Boaterz ‘n Bikerz of America Unleash the Dragon’s Roar

Boaterz ‘n Bikerz of America Unleash the Dragon’s Roar By Wanda Kenton Smith   In May, a group of 36 boating industry execs and friends gathered from eight states in the Great Smoky Mountains to celebrate our love of boating and motorcycling as part of the fifth annual Hull of a Tour series, with this year’s theme aptly dubbed the “Dragon’s Roar.”   The week-long adventure followed four previous national events including the original Hull of a Tour, a 3,000-mile cross-country ride from Florida to California; the Freedom Ride, from Florida to Washington DC including participation in Rolling Thunder; Pacific Coast Rush, from Seattle to San Francisco; and The Lobster Roll, featuring four New England states.   The unique aspect of our tour is we combine a taste of boating infused with a steroid injection of motorcycling to whet the appetite and unleash the spirit of our riders. Besides experiencing some of the best roads in the nation, we’ve enjoyed chartered harbor cruises in San Francisco and Newport, RI, toured regional hotspots in sexy sport boats, taken a sunset toast aboard a 90’ houseboat in TX, and watched a command performance of the Blue Angels aboard a fleet of Freedom...

Women’s World By Myra McElhaney Highrise Harley After spending most of my life on the back of someone else’s bike; I got my license and bought a bike at the ripe old age of 59. When my husband died, I missed him, and I missed riding with him. One of those things I could change! Learning to ride had to be easier than finding another good husband with a bike! At first, I just wanted to learn to ride. I didn’t know if I’d ever get a bike of my own. I just couldn’t see how it would fit into my lifestyle. After my husband passed, I’d moved to a high-rise condo in Atlanta. Not exactly where you want to ride a motorcycle! I fell in love with a red Harley-Davidson Softail Slim. I had it delivered to a friend’s house in a small nearby town. We would coordinate our schedules; I’d drive an hour to her place then we’d ride our bikes for an hour or two and I’d drive the hour back. As soon as she got her license, my friend was ‘riding it like she stole it’ as they say. It wasn’t so easy for me. It...

Hey there Biker Family! I’m Wendy LaForce, Sun Coast District Coordinator for Stilettos on Steel Female Riders Group and Born To Ride/Women’s World Public Relations/Good Will Ambassador. Here’s My Harley Story. I’ll be celebrating my 5th year of riding coming up in September. I completed my motorcycle endorsement class at Jim’s Harley-Davidson in May of 2014 without ever riding a motorcycle before. I saved my pennies for a few months and bought a 2003 HD Hugger Anniversary Sportster. I was fortunate enough to have some amazing friends that helped me learn how to ride. Special thanks to Lynne Kottke for your guidance over the past 5 years. You have helped make me the rider and leader that I am today. I rode that Sporty for a year then traded up to a 2014 HD Street Bob in 2016. I also started a local chapter of Stilettos on Steel Female Riders Group in 2016, which has grown to over a hundred members in several chapters. In 2017, I upgraded yet again and bought a 2016 Fatboy Lo from Josephine Carter at Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson. With the help of Ted Brodene and Spinwurkz Customs, my Fatboy Lo is now a custom bagger....

Katy O. Ishee Road Rash ‘N Road Tales By Myra McElhaney   Katy Ishee (pronounced “Is she” like is she coming or is she going?) is known in riding circles by her nickname “Krazy” and has lots of stories where she’s lived up to that name! (Like crazy fun and audacious.) As a young married woman, riding on her neighbor’s Vespa sparked a desire to ride. After divorcing, in 1974 Katy bought a 1967 R69S BMW which she still rides. In the early days of riding, Katy was often the only woman riding her own in the motorcycle clubs she hung out with. She won “Most Unusual Field Event” at a Bike Party where she drag-raced several guys and beat each one. The last run ended with her smashing into the fence only to get up, covered in mud, and get back on her bike. Described as a “free-spirited gypsy” she’s zigzagged across the country living in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Arizona, Tennessee, and South Dakota. Some of those states more than once. She has a motorcycle license in five states. In the early 1980s when M*A*S*H was a popular TV show, Katy toured as a “Hot Lips Houlihan” lookalike,...

Woman’s World By Myra McElhaney   Recovering, Riding and Raising Funds In her High School yearbook, Danielle Bosser Dahm had lots of comments from friends about her dark suntan. Tanning became an addiction for her. Not only did she enjoy the compliments on her skin tone, but studies show that tanning raises endorphins. Although she tanned easily, Danielle began tanning daily at lunchtime. She felt like it was a form of therapy from her teens into her twenties. Danielle and her Airforce husband, Chris lived in California until he was given orders to go to Germany. In 2000, she was a young Airforce wife with three children, ages eight, six and one-and-a-half. (She never tanned while pregnant, by the way) Danielle noticed a raised spot on her leg that eventually started bleeding. When a biopsy showed it was Stage 3 Melanoma, she was sent via Medevac to Walter Reed Hospital back in the states. There she was only given a 60 percent chance of surviving five years. Danielle underwent multiple surgeries to remove the tumor and lymph nodes then to reattach her thigh muscle. Chris was given a “Humanitarian Assignment” by the Airforce to be transferred to Tacoma, Washington so...

Bike Hero Not For Sale – Night Train

January is “Human Trafficking Awareness Month.” Meet Sally. Sally is a survivor of human trafficking. Yep! As an avid biker, she is one of us. An icon representing courage in the communities and people she touches. She is also a seasoned professional model who you probably have seen in biker-related media before. Sally is a true warrior. Her story and what she went through is gut-wrenching. I am privileged to be her friend. Sally is the mother to six children and a grandmother of two. She is currently Co-Director of “Fighting Against Trafficking Organization.” Sally also strongly focuses on her practice as a consultant championing the cause of victims’ rights of sexual crimes, domestic abuse, and violence against women and children. Sally recently won a supreme court case in South Dakota, making it case law across the country, thus giving victims of abuse who are able to prove they have long suffered and currently still suffer from their abuse, the ability to take their perpetrator to civil court for a jury trial and pursue punitive damages. If you voted in the last election, one of the issues to vote on your ballot was a direct result of Sally’s hard work...

“A Biker’s Love Affair: A Story of Salvation”

“A Biker’s Love Affair: A Story of Salvation”

“A Biker’s Love Affair: A Story of Salvation” By Dolores Elam A cancer diagnosis. A fire. The death of a beloved spouse. Anyone of these would be enough to make someone question their faith, but after experiencing all three in the past two years my faith is stronger than ever. I’ve claimed my miracle and every day I see the undeniable presence of God. It started on February 5, 2015, when my husband Wayne was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. I slipped my hand into his and squeezed as we walked out of the hospital. The doctors told us that Wayne had six months to live, and I only had another half a year to hold the hand of the man I loved. Faced with that terrifying reality, my faith kicked in and I claimed my miracle for Wayne. Two years later I was still able to hold his hand — Praise Jesus. By December 17, 2017, Wayne was in hospice care at home. That night my son woke me up. “Quick Mom, the house is on fire,” he hissed, terror in his voice.   We grabbed Wayne under his arms and escaped through a side porch, trying to...

SAFE ZONE Speed kills… and so does slow

SAFE ZONE Speed kills… and so does slow

As a motorcycle riding instructor, I follow the curriculum and never advocate speeding. As a street renegade rider and a realist, I realize that if you don’t speed at times, a vehicle is likely to run over your butt and your bike. In my dreams, I imagine a small town (with a name like Gooberville) where a biker can ride without feeling like he’s the last target at a gun range. But I live in South Florida, number one in road rage for the third consecutive year, where I count acceleration as one of the most important actions I can make to stay alive. Please don’t misinterpret my theory. I define acceleration as having enough bike power, whenever necessary, to get your hiney out of harm’s way. Acceleration and speeding differ in that you can increase your speed to make a cool maneuver to avoid a potentially dangerous situation, or create a safer place in which to ride. Riding at an insane speed is what some bikers do to rev up their Adrenalin and feel alive. They should have more sex to mellow out. Suicide bikers on crotch rockets running at balls-out speed do it for the thrill. They feel...
Look Ma, No Hands! – Women’s World Featured Article

Look Ma, No Hands! – Women’s World Featured Article

A Brief History I have a pretty healthy bucket list, and have done a lot of adventurous things in my life. I am no stranger to being wild. At 14, I shaved my head to solidify my distinction from the other social scenes in high school. I went on from there to cement a lifetime of operating outside the norm, living in squats and sleeping on filthy floors among rodents. Later in life, I crisscrossed the United States in vans and tour buses for years with 12 roving gypsy vaudevillians, performing in grand theaters and busking on the side of the highway for gas money. But in all my stages of life, in all my adventures, I never thought that one of my best adventures someday would be camping on a motorbike. Getting On I’ve been riding bikes and licensed since 1999. In art school my best friend and I had a bone to pick with the boys of this world and made it a point to do everything they did—and do it better. This included welding, fording, tattoos, big trucks, martial arts, and of course motorcycles. With the best of intentions we took the classes and I bought little...
