Society is going to Hell! Really, what does it mean when common streetwalkers—or ho’s—turn into streetriders, chauffeured around by their pimps? Even the independent ho’s are brazen enough to hit the streets, followed by would-be pimps.
What it all means is, that Saturday August 27, 2011, was the 3rd Annual Pimp & Ho Run through Denver.
The Firehouse tavern in Thornton was rockin’ on August 21st when the north metro watering hole hosted the 2nd Annual Bearman Classic—aka Bear’s run. More than 300 people turned out to celebrate the life of our friend Bear by going for a little ride, and raise a few bucks for the Kemp Foundation…an organization that hosts innovative programs to treat abused children (from birth to age 18), train professionals and research treatment methods to help and heal children.
Sometimes, you need a little help from your friends.
When Mike Martinez from McCarthy’s Sports Bar and Grill in Aurora, Colorado, wanted to put on a benefit poker run, he wasn’t entirely sure how to make it happen successfully. So, rather than getting a headache trying to figure it all out, he went directly to Greg and Diane Isom of G&D Leathers for help on how to put it on.
There was lots of pretty steel in the parking lot at Sun Harley in Thornton the evening of August 26. And none of it was for sale.
It was the 7th Annual Sun Harley-Davidson Ride-In Bike Show that filled the parking lot and kept things hopping until after 8pm.
Some 50 motorcycles of all makes, models, and styles—from polished stock, to highly customized--filled half the parking lot, waiting for fan inspection and judges review. With custom trophies in four classes and best of show being handed out, pride and bragging rights were on the line.
Life was certainly worth living July 23rd, and it was evidently worth giving, too.
A capacity crowd filled Cactus Jacks Saloon in Evergreen, Colorado, for the 2nd Annual Give For Life FEST, which benefits Start talking Network, and they were in a generous mood after a day of riding—six mountain passes in six hours is enough to put any biker in a good frame of mind.

Generous, fun-loving, hard-riding bikers made it ten years in a row to ride hard and party all night to benefit Wilderness On Wheels in Colorado.
That’s the official story, and they’re sticking to it.
The reality was, of course, that it didn’t take much convincing to get more than 120 people to mount up and spend the day on a 260-mile ride/poker run through the Central Rockies en route to what is becoming a must-do party at the foot of Kenosha Pass at the Wilderness On Wheels campground. Ride all day, party into the night—what’s to convince?
Make no mistake; it was hot in Lakewood, Colorado, on July 24, 2011. Then, it got a little hotter when the 13th Annual Dino’s Custom Cycles Customer Appreciation Party got started.
With an outstanding spread of roast pig, every imaginable side dish and trimming, coupled with a steady supply of cold drinks and a seemingly uninterruptable flow of cold beer, the heat of the day was happily tolerated by the 500 or so people who stopped by during the day. A fine collection of show bikes was on display, and a solid soundtrack laid down by the band made for the solid core of a good party.
An 80-mile putt is better than sitting at home, but it might be a little on the boring side for some riders, but it’s just right for a few ladies working on their riding skills.
With the 2011 riding season in full swing, the ladies of the Mountain Shadow Riders, Colorado’s Chapter of Women on Wheels, decided it was time to spend a little time helping some of their members become better motorcycle riders. So, the Colorado springs-based riding association held a group ride designed for beginners on July 23, 2011.
Sometimes, ya just gotta have fun.
Saturday, July 23 was the 3rd Annual Boyd’s Fun Run; finally a ride just for the fun with no purpose, no charity, just plain old fun. This is what motorcycle riding is all about, the wind in the face, the summer sun beating down from above, and the enjoyment of the beautiful Colorado scenery, and of course the partying.
The best-kept biker secret in Denver is slowly gaining recognition as the place to be on Friday nights.
That place is Ari’s Tavern at 5686 Pecos Street.
Biker owned and operated, Ari’s launched its own version of bike night Fridays last month, but to be honest, every night is bike night at Ari’s.
