Road warrior, 82, reaches the West

October 19, 2008 by · Comments Off on Road warrior, 82, reaches the West 

A follow up to On the ride of his life which was posted on Sept. 27, 2008.

After riding his motorcycle almost 3,000 miles across America, 82-year-old E. Bruce Heilman said yesterday, “I’m younger than I thought.”

“I feel about 71 now,” he said with a laugh.

Heilman, retired president of the University of Richmond, left Richmond Oct.1 on his Harley-Davidson with an entourage of about 30 other bikers who rode part of the first day with him. The World War II Marine, retracing in reverse his cross-country hike across the country after the war, arrived in San Diego last weekend and has been touring Marine bases and meeting with UR alumni.

On the ride of his life

September 27, 2008 by · 1 Comment 

Bruce Heilman is a pinstripe sort of guy.

Except when he’s wearing his leather pants, black boots and Marine Corps do-rag tied around his head. You’ve got to look the part when you’re planning to ride your Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

Did we mention Heilman is 82?

Did we mention he’s about to embark on a 3,000-mile cross-country trip on his bike, a Harley Ultra-Classic Electra Glide Patriot Edition, nearly a half-ton of black-and-chrome rolling thunder? He’s scheduled to leave Richmond on Wednesday and arrive at the Marine Corps Air Station near San Diego less than three weeks later.

September 3, 2008 by · Comments Off on Virginia ranks last nationally in alcohol-related motorcycle deaths 

RICHMOND — Motorcyclists in Virginia are the worst in the nation when it comes to staying sober and staying alive, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic.

“While other states are seeing decreases in the number of alcohol-related motorcycle fatalities in 2007, Virginia deaths are roaring to new levels,” said Martha Mitchell Meade, spokesperson for AAA Mid-Atlantic.

Nationally, the number of traffic fatalities attributed to alcohol-impaired motorcyclists increased in 2007 by 7.5 percent, from 1,508 to 1,621 deaths compared to the prior year. In Virginia, traffic deaths attributed to impaired motorcyclists in 2007 increased 160 percent. Fifteen motorcyclists under the influence died in 2006 compared to 39 in 2007. The increase of 24 motorcyclist fatalities in alcohol-impaired driving crashes in Virginia was the largest in the nation.

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.
