  • Radio Talk Published 11/11/2009 at 9:36 a.m. 0 comments

    Yuri Zuev: It is obvious that one radio station cannot satisfy all the listeners with various demands and tastes. But one can do better that WUOT. [“No Static At All?” by Chris Barrett, Oct. 22, 2009] I have nothing against ...

  • Helping to Find a Cure Published 7/17/2009 at 1:29 p.m.

    Recently Handlebars ran a full-page ad for our charity fund-raiser, Ridin’ To Cure Diabetes. I wanted to thank you for your support in helping make the ride a HUGE success. We had 102 bikes participate, over 200 riders, and raised ...

  • Steve’s Right Published 7/17/2009 at 1:28 p.m.

    I have to say that I do understand Steve Dupree’s column [“Liars!” Rubber Side Down, April 2009] and am outraged at Eric Ohlgren’s comment [“Accidents Happen to All Vehicles,” Backfires, June 2009]. What I got out of Steve’s commentary is ...

  • Why Not? Published 7/17/2009 at 1:27 p.m.

    I left Chicago Saturday for a one-day instructor class (Sunday) down in Champaign, Ill. by Lee Parks. I told my kids I’d be back Monday. I packed for two nights. Monday I got on my bike, thought to myself, “Hey, ...

  • Taking the Scenic Routes Published 7/17/2009 at 1:25 p.m.

    First of all, I would like to thank Fred Sahms and Russ Townsend for their “Backroads and Byways” articles in the Handlebars newspaper. I always look forward to seeing what trip they have in store for me. I am tearing ...

  • Accidents Happen to All Vehicles Published 5/27/2009 at 11:22 a.m.

    I’ve never understood the “Kill a biker, go to jail” thing and I defiantly didn’t get Steve Dupree’s column, “Liars!” [Rubber Side Down, April 2009]. What are people like Dupree trying to say? That because I’m large enough to be ...

  • Staying Balanced Published 5/27/2009 at 10:25 a.m.

    Kudos on the new Handlebars format! The articles are informative, interesting, and very balanced. Thanks also for the ride routes. I’ve taken an old friend who may be in his last summer of riding on a couple of them. He’s ...

  • Short But Sweet! Published 4/24/2009 at 4:20 p.m.

    Thanks for the new approach in Handlebars; keep up the good work. --Ed French, Triumph rider

  • No Apologies Published 4/24/2009 at 4:09 p.m.

    A bit of background might be in order. I have been riding off and on since 1991, on bikes as diverse as a Honda Rebel, Harley Ironhead Sportster, and a Honda CBX and in between, too. I ride all year ...

  • An Old Rider “Rambles” Published 4/24/2009 at 4:00 p.m.

    I enjoy the new format of Handlebars. There is more to motorcycling than going to biker bars every night of the week. Been around motorcycles and riding since 1962. Have rode or owned about all makes and sizes of bikes. ...

  • People, Not Labels Published 4/24/2009 at 3:43 p.m.

    After reading the second edition of Handlebars, I had to respond. I liked the first edition of Handlebars and I am enjoying the second edition very much. I think Handlebars is doing a great job and appreciate all of your ...

  • What's All the Fuss About? Published 3/23/2009 at 4:41 p.m.

    Until I picked up the March issue of Handlebars I didn’t know there was a controversy over the mag. If I understand correctly, there are people out there who actually believe that the world revolves around Harley-Davidson. I’ll admit that ...

  • "Is the 555 club accepting new members?" Published 3/23/2009 at 4:38 p.m.

    Just wanted to drop you a line and say that the new format for Handlebars is great. With any new venture there is bound to be positive and negative reaction. I have been riding motorcycles for 30 years, Harley’s for ...

  • "Remember All of Us Motorcyle Riders" Published 3/23/2009 at 4:20 p.m.

    In your March 2009 issue there was a letter stating that the writer would like the main focus of Handlebars to be on the V-twin market. I have to disagree, because I am sure that you realize there are more ...

  • WOW! Published 3/23/2009 at 4:19 p.m.

    I just picked up my copy of Handlebars from Colboch Harley-Davidson here in Morristown, sat down, and read all the comments that readers have voiced in—complaints and kudos about the mag. Okay, I have to say I do miss the ...
