  Everyone has been anxious to get out and about and do some really fun stuff, and what better really fun stuff is there in this heat than a Raft Race, you're outside, plenty of space around you and WATER to float in to cool off!

  This event has been taking place on the river in memory of one of the fallen Saints brother, "LL" for 21 years now and it's definitely something that most of the bikers around northern Alabama look forward to every year. People come on Friday and just camp out and make a full weekend getaway out of it.

Saints MC of Cullman, Al. 4th Annual Miracle League Ride

July 1, 2020

  We've all been experiencing a little bit of "cabin fever" with the Covid-19 shut down, but now things are slowly starting to re-open, people are coming out of hibernation and some of the rides that had to be rescheduled are starting to take place, still others that unfortunately just had to be canceled for this year.  

  On Saturday, June the 13th, one of the more fortunate rides that were able to reschedule was the Saints MC of Cullman Alabama Miracle League Ride. Between them and the Friends of the Miracle League, they were able to pull together a pretty big ride for the riders to get back in the groove on, also a pretty important ride as the biker community all rally together for those amazing athletes from the Miracle League.

Ride to Honor Lt. Stephen Williams

July 1, 2020

  The country has come to a screeching halt for the past several months due to the Covid-19, which has been bad enough on this country and the people who live in it, it's going to take a while for everyone to recover, but now we are having to recover from riots and protests that have disrupted that whole recovery process and added a whole new recovery process, some businesses won't even be able to recover from the destruction of their livelihoods and some lives won't even have that opportunity.

  Some people still don't get it, but ALL lives are important....ALL LIVES MATTER! And there are those that would like to see this as a "Lawless-Godless" Country! That's not somewhere I want to live. 

  The police in this country put their lives on the line to protect and serve us all, their families know that every time they walk out the door, there's a chance they may not be coming back.

June 2, 2020

We've been falling a little short on finding events, rides etc to cover, so we've enlisted the help of some of our friends to share some of their adventures with us. This article is one of those adventures, which turns out are a culmination of a few adventures. I asked our friend, Christopher Litteral with the Alabama Law Tigers to share some pictures from a day trip he told me about, well come to find out, he had been doing a few little day trips with friends and family. The pictures peaked my interest, so I asked him to give me a little article to go with it, since the article sounds a little like what most bikers are probably feeling, I decided to share it with all of you, along with the awesome pictures that will surely make you want to go find these places, I know I do!

5 Most Scenic Motorcycle Tours in The World By: Jordan Russell @ RoadRacerz.com

May 1, 2020

One of the best things about being a biker is that our passion opens up opportunities that the poor sad saps stuck behind car steering wheels never get.

Sure, it’s nice renting a car in the south of France and driving around some vineyards but nice is boring. Try rocking up in Kyrgyzstan or Vietnam and renting a nice family hatchback. Good luck to you buddy!

Nope, some countries and some roads either require heavy-duty off-road vehicles or something more nimble, like a motorbike. Below are five of the most scenic motorcycle tours you can do anyway in the world!

January always brings the only motorcycle show that Atlanta sees all year and, although having attended for more than a few of these of the years, it’s always good to catch up with old friends in a motorcycle atmosphere and this year did and did not disappoint.

August 30, 2019

’67 Triumph 500 tracker:  Ray Sterns’ knock-out beautiful 1967 Triumph T100 Tracker was voted best competition bike in the show.  Winners were all people’s choice on votes by those in attendance.

The British Biker Cooperative (BBC) www.britishbiker.net/ is headquartered in the ancestral home of Harley-Davidson, but it is Limey bikes they love above all others.

For 39 years, the BBC faithful have been having an annual Rally and Bike Show, but the past twenty in a row have been held at Blue River, Wisconsin’s spectacular Eagle Cave Resort www.eaglecave.net.

It’s no wonder—the Eagle Cave Resort is high on a ridge over the Lower Wisconsin River valley, smack-dab in the midst of some of the most beautiful, technical, well-paved back roads for cruising in the world. Small towns, friendly folks, and a well-run event combine to make the BBC Rally and Ride-in Show one event that many people look forward to every July. While the BBC requires that a person own a British-brand bike, the Rally and Bike Show welcome riders of any brand; even folks who don’t ride at all!

5th Annual “Jack Aces Car & Bike Show Photos and Article By: Heidi Parker

August 30, 2019

It may seem unusual for a Motorcycle Riding Club and Law Enforcement to join forces for the community good. But that is exactly what brought hundreds of people out to the 5th Annual Jack Aces RC & Branham Accessories Bike & Car Show in Cullman, Alabama. Saturday, August 10th was an extremely hot day at the Festhalle Farmers Market but that didn’t slow the crowds from showing up to view some spectacular custom bikes and antique cars and trucks. The cause for the day was Cullman Police Department Shop with A Cop. This Charity gives Christmas gifts to children who wouldn’t be able to have Christmas. On the day of the event (Shop with a Cop), officers and volunteers ride with kids to shop for Christmas gifts on their lists. The kids are then provided a delicious lunch. The entire experience builds the positive bond between Law Enforcement and the children.
