Tomorrow starts my favorite month to ride!  The weather gets a little cooler and more importantly the leaves start changing colors.  Of course with how crazy the weather has been this year who knows when that's happening.

Anyway, if you're looking to attach a good cause to all riding this month please jump in and join our partners Ride to Remember at Stock's Harley Davidson.  It's a Poker Run style ride with 10 stops and the best three hands win gift certificates to Stock's, but most importanly your $40 benefits the Wisconsin Paralyzed Veterans of America.  You can get the rest of the details here or stop in at Stock's starting September 1st. 

Lastly, if you're looking to see what new bikes are available Stock's has the 2013 Softail Slim, Street Glide, Ultra Classic, and Limited's.  You can see the pictures here on their site.

Safe riding and enjoy the long weekend!

The new Harley's are in and this year the fuss is all about...the paint.  If you haven't seen the Hard Candy Custom yet check out the official Harley video.  The colors are great and bold, a real transition from all the blacked out looks we've seen from Harley the last couple years.



A little bit of a bummer this year is the lack of new releases.  As a big Softail fan I was really hoping to see a Springer come back this year but no luck this time, I'll keep my fingers crossed on a mid year release.

The best addition this year though is that the Street Bob has been added to the factory custom line like the Sportsters.  If you've never done it check it out here.

I know our partner in Manitowoc, Stocks Harley Davidson, has some 2013's in.  As soon as I get a full list I'll post again, until then just go check them out and let the real experts tell you what you need to know.  Looking at all the new bikes is like Christmas in August.

Until next time, ride safe!

Hey all, we've got some more pictures to share on this weeks blog.  These came from Stock's Harley Davidson in Manitowoc where a customer showed off a 1917 Indian Motorcycle.  Check out these pictures...


It's kind of a rare time period to see standard Indian motorcycles from as much of their product in 1917 was going to assist America's efforts in World War 1.  Also, in looking up the history of Indian I found it interesting that for a period starting in 1923 they dropped the "r" and became Indian Motocycle.  All kinds of info like that can be found on this official Indian timeline.

Also, a quick check with Wausau says there's still some room available for the state H.O.G. rally that started today.  If you're going please take some pictures for the site and send them in here.  Enjoy your weekend and ride safe everyone!

Here is another listener photo, this time from Scott S. on his trip out to Colorado.  It's a shot of him and his Fat Boy at Ute Pass in Colorado. 



Gorgeous shot, thanks Scott!

Also, as any good rider would know it's Sturgis week!  If you're heading that way please snap some shots for us we'll put them right in the blog.  We've also got Len Nelson heading to Sturgis so we'll keeping track of his photos in the gallery section of WAPL.com.  If you're going that way or just like to know what everyone is doing in Sturgis here is a list of events.

If Sturgis is out of reach I hope you're at least making plans for Wausau the week after to be at the 2012 Wisconsin H.O.G. Rally.  For all the details and tips on planning your ride visit the site here.

No matter where you're going we love the listener pictures, so please keep sending them here.  Enjoy the weather and ride safe!

It's time for the 13th Annual Pickerfest Ride, this August 4th.  If you aren't aware of what the Pickerfest ride is then I'm happy to fill you in because it's that good of a cause.  This benefit ride costs $15/person and the money goes to the St. Vincent Hospital 10th floor and Parents of Children with Cancer.  The 10th floor at St. Vincent's is The Child Life floor where they work with families and sick children to handle the stress of needing treatment.  If you'd like to see how it works check out the video below. 



The details of the ride are as follows...
Registration is at Stock's Harley Davidson starting at 11am.  It's a 100 mile ride and it's going to end at the Iron Buffalo Saloon and Bare Bones will be performing live.  If you're free this Saturday please join the ride and the party to help a great cause.
