As we begin our 7th year providing weekly community news through the Busted Knuckle Chronicles I want to say a huge thank you to the people who make up our humble little rag.

It's been a challenging ride. 

Sometimes incredibly tough, sometimes incredibly exciting but ALWAYS incredibly rewarding.

The BEST thing about the newspaper to me is the people - the people who write the stories, the people who are the stories and the people who read the stories.

Here in the west in particular our community hasn't had much in the way of communication tools that allow us a sense of community, connectedness. I feel like the Busted Knuckle Chronicles gives us some of that and I hope to see it continue to grow and flourish as it tells the stories of the Canadian Riding Community. Connectedness - brother/

That's what the Busted Knuckle Chronicles is all about - FAMILY and you who ride, who love the wind - you are my family.

On June 4th our web site will celebrate the beginning of it's 6th year on the web and while a baby in so many ways our clearinghouse of information has helped so many riders find the information they need and that in itself is so rewarding.

I have a birthday wish I want to share with you because it's only you guys and dolls who can make it come true....

I wish that every Canadian who rides, every person who rides would get involved in whatever way is right for them.

On our web site:  - you can submit stories, blog and share etc.
Our newspaper The Busted Knuckle Chronicles - submit your riding club stories, your event and community stories...
Get involved with our Facebook Groups: Biker/Rider Friendly Businesses in Canada or
Belt Drive Betty's Awareness Conga to the Wharf Rat Rally Group on Face Book.
The more you get involved either sharing your customer service stories, or helping us with surveys and information - the more we share...the better, the stronger and the tighter our community becomes.

My dream - my Birthday wish?
A strong, united and informed riding community - a tight knit family.
