One of our favorite things to do in the summer is ride motorcycles all around this great state. When I met my adorable husband seven years ago, he had a Honda VTX 1300R. Though I loved motorcycles I was a little afraid and I didn’t want to orphan my children. But I couldn’t take one of my husband’s favorite toys away from him. Plus, I didn’t want to see what he would choose if I gave him an ultimatum!
A couple of years ago my husband traded in his VTX for a Harley Davidson Street Glide after we ran into an old friend of mine at a concert one night. He said he picks up Harley’s at auctions and rebuilds them. He rebuilt a beautiful 2007 Street Glide and painted it denim black. It was gorgeous and my husband was in heaven. Dave rode it for the past couple of years, but made the mistake of walking into a local dealership and falling in love with a bright Chrome Yellow Pearl Street Glide. We were in there just to purchase accessories but of course it was shiny and said “buy me.” After working with the wonderful sales associates at Wolverine Harley Davidson in Clinton Township, MI and trading in the ’07 we rode off a newer street glide a few weeks ago.
Since we love to ride and our friends have bikes I started a Facebook group called Rokkin Riders. Everyone can post when they’re riding, local benefit rides, or local bike nights.
I know the perception of bikers is long hair and tattoos, but Dave doesn’t have either. We’ve met a lot of nice people over the years. Last year we joined Wolverine HOG (Harley Owners Group) chapter and look forward to hitting some of the events they have planned. Wolverine Harley has monthly events, with great food and lots of goodies for sale. While Dave goes to the dealership to buy parts for the bike, I veer towards the clothing section. I have a whole closet of Harley apparel and who the heck doesn’t love orange, black and gray? I love the designs of Harley. There’s always something for someone.
I highly recommend Wolverine Harley Davidson. If you’re in the market for a new or pre-owned bike, we highly recommend our sales guy, Eric Jansen. Give him a call at 586-463-7700 tell him Dave Klonke sent you!
