Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.      ·      Sometimes it takes a whole tank full of fuel before you can think straight.      ·      There are drunk riders. There are old riders. There are NO old, drunk riders.      ·      You don't stop riding because you get old, you get old because you stop riding.      ·      Catching a yellow-jacket in your shirt at seventy miles per hour can double your vocabulary.      ·      If you still have fuel in the tank, you’re not lost yet.      ·      Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you and scorn in the one ahead.      ·      There are two types of people in this world: people who ride motorcycles and those who wish they did.      ·      If you can't get it going with bungee cords and duct tape, it's serious.      ·      Midnight bugs taste best.      ·      Whatever it is, it's better in the wind.

About Chilhowee Motorcycle Leather

Having ridden motorcycles since his youth, in early 2001 Chil Livingood purchased a new big V-twin cruiser and started customizing it to match his tastes. The first thing he did was to purchase what ended up being a poor-fitting, cheap looking pair of fringe cowhide lever covers. He quickly became disgusted with them, took them off, and threw them in a box in his leather shop.

Then it dawned on him! Why not craft his own custom designed leather accessories that will be guaranteed to fit his motorcycle? And that's exactly what he did. He measured the parts of his motor where he wanted the accessories, then took some Elk, Deer, and Buffalo hide from his Native American supplies, and began making some awesome leather stuff for his scooter! And what a difference it made! Besides looking and fitting great, they felt incredibly soft to the touch.  

To see if any of his brothers and sisters on the motorcycle forums might be interested, he made several trips to the Harley-Davidson, Honda, Indian, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Victory, and Yamaha dealerships. he then carefully measured the varying widths, lengths, and circumferences of clutch and brake levers, forks and shock covers, floorboards, etc. so Chil could offer the same custom fitted products for the most popular cruisers.

When Chil received 40 orders his first week after posting his products on various motorcycle forums, it became obvious that riders all over America, Canada, and elsewhere were looking for custom-fitted, exotic leather accessories. The rest is history! Chilhowee staff never get tired of reading the email from satisfied customers. It makes their hard work worth it.

Chil and his staff's journey now is a path to find balance, harmony, and connection with the earth and all life in the Sacred Circle. Their mission is very simple, and they test everything they do against it - from selecting leather hides to the way they protect the fringe from getting wrinkled in the packaging and shipping process: It is our mission to make sure every customer's experience with Chilhowee exceeds their expectations, hopes, and needs.

"Ours is a journey to harmony and connection that will bring us to a place of integrity and to care for the Earth and all our family."

Chilhowee ("Chil") Livingood, Cherokee Artisan
