Easy Rider, Motorcyclists and motorists – have each other’s backs this summer

In June, off-duty police officer Milan Merke was taking part in a Midnight Run for Peace with the motorcycle group Men United for a Better Philadelphia. Their goal was to create awareness and prevent violence in the city. Over the years, the group has organized rides involving hundreds of motorcyclists through the most dangerous neighborhoods of Philadelphia. This ride would be Merke’s last.

Motorcycle enthusiast claims Harley voided warranty over American flag

A former state lawmaker from Chippewa Falls who has logged more miles on a Harley-Davidson than probably anyone on the planet says Harley has voided the warranty on his bike because there are too many flags flown on it, including a 3x5-foot American flag. Dave Zien, who rode more than a million miles on his 1991 Harley that's now parked in the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame in South Dakota, says Harley-Davidson refused to honor the warranty on his new motorcycle after the clutch and transmission failed on a recent trip to Dallas.

Riders want to put their personal stamp on their bikes and make them stand out from the crowd. Continue reading

E15 Gasoline: What You Should Know

There is a lot of concern about the use E15 gasoline (gasoline that contains between 10.5% and 15% ethanol) in gasoline powered engines. So, I decided to do a little research on the subject to see for myself what the facts are and to pass along what I learned to IVHOG members. In my prior life I worked for Sunoco for 32 years in IT management in several divisions. So, while I’m not a gasoline expert, I have acquired more than a little insight into the gasoline business.
