As I was riding home this afternoon I couldn't help but think about our wonderful chapter. A quick posting for a special event and our turnout was second to none. I have said it before and you will no doubt hear me say it many times, I AM PROUD TO REPRESENT THIS CLUB !!! A short ride to Bedminster as a fundraiser for a terminally ill 7 year old girl, and we had over 20 of our bikes out there in the cold. Every other club that was there came up to me and expressed their gratitude for the number of people we had attend. The overall turnout was great, but when you look at the percentage of the attendees, we were again the highest of all !!! The girl's father was crying when he spoke with me and he could not thank me enough for our organization to be there for our support. Continue reading

She is a lover of bikes, as we all are, but has never seen a large group of bikes together. Continue reading
Once again, IV HOG does not disappoint !!! Last Saturday, February 17th, Hannums Electric City had their grand opening. IV HOG showed up in full force, I know we had at least 30 of our HOGS and HOGGETTES there, maybe more, not sure, I cannot count any higher !!! Tom Hannum was quite impressed when he saw all of the IV HOG vests floating around the showroom, and spending money of course !! I just wanted to thank each and every one of you that made the trip up there for this event. I discussed the HOG chapter there at length with Tom and he is going to try to make it a more active chapter and hopefully gain membership. Continue reading
Harley-Davidson is recalling 250,000 motorcycles around the world to fix an issue that can cause their brakes to fail.
U.S. safety regulators pressured the company to take the action, which overs 30 different bikes from the 2008-2011 model years.
The recall notice says that "deposits may form on components within the brake system if the DOT 4 brake fluid is not replaced for a prolonged period of time beyond the 2-year maintenance schedule specified in the Owner’s Manual.” Continue reading

I just got off the phone with John Youells. He advised me that Pinhead passed away a short time ago today. At this point I do not have any information on services, etc, but I will make it a point to share that information with everyone.
I would like to thank each and every one of you that had escorted him to his spaghetti dinner last week, it meant a lot to him !!!
I would also like to thank those of you that attended the event in his honor. He told me how happy he was seeing so many of you at the event.
I am thankful that we were able to attend that event and provide him with the cycle escort as our final, yet too soon, farewell to our friend.

Rob Gibson is a tintype photographer who works in what he calls “the world’s fastest darkroom.” After photographing vintage motorcycle and car events, he develops his tintypes in a 1938 Harley-Davidson sidecar that he zooms around with.
“I do wet plate collodion photography, the same process that was done in the 1860s that requires coating a glass or tin photographic plate sensitizing it, rushing it to the camera, making the exposure, rushing it back to the darkroom and developing it before it dries out,” Gibson tells PetaPixel. “This process was done from the 1850s up into the 1880s when eventually dry plate and film took over.
“Some of my cameras are well over 150 years old and I use all the same chemicals that were used back then.” Continue reading
