How Evel K. received his endorsement

Posted 03-03-2014 at 07:46 PM by neverseenrain

While visiting AIMe Expo in Orlando Florida, we met all kinds of motorcycle enthusiasts with interesting stories to share. This time we got to meet up with up with Mr. R.M. from Bluff City, Tennessee.

R. M. was a close buddy of Evel Knievel. He used to house Evil's bikes in his garage and tune them up when Evil was on the west coast. Evil even did a roofing commercial at R.M.'s house.

There are different opinions of Evil's personality, but being optimists, we asked...

Big Bike Little Bike

After riding my little ninja 250 a couple years now people always ask me, Hey when are you going to upgrade?

Posted 06-03-2012 at 08:28 PM by Diva
Updated 06-03-2012 at 08:29 PM by Diva (Adding categories)

Kind of been blogging about my ride experiences and thought I'd try it on this forum. So welcome to my 1st official PNWR blog. Enjoy!

Thanks to Destination Highways (no this is not an ad for them but they are highly recommended), Iíve had the pleasure of exploring a lot of back roads throughout Western Washington and several in Eastern WA. I have several local favorites, but I yearn to find new roads (well roads new to me) for that since of discovery, the thrill of the unexpected,...

Well... It's no longer Adventures of a Harley Chic Rider...

We traded my V-Rod in last year, 2011, for what you see in my pic to the left: Yamaha FZ6-R. I LOVE it! His name is SPARTACUS I think I'll change my post titles to: Adventures of a Biker Chic!

I haven't really ridden a whole lot in the past 2.5 yrs. I wrecked my V-Rod in August 2010. Not too much damage on the bike... On me however, was a total different monster. I tore up my left knee and shoulder. I didn't...

Something New at Bosworth ORV Park

Posted 09-22-2010 at 02:35 PM by Gamuru (The Path Less Traveled)

I went for a cruise after work last night and ended up at the ORV park south of Lake Bosworth. It seems the DNR folks have been busy removing and/or replacing culverts in the park. Here's what I ran into about mid-park:
