Sexy Beauties

On occasion we hear from folks who object to our use of sexy gals in our Carolina Beauties Gallery and in the opening photo of The Carolina Rider Scene. More often we get feedback such as this email Jon received last week from Bruce D....

Dear Jon, Hey, love your online magazine, The Carolina Rider Scene ... love it, love it, love it. I read every issue. Plus, I try to support those businesses that support The Carolina Rider. BUT, what gives with the catch line/link you place at the top of each issue "click for more pics?"

Issue 09/25/12: A stunning red head, wearing as little black as she can get away with, leaned against a powerful red & white glide ... but where are the other pics?

Issue 10/02/12: A set of luscious gams in black heels draped over the handle bars of a white and black wide glide ... but where are the other pics??

Issue 10/16/12: And now I'm still looking for more pics of this gorgeous cherry blonde babe with the black flamed-out custom street glide. Please ... where are they???

Good questions and thanks for writing! And I've got an answer for you, Bruce. Please give me a moment to share my thoughts a bit here and I'll then share the big news with you and all of our readers....

Well, since it's usually us womenfolk who get uncomfortable with skin shots of other women, I thought I'd address this from my own chick-gender perspective. Take today's top picture. I think it's absolutely gorgeous! Sure, I'm a little biased since the photographer is my man whose artistry I truly admire. Nevertheless, that brings up an even more pointed question I get: how can I be comfortable with my man looking at and doing extensive photoshoots with scantily-clad, intensely-sensual, beautifully-sexy models? My answer to all of this is simple and completely genuine: If something is beautiful, it's beautiful ... and the female body is without a doubt a gloriously beautiful subject! Clothed, draped, or completely naked, women are amazing features of artistic expression and easy everyday eye candy. Just as it should be.

Now, we have drawn a line here at The Carolina Rider. We don't publish topless or nude. Sure, some photos get pretty close and leave little to the imagination .. but aren't sexy women a HUGE part of the motorcycle scene? And while we girls are taking up a much larger percentage of the riding public than used to be, the majority of riders are men and like it or not, ladies, fellows like to look at hot babes as well as hot bikes and when you put 'em together, it's a win-win combination!

And so, you see, I am all for what we show here. I believe we approach what we offer very artistically as well as with an eye for our audience and a sense of good-ol' rider passion and fun. Plus, I am a big fan of FootlooseFotos!

Speaking of Footloose Fotos ... Bruce, are you paying attention? ...

Footloose Fotos is Jon Pendleton as well as all the other things he's got his hands in. This year he's been at work producing a juicy hot bikes-hot babes calendar for you in concert with The Litigator. This spectacular calendar, which will be available in a just few weeks, will be a gift to you from The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor! So, Bruce, no, there aren't more of the pics you commented on - well, not yet. And I apolgize that we misled you with the link and I'll make sure we're more clear in the future. That link simply led you to our Gallery. But soon enough you can have your hands on a delectable 12 months ... and since there are many photos that didn't make the cut, I hear that you might just be able to click for more pics and get to those too ... just as soon as the 2013 Calendar hits the public. OK?

Happy viewing - or, if you prefer, non-viewing. It's a personal choice and I'm ALL for that!



Dave S. emailed me the following in response to my sharing of Eva Cassidy's rendition of Autumn Leaves in last week's Free Thinking: "Thanks so much for introducing me to Eva Cassidy.What a crystal clear voice. Her phrasing is fantastic. Every song I heard her cover tonight is for me, better than the original. It's a shame she's not here to enjoy the fans that have discovered her after she is gone. Thanks. I always enjoy your column."

I just have to say, yep! she's one of my favorite voices and if you haven't heard her crazy beautiful version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, you just haven't lived! So, here ya go... give it a listen then find a recording of it to play as you ride through the magnificent weather and colorful trees we have to enjoy this week! (Here's a leaf report for North Carolina ... and here's another for SC.)

Terrie C sent in this info-filled article ...

... that encourages participation in the upcoming benefit as well as in any opportunity you might have to take an Accident Scene Management class ....

Almost a year ago, on October 16, 2011 Dave Wheaton, Assistant Lead Road Captain for Charlotte HOG chapter 3456, lead a group of HOG members to the Victory Junction Ride and then on out to the camp. On the return, Dave and Anjanette were coming down NC 80, then known as the Devils Staircase (now called the Devils Whip). Dave and his wife Anjanette had been riding with a group of friends but all decided to take different routes down the mountain to head home, leaving Dave and Anjanette together to head home together. Dave was leading and for reasons we'll never know, he lost control and ended up in the guard rail at one of the curves. Anjanette was first on the scene but did not see the accident. She and another person were able to revive Dave, Anjanette using rescue breathing she has recently learned in an Accident Scene Management Class. Dave was airlifted to Asheville where he spent weeks in intensive care. Dave had fractured 5 cervical and thoracic vertebrae which caused injury to the spinal column. Surgery was performed to fuse the fractured vertebrae.

When it was safe to transport him, Dave was taken to the Shepherd Spine Center in Atlanta. With the exception of a month that he and Anjanette were able to spend in their home in Charlotte, they have been living in Atlanta where Dave receives daily physical and occupational therapy. Their bikes and cars were sold so they could buy a wheel chair accessible van. Although Dave has made a lot of progress and is able to get around in a motorized wheel chair, he still has a long recovery ahead of him. The HOG Chapter has held one fund raiser immediately after the accident but it only made a dent in their expenses. Now we need your help by joining us in our spaghetti supper fund raiser on Saturday October 27, 2012. Tickets are available at Harley Davidson of Charlotte, at the clothing counter.....












It's in the air ... that crispness of Autumn. The changing of the leaves into the vivid fall colors. In addition to some really great riding, that gets me leaning toward the end of the year Toy Runs!

The Carolina Rider is proud to be a part of two of the biggest in the area:

The Gaston County Toy Run on Saturday December 1st


The Charlotte CBA Toy Run on Sunday December 2nd

The Carolina Rider crew and The BIG RIDE Bus will be giving away our usual prizes and trips along with a warm cup of hot chocolate!

I urge you to please put both of these heart-warming runs on your calendar now. We would love to see you there!!

Why isn't the Flyer for Your Event in this Publication?

We get literally tons of requests from folks who want us to publish their event flyer here. Beginning a couple months back, we instituted a new procedure to make that happen and it seems to be holding some of you back. I want to clear up some confusion and URGE you to utilize the truly valuable resource that we are to you FOR FREE!

Here's what you need to know: first, we're happy to help promote your not-for-profit charitable or educational motorcycle event or organization. Second tho, we just ask that you include our logo in all of your marketing materials as the folks in the flyers in Readerville above have done. Simply displaying our logo on the flyers you give out, the banners you put up, and your online promotions, means that you have our support, that we're in your corner. And having us as your active marketing partner means that we can substantially increase the numbers of riders you reach through our readership of over 55,000 motorcycle enthusiasts in The Carolinas! The businesses with flyers up there at the top of this e-Magazine PAY us a pretty penny or two for this kind of promotion that you can get for free.....

So, you can go with simply putting your event on our online Calendar ... but there's a whole lot more you can get from us FOR FREE if you get us involved early and add the TCR logo to your materials.

Please remember, ... if you have a Toy Run or other not-for-profit charitable or educational motorcycle event coming up, take a moment to ask FancyFree how The Carolina Rider can help you make it bigger and better.


In response to my taxation rant last week, I received the following email from Greg H.: "Good afternoon, We know we are taxed as we conduct our daily lives buying? enjoying things but when it is put on a collective list to see ... WOW - pretty sad. Would like to add one to your list, a number of northern states have/are trying to impose a "view tax." Yes sir, a tax to view God's creation out your front window! ... Air sold by the pound that we breath might be next. Thanks for a great e-mag."


Ride Safe and Keep The Shiny Side Up,
