2018 Thunder Beach Spring Rally

Party on the Panhandle Panama City Beach, Fla., May 2–6—It had been several years since I’d been Panama City’s Thunder Beach Spring Rally and I wasn’t prepared for all the growth that had taken place in that area.

15th annual Gibtown Bike Fest

The oddest rally on earth Gibsonton, Fla., Jan. 12–14—Although the grey clouds looked less than promising, the weatherman had promised those clouds would clear and the sun would break through but the mercury wasn’t going to gain much ground. Undaunted by the forecast we headed south to check out the day’s events at the 15th annual Gibtown Bike Fest, held ...

Tan Lines: December, 2017

My riding for the early weeks of October were cut short as I had to be in Los Angeles for a couple weeks but I did manage to find a couple of cool biker-friendly watering holes south of L.A. The Swallows Inn near Capistrano was a great little place with good prices and fun people. Down the road a little ...

Tan Lines: September, 2017

Well, the summer rains have certainly put a damper (no pun intended) on our summer riding. Although the rain cools the air temporarily, the humidity afterward takes over where the pre-storm heat left off. But because we love the wind in our faces, most of us suck it up and deal with it… On July 1 the Green Swamp Chapter ...

Tan Lines: August, 2017

I have often said that bikers are the best people in the world, not all maybe, but most of us. A good friend of mine was riding from Florida to California to see family. He stopped in San Antonio to gas up and grab a bite to eat. Unfortunately, when he was ready to go, his bike wasn’t. After checking ...

Tan Lines: July, 2017

May has been proclaimed Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and not a minute too soon—that’s for sure. With our constant stream of visitors from other states and countries and those that are paying more attention to their cell phones than driving, our roads here in Central Florida can be very dangerous. Several years ago, the COBB Society Chapter 1 took up ...

Tan Lines: June, 2017

I once heard that the older you get, the faster time seems to fly by and I think whoever said it was right. I cannot believe that nearly half of 2017 is already over. The 25th of March found riders down on the west coast in the Clearwater area showing up to support a “Rock the Cure” benefit for the ...

Tan Lines: April, 2017

With the great weather we have 95 percent of the time, sometimes there are so many things going on it’s really hard to decide which way to head so I just try to hit as many as I can… The month of January wrapped up on a good note with Seminole Harley holding a customer appreciation weekend. On the 28th ...
