Rosies - Riding - In - The Wind

  • Get your motor runnin' Head out on the highway Lookin' for adventure And whatever comes our way. I like smoke and lightning Heavy metal thunder Racin' with the wind And the feelin' that I'm under Like a true nature's child We were born, born to be wild We can climb so high I never wanna die.Born to be wild, Born to be wild.

    Origin of HOG nickname

    Origin of "Hog" nickname

    Beginning in 1920, a team of farm boys, including Ray Weishaar, who became known as the "hog boys," consistently won races. The group had a hog, or pig as their mascot. Following a win, they would put the pig (a real one) on their Harley and take a victory lap.[79] In 1983, the Motor Company formed a club for owners of its product taking advantage of the long-standing nickname by turning "hog" into the acronym H.O.G., for Harley Owners Group. Harley-Davidson attempted to trademark "hog", but lost a case against an independent Harley-Davidson specialist, The Hog Farm of West Seneca, NY,[80] in 1999 when the appellate panel ruled that "hog" had become a generic term for large motorcycles and was therefore unprotectable as a trademark.[81]

    On August 15, 2006, Harley-Davidson Inc. had its NYSE ticker symbol changed from HDI to HOG

    Historic Route 66

    These are a part of my "Bucket List".....Things to do, places to go, and people to see!

    Woody Guthrie

    There is a Highway from coast to the coast,
    New York to Los Angeles,
    I'm a goin' down that road with troubles on my mind
    I got them 66 Highway Blues.

    Every old town that I ramble round,
    Down that Lonesome Road,
    The police in your town they shove me around,
    I got them 66 Highway Blues.

    Makes me no difference wherever I ramble
    Lord, wherever I go,
    I don't wanna be pushed around by the police in your town,
    I got them 66 Highway Blues.

    Been on this road for a mighty long time,
    Ten million men like me,
    You drive us from your town, we ramble around,
    And got them 66 Highway Blues.

    Sometimes I think I'll blow down a cop,
    Lord, you treat me so mean,
    I done lost my gal, I aint got a dime,
    I got them 66 Highway Blues.

    Sometimes I think I'll get me a gun,
    Thirty eight or big forty four,
    But a number for a name and a big 99,
    Is worse than 66 Highway Blues.

    I'm gonna start me a hungry man's union,
    Ain't a-gonna charge no dues,
    Gonna march down that road to the Wall Street Walls
    A singin' those 66 Highway blues.
