Would you agree riding a Harley-Davidson® or any motorcycle is thrilling? Would you also say there are days when you live to ride and ride to live? Do you believe all riders have a brotherhood, a sisterhood, an unspoken connection? [Read more…] about Bike Nights Support the Community

Motorcycle Depot is a Mom-and-Pop family owned dealership in Aurora, CO that has been in business for over 10 years. Adam Levy (owner) started working in a motorcycle shop at 16 and has been working on motorcycles ever since. He says his mission is ‘for everyone to have a good experience’ and his favorite part about owning the business is the people. Motorcycle Depot has a selection of motorcycles, dirt- bike apparel, accessories, helmets, tires, parts, and motorcycle repair and servicing. More information is available on their website at www. shopmotorcycledepot.com.
Adam was originally in law enforcement and started the annual Ride and Rally charity event at Motorcycle Depot to support the local Police. The event has evolved to help specific individuals going through a difficult time, rather than a large agency. Past events have gone to support funeral services for Officer’s families, Officer’s paralyzed in the line of duty, and Officers fighting cancer. This year Motorcycle Depot is supporting the daughter of an Aurora Police Officer, Officer Shane Ellison, fighting her second battle with cancer. At just 4 years of age, Officer Ellison’s daughter Tayler was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor and against all odds, survived to grow into a lovely young woman. But now, at just 13 years old, Tayler has developed a new aggressive cancer, an unfortunate side effect of her previous therapy. The Ellison family thought they had faced the worst that could happen to Tayler but are now facing another uphill battle against cancer. During Tayler’s first cancer, the Ellison’s kept things going with very little help. But this time, we aren’t going to let that happen.

There are many veteran charities that the biker community supports. All of them are much needed for those who have served, but none are quite like the Freedom Fest every June. In 2014, 89 Industries and Freedom Fest LLC was founded on the belief that “Freedom is Not Free.” Founder Dean Gary sought to make a difference and discovered an amazing charity called American Soldier Network. Their founder, Annie Nelson, has dedicated her life to helping our service men and women. [Read more…] about Freedom Fest 2018

On March 18, 2018, Ramon Sepulveda was out riding with friends, and it was a beautiful Colorado day. Then, in the blink of an eye, a car pulled out in front of him. Ramon woke up in the hospital, and his world would be forever changed. Ramon lost his right arm and his left arm was shattered. Ramon’s positive spirit, given the challenges he is facing, is nothing short of miracle. His love for life and the hope that he will ride again are a testament to the spirit of a motorcycle rider … no matter what you ride. [Read more…] about Ramon Sepulveda Fundraiser
Littleton, CO — On Saturday, March 24th and Sunday, March 25th, BikerDown hosted classes for Accident Scene Management to dozens of area riders to better prepare them should they ever witness an accident. As we know, with Colorado’s dismal statistics for biker fatalities, these classes are desperately needed.
The training sessions were presented by Accident Scene Management, Inc. and our teachers for the day, were certified instructors and medical professionals: Vicki “Spitfire” Sanfelipo, RN/EMT and Don Enninga, EMT-I. Each day of training was a full 8-hours jam packed with gritty and vital information about what can happen at the scene of a motorcycle accident.
The event was sponsored by The O’Sullivan Law Firm which drastically reduced the prices for those who attended. Said Scott O’Sullivan who also attended the sessions, “It is incredibly important that riders everywhere know everything they can should they see another rider go down. I have never had a case where a rider wasn’t severely injured. The more people who know what to do when the worst happens, the better!”
“We now have 50 more riders out there who know how to secure the scene and render aid until EMT or paramedics can get there. This is what BikerDown is all about!” said Laurie Montoya, BikerDown Founder.
