Our July 2013 cover bike is owned by good friend and fellow Cycle Connections team member Danny Webb from Kansas City, Missouri. This isn’t the first time one of Danny’s bikes has graced our cover. Our May 2012 cover featured Danny’s 2010 Harley-Davidson Street Glide, which he recently sold so he could buy his new bike. As you can see, Danny has already started customizing his Road King to make it another beautiful piece of art. For this month’s cover girl we chose LeeAnn, who makes his bike look even better!

Some of Danny’s interview answers are the same as last time; however, there’s a few things that have changed since his last cover shoot over a year ago.

CC: Danny, what is your occupation?

Danny: I’m a social worker.

CC: Do you have any hobbies other than motorcycling?

Danny: Is there anything else?

CC: Why do you ride?

Danny: It gives me a sense of freedom, to be alone and to feel the solidarity of riding with others.

CC: How long have you been riding?

Danny: Since I was five.

CC: What was your first bike?

Danny: It was a 30cc Little Indian with training wheels.

CC: How many bikes have you owned?

Danny: I believe I’ve owned nine different bikes. I drank a lot for several years, so it was kind of a blurry time. The Road King is my 3rd Harley.

CC: How many bikes do you currently own?

Danny: Just the Road King. I can’t afford to have more than one, although it would be nice to have a bobber in the garage also.

CC: What do you like most about your Road King?

Danny: The true feeling of riding without a windshield. It’s raw and honest.

CC: What is your dream bike?

Danny: For now it is my Ol’ School Road King. I’ve wanted one for quite a while, but like I said earlier I would dig having a custom Bobber also.

CC: What is your most memorable riding experience?

Danny: My first year riding to Sturgis with the Swinging Dick Bike Club (S.D.B.C.). I loved the big smile every kid in a car gave us as we passed them, and you could see the “I want to be just like you when I grow up!” look in their eyes. Riding the Black Hills was CRAZY the first time. I absolutely loved it; it was EMOTIONAL….

CC: What is your least memorable riding experience?

Danny: Years ago when I was a bad drinker. I dropped my bikes a lot of times.

CC: To what motorcycle clubs or organizations do you belong?

Danny: The Cycle Connections crew, and I’m also a member of the Sturgis Swinging Dick Bike Club - my Sturgis week group.

CC: What motorcycle rallies & events have you attended, and which is your favorite?

Danny: I rode to the 70th, 71st, and 72nd Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, a multitude of small benefit rides, and of course a lot of Cycle Connections Cover Bike & Cover Model Search events. I love them all for different reasons. As far as my favorites go, Sturgis; DUH, and Cycle Connections events because it’s fun being part of something really cool, and the smaller benefit rides because of the amazing sensation of doing something you love (riding) while contributing to an array of heart touching benefit rides.

CC: Do you have a favorite bike night hangout?

Danny: One-Eyed Jacks on Parvin Road. It’s just a bunch of good ole’ people having a good time.

CC: Tell us about your tattoos?

Danny: I have two big chest pieces, both arms are quarter sleeved, a half back piece and a half leg sleeve; all Japanese themed. My favorite is probably the Sun Rising on my leg. It’s colorful, and reminds me that tomorrow is another day; the sun always rises.

CC: Who is your favorite tattoo artist?

Danny: Butch from Butch’s Tattoo’s on 7 Highway in Blue Springs, Missouri. He does absolutely amazing work and cover up work. He does free hand, with a bonus of being very affordable. Butch is a BAD ASS tattoo artist!

CC: Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself?

Danny: Of course, I enjoy both equally. Riding alone gives you such a sense of freedom, while riding in a group brings the feeling of camaraderie. I have no preference.

CC: Who are some of your closest riding buddies?

Danny Hard Hittin Mark Whitton, who I haven’t gotten to ride with for a while. Hope he gets another bike soon. Plus Tony Casas the Parrot savior, who I hope goes to Sturgis with us this year, and of course the Swinging Dick Bike Club.

CC: Thank you for the interview Danny.
