Harley-Davidson New Softail for 2018

Harley-Davidson New Softail for 2018 – Harley Davidson Sport Glide

Harley-Davidson New Softail – 2018 Harley Davidson Sport Glide

This bike doesn’t do justice to the original, which had a fixed functional engineered fairing(albeit a little ugly), a ton of suspension travel and mid-pegs. It was also lighter. Had lower fairings too. It was a sporty touring comfortable corner ripper(for a Harley..). It’ll appease the wannabes. Not the FXR die-hards. Millennials in skinny jeans and shorty boots will flock to it. That’s the idea I guess….

I think Harley is killing it. If they could bring their prices down to at least within 15% of their competitors they’d probably do really well. Their older customer base wasn’t real good at math, but back then, even the mentally challenged could find good paying jobs. Younger riders making that kinda dosh with the all the info in the world at their fingertips are likely far better educated and less susceptible to Harley sales BS. Read more »

Custom chopper motorcycle interview at the West Coast Thunder motorcycle ride set up area.

For all those bikers who appreciate a good-looking custom motorcycle, hopefully this video with Mike a great looking custom chopper owner, will satisfy your interest.

West Coast Thunder is an annual motorcycle ride honoring our fallen military heroes on Memorial Day.

“It is not about having barbecues out in the back yard. First, we need to honor our fallen warriors. They sacrificed their lives so we could have freedom, so everyone could have a barbecue today,” said Joe Ruiz of Riverside.

West Coast Thunder sets up in Riverside California right in front of Riverside Harley-Davidson. The actual ride is about 10 miles  and goes through and has a stop at the Riverside National Cemetery and ends that the Soboba Casino, San Jacinto, California. At the Soboba Casino’s outdoor arena participants enjoy live entertainment, food, beverage and product vendors. Read more »

Motorcycle Accidents Smart Phones

Here in San Diego California, it seems not one day goes by where I don’t hear of a motorcycle accident on the radio. Most of these motorcycle accidents occur during the morning or evening rush hours.

Considering the size and population of San Diego County, and the large motorcycling community,  this information about daily motorcycle accidents should be expected. We have great motorcycle riding weather all year around and unfortunately some pretty congested roadways around town.

Personally, it seems that almost every time I go out for a ride I’m always seeing someone talking or texting while driving. Also, I’ve noticed a number of drivers on the highway cutting across two or more lanes because they seemingly just realized that they’re going to miss their exit. I’m not sure whether these drivers are being distracted by their smart phones or not, but I have a feeling that that could be the reason. Read more »

Southern California Custom Motorcycle

Southern California Custom Motorcycle

This is an interview with Jim the proud owner of this California custom motorcycle. This video was made at the West Coast Thunder motorcycle ride set up area in Riverside California.

Well, we all know that the most popular motorcycle style is the bagger type motorcycle. Yes, the custom motorcycle fabrication TV shows are just a fond memory now. But, one should keep in mind that a classic style can go out of favor as the chopper has, but, the style itself will never die! Read more »
