Our November 2016 cover bike is a 2001 Harley-Davidson Sportster Trike that is owned by Dr. Lonnie Blum from Holden, Missouri. To find out more about Lonnie, check out his interview, and for more photos of his trike and our cover model Hollie, check out her interview as well. For this month’s issue, we also invite you to check out our behind the scenes photos and video taken during our November 2016 cover shoot.
