The Righteous World of Motorcycles – By Dave Nichols
HOWDY BROTHERS AND SISTERS!
We are so blessed. Anyone who rides a motorcycle is blessed to enjoy the thrills found on two wheels and the comradery found in the brotherhood and sisterhood of being part of the biker family. Born To Ride is your one-stop shop for everything to keep you in touch with that family of gearheads and moto maniacs. This issue’s cover story tells the tale of the world’s best boss – John Shope of Dirty Bird Concepts out of Arizona. John transformed a faithful employee’s stock Softail into an amazing custom Dirtytail and then gave it to him as a Christmas Bonus. Check out the whole story right here and watch the video on Born To Ride TV.
Then join gallant lady riders as Women’s World rides the tail of the Dragon; a twisty road journey you won’t want to miss. We’ll also bring you a killer old school chopper known as the Glam Fairy built by Eric Allard and Josh Brennan of F&A Custom Cycles out of Lakeland, Florida as our lensman Erick Runyon captures this epic chop job and the lovely Angela along with Roscoe himself of Roscoe’s Chili Challenge.
If that’s not enough, get a great Tech Tip from John Sullivan, Nefarious James reminds us to ride our own rides, Miranda Young of Ghost Biker Explorations shows us the paranormal side of riding (more from this Tennessee ghost hunter soon), and you’ll get a biker movie review of “The Mini Skirt Mob” by Phantom. What’s your favorite biker flick? Join the Born To Ride Group on Facebook and let us know! Become a member and share the passion of the road with over 200,000 fellow riders per week! You’ll find events, photos, stories, trips, rides, babes and a whole lot more. Share it, watch it, be part of it with Born To Ride online.
Speaking of, have you tuned into the Born To Ride Live streaming video show on Facebook, YouTube and Choppertown? Catch Dave “Flashman” Morgan and yours truly every Tuesday night at 7pm EST for absolutely everything you love in the motorcycle world. Then catch up with Fester Jenkins, Mama Dukes, Ron and Deb Galletti on Boss Hogg Radio every Thursday night at 7pm EST. You’ll find both shows on Facebook.
Our Reader’s Ride this month belongs to Sturgis Motorcycle Hall of Famer and Accident Scene Management founder Vicki “Spitfire” Sanfelipo and her 1993 Harley Fatboy named “Trigger”. Think your bike has the right stuff to be seen on these glorious pages? Send photos of you and your ride to me at email@example.com. Who knows, you might just see your smilin’ mug right here in the world’s best biker magazine (in both print and digital), Born To Ride. Check all this and more out at www.borntoride.com.
Last, but far from least this month, we want to welcome our new national advertisers Mid-USA, suppliers of the best parts from A to Z for your scooter, and Metalsport Wheels, offering the amazing 3D wheels that are rocking the motorized universe. Welcome to the family.
We are proud and grateful to be your connection to the lifestyle we live. WE ARE… Born To Ride!
