Emergency Awareness By: Cotton Howell Hi folks, yep another Cotton contributing to the best motorcycling magazine in the world. The difference being that Preacher Cotton is trying to save our souls where I just want to help save our ass. In the next few paragraphs I hope to remind everyone of the importance of being prepared. Not just prepared for the stuff that might happen to us when we are out on our bikes, but for all the things that can happen when we are not riding: Hurricane Tips Let’s talk hurricane safety, first it is not safe to ride your bike in a hurricane. Most of the information below I have gotten from someone else. When I find a good statement or safety tip I copy and save it. The copyright police (my wife) said I need to put that disclaimer in. Here we are in the middle of hurricane season. This year has started out with a bang having two named storms before the season started. The predictors have upped their projection to as many as fifteen named storms. Maybe nine hurricanes with three reaching category three or higher. They can’t predict if any will make landfall. It doesn’t matter how many there are, it is the one that hits you that counts. History teaches that a lack of hurricane awareness and preparation are common threads among all major hurricane disasters. By knowing your vulnerability and what actions you should take, you can reduce the effects of a hurricane disaster. Hurricane hazards come in many forms, including storm surge, heavy rainfall, inland flooding, high winds, tornadoes, and rip currents. These in turn cause power outages, blocked roads, loss of essential services and job interruption. Listen To The Warnings! If you are told to evacuate, heed the warnings. This is non-negotiable. If we learned anything from Katrina, certainly this would be it. New Orleans did not get the storm head on but within 36 hours the levees broke and the city flooded. Page 8

here are a couple of good emergency planning web sites : SC Emergency Management Division American Red Cross

Have a Hurricane Kit Cash, batteries, flashlights, battery operated radio/television, bottled water, toilet paper, non-perishable foods such as cereal or crackers, canned goods, a can opener, a small cooler, candles and diapers, baby wipes, formula, baby food if you have small children. If you take prescription medicine, make sure you have extra on hand. This is especially important for people who are elderly or have medical issues that require a little extra care. It could be a few days before you can get to a store. Freeze Up Put your refrigerator at the coldest setting. Fill your bathtub with ice. Set your air conditioner really cold, too. This way, if you lose power it takes much longer to defrost and ruin everything in there! Make sure you buy a lot of food. It’s always better to have more than you need. Cans of tuna, bread, snacks and other non-perishable items. My pantry always has Pop Tarts & Peanut Butter. Charge Up Fully charge ALL of your electronic devices and then fill up your car and bike with gas. Secure Important Paperwork Place all your important papers in a secured plastic bag, box or even better, a small safe. Identification is difficult and time consuming to replace so be sure to include social security cards, birth certificates, titles or deeds to property, as well as your hurricane insurance policy, should you have one. Special family photos like wedding photos, baby pictures should also be considered. Go To Lowes/Home Depot or any lumber yard If you live east of I-95 I suggest boarding up windows. Even if the guy next door is laying in the sun in his hammock drinking a beer, out riding while you are preparing ( he will probably be sponging off of you if the storm hits ). Plywood is a coveted commodity for those of who decide to stay. Boarding up windows that will take the brunt of Saddle-Up & Lets-Ride

the wind and rain is a wise decision. If board is not available, protect your windows from the wind by crossing them ( X pattern) with layers of duct or packing tape. This will be enough protection for light-to-medium winds. Pets Don’t forget your pets! They get scared, just like we do. Keep this in mind and give them some extra TLC. Dogs are especially intuitive to weather conditions and might get more freaked out than you. They also get hot. Ice, water and extra treats and attention are a must. (Check out Marli’s Page 43) Prepare For Loss of Power Assume the power will be lost. It might not happen, but assuming you will lose power will prepare you much better. You will be hot, sticky and pissed off. Water, a bathtub of ice, lots of beer, wine and/ or hard liquor usually helps. If you have kids, you’re kind of screwed. They get really bored really fast. Board games, books, a fully charged iPad with tons of movies are your new BFFs. Stay Inside! Don’t go outside. We are curious creatures and want to see everything. Nowadays everyone wants to video storms and win $$$$ with the video. It is hands down the dumbest thing you can do. I cannot stress to you how many stories I’ve heard through the years of people getting struck by a tree, a down wire, flying debris. Stay inside, stay inside, stay inside! When you do go outside after the storm, assume All wires are live wires. Thousands of people have been electrocuted after major storms by touching live wires. When walking your dog, make sure you have them on a tight leash and monitor where they go. Power Inverter A cheap ( $20.00 ) inverter can make a huge difference. You can connect it to your truck, car or even your bike. It can charge your cell phones, run a lap top and depending on the size run lights and appliances. There are all sizes and types but I think this is an essential that everyone needs.

WILDMAN If you are looking for a little hard rock and roll, a little pop and some old school rock and roll, then you need to pick up a copy of this CD. Brent “Wildman” Enman is a major talent and calls Lancaster SC home. Brent’s musical passion is only rivaled by his love for riding. Along with his wife Elle, we talked of many trips the two have taken Brent has opened for such acts as Jackyl, Ratt and REO Speedwagon just to name a few. Please get to know Brent better in my next installment of….10 Questions with Brent “Wildman” Enman.

JUJU: It seems you have played with some musical greats. How did you end up getting into a solo career? BRENT: I just decided finally to take control of my own musical destiny . JUJU: Who were your musical influences? BRENT: I love the Beatles, Zepplin, Deep Purple and the Allman Brothers. JUJU: I detect a bit of an accent Brent. You aren’t from around here are you? BRENT: (laughing) Yeah, I am a Damn Yankee. I moved to Lancaster with my wife in 2005 from New Hampshire. I love it here. JUJU: So, Brent, I understand

you have a new CD out called “Wildman”. BRENT: Some of my friends gave me the name a while back. I was a bit wild back in my younger days. So the title just fit. I released it in March. There are 10 songs that I have written, produced and played all instruments on. I started with 13 songs, but narrowed it down to what I think are the 10 best. It was recorded in Charlotte, NC. JUJU: I was reading somewhere that you said your music, you considered “your musical soul on a disc” Which part of the musical process was the hardest? BRENT: The hardest thing is to write a really good song so I would have to say the writing. JUJU: At what age did you start playing all those instruments? BRENT: I am a drummer 1st and foremost. I started that at around age 11. I was playing in bands by the time I was 15. I wanted to write music, I knew that, but hard to write a song with just drums. So my Dad brought me home a $25 buck yard sale guitar and he and I sat down and learned the first few Chords of “Wildwood Flower”. That was it. I am completely self taught. It was so natural to me. It was like I always knew how to do it. JUJU: Tell me something you find unusual about your success. BRENT: I don’t know why, but the CD has done really well in the UK. I know they listen to a lot of old school rock and roll. I am thinking that has something to do with it. JUJU: So how did you get into

JuJu’s 10 questions with.. riding bikes? BRENT: My brother got me into it. He had one and it went from there. JUJU: What do you ride? BRENT: I have a 2007 Night Train. Elle, my wife rides a 1999 Dyna Low Rider. JUJU: Do you have a particular trip you can share with our readers? BRENT: Yeah, back in 2001, we rode to Canada. Went to Nova Scotia, there is an 11 mile bridge we rode. Man, it was beautiful and such a great ride. You can find Brent’s CD on several outlets or go to his website All CDs ordered from this website are signed by the WILDMAN himself! Don’t wait......

Piston Tailight __________ Handmade “Piston”

tailight w/ tag bracket This month I thought I’d bring you some, in the shop, how-to stuff. The big thing in the chopper world now seems to be recycling old parts into functional components for your bike. The gearhead mentality has really taken over in the “underground” chopper realm with old ‘n rusty being the caliber for these bikes. This tailight and plate bracket are made of ordinary take off parts. In the pic you can see the parts used laid out on a lift. An old evo sporty 883 piston(this piston shape works great), stock late model harley dual element turn signal, Harley 82-95 master cylinder sight glass/grommet and a lens from an old “sparto” tailight. Most indy shops have boxes of these old take off parts and will usually let them go on the cheap. The “sparto” tailight I picked up at a swap meet for three dollars knowing I just wanted the lens and ring. Start by grinding the rear of the piston skirt flat down to the wrist pin part of the casting. This will give a good surface to mount it and a nice area to drill and tap(1/4-20 threads) to attatch the piston to the tag plate(see pic). Then gutt the turn signal for use of the bulb socket and reflector housing. Make a template for the tag bracket using a license plate and the piston to pattern from. You Page 14 can also see the transfer template I made off the back of the

piston to mark the holes to be drilled for mounting to the tag plate. I cut the tag plate from some scrap 1/8” thick aluminum, using a jig saw and bent it in a vice. It is easier to drill the needed holes for the license plate, axle and bulb/socket before bending. A hole saw bit was used to drill the bulb socket/ reflector hole.

Make a large hole behind the lens by drilling several small holes side by side in a circle pattern. That will allow you to punch out the center of the circle and use a file or dremel tool to clean it up to a nice round circle. Next, center the lens, mark and tap a hole for the lens retaining ring. The piston will be removable for bulb replacement so any red lens could be permanently attatched using epoxy if a sparto lens is not used. As for license plate illumination, drill a 1/2” hole in the side of the piston, facing downward allowing the running light feature to also light up the tag. A Harley 82-95 master cylinder sight glass/ grommet can be fitted into the hole as a diffuser. The light socket/reflector is attatched using a 3M two part epoxy. The remaining wristpin holes are filled with a small freeze plug from an auto parts store and again held in with epoxy. The rear of the bulb socket can Saddle-Up & Lets-Ride be covered in electrical shrink tubing

and siliconed to seal. I purposely built this without using a miling machine, lathe, plasma cutter etc...just simple hand and power tools you would find in any chopper garage. The pic of the finished product shows how with a few tools, some stock take off/swap meet junk parts, and a few hours to kill, anybody could build a custom part for there scoot that functions properly and looks cool. Best of all, when somebody freaks out over it and ask where they can buy one you can tell ‘em “it aint for sale”. Keep the wrenches spin’n & the sparks a fly’n. Later Mojo

Dear Chrome, It never seizes to amaze me as to how far the reaches of your magazine go. In the ‘Land of Sand’ I received one of your issues in a care package and with in days it had made it around my camp twice. I also had some people tell me that they had read the magazine before and really enjoyed the fact that it was a true locals only magazine ( a lot of my unit is from SC). As you might be able to tell from some of the pics that I sent, Page 2 Girl Jordan had a great effect on moral around the camp as well (I didn’t have to smile for that pic, it was already on my face). Well, I have to go but keep up the good work Page 16

and if you can spare a few more magazines our way... they will not go to waste. Keep it right side up and I’ll keep ‘their’ heads down and in the dirt. S. Williams Busting mine, to kick theirs!

NORTH ANSON -- Taavi Kaldro, 74, died July 31, 2012, at his home, with his family by his side. He was born in Tallinn, Estonia, on April 6, 1938, the son of Nicolai and Nadezda (Paivel) Kaldro. He married Mary Lou (Thorner) Kaldro, June 1956, in Boston.

He was a veteran serving in the Massachusetts Army National Guard from 1957 to 1963. Our Dad was an excellent tool and die maker for Polaroid. He excelled and took pride as a scuba diver for the South Shore Neptunes in Quincy, Mass., through the ‘60s and early ‘70s. He held the position as captain for the city of Quincy Civil Defense and Rescue Unit in the ‘60s. He was forced to give those up because of heart disease. Dad was very proud of his Estonian heritage and came to this country in March 1951 aboard the USS Harry Taylor, landing in New York Harbor. He had many stories of having to flee his home country of Estonia and living in displaced persons camps in Germany for six years. He was a wealth of knowledge, well-read, and a couple of his favorite poems are “Annabel Lee” and “The Raven.” Dad had a unique sense of humor, to which all of you who had the pleasure of knowing him can attest. RIP Dad ~ Yank CRMC

WORDS TO THE WISE! When its time to purchase new brakes, aftermarket brakes are the best choice. Either you need new brakes or trying to improve your braking, the Þrst thing you should do is upgrade to steel braided lines. They are thinner than stock lines and are not susceptible to stretching and weathering like stock lines. The decreased diameter of the lines allow for more Page 34


Bike Security

Motorcycle theft is a big problem. Almost 50,000 motorcycles were stolen in 2011. Thats more than $325 million in losses. Since 2007, there have been more than 236,000 motorcycles stolen. How are you protecting your bike? Your motorcycle is your pride and joy. You lose it and you lose alot more than that. The averge sports bike these days average $12,000 before customization. Then add another $3000+ for all the extras like paint schemes, chrome, swingarms, safety gear, etc. Here are a few things that may help secure your motorcycle; 1) Use already in place security features; ignition locks. 2) Lock it down; use chains or U-Bars. 3) Use alarms/immobilizers. 4) LoJACK system! -Da Don

concentrated ßow of brake ßuid and lessen the chance of air bubbles in the line. Also aftermarket rotors are better because they are thicker than stock. They are more costly but well worth it. The thickness of the rotor allows pads to last longer. This upgrade is especially good for those who ride with one rotor on the front tire. Thanks Stacks!

Trikes: Local Boy Makes Good This is just about as slick as it gets. The Zendt family, Craig, Andrew, Melany (pictured), and Tina of Northridge Custom Cycles just set up shop in May at 1919 Savannah Highway. I fell over the location on the way to Charleston and was I surprised! These guys are the real deal, right from their mechanics, trained by HD, he received his PHD certification from Harley, to the incredibly laid back, relaxed atmosphere of the place. They use a dynamometer for their tune ups and motor rebuilds, a device recommended for Harley owners or anyone wanting a professional tune up. People just come in to talk shop and chill. You aren’t supposed to bother the mechanics while they

Charleston Chrome Crew

work, but the shop is open to the showroom so you can see work in progress and chat! Very cool! These guys didn’t make me feel like a next door neighbor; it was more like family. Service is top notched and real reasonable. If you have questions on work you are doing yourself, they are all ears and will help. What floored me were the custom Zero Engineering Motorcycles. All have Harley parts, are easy to work on, and are in the NADA book. This is custom at its’ best. A branded, custom bike that is insurable, capable of being financed, and resalable. Hard to do with a custom product. Stop by and check them out on Saturday Sept. 15th for the Customer Appreciation Day & Swap Meet.

Did I forget the Frankenstein trike conversions? Nearly any bike can be converted to this very sleek, chopped down bike. Melany’s bike is just that. They feature Frankenstein, Kuryakyn, and many more. I give this place 5 stars and 3 thumbs up if I had a third thumb. To all my buddies down range, stay safe. Leland “Old Spook” Landesberg

pet tips

& YOUR PETS By: Marli, Santee Chrome Crew

I don’t get paid to ride my motorcycle, so like most folks, I also have a day job, gotta keep gas in the scoot. After chatting with RubyRed one afternoon and sharing a little about my work (w/Columbia Animal Shelter), she asked if I would put together a few quick tips, facts, etc. for each issue about the world of animal care and control and caring for our pets. So, here we go..#1 Even though hurricane

season is well under way (in fact it started early this year) we certainly aren’t out of the woods yet. Hurricane season officially started June 1 and won’t end until November 30. And right now we are going through the peak of the season. So, with that in mind, I thought it would be a good time to share a few tips to help take care of your pets should you face a disaster. For starters and probably the first thing people think of is food and water. Not only do you need to store enough for you and your family, but also for your pet. It is generally suggested that you have at least five days worth of food and water for each

of your pets. Always make sure your pet is wearing current I.D. in case you become separated, whether at home – waiting out a disaster - or while traveling to get away from a disaster. Not only should you include your contact information, but also a third party should you be unreachable at some point due to the disaster. Tags are great for immediate identification, but having a microchip implanted is a great form of permanent I.D. as well. It’s also a great idea to carry current photos of your pet with you during a disaster. Should you become separated it will help identify your pet and even prove ownership when claiming a lost pet. Make sure you have the appropriate collars, leashes and carriers if you have to travel. Naturally these will be needed to contain your pet and carriers can also double as a place for your pet to sleep while traveling. If possible also take along comfort items for your pet. Items such


as their favorite toys, blankets, etc. This will help lower your pet’s stress level. Also, don’t forget any medications your pet may be taking. These are just a few but very important tips. With recent hurricanes, particularly Katrina, it has been brought to light just how important it is to make sure we not only take care of ourselves in the event of a disaster, but also our pets. There are now even government mandates in place for communities to make sure plans are in place to help people and pets navigate disasters. Even with these in place, it is still ultimately each pet owner’s responsibility to make sure they are prepared. So, if you haven’t given it much thought, take a few minutes to put your plan in place. Keep in mind that if you have to travel, most hotels/motels are pet friendly during a disaster. You can find more tips at Stay safe out there and thanks for being a pet owner.

Dear Dr. Dillagaf, Please help me find a way to thank motorcyclist who stopped to help my Mother push her car out of the traffic. She is 83 years old and told me she sat in the heat trying to get it started while trucks and cars pulled behind her blowing the horns and yelling. She said about 50 motorcycles came (I’m sure it was probably only a dozen or so). She is a strong independent type, but was in tears by this time, they pushed her car to safety and took total control of traffic on the off ramp, at first she was afraid but they were so nice and fixed her battery. Mom said one young fellow about 50, sent another man across the bridge to get her a cold coke. I asked if she got a name or anything, “they were all the same dressed in the same uniform an real big and mean looking but just as sweet as pie”. This happened on the bridge at I-77 near Great Falls SC. I got a magazine at the dealership thinking she may see something that told us who they were, but no. I have a newfound respect for the motorcycle riders. Thank you for helping a dear sweet elderly lady in distress. Ralph Knight Murrells Inlet, SC Ralph, They probably just thought she had the beer. All jokes aside, in this day and age everyone is so afraid to help people, out of fear of getting sued, that your mother may still be on the side of the road if it weren’t for the brotherhood that bikers share which gives us a greater sense of community than the common citizen. I can promise Page 46

I F YO U A R E E A S I LY O F F E N D E D T U R N T H E PA G E N O W you that those bikers aren’t looking for praise for something that comes natural. If you want to thank them then just keep telling your story and show support for Biker Awareness by coming to events, who knows, you may end up on a bike helping someone yourself one day.
