John Youells – Why I Ride

It all started at a young age - when I was 4 or 5 years old. We lived in Lansdale on 3rd Street and had a 2 story barn out back. In the barn my father and a few of his friends would gather with their motorcycles; one friend kept a ‘61 Corvette in there. They were your typical motor heads - all bikers. The hot bikes back then were the 305’s… Yamahas and Hondas. The guy with the ‘Vette had a 650 triumph. He would put me on the tank of his Triumph and we’d ride around town in Lansdale. I would hold on to the handlebars and occasionally he would let me steer. My dad did the same thing with his Honda. Those rides left a lasting life time impression on me. Continue reading

Women Who Ride are Happier

Freud asked, "What does woman want?" Harley-Davidson has the answer. She wants a motorcycle -- or should. That is the result of a study of female motorcycle riders and non-riders, commissioned by the Wisconsin-based bike manufacturer. Female riders were twice as likely as their non-riding counterparts to feel "confident." They were twice as likely, too, to feel "extremely satisfied" with their appearance. Continue reading

Harley Owners Group has a New Logo

Members of the Harley Owners Group®, the official riding club of Harley-Davidson Motor Company, celebrated H.O.G.’s commitment to freedom and self-expression by choosing a new logo for the world’s largest rider club. The new visual element evolves the design of one of the most recognized symbols in motorcycling and creates more choices for members to express their pride in H.O.G.® membership. “The iconic H.O.G. logo represents the passion of our riders, and no matter where in the world you go, chances are you’ll find a fellow rider wearing it. It’s a global symbol of freedom, independence and love of the open road,” said Harley Owners Group Director Ken Knuteson. “As part of our commitment to bring more value to our H.O.G.® members, we asked them to help direct the evolution of this powerful symbol.” Continue reading

Patty Eastburn – Why I Ride

This past summer I got to make a big check mark on my Bucket List! With each of our Harley purchases (3 so far) each bike has gotten to be more for cruising! So I said to Den, “Why are we trailing and not riding”? In August we packed the bike and the two of us headed to Sturgis!! Who’d a thought?!!!! We planned 4 days out, 5 days there and 4 days back. On all of our trips, as we head out, I always look up to the sky and pray to my guardian angels to keep us safe! As I was praying, a Shinaia Twain song came on that my now deceased cousin and I would sing on many of our Girl Road Trips. So, I knew she would be keeping watch over us and we would be OK!!

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.
