This year marks the 38th year that Rocky Mountain Harley-Davidson has put on an annual ride the Sunday before Thanksgiving. This motorcycle ride has, for over three decades, seen all types of weather, riders, and routes for a basic poker run.

Before it became a “Humane Issue,” in the early years, there was even a live turkey given away! [Read more…] about 2018 RMHD Turkey Run

Mile High Sisters of Colorado is a ladies’ motorcycle group in the Denver area. This group was developed because there seemingly were no other local groups that hosted rides. The other groups were more meeting and socializing at bars and talking about riding.
After receiving her motorcycle endorsement, the founder of Mile High Sisters also known as Road Queen just wanted to ride, ride, and ride! This is one badass lady.

In 2005 Wayne Brand, a Marathon Ontario rider, crashed his motorcycle with his step daughter on the back. She suffered some pretty bad injuries and went through some surgeries, but for the most part, she’s doing well these days.
Wayne on the other hand struggles with partial paralysis, short term memory loss (although his long term memory is crystal clear) and was moved into long term care in the Marathon Hospital a number of years ago.

My Father was a WWII Veteran, and I have a great painting on my bike with “Freedom isn’t Free”, the American flag and an eagle as a tribute to him.

BikerDown National announced on September 15th that they have taken a necessary step to help riders fundraise online here in Colorado and nationwide.

A jury in El Paso, Texas decided Friday that it is illegal for a member of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club to possess a weapon in the state.

Although it was conceded by all sides that DT had no felony record and was not a convicted criminal, the prosecution argued, and the jury agreed, that merely being a member of the Bandidos was enough to consider an individual a gang member prohibited from exercising their 2nd Amendment rights.
