Spring is Sprung

Featured Article

Tractors and equipment have been prepared for a new season while the farmlands were covered with a thick blanket of gleaming white snow. Now the fields are getting turned and readied for spring planting in hopes of harvesting an abundant crop in the fall. The damp soil fills the air with a fresh earthy aroma and the winter wheat planted last fall gives fields a lively green look as the tiny plants stretch toward the warming sun.

With the snow gone and the salt off the roads, the throaty song of Harleys can be heard every day. The riding season is here and we are ready. Or are we? Our equipment was prepared during our winter hiatus and coated with a shiny coat of wax. We’ve made sure there is no rust anywhere on our gleaming steed, but what about on us? What have we done to get our physical skills ready for the new riding season? Perhaps a little time in the nearest parking lot just to blow off the winter’s layer of dust and to make sure there’s no rust on them is in order.

We're often asked by new riders we teach how they can take what they learned in class to become smooth and confident riders like the people who got them excited about riding. We gathered our thoughts in Saddle Time: Gaining Confidence.

After writing monthly newsletter articles for over fifteen years, we decided to publish a selection of new and revised articles as food for thought in The Motorcyclist's Soup Kitchen: 101 Ideas to Chew On When You're Riding or Not.
