Our June 2016 cover bike is owned by Ronnie Coffelt, and we enjoyed shooting his 2010 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail for this month’s cover. Ronnie is from Wellsville, Kansas, and we had the opportunity to gather additional information about him and his bike. We also had fun shooting cover model Patience on Ronnie’s bike for this month’s cover. I’m sure you’ll also enjoy this month’s behind the scenes photos and video!
