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
I just spoke with John Youells a short time ago. He had just gotten off the phone with Pinhead. The doctors have advised Ron that there was no point in putting him through the chemo treatments as it would not… Continue reading
I just wanted to thank all of the members that went out of their way this past Saturday to attend the event at Rockhill Community and Greenfield.

As usual, IV HOG does not disappoint !!! We arrived at Rockhill and there were already several bikes there !!! We rolled in with about another 9 or so, bringing the total bikes there to about 15 or so. Continue reading

Hogs and Dogs in upon us once again. As I have done in the past, I am putting together a breakfast ride prior to the event. Please see below for the details of the ride alone and the IVHOG home page for the Hogs and Dogs event itself. I would like to give a special thank you to Bill Lichtner for arranging this event with the assisted living facility. This is a fantastic event for some very special people who are in desperate need for some diversion in their everyday lives. So please come out, if not for the breakfast and ride, but for the Hogs and Dogs event itself and see the glow in the residents eyes as we ride in together and visit with them. Take advantage of this great opportunity for our club to give back to the community. Continue reading
