–Setbacks and Discoveries
Today we set out to ride a new trip plan, which I dubbed the “197 Country Roads Ride.”...
BTR 20 | BORNTORIDE.COM
After breakfast at Fabio’s in downtown Newland, NC, we made our way north to US 19E, where we turned south for the 25 mile ride to Spruce Pine, NC. This portion of Highway 19 is a very scenic and enjoyable ride and it passes through several small communities along the way, including Cranberry and Plumtree. If you know where to look and what to look for, you just might see the remnants of an old movie set as you make your way along this twisty stretch of road. In the late 1980s, Kurt Russell and Kelly McGillis came to this area to star in a movie entitled “The Winter People.” Some of the structures featured in that movie still remain near the Plumtree community. At Spruce Pine we continued west on US 19 to Burnsville, where we picked up NC 197 south. This road proved to be another good ride for a number of miles, with some of the most challenging curves – including several hairpins – that are to be found in the area. But there was a surprise in-store for us at the top of the mountain. Somehow I missed (or forgot!?!) the road turns to gravel once you reach the top of the mountain. According to one resident we talked to, the gravel portion of the road extends for five miles and is just as twisty as the paved road leading to the top ... and that’s saying something as this portion of NC 197 must have more switchbacks per mile than any other road in the state! Needless to say, since we were
mostly riding large touring bikes, gravel roads were not an option. So, we did the manly thing and turned around, backtracking to Burnsville. That’s okay, though, because the rest of the ride proved to be even better than anticipated and we made some discoveries
that will make for a much better ride next time we pass this way. Back in Burnsville, we picked up NC 197 northbound. This stretch of highway also proved to be very twisty and challenging. It was apparent that many local motorcyclists must enjoy running this stretch of NC 197 because there were numerous curve warnings painted on the asphalt in strategic locations. These markers aren’t subtle either; they are skulland-crossbones death symbols! That kind of message tends to get your attention and I found myself adjusting my speed accordingly. Thanks to whoever took the time to paint the warnings!We crossed over into Tennessee and continued northbound. This stretch of highway was downhill, but it was an enjoyable run. A short portion of the road ran through a beautiful pine forest and the air was filled with the aromatic scent of cool air and fresh pine.Just out of the forest, we came upon a small community called Rock Creek, where we pulled in at the Rock Creek Mart. I stopped there just to take a break and get a swig of water, but the other guys gave in to temptation, succumbing to the allure of “the best cheeseburger anywhere,” as one local

FAMILY OWNED & OPERATED “41 YEARS STRONG” 1975-2016
described it. I couldn’t imagine being able to eat anything after the breakfast we had at Fabio’s. But that didn’t impede the others as they gobbled down their burgers while sitting on the small porch beside the front door of the store.Back on the road we made our way down to US 19E, where we headed west again to pickup US 321 around Lake Watauga. We continued east on US 321 back to the intersection with US 421, just north of Boone, NC.From there we picked up NC 194 — also known as “the Vilas Road” — and ran it down to just past the Mast General Store, where we turned west again toward Banner Elk, NC. The stretch of NC 194 between Vilas and Banner Elk — also known as “the Valle Crucis Road” — is an incredibly twisty road that defines the word “challenging” where roads are concerned. Not only is the road incredibly twisty, but there are also severe elevation changes, odd cambers, and some of the worst asphalt you’ll find anywhere in the mountains. The poor condition of the road doesn’t take away from the fun, though, and I always ride this road at least once when I’m in the area. It is also a designated National Scenic Byway ... kind of makes you think that someone would spend the money to fix the road. It has been in bad shape for as many years as I have been coming to this part of North Carolina, and that encompasses many years.Once we made it Banner Elk it was time to put an end to the fun and head back to the motel to get ready for dinner. I led the group south on NC 184 through Banner Elk, Sugar Mountain, and Tyne Castle (the traffic was terrible!), before turning for Linville and Pineola.
– Rain, Rain Go Away! Well, it had to happen; we got some rain overnight and it persisted well into the morning. Not to be defeated by a little bit of moisture ... or wind ... or dense fog ... we loaded up in the truck and headed out for a day of caged sightseeing. After breakfast, that is! Our first stop was at Fabio’s in Newland for another round of his gourmet breakfast. Bellies full and figuring the overcast skies and wet conditions would make for good pictures, we headed onto the parkway for a photo session. Our goal was to get into position to shoot some photos of the Linn Cove Viaduct, but that goal was not accomplished. The entire area around the viaduct was shrouded
in a thick cloud that made visibility almost zero. So, no photos of that famous bridge today! But that was okay as we found plenty of other great shots at lower elevations. We continued working our way eastward and ended up at the Mast General Store over in Valle Crucis. The guys enjoyed the atmosphere of the store and used the opportunity to snag some souvenirs and to get in some relaxation time. Here you see the group sitting on the back porch enjoying the slow pace and relaxed atmosphere:
including many of the Linn Cove Viaduct. The stormy conditions, rolling fog, and intermittent moisture added some interesting dramatic effects to many of the photos that I shot. After all the photography it was on to Blowing Rock where we did some top-notch shopping, enjoyed the picturesque downtown area, and generally made the best of a day that was not really suited to quality motorcycling.
Even the Good Times Have to End
And, so ended another year’s Fall Leaf Ride, the week of riding and exploring the mountains was great. We challenged the twisty roads, snapped a ton of gorgeous photos, and just had a good time. Loading up to make the trek southward toward home I couldn’t help but feel a tinge of sadness about leaving those beautiful mountains behind. I always feel that way when it is time to head home from the hills, but even more so in the fall. I always wonder if the next day or the following week will be even more beautiful than what I have just seen. And, of course, I always start thinking about how much fun it would be to hit the twisty roads one more time … or three … before heading back to the land of the straight-and-level. Oh, well, there’s always next year. And who knows, maybe next time I’ll see you and your bike up there enjoying the beauty and the challenge of fall leaf peeping in the High Country.
– I Said “Rain, Rain Go Away … Dammit!” Rain, rain, and more rain! That was the order of the day! It rained again overnight and the showers continued after sunrise. The bad weather put an end to any organized riding for another day, but we made the best of it. Following breakfast at the Tartan Restaurant in Linville, NC, we loaded up in the truck again and headed east on the Blue Ridge Parkway for more photos and a goal of reaching Blowing Rock, NC, for some souvenir shopping. The weather was bad for motorcycling, but it was pretty good for photography. The dark overcast and wet conditions allowed for full saturation of the fall colors all around Grandfather Mountain and along the Blue Ridge Parkway from Linville to Blowing Rock. I took full advantage of the situation to By Bill McDaniel shoot a couple hundred more photographs, Continued in Next Months Issue

THE ONE-WAY STREET
You are riding along in the left lane of a oneway street, with a car ahead of you on your right. As the two of you enter an intersection, the car swerves left across your path to make a turn. Strategy: Because traffic was light, the driver may have forgotten that he was traveling on a oneway street and never looked in his blind spot for you. Since there was no traffic in the oncoming lane, he felt free to make a normal left turn (without signaling), inadvertently trapping you in his path. There was no way, short of watching for the non-existent signal, to predict that this driver was going to turn left. But remembering that intersections are always situations of increased risk, you might have prepared for this by taking actions to separate yourself from the other vehicle. By riding so close (and inside the driver’s blind spot) you effectively hid yourself from the driver’s vision and greatly increased your exposure to danger. For more information go to www.msf-usa.org

One of the most uncomfortable and negative aspects of riding an air-cooled V-twin motorcycle is the heat the engine generates. This is especially true in the hot weather and at slow speeds when the heat coming off the engine pours over your legs. For some people that uncomfortable feeling can be a huge decision maker for taking a trip on the bike or not. Aside from being uncomfortable, the heat is really damaging to your engine—your engine is laboring and your oil has stopped its enginesaving protection. What is the solution to this problem? You can press on or pull your bike over to cool down … or thanks to the outstanding invention of LoveJugs those days are over. The master-mind and inventor behind this amazing product is Dave Sandel, president of Hammerhead Engineering, LLC. Dave labored 4-1/2 years, conducting intensive R & D to develop and perfect his dual-fan cooling system. Born To Ride had the pleasure of recently interviewing Hammerhead Engineering’s CEO, Steve West. Because this is such an important product for all V-twin motorcycle owners we are pleased to update the exciting Love-Jugs story
BTR 30 | BORNTORIDE.COM
and let you know where they will be set up during Daytona Bike Week 2016! BTR: Why would a V-twin motorcycle rider need Love-Jugs? West: The product is fantastic! Every V-twin rider needs this product. All air-cooled engines get hot, and there is no other way to effectively keep them cool under all conditions. No one has been able to create what Dave has created. He is the brains of the organization; I am the mouth. Prior to my coming on board, Dave built the prototype and sold 100 of them on eBay. He stopped selling for a year and a half, so these pioneers became our field testers. With feedback from these willing beta testers, Dave implemented improvements and perfected an already exceptional product. Most of these prototypes are still on the road. BTR: You call Love Jugs a perfect product. What basis do you have to make such a bold claim? West: There are many things about the product that make it beyond exceptional. This is the result of our president’s extensive inventing and engineering experience, along with over a half century of riding and working on Harleys. On top of all the extensive research and development,
Dave is an absolute perfectionist. He often drives me nuts with his compulsion for perfection. If you look closely you will see the perfection that is in each Love-Jugs component as well as the whole. For example, our custom made fan motors are embossed with a raised Love-Jugs logo, even though no one will ever see them unless they looked inside the rear grill. The same is true of even the heavy-duty clamps that will be hidden under the tank. More important, these are the strongest clamps made in the world and we hand solder the connectors to make them even stronger. Even our rubber grommets are perfectly made with a special formula rubber. If somebody felt the rubber it feels like iron—not rubber. The quality and workmanship that goes into Love-Jugs is exceptional, and that is the reason I can confidently say that we have a perfect product. BTR: Is there one feature that makes Love-Jugs the most effective cooling system in the world? West: What really makes the product stand out is that it keeps the V-twin engine cool under all conditions. No one has been able to create this until now. Love-Jugs are patented as
Become a Love-Jugs Dealer, -561-499-0974, www.Love-Jugs.com
the exclusive air cooling device for all V-twin engines. The patent number is engraved in each Love-Jugs stainless steel body, along with an individual serial number for each unit. BTR: What are the experts saying about LoveJugs? West: In 2015 the motorcycle media began to recognize the value of Love-Jugs. Most of the major motorcycle magazines and electronic media have already published stories. With all the coverage there has not been an unkind or negative word. Your readers can read the full articles on our web site at http:// love-jugs.com/experts-saying/. I must give props to Ron and Debbie of Born To Ride. Your magazine was in on the ground floor with us. The three articles that were written about Love-Jugs have been accurate and favorable. Your readers are informed about the benefits of Love-Jugs; consequently, Florida is one of our most active markets. There was an article written by highly regarded expert Jimmy Kay for Two Wheel Thunder. Mr. Kay begins his article saying that he tested Love-Jugs with the intention to expose LoveJugs as a fraud. After putting his Love-Jugs through grueling testing, the reporter finished his article by reporting that Love-Jugs had achieved his highest recommendation. BTR: How did the name ‘Love-Jugs’ come to be? West: As you know the cylinder heads are called jugs, and of course the double entendre is associated with women’s breasts. We are mindful not to go over the top with all the obvious puns. The public has that privilege. We find that men enjoy the name and that women laugh about it. Ultimately, everyone finds it memorable. The Love-Jugs name has been extremely helpful for us. We’ve never had anybody say anything negative about it! BTR: What do you attribute your great success to? West: First and foremost, our miraculous product that leads to Love-Jugs love. We’re turning people’s relationship with their motorcycles around. Everyone loves their Harley’s, but when they overheat it becomes a love/hate relationship. Love-Jugs eliminates the excessive
BTR 32 | BORNTORIDE.COM
heat. BTR: Steve, you told me that word of mouth is a huge part of the success of Love-Jugs. You say that you started a referral program that ‘gives back’ to those who are sold on this amazing product. West: People are getting the word out about Love-Jugs without any encouragement. I believe they should be rewarded for helping us spread the word as well as encouraged to keep putting the word out by sending them Reward Bucks. So every time somebody refers a new client, I send them a $25 check. For every tenth referral I send $100 instead of $25. Over time, that person can pay for their Love-Jugs just from the referral program! BTR: Steve, you also mentioned some good news for the Indian motorcycle owners! West: Yes, we are about to roll out Love-Jugs for Indian motorcycles. We have a lot of Indian motorcycle-owners waiting for this day! Perhaps by the time your readers are reading this we will be installing Love-Jugs on Indian motorcycles! And the Victory will be next. Soon we will have Love-Jugs available for the 3 major American brands. BTR: How do you see the future? West: Let’s start with my ultimate vision which is that Harley-Davidson will eventually see the practical benefits of Love-Jugs for their great machines and they will install a unit on every motorcycle that rolls out of their plant. But for now, Love-Jugs is arguably one of the most talked about aftermarket items in the HarleyDavidson world. With several million Harley’s on the road we have an almost infinite customer base. It’s interesting that we have never solicited any dealers, yet some of the world’s premier dealers have found us by this word of mouth initiative. Our dealer family grows every day. You might wonder how this works? Our retail customers get so excited about their LoveJugs after using them on their bikes they go to their dealers and tell them about Love-Jugs. If a dealer wants to join our family, contact Adam Halstead via e-mail Adam@Love-Jugs. com or phone at 828-342-5637. Non-dealer
purchasers should contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. BTR: If I wanted to purchase or install LoveJugs on my bike in Daytona, how would I find you? West: Love-Jugs will have three different locations available to those who want to take them home or have them installed during Daytona Bike Week. We will be set up at J & P Cycles, right at the front entrance. We also will be represented by two professional vendors (Amsoil and Cycle Solutions) who are set up at the vendor’s mall at the Daytona Speedway who will be selling and installing Love-Jugs! If you want to avoid the lines you can call Adam at 828-342-5637 for an appointment. Our great staff will explain the benefits of our anti-vibration devices as well. What Love-Jugs does for the heat, the Frame Mount Kit and the Vibration-Master will do for your vibration. We are encouraging people to make appointments for installation at any of the three Love-Jugs locations at Daytona Bike Week. In addition, Miss Love-Jugs will be stopping by the locations signing giant posters as well as Born To Ride magazines. Be sure you stop by one of our locations and meet her. BTR: If you’re not coming to Daytona Bike Week but want a set of Love-Jugs on your bike, email Steve@Love-Jugs.com. Steve will take the time to get you a set of Love-Jugs for your Harley! BTR: In winding down this exciting conversation, I asked Steve the million dollar question: Why should you get Love-Jugs on your Harley? West: Hot Harley—Problem Solved! The price is very reasonable, they look great, and Love-Jugs will put out your “Ring of Fire.” BTR: Thank you Steve for a great interview about Love-Jugs! All of us at Born To Ride look forward to seeing everyone at Daytona Bike Week! Susan Hurst What: Love-Jugs Where: 2016 Daytona Bike Week (three locations!) When: March 4-13 Web: Love-Jugs.com

The fire has been lit in Florida with a new action-thriller that is destined to be a hit amongst the biker family—Nation’s Fire has started to take shape. Ron Galletti, producer/publisher of Born To Ride TV & magazine will be on the creative side, taking his new film venture by storm, with his role as producer of the upcoming film that will star (also be produced by) the very beautiful and talented Krista Grotte who starred in The Emerging Past, Lazarus: Apocalypse, (both available on DVD and streaming services) and the upcoming Check Point film. If Ms. Grotte looks very familiar to the Born To Ride magazine she should … she was a former on air host for the Born To Ride weekly television show. The film will be written, directed, and also produced by the multi-award winning independent filmmaker, Thomas J. Churchill. Mr. Churchill has written and directed the last
three films that Krista has starred in. However, this is the first time Mr. Galletti and Mr. Churchill will join creative forces, but their backgrounds suggest an action-packed film with some serious twists. This new power trio has big plans with their first project together–Nation’s Fire. They have been scouting all over Florida, looking for special locations to film. When asked on his vision for this new exciting biker thriller, Mr. Churchill replied, “Easy Rider is the Holy Grail of biker films … I would love to make a film as great and beloved as that … we plan to come real close.” They have been tight-lipped on the story and who will be involved, but if Mr. Churchill’s most recent film Check Point is any indication, stand by for some action. The trio plan on shooting a slate of films in and around the Florida area with other joint projects to be named later. When asked
Tell us why you should be in NATION’S FIRE. email@example.com
about Hollywood coming to Florida, Mr. Galletti replied, “We here at Born To Ride are very excited to have Hollywood come to Florida and maybe make Florida ‘the place’ to shoot films.” Born To Ride will be along to document the making of Nation’s Fire and will be first to bring you exclusive up to date information on the making of this exciting film. Kind of like the Nation’s Fire journal. Stay abreast and updated on casting, locations shooting, and on the new power trio of Galletti, Grotte and Churchill (GGC). Go and like the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for the film, as well as Nation’s Fire.com for further information on this action-thriller.

Since February is the month for lovers. After all, midmonth is Valentine’s Day. Therefore, what a great month for spreading love and passion—for living life Extraordinarily. My heart is filled with enormous joy, gratitude, and passion at being able to share my newly released book with the world. I seek to be the “Wake Up” call for the masses who are simply existing as tourists’ in their own lives. My book “Screw Cancer: Live Life Passionately” is meant to be a voluntary wake up call for everyone not just those diagnosed with cancer. Don’t wait to live your dreams and change your life from ordinary to extraordinary until you are involuntarily forced to. Sometimes we are forced to change and see life in a whole new light due to such things as: family death, illness, divorce, loss of income etc. Being forced to change is a very difficult way to transform yourself and your life. Instead of waiting for a time where you have no choice, how about if you begin today to voluntarily create your life your way. BTR 36 | BORNTORIDE.COM
In the book I use my experience with cancer as a wake up call to others. My life is just extraordinary, and it was forced lessons that I was blessed to learn that made it possible. How many of you waste your time on things that do not matter at the end? How many live with anger and bitterness towards someone? Are you being critical or judgmental, believing your way is the only right way to live? Are you whining and complaining about things such as: your work, boss, income, your weight, looks? How about traffic, are you complaining when you’re stuck in traffic? How about being grateful that you can be in traffic and are not bedridden. How about sharing your love and compassion for your fellow human beings? Why not look for any little way you can help others and put a smile on their face? If only we could all see how much time we spend on nonsense and how short our journey is in the life. If we would just let go of the useless nonsense and help each other. Stop the nonsense, and stop the excuses for not reaching your goals. Do not doubt your abilities. Get out there and try something totally new and outside your comfort zone. Every time you step out of your box you will get more confident and realize how much power you have in you. Believe in yourself. The time to start is right now. EQ Women Succeeds believes in you. Come join the EQ LifeStyle. The newly released book “Screw Cancer: Live Life Passionately” may be purchased at www.EQWS.org IT IS TIME TO BE PART OF THE “EQ LIFESTYLE” I invite you to come check out our upcoming events (Born To Ride Women’s World: An EQ LifeStyle) at www.

Craven Moorehead called! I certainly wasn’t expecting to hear from her but to an extent the surprise call was sort of welcomed. This statement is being based upon the fact that I really don’t have any friends and expected nothing but the silence and solitude that the simple country life offers. Her offer was too irresistible to ignore, and I accepted it less than reluctantly because I needed some diversion and excitement. You must understand her gorgeousness to relate to this story. She is extremely beautiful, and everywhere I go in her company people are envious and jealous. Let me explain. Although she has tattoos and scars, in most areas she appears to be less than 25 years old. Evidently, I’m doing pretty well for an old scruffy biker dude! All of her ample curves are precisely in the right places and the intimacy Thanks to Hallmark, February is a month that has become a that we share together is unsurpassable by any other.

We will that there isn’t any love, but there are always problems that spend our lives together until the end of time. pop up just when you least expect it.

Christian Motorcyclists Association each other as we travel the roads, there is one who shows us the way in every situation. In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” And the best part is that Jesus is available every moment of your life. His Word, the Bible, is a guidebook that gives us direction, truth in a misleading world, and the promise of everlasting life. When we read the Bible we can discover insights as to which way we should safely go in our lives and which pathway is free of dangerous obstacles. We find history that shows how God led His people, and His leaders, in the past. Unlike the confusing rhetoric of today’s hitting the road debris. It amazes me to hear politicians, God’s Word is always faithful, about, or experience, the articles fellow riders beyond question, and to be trusted. have encountered. When life makes it difficult to know which A friend of mine told me about riding his bike direction to go, lean on Jesus to show you to work one day and came upon an aluminum the way. When we put our faith and trust in extension ladder directly in his path. It all Him, He moves in our hearts and lives in an happened so fast that the only thing he could incredibly powerful way. In The Wind, Denny Dingler BTR 44 | BORNTORIDE.COM Check out BornToRide.com for more articles from Christian Motorcyclists Association If you want to experience an exciting ride, head down a road that has obstacles, trash, or litter scattered across it. A person in a cage can toss an aluminum can or a plastic bottle out the window and think nothing of it. Something that small wouldn’t cause any problems for anyone traveling in a cage, but that can create an accelerated heartbeat for the biker who has to swerve in order to avoid
do was to quickly downshift, put his weight on the pegs, and hit the throttle hard as he shot over the ladder. That kind of obstacle will surely wake you up! One day while leading a ride, I was carefully watching the back end of the truck in front of me when suddenly a pillow (yes, like you have on your bed) came rolling out from underneath the vehicle. I was dumbfounded at seeing that pillow coming towards me and concerned that the riders behind me might hit it! That’s why it is so important to signal the riders behind you when you encounter obstacles on the road. You may signal with your hand or foot, but by all means you want to give others a warning so they can take evasive action. If you are in front of another bike it is your responsibility to help show the way safely past anything that would cause an accident. You know, in life there are things that will cause us to fall or take a dangerous pathway if we are not careful. Just as we need to help
