The Bikers’ Den Blog


From LiveWire To ReWire

  For years now, we’ve watched as Harley-Davidson has wrestled with the average age of its riders.  The most recent statistics say the same things they’ve said all along:  The average age of Harley’s customers is getting older – over 50 now, to be exact.  And that’s a problem.  A…

Sturgis in the Age Of Corona

It’s interesting that news coverage – which so many times focuses on blood, gore, and shock tactics – has given so little coverage to the fact that over 460,000 bikers descended on Sturgis for the 80th Annual Rally. In all that, only a handful of COVID-19 cases have been confirmed….

More Than Just A Beanie Skid Lid

Now, this is not a waxxer post.  And it’s not really for bar hoppers, either. Not in the least.  We like all bikes, but the ones that can chew up hundreds of miles in a weekend are, in our eyes, the real winners. Sure, there are some beautiful bar hoppers…

Jump Starting The Whole Thing

The simple truth is this:  all over the world, folks are hurting.  Some countries aren’t telling anyone how bad it sucks (like China, for example) and others, it seems like there’s a morbid curiosity to see how many victims they can claim. No matter what, as we all collectively try…

A Dose of Realism

In the last eight weeks, we’ve gotten a shot of realism, that’s for sure.  We’ve seen how folks can’t figure out what to do, so they panic (and that goes for our politicians, too) and do nothing – or do stupid crap that puts lives in danger. I don’t know…
