The second annual Aidan’s Ride Sturgis, a charity motorcycle ride organized to fight ALD, will take place August 8, 2016, during the 76th anniversary of the iconic Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Last year, 75 riders participated, raising over $13,500 for the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation, and organizers expect an even bigger turnout this time around.

“We were so happy with the response and support we received,” said Elisa Seeger, Aidan’s mother and founder of the foundation. “This is another great step in our journey and mission to educate people about ALD and hopefully save families from enduring what ours did.” Read More

KCPD Officer Working for Quick Trip Threatens Sons of Silence & Mongols

By | Biker's Rights | No Comments

video-shows-sons-silence-mc-members-threatened-false-arrest-featured-image-620x329Video obtained by the MPP captures two members of the Sons of Silence Motorcycle Club being harassed and threatened with false arrest on the night of June 25th, 2016 at a Quick Trip service station in Kansas City because, according to one KCPD officer Marchant, “1%’ers aren’t allowed at the Quick Trip while the KC police are present.”

Importantly, the employees at the Quick Trip had no issue with serving these individuals, frequent customers of this particular establishment. It is unconstitutional for an agent of the government to impose discriminatory access restrictions on anyone, including members of 1% motorcycle clubs.

This incident is one example in an extensive pattern of evidence demonstrating the epidemic of motorcycle profiling and discrimination taking place in Missouri and most pockets of America. Legislation prohibiting the practice of profiling and providing a mechanism of relief for victims is long overdue.

Friday Funny

By | Humor | No Comments

A biker, on his deathbed, confessed to his ol’ lady, “Baby, I’ve been unfaithful to you, but every time I put a silver dollar behind the kitchen stove. Every single dollar is there, except the one I spent for medicine.”

Surprisingly, the bro recovered and his ol’ lady took sick. She too felt she might die and should confess, so she said, “I was unfaithful to you too, dear, but every time I was unfaithful, I dropped a pea through the little hole in the kitchen floor. They are all still under the house, except the three bushels we ate during hard times last winter.”

Sturgis Bound? Take a Pit Stop and Get Klocked

By | Events | No Comments

10_presturgThere are just over 860,000 residents in South Dakota, and last year, during the 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the number of people in the state nearly doubled. The rally brought in close to 750,000 people, setting a record. Mitchell, home of Klock Werks, is 300 miles east of Sturgis, but being right off of Interstate 90, the streets of Mitchell are just as flooded with revved engines! And this year, bikers will have yet another milestone to attend before the rally, the 10th Annual Pre-Sturgis Party at Klock Werks, and everyone is invited!

Eleven years ago, Laura joined Team Klock Werks to help frieds with what was then a small motorcycle shop. The guys were building bikes into the wee hours of the morning, and while Laura left the garage to run some errands, she noticed bikers all over town, at hotels, in parking lots, just hanging out. They had stopped for the night to take a break from the highway.

“When I got back to the shop, I told Brian (Klock) there were bikers everywhere, and we should invite them to all hang out here,” Laura Klock said.

Busy with deadline, Brian declined, but Laura was inspired to bring everyone together. Always family oriented, Laura made the hang-out happen the following year in 2006, and the Pre-Sturgis Party was born!  Read More

Drag_Ad_seth_vertical2The 2-into-1 pipe XL riders were waiting for

Press Release: Almost from the minute we unleashed a full stainless steel 2-into-1 power pipe for the Dyna, the Road Rage III, Sportster riders have been blowing up the social media sites and blogs asking what about us! Well, they have their answer now. The full stainless steel XL application Bassani 2-into-1 is here. It’s brand-new, and will be available through your local Drag Specialties dealer1FXRSS_670px_

It’s no surprise that we are  quick to follow up that Dyna-application Road Rage III with its Sportster counterpart. That stainless steel 2-into-1 for the Dynas was an immediate hit. This Sportster version, with direct-fit applications for 1986 through present-year models with mid-controls, is sure to follow suit. It’s also no surprise that R&D so closely followed the look, sound, style and design of that Dyna pipe with this Sportster version. Totally in-tune with the current all-business/take-no-prisoners trend sweeping the XL world this Bassani 2-into-1 not only has that stainless-steel construction, its pipes, especially the front head pipe, are tucked in to nicely hug the contours of the engine for a great fit and lots of ground clearance. And those pipes, 1 ¾-inch leading into a 2 ¼-inch collector, are Sportster tuned. It all finishes off with an upsweep for the reverse-cone megaphone muffler for even more ground clearance. Partial heat shields are included and that megaphone muffler features a removable baffle and end cap. Read More
