Group Riding: 17 Tips To Ensure Everybody Has A Great Day

The engine purrs beneath you as a string of motorcycles snakes through the hills in front of you. With a quick look in the mirror, you see your buddy following close behind with a smile on his face that matches yours. The camaraderie forms because, at just this moment, you're all on the same page. That's what a group ride is all about. It's an opportunity to share the open road and wonderful scenery with other like-minded people. But like most motorcycle experiences, this one is best enjoyed by following a few simple guidelines that keep everyone safe. And that's the idea behind a new videotape put out by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation that focuses on group riding. You can get your own copy by visiting the MSF website, but here are a few tips from the country's foremost motorcycle safety experts. Continue reading

2013 HD Heritage Softail Classic 110th Test

With Harley-Davidson proudly commemorating its 110th anniversary this year, it is only fitting to revisit one of The Motor Company’s most enduring models, a bike that is quietly celebrating its 25th year of production. One of the first of the FLs in the Softail family, the Heritage Softail Classic connects the dots between the 1940s, the 1980s, and the 2010s. Outfitted with a mid-height windshield, floorboards, and leather bags festooned with conchos, it is easy to peg the Heritage Softail Classic as strictly a touring mount. However, the bike lives outside of Harley’s Touring classification, as it utilizes a Softail chassis and a Twin Cam 103B motor; Harley’s Touring motorcycles have their own chassis and a rubber-mounted Twin Cam 103 motor, sans counterbalancing.

Linda Joseph – Why I Ride

I was first introduced to motorcycles during the late 1970’s when some friend of ours had a motorcycle and my first husband bought a Honda 550 bike. At that time I was a passenger and during our rides, I looked around at other riders and wondered what it would be like to drive my own motorcycle. After a couple of years, we decided to sell this bike to buy a larger Honda 750. Shortly after that purchase, I got pregnant and that was the end of my riding days. Continue reading

Trudie Yeager – Why I Ride

My riding experience began when we purchased a 1950 Harley-Davidson Scooter while living in upper New York State. Such beautiful country – we rode all over! I fell in love with the riding feeling and the beauty as seen from the scooter with no windows to impede the view. After moving back to PA, we had a 1960 Vespa Scooter and rode that all over on local roads, Pocono's, shore, etc. The next step was a 1973 Honda 350 cc. Again, lots of riding including trips to Syracuse, NY. There were thoughts in the back of my head that I might like to learn to ride on my own. Continue reading
