride motorcycle when I was 35. I loved the way it felt to be out in the open, going anywhere the road felt like taking me. It is the closest thing I have ever experienced that feels like flying. One beautiful morning, I got my 97 Harley Sportster 1200C out of the...

    VROD Owner

    I ride a 2003 VROD, which has never broken down and still does a 10 second quarter mile - stock!  I have about 13K miles on it.  Now, I seriously hope none of you fine riders out there give me any guff about a VROD not being a real Harley because it's water cooled. ...

    Had A Flat Tire

    Fellow Harley riders came to my rescue. Couldn't salvage the days ride but I didn't have to wait by the road long before I had all the help I needed. Harley riders are great. I'm sure there are nice Honda, Yamaha, etc. riders but they didn't stop that day. Thanks guys!

    I ride on the back. My honey drives. He bought a beautiful black one a year ago. It's big enough for two and my seat has a black leather back and armrests so I don't fall off. On a hot summer day when you can't seem to cool off no matter what you do, a ride on a motorcycle...
