Bad Day At The Quickie Mart

Bad Day At The Quickie Mart
Hey, hey, my BTR friends. I was just chatting with Mike, hanging out in the sanctuary at Paradise, watching the birds fly over the Lanai and wondering if they really get any enjoyment out of all that flapping. A few months ago he took me to the beach to practice my hanging eight in the surf and try flying in the Gulf breeze. I’ve been surfing for a while and getting pretty good at it but, the flying part is for the birds. I kept crash landing and getting a beak full of sand. I just don’t know why they…

Think For Yourself – Nefarious James
Here we are in October and one of my favorite times of the year. Heading into fall with cooler weather, and of course, Halloween coming up. With colder weather moving in around the country, it’s time for some of us to start planning whether to winterize our bikes for the cold weather or to figure out what we’re gonna wear to stay warm. I for one ride all year round so I guess that doesn’t really apply to me. I know others that follow suit but we are fortunate with our weather down here in Florida. I think we are…

The Cherokee Blue Ridge Run and Choppertown Custom Chopper Show!
Welcome to the awesome October issue of Born To Ride! Autumn is here and there’s nothing like a ride in that crisp autumn air. Hey, last month we held one helluva a bike show.

Squawk on the Wild Side – Spyke & Mike
Holy crap my BTR friends, it's still hotter than donut grease at a fat man's convention! When Mike makes me poop and it hits the sidewalk in the sun, those turds just sizzle like carnival elephant ears! September used to be the start of cooler weather, but I don't think Mother Nature sees it that way. Undoubtedly for the past decade, she's been disregarding the Labor Day weekend/end-of-summer ritual by staying on an extra-long vacation in Hades. Of course some are blaming the exceptionally hot days and global warming on the release of greenhouse gases and raising the sea level.…

Don’t Believe Everything You Read

Don’t Believe Everything You Read
How in the world do we even know what to believe anymore? It unfortunately appears that we are surrounded with so much misinformation that it is hard to tell the truth from the lies and the fairytales. It’s like when you ask that new rider how long he’s been riding and he’ll either tell you he took his first cross-country trip on his 1947 knucklehead when he was younger or that he grew up riding dirt bikes. Then you watch him leave the parking lot, and he almost dumps his bagger on the ground. Hearing honesty out of people has…

Rise Again – Just as the Phoenix rose from the ashes, so too will Sabrina Best.
Humankind is at its best when it takes a personal tragedy and turns it into a way to help others. Such people rise above the pain and sorrow of loss to create an enduring legacy. One such person is Heather Cooper, who lost her daughter Sabrina to a Fentanyl overdose last year. Rising above her grief, Heather created the Sabrina Best Foundation to provide support to women and their families in an effort to obtain quality treatment programs, recovery housing, and counseling for addiction. Born To Ride is a proud sponsor of the Sabrina Best Foundation and Rise Again’s 2nd…

Respect & Honor Starts at Home

Respect & Honor Starts at Home
Well, here we go with August. As always hot and miserable but we get out there and ride our bikes anyway. Time for Sturgis, road trips and parties that revolve around the idea of not being able to afford to go to Sturgis. We want to hold events praising America and stating how proud we are to be Americans, while at the same time, we have individuals out there disrespecting our country, troops, first responders and veterans. Organizations gathering out there that hold the belief that way to get respect is to be heard. Not by proper actions or popular…

Spyke and Mike – the Great American Motofest
The heat is on, my Born To Ride friends. Last month we kicked the season in gear and now we’re winding up for the dog days of summer. Why do they call them dog days anyways? Why not bird bath days? Canines are like me and don’t want to be out in the hot sun unless it’s in the water or under some shade. Mike breaks in, “I get it, you gain total relief from the heat during your daily shower that usually occurs naturally in the middle of summer. In your case, it’s when the waterfall comes to life…

One week at Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches summer camp can be the turning point in a child’s life
Studies show that camp improves self-esteem and self-confidence in children, as well as teaches social skills. Campers learn teamwork and are encouraged to share their ideas and try new things! Our camp includes all the traditional activities—canoeing, archery, high ropes, swimming—as well as one very important and unique addition: Law Enforcement Officers. The theme at camp is “Law Enforcement Officers are Your Friends!” Our campers play with and spend time with volunteer deputies throughout the week. This time together shows our campers they do have a friend in law enforcement who will stand up with them and for them. Camp…

Biker Rodeo Grand Marshalls, Spyke & Mike
Happy love bug season, my BTR friends. It's a good time to be sportin' a windscreen. If you ride the kind of scoot that's too cool for one, then you should be wearing a mask or full face helmet. It will keep you from having those pesky, mating, flying insects between your teeth, or worse, up your nose. Also consider yourself lucky riding in Florida 'cuz from Georgia northward, they've got to put up with bigger swarms of cicadas, Japanese beetles, and other flying June bugs. All of which aren't very tasty and can really sting when hitting you in…

A FATHER’S DAY TRIBUTE – “A SPECIAL ONE INDEED”
So many of us remember times spent with our dad’s in various projects we did together throughout the course of many years.

This is a fascinating story and one that you will enjoy reading here in Born To Ride magazine! To start out, this is NOT a business story; it’s a hobby story!
