Travel & Adventure, The RV Lifestyle Coincides with the Biker Lifestyle
Creative RV – Atlanta, Georgia As a youngster growing up, we were so fortunate to experience the joy and fun of camping. Every summer, my parents would take us on an adventure to places we would read about in school. Now that I’m older, the thought of getting back into camping – AND taking my motorcycle along – is more intriguing, thanks to my conversation with Marc McAdams of Creative RV Atlanta! Creative RV is an amazing company whose headquarters are located in Chino, California. “We are technically the largest bus sales company in the nation. We specialize in buses…

When My Focus is Right, My Ride Through Life is a Joy

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…

Broken Wing Won’t Keep Us Down

Broken Wing Won’t Keep Us Down
Broken Wing Won’t Keep Us Down Hey there, my BTR friends, I must cackle that the last month-and-a-half has been a ‘not as planned’ unfortunate break from reality for us. I’ve been spending a lot more time than normal with Mike, and he doesn’t seem too happy about it. I wish I knew where the Fat Bird 2 was. I miss being on the backrest and riding with him down the road.   The last thing I remember is cruising on the Bayway and Mike avoiding a white SUV coming across his lane by going into the left turn lane.…

JP’s Ramblin’ On 8-19
I Wet My Pants on the way to Frazier’s Harley-Davidson Wait … that’s NOT what it seems. Yeah, I was excited, thinking about the “Christmas in July” sale, the pretty girls in bikini’s washing hogs, and of course the free hot dogs! Free food always gets me excited!   But it was that downpour of rain I rode into after merging onto GA 400, and up the road maybe a half-mile, that got me soaked! But that’s alright. I was dressed for success in my cutoff sleeveless t-shirt and patched up blue jeans. At least I was wearing my Harley-Davidson…

“Ted Nugent”
“Ted Nugent” By Night Train© Photos by Brown Photography   I cannot possibly think of a better date to write this feature than on the 4th of July. I still remember when I purchased my very first rock album; “Scream Dream” by Ted Nugent. This is back in the days when music was still engraved on vinyl or recorded on tapes. I was raised in a family of trained classical musicians. If it wasn’t “classical” music, it simply was not music. I can’t tell you how much I wanted an electric guitar! I had music inside me screaming to get…

Women’s World 8-19
Desiree Colonna The Healing Road   By Myra McElhaney At age 45 when Desiree Colonna lost her husband to suicide and was left with two teenage girls to raise, she felt lost. Reminded of her how she loved riding on her brother’s motorcycle as a teen, she took the MSF class to do something she’d always wanted for herself and to give her something new to focus on.   She passed the class the first time but wasn’t comfortable with the clutch and gears she signed up again. The instructor took extra time explaining that to her to make sure…

Eddy is Everywhere 8-5-19
WET ‘N WILD   It’s summer in Florida and our rainy season, so when you’re out on two wheels riding can certainly become Wet ‘N Wild in no time. Hopefully, most of you like me, ride with rain gear on board, but even then, there are times when you don’t have a chance to put it on in time. Believe me, I know!   Well, I was able to attend several events and Bike Nights that were pretty awesome despite the wet July weather, including Fireworks on the Fourth that were truly amazing. The 8th Annual Suncoast Brotherhood Pasco Chapter…

So here she is again, with more to the story that her raving fans are telling us.   Every day we hear about successful…

Is Your Motorcycle Fuel Tank Rusty?

Is Your Motorcycle Fuel Tank Rusty?
Craig Can Fix It! The heart and soul of your bike is the fuel tank. Originally, the tank was new and clean, but over the years that all has changed. If you are tired of cleaning carburetors or think you need a new tank because yours is too rusty or it leaks, I have the solution. We clean tanks and preserve the metal – even permanently stop leaks! The high-grade epoxy coating we use is second to none; we can even remove most Kreem and Red-Kote liners. We have a fast turn-around time; it’s the easiest thing you’ll do all…

Forty Years of The Wall
Brit Floyd ... Forty Years of The Wall Ruth Eckerd Hall By Night Train 6-24-2019 About two months ago I was surfing Facebook for future events. I came across a concert promoted by my absolute favorite concert venue in Clearwater, FL—Ruth Eckerd Hall. A Pink Floyd tribute band named “Brit Floyd,” I knew nothing of. Being the Pink Floyd snob that I am, I kind of chuckled at the concept there was a group of musicians out there with the audacity of doing Pink Floyd covers. How dare they?! There is no way I thought anyone can compare or play…
