There is a fundamental difference between the natures of products that women like in contrast with what men like. Those online stores which feature men’s products in plenty are likely to distract women and vice versa. We felt a need to make a gift guide for men and women separately especially for black Friday to make shopping convenient for both men and women. This list features many outstanding quality men’s products. With the help of this guide, men can purchase the products of their choice easily because they won’t have to search through the combined plethora of men and women’s products.

Kevin Diepenbrock is a motorcyclist who is lucky to be alive. He was out on his motorcycle in rural Tennessee on Saturday, October 15th, travelling down a road known to locals as “The Dragon”.

Polito was killed in the crash, but Diepenbrock was launched from his bike and sent tumbling over 100 feet downward, into a ravine – out of the sights of traffic.

Today we’re in the mood to laugh. It’s been a rough couple of weeks and everyone is in need of some comedic relief, are we right? Well you’ve parked your motorcycle in the right place, because today, we’re serving up some classic laughter, with 5 Harley Davidson jokes. Are you ready?
It’s no secret that lately Harley Davidson has been worried about their bottom line. This past week alone has been an incredibly crucial week for the American-based motorcycle manufacturer, as stock analysts are only showing a 16% positive stock rating for the company, who holds the American stock title NYSE: HOG . For anyone who knows the stock market, you know this is good, but not great. Combine that with an already declining stock percentage and an overall earnings loss for the company, it’s somewhat bad news. That is why the financial experts over at Harley Davidson have come up with a new plan – extending customer financing services to India – a country that has yet to experience being able to finance the American-made motorcycle brand.
Legendary songwriter and performer Leonard Cohen, who is best know for his work on the wildly popular song ‘Hallelujah’ has passed away at the age of 82. His work, spanning a time period of nearly 50 years, included songs that touched on many controversial subjects over the decades, dealing with love and hate, sex, spirituality, war and peace, as well as ecstasy and depression.
The Warrior Brotherhood is a motorcycle club like no other. It is a Veterans Motorcycle Club that has only one mission – to help other fellow American Veterans – to provide them with hope, a sense of future, and to give back to them what they’ve sacrificed for our great country. Here at BikerOrNot, we found it necessary to introduce them to you all on this Veteran’s Day 2016. You’ll be glad you met them.
This Veteran’s Day, we are bringing you the heartwarming story of Ray Weser, a 101 year old United States Veteran and life-long motorcycle enthusiast from Arizona, who took his last Harley ride with a group of 50 motorcycles riding right behind him to honor him. Ray will turn 102 years old next month, and fell in love with bikes – specifically Harley Davidson’s – when he was just a teenager, many years ago. He went off to war shortly after discovering his love for motorcycles, but that never got in the way of his undying love and devotion toward his Harley.
In honor of Veteran’s Day, we’ve put together a list of awesome gifts to say “Thank You” to our military heroes who bravely served our country. Continue reading “7 Gifts To Honor American Veterans”
The Toys for Tots Organization, in connection with the US Marines, kicked off the holiday season on two wheels on Sunday, October 23, 2016 in Albuquerque, NM with the annual Toys For Tots Motorcycle Run. Over 1,300 bikes participated in the run, raising much needed funds to support the Toys for Tots mission this year. The ride began at the Walmart at 460 Nm Hwy, #528 in Bernalillo, NM, and stretched nearly 20 miles to Thunderbird Harley Davidson at 5000 Alameda Boulevard Northeast, in Albuquerque, NM – where the after party of the run was held. I, being the luckiest gal on Earth, was able to participate in the run – my first ever – and I’ve got exclusive photos and videos from the event to share, right here. Special thanks to my good friend Alan for giving me the opportunity to participate with him in the run!

Holy crap. That’s all we have to say about how technology is changing the way we look at and ride our motorcycles. Harley Davidson, by our definition, is a 2-wheeled motorcycle, of the ultimate standard, that gets our blood pumping and the wind blowing through our hair. But, what if we told you that there was a company that put their best teams together to try and change that standard definition all together?

Yes, you read that right. This week we get to meet a biker pig – a pig named Baby Banks who loves to go for rides on the motorcycle. Not only is Baby Banks a badass biker pig, she’s the Spokespig for “The Food Train”, an amazing organization that supports other piggies in that live in shelters.

We think this pig has done more in her short lifespan than we have in our years so far – and we *love* it!
Attendance was down for the 76th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, which ran from August 8-14, 2016 in Sturgis, South Dakota, but that didn’t stop people from flocking to the wildly popular event for a week of fun, motorcycles, and food. Set in the Black Hills region of South Dakota, this year’s rally had a more laid back feel to it, especially compared to that of last year’s 75th anniversary event.
Every year, the Sturgis Annual Motorcycle Rally does one thing, that they hope will better the lives for Veterans all across the country. Indian Motorcycles hosts a Veterans charity ride each and every year – wounded and amputee Veterans are hand selected to participate in and experience the ride at Sturgis, as well as the opportunity to heal with motorcycle therapy. Motorcycle therapy enables disabled Veterans to get out on the open road, to feel the wind in their face and empty their minds of whatever may be troubling them.
