Kickstart Classic Harley Motorcycle Magazine Ride

We at American Iron Harley Magazine are teaming up with RoadBike motorcycle cruising magazine and the folks at Wheels Through Time, Panhead City and Barber Motorsports to put on the 1st Kickstart Classic motorcycle ride in October and you are invited.

AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Breakfast – Erik Buell

Every year the AMA holds this breakfast in Daytona during Bike Week and I am surprised at how few people are even aware of this fund raising event open to the public. This year it was held on Friday at the swanky 500 Club facility in the infield of the Daytona International Speedway track. The guest speaker was Erik Buell who gave a wonderful recounting of his history with motorcycles, racing and Harley-Davidson. He also unveiled his stunning and technologically leading new street motorcycle. It is limited to a 100 bike production worldwide.

Harley Baggers In Daytona Beach

Every year I have seen a greater number of Harley baggers come to Daytona Beach for Bike Week and this year there are more than ever. I am seeing fewer choppers with fat rear tires and long forks. They are just fading off the scene as the Harley baggers continue to grow in popularity here.

Daytona Bike Week: What Motorcycle Gear To Pack?

I got pretty much every year to the Daytona Beach Bike Week to cover the activities for American Iron Magazine and the Harley enthusiasts who can’t attend. Yet when it comes time to pack my stuff it is odd to be in freezing New England trying to figure out what to bring to sunny and warm Florida.

Harley Garage Time & Daytona Harley Baggers Party

Motorcycle Bagger Harley magazine Launch Party and Bike Show
March is right around the corner, and that means the annual Daytona Beach Bike Week party is almost here. This event is fun every year, but we want this one to be something special. In conjunction with celebrating our 22nd birthday here at American Iron Magazine, we’re expanding our most popular special issue magazine ever — American Iron Motorcycle Bagger — to a bimonthly publication in March.

Buzz’s Freezing Classic Motorcycle Ride Video

After not riding or even starting a motorcycle in over a month I finally got my driveway free of ice and snow and pushed my 1931 Indian 101 Scout motorcycle out of the garage into the 18 degree temperature Sunday morning. My pal Charlie was due at my house on one of his motorcycles for us to do a freezing Sunday morning breakfast ride.

Border Bankruptcy – Fewer Harley Magazine Sales

A lot of Harley magazine sales come from book stores, especially for the smaller circulation motorcycle magazines. After weeks of rumors about the financial condition of Borders Bookstores, we heard today that Borders (and Waldenbooks, which it owns) has filed for bankruptcy.

New Harley Baggers Magazine

Our new Motorcycle Bagger will feature the same high quality editorial, art and printing as American Iron Magazine with reivews, tech and installs plus tours and great places to ride your Harley baggers to.

Harley Riders Improve American Iron Magazine

After more than twenty years of publication, we think American Iron Magazine is good magazine for Harley riders. More people buy American Iron Magazine than any other Harley magazine in the world. But we also know there are always ways to make it even better. So every year we ask our readers to tell us what you think about what we print every month.

Another Sunday Morning Motorcycle Ride?

This past Sunday morning, my riding partner and neighbor, Dean, rode over on his trusty 1959 Panhead. He wanted to show me his recently purchased, correct, and original bubble bags. The sun had just come up and the temperature was climbing out of the high 30s. I was bundled up for the cold when I fired up my trusty old 1931 Indian 101 Scout. While it had been more than a month since I had last rode this old Indian, it is a bike I have ridden a lot over the years and is one of my favorites.
