    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...

    RIDE Being the Key Word

    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...

    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!
