When I founded Rider Justice, I had many goals but, first and foremost, I want to make it safer for bikers to ride! We accomplish this through several efforts, including legislative advocacy (let’s end texting and driving!), and also by helping riders make sure they have the right motorcycle insurance (auto drivers don’t carry enough to cover the injuries they cause).
BThere is rarely a weekend in Colorado’s riding season that riders don’t ride for a good charity or cause. Motorcycle riders have always been the go-to group when a charity needs assistance. At the same time, our community also suffers an epidemic of motorcycle accidents and fatalities and the community outside of ours, rarely steps up to help us.
Motorcycle riders are a group of people that seem to have more friends suffer tragedy than just about any other group of friends. I am reminded this month of May, that it is Motorcycle Awareness Month. I decided this issue that I wanted to tell the riding community about my friend Jacqueline “Jaxx” Tabcum.

As a rider who has rode for many years, I have seen my share of friends having accidents. In April, I decided to attend an Accident Scene Management class hosted by BikerDown and Rider Justice, and Executive Director Laurie Montoya asked me to give a rider’s perspective of what I learned in the class. Boy did I learn a lot.
Wide Open Saloon is a new restaurant coming to Sedalia that will be opening this summer, but that isn’t stopping Wide Open Saloon from helping the motorcycle community in a charitable way, long before they are even open.
When I heard that local Colorado women riders were determined to be in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2019 for having the most women riders on one ride, I had to meet the person behind this vision. Susan Udero talked to me about her inspiration of organizing this world record attempt in Colorado and how she planned to make this happen.[Read more…] about Women’s World Record Attempt
June 2nd – Tri-City Cycle (Loveland) The sport-bike community in Colorado has come together to promote safety and education for riders and drivers. We are organizing a group ride and an awareness campaign with BikerDown.org.
How many of you have had to have your bike towed and cringed when your insurances’ roadside assistance brought the wrong type of tow truck. Biker’s in Colorado are very fortunate to have motorcycle towing companies such as Munky Mark who owns Motorcycle Transport Specialists. Munky has long been known as Colorado’s #1 motorcycle towing company.
