I’ll need to back here on a weekend when there will be more motorcycles and old classic cars on the road.  Not many people here on a Friday afternoon in October. It was still nice to take a ride through here though.

Charity Ride for a Veteran – March 2018

I participated in a ride to help support a veteran who lost 2 legs and an arm while serving in Afghanistan.  All proceeds were going to the Veteran.  There was a great turnout for this ride.  I didn’t try to make an actual count, buy by my estimates there were over 1,000 motorcycles on the ride.  At $20 per rider and $10 per passenger, I’d say they raised quite a bit of money for him.

Lot’s of bikes showing up for the ride.

A good show of support as more and more bikes arrived.

This ride, only about 15-20 miles.  From Scottsdale, AZ to Cave Creek, AZ.  A short ride, but for a worthwhile cause.

New Motorcycle Tires

Posted in Arizona, Harley-Davidson, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Maintenance, Motorcycle Tires, Motorcycles, Phoenix, Phoenix AZ on July 18, 2017 by DRF

In preparation for my upcoming 4000+ mile trip, I decided to have a new set of tires installed.  My old tires probably would have lasted another 2,000 miles or so, but I don’t want to have to stop somewhere along the trip and have it done.  My father told me a long time ago, he always made sure he kept good tires on his car since they’re so important.  Motorcycles even more so with only 2 wheels!

For anyone in the Phoenix, AZ area, I recommend this place, “Mototire“.  This is the second time I’ve used them.  Fast and friendly service.

I had an appointment at 9:00 am, and the tires were installed in about 45 minutes.  I had the original tires put back on, Dunlap.  Same tires I would have got at the dealer, except about $50 cheaper.  Plus as a bonus, Dunlap has a $50 rebate going on right now on the purchase and install of a set.

A whole lot of tread going on here!

Here’s the business card for Mototire.  This is NOT a paid endorsement or anything like that, I’m just sharing the information for the business that in my opinion provides a good service at a fair price.
