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.

If you are a motorcycle rider who visits Dirty Dogs Roadhouse as much as I do, you surely have to agree that the continued transformation of Dirty Dogs is nothing short of miraculous. Last weekend over Memorial Day weekend, I watched as Mark, Rob and the DD team transformed our local biker bar into a concert venue the likes of which this community hasn’t seen here in Denver at the biker bar level.[Read more…] about Molly Hatchet Concert Rocked!

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.

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.

From September 19 through 23, 2018, ABATE of Colorado hosted hundreds of bikers for the annual Meeting of the Minds conference. What an amazing gathering of caring bikers from around the country! Everywhere you turned, bikers were greeting each other with hugs, questions about family members, big barks of laughter, and a few embraces of condolence. Such a warm, passionate, loving gathering of bad-ass bikers! [Read more…] about Motorcycle Rider Foundation Brings Bikers Together in Denver
