The past holiday season has been tough for Mike my BTR friends.
The past holiday season has been tough for Mike my BTR friends. Between covid and some unusual circumstances regarding his healing, his addiction has reappeared it’s ugly head. These trying times have become so bad that it’s almost as if Mike has the onset of dementia and this feathered egg maker almost cracked. Let me tell y’all about it. Ever since last month’s new revelation with people and doors, Mike has been wandering around, talking to himself and thinking out loud. It was the straw that broke the camels’ back.

The Squeaky Wheel

The Squeaky Wheel
Welcome to February, 2021. It’s already one month into the new year, and I gotta wonder how many people made those resolutions on New Year’s and have already quit the attempt to make the changes they wanted to see in their lives. Very unfortunate. We, as a society, need to realize that it takes time, effort and drive to get what we want. Not a handout. What we’ve seen in 2020 is not the right way to go about getting what you want long-term. The old saying is that, ‘the squeaky wheel gets the grease’ and unfortunately, at times that’s true. We…

Readers Ride – Megan Rodgers’ Super Sexy Sportster Chopper
Like you who are reading these words, Megan Rodgers of Charleston, South Carolina, lives to ride. Her passion for two wheels began thanks to her brother in-law, who rides and builds motorcycles.

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…

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…
