    The Perfect Passenger

    Yesterday was a wonderful day....10 hours in the saddle, boy did we turn some miles. I was asked last minute if I would take my buddies girlfriend's sister with me on our ride yesterday. I am actually no one for taking someone new especially on the long run we had planned. After...

    I rode my Vulcan Drifter this morning to the

    train station. It was kind of cool, so I went with a bike that has a big windscreen, though it is not very fast, just a small cruiser. Of course, wouldn't you know it I pull up next to a guy at a light that is on an HD, ratted out, and the typical HD rider, meaning overweight...

    On the Topic of Loneliness And Bikes

    for guys and girls - ever took a long ride before - on the back or as the pilot or just alone? the wind and hum blurs into a sereness that after a short while you feel in bliss, but just as a mute and blind, like a fetus happy in the womb. all there is is focus on the...

    I don't ride motorcycles

    that often and I don't own one. A couple of weeks before Christmas and old flame called me and asked me for a date. We were going to a North Shore Cinema and to dinner so I got all dressed up. It was a warm day for here and he showed up on a motor cycle. These shoes are not made...

    In my jurisdiction, it seems

    that there are a lot of visually challenged drivers who cannot see bikes. - So I have just fitted a set of V&H pipes to my cruiser. Mebbe the blind ****** will at least hear me now.

    Ranting about Three-wheeled Motorcycles

    It was some years ago when I first noticed that it was guys over 50 who were driving all the Harley Davidson "Low Riders" and its clones. It wasn't because they were particularly popular... It was because, after 50, it's hard to swing your damned leg over the seat as gracefully...

    I have a street fighter style bike

    that I love riding in the city in the early hours of the morning. The street lights and the open streets are so relaxing.

    Does anyone out there do their own fabrication

    for their bike mods? I'm thinking I will have to in order to get the look I want. Just about every bike I see uses the same products... Memphis Shields bat wing, kuryakyn grips, etc.

    I got the bug when I was young riding dirt

    bikes. Now I have been riding street bikes for over ten years. I live in the southwest so we can ride year round. Its such a blast to go for ride and just lose yourself for a couple hours. My favorite is riding in the mountains, the smell of pine trees in the air, nice twisty...

    I ******* love riding!

    I'm much better at riding quads but I still love riding motorcycles as well. I love the solidarity, just you and your machine. Sometimes it feels like we are one and the same. Gah! Hate living in the city lol

    I Love My Bike

    i got my first sport bike 10 yrs ago. i loved the idea long before, but since it has become a dream come true to get out on two wheels. i love being alone and blasting around curvey country roads as much as putting around downtown with a partner hanging on. the season is...

    as a passenger for just over a year now and on my own for nearly 6 months. I had always wanted a bike but had never road when my bf and I started dating he would give me rides on the back of his and I loved it. So in February I bought my own a 883 iron and practiced in the...

    I am very excited for next spring.

    My girlfriend and I just upgraded and traded in her Honda rebel for a couple of Honda Shadow 750s. (we had been sharing it) She got an extra low white Spirit. She is tiny so this bike fit her very well. It has a 21 inch seat height and they lowered the shock setting on the...

    Now Or Never

    "The Parents" forbade me to ride when I was in my teens. OK . . . so that was likely a good thing as most of the guys I would have ridden two-up with belonged to the "wild-child" bunch in the 60's. Then came college, little cash, working, marriage, two kids and more work. Got...

    I ride to experience

    that delicate and sensitive dance of momentary and precise control of time and space. The power of 50 horses sits right between my legs and just below me, and I control it with gentle and measured movements through the palm and fingers of my right hand. Add in tender touches...

    for almost 4 years now. Its just a 110cc Honda but its very reliable especially during rush hour and the traffic here in our little city is worst. Making going from one point to another so much easier, saves me a lot of time to do other important things. Although, I can drive a...
