We love getting correspondence from the many folks who use AIRHAWK. And apparently some of you folks can write pretty well. Who knew? One thing we can say for sure is that our community makes for some fun, colorful and opinionated characters. That includes folks like “Reddog,” who recently sent us the following story about a long ride on “old iron”!
About your product. Several friends had told me about your product in probably about 2009. There were 4 of us preparing to ride “The Motorcycle Cannonball” on our late model iron. I ordered up 4 of these things. They went on two 15 Harleys and a 15 Excelsior, with the senior member of our contingent electing to ride with his sheep skin watch-a-callit. Well we thought we were the cat’s ass. I had ridden several thousand miles on my 1915 Harley with “The Airhawk.” Holy Mackeral, what a very effective product.
I think the worst part of our journey was after a very long day, right at 300 miles. That may not sound like much to some, but, when the newest bike allowed is 1915, the weather was 90 degrees, the humidity was 90% and we rode into Hot Springs without getting monkey butt. What a product.
Incidently, 3 of the 4 of our team made all 3294 miles, with the 4th missing 90 miles with a magneto failure on one day… not bad for 95 year old iron.
The sad news is that the “Old Bastard,” “Rickter”, didn’t use one. We ended up in a 10 way tie and Rickter won the tie breaker because he was the oldest rider. That really sucked, because it shot me down to 8th. “Stork,” using an Airhawk , pulled off a 3rd on his 15 Excelsior and “Gold Tooth” missing 90 miles was an exceptional accomplishment on old iron.
Now let me tell you about the real pisser.We get to Kitty Hawk, thinking we’re the cat’s ass, with our tush cushes, but noooooooo, Cris Simmons is sponsored by you guys. Annnnnnnnd, the van is equipped with them too. You sexist bastards. Hell, poor old “Goldtooth” has hemerrhoids (is that spelled right?) so bad he couldn’t have made it without the Airhawk. Hell, he couldn’t even load his roll chart.
Now here is my suggestion. I have included the above forementioned individuals in this e-mail. In order to prevent a reverse discrimination lawsuit, I think that a viable solution would be to equip all of our motocycles with Airhawks.
We hereby formally consider your request, Reddog!
