July is a busy month for our readers. Riders try to get their rides in, vacations with families scheduled, and prepare for Sturgis in August. We are halfway into our riding season and our community has been hit with an overwhelming number of accidents and fatalities.

The Randy Run for Fallen Bikers is hosting their 12th Annual Poker Ride and there is no better non-profit out there than the Randy Run. Please see the Randy Run page for more information on their upcoming ride.


Since this is our first July issue of Colorado Rider News, we are designating this Value Month. You will find coupons from a variety of dealerships, biker business and restaurants geared to save you money on things that you might need. We hope to make this a regular value page in our monthly publication. Colorado Rider News will always be about the rider.

Dirty Dogs Roadhouse

Colorado Riders have a new home in Sturgis and as a regular in South Dakota every August, I couldn’t be more thrilled to have our own place to hang out and meet up with our friends from Colorado. Dirty Dogs Roadhouse is NOW IN STURGIS and be sure to check out the new additions at the Golden location. On July 4th Dirty Dogs will be premiering their new entertainment stage, be sure to visit come by and give the owners a thumbs up on their continued improvements!

New Features

We would also like to thank Ashlee Crook from Aflac and Susan Dane from C.O.R.D as new regular writers for Colorado Rider News. While we want you to enjoy our publication, we also hope that riders will become more informed as to what you can do to make your ride a little safer out there.

As always, please let us know what’s on your mind. Whatever you ride, Colorado Rider News wants to talk about what’s important to you. Send me an email with your suggestions: info@ ColoradoRiderNews.com or feel free to make comments on our website!

No matter what, RIDE SAFE OUT THERE!
