ello everyone and welcome to May. We got lucky this year in the motorcycle industry at least here in New Jersey. The weather has been warm and dry. Just what we needed after the mild Winter we had .You may notice that we have made an up grade in the paper for the magazine every year we try to make changes for the better. This time we upgraded the cover stock and some of the interior pages. There is a lot going on around the State in May as you can see our event calendar is pretty full this Month.. So get out and support some of the events in your area or make a day of it and take a ride across the state and check out something new.

STYLING CHIEF WILLIE G. DAVIDSON TO RETIRE AFTER 49-YEAR LEGENDARY DESIGN CAREER

Willie G. to Remain Involved as Brand Ambassador, and in Special Design Projects as Chief Styling Officer Emeritus Motorcycle Industry Visionary Built Unrivaled Motorcycle Design Group, Established Company’s Pre-Eminence in Styling Leadership. After nearly 50 years as head of styling, Willie G. Davidson is retiring from Harley-Davidson (NYSE:HOG) April 30, 2012. Willie G., Senior Vice President and Chief Styling Officer, is widely recognized as a legend in the world of motorcycling and motorcycle design. He will continue his involvement with the company as an ambassador at motorcycle rallies and events, and through special design projects as Chief Styling Officer Emeritus. “Throughout my life, I have been truly fortunate to have the opportunity to marry my passion for design with my love for this amazing brand that runs so deeply in my veins,” Willie G. said. “What’s most rewarding has been to see the impact our motorcycles have on the lives of our customers. Everything we do in styling is based on the notion that form follows function, but both report to emotion.” Over the course of his career, Willie G., 78, built a design team at Harley-Davidson that established the company’s unrivaled leadership in custom, cruiser and touring motorcycles. Today, the styling department is led by 19-year company veteran Ray Drea, Vice President and Director of Styling, who has worked collaboratively with Willie G. in the development of numerous milestone vehicles. “It has been my privilege to work alongside many inM a y, 2 012

MEDIA ALERT

credibly talented people at this company and I have great confidence the future of Harley-Davidson’s design leadership will continue to grow in its pre-eminence,” Willie G. said. “I look forward to spending time with riders at rallies and to my involvement in special design projects.” “Few individuals have the kind of impact on an organization, a brand and a lifestyle that Willie G. has had,” said Keith Wandell, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Harley-Davidson, Inc. “Everyone with a love for motorcycles owes a great deal to his vision and talent, and all of us have been blessed by his presence. His legacy will continue to grow, thanks to the talent he has nurtured in the HarleyDavidson styling studio.” Willie G. has long served as ambassador of HarleyDavidson at rallies around the world – meeting riders, talking to customers, lending his famous signature to jackets, and setting an example of being close to the customer that has become one of the hallmarks of the company. Grandson of one of the company’s founders, William A. Davidson, and son of William H. Davidson, its second president, Willie G. joined the company as its first head of styling in 1963. With responsibility for the look of all Harley-Davidson motorcycles, landmark motorcycles to emerge from Willie G’s styling studio team include the Super Glide, which established the factory custom category in 1971, Low Rider, Heritage Softail Classic, Fat Boy, V-Rod and Street Glide. He is one of 13 HarleyDavidson executives who purchased the company from AMF, Inc. in 1981.

ASK THE ATTORNEY BY: LEE D. GABER, ESQUIRE 1-888-CYCLE-LAW • LeeGaber@cycleattorney.com • www.cycleattorney.com Given that riding season is finally in bloom, I want to touch on the topic of DWI/DUI as many riders will end up at destinations where alcohol is being served. I feel that it is my duty to inform all of you that the penalties for DUI/DWI are getting harsher and more expensive every year. Though I have written on this topic in the past, it again merits discussion given the .08 limit in most every state. For many of us, this means that two beers or drinks in rapid succession will put us very close to the limit, especially if not ingested with food. While the penalties for a .08 to a .10 may not be terrible in some states, especially if it’s your first offense, two beers often leads to three or four and that’s when we start getting into trouble. The penalties for driving under the influence vary widely from state to state however, in NJ, in most cases, a first offense will trigger a minimum seven (7) month license suspension and fines upwards of $1,000.00 plus attorneys fees. Adding insult to injury, if you are a PA resident charged with DWI while riding in New Jersey, you will not have the opportunity, even if it is your first offense, to utilize the ARD program usually offered to first offenders in PA and in most cases will have your license suspended for one (1) full year in PA. Normally first offenders in PA, not involved in accident, will be eligible for the ARD program which requires drug and alcohol evaluation and fines but rarely a license suspension. However, this program is only available one (1) time, after that, in PA if you are convicted of DUI within the next ten (10) years, you will do a minimum of five (5) days in prison and receive an automatic twelve (12) month license suspension along with extensive fines and penalties.

FA S T L A N E B I K E R

If your blood alcohol is higher than .10 and you are charged with a second offense within a ten (10) year period in PA, the mandatory jail term grows to thirty (30) days, and another one year license suspension. Similarly in New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland, for each subsequent offense, the fines, potential jail time and the license suspensions grow harsher with each offense. Now I know that every one of you reading this column understands that if you are convicted of DWI/DUI, there are penalties. However, experience has taught me that most of the public doesn’t understand how severe the penalties and license suspensions can be. Furthermore, unlike most other criminal offenses, there is very little room to plea bargain on a DUI/ DWI, as most states have mandator y fines, jail terms and license suspensions. As a result, many clients are very upset when they learn that they may lose their license for up to a year, even for a first offense. Given that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, please be careful and if you know you may be drinking, a designated driver is always a great idea!!!

MAKING AThe DIFFERENCE Calling

By: BoB “Bikerwolf ” Bryant Bryant Bob “Bikerwolf”

AOld backand country road, A crippled old church ornery Scoot parked in shade of mammoth old Birch Stubborn asthe a rock Ridin’ the wind, his heart limp cold as ice Shaved head, Biker Thought this a good place to rest for the night

A wonder he can walk

I answered It Read, a calling long, long ago A calling extended from the open road ------------------------------------------------To my side is myfrom brandleather, new church Hidden messages iron, and ink In my hand, a seedling birchdidn’t have to think I answered it immediately,

I plant this tree for the simple reason The ragged old church all weathered and worn It will grow tall and strong throughout the seasons scarsyears before he was born HeTattoos knew it and was built, A decision confirmed by my very soul HeStories wondered many hypocrites had walked through it’s doors forhow each Time andistime again as as theis scoot starts to roll Birch a strong wood, my faith Had cast not just onehe’s stone, but one and many more. You’re wrong, right The Itsmell of nature will stand tall fordown many aevery day highway On that he’ll preach is alsoofthe reason used every it to build myday cross The Itthrill the ride Iwith new He lit him a smoke, and started a fire So it will last, for souls that are lost Un-strapped his bedroll, took a look at his tires He’s ridden scoot was forty yearstread Satisfied that thearubber, stillplus showing People I’ve come to know as un-blood kin For I know that one day, a wanderer like I used to be times, heartaches, HeGood sat down to rest, lit another laughter for his headand tears The Will sun seek thatthe has made of my skin shade of aleather mighty tree Don’t give a damn, just the shirt off his back Break downs that have left me on themyside of the road I want him to feel at home if he enters church HeFinesse? stared at the church, as the smoke filled mind Never quite developed thehis knack Often times this life being a heavy, heavy load Therefore I’m planting this young seedling birch Bringing back demons from roads left behind He rose to his feet, headed to the church Butsatevery Santa it give him the shade he that needsdrop tears That in theyear shadehe’s of the mammoth old Birch BlueMay skies, gray skies, and that skies At his Granddaughter’s school As he seeks relief from the days heat Freedom my passion, Cagers my fear If this traveler’s soul should be lost Kindergartners know him as on in The doors were missing so he walked Knowing any moment could be my last ride May he enter my church and see the wooden cross Wondered areCool old bikers welcome, let out a grin Grandpa I try to keep it real, try to exhume Biker pride Through broken glass, days last light shined Let him know it was built for him HeGruff, thoughtgrizzled to himself, nothing much left behind that his future not look grim BeenSocrucified, for will failing to conform Graybeard and all As he in rides may he always thinkmany back a storm The only thing left that had not paid times cost Rejoiced theaway sunshine, Rode out upoftheir worldwas a solid wooden cross Of thefrom shade bad and cross supplied by “ from Reverend Jack “ AtLights the front the church, Learned decisions made within downonthe It Simply was just walking barely hanging the hall ragged old wall Have ridden to help others, Have crossed the line of sin May this traveler let his past go Never less it was hanging, as if it just wouldn’t fall Make amends with the demons filling his soul A classroom helper three days a week I have bought manyon tears to those I love Realize that God’s his side The old road tramp notice that the demons in his soul Finger painting, graham crackers, hide n’ seek If shook in his heart, he’ll just the abidedevil, talked to God above Have hands with Seemed to have backed off, and his heart felt less cold Curriculum vs. Biker ol’ school For the first time in years he didn’t feel so lost I answered a calling long, long ago computers, hi-tech andold Grandpa Cool Now take care myfrom brother AsIt’s he stood there looking at that wooden cross A calling extended the open road As you go on your way Just always remember HeHe saw an old photo in the on the ground considers them hiscorner family Memorial What “ Ride Brother Jack “ Had to say HeMore walked overthan to it, picked often not it up as he kneeled down Lee ‘Buddah’ Haverstick InHe’s the picture was a young man, an old bike and seedling Birch their ‘bonus’ grandpa ----------------------------------------------------Standing beside A beautiful new church

For some, all they’ve got

It is in memory I ride today

The oldwho bikerfought slept, peacefully that nightand paved our way The old biker was amazed as he muttered “ Well, I’ll be “ For those for our country of life As he realized Reverend Jack was right HeLessons recognized the scoot as being from the year twenty three Don’t tread on me their told Next morning before he motto hit the wind HeAre flipped old photo, was writing on the back not the solely boundthere in text We ride here free and they on streets He emptied his weed with a big ol’ grin of gold The first thing to catchdown his eye was a signature “ Reverend Jack “ They’re handed

One generation to the next

The old biker laughed before he started to read Partially at the photo, more so from the weed mostonce important things we front learnwall HeThe glanced again at the battered Are seldom taught in school He was truly amazed at the cross that wouldn’t fall

They come from those who touch our lives

HeThose turned like his attention again to the words on the back Grandpa Cool The ones he knew that were written by “Reverend Jack “

These items include chrome-plated stainless steel hardware when required for installation. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for fitment details.

NEW RIDER RUNNING BOARDS FROM HARLEY-DAVIDSON

Expanded Size Provides Room to Stretch Legs and Move Feet for Long-Ride Comfort The new Rider Running Boards (P/N 50500158, $199.95) from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories® give owners of many Harley-Davidson FL Softail® and Touring motorcycle models more room to stretch legs and move feet on long runs, which can relieve muscle tension and reduce rider fatigue. Rider Runner Boards are four inches longer (one inch in forward and three inches rearward) and a half-inch wider than Original Equipment rider footboards. The easy-to-install kit includes left and right footboard pans with vibration-isolated inserts that are styled to complement the Crested Bar & Shield controls collection, or most other chrome and rubber collections. When used in conjunction with available HYPERLINK “https://www.h-dmedia.com/ hd_mediasite/parts/2011/1130b.asp” Extended Reach Foot Controls, a long-legged rider can have even more room to stretch out. Rider Running Boards fit most 2000-later FL Softail and Touring models, but may not fit with some accessories. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for fitment details.

NEW BLACK ICE FINISH FOR NINE-SPOKE HARLEY-DAVIDSON WHEELS Proprietary Treatment Produces a Highly Reflective Surface with Incredible Depth The new Nine-Spoke Cast Wheel in Black Ice (P/N 43300114 17-inch front, P/N 40900111 16-inch rear; $549.95 each) is the latest custom wheel set from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories®. Black Ice is a proprietary treatment that combines incredible depth with a highly reflective surface. While Black Ice may look like it is black chrome, it is not a chrome process. Styled to match the popular Nine-spoke design featured on traditional Touring models, these wheels are manufactured with special tooling developed specifically to give a near-perfect finish without the waves created when polishing the Original Equipment cast wheel. The rib on the Original Equipment wheel spoke has been removed to provide a smooth uninterrupted look and countless hours of polishing result in a superior finish. Fits 2009-later Touring models (except Trike). It also fits 2009-2011 Sidecars. The Black Ice finish is also now offered on the Airstrike custom wheel for many Harley-Davidson Touring models, and on the Reaper custom wheel for many Harley-Davidson Dyna models.
