You’d think that you have heard it all. Biker gangs are normal, and have been in existence since mankind started riding motorcycles. We’ve also seen more and more preachers taking to their Harleys. But nuns?

Yes, there is an order within the Church that has nuns on bikes. They don’t ride them though. The motorcycles belong to the Muskegon Motorcycle Gang, and when they visit Milwaukee, the place they stay is with the honorary members of their motorcycle club; the Sisters of Charity of St. Joan Antida.

The sisters have provided shelter to the motorcycle club, and in return, the club have taken them for rides and made them members.

The “affair” started during Harley-Davidson’s 100th birthday bash. The MMG couldn’t find a place to stay, and turned to the nuns, who willingly hosted them. Since then, the club has kept in contact with the Sisters, and for the 105th birthday bash, they stayed with the Order again.

A love affair on on first sight? Ride Nice, Pray Hard....

Among the top models found in the 2009 Victory lineup are the Kingpin and Kingpin Tour, the only classic cruisers built by the new American bike manufacturer. Their clear purpose is to counteract Harley-Davidson and its infinite success, not by copying it, but by introducing a whole new concept of freeway motorcycles.

Who said that being a model photographer is easy and enjoyable? How about these “professionals” from Miami, Florida who try to get the best out of this lame excuse for a model. And wait to hear what she has to say at the end of the 4 minutes video (probably 10 minutes photo session). Stay away from the bike… you’re making it look ugly and fat!

A more appropriate title for this video would be “Everything about Boss Hoss Motorcycles and Trikes straight from the source”, but that’s a little too long so we’ll simply say here that Rad Hunsley explains the benefits and features of the Boss Hoss product.

Here are the answers to the most frequent questions about this bike.

This Saturday, 70 officers from more than 18 law enforcement agencies are scheduled to participate at the Western States Motorcycle Officers Association’s training and skills competition from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The event will take place at the Elk Grove Regional Park, 9950 Elk Grove Florin Road and it is suppose to show us how trained and full of ability the arm of the law is, something that is fair and full of consistency. But I’m beginning to think that they’d better do their job and absolve us from invitations at their showcases.

Frankly, I would have a much better opinion about policeman on motorcycles if they’d actually apply their skills every day on field and not compete ones against the others with every chance they get.

Oh, you can also participate if you have a license and your own bike. If you still pay them for this, at least have fun with them…maybe they’ll get you in the force.

Harley-Davidson riders can now benefit of a new portable GPS made by Garmin. The new release is called the Road Tech zumo and its main targets are the Harley-Davidson dealerships, as part of the American maker’s motorcycle accessories lineup.

Being a limited edition product, it sounds very promising and it actually is. Because it will fit Harley-Davidson motorcycles - it comes with handlebar mount and support on Harley-Davidson.com - it will feature all the dealership locations preloaded on it.

What is interesting and makes the zumo more useful is the fact that it has an SD card slot, allowing other zumo users to share trip information, just like truck drivers.

But it can also be fun. Because it has XM satellite radio hardware, it can be accessed for getting weather information and listen to music. You can also get TMC traffic alerts in cities that support it, and if now you can still use the sports programming function to relax.

Making a phone call from your bike is now even easier as the Road Tech zumo makes calls via Bluetooth equipped headsets. As it is wireless, you can also listen to the voice guidance using this method.

Designed to suit a rider’s needs and not become bothering in any way, the ingenious guys at Garmin made sure that their new product can be operated with a rider’s big-gloved fingers and never be affected by rain.

With a price tag of nearly $800, this will surely become a major point of interest for Harley-Davidson riders as it brings them even closer together.

What do you get when you cross a Ducati and a cruiser? It’s not something that’s going to happen real soon, especially since Harley has just bought MV Agusta and not Ducati as was rumored. Ducati is not in the cruiser market, but still there’s one such an animal in existence. The Ducati cruiser, called the Ferrari Ducati 996 Custom Cruiser Pro Street was a custom job for the Ferrari dealership owner, Ray Anthony (http://www.thenewautotoystore.com/). It won several prizes in custom shows. (...)

Harley has announced today the purchase of MV Agusta and implicit Cagiva for a price of $109 million. The acquisition was long suspected as Harley had done the same thing with Buell so let’s hope that the investments will have the same effects as they did in the case of the American maker that was taken under the wing of the oldest motorcycle builder in the world. Harley has had problems of its own and it nearly lead it to bankruptcy and it seems that it is now in the business as never before.

Here’s the Press Release for you
