One of the most memorable as well as challenging runs that bikers can make is the annual Florida to Alaska run that takes place every year during the last part of July and the first week of August. The run is timed so that it coincides with the annual summer salmon run that occurs in Hyder, Alaska. Watching the bears fish for salmon that are swimming upstream to spawn is one of the many highlights of this long trip. This north-to-south run is often referred to by adventure loving…Continue

Just got home from racing in my ninth AHDRA NW Nationals … qualified in the middle and earned lane choice … was matched against Cronberger ( a young hot shot with a crew a new decked bike with wheelie bar, air shifter, shift indicator, data comp, timer … etc. ect.) knew I had to get the hole shot … which I did … I got a little too aggressive in second gear … front wheel came up about two feet … since I don’t run a wheelie bar I had to back off and re-apply throttle this cost me about .3 of a…Continue

I went to my local Harley Davidson dealer (ZIPS) today to get new tires for my Fat Boy. "Local" is relative as this dealer is over an hour away from my house. There is another dealer which is about 10 minutes closer, however, I've always chosen to go to ZIPS. I've been going there for many years. Ownership and personnel has changed alot over the years.
Two tires with installation was set to run between $700 and $800. Outrageous, however, anything related to Harley Davidson…
I read an article earlier that reminded me how great it is to be a part of the brotherhood of bikers. It was also a reminder of how cool it is to be part of this site! At some point this site will explode with members. Right now I am happy to know I was here from the beginning.... :)
The article was about how bikers from across the country rode to Chicago to participate in the "Ride to Remember" in Chicago. It's a Chicago Police Department fund-raiser to benefit families of…
I have an idea. I've thought about this for years, however, in light of several close calls recently AND the stupidity of most people on the road in general I decided it would be a good time to table it again...
7 poison darts. That's all it would take. Each of us would be issued 7 poison darts when we receive our initial drivers license. Not sure what the age requirement is any longer..... 16? 17? Who knows, who cares. Each person receives 7 poison darts to use as they see fit.…
It amazes me how certain industries stand in the way of us getting our deficit
down by preventing us from tapping into a readymade tax base. In the late 30’s
it was the timber, textiles, alcohol and tobacco industries today it is the
pharmaceutical and oil industry that are the main obstacles. Prior to 1939 it
was one of the world’s largest if not the largest legal cash crops, today it is
still one of the largest cash crops; it’s just not legal. The substance has
He was riding in a very rural area over the weekend without a helmet since Michigan's helmet law was recently repealed. Living in this area I can attest to getting complacent and "lazy" when riding roads that are not buzzing with traffic. It's easy to lose concentration on your surroundings especially if riding alone. Perhaps this is what happened to this guy, perhaps not.
He slammed into a deer and died on the scene, alone. A motorist found him and the wounded…
I grew up in the wooded rolling hills of South Central Mississippi, and know my way around a lot of backroads from Jackson to the Gulf Coast. From the time I was a small child, all the way up through my teen years, I traveled the stretch of Hwy 13 that connects Hwy 98 in Columbia, to Hwy 49 between Hattiesburg and Wiggins, MS.
If you come in on the north end, after leaving Columbia you will pass through a small community called Baxterville. There…Continue
65 million registered gun owners in the United States and zero have killed anybody. It is pitiful what happened in Colorado and I feel for the families involved.
Under the Bush Administration, Operation 'gunwalking' engaged with about 100 guns with gps on them sold through US dealer to Mexican Drug Cartel..to track and to eventually make arrests with Mexico's help. There is an investigation now with the Obama Administration - Erik Holder at the top of the list as administrator of the…

Happy and safe riding to all! Keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down. And show a liitle attitude!
Thought I'd add a blog in which members could post information things. ~A
Did you know that when searching Members, under Advanced Search, if you type in just the state, it'll bring up all the Members in that state? Pretty cool huh?
I maintain a number of different email addresses. Over the weekend I was not able to access one of them and I wasn't sure why. I emailed tech support twice asking for an explanation. I included in that email a request that any response be sent to a different email address, NOT the one I was not able to access....... Made sense to me. How could I access any tech support emails that were sent to an address…Continue
There should be a list of mentally challenged things RUBS do that show they don't understand what it means to be a biker. Like 1) if you think Motorcycle events are the reason bikers own motorcycles you might be a RUB.
I invite you to add to the list.
Awhile back I wrote a blog about Motorcycle Clubs UK. And while we discussed all types of motorcycle clubs including 1 motorcycle clubs, one of the main topics was the biker lifestyle.
Motorcycles and motorcycle clubs have been a part of the biker way of life since the beginning 1900′s. Motorcycle popularity and use experienced a slow start. They were at first used mainly by police officers. Well-known films from the 50′s that made riders out to be thugs and “bad boys” changed all of…Continue
