Motorcyclist Jonathan Daniels has been through quite a bit this year. On September 15, he was out riding his motorcycle with a couple of his buddies when a young kid pulled out in front of them. Only one person was injured in the crash – Jonathan. He bounced off the kid’s car, and was ejected into a telephone pole. He’d recently bought his girlfriend tickets to see country star Blake Shelton perform in New York, and thanks to the accident, they never made it to the concert. Jonathan took to Facebook earlier in November to reach out to Blake, and today, we’re going to be sharing that open letter from Facebook with you all, as well as Blake’s video response to Jonathan. This is a near-tragic story with a pretty fantastic ending.

Riding a Harley has always been a man’s thing, right? When you think of someone straddling that leather seat, gunning the throttle, and chasing the wind, you normally picture a man – the tattoos, the beard, the vest, the jeans, the boots….it’s an image that has been branded into our minds for years. Mainstream media, advertising, television….they’ve always portrayed motorcycles to be in the hands of a man. But that imagery is quickly changing, as more and more women are grabbing a hold of the handlebars – and the reasons why are just amazing.

They slow down, as the tractor trailer in front of them is coming to a stop, and the biker’s old lady puts her foot down to the pavement. For unknown reasons, the biker reverses, causing his old lady to lose her footing.

Nice bikers are everywhere. We’re sure you guys are nice bikers. As as your family and friends. Much like the guy in the video we’re sharing with you today, who was totally nice, and went above and beyond to help a driver in traffic….that is until the driver flipped him off. What the french toast?! He was just trying to help when he saw that the driver had left his wallet sitting atop his car, and picked it up out of the street when it had fallen off the car’s roof.

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.
