Busted Knuckle Motorcycle – Newton, NC

Arrived without an appointment on a Saturday morning with 2 tires to be mounted on rims. Did not expect nor did I ask for instant service. They got me in and out within 45 minutes! WOW!!! Great service.

While I was there I browsed in their retail section. Nice selection of normal service parts, brake pads, oils, helmets, etc. Will be using Busted Knuckle in Newton, NC for future services. 100 times better customer service than Blue Ridge Harley-Davidson in Hickory, NC.


Product review…

I’ve owned and worn a multitude of boots for motorcycling over the past 45+ years of riding on the street. Everything from GI issued combat boots, hunting boots, hiking boots, and motorcycle specific boots. Any boot is better than no boot. However I have now found the best motorcycle boots I’ve ever worn.

The ICON Stormhawk. They are lightweight, waterproof, offer increased protection, and utilize a unique lacing system. Been riding with these for 6 months now, and love these boots!

Portable QRP HF

Spoke with WZ4C over the weekend about dusting off the battery powered QRP gear and setting up in one or more of the local parks for a day of operating. WZ4C and I pretty much have a mirror image of the same gear for portable operating. Yaesu FT-817ND, Wolf River Coils portable 75-10m vertical antenna, an assortment of lightweight batteries, and a portable solar panel. It’s a worthwhile fun challenge with the QRP gear!
