There have been at least 7 fatalities in our community here in Canada this past weekend.

My heart always gets heavy when I hear the news of a rider dying because I think of their family.  So to the families of the 7 riders we know about, my heart goes out to you and I am lifting prayers that you have the strength you need to get through this painful time.

Canada Day was reasonably quiet here, I have been attempting to get caught up from being on the road so much and so my blog posts have been non existent for the last week.

I plan to be leaving Grande Prairie again on either Friday or Saturday for Invermere and Horse Thief Hideout - I have 2 months of books and invoicing to do thanks to having to fire the new book keeper...I also have a newspaper to get out and phone books to ship out before I can leave!  The good news is - the reward for working like a dog is that I get to ride!

Our Dirty Girl Contest is well under way with 11 bikes vying to win their riders the tickets to the Eric Church Concert at the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis - these VIP tickets are sponsored by Russ Brown!  You do not need to be a member of our site to vote and you can vote once per HOUR!

I have started a new photo gallery on for all of the crazy, wonderful photo jokes that get shared with me. A few months ago I started keeping them in folders and recently decided that I needed to share that medicine with you all!
I hope you enjoy my new Mental Health Corner!

Our new classifieds component has been installed and I am excited to see people start using it! Classified ads are free to post on our site, you need to be a member - but membership is also free!  If you have something to sell or trade - check it out and put our network of some 70,000 people to work for you today!

Yes - slowly but surely the transformation of our web site is getting there! I am grateful to see it happening!

Our new Busted Knuckle Chronicles section is almost completed - this is where you will find the majority of the Canadian Motorcycle Community Stories!

I have a ton of video yet to complete from my trip to Yellowknife - the HHR and the rider training class I took in Edmonton last week - the work never ends but I am grateful to have it to do!!!!

I am keeping this update short and sweet as I have a meeting shortly with the City of Grande Prairie works department as we get ready to start making and installing High Collision Intersection Signs for Motorcycles and bicycles - it's a project I have been working on for over a year that looks like it might finally come to fruition! Once we get the new signs approved by the DOT in Alberta, we should start seeing them go up!

There is a TON of news in the feeds today - lots of news that may affect your life as a rider!
Check it all out at where our work is keeping YOU informed!

Have a happy Tuesday everyone!
