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!

Triumph Motorcycles America has recalled 1,186 of its 2012-2013 Tiger Explorer and Explorer XC motorcycles due to incorrect certification label information.
Triumph says the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating data on the label was incorrect, causing the Tiger motorcycles to fail to comply with requirements of Part 567, “Certification.”
Triumph says the incorrect label could cause the operator to overload the motorcycle which may result in handling issues and/or tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash. Triumph will notify owners and replace the labels with corrected GVWR data, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. … [Link]
Biker gang halts traffic on California I-10 freeway for marriage proposal, angers state highway patrol
As reported by New York Daily News:
Hundreds of bikers blocked traffic on a major California freeway so that a member of their crew could propose to his girlfriend. But cops are less than thrilled for the happy couple, and now the pair could be facing criminal charges.
YouTube videos of the stunt showed a pack of hundreds of bikers slowing to a crawl on the I-10 freeway near West Covina, halting traffic in their wake. The groom to-be, identified as Hector Martinez, 24, kicked off the impromptu proposal by spinning his back tire, which was custom crafted to emit … [Link]

#India #Safety #Ads – Hmmm.. interesting. Here's a public service announcement coming from India, trying to keep riders and drivers focused on the road. They've got several ads, cars and motorcycle, and in the nicely-done graphics, they show what the driver is thinking.
"Obviously" the motorcycle rider is thinking about his Girlfriend, while the car drivers are thinking about the Boss and the Husband…..
It's true, that especially when riding a motorcycle, better keep 100% of your focus on the road and not let you mind wander off.

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 keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
