Welcome: This Moto-Blog belongs to BJ and Jo Ondo! BJ has been riding motorcycles since 1976, Jo was my co-rider from 87 to 92, then she rode her own for 7 years! As of now we ride "double up" all the time. We consider ourselves, RIDERS not BIKERS! We love being out on our Harley-Davidson, 883 Sportster, we call, "Midnight"! Riding the highways and byways that's what we live for!

Our thoughts on motorcycling: "It's enough to be on your way, it's enough just to be moving on, it's enough just to cover ground"! See YOU out on the ROAD!

Pls. see our PRODUCT REVIEW at the end of the blog posts! :)

Introduction to Motorcycle House.Com:

Being long time riders on a budget, we are always looking for better price and fast service. We do try to support our local Harley-Davidson Dealership but there's times our budget makes us look for something less expensive! We usually turn to MotorcycleHouse.Com. Motorcycle House has been serving riders of all types since 2007. They are a quick growing company of similar minded riders who want to help make a difference in the Motorcycle Industry. The company was started when we realized that there wasn't a company that was passionate about riding. We’re passionate about Motorcycles regardless of what Model and Make you ride. Our company goal to help riders save money and also provide the best customer service possible. We’re tired of big motorcycle retailers that don’t understand the motorcycle lifestyle. Since we’re committed to bringing the best values and comparable products. We can use our overseas manufacturer connections, and offer necessities like Motorcycle Jackets, Chaps, and Gloves for much better prices without sacrificing our own integrity or quality. We’re always improving and looking to expand, be sure to let us know what we can improve on. There is also a company named Viking Bags which is our sister site.

CO. Hwy. 69 Ride

Put on close to 300 miles, leading a Zebulon Cruisers Ride to run CO. Hwy. 69 down to Walsenburg, CO. A great "back road" way instead of just hauling bunn's on the Interstate! We had 10 riders on different brands and types of machines and even though it was HOT, (95F+), the ride up to Westcliffe and down 69 to Walsenburg has excellent mountain vistas views with almost no traffic. We stopped in the town for a good Mexican meal at Cortina's Mex Restaurant and the company was excellent. We rode back via CO. Hwy. 165, by San Isable Lake and Bishop's Castle, more nice cooler "mountain" temps! LOL, was too busy enjoying the RIDE to take route photo's but here's some of the group both riders and machines! :)






A Just US Ride!

Jo and I took a break from being "ride leaders" and just took a great run up to Victor, CO. via Hwy. 24/67 and Teller Co. Rd. 81. This road goes in the "backway" to Victor, instead of having to go through Cripple Creek and then take CO. Hwy. 67S. into Victor. Where Cripple Creek is now a Gambling Town, Victor has stayed true to it's Gold Mining roots. We had a excellent double burger at the Victor Hotel and Restaurant, then walked around the very few streets of this tiny town. The ride on Teller Co. Rd 81 is sweet, twisty roads with great views and lot's of fluttering Aspen trees aligning the road! Some times there's nothing better than a ride that's "Just US"! :)

Stars and Strips Bike Night at American Motorcycles, in Co. Springs, CO.

In early July we rode out to a local, Non-Factory H-D Service Shop, called: American Motorcycles here in Co. Springs, CO. for a "Stars and Stripes Bike Night" and to see upclose and personal, the new "Indian Motorcycles" for the first time! They had a great band called the Klash and sloppy joes with the fix'ins for food! We checked out the Indians and really liked what we saw, if I was a RICH guy, I'd be getting a "Chieftain" model and putting on a "Trike Kit". Still we did like the new "Scout 60 models" too.

The Scout 60 is the cheapest model of Indian and has a more "Modern Style" of motor than the Full Size models. The nearest dealership is 40 miles south of C. Springs in Pueblo West but it's a easy ride down there so that's not a big issue!  Here's a photo of ME on a new Scout 60 and some photo's of the bike night, enjoy! :)

The Band!


ME on the Scout 60! :)



The 111ci. Chieftain, would make a killer looking TRIKE!

Father's Day Ride with the Zebulon Cruisers

I lead a ride on Father's Day, for the Zebulon Cruisers, Meetup.com motorcycle group. It was a 200 mile run thru the back roads of Teller Co. Colorado. It was a good group of 6 riders on all types of bikes and trikes and it was "HOT", even in the mountains it was in the high 80's and on the plains, 90 to 100F, YIKES!

Since I was leading it was an easy cruise as being 60+ my "Need For SPEED" days are far behind me, LOL! ;) Up Hwy. 24 W. over Ute Pass, then to Florissant, CO. to pick up Teller Co. Rd. 1 to the Evergreen Station for a break, then Teller Co. Rd. 11 to Bailey, CO., then CO. Hwy. 9N. to Hartsel for a fuel stop and CO. Hwy. 24 E. back to the Springs. 3 of us pulled off at Woodland Park and picked up CO. Hwy. 67 N. to Deckers, CO. for lunch. It's a really sweet twisty little road but even there it was HOT! After a good lunch we headed back to the Springs to get in some AC! :)

Ride to Westcliffe, CO. with the Zebulon Cruisers

Last Saturday I lead a ride up to the Rancher's Roost Cafe in Westcliffe, CO. for the Zebulon Cruisers a Meetup.com motorcycle group and we had a beautiful sunny day around 200 miles round trip and a great lunch with good company! Some of the Zeb's were new members so it was great to meet them and get to ride with them. Looking forward to the next ride! :)
