Beginning of the End?
President Donald Trump declared war on Harley-Davidson on Tuesday, saying it's decision to shift limited production overseas would be the “beginning of the end” for the iconic motorcycle company.  He also predicted he would suffer little fallout for his aggressive tweets. "The people who ride Harley-Davidsons are not happy with Harley-Davidson,” Trump told reporters.  "Their employees and customers are already very angry at them,” Trump said in an early morning tweet....REALLY?  Maybe he needs to go for a ride on a Harley and actually listen to people.  After spending the last two weeks traveling across this beautiful country, meeting and talking with bikers, HD employees, and by the way riding an  incredible machine, it is impossible for me to understand where this crazy, illogical, thoughtless rhetoric comes from.

It saddens my heart when an iconic American company is threatened and attacked in such a reckless manner.

HWY 83 - Surfaced All The Way
 On the road again!  Flying to Brownsvile, TX tomorrow and ridin' a spankin' new 2018 Harley-Davidson LowRider from the Gulf of Mexico north to Canada.  On assignment for HOG Magazine.  US HWY 83 runs roughly along the 100th Meridian.  Been told this road marks the historic divide between the civilized eastern United States and the real American West.

Be stopping by the Spinach Capital of the World, lookin' for the largest oak tree in Texas, havin' a real milk shake made at the oldest Rexall Drug Store in the west, checkin' out the Chalk Pyramids in Kansas,  paying respect to Sitting Bull, visiting the Knife River Indian Village in South Dakota...the list just goes on.

Anyway, wifi permitting,  tune in over on Talon's Tips and Tales everyday for the latest road trip reports.  If You live along HWY 83 give me a shout out and we can grab a cup of coffee.

be strong, be safe, Talon
