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…

SPYKE & MIKE Biker Benefit Party
Happy end of summer my BTR friends. Some of you will be overjoyed, some of you could care less, but I know Mike is definitely looking forward to fall. Not the tumbling kind mind you, but every day rehabbing is a day closer to the healing date. Mike babbles, “Oh yes my medicinal companion. You’ve spent a lot of time bedside, poolside, and tableside with me. The doc took a look at my screws, bolts, and plates’ shadow in the last set of X-rays.” He said, ‘I’m like Punxsutawney Phil and you only have six more weeks of darkness. Soon…

Tommy Roxx – The Man, The Myth, The Musician – and More!

Tommy Roxx – The Man, The Myth, The Musician – and More!
Anytime that I get to talk with a musician that has talent, style, and substance, I jump at that opportunity. But, when you talk with a musician that is also a family and businessman who loves the Lord and spreads His glory, then it’s an altogether added bonus for me! Tommy and I spent a nice afternoon talking about those aforementioned attributes. Since I’m all about the music, I needed to start our conversation about his band, Nuthin’ Fancy, a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band. “We chose the name of their 3rd album for the band name. We do a little…

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…

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day
While on a family trip to Austria two years ago, Fran spotted an Almhütte and commented to her father how she would adore a hut like this in her back yard. An Almhütte is an Alpine hut that is found in Austria, Switzerland, and Germany. It’s commonly used for animals grazing in the wild to seek shelter from the weather. It has a peaked roof with an approximate 4-foot overhang on the sides. It’s common in Germany to see a huge boulder on the roof to hold the roof down during windy conditions. You see, Fran has a love for…

How to stand out in a crowd. Confessions of an Isle of Man-iac
I must confess, the Isle of Man TT has pulled me in deep. Unless you have gone to the greatest race on earth, it is hard to explain. Being a photographer, I have thousands of photographs that blend all together in the sea of photographers. I started looking at my pictures and could see that I needed to stand out in the crowd. I have an art background and all the tools I needed, so I let my brain take over. It didn’t take long to finish my first work of art, well actually it did and 6 months later,…

CMA Christian Motorcyclists Association
One thing I have noticed over the years of riding is that you never know what’s going to happen five miles up the road, or sometimes before you even get out of the driveway! Life truly is, as described by Forest Gump’s mother in the movie “Forest Gump, “You never know what you’re going to get.” One day I had to visit a patient and decided to take the bike to his house as I knew he loved all things mechanical. I had just had the thousand-mile service performed but discovered when I went to get on the bike that…

4 Things to help your family if you’re involved in an accident
When a serious car or motorcycle accident occurs, it is often a family member or significant other who is contacting an attorney on behalf of the injured party. While I hope neither you nor your family are ever in this situation, all motorists should share vital information with a trusted emergency contact to help ensure they’re adequately prepared in the event of an accident. Below is a list of information to keep up to date and share with your family member or significant other. 1. Medical Insurance: Provide your emergency contact with the name of your insurance company and your…

The Wonder of the Wise Men – Rob Brooks
Ever since I was a child, I’ve always been intrigued by the account of the wise men in the New Testament book of Matthew 2:1-12, these magi (from the Greek term “magoi” meaning “wise men” or “learned ones”) who crossed a continent to visit and pay homage to the Christ Child. Even now, as a moto-traveler and part-time history teacher, the story and journey of these men is a yearly favorite of mine to read and reflect upon during this season. You probably know the story of how they showed up in Jerusalem not long after Jesus’ birth, inquiring as…
