Lisa Gorham – Why I Ride

I have always had a fascination with motorcycles. My earliest recollection goes all the way back to when I was in third grade. My family lived in Kendall Park, NJ in the kind of neighborhood where kids walked to school and played in each others’ yards. One such yard was at the home of Eddie and Laurie M where, under a tarp, was their mysterious motorcycle. It was hands off, of course, so the thrill of peeking under the tarp was always there. Come to think of it, I don't ever re-member seeing Mr. M ride. Continue reading

Harley Davidson Street 750 and Street 500

The Street 750 and Street 500 from Harley-Davidson represent the first all-new platform from Harley-Davidson in 13 years. Built for urban environments, the Street series machines fall under the Dark Custom design and are intended for young, urban riders. The two motorcycles feature the new liquid-cooled Revolution X engine, a narrow, agile chassis with a low seat height (26.3 inches), new suspension, a wide handlebar and minimalist styling. Not all markets will get both engine sizes, but the U.S. will. The 500 costs $6700 and the 750 is $7500. Continue reading

Your Time in Iraq Makes You a Threat to Society

Army veteran Andrew Chambers recently shared the story of how he was sentenced to ten years in prison after a judge allegedly told him that his service in the Iraq war makes him a “threat to society.” Video of his speech from prison for TEDxMarionCorrectional’s TEDxTalks is now going viral after being posted on Oct. 31. After explaining that he decided to join the Army following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, Chambers talked about the positive side of joining the U.S. military — traveling the world and experiencing different cultures. He was deployed to Iraq in 2004 after spending a year in Central America. Continue reading

George Park – Why I Ride

I’ve been riding, like many, for a long time. When I started riding I may not have really given it much thought - I didn’t do it to be ‘cool’ (I’m still not) but because it was exciting, fun and fast. Thinking about it a little more now that I’m a bit older it comes down to, basically, Coexistence, Challenge & Community. I’ve been riding, like many, for a long time.

John Quigley – Why I Ride

I ride because I love the feel of the wind in my hair. Having said that, I think the more pressing question would be: “Why wouldn't you ride”? You get up close and personal with everything you encounter: the back end of a 40 foot garbage truck on a wet day with the juice running out (thank goodness for full facers!), heavy interstate traffic on throwing anything and everything in your face, riding behind an open ended horse trailer with the tails waving at you, passing open slatted hog haulers on Forty Foot Road on their way to the meat packing plant, the exhilaration of riding 70 mph on Interstate 80 on a beautiful 63 degree day with not a cloud in the sky and there you are wishing you had worn chaps because it is a cool as it could get and still be in the beautiful day category. The sights, the sounds, the smells, the appreciation of all around you as you cut through the wind are all things you can’t experience any other way. Continue reading

Lane Bradley – Why I Ride

The reason I started riding is probably the same as other people: I had friends and family who owned Harley Davidson's and I saw how much fun they had on their rides. Mom and Dad used to ride back in the 60’s but stopped once family life took over. Then, in the 90’s when everyone moved out, they got the bug to ride again. Dad bought an all black Road King and he and mom would be off on weekends or on long trips to Sturgis and Daytona with friends seeing the country. Continue reading
