Easy Rider, Motorcyclists and motorists – have each other’s backs this summer

In June, off-duty police officer Milan Merke was taking part in a Midnight Run for Peace with the motorcycle group Men United for a Better Philadelphia. Their goal was to create awareness and prevent violence in the city. Over the years, the group has organized rides involving hundreds of motorcyclists through the most dangerous neighborhoods of Philadelphia. This ride would be Merke’s last. An SUV made a left-hand turn into his path and they collided, reported Philadelphia news station WPVI-TV. Eight days later, Merke passed away. He was 28 years old. Continue reading

Motorcycle enthusiast claims Harley voided warranty over American flag

A former state lawmaker from Chippewa Falls who has logged more miles on a Harley-Davidson than probably anyone on the planet says Harley has voided the warranty on his bike because there are too many flags flown on it, including a 3x5-foot American flag. Dave Zien, who rode more than a million miles on his 1991 Harley that's now parked in the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame in South Dakota, says Harley-Davidson refused to honor the warranty on his new motorcycle after the clutch and transmission failed on a recent trip to Dallas.

Road King CVO Customization Project

Motorcycles are very personal things to their owners. I guess that’s because, for many, they are something more than transportation: they’re hobbies, life style statements, toys or even adult fantasies. Riders want to put their personal stamp on their bikes and make them stand out from the crowd. Continue reading

E15 Gasoline: What You Should Know

There is a lot of concern about the use E15 gasoline (gasoline that contains between 10.5% and 15% ethanol) in gasoline powered engines. So, I decided to do a little research on the subject to see for myself what the facts are and to pass along what I learned to IVHOG members. In my prior life I worked for Sunoco for 32 years in IT management in several divisions. So, while I’m not a gasoline expert, I have acquired more than a little insight into the gasoline business.

Tiffani Liebel – Why I Ride

When I was little, my dad would always talk to me about riding on dirt bikes when he was younger and all the fun he had on street bikes when he finally saved up for one. He took me to all sorts of motorcycle events. At one event, Dad let me ride around on a little dirt bike track they had set up. The bike even had training wheels! I remember racing around lapping all the boys, and it was then I realized that I wanted to ride when I grew up. Continue reading

Judy Macy – Why I Ride

Throughout our 25 years of marriage (and 6 years dating), Dan had mentioned time and again that he would love to get a motorcycle. I would never hold him back from his dreams and ambitions, however, I expressed my deepest concern about the village idiots in cages on the road, who would worry me to ulcers if he were sharing the road with them while on a motorcycle. Dan respected my concerns for many years. Continue reading

HARLEY EXCLUSIVE! First Ride Harley Street 750

American Iron Magazine was given an exclusive sneak preview of Harley-Davidson’s new Street 750 last week, and our first ride on this international model, which is also available in the US, was rather revealing. First, we should point out that our ride was aboard a special reproduction model, so developmental changes are still in the works at this point, and what will ultimately be offered in showrooms could differ a bit from what we rode.

Easy rider on Harley-Davidson mobility scooter fools the police

Geoff Dickson says officers often mistake his £6,000 electric buggy for a proper motorbike. He has been pulled over after riding on the pavement and hunted down in cafes after parking on a walkway. But police back down when they realise his three-wheeler is fully ­legal and only capable of 4mph. The buggy is a familiar sight in Wells, Somerset, where the father of three, 64, has been nicknamed the “Wells Angel”. Geoff has the condition HSP – which means his nerves are dying, leaving him unable to control his legs. Continue reading

2014 V-Twin Touring Motorcycle Comparison

They’re kings of the road, land yachts of the motorcycle realm. Big bikes built to haul the most cargo possible on two-wheels, doing so decked out in chrome guards, sparkling paint and buttons to push everywhere. They perch riders up high in the saddle so they can see the world, invite them to bring along a friend with well-padded pillions, run satellite radio and navigation systems and announce their approach with high intensity LEDs that light up the night. They are a conduit for manufacturers to throw every conceivable option and gadget on as they try and outdo competitors all fighting for a demographic with a tendency to spend big money.
