The 10th annual Idaho Thunder Patriot Ride

By | General Posts

The 10th annual Idaho Thunder Patriot Ride is  Sunday, June 2nd and this year they’re giving away a Harley Davidson worth more than $10,000.  The Patriot Ride will take off Sunday morning around 9:30 from High Desert Harley Davidson in Meridian.  There is a 1,200 motorcycle cap so if you’re interested and haven’t registered, you can do so now by clicking HERE.

Registration in advance is $25 per person which includes the ride and the patch.  Day of registration is $30 per person. V.I.P. tickets are $100 and you can only purchase those at High Desert Harley Davidson.  V.I.P. includes a shirt, the ride, a patch, and front of ride placement.  The ride is limited to 1,200 people so make sure to register a.s.a.p.

The entire event will start at High Desert Harley Davidson (2310 East Cinema Dr.  Meridian, ID.) and ends 55 miles away at Carl Miller Park in Mountain Home.

It’s always so surreal watching our local law enforcement block off freeway entrances and escort all these riders through Boise who ride in honor of the Idaho Guard & ReserveFamily Support Fund, and Operation Warmheart.  It’s a sight to see.

The finale at Carl Miller Park will have live music, food trucks, and that’s where someone wins a Harley Davidson worth more than $10,000.  If you’d like to be in for that, tickets are $10 each or you can get six tickets for $50.  All the details are on the Idaho Thunder Patriot Ride Facebook page.

New Harley-Davidson Headsets helps riders stay connected

By | General Posts

NEW HARLEY-DAVIDSON HEADSETS HELP RIDERS STAY CONNECTED

Whether on a cross-country haul or a trip across town, riders can keep connectivity and their eyes looking ahead. Boom!TM Audio Bluetooth® accessories make it possible to keep full communication with passengers, other riders or even a whole group with outstanding sound and functionality. No need to worry about a missed call or fuss with a pocket music player when you have an H-D Boom! Audio Bluetooth Headset.

Take the Harley-Davidson riding experience to the next level with the Wireless Headset Interface Module (WHIM – P/N 76000768 $299.95*). The WHIM allows riders to communicate with their bike without being wired to it. Communicate via CB radio, hear turn-by-turn GPS directions and listen to the radio with the WHIM Bluetooth® adapter and a Bluetooth®-enabled headset. Dual headset connectivity allows for two Bluetooth®-enabled headsets to be connected to one WHIM. The WHIM fits ’14-later Touring and Trike models with a Boom!™ Box 6.5GT or Boom!™ Box GTS audio system. ’14-’17 models require a separate purchase of the Wireless Headset Interface Module Harness (P/N 69201726. $49.95*). 

Next, pair the WHIM to a helmet headset like the new Boom!™ Audio 30K Bluetooth® Helmet Single Headset (P/N 76000838, $329.95*). This headset comes with a Bluetooth® module and a Mesh Intercom Network module to offer riders an integrated riding experience. Pair the headset with the WHIM to enjoy full stereo sound, use the bike’s infotainment screen to configure the headset and leverage the existing hand controls to keep hands on the handlebar while searching through music, phone, GPS and push-to-talk intercom conversations. Apple CarPlay is available when equipped with the new Boom!™ Box GTS Radio. This headset allows a talk time of up to 13 hours and takes 1.5 hours to fully charge. 

Another option is the new Boom!™ Audio 10S Bluetooth® Helmet Single Headset (P/N 76000837, $239.95*). It is a single-use headset that connects riders on group rides or allows them to connect to the WHIM. The 10S headset comes with one Bluetooth® module and offers 10 preset station memory, integrated FM radio and Bluetooth® Intercom with up to four riders. This headset allows a talk time of up to 12 hours and it takes three hours to fully charge.

To Full Face Helmet or not to Full Face Helmet

By | General Posts

A long standing proponent of freedom of choice, this year for the ride to Daytona Beach for the annual Bike Week pilgrimage – I decided to do something I’ve never, EVER done before in 37+ years of riding– sport a full face helmet. The helmet of choice for the trial was the Harley Davidson FXRG Sun Shield H29 Modular Helmet – Part Number 98359-19VX.

May We Find Balance and Freedom

I wonder if all the bullshit is human nature. We just can’t relax and have a good time. We need to fight over something. I just hope it doesn’t lead to something devastating. Maybe I read too much.

I just want to ride free, race, and chase redheads. Life can be so fuckin’ amazing, if we just let it be.

I’m about to launch a new Cantina episode. We have Barry’s footboards tech about ready. And you just don’t know what might happen next.

Joe Teresi told me he has a deal to sell ER and take the company off his hands.

Shit is changing fast. Ride hard and die fast.

Forever Free,

If you have never been part of a benefit ride you should know at least this.

Bikers PAY to ride. Something they could do for free. But they choose to pay to ride ,the fee can be anywhere between $10 to $20 or $30 per person. Not only do they pay to ride, they usually drop a lot of cash for the extras. Raffles, 50/50, and silent auction.

When you see a group ride by, they are probably riding for charity! Instead of getting upset because they blocked traffic or caused you a slight delay, please remember this. They are very generous people.

Give them space and your patience. It sometimes helps to have a little reminder about things. So please be patient and smile when you see them because they are doing something good for someone you may know, or a good cause. Please feel free to copy and share with friends.
