Jane from Olathe, Kansas is our March 2015 cover model. She is a truck loader on night shift at UPS, a model, and a bikini bike wash girl. When asked about her ambitions, she simply said “To enjoy life!” When it comes to hobbies, Jane told us she enjoys riding. She admits that she’s a sucker for her dog, and describes her personality as “Flirty and fun!” Jane also told us that she’s been told her personality is her best attribute.

If It’s Super Bowl Sunday it must be time for the annual vintage motorcycle show hosted by the Santa Fe Trail Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America. February 1 was the date, and the place was Building 21 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Lawrence, Kansas. The theme for this year’s show was “The Pre-20’s Motorcycles,” and the field of entries featured many fine examples fitting that description.
Adam Sandoval and his Charming Chihuahua Scooter have embarked on a year-long 65,000 mile journey that will take them to every Harley-Davidson dealership in the lower 48. Their journey is on a 1996 Harley-Davidson Electra-Glide. Adam loves his Electra-Glide and says the motor is “bulletproof.”
This year's Motorcycle Club Sunday was held on January 24, 2015 at the Tri-City Shrine Club Building in Honea Path, South Carolina. I’d always missed this event for some reason or another, but this year a friend sent me a flyer and told me I should go. After reading the flyer, I took Darlene Sherfield’s advice and put the event on my calendar.
I’ve been looking forward to the Easyriders 2015 Bike Show Tour for several months now. This year’s event took place on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at the Charlotte Convention Center. I love the show, but I hate the lack of parking. Once you park your bike, it’s a long walk to get to the front of the building, and what I really hated the most was paying over $10 to park.
Living up North, we are resigned to a winter season not being able to enjoy the open road. However, many motorcycle enthusiasts find themselves unable to ride at all for several reasons, including recovering from surgery, in short or long term rehabilitation, military related injuries for veterans at the VA, and even hospice patients. Those who used to ride motorcycles have a very close relationship with riding and find it depressing to think they might never have that experience again.
It is the middle of February and here in the northeast, we have been getting snow about once a week with the most recent snowfalls coming more frequently. We have also been experiencing sub-zero wind chills. February used to be the split personality month. Snow one week, balmy 60-degree temperatures the next and back again. This would happen well into March with no idea how to dress for a day.
