DISCOVERY ROARS OUT WITH NEW MINISERIES ‘HARLEY AND THE DAVIDSONS’
3-Part Mini-Series Premieres Monday, September 5 at 9 PM ET/PT on Discovery (LOS ANGELES) – A Harley-Davidson is more than a motorcycle. It is a symbol of Americana, built from the ground up by founders Walter and Arthur Davidson and their friend Bill Harley. But the road to success was not exactly smooth – filled with innumerable obstacles, ruthless competitors and extraordinary risks. Together these three young men, the sons of blue-collar immigrants, gave everything they had to ensure the survival of the company they founded. But just how far would they go to reach the ultimate American dream? https://youtu.be/X3j7DNCuCxg…

Saddle Creek Logistic Services
President Mike Delbovo, A Forward Thinking Leader BY ERIC VICIAN Michael Delbovo breezes his four-wheeler past dozens of people, waving, beeping and saying “hello.” Wearing a reflective vest, he negotiates turns and inclines with precision. Safety first, don’t forget. There is a lot to see – 2.3 million square feet – to be exact but not enough time to take every little nuance in and fully appreciate the behemoth backdrop. Stacks of beverages stand ready for shipping to the left. Light manufacturing is taking place on the right. Delbovo is the president of Saddle Creek Transportation in Lakeland and he…

Rolling Thunder – 1st Amendment Demonstration Run
By Paul Murray Rolling Thunder is the largest 1st Amendment demonstration run in the United States, and every year during Memorial Day weekend motorcyclists roll into our Nation’s capital to emphasize the urgency of keeping POW/MIA issues current. “With the economic recovery and healthcare reform taking center stage, the POW/MIA issue is one that nobody in our government wants to address anymore. If they keep dragging their feet, sooner or later anyone who was captured alive will have passed away. But for their families, there is never any closure. Searching for and returning remains is a valid mission but there…

Why Motorcyclists Can’t Afford to Just Sit Back and Enjoy the Ride

Why Motorcyclists Can’t Afford to Just Sit Back and Enjoy the Ride
By Matt Danielson, The Motorcycle Law Group Many different things draw people to motorcycling. For some, it’s the sense of freedom. For others, it’s a source of relaxation, even exhilaration. If you’re like me, it’s to some degree all of the above. That said, it’s the ride we crave regardless of what each of us gets from it. This time of year, roads are packed with motorcyclists sitting back (or forward) and just enjoying the ride. Which begs the question: can we, as avid motorcyclists, afford to do that? I have the privilege of being able to attend motorcycle rights…

Dirt Floor Cycles “It all started in a tiny backyard”
Dirt Floor Cycles a Tribute to Marcus It all started when a group of friends were wrenching on their own Harleys in a tiny backyard shop with a dirt floor that jokingly became known as Dirt Floor Cycles. As time went on, friends and locals began bringing their bikes for repairs, and as their knowledge and love for working on Harleys grew so did their customer base. It became obvious there was a need for real down to earth people in the motorcycle industry down South, so David and Buck decided it was time to share their expertise. A new…

The Dark Minds of Regulated Media – Should 1%er Be Allowed to Be a 1st Responder?
Recently, several central Florida media outlets ran a story regarding two local Fire Department Captains who also belong to, or are leaders of local Motorcycle Clubs. Before we delve into the dark minds of the regulated media’s slant on ‘Journalism’ we should explore what they do on a slow news day. Typically if there are no dramatic or tragic news events to report, they will dig dirt with the voracity of a drag-line. If you are a reader of this publication, you are in one way or the other involved with the motorcycling community and you are likewise exposed to…
