Harley Motorcycle Fun

Travels with Harley

Winter can be tough if you own a Harley Motorcycle, especially if you live anywhere in the US, except for California and Florida of course. With that being said, Jim and I are itching to get out for a ride, but unfortunately, Mother Nature hasn’t cooperated. However, there are some rides and events that you can participate in if the weather decides to warm up.

Travels with Harley

Riding in the winter does have its ups and downs, but if you do ride your Harley Motorcycle with a group, such as the Harley Davidson Owners Group, you may not notice the snow, rain, or sleet, well not as much anyway.

Because it’s winter, quite a few of the events are workshops. As you know, it is not much fun to ride in the snow or the cold. These workshops make it easy to get through winter, especially if you are hankering to get together with others from your Harley Davidson Owners Group.

I can’t believe that I came up with Travels with Harley back in 2013. Seriously, where does the time go?

This year promises to be bigger and brighter than the last. Jim and I both wish that we could have ridden more this past year, but we are busier than ever and hope to get in more motorcycle roadtrips for Travels with Harley once the weather gets a bit nicer.

In the meantime I thought we would revisit our very first Travels with Harley blog all of those years ago, well not that many years, but hopefully we will be able to say that in 10 years… The blog below was first published on February 25th 2013. A lot has happened since then, but Jim and I still have high hopes of getting our Travels with Harley project funded and filmed we had to cancel the Kickstarter Project, but hope to be back at it soon. This summer looks promising. If you would rather read the original blog, you can check it out here.

Preparing for Travels with Harley

And the race is on! Jim and I are so excited about our, “Travels with Harley,” project and we know that you will be too once you get to know us. If you already know us, have worked with us, or have ridden with us, you know how passionate we are about riding.

If you do ride a motorcycle, you know that not everyone is biker friendly, and I’m not just talking about lodging and food. Jim and I have come across many establishments that still think of motorcycle riders as less than stand up citizens, and that is another reason we started, “Travels with Harley.” We want to prove to the world that there is a whole sub-culture of motorcycle riders out there that have real jobs and families. These are folks just like you and me who love to ride and understand that it isn’t always easy to take a road trip on the back of a bike.

Jim and I are in the process of selling our Sears store. We are ready to experience life on the back of our Road King. After 10 years and almost 100 hours a week, it’s time for a break. I also want to spend some time with my family in California, and because of the store, it has been nearly impossible to visit more than once a year. Jim and I are really excited about starting a new chapter in our lives, and this includes “Travels with Harley.”

We already have six backers who have pledged $705.00 of our $25,000 goal. Read our kickstarter project page and help us out. Even if you can’t jump on the back of a Harley and travel across the country, you can do it with us…we can’t wait to share our adventures with all of you. So come along for the ride and don’t forget to check out my weekly blog. A new chapter in our lives has just begun, and we want to take you along for the ride.
