Born to ride
San Francisco native and Department of Public Works employee Steve Mahoney has two loves: his Harley Davidson motorcycle and the 49ers football team. Fortunately for Mahoney, a.k.a. “The Harleyman,” he was able to combine the two last year.
Mahoney was selected to ride his hog onto the field, carrying the 49ers flag for the team’s home opener in early December and in the Dec. 14 game against Arizona, according to the San Francisco Weekly. To show his team spirit, Mahoney even painted red and white stripes on his motorcycle’s fenders.
And, that spirit will endure, Mahoney says, despite the 49ers’ iffy record this season. “Don’t count ’em out,” he told the San Francisco Weekly. “I always wait to the bitter end.”
