It was shortly after the open mic incident and during the MLK M5 campaign to raise funds for Dr. King's memorial in Washington, DC that I begin having conversations with Rev. Jesse L. Jackson about the prospect of working with the motorcycle community. Jackson declined the invitation to participate in the MLK M5 campaign preferring to "concentrate on the living."
The concept of Riders United to Serve…Continue

I was talking with a friend. She began asking questions. What's your birth date? What time were you born?
The first thing that came to my mind is, "I am an Aquarius". So that was my immediate answer withholding the lyrics from "Float On"" - it was tempting. I know that was not the question. So I let her speak on to learn why she asked. "Everybody knows the time and day they were born", She said.
I was born February 17, 1965 at 1:37am. My mother was born…Continue

As I reflect on Dr. King's legacy, I am especially grateful for the opportunity to connect with you through motorcycling and from it connect with Dr. King's legacy through our work.
