Father’s Day Sale

Father’s Day was originally created in 1910 to complement Mother’s Day which was founded a year earlier.  The holiday grew with the help of trade groups that made very manly stuff such as ties, tobacco pipes and coffee mugs full of gasoline.  70 years later, it became a commercial success and once a year, every year, we think of Dad and rush around at the last minute to find something… Read More

The best behaved dog being towed behind a motorcycle I have ever seen

thunder stroke

  According to a Ride Apart, the new Indian Chief V-Twin motorcycle is going to be sold this summer at a price of $19,000.
