Our June 2017 cover bike is owned by Jeff "Polock" Zielinski, and we enjoyed shooting his 1996 Harley-Davidson Softail "Orange Peeler" for this month’s cover. Polock is from Independence, Missouri, and we had the opportunity to gather additional information about him and his Orange Peeler. We also enjoyed shooting cover model Angela on Polock’s bike for this month’s cover. I’m sure you’ll also enjoy this month’s behind the scenes photos and video!
