Readers Ride – Megan Rodgers’ Super Sexy Sportster Chopper
Beartooth Rally and Iron Horse RodeoLike you who are reading these words, Megan Rodgers of Charleston, SouthCarolina, lives to ride.

She’d like to thank Rich Worley down at American Biker for helping her live her motorized dreams. Megan’s first bike was a T125 Suzuki two-stroke.

Spyke and Mike New Year’s Resolutions
“Woohoo, it’s 2021! Mike and I are both looking forward to 2020 being over, my BTR friends. It's that time of year for us to put up or shut up. Declare resolutions, make changes, be goal driven and pay bills on time. OR, just lay on the couch watching TV, accepting the New Year and the new Covid strain as both unfold before us.” Mike breaks in, “That’s easy for you to say and do my feathered friend, Spyke. You’re Covid-proof, so what else do you have to worry about? Resolutions? You're already the best bird out there. Okay, well…

A Spyke & Mike Christmas
It's that joyous time of year, my Born To Ride friends. Just be safe and careful. Most of all, be responsible and do like Mike did, to a point. I'll let him explain. Mike says, “Thanks for putting me on the spot, Spyke. Everyone, please be aware of your surroundings this holiday season. I went to a Christmas party and happily joined in on the festivities. I had a few beers, a few shots, and a few Holiday drinks. Thus getting very intoxicated. But, before becoming totally inebriated and making a fool of myself, I realized that I was over…

Brown Sugaa and Medusa – Women’s World
Danni Benson started out riding on the back of her boyfriend’s bike. He tended to drink a bit and she realized that riding with him wasn’t safe. She learned to ride her own and bought a 1998 GSXR 600 sport bike. Later she traded it for a Ninja 600 sports bike and dumped the boyfriend. She let a friend ride her bike and she was taking a short ride on his when the road suddenly ended, turning to gravel. With the combination of an unfamiliar bike, gravel and trying to turn quickly she crashed! It took a year to recover…

Be The Change – Nefarious James
I sit here writing this article from a back porch of a friend’s home in the country, my scooter parked in the driveway ready to go, watching a beautiful woman taking a shower while her Doberman growls in my ear. What a life. It’s finally come down to the end of the year with the start of a new year right around the corner and I have to say it’s about damn time. I reflect back on 2020 with vision of 30/30 and I have to say it’s been quite the eye-opener. We all go through tough spots in our…

Welcome to Turkeypocolypse! – SPIKE & MIKE
Here we go again, my BTR friends. 'Tis the season to be squeezing.' Time for the gratitude attitude. Time for families to be together. Time for loved ones to be face to face, celebrate, and reconnect. Time for histories to be re-lived and memories to be made. Time for… Mike breaks in, “What are you squawking about, birdbrain? Have you been watching too many Hallmark Channel movies? Been in my closet looking at old photo albums? Chewing on the scented pine cones grandma gave me years ago? Wake up, stop eating pieces of gingerbread and roasted chestnuts from the bottom…

Dress for the Slide – Nefarious James
If you think riding a motorcycle wearing flip-flops and shorts is a great idea, you’ve obviously not kissed the pavement yet Well everybody, here we are in November. Elections are finally over and we are moving toward Thanksgiving. This month I’m going to touch base on something that drives home last month’s article. Last month, I wrote about trying to be more aware while you’re on the road and how nobody’s going to look after you but you. As fate would have it, I was hit by a car that sideswiped me late on a Friday night and decided to…

Hall of Famer Vicki “Spitfire” Sanfelipo And Trigger, her 1993 Harley Softail
Accident Scene Management founder, Vicki “Spitfire” Sanfelipo, was inducted into the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum Hall of Fame in August of 2020. Known as “Spitfire” by her friends, Vicki certainly lives up to that moniker. Ever since starting to ride motorcycles in the late 1980s, she’s been a bundle of energy. The single parent raised three young daughters and became a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Wausau, Wisconsin, finally settling in the surgery department. In 1987 Vicki bought her first motorcycle and then in 1995, she joined the Governor’s Motorcycle tours as the only female Road Captain and ride nurse. Shortly after,…

They came home from the store with…

Ride your own Ride – Nefarious James
Well, October is upon us and thank goodness for that. It means 2020 is going to come to an end soon. Not soon enough if you ask me. Along with October comes Halloween and maybe Biketoberfest. Love Halloween. This year everyone has a costume. Just don’t wear a mask. Bad joke I know, but it seems appropriate. With that said, I want to comment on the goings on I’ve been seeing lately. There are way too many accidents/incidents involving motorcycles and even worse with fatalities. Snow birds are starting to flock our way and it’s that time of year to…
