Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Rally

Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Rally Riders

In 1987, more than two thousand motorcycle enthusiasts from the Vietnam Veterans Motorcycle Club, joined the founder, Corporal Ray Manzo at the Capitol Building in Washington DC to host an exciting motorcycle event dedicated to acknowledge war heroes. The event was named Rolling Thunder I.

Spring Break in Daytona Beach

It was Spring Break in Daytona Beach Florida. I was sweet 16 with a bunch of girls from Windsor, Ontario, Canada! We were out for a good time.

The Mad Bastard Scooter Rally

Mad Bastard Scooter Rally

The Mad Bastard Scooter Rally is like your crazy ex: You'll call it foul names, find yourself caught up with it in situations you'll regret in the morning, and no matter what you do to protect yourself this rally will be a pain in the butt.

MAC Rally of Hope

Canada, the world’s second largest country, spans six timezones and thousands of kilometres. From Rockie Mountains to Prairies, Borreal Plains to Mixwood Greenbelt, Ocean to Ocean, who wouldn’t want to cross Canada on a motorcycle?

This year the rally has riders travelling across Canada with their sights set on raising over $100,000, all while exploring the great white north on their iron steeds.

Let's be honest with ourselves and just admit that when it comes to art most of us are clueless. I can admit to that. I walked into Studio Cycle Group and a stack of flyers for a motorcycle photography exhibit called Motorcycle Culture & Celebrity Builders caught my eye. The black and white images on the flyer lived up to the title. Indian Larry and the Americana bike culture were well represented.

How do you turn 6,000 into 60,000? Ask residents of Port Dover, Ontario, a small community on the north shore of Lake Erie. Every Friday the 13th Port Dover is filled with over 50,000 motorcyclists. This year marked the 30th anniversary of the event which first began in 1981 to tune of a group of a little over 20 friends having fun while the Rolling Stones sang "Start Me Up" over the radio.
