    Thanks Johnny Rotten!

    Already have guys calling me “Cash” now.

    I can’t post any pics here. Now I’ll have to dig out my old Johnny Cash albums. Not sure if my turn table still works!

    “A little boy about 12 years old is walking down the street dragging a flattened frog on a string behind him. He came up to the doorstep of ‘a house of ill repute’ and knocked on the door…”

    Damn, Paladin. 1st the Japanese already wrote a similar story in the 16th Century A.D. It was perverted then. 2nd if you’ve got cops on you like white-on-rice you might as well make your reservation at the state prison right now. Read Aging Rebel’s book: FRAMING DAVE BURGESS. After I read it I threw away both of my extra internal fixed discs as well as my old Pentium computer. Now I only use public computers – no cell phone. Yet, the cops are still trying to frame me. You’re lucky you’re a former cop – you know, your “Get Out of Jail Free Card.” Ride fast and far.

    I just picked up a 2004 Heritage Softail Classic. Not what I was originally looking for but, what the hell, the price was right and the paint has Johnny Cash and his guitar. Tribute bike, who doesn’t like Johnny Cash?
    Anyhow, the motor was built, screaming eagle cams, big bore kit etc. Runs great! I’m no rich Yuppie so I have to go with the best I can find for the price.
    Back in the wind is all that matters.

    Respect for the 1%er

    If I was getting a bike (or another bike, which would fucking be awesome so I wouldn’t have to sweat where the scratch and time to quick-fix my one and only ride if something happened to it), it’d be another late-year evo. The 97’s and 98’s are the last years and Harley got them right and all the bugs out of them by then and they last forever, run fantastic and still sound like a Harley.

    My ’09 FXD I had I got 87,000 miles out of it, but the fucker was constantly giving me troubles, so much so that I’m in severe credit card debt because of it. Finally had to sell it when the motor stopped running one day coming home from somewhere. Since all I own is a bike, I couldn’t take the time or money to try and figure out a major problem like that – I’d need some way to see doctors still, grocery shop, etc, etc.

    Sold that fucking PoS and bummed the scratch from a friend and got my current ’98 FXD. This bike I’ve now had since December of 2016 and hasn’t given me any trouble other than the original problem of the rear axle (it was my fault for not taking the wheels off after I got it and just putting new grease on the bearings and axle since the bike only had 28,000 miles put on it since it was new and had been sitting for almost a year).

    Can’t beat the carburated bikes. Way too easy to work on, and mine fires up with one click of the start button and rarely needs the enrichener, even in winter. I now have 48690 miles on it and I get 45 mpg (even at 75 mph. Anything over 75 and I get about 40 mpg. Also, this is with non-corn gas. If I use that shit corn gas, my average mpg’s drop to 41).

    I got mine for $4500 and you can find them for that price all day long all over the place. You already have the experience of keeping a bike going, so an evo that hardly needs work will be great for you.

    I *did* put in a new cam (and a *must* even for the late evo’s is to put in the good cam roller bearing) in my bike because the stock cam just didn’t have the muscle to move my fat ass around vehicles that were moving too slowly unless I had a mile of room in the passing lane – literally. I plopped in a ev13 and got a fuck of a deal on an S&S super E for half price brand spanking new and now I can pass anything I want, going at any speed and don’t need any room hardly at all in the passing lane. I’ve had it up to 109 mph and still had about a third of throttle still left to turn.

    The way *I* see things, personally, Indians are nice, I guess, but the cost to work on them *will* be prohibitive (at least to someone like me in my situation), the original cost of *any* of them – used or new – will also be rougher than a cob. A Victory…well, no one has enough money to pay me to own one, especially now that the company is gone and parts are going to be ultra-premium in price to say the least. A Triumph might be a good answer, but I’m betting parts costs for them will be a little rough too, but maybe not near as bad as the Victory or the Indian.

    This is all just *my* 2 cents and it can be taken or left for whatever anyone wants.

  11. BigV Says:

    Down south, NC/GA/TN/AL you look for an older person who bought too much bike. In that case, you’re going big game Harley hunting.

    I have always been a pussy riding, and wore leathers over my fat ass wranglers, no matter where I went. I distinctly remember riding a 103″ Road King and that thing ran hotter than a meteor entering the earth’s atmosphere.

    But if you check your facebook marketplace and have either financing or cash in hand, you can get a HD from a person who has one collecting dust.

    My love affair with HD ended with a TC that shook itself apart despite the balancer recall being done. Me and Eagle financing had some fun with that one.

    Facebook Marketplace in your area. Look also for a Facebook group dedicated to motorcycles in your area. People I used to ride with found one and it has helped me immensely selling off stuff as I’m not riding now.

  12. Shovelhead Says:

    Looks like I’ll add Indian to my search.

    No offense to anyone here but. I wouldn’t buy a bike from a 1%er….wait! it’s not what you think….It’s because they put a shit ton of miles on their rides!! Not a trust issue, I trust 1%ers before anyone else.

    I’m looking for some Yuppie shit stain who binge watched all 7 episodes of SOA, went out and bought a brand new HD and for the last several years only put a thousand miles on it. Now it’s for sale because they’re actually afraid of this lifestyle.
    I’m still moving to Florida, not sure if I’ll wait till then or buy one now. Depends on what bikes comes available.

  13. Sandmann Says:

    Hi Shovelhead,

    Not sure whether you’re on a budget. If it’s not too tight, I’d recommend going for Indian or Triumph – their Thunderbird Storm is a mean machine with great performance, looks a bit… crammed though.

    For the last 5 years, I’ve been riding an 09 H-D FXDB Street Bob with (quite) a few modifications. So far, I’ve put 55k miles on her and apart from maintenance, all I had to change was the belt. Here in Germany, a used one with decent mileage costs around 10k euros – not sure about the prices in the US though.

    Ride safe,

  14. BigV Says:

    2010 Indian Chief with the PowerPlus engine. Parts availability is not a problem. When they were trying to pull King’s Mountain out of the financial hole it was in, they had them in the building bikes like there was no tommorrow- orders or no orders.

    When they closed Kings Mountain, they’d used up on hand inventory in a sneaky sort of way of telling creditors: no you can’t have those parts back, they’re on finished inventory. It was also meant as an asset to attract a buyer.

    Polaris put those bikes for sale from I want to say 2011-2015. In some states they’re titled weird as they’re treated as a 2010 or 2011.

    Get the nicest monoshock Chief you can afford.

    Spirit Lake Indians were kit bikes that had an official title and an S&S engine- they’re now appreciating in value, used to people turned their nose at them.

    Those last years of the Kings Mountain bikes were like a boutique bike- people complained at $20,000-$36000 because people just lost their asses in spec house crash. But in comparison to an HD, it was like you were paying for an $80k HD when you bought a new KM Indian. The people who had worked at Kings Mountain had worked previously at Case Industrial, Caterpillar, AGCO, Navistar, Kenworth, H-D, Buell, Ducati North America. The parts they farmed out were farmed out to businesses that had been doing specialty polishing as long as they’d been in busines. The bikes were put together by people with pride, the fit was like boutique fit, they genuinely loved what they were doing. Kings Mountain was just too far away from Polaris HQ and it was easier to just integrate the tooling, machines, the CNC programs, and move it from KM to Polaris’s division there in the NW.

    The bike has that mono-shock vibe to it, you get used to it quick and unless you’re switching off from an HD one day to an Indian to an HD to the Indian, you won’t notice it. Also the vibe was in the cheaper softail copy. The monoshock has a different ride that an HD just because it is a mono-shock.

    There was a “Night” Indian Chief or a “Dark” Indian Chief that was two tone blacked out, and there were creme color two tone Chiefs. Those were limited editions and they made sure everything was right on those bikes.

    People complain about the injection but they let monkeys fuck with the tune, and you just don’t do that with a goddamn injected bike these days. Don’t fuck with the injection, it will not fuck you. The only time they had injection problems someone had fucked with the tune. The bikes came with a Tune that you could kill yourself plenty easy.

    The bike my boss paid $29.5k for, he bought another for $8k. it is sort of a brown color and has the suede seat and brown bags. It is like a couch.

    I swear to god, I’ll talk myself into rehabbing my left leg and getting back on a bike serious if I keep this up. You people are a bad influence on me.

    Seriously: get a 2009-2011 highest sticker price Indian Chief model in the color scheme you like. My former boss’s will still walk a CVO and has better build quality and a nicer look. Everybody in the chapter wanted to ride that motherfucker and those who did had the Indian jones. Just one fix for an Indian jones…

  15. stroker Says:

    Like Big V, I recommend a Victory or Indian. Now, of course, you can only get used Victories, but you can buy new or used Indians. Both have a very similar engine, first designed for Victory. My 2014 Victory Cross-Country now has 45k on it, and it’s been virtually trouble free (I did have to change a headlamp bulb in Durango this year!). If my Vic keeps the promise of 150 to 200k trouble-free miles (what Victory used to advertise), then I’m good. So far, it’s been just a sweet bike. Out-runs stock Harleys, and gives the pumped up ones a run for the money! And if I can’t pass or stay ahead of the Harleys on the straights, I can and will eat ’em up in the twisties! Good machines.

    Sunnyside up!

  16. FF Says:

    Shovelhead, I ride a completely stripped down and rebuilt ’86 Sportster with a few, slight modifications. I’ve always loved Sportsters, Ironheads, Choppers, Bobbers from watching Biker Exploitation flicks from the 60’s. I had so many opportunities to trade the bike in but never did. I guess today I’m stuck with it. That’s ok. Right now I’m looking for a 2nd bike for both me and my wife. Not looking to spend more than $5 K so that pretty much rules out any “new” model of HD or any of the other copycats.

    I hope the next 50 years of your life are as wonderful an experience as the last 50.

  17. Cap'n Bill Says:

    @ shovelhead
    I have a 2004 RK with 30000 & a 2007 FXSTC with 77000. I’m in west Tn. and would like to sell one or both. Get info from Rebel if interested

  18. Shovelhead Says:

    Are you talking about the last year Indian before Polaris bought them? What exact years do you like the best?
    I love the looks of the Indian, just don’t know anything about them.

  19. BigV Says:

    If I get out of physical therapy with a clearance to get properly licensed and insured for a NC motorcycle endorsement, I’d get a last year or next to last year King’s Mountain NC Indian.

    They had the uni-shock softail style frame- it’s easy on your ass and your left hip and ankle. The engine is rooted in the Evolution but it’s light years beyond what HD did with the TC.

    The transmission shifts very easily, the highway pegs actually make it to where you can cruise and if something comes up your way, your reaction time coupled with the shifter and rear brake means one thing: you’re fairly safe.

    I’d buy a used Victory before I’d buy another damned Hardly Ableson.

    You can build a bike far superior to an HD and know what it’s in it, but with the market for Indian and Victory bikes what they are- why fuck with it ? I’ve got 3 custom builds titled under my name- I was told by the state inspector that the next bike I built had to conform to all US DOT requirements and all emissions requirements as well, as my previous bikes used up my “exceptions” to EPA Standards.

    I loved the styling on the last year of the Indians. I thought that American Iron did a shit job on their Indian review(surprise given HD’s ad revenue). The bike that was available on short notice for testing was an older model and it was an intentionally stripped down bike for people to see what their base bike was like. They never followed up with the promised 2010 Chief Deluxe with the uni-shock softail(best frame I’ve ever ridden). The seats on the 2009-2010 bikes were not just a brown leather single seater- they were two up available in a suede that didn’t crack or burn your ass off, a brown that faded beautifully over time, or a black- all were very supportive to your lower back and tailbone.

    My boss and sponsor bought one new and his leg was in a cast. We drove the break-down van out to K-M to pick it up. I got to break it in and ride it home. Going into the Nantahala from Swain there was a Kenworth balling jack trying to get to where the road goes from 4 lanes to two there as you turn off to Stecoah or go straight through the Nantahala. I blew by his ass like he was standing still, and our Sprinter breakdown van never could make a solid pass at him.

    Bike was steady, wind shear around it didn’t fuck with stability, it never got rocky, faster your got, the steadier it seemed. I’d sworn I’d never own a damned Polaris anything but when they bought Indian, my mind was changed. I’d have killed for a chance to have bought one of the last year Chiefs that were in FI and never sent to showrooms, and then they sold them as collectors bikes.

    There was a dude that rode with us named Otter who had a PP-110 and it had a cam, exhaust, a tune, and it walked several of the Harley performance bikes

  20. white witch Says:

    @shovelhead, I have been riding a HD since 1977. I have owned only 4 bikes since then. a 75 sporty was my first, next was a 88 superglide FXR still the best bike I ever owned. rode it till engine blew at 187k bought a 03 superglide FXD put 98k on it before it blew. current ride is a 13 road king that I have put 43k on great bike.
    Luv that 6 speed tranny. worst one was the 03 FXD main bearing out at 28k and then busted crankshaft at 98k. Sold it to a Sons of Anarchy fan since it resembled the ones they were using on the show and he had to have it. luv the RK but miss my old evo, maybe I just miss that time of my life. The new HD’s are way over priced if you ask me. I would look around for a 3-4 year old RK from some RUB who puts 100 miles a year on it and now is on to the next fad. The market is going to be flush with used HD’s with low miles and good prices.

    ride free

  21. The Kraut Says:

    Hey Shovelhead! Sorry to her you’re letting the old shovel go, but I understand…I like the name ya gave, “troublehead”.

    My current Hardly Dangerous is an ’84 FXST, stock for the most part…an Evo, but runs tight and the compression is good. Got 44XXX on it…pretty sure its the original speedo as its the 85mph one.

    My other non-cage is a 2007 Ural Gear Up…”Stalins Revenge”
    Fuckin’ commie bike breaks more than an AMF sporty…least it did ’til I fixed the fucker.

    I’d highly recommend an EVO…good runners with potential to mod and dependable.

    Ride safe and knees inna breeze!

    Respect to those who warrant respect

  22. Paladin Says:

    @ Shovelhead;

    If I were to get a new bike, it would be an Indian.

    Long May You Ride,


  23. Shovelhead Says:

    Time to upgrade rides. Bought my first Shovelhead in 1979. Was a ’66 Electraglide, of course that’s what Harley made then, no Evo’s yet.
    Just sold my old ’73 flh. Done with the troubleheads. Now for something new! Not sure what, I’ve always liked the Road Kings, so maybe a newer one. Just push the button and go.
    I will always love the old bikes and the old ways, just time for a change.

    Curious what you folks are riding.

  24. SB Apollo Says:

    Ode on Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood
    William Wordsworth – 1770-1850

    There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
    The earth, and every common sight
    To me did seem
    Apparelled in celestial light,
    The glory and the freshness of a dream.
    It is not now as it hath been of yore;—
    Turn wheresoe’er I may,
    By night or day,
    The things which I have seen I now can see no more.

    The rainbow comes and goes,
    And lovely is the rose;
    The moon doth with delight
    Look round her when the heavens are bare;
    Waters on a starry night
    Are beautiful and fair;
    The sunshine is a glorious birth;
    But yet I know, where’er I go,
    That there hath past away a glory from the earth.

    Now, while the birds thus sing a joyous song,
    And while the young lambs bound
    As to the tabor’s sound,
    To me alone there came a thought of grief:
    A timely utterance gave that thought relief,
    And I again am strong.
    The cataracts blow their trumpets from the steep,—
    No more shall grief of mine the season wrong:
    I hear the echoes through the mountains throng.
    The winds come to me from the fields of sleep,
    And all the earth is gay;
    Land and sea
    Give themselves up to jollity,
    And with the heart of May
    Doth every beast keep holiday;—
    Thou child of joy,
    Shout round me, let me hear thy shouts, thou happy
    Ye blesséd Creatures, I have heard the call
    Ye to each other make; I see
    The heavens laugh with you in your jubilee;
    My heart is at your festival,
    My head hath its coronal,
    The fulness of your bliss, I feel—I feel it all.
    O evil day! if I were sullen
    While Earth herself is adorning
    This sweet May-morning;
    And the children are culling
    On every side
    In a thousand valleys far and wide
    Fresh flowers; while the sun shines warm,
    And the babe leaps up on his mother’s arm:—
    I hear, I hear, with joy I hear!
    —But there’s a tree, of many, one,
    A single field which I have look’d upon,
    Both of them speak of something that is gone:
    The pansy at my feet
    Doth the same tale repeat:
    Whither is fled the visionary gleam?
    Where is it now, the glory and the dream?

    Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting;
    The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
    Hath had elsewhere its setting
    And cometh from afar;
    Not in entire forgetfulness,
    And not in utter nakedness,
    But trailing clouds of glory do we come
    From God, who is our home:
    Heaven lies about us in our infancy!
    Shades of the prison-house begin to close
    Upon the growing Boy,
    But he beholds the light, and whence it flows,
    He sees it in his joy;
    The Youth, who daily farther from the east
    Must travel, still is Nature’s priest,
    And by the vision splendid
    Is on his way attended;
    At length the Man perceives it die away,
    And fade into the light of common day.

    Earth fills her lap with pleasures of her own;
    Yearnings she hath in her own natural kind,
    And, even with something of a mother’s mind,
    And no unworthy aim,
    The homely nurse doth all she can
    To make her foster-child, her inmate, Man,
    Forget the glories he hath known,
    And that imperial palace whence he came.

    Behold the Child among his new-born blisses,
    A six years’ darling of a pigmy size!
    See, where ‘mid work of his own hand he lies,
    Fretted by sallies of his mother’s kisses,
    With light upon him from his father’s eyes!
    See, at his feet, some little plan or chart,
    Some fragment from his dream of human life,
    Shaped by himself with newly-learned art;
    A wedding or a festival,
    A mourning or a funeral;
    And this hath now his heart,
    And unto this he frames his song:
    Then will he fit his tongue
    To dialogues of business, love, or strife;
    But it will not be long
    Ere this be thrown aside,
    And with new joy and pride
    The little actor cons another part;
    Filling from time to time his ‘humorous stage’
    With all the Persons, down to palsied Age,
    That life brings with her in her equipage;
    As if his whole vocation
    Were endless imitation.

    Thou, whose exterior semblance doth belie
    Thy soul’s immensity;
    Thou best philosopher, who yet dost keep
    Thy heritage, thou eye among the blind,
    That, deaf and silent, read’st the eternal deep,
    Haunted for ever by the eternal Mind,—
    Mighty Prophet! Seer blest!
    On whom those truths rest
    Which we are toiling all our lives to find,
    In darkness lost, the darkness of the grave;
    Thou, over whom thy Immortality
    Broods like the day, a master o’er a slave,
    A Presence which is not to be put by;
    To whom the grave
    Is but a lonely bed, without the sense of sight
    Of day or the warm light,
    A place of thoughts where we in waiting lie;
    Thou little child, yet glorious in the might
    Of heaven-born freedom on thy being’s height,
    Why with such earnest pains dost thou provoke
    The years to bring the inevitable yoke,
    Thus blindly with thy blessedness at strife?
    Full soon thy soul shall have her earthly freight,
    And custom lie upon thee with a weight
    Heavy as frost, and deep almost as life!
    0 joy! that in our embers
    Is something that doth live,
    That Nature yet remembers
    What was so fugitive!
    The thought of our past years in me doth breed
    Perpetual benediction: not indeed
    For that which is most worthy to be blest,
    Delight and liberty, the simple creed
    Of Childhood, whether busy or at rest,
    With new-fledged hope still fluttering in his breast:—
    —Not for these I raise
    The song of thanks and praise;
    But for those obstinate questionings
    Of sense and outward things,
    Fallings from us, vanishings,
    Blank misgivings of a creature
    Moving about in worlds not realized,
    High instincts, before which our mortal nature
    Did tremble like a guilty thing surprised:
    But for those first affections,
    Those shadowy recollections,
    Which, be they what they may,
    Are yet the fountain-light of all our day,
    Are yet a master-light of all our seeing;
    Uphold us—cherish—and have power to make
    Our noisy years seem moments in the being
    Of the eternal Silence: truths that wake,
    To perish never;
    Which neither listlessness, nor mad endeavour,
    Nor man nor boy,
    Nor all that is at enmity with joy,
    Can utterly abolish or destroy!
    Hence, in a season of calm weather
    Though inland far we be,
    Our souls have sight of that immortal sea
    Which brought us hither;
    Can in a moment travel thither—
    And see the children sport upon the shore,
    And hear the mighty waters rolling evermore.

    Then, sing, ye birds, sing, sing a joyous song!
    And let the young lambs bound
    As to the tabor’s sound!
    We, in thought, will join your throng,
    Ye that pipe and ye that play,
    Ye that through your hearts to-day
    Feel the gladness of the May!
    What though the radiance which was once so bright
    Be now for ever taken from my sight,
    Though nothing can bring back the hour
    Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
    We will grieve not, rather find
    Strength in what remains behind;
    In the primal sympathy
    Which having been must ever be;
    In the soothing thoughts that spring
    Out of human suffering;
    In the faith that looks through death,
    In years that bring the philosophic mind.

    And 0, ye Fountains, Meadows, Hills, and Groves,
    Forebode not any severing of our loves!
    Yet in my heart of hearts I feel your might;
    I only have relinquish’d one delight
    To live beneath your more habitual sway;
    I love the brooks which down their channels fret
    Even more than when I tripp’d lightly as they;
    The innocent brightness of a new-born day
    Is lovely yet;
    The clouds that gather round the setting sun
    Do take a sober colouring from an eye
    That hath kept watch o’er man’s mortality;
    Another race hath been, and other palms are won.
    Thanks to the human heart by which we live,
    Thanks to its tenderness, its joys, and fears,
    To me the meanest flower that blows can give
    Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.

    A little boy about 12 years old is walking down the street dragging a flattened frog on a string behind him. He came up to the doorstep of ‘a house of ill repute’ and knocked on the door.

    When the Madam answered it, she saw the little boy and asked what he wanted. He said, “I want to have sex with one of the women inside. I have the money to buy it, and I’m not leaving until I get it.”

    The Madam figured, why not, so she told him to come in. Once in, she told him to pick any of the girls he liked. He asked, ‘Do any of the girls have any diseases? Of course the Madam said “No”.

    The boy said, ‘I heard all the men talking about having to get shots after making love with Amber – THAT’S the girl I want.’
    Since the little boy was so adamant and had the money to pay for it the Madam told him to go to the first room on the right.

    He headed down the hall dragging the squashed frog behind him. Ten minutes later he came back, still dragging the frog, paid the Madam, and headed out the door. The Madam stopped him and asked, ‘Why did you pick the only girl in the place with a disease, instead of one of the others?’

    He said, “Well, if you must know, tonight when I get home, my parents are going out to a restaurant to eat, leaving me at home with a baby-sitter. After they leave, my baby-sitter will have sex with me because she just happens to be very fond of cute little boys. She will then get the disease that I just caught. When Mum and Dad get back, Dad will take the baby-sitter home. On the way, he’ll give her one in the car and he’ll catch the disease. Then, when Dad gets home from the baby-sitter’s, he and Mum will go to bed and have sex, and Mum will catch it. In the morning when Dad goes to work, the Milkman will deliver the milk, have a quickie with Mum and catch the disease and HE’S the prick who ran over my FROG!”

    Just stopped in to see what condition my condition was in….

    Smoking one up! Thunderstorm is coming. That should be interesting in my current state of mind.

    This shit makes me think of simpler times, like when I’d call a buddy on the rotary phone to get his ass over here cause I just picked up a bag.

    Smokin the night away, listening to tunes, talkin shit with yer Brothers.
    Who’s gonna make a munchies run? Get some beer too!

    To any pigs,lawyers,congressmen or especially judges who use the expression “it’s the law”, while forcing people to obey “them”, please read the following historical conversation.

    Satan as an archangel made himself completely objectionable and was finally expelled from heaven. Halfway in his descent he paused, bent his head in thought a moment and at last went back.

    “There is one favor that I would like to ask”, said he.

    “Name it”.

    “Man, I understand is about to be created. He will need laws”.

    “You his appointed adversary, charged from the dawn of eternity with hatred of his soul — you ask for the right to make his laws?”

    “Pardon; what I have to ask is that he be permitted to make them himself.”

    It was so ordered.

  29. Tooj Says:

    Hey folks, I’m sure you’re up to date with the usual political tomfoolery going on.

    Latest news is that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is putting up a new bill to send massive aid to Brazil. It seems she heard a news report stating that three Brazilian skydivers died in a freak accident.

    She’s not entirely sure how much a brazilian is, but is absolutey certain it is a LOT.

    @ BigV

    Nice piece of property you have there. Looks like one might be able to operate an LSA (light Sport Aircraft) from the property. You mention assholes to the south and East of the property. Are these real assholes or are you using that term as a generality? And as always, long may you ride.


  31. Penguin Says:

    Never been to the South, but I know what y’all are saying about old and cold weather.

    C’mon Summertime and those Northern California back mountain twisties, more or less copfreezones and tacky local watering holes in tiny “towns” (villages more like)
    Like Ono and Igo, Peanut and such spots…and the Bikes to the Bay motorcycle drags at Eureka… Which have run-whatcha-brung for free, at the end of the day.

    The cold gets deeper every year…bummer! (bettern dead tho)

  32. BigV Says:

    Shovelhead or anyone looking to be a halfback: 24.xx acres in Towns County GA for $170k or best offer. Nice views. About 6 acrews in timber.

    One asshole to your right, one asshole to the south.

    Direct access to Gumlog Rd, state right of way.

    It is my momma’s. I profit NOTHING from this. If a like minded individual to myself or organization with ideas similar to myself bought it, my momma would be thrilled(honest to god).

    Move to the Mountains Boys ! More Lakes than you can count on two hands, 19/129, Cherohala Skyway, Little Snow Bird, Big Snow Bird, Brasstown Bald, Richard Russell, Blood Mountain, 2 hours to Asheville, Atlanta, Knoxville, Chattanooga and parts inbetween. Close enough to go the city to remind you why you left that shit, far enough away to not bother with it.

    If anyone is serious, ask Rebel for my email.

    See here:

    Be a nice spot for runs, camping, or you can buy a tractor and become a country squire.

  33. Austin Says:

    @Drifter – I love the 58! Right Now the wildflowers are just starting to go off. Prices out there are coming down since SLO county changed rules for growing weed. I also like to take the road through Taft up to the 46/Lost Hills. Don’t miss the Penny Bar in McKittrick. ;) Happy Trails! ,

  34. Shovelhead Says:


    Yeah I’ll be there. Haven’t decided yet, but may set up a table. Have a ton of shovelhead parts I don’t want to haul down south.
    The older and grumpier I get, the harder it is dealing with the cold and snow.
    I’ve settled on Gulfport, FL. area, although Towns a little North look interesting in Georgia. Alabama, the Carolinas. I’ve seen Bradenton FL. Nice area too.

    Have Family in Gulfport and my Hippie wife likes the artist friendly life there.

    I of course will be seeking out the nearest Biker bar.

  35. rollinnorth Says:

    Congratulations, Shovelhead!

    I’m thinking the same way. Winters north of the 44th have worn me out.
    Be interested to hear how you find life down South.

    Will you still be around for State Line?


  36. Old & Jaded Says:

    Shovelhead – Was in St.Petes and south to Sarasota last year as I have a friend in Bradenton (may want to check that area out too). Liked St. Petes the best. Congrats on your almost retirement.

    @Paladin – …and a fee for usage – hilarious.

  37. david Says:

    For your musical enjoyment: Two Tone Sessions- Eric Gales- Voodoo Chile/Kashmir/Back in Black, 8:53 min. Jimi’s style.

    Also:Two Tone Sessions-Eric Gales-“Block The Sun” and,”On The Wings of Rock And Roll”

  38. Drifter Says:

    Good scooting in the central California area right now, with the rains and wildflowers blooming like mad. Highway 58, between Buttonwillow (west of Bake-ers feld, lol Bakersfield)and west to Santa Magarita, would be a good space scoot for the tramp that wishes to be in the boonies with mother nature going nuts. It is a very lonely highway and I dig it.

    Hey, Shovelhead, ax Rebel for my addy, got major hook-ups for ya in FLA.

  41. Sandmann Says:


    GREAT one.
    Poor George… :-)

  42. russell1946 Says:

    @ Shovelhead

    You might consider Dothan, Alabama.

    Good roads and good weather for riding to either Gulfport or St. Pete.

    I hail from east coast Florida.

  43. Johnny Rotten Says:


    you got my email
    im just over the bridge south from st.pete

  44. Paladin Says:

    @ Shovelhead;

    Ask Rebel to put you in touch with Panamaa, he lives in Florida.

    Long May You Ride,


  45. Shovelhead Says:

    Last winter for me in Maine. Retiring this summer! Heading South this Fall to Florida. Probably the St. Petersburg area. Maybe Gulfport.
    Just going to ride out my remaining years until I can’t ride any more. Tired of being cold all the time.

    Anyone from that area? any suggestions on maybe what neighborhoods to stay out of? I still like the Biker lifestyle, just won’t be flying any colors, Those day’s are over.

  46. Paladin Says:



    Hi, George. This is Richard, next door. I’ve a confession to make. I’ve been riddled with guilt for a few months and have been trying to get up the courage to tell you face-to-face. At least I’m telling you in this text. I can’t live with myself a minute longer without your knowing about this. The truth is, when you’re not around, I’ve been sharing your wife, day and night. Probably much more than you. I haven’t been getting it at home recently. I know that’s no excuse. The temptation was just too great. I can’t live with the guilt & hope you’ll accept my sincere apology and forgive me. Please suggest a fee for usage and I’ll pay you.



    George, feeling enraged and betrayed, grabbed his gun, went next door, and shot Richard dead. He returned home, shot his wife, poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa. George then looked at his phone and discovered a second text message from Richard.


    Hi, George. Richard here again. Sorry about the typo on my last text. I assume you figured it out and noticed that the darned Spell-Check had changed “wi-fi” to “wife.” Technology, huh? It’ll be the death of us all.


  47. Austin Says:

    This is an example of the wrong kind of brotherhood. I’m not man-bashing here. If you know me at all – you know how I adore men. And I haven’t always made good decisions. But FFS- Judges need to be fair and uphold law.

  48. Austin Says:

    “…there isn’t enough information in the public sphere for people to make an intelligent decision about it”

    Rebel – Thanks for going above & beyond to get information into the public sphere. Rock on Brother.
