If You See Kay: February, 2017

Let’s all give a big, awesome shout out for Dan “Dano” Santos in Livermore. Dano had a birthday in January, but by the time I caught onto it, it was too late for the January column. Dano is the past president of the Too Much Fun Club. Way to go, Dano! For the uninitiated, the Too Much Fun Club was ...

Tan Lines: January, 2017

The month of October slid by quickly and we were into November before most of us realized it but not before we had a chance to grab a mug and don our costumes for some late-night fun. Space Coast Harley in Palm Bay’s party was a good time for the adults in attendance with free beer, Jack and Fireballs to ...

Chewin’ the Fat Boy: January, 2017

Happy New Year greetings from the Pacific Northwest, where folks on the coast are still enjoying balmy 40-degree days and nights and those in the Inland NW have seen single digits and early snowfall. My Fat Boy, like the scoots of most riders east of the Cascades, is parked for the duration, nicely topped off with special winter sauce—non-ethanol supreme ...

Northeast Passages: January, 2017

The debut of a new year usually brings me a mixed bag of emotions. Neglected resolutions will stick in my craw like bugs on a headlight. Nevertheless, successfully harvested intentions, microscopic or massive, will reward me like an autumn ride through the White Mountains, the Adirondacks or the Poconos. Here’s to high mileage for all of us in the Northeast… ...

Hazy on the Details: January, 2017

A little end-of-the-year philosophical discussion was being held in our smallish group of the CREW last month. We’re a group of over 150, but with most riding groups, the actual core riding group varies from 25 down to 10, depending on the popularity of the ride. After that discussion, I chatted with Tom Lucero who asked why, exactly, are some ...

Texas Raine: January, 2017

  I have a confession: the only time I go all out on my birthday is when it falls on Friday the 13th because I was born on that day. Yes, I am aware this explains a lot when it comes to my quirks as well as my Harley being named Superstition. For the past couple of years, I have ...

If You See Kay: January, 2017

Here is a great big shout out to Jesse Moore in Medford, Oregon. Jesse gave me a call to ask what the “IHR” stands for. My friends and I refer to ourselves as IHR to mean “Independent Harley Rider.” We were members of Santa Cruz H.O.G. when there was a coup d’etat, and we could not support the new regime. ...

Hazy on the Details: December, 2016

It’s baaack—December takes SO long to get here—until October—then, it’s on in a flash. All the shopping you promised you’d do in July is a distant memory—although in my case, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased a Christmas present in the spring and totally forgotten its existence come December. My solace is that I love to go ...
