Inspiration For TANK

Inspiration strikes at the craziest times. I could be doing something I do everyday. A monotonous routine that will get all shook up simply by someone saying something. Something a little different, something I’ve never heard before, and BAM. Inspiration will hit me like a brick, and ideas will flow so fast I know I need to run to write them down. And sometimes, I’ll wish for that brick to the head but end up with nothing.┬áMaybe feathers if I’m lucky.

And while I wish I could say I’m super creative, I’m not. I have to search the internet for inspiration daily. When it came to trying to pair a motorcycle to┬áthe characters in my new series, well, I was more lost than ever. I’ve never even been on a motorcycle, much less do I know anything at all about them. So, I did what any desperate housewife/mom/writer would do. I asked a guy. And I searched the Harley website. See, real creative, I know.

But, inspiration did come as I am a visual person and Harley has some beautiful pictures of their motorcycles. So without further ado, I will introduce you to the motorcycles of the series.

Tank’s bike: A Harley Davidson Road King in Billet Silver.

JoJo’s Bike: A Harley Davidson Street 500 in Vivid Black.

Father’s Bike: A Harley Davidson Heritage Softail in Crushed Ice Pearl and Frosted Teal Pearl.

And Steele’s bike is a bit more of my own creation, as I couldn’t find a picture of exactly what I wanted for him. This picture was taken from www.350cc.com. Steele drives and Indian Chopper with flames, but imagine red instead of orange. Fire engine red at that.

Which is your favorite? Personally, I’m partial to all of them, but there is something about Tank’s bike I like the most.
