The Man Behind The Movement By: Stephanie Hampton

H

e rides a Harley Davidson. That’s what he loves! That’s what he lives by! So, when asked if Fast Harleys Only movement is specific to Harley Davidson riders, his answer was NO!

I

had the chance to speak to the man behind Fast Harleys Only, Marcell Tillman, AKA Big Cell of Kingz of the South MC in Atlanta, GA. I wanted to know exactly what was Fast Harleys Only, what inspired it, and what he attributes to the large following.

page 6

F

ast Harleys Only or FHO, was started some five years ago as a means to bring back the fun to the Atlanta Motorcycle Set. Big Cell stated that things had changed from the way it was “back in the days”, and he wanted to do something that would make being a part of the community exciting again. He wanted to do something that would also bring other riders from other states together. He would use this forum to connect with other bikers from different areas of the country that shared a love for riding.

A

s he frequently traveled to other states, it was his goal to bridge the gap, aligning other bikers to a similar cause. Fast Harleys Only started as his connection to out of state bikers, allowing him to meet new people as he traveled. Big Cell states that he has met people through FHO, that he would not have otherwise met and have created many lasting friendships. He also stated, because of the FHO Movement, he now gets paid to do what he loves, and that’s ride his motorcycle.


Dedicated to those that love to ride!

F

ast Harleys Only catered to just that-Fast Harleys. From its initial start, it was all about who had the fastest bikes and the biggest motors, which coincided with the FHO slogan, “Run What You Brung.” It created camaraderie within the motorcycle community, as this was something new and exciting that many enjoyed. The trash talking, the friendly bets, the competition.....all largely played a part in what has now become a nationwide movement.

W

hen asked what attributes to his large FHO following, Big Cell states that his presence on social media has played a large part with his fan base. His Youtube channel, Facebook group, and Instagram page have all contributed to his success and loyal following. Big Cell states that he tries to be consistent with his videos to keep the fans engaged and he continuously support those that support his endeavors. He expressed that he was initially criticized because FHO was specific to Harleys, which left out a number of riders that may have been interested, however, the movement has grown to mean so much more than racing Harleys. FHO is bridging a gap amongst all riders, no matter what they ride and has brought the attention to common causes within the motorcycle community. Big Cell also mentioned, since the start of FHO, many have switched to riding Harleys.

“I was criticized for FHO being only about Harleys”

GY Sept 2016 Issue 01

A

s for the future of Fast Harleys Only, Big Cell states that he wants to work on branding FHO, wanting it to be known internationally. He states that his goal is to be known worldwide for his movement and eventually want to create a reality show. He seeks to show the world that bikers are every day people, with real professions, and to dispel the negative stigma that surrounds biker communities.

B

ig Cell also wanted to thank his fans for all the support they have provided to FHO. Whether it be through viewing his videos, or wearing his paraphernalia, he appreciates the love. He also wanted to thank his parents, who are his biggest supporters and his wife, Queen (VP of Harleys Angels MC) for their continued support. In addition, he wants to thank his friends, Randy Hogan (Snowman), Deshea Hickson, Josie Johnson and King Rover (VP of Kings of the South MC) for their support.

W

hat started as a Harleys only past time, has now grown into a country wide movement, connecting bikers from all walks of life. We look forward to the future of Fast Harleys Only and hope that Big Cell continues in his endeavors.

Fifty years of anything is certainly a blessing! Whether it be fifty years of marriage, fifty years of business, or simply fifty years of existence! In celebration of her 50th birthday, Sunshine Rogers decided to ride to the lower 48 states on her motorcycle Fatty, in hopes of gaining a stronger relationship with God, through prayer and conversation.

She Rode To 48 States To Celebrate 50 Years! A Journey With Faith and Prayer To 48 States! Q: What inspired you to ride to the lower 48 states on your motorcycle? A: I wanted to celebrate my 50th birthday. I have done so much in life, so I wanted to use the time to have a conversation with God and talk about what he wanted me to do with the rest of my life. I wanted to connect to him spiritually and do something that I love doing at the same time. Q: How did you prepare for the long trip?

page 12

A: To help prepare, I spoke to Highway Smiley to plan a route for the trip. Once I had my route together, I was ready to go. I spoke

to him again before I left to make sure I had the route correct. I didn’t use any apps or anything. I took two cell phones with me so I could use one for the GPS but one of the phones went out. Q: When did your trip start and ended and what kind of motorcycle did you ride? A: I rode a 2004 Fat Boy Soft Tail, Harley Davidson. I started on June 3rd from Houston, Texas and ended in Redding, California on June 24th. Q: To do a trip of this nature solo is impressive. How long have you been riding motorcycles?

A: I have been riding for about 15 years. My Softail that I rode on my trip had 106,000 miles when I started my 48 states. Q: Did you encounter any bad weather or issues that delayed your trip? A: At the beginning of the trip, I was stuck in Alabama for two days due to the weather and bad storms. I also had a flat tire once and other minor mechanical issues. But thanks to God, he continued to send people to help me right when I needed it. I was praying my entire trip, and I knew that he would work it out, so I wasn’t worried.

Dedicated to those that love to ride!

Q: What was the most memorable for you on your trip across the country? A: I was amazed at all the angels that God kept sending my way. I was stopped in Kansas by a state police, and didn’t realize that he was following me. When he pulled me over, he asked why didn’t I stop for him. I told him that I was just deep in prayer. I told him the truth. He let me go with a warning. My entire trip was about me growing closer to God. I learned as I rode and my faith in God continued to grow. Q: What was the total number of miles for your trip? A: In total, I rode 9,139 miles. Q: Even though your purpose for the trip wasn’t for the patch, how does it feel to be the first female to receive the red star Highway Smiley patch?

A: I didn’t know at the time that I was going to be the first female until you told me about when I talked to you after my trip had started. I appreciate everything that Smiley does for our community and I appreciate earning my patch. Q: Anything else you would like to add? A: I wanted to thank all those that followed me and prayed for me. God truly blessed me. He allowed me to meet new people along the way that I wouldn’t have met. I want to thank the Afro Dogs in Youngstown, Ohio. They took my bike and serviced it from tire to tire. They found a few things wrong but they made sure that they checked everything. The changed my oil and realigned my tires and also had to replace a screw in my primary. Editor Note: Sunshine Rogers is gearing up for her second run to the lower 48 states.

oughly 90 miles north of Cuba, sits the most southern part of the United States, Key West, Florida. As part of the Florida Keys, it’s actually closer to Havana, Cuba than it is to Miami, Florida. The entire island is roughly 4 miles in length.

T

here on the island sits a concrete replica of a buoy painted with the words, “Southernmost Point in the Continental U.S.A.” This landmark has become a major attraction to tourist and motorcycle enthusiasts.

A

nother landmark that has grown popular in the motorcycle community is the Mile Marker Zero sign. It sits at the corner of Whitehead and Fleming St. in Key West. It is also where U.S. Route 1 ends, which is the highway taken from Miami to Key West. The highway is also known as Overseas Highway, and is approximately 113 miles long.

Whether you love them or hate them, you have to respect that Rarebreed Motorcycle Club is taking the country by storm. In recent years, they have gone from just a few chapters in their organization, to twenty-one current chapters, and counting. Rarebreed MC is currently led by long term members, Fast Fred (National President) and Big E (National VP). Both men are responsible for the leadership and guidance of what is internally known, as THE EMPIRE!.

he men of Rarebreed MC are known for having some of the baddest Harley Davidson motorcycles around, but more importantly, the organization is known for riding their motorcycles. It’s not uncommon to see them pounding across country, in any given weather at any given time of the year. Seasonal riding is nonexistent in this club. As members of the organization, they are rewarded for ground pounding through the presentation of various patches. This is one way that the men stay motivated and committed to upholding what it means to be a BREED! They are most known for their motto “EARNED NOT GIVEN” and it is a statement that they don’t take lightly at all! page 17

At Sixteen: Riding Is A Family Affair

My parents were my gateway to riding motorcycles. They have been doing it for so long. I am glad to be apart of something that they love!

By: Stephanie Hampton

A

s a child, our parents are our heroes. We look

up to them, often imitating and wanting to be and do exactly as they do. They share with us, their passions and most times, it either ignites a fire or persuades us to go in another direction. Either way, we ultimately decide…...

D

elshateki Izquierdo, known to most as Dirty Bird, has been surrounded by motorcycles all of her life. She states that her parents were the gateway to her love for riding. Her father, Big Hump, a member of Sons of Solomon MC and mother, Thunder Kat, president of Blaque Pearls MC in Killeen, Texas, both introduced Dirty Bird to riding at a very early age. As an avid biker, Thunder Kat would ride to events with her on back, not wanting to exclude her from one of the things she loved most. Dirty Bird enjoyed riding, however, she often became bored being on the back. She decided instead of being a passenger, she would learn to ride her own.

page 24

H

er parents purchased her a Harley Davidson 883 Sportster. Because she started riding prior to her endorsement [around the neighborhood], the name “Dirty Bird” was given to her, symbolizing riding “dirty”. However, before her first official trip, at the age of sixteen, she obtained her driver’s license and then her motorcycle endorsement. She was now ready for her upcoming trip.

H

er first trip would be with her mother, Thunder Kat, and a group of women riders. They rode roughly seven hours, to Little Rock, Arkansas from Killeen, Texas in celebration of International Female Ride Day. The ladies would stop every 100 to 110 miles, ensuring that Dirty Bird was ok and that she was taking breaks as needed. The trip was a success as Dirty Bird was able to return home safely the following day. With her first trip under her belt, she was already excited to start planning her next trip, which would be taken with her dad within the next few months.


GetYonder For her second trip, Dirty Bird, along with her father and uncle, Big Hump and Papi Chulo, also a member of Sons of Soloman MC, rode to the most southern point of the United States…….Key West, Florida. From there, they would ride up to Deals Gap, North Carolina to visit the Tail of the Dragon. Prior to arriving to Key West, they stopped in Orlando, to visit family members, also allowing Dirty Bird to take a break from the highway. They stayed there for a day or so before heading south to Key West, Florida. The trip from Orlando to Key West would be roughly six and half hours one way. Once they arrived at Mile Zero, they took a few photos, ate and headed back to Orlando. Surprisingly, Dirty Bird was able to handle the quick turn around, and arrived back safely.

After leaving Orlando, they headed to Atlanta, GA where I was able to meet the three of them. I was excited, as it was my first time seeing Dirty Bird. While in Atlanta, they were able to get a good night’s rest, and continue their trip the next morning to Deals Gap, North Carolina in hopes of tackling the Tail of the Dragon. The Dragon consists of 11 miles of continuous curves, 318 curves to be exact. Nonetheless, Dirty Bird, her father and uncle made the trip safely and headed back to Atlanta, GA for another night of rest before heading back to Texas.

both parents. They would ride from Killeen, Texas to New Mexico to visit the monument that shows the geographical location where Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado all meet. In addition to visiting the Four Corners Monument, they would also ride to visit the Grand Canyon. This was one of the most exciting trips for Dirty Bird, as she was able to share these moments riding with both parents. To this day, Dirty Bird has traveled to 10 states via motorcycle. When asked what she enjoys the most about riding, she states she enjoys the scenery, riding, listening to her music, but most of all, she enjoys the memories with her family. She expressed that it’s something that her family has always loved to do and she’s grateful to be able to ride her own motorcycle and share these moments with them. When asked, where she wanted to ride to next, she replied, “Delaware”, because it’s similar to her name, Delshateki!

Dirty Bird’s third trip would be to the Four Corners Monument, which was one of the places she was excited about visiting. This time, it would be with page 25
