Quick Survey!

This little survey came out of a couple different conversation about what colors riders like and don't like. No, I don't mean "Colors" ... I'm talkin' 'bout colors!.....

What colors will you wear and which ones will you definiately not wear? What colors would you paint your bike and which ones are way off base??? Some folks would never ride a red bike while others absolutely love them. Some riders lean toward black and orange always and some others look for different combinations.

I realize this will vary with men and women so if you reply to the survey, please let me know which one you are and I'll report back about the findings - just for fun!

BLACK ...... WHITE ...... LIGHT BLUE ...... DARK BLUE ...... RED ......

LIGHT GREEN ...... DARK GREEN ...... ORANGE ...... YELLOW ......

PURPLE ...... PINK ...... GREY ...... BROWN ...... TAN

What colors of these would you wear? Which ones would you not wear?





What colors would you paint your bike? What colors would you not want on your ride?

Let me know your thoughts!

Still looking for Riding Groups!

Hey ya'll! ... I'm still waiting on info from a number of riding groups who expressed interest in being in our Club Room group listings .. and hoping to hear from many many more rider organizations who have yet to connect with me.

No, The Club Room is not online yet for a number of reasons....part of them technical as we are working on new site updates and want to ensure that The Club Room is part of those rather than handled under old designs ... and also because we are waiting on you!

Why List Your Group in The Club Room? is an online magazine reaching out to all NC/SC riders. The website currently gets 1.3million hits per month & the free mini-mag, "The Carolina Rider Scene" goes out to over 20,000 subscribers weekly.  These numbers continue to grow & the magazine's reach broadens. is a publication of Satisfaction Marketing whose aim is to help individual & small business dreams become reality through professional guidance, creative genius, & enthusiastic support.

The Club Room provides a valuable online page for your motorcycle-related community groups to:

  1. To help interested riders support your group and its activities and mission
  2. Share periodic reports, articles, stories, photos, & announcements for The Carolina Rider community to enjoy & connect
  3. To have a widely-viewed online presence within a respected and growth-focused publication


I know time gets away from us and it's hard to get around to all that's possible in a day's time. Our "Group Submission Form" is pretty simple and should help you easily share the info you need to get out. We'll do most of the work to create your online presence and we believe you'll be most proud of what we offer you and the community.

Please take time today to either

Thanks much!

By the way, you won't hurt my feelings if you don't like purple ... even if I ride a purple Yamaha V-Star! I love the color of my bike and really like the fringed bags and handlebars. Yes, very girly. Just as it should be.....

Funny ... I can't find many photos of my bike. TONS of pics of everyone else's bikes in our files.... just a couple of me and my girly ride. And so I'll recycle this photo once again.....

This month's custom: Sweet Joe

A Bike Nite Stand-out!

by Stealth

I was at Mckoy's bike night a few weeks ago and searching the parking lot for potential bikes of the month. Nothing seemed to jump out at me. I was getting ready to leave and out of the corner of my eye was this candy tangerine Softail pulling in. I had to take a closer look. I had found this month's custom!"

I introduced myself to Sweet  Joe's owner, Perry Montuori, and he filled me in on Sweet Joe. One of the things that really caught my eye is the paint - the candy tangerine is flawless and you have to see it in person to really appreciate it. Perry told me he laid down the paint job and is starting a small business painting bikes, Kemikal Bros. So if you need a paint job, hit these guys up.

I really like the rear fender struts on this bike. Perry knocked these out. The handlebar risers are the old chopper style risers which blend well with the drag bars. This set-up gives the bike some attitude. Also check out the rear fender - nice and long. Perry modified this fender and it fits like a glove!

Another thing Perry impressed me with is how clean he keeps Sweet Joe. I like when a guy or gal keeps their bike clean. It shows the pride they have in their bikes and let me tell you Sweet Joe is clean top to bottom! Now I know some of you are saying, "Well if you ride it, it is going to get dirty" and you are right but it doesn't have to stay that way! Sweet Joe is the perfect example of a bike that you don't have to spend tons of money on to make stand out. It is refreshing today to see a bike like this in a world of $75k bikes. Sweet Joe makes a statement: With a little money, a little imagination, and a little work, you can have a head-turning bike like this!

At the end of the day Sweet Joe is a sweet, kick-ass bike!





There are some things in life you just have to do .. grin and bear it, they say. Stuff you gotta get through and do whether you want to or not. My Carolina Beauty photo shoots ARE NOT those kinds of things!!!

I am as thankful as I can be to be able to capture women's beauty with my camera and then share them with you. It's fun taking pictures of most things but when it comes to the feminine form, well, now, that's what makes everything else worth it...

I tell folks all the time..."Bikes and girls...that's what guys want to see.... and mostly it's girls." And so we MUST have some great photos of the gals...and sometimes they're on or around bikes, which makes it a win-win, huh?

This past weekend I had the chance to photograph Amber, one of our spokesmodels who you may have seen with us at Quaker Steak and Lube or at the Hog Happenin'. She's a rider who took a motorcycle skills class with me and a lovely lady who I know you'll enjoy meeting. Check out our Carolina Beauties GALLERY.
