"To be a clearinghouse of information" That was the main idea when I started the Busted Knuckle Chronicles newspaper 5 years ago - a place where riders could get the information they need and or want, a place for us to share the stories of the Canadian Riding Community....
That dream had many facets to it. The newspaper was what got it all started.

Today we have one of the best sets of web sites out there - it's really more like a web ring or in our case a web wheel.

By now, most of you know that Ali and I work our community web site like a business, 8 to 10 hours a day 6 to 7 days a week depending on what's going on.

As a result of the hours we spend working, reading and connecting with other riders we get to meet the best people right across this country, like the gent I met this morning from Saint John NB!

A retired broadcaster who has debilitating Degenerative Osteo Arthritis that will end his riding days sooner than later, Sean O'shaughnessy started a video blog to try and inform New Brunswick Riders about what's a shaking in their communities in New Brunswick.

He volunteers in an effort to support his community which he says keeps him from going crazy and helps keep him busy.

Sean has agreed to join the Belt Drive Betty network of reporters and will be our New Brunswick Volunteer Editor and will endeavour to bring us as much news from New Brunswick as he can! Visit his new blog:

With the re launching of our web sites coming in the next five days or so - this is fabulous news!

I have made all sorts of wonderful connections to people from right across the country and around the world because of this job I took on and I have to tell you - it feels great to meet so many of like mind and be able to highlight what they do in and for our communities!

My life altering car accident took away one career but it has put me on this path - the path of helping motorcyclists of Canada to be informed and better connected. Things really do seem to happen for a reason!

Rider Powered News - Canadian riders working together to keep each other up on what's happening in our communities from coast to coast! It's pretty cool to see your dreams coming true...

Ride safe out there....
