Have you ever had one of those rides you do every year, for many years running, and it never rains that day? Well for us, one of them has been the “Ride for Kids,” benefiting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. We have been a part of this wonderful event for over 10 years and never seen a drop of rain. It’s like God told Mother Nature: “You can’t rain on this day!”

Sunday September the 11th, 2016 started out as the most beautiful day to go for a ride. Well over 200 motorcycles rolled into the American Legion Post #171 on 1st Ave. North in Birmingham, Alabama, where everyone was so excited about doing this ride and coming out to show their support and respect for the lives lost on September the 11th 2001, and also for the first responders.

On Saturday, August 13, 2016, after leaving a memorial ride we had been on earlier, we headed over to the Birmingham, Alabama chapter of the Veteran’s Brotherhood for Chow Call.

It was such a beautiful day as we rolled up for the 10th year memorial ride for one of the sweetest, most loved men we have had the honor of knowing and calling a friend. For 10 years now, Larry “Mad Dog” Rogers has been a VERY missed man.

The weekend of June 11-12, 2016 saw the return of the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship, Round 6 of the Honda Superbike Showdown to Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama.

On Saturday, April 23, 2016, the Veterans Brotherhood and chapter “Prez” Charlie, in Birmingham, Alabama played host to the Blessing of the Bikes performed by and benefiting the “Bond Slaves.”

We’ve brought you several weddings in the past, to share with those who may have missed it; none were quite as close to our hearts as this one, as it was ours!

On Saturday, April 16, 2016, the F.A.I.T.H Riders Motorcycle Ministry of Cedar Grove Baptist Church hosted the 5th Annual Lyla ride.

October signals the start of fall; the time changes, Halloween and the biggest most exciting thing to happen in the southeast pertaining to the motorcycle community. I say the southeast, but it’s a pretty big deal for people from all over the country and from a few other countries as well, I’m talking about the Vintage Festival at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama, which takes place October 9-11.

The Burkett Center is part of the Jefferson County School system and yet they are probably the least known. They have a far greater reach than that of the other schools in that it accepts students from ALL around the Jefferson County School system area and sadly, may be the least funded. Without a doubt, it has to be the cleanest, best smelling school.
