For the average rider, you start thinking about putting your motorcycle to bed about this time of year. Thoughts of maintenance, upgrades and new paint generally start to spring forth.

But there is a whole other aspect of busy-ness that comes with the month of October.

Many riding Clubs and groups start holding elections for officers and board members.
All riding clubs, groups and charitable organizations can use some fresh blood, so now would be a good time to join one if you are at all thinking of it.

Almost all are planning the 2010 riding season.
Deciding on new ride nights or how to make their poker run or rally, bigger, better.

There are many things that you, the average rider or member of a riding club can do to help every club, charity and event become more successful in 2010.

You can start by ensuring  your group is well represented in the 2010 event calendars for starters.  Our New Provincial Calendars are now ready for your submissions - on the sub menu you can pick your province and start adding!

Please search the events first to make sure someone else hasn't already added the event to our calendars before you add an event!!!!  This will become more and more important as 2010 dates start being set!

When you are adding your events - add the venue first - it just makes the whole process easier. Also - make sure you add postal codes and street addresses whenever possible. This way a Google Map can be generated!

Make sure you do your best to provide as much information on your events as possible. Knowledge is POWER and the more people know about your event like who to contact, how much, where, when and why....the better off everyone is!

The next thing you can do to promote your club or group is to make sure we have your riding club web site linked to ours.  On the home page you will see the link to the directory - make sure your group is there.  (We are upgrading this section, so now is a good time to make sure we have your club represented and that your web site address is current).  We'd really appreciate a link back on your group web site.

You can submit stories about your club and or its events, it's fabulous volunteers.

If your community is not represented on our web site or in the Busted Knuckle Chronicles - you have only yourself to blame. We can not promote what we don't know about so help us to help you! 

Our web site is a fairly busy one with a lot of visitors from around the world who are looking for information on events, motorcycle groups, travel and tourism information and the like so why not take a bit of time to promote your club or group with us. It's FREE and all members are able to add value to our web site for the rest of the motorcycle community to enjoy and benefit from. Networking - it's what makes a community strong!

If you are riding today, please, ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you.
