Finding the Right Fit: Take Care of Your Vertebrae

Posted by Harley-Davidson Insurance on Jul 5, 2020 11:44:00 AM

We love to ride. We live to ride. We know how it feels when the challenges of the world melt away under the rumbling peace of long rides down two-lane blacktops. At times, it feels like we can ride through a dozen sunsets and sunrises without stopping.

For some of us, however, our spirit of adventure is far more indomitable than our bodies will allow. We lie in bed at night dreaming of our next great ride, and in our fantasy we are supple and lithe, because in our mind we always default to the very best version of ourselves. And then morning comes. With a Herculean effort, we hoist ourselves out of bed and lament the passing of the guy who made last night’s fantasies look easy.

Many of us have never had back problems, and we want to keep it that way. We have to take care of our bodies so they can continue to serve us for years to come. Riding for long periods of time, unfortunately, can take its toll on our lower back. Many of us know what that feels like, and many of us know how lower back pain and stiffness can dampen the exhilaration of a great ride.

Harley-Davidson LiveWire Riding Basics

Posted by Oakland H-D Contributor on Jun 3, 2020 10:00:00 AM

How hard is it to ride an electric motorcycle? It's a lot like most other motorcycles in a lot of ways. You choose how fast you go by using a throttle. You choose when to brake by using a brake lever. You balance on two wheels and put your feet down at stops. You feel the wind and you smell the smells. It feels like a motorcycle.

Beyond that things start to change.
