Doctor’s orders

Just read the Tuff Luv piece. Having had a heart attack I can relate. The guy sounds like a co-worker I had some years ago. He and I had our issues about the same time.

Lone Rider

Sam, I always enjoy your columns. Yours and the Blue Dog Diaries are the two “must reads” every time I get a hold of a Thunder Press. Your “Arguing Alone” piece this month really hit home for me.

You’re never lost on a motorcycle

Shadow, I was just reading in Thunder Press about your GPS problems. Have you got the answer you need yet? I have been using a Garmin 660 from Harley that gives all the Harley dealers, and I just love it. When I want to create a route to get somewhere, I use Garmin BaseCamp and create the route and then ...
