Letters to the Editors: December 2017

Re: On The Road: Turning the Tide Insightful article on the state of the industry. I find it not to be just the builders and shops. I belong to two local “riding” clubs. 50 percent of the membership show only for social events, i.e., once-a-month meeting and dinner. We struggle to have 2-3 people show for weekend rides (membership 50-60 ...

Mostly fact

Sam, Another great story you’ve shared. Your description of the sight of Chopper Bob and Gypsy along with your scrambled group must have been a sight to see.  Almost Fiction is always a must read. Thanks for sharing, Joe Joe,  Almost Fiction is a combination of fact and fiction.  This one, “Chopper Bob” was about 95% fact.  Glad you liked ...

Sincerely

Like many that read THUNDER PRESS, I can relate to your stories. My dad started me off showing how to build wooden go-karts with Briggs and Stratton engines. He ...

Enjoying the ride

Hello Felicia, Another great article! Look forward to your road tales every month and had no idea you had been so affiliated with such a cool motorcycle ride across the U.S. I may have saw you when they rolled through in 2016 at Powder Keg H-D in Mason, Ohio, on your dresser? Anyways keep up the great work you have ...

A gentleman’s response

Kip, Thank you very much for the article on FXRs. It was very informative. I am the proud second owner of a 1985 FXRC, #845 of 1075. It is with me for life. I just bought a very nice 2011 FLHX Street Glide, but the FXRS stays with me. Thanks again. —Larry Larry, That “for life” thing seems to be ...

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. I followed the instructions from my doctor. He didn’t. I’m still here and he’s not.  —Mike Driggers, Georgia Glad you were smart and are still ...
