Well folks, for better or worse the time has finally come to convert the Biker Law Blog to a new software platform.
We have been working on moving this site to the new platform for over a month. That is why you have not seen many articles from me in the last month.
The conversion has been a nightmare. Getting the hundreds of articles, and thousands of user comments to the new system on a test domain has not been easy.
Once the conversion is done, there will literally be almost a thousand URL redirects that have …
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

RockTheGear.org , which promotes gearing up while riding, has relaunched. The Roadrash Queen Brittany Morrow has relaunched the website that not only encourages ATTGATT, but shares news about the latest motorcycle gear and protective gear technology.
After a crash while she was a passenger on a sportbike, Morrow had to receive skin grafts on more than 50 percent of her body because she had been wearing no gear. Having learned a painful lesson, she has been an advocate for always wearing a full gear and started RockTheGear.org in 2008 with funding from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.
Morrow said, "I'm not … [Link]
Harley-Davidson SuperLow 1200T Harley-Davidson is at it again. Fresh off the unveiling of the new Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 and the launch of Project RUSHMORE, the company unleashed today two new motorcycles that expand its diverse line-up of street bikes, and put more models for more riders on the showroom floor of each Harley-Davidson dealer.

Here is a video I made of a ride around my home town. I fashioned a home made camera mount on to the Goldwing and bolted down my cheesy little digital camera. Maybe not the greatest of cinema but not bad for my first effort at motorcycle ride video.
Enjoy the ride.
Only had time for five day run this year to test out the new bike, so Jane and Mike from Castor plus myself decided to challenge the Kaslo-Nakusp Highway.

It's time to move on!
I've been blogging daily here on Ride It Like You Stole It for over six years now, and it's been a good run, but the time has come.
This decision has been made much easier over the past two days, as more than half of my images taken over the past ten years, and shared on this blog, are no longer accessible since Google/Blogger made a change to their image hosting internals; I’m told the images are gone to the bit bucket and unrecoverable. Of course, I have the original images, just not the … [Link]
If , One of those timeless poems I enjoy so much, written by Rudyard Kipling, is an amazingly insightful poem on the attributes of what makes a man a man.
Becoming a man isn’t just one event, but rather a series of attributes developed over a lifetime. If only more men desired to obtain these characteristics, the world would be a much better place.

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
