Biker road trip like ‘living the movie’

July 15, 2008 by · Comments Off on Biker road trip like ‘living the movie’ 

SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK, Virginia (CNN) — We were parked at a peaceful, shady overlook beside Virginia’s Skyline Drive, admiring the green mountains and the river far below, when Keith realized he needed a new rear tire, and he needed it now. A bald tire is a serious problem when you’re traveling by motorcycle: We don’t carry spare tires, for obvious reasons, and a blowout on two wheels could be life-threatening.

Keith decided he could make it 100 miles to the Harley-Davidson dealership in Richmond, Virginia, as long as we kept it slow, so our seven bikes headed that way.

It’s been said that a great trip in a car is like watching a first-rate movie — but a great trip on a motorcycle is like living the movie.

Harley museum opens Saturday

July 11, 2008 by · 1 Comment 

Milwaukee – Chances are you won’t look at the Harley-Davidson Museum in the same way as entertainer and motorcycle collector Jay Leno.

For one thing, he’s already seen it.

Harley calls the museum – which opens to the public Saturday – a celebration of the company’s history and the passion of its riders. That may be open to interpretation, but we’re here to tell you that inside the 14-foot-high doors there is enough to educate the hard-core rider and entertain someone who has never lifted a leg over the top of a Hog. (The last part is something the uninitiated might not be able to say after leaving the museum, but that’s getting ahead of the story.)

Bullet Proof BDL Belt Drive Starter Fix

July 10, 2008 by · 1 Comment 

Wasn’t really a problem, more of an annoyance. I love my BDL 3″ open belt drive that I installed on my Heritage. I like the look of it, the sound of the clutch plates clanking together, and the sound of the belt whirling around the pulleys at speed – it is bad ass.

The only real problem I have had is that from time to time I would go to start her and when I hit the starter button the starter would just spin. How often this happened usually depended on the number of folks watching. Not really a big deal, rock the belt a bit, hit the button agian and she starts right up. Like I said it is not really a problem, just an annoyance.
