Why do we call the hot, sultry days of summer “dog days?” Because between July and early September the hot sultry weather of summer occurs. During this peroiod, Sirius, the “dog star,” rises and sets with the sun. During late July Sirius is in conjunction with the sun, and the ancients believed that its heat added to the heat of the sun, creates a stretch of hot and sultry weather. They named this period of time, from 20 days before the conjunction to 20 days after, “dog days” after the dog star, Sirus “Beancan”

Scootergoods Magazine Is 7 Years Old
Scootergoods Magazine - 7 yrs in the making & continues to grow. I’m looking forward to the next 7yrs! Scootergoods Magazine - Sure is not your everyday run of the mill motorcycle magazine. We all ride & support all our advertiser’s with their events, along with bringing events to them. Why support an establishment that is not biker friendly if you don’t have to. With Scootergoods you know who is biker friendly & who is not. Granted some may not like us, saying were too risque & too rough around the edges - oh well. Then don’t read it. At least we are consistent & don’t change directions by which time of the year it is or which way the
wind has been blowing. Over the years Don V has committed to not sugar coating everything - telling it like it is & has allowed the staff to do the same. That is what attracted me to the magazine to begin with. Old Skool dedication,changing with the times as improvements arise but doesn’t change what’s not broken. You know a Scootergoods event when you see it but never know what going to happen next! There may not be all the ﬂash & glitter but who needs it to have a good time. Take me for example - I may be a asshole but at least I’m a consistant asshole. With that said; I would like to thank Don V & all the staff for the opportunity, for the experences & for all the new people that I have met over the years. A lot of good friendships have also developed over the years - without them none of it would have been possible - “hope it all continues” - where will we all be at in the next 7yrs ? God willing - I’ll still be saddeling “Da Deuce” up for our next Scootergoods adventure with the wind in the hair (what’s left of it) heading down new pavement (as well as some old) , still jaw ﬂappin about the good old times while sucking down a cold bottle of suds w/ friends & checking out all the Tits -n- Butts. Be safe - Brother John

Not all women like to wear pasties,but some do. And for those who choose to we will continue to publish photos of you in them. For one thing our readers like it and it doesnâ€™t hurt the staffs feelings either. So we have decided it is time to feature some pasties shots every month. In our travels about this great state and the U.S.A. we will have our eyes open and cameras ready for PASTIES of any sort. Store Bought, Redneck, or whatever comes about.

Well, the July Mystery ride was for those who REALLY like to ride. We had a group of riders from all over, including Australia! A big “G’day” to Hollywood & Bev! The Pine Grove Lounge in Wildwood was a nice ride just to get things started. Of course the girls are gorgeous and serving Bloody Marys for just $2.50. I took us on an indirect route to the Thunder Inn about a 45 min ride. Darcy & Kelly were ready for us with the puddin shots and Chrissy had cooked up a big batch of clam chowder! This ride was already awesome and it’s only the second stop. (Cont. Pg. 32)

Bam, another year. It’s hard to believe that Scootergoods has rounded off no. 7. Seems just like yesterday I got a chance to cover a story for Scootergoods and never stopped writing for the best independent magazine out there with a team of real red blooded American bikers. I would like to thank Don V for letting me ramble on about things in the New York area and getting to read about it. At the same time I would like to take this moment to give a shout out to all my fellow Scootergoods brothers and sisters that make the magazine so successful. It is also the 7th Anniversary of our late brother’s untimely demise, Indian Larry but the legacy he left and the path he put us on in the life styles of the biker world was priceless. Bobby Seeger and Elisa have made this possible by keeping his spirit in their hearts and sharing it with all of us. Elisa’s shop at the corner of Gasoline Alley with the original Indian Larry logo offers tons of great apparel and memorabilia in his name. Not to mention so much more stuff and Bobby with his awesome custom bikes that emulate our late friend Larry’s style and originality. His shop can build you whatever you like from the frame up with an old school style to turn everyone’s head. (Cont. Next Pg.)
The 8th Annual Indian Larry Grease Monkey party is Saturday September 24, 2011 at 400 Union Avenue, Brooklyn, NY (718) 609-9184 or click www.indianlarry.com for more information.

Just a shout out: My buddy Mike Ponytail got smacked down by a cage Mid June. He’s okay, ﬁve broken ribs and a broken shoulder. He earned his broken wings. Hope you feel better bro! Hope all you Scootergoods fans out there keep an eye out for those a-holes. They’re everywhere, be safe. NYC Irish

Charlie W. On Saturday July 10th, Chris, Benje, and I rode down to the Sand Trap Bar and Grill to check out the “home-made bikini” contest. The weather gave us a break , so we left Mike’s Friendly Pub and headed south. When we arrived the place was ﬁlling up fast. The girls were busy both inside and out. We said hello to the owner Jeff, who was busy making sure everything was taken care of. The weather was really nasty, but I counted 80 bikes in the parking lot. The food of choice was “drunken chicken,” and it was great with all the ﬁxin’s. Lawless Intent kept the crowd jammin by playing some great tunes. Before we knew it, it was time for the home-made bikini contest. The competition was really ﬁerce, but Samantha came up with the ﬁrst place prize, with Bella Donna coming in second, Candi coming in third, and last but still a winner was Jeanice. The girls and the crowd had a great time. One of the bikini’s was made of edible material, and the water kept melting it,so you can imagine what happened after getting wet from the (Cont. Pg. 31)
(Charlie W. from 29) squirt gun.. We also had John and Free Wheelin Franklin from scootergoods show up to party with us. Since only four contestants were in the bikini contest Jeff also held a “best ink” contest, which was a great idea. I was not present to account for the winners, but I was able to capture some of the ink on my camera. If you have not been to the Sand Trap Bar & Grill, you need to come and visit them on the east side of hwy 19 between Weeki Wachee & hwy 98 just south of Homosassa. Jeff and the staff will show you a good time. Relax, sit back, and have a cold one in the laid back comfort of the Sand Trap. Tell them Charlie W. sent ya! Keep reading Scootergoods Mag. for the next event to be held at the Sand Trap. I was ready to ﬁnd my recliner once again, so we all loaded up and headed north. Fortunantly the rain was gone, and we had a great ride home. Til next time.........Ride Safe & Often, Charlie W.
(FF from 20) Again we took a more scenic route out by Rock Crusher to High Octane where they are always ready to welcome riders. The lovely Cassandra had sandwiches ready to keep us happy & round. Ha ha Then a short hop to Two Deuces where Liz took care of us while we “got ready” :-) for the last leg of the ride. Down to the Sand Trap in Weeki Wachee where Jeff and his girls had the cold beer & great food already laid A Big ATA BIKER TO THE WINNERS
out for us. We only got rained on for about 2 min of this leg of the run. You’ll remember Sue from last months cover, she always brightens everyones day. So maybe next ride we can get more “riders” out to share in the fun. Keep the top side up. Freewheelin Franklin

Roadqueen:So anyone who has been riding lately knows we are in the rainy season here in Florida and the chances of you getting caught in the rain are real good right now, so this month I want to focus on a few tips about riding in the rain. Needless to say proper rain gear would be essential. However I bought new rain gear a couple of weeks ago but failed to put it on the bike. Duh. So seriously you need to know that roads are most slippery during the ﬁrst 15 minutes of a rainstorm. Oil, brake ﬂuid, transmission ﬂuid etc. rise to the surface. The center of the lane generally has the greatest build up and the right side of the road has the run off so it’s best to try and follow in the track of the left rear tire of the vehicle in front of you. The colored rainbows you see on the roads when they’re wet…That’s oil.Another danger are those painted lines! They are extremely slippery when wet. This includes the turning arrows, crosswalks and the like. So remember don’t lean into the turn on painted lines, actually make a 90° turn using your handlebars. (Cont. Pg. 39)

(Road Queen form 35) SLOW DOWN! You’ve got nothing to prove. Make each movement gentle and gradual. Keep it smooth. This is where knowing your friction zone is important. It will help you keep every movement smooth. Don’t panic if you feel your rear tire slide a little. As long as your front tire is going in the direction you want the laws of physics will hold the bike up. In closing I recently learned a great trick for drying the inside of those waterlogged boots…Newspaper…stuff the inside of your wet boots with newspaper. To my amazement it really works! Till Next Month, Road Queen We at Scootergoods would love to hear from you!! Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org Leave me your phone number and email address...Please feel free to share a picture and your story. It’s a great way to encourage other women who are interested in riding. Tell us a bit about how you ﬁrst started riding or share your most memorable ride.

No Skool has been with Scootergoods Magazine for going on six years now, Damn near from the beginning seen a lot of shit change through the years. We have been there with Scootergoods from the beginning with the Old School biker rodeo, have got with Don & Janet Galbreath at Windy Acres in Fruitland Park and got the Scootergoods Anniversary party combined with their Halloween party. No Skool has also tried to get the scooterbabes project off the ground (which would do perfect with the travelin bike show). We have traveled as far as Okeechobee to cover “Riding with Angels” event. (That was an expensive trip there). No Skool has been involved in a lot of events from time to time. Covered all of them for the magazine. We have been to a lot of awsome events and have met some wonderful people out there doing a lot of things for the motorcycle community, people you wouldn’t even think of, it’s always the volunteers and the people behind the scene that make these things happen. So as long as we can hold out, we are gonna do our damndest to do it for as long as we can, so don’t forget we are watchin you. No Skool took a ride to the Sand Trap on Sunday to watch the homemade bikini contest. The party turned out good their ain’t nothing better than seeing girls half necked. Their was some good grub to eat too. “No Skool”

Another Horse Magazine SmokeOut is in the books... This was the 12th year for the SmokeOut and the third year to have this event at Rockingham, North Carolina Drag Park. For a two day event, this thing really packs in the bikers and tons of old school bikers at that. With over 100 acres of camping, the biker shenanigans go on all day and night. We don’t know the attendance, but Friday seemed to be the biggest day. Being set up as vendors representing Red’s Custom Cycle of Ohio and Scootergoods Magazine has it’s benﬁts. We were able to see everyone. (Too bad DonV couldn’t attend this year, but Chickenman was a GREAT representative.) This year they decided to do something new. Each vendor chose a lady to be body painted with their logo. The entertainment was awesome with headliners Rebel Son on Friday night and Jasmine Cain on Saturday night. The selection of old school bikes was unbelievable. Chicken’s new build (rat bike with sidecar) drew alot of attention and eventually we were interviewed by “Ride on America”, America’s motorcycle webshow. This interview will be shown on their website soon. Until next time......Chicken and Red
Laborday is coming next month, so be sure to check out All the Scootergoods Magazine advertisers for BBQâ€™s and Events.

For most of us the 4th of July long weekend was a good time. But tragedy struck in Ruskin on Friday July 1st when Thomas Colson & passenger Galilee Howard where killed by 52 yr old Susanne Meyers. Meyers turned her 1988 Buick right into the path of Tom Colson. Tom & Galilee were thrown onto the roadway and died at the scene. What of Susanne Myers the driver of the car do you ask? SHE LEFT THE SCENE,leaving them to DIE. Myers was eventually found after her husband called the cops. Colson,was retired from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Ofﬁce. According to records Susanne Meyers was arrested in January 2010 for DUI in Hillsborough County, HER B.A.C.WAS 0.15.There is no excuse for the hanoius and violent crime commited against 2 innocent bikers by Susanne Myers and it is the hope of the entire Scootergoods Staff that she is put on trial and covicted to the longest sentence the law will allow for the MURDER of Tom & Galilee. We will be watching this story and let you all know what happens. “DDay”

A nice indoor arena for all the adult and bike games Fri and Sat. too. They also had covered bleachers for the dirt drags,which was a great show watching them bikes doin’ it in the dirt. On Friday Geneva played and that girl can sing and ain’t bad on the eyes either. Also on Friday they had oil wrestling and a wet t-shirt contest.
On Saturday Jacksonville Fl. Band Big Engine rocked this place. It was their ﬁrst time around here and by the crowds response they will probably be back. There was about 15 of us that camped on the water in the shade, with Keith, Kara, and Danny camping beside us with a stripper pole,that was used from dusk til’ dawn both nights.
They said they hit about 6 big events every year, so we can’t wait to camp with them again. Here’s the deal This event is over 21 only-no exceptions. A Weekend pass $30 per person, Saturday only $20, support vehicle fees $30 each, RV Parking $60 (No Hookups, generators welcome). Primitive (tent) camping is free.

There was a pretty good turnout for the 1st Free & Easy ride. There were 6 stops plus 1 unscheduled stop , and all
went well. The threat of rain, as always this time of year, but no drops hit today! Starting at Mickey’s, which is always a good place to start, I arrived to a parking lot already starting to ﬁll. The Oar House had 2 girls to help us quench our thirst after the long ride from Mickey’s. :-) Mark at Mouse Trap had the Jumbalya ready for us and the beer was cold, perfect. Bogart’s was new to me but Trash Talking Tina was there to make me feel at home. Good job Bogart! Rainbow Pub was also new to me. An unscheduled stop was called for, ya know cause it was so far to the Sunray, but we did make it. The Sunray might be a ride but it’s really worth it. Cold beer, great food, live music! What more could you ask for? Great ride Tee & Curtis! Keep the top side up! Freewheelin Franklin

This month’s Tech-Tip is about maintaining the proper oil level in your Big Twin Harley. First off and most important, Harley engines are what is known as “Dry Sump Engines”.This means almost all of the oil is returned to the tank. As little as 1.5 pints are in the lower crankcase while running. You should always start your bike and warm it up before checking the oil. Now for the tech-tip, in my opinion the hot level on the models with the plastic dipstick(mostly touring models) has the hot level marked too high meaning they are over-full. In a hot climate like Florida, engines run hotter which increases oil expansion. When the oil level is over-full it causes the oil to mist out through the throttle body or carb throat and into the air cleaner, then gets blown down the side of the bike. So what I generally do is make a mark on the dipstick 3/16” below the Harley “full when hot” mark. Check the oil on the side stand only if the dipstick indicates to. And always check the oil level with the bike straight up. Now for the softball models, with the engine warm and the bike sitting straight up, the oil should be below the round tube that’s welded to the oil tank where the dipstick stopper goes in. If you have any questions on the matter feel free to give me a call. Happy motoring!

I bought my 1965 Harley-Davidson Panhead in 1976 in Ohio, my home state. On the way home, the bike being mine for less than ﬁve minutes, I was nearly run over by three cars and run off a bridge by another. My buddy Scott, who was following me home in his car, could only watch in horror as all this took place. Scott told me later that he just stopped the car, closed his eyes, and ﬁgured I was dead. Then he heard the distant rumble of the motor. Scott opened his eyes and there I was, riding away. At the same moment, I was giving the bike’s fuel tank a little tap while saying, with a knowing smile, “We’re buddies for life.” I’ve had the bike painted twice. Other than that, I’ve pretty much just ridden it since 1976. In 2009 I bought a 2004 VROD and the Panhead was taken off the road and disassembled…I ﬁgured it was time to take care of it in the same respectful way it had taken care of me all these years and treated it to new paint (including the frame), new wiring, and a few new chrome goodies. I had the solo seat reupholstered with the leather from the ﬁrst black leather jacket I ever bought…the jacket still rides with the bike. A buddy at work, Lenny, painted the tanks and fenders a shiny black and our good friend Carmine (Big Ragoo) made the seat bracket. The ﬁrst picture of me and the Panhead was taken in the summer of 1978 after the bike received its ﬁrst paint job. And as much as my wife believes in activity of the paranormal, the hazy image you may see hanging around the back of the bike is simply her reﬂection (this is a picture of the original picture)! When I started to put the bike back together about 6 months ago I decided not to cut my normally shorter hair until the bike was totally road worthy, so I could pose for the camera and have a “1965 Panhead, Then and Now” kinda thing to hang on the wall. The second picture was taken one Saturday in June 2011 after I ironed out the last ofthe wrinkles and ﬁnally got the bike up and running. Later on that dayI was off to get a haircut! I ride the VROD back and forth to work when I don’t take my pickup, but on the weekends you’ll usually see me on the Panhead, and will probably be entering some of the up-and-coming bike shows. See you on the road!, “Paul”

Well the rain & many other excuses have kept Da Deuce & myself in the garage too much this past month. We did make it over to the “NEW” Stormie’s Too (formerly “Dee’s” in Hudson) for their Monday special “Liver & Onions”. If you like Liver & Onions - this is a keeper (2) large perfectly cooked & tender piece’s (plus the sides) - outstanding! Sunday July 10th headed up to the Sandtrap for their monthly party - this months theme - Homemade Bikini Contest - W/ Lawless Intent providing the tunes. The heat & humidity was brutal but the brew’s were good & cold. Hooked up with Charlie W, Franklin, Scrappy and Transmission Tom as we enjoyed the entertainment of the Homemade Bikini’s - made from shop rags to bows n ribbons to eatable candy (heat & humidity did a number on that one). Dam good crowd for the weather the way it was. Saturday July 9th at the Sail Inn was the Big Ragoo’s B-Day bash. Mother nature wanted to assure the humidity was plenty high again so she pissed on us early, then brought out the sun. Good reminder of Florida’s summer. Kay & Elrod - as usual were well prepared with plenty of help so you didn’t have to wait long for a ice cold adult beverage. Bar-Ba-Lew, again was outstanding with the food (chicken & pork). Joy was on the mic & organizing some games. Lost & Found provided the tunes - these 4 guys can rock! I would go to see them again - I was not disappointed. Very good variety & no problem hearing them. It was good to see several people that I had not seen in a while, which helped make the day even better. The birthday boy was on a roll! I think he posed for pictures with every women there - could not wipe the smile off his face. Happy Birthday dude! I know I’ve been bitchen a lot about President Dick Wad but WTF! Raise the national debt ceiling again? Like - keep raising your credit card limit with no means of paying it back. You talk about the deer in the head light look - the more he talks the more he contradicts himself & is totally clueless! Cure your debt by creating more debt - makes sense to me?? Of course all the while still sending foreign aid to countries who hates the red, white & blue. He announced millions of American’s that would be cut or not paid but no mention of the senate, congress or lobbyists be cut or not being paid. What’s up with that? Socialism at it’s ﬁnest.

Sunday, July 17th - Aprox 40 bikes signed up for the Mudd Buggz Poker Run where they had set out breakfast treats for prior to kickstands up. I hooked up with Carmine & some of the Pasco safety crew and it was off to the 2nd stop at BB Ma Gee’s . The 3rd stop was off to the Sail Inn. After an adult beverage & one of Bar-BaLew’s Mojo Taco’s it was off to the 4th stop at Roo’s Pub in Brooksville, where “Wrong Way” (show’s how he got the nickname) guided the group right past it. We were already off the bikes when the Pied Piper lead the group back around. The 5th stop took us up to the Sandtrap (North Weekie Wachee) where the cloud cover was beginning to pick up. The 6th stop was Tailgators as the sky was really starting to darken up. The 7th stop was back to Mudd Buggz which was an adventure as the sky unloaded on us. You could tell who was on the run by the wet puppies! At (New) Mudd Buggz you could see big changes in the place as: new metal ceiling (really brightens up the place, new patio & bar outback along with the Trolley Car. There was plenty of food & adult beverages. Outside the slow race & weenie bite contest’s kept the crowd’s attention along with “Lawless Intent” kicking out the Jams. Brother John

PIRATES PUB RISES FROM THE ASHES
A while back Pirates pub in Paisley had a ďŹ re causing it to close. Well we are happy to report The Renners, have rebulit and will be holding a grand opening party. The RISE FROM THE ASHES Grand Opening of the ship, will be taking place on August 13th. The Gang Plank will be down and Cold Beer will be the Booty of the Day. The party will also feature Live Music and plenty of laughs. Pirates has long been a biker destination and is located in the small town of Paisley, (Population around 734) The main road through town is Cty. Rd. 42. It is a great ride on the way to Bikeweek or Biketoberfest because it whinds up intersecting with Hwy 44 just west of Deland and is well worth the trip.We here at Scootergoods wish the Renners good luck and commend them for re-opening a Biker Landmark. We hope all of you will take the time to drop your kiskstands at Pirates Pub. We most assurdly will!
