This week we have a guest to talk about riding vintage motorcycle exclusively and over long distances. Joining Rico in studio this week, we have a great conversation to share with everyone.
- Rides a 1939 80ci Harley Flathead and a 1980 Sturgis Harley (only 1400 of these ever created)
- Learned on a Yamaha Virago
- Flathead upgraded from 45 to 80 cubic inch by her husband Wymand.
- The bike had low center of gravity and was a great bike being short of 5'4".
- Main reason Devah rides is the freedom and seeing new sights, and the feeling of different winds
- Been riding for 35 years and has gone from Toronto to New Orleans as well as Toronto to Sturgis
- Once ran out of gas in Oregon and once off the highway, a gas truck pulled in behind and filled them up!
- Tips for riding vintage bikes is to be mechanically inclined, have a good back, and be prepared to be looked at.
- Tip for women is to carry a scarf that can be used for to keep you warm and cool.
- Best state to ride in the USA is Utah in Devah's opinion.
- Salt river canyon in particular is a great place.
- Having ridden on the back for many years, she enjoys the different feeling of being a passenger, which allows for looking around more at the scenery and Nagigation (new term for us)
