This issue will focus a lot on veterans and their upcoming events up in June. The Freedom Fest, Brotherhood of Veterans, Combat Vets and many more have events that will help our veterans with hands on services and boots on the ground assistance here in Colorado. It has always been my policy to donate and support charities that help actual residents and not send my funds to a charity outside of my local community.[Read more…] about Honoring Our Military
Last month I covered hearing and tinnitus and the damage loud noises can have on your hearing.
This month, I had the pleasure of riding with Will and Marie Cornell last season. They are both deaf, and they love to ride. Will brought his other friends who were also deaf to a Cool Biker Lunch and Ride event. They are all fun people; although it was a little difficult to communicate with them, we all seemingly understood each other. They use the American Sign Language (ASL) and some can talk.[Read more…] about Deaf Motorcycle Riders
For over three years, I have been working with Colorado Senator Lois Court to make Colorado’s roads safer through legislation to reduce distracted driving. Thankfully, we’re making tremendous progress and 2019 could be an important year in our fight to end texting-while-driving in Colorado.

For several years now, I have been working with Susan Dane of CORD
and with Colorado Senator Lois Court to end distracted driving in Colorado.

I love this expression, “Couples that ride together, stay together.” When you are a motorcycle enthusiast, having your partner enjoy motorcycle riding is important and sometimes a deal breaker. I strongly feel it’s important to be [Read more…] about Riding ￼TOGETHER
This is probably one of the most difficult articles I will ever write in Colorado Rider News. My Mentor and best friend, Randy Savely is retiring. I asked Randy for permission to write this article. He isn’t one for computers or to make a fuss, but this community owes Randy Savely a debt a gratitude for over 10 years of service to the biker community but also the injured riders he has touched over the years personally and through the Randy Run for Fallen Bikers.

Here we are in the dead of winter and even the most die-hard riders are having to crawl into their cages to get from Point A to Point B. I thought I’d share some advice about calling police after an accident because the decision is often less obvious when you’re in a car. Typically, if a motorcycle is involved in an accident, there’s no question whether you need to call police; the damages and injuries are usually significant. But what about car accidents?

Bruce Philp was in his 50s when he says, “Something detonated inside me.”
He was sitting at his car dealership getting an oil change and looked across the street to a Yamaha dealership. [Read more…] about Under Every Motorcycle Helmet Lives a Philosopher
October is always the month that makes me wonder where the year went. The mountains are getting a dusting of snow and Christmas is only 90 days away. In a couple of weeks, I will begin BikerDown’s Adopt a Family for the Holidays, and in a blink of an eye, The Children’s Hospital Toy Run will be upon us.

Freedom isn’t free. How many times have you heard this stated in conversations about our nation’s veterans, the military in general, our law enforcement and other patriotic settings and events? 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. Freedom in our country has been secured by millions of patriots like my Dad who proudly served our great nation. [Read more…] about Freedom isn’t Free
