Relics Retreats A Collision of Dreams © Dedicated to Clint
Years ago, I awakened from a dream knowing that my pursuit for happiness would in part be wrapped within writing. Who knew that this pathway would give me so much in the creation of a family who wanted nothing more than to love me. To this day my life is fueled with words that leap off the page for my children and those I hold near and dear to my heart. It is through writing that I have been given the privilege to elevate those who take the time to read my work. From subtle to direct the underlying premise…

Congratulations Atlanta Harley-Davidson for 55 Years Serving the Biker Community
And 55 years ago, Eddie Houghton started selling Harley-Davidson motorcycles in downtown Atlanta. WOW! I was still living “up north” and was only 10 years old. My father owned Harley’s in his youth and much to my delight, around this time in my life he brought home a used Harley panhead. I was hooked! Now, my little bicycle riding buddies, at the time were going gaga over the big bad Honda 305 Scrambler. Whoopie, I thought, 305cc vs. 1200cc. Bigger is better, so I’ll stick with the “hog.” When the time came, I bought a brand new, shiny black, 1977…

A Biker, an Artist, a Potter and He May Be a Philosopher, Too!
He’s a Biker, an Artist, a Potter and He May Be a Philosopher, Too! By Eric Albright One of the best parts of my work for the last 30 years has been the people I have met and worked with. I have shot interviews with world leaders as well as icons of the music, film and sports industries. For the most part, these shoots are fun and every once and a while they’re exciting. But many times it’s the person I don’t know beforehand that will leave the biggest impression on me. Meeting fellow biker, David Meaders is one of…

Women’s World Riding Soul-O By Myra McElhaney
“There was always a need for speed around our house.” Debi Tolbert Duggar says. She grew up around classic cars and was on the back of a boy’s motorcycle since she was 15 years old. Through some ‘bad’ relationships she ended up loving the bike more than the boy. She loved the long rides like Route 66 and riding to Daytona. Guys seem to like seeing how many miles they can get under the tires and she wanted to savor the moments and enjoy seeing the country. At one point she got off a soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend’s bike and said she’d never…

Motorcycle Lemon Laws Georgia’s Lemon Law only applies to “new motor vehicles” and motorcycles are specifically exempted from that definition under the law.

When My Focus is Right, My Ride Through Life is a Joy
Years ago, when I decided to start riding again, I discovered that I had to take a riding course to get a certificate to get a motorcycle endorsement. I called around and found the opportunity to take a short refresher course with an instructor and then pass a riding test in order to get that necessary piece of paper.   During the refresher course, the instructor covered several basic riding truths, ideas that I had never known about in previous years. I had, in ages past, learned to ride a dirt bike and without further training, got a street bike…
