Liz Lewis Florida Ride Or Die Magazine Rider Feature
Born To Ride Women’s World has always been dedicated to women that have a unique and wonderful story to tell in regards to their life on two (or three) wheels! The month of May has always been “set aside” in the motorcycling world to promote women riders. To me, every day is about women riders! This year, I celebrate 40 years in the wind. I started when it wasn’t cool let alone “normal.” But I persevered and accomplished many good things in promoting women in the exciting world of motorcycling. Born To Ride is dedicating this column to three women…

JP, Has everyone gone nuts?

JP, Has everyone gone nuts?
I know there is a “new” virus running around the world. And I know that it’s in the United States. But c’mon now people, we’ve already been through a lot, and we’re healthy, and we’re gonna make it through this one. Motorcycle events are canceled, or postponed. Same thing with auto shows, sporting events, schools, restaurants, government offices, even jobs.....you name it. But I am still hoping that the government doesn’t decide to shut down the internet “for our safety”. Y’all know what I’m talking about. A possibility of catching the Coronavirus thru osmosis, or something equally stupid. “Stay away…

Nick Amrhein The Shop – Tattoo Portrait Photography Series

Nick Amrhein The Shop – Tattoo Portrait Photography Series
The tattoo portrait series I’ve created is called THE SHOP, which is a series of 10 heavily tattooed individuals. I wanted to feature not only their tattoos but their personality as well. I shot the portraits waist up and close so they would stand out and pop. The photos were all shot in studio on a white background and then cut out and composited onto a grungy brick wall to make it more fitting for the style I wanted to provoke. The concept was just to shoot unique individuals with tattoos and showcase them in a series. They came from…

Unspoken Responsibility by Nefarious James
First and foremost I am proud to be an American and an American citizen. That seems to be taken for granted by a lot of people out there but with that statement comes a lot of unspoken responsibility. Our country and the world are currently going through life-changing, historical, times right now. We are shaping and molding a new image of the world we live in. I got to say this, and I’m putting it out there for the whole world to read, what the hell is wrong with a majority of the people living here? We were a country…

Polk County Back Roads to Roscoe’s & More – Finz Finds Rides
Here is a nice self-guided back road ride through Polk County, starting in Fort Meade and stopping at Roscoe’s Ole Time Drag Races and Swap Meet, then heading over to Fun Bike Center Motorsports and MoJo’s restaurant in Lakeland. Heading out of Fort Meade, you will take what are known as the mining roads up to Bartow. Agricola Road and Noralyn Mine Road are old Florida mining roads that are still used by the phosphate mining companies today. These roads have nice sweepers and are seldom visited by cars. I am always trying to let you know of roads less…

Highrise Harley – 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.…

Let me introduce you to Thom Lillie of Lille Glassblowers, Inc.
Let me introduce you to Thom Lillie of Lille Glassblowers, Inc. A couple of years ago I was sitting on the patio reading the morning paper and I noticed an article about a glassblower who had a studio in Smyrna, Georgia. At the time I was looking for someone or something to photograph and I thought that the art of blowing glass could be a great subject. I googled the name of the glassblowing studio, and when I contacted them to tell them what I was interested in doing I was told to come on up. I threw a flash…

Completing 48 at 60 – Panhead Randy’s Bucket List
This “Bucket List” mission began over 42 years ago when I purchased Old Blue at the ripe young age of 18, shortly after graduating from high school along Florida’s east coast. Old Blue is a 1963 Harley-Davidson Panhead that has unselfishly transported me from one destination to another like a magic carpet, always willing to embark on the next adventure. In addition to the day-to-day local riding and fun, Old Blue carried me on several long road trips over the years. In 1975, she took me from the east coast of Florida to the Grand Canyon and back, and in…

Spyke & Myke March Madness
Hey, there my BTR friends! It's March Madness and that means the end of winter in Florida, spring breakers taking the place of snowbirds, the Strawberry Festival, and Bike Week in Daytona. Unfortunately, Mike and I won't be attending this year. He's still in rehab ‘cause his body is taking it’s good ole sweet time to heal. Mike says it sucks getting old, but I don't know what he's talking about. I just turned 28 a couple of weeks ago and to everyone's shock and awe, I popped a few eggs out of my butt during my birthday week! Yes,…
