LAB-91-Outlaw Chronicles: Hell's Angels | History Channel Series & George Christie |A Review By Bikers

Official Website: http://www.lawabidingbiker.com Podcast-The main topic of this episode is a discussion and our thought on the recent History Channel's "Outlaw Chronicles: Hell's Angels" series. This is for entertainment purposes only and in no way do we support any sort of illegal behaviors or activities by any motorcycle clubs. This story seems to be very one sided and it is based on ex-member George Christie Jr's recollection of events. There seems to be no verification by any other sources about some of his recollections.  Christie is said to be the longest serving President the club has ever had. He was heading up the Ventura, CA chapter when he left the club and has been ordered to have no contact with existing club members. Based on Christie's website and other activities on social media it appears he is trying to go full steam ahead to cash in on his experiences.  Listen in as we discuss the series and give our take on things. It is a great conversation we had. Other Topics: We also have special guest Matt Passalacqua via Skype from California who just attended the 21st Annual Street Vibrations Rally. He gives good insight into this event and wether or not bikers should attend. Matt also recently traded in his metric bike and purchased a Harley Davidson. He tells all about his new ride and his experiences.

LAB-160-Carrying a Firearm While Riding Motorcycles-Bikers & Handguns | What you need to know

Official website: http://www.lawabidingbiker.com Podcast-This episode was a direct result of Patreon Member Russell Roberts. He gave me the topic idea some time ago and he happened to be in town, so we grabbed the mics and spit this episode for you. Lurch was also in the studio and weighed in. Russell Roberts is like many law abiding bikers out there and exercises his 2nd Amendment Rights to carry a firearm while riding his motorcycle when he legally can. He wants to follow the rules, but that can be confusing, especially when traveling across State lines. Different States have different rules. Some States have reciprocity agreements and may recognize another State's concealed carry permit. Other States don't recognize any permit except their own. In some States, you can open carry and in others, you can't. It gets just plain confusing for most. Lurch and I are full-time Law Enforcement Officers and can carry across all State lines and in places others can't. We forget all the rules regular citizens have to try and navigate.  This is why it was great to have Russell in the studio to give the perspective of a regular citizen and what he's learned. He gives some great advice and some great resources for bikers who want to carry a concealed weapon (see below resources).  You really must listen to this entire episode if you are a motorcycle enthusiast and also exercise your right to carry a concealed firearm.   SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE!

LAB-135-Mayans Motorcycle Club (MC)-Sons of Anarchy Spinoff Show on FX

Official Website: http://www.lawabidingbiker.com Podcast-In this episode Chewy, Lurch, and I tell you everything we have learned about the new Sons of Anarchy spinoff pilot that has been ordered by FX called the Mayans MC that will start shooting in March 2017.  The Mayans MC show is officially happening, according to FX. This is no longer a rumor, it's an official series on the network's schedule. Sons Of Anarchy aired its finale in 2014 and many of us have longed for a spinoff series. SOA was the highest-rated ongoing drama series in FX history. We hope some of that greatness can spill over into this new show. Production on the pilot is set to begin in March and will be set in a post Jax Teller world. The show is said to follow EZ Reyes, a Mayan prospect, who will struggle with his desire for vengeance against the local cartel and his need for the women in his life to respect him. The show is set on the Mexi/Cali border. The Mayans, a Latino MC, controlled Northern, CA and all of Nevada during the SOA series. Emilio Rivera played the role of the President of Mayans Oakland Chapter in the SOA Series. It hasn't been confirmed that he's reprising his role as Marcus Alvarez, the president of Mayans MC, but his social networks have let fans know that he is involved with the show in some fashion. Both he and Sutter have posted numerous photos of themselves, the Mayans, and teases about the show. It seems Charlie Hunnam, who played Jax Teller, in the original SOA series will not be involved in the Mayan's MC show at all. The show will be directed by “Sons” creator Kurt Sutter from a script from Sutter and Elgin James. Sutter will serve as executive producer, with James as co-executive producer.  We think between these two individuals we should get a very creative and interesting show. Mayans MC will most likely take the Tuesday night slot that was previously held by Sons Of Anarchy. While an official premiere date hasn't been released by the FX network or Kurt Sutter, the show is expected to debut in Fall 2017. Mayans MC will most likely take the Tuesday night slot that was previously held by Sons Of Anarchy. There is much speculation on the exact story line of the show. Will we see Sons of Anarchy club members appear in the series? Or will they not integrate SOA at all? The show may go completely in its own direction. You must listen in to this episode to get our predictions, insight, and opinions.  New Free Video:  Video-How To Replace a Harley Primary Drive Auto Chain Tensioner | Complete Guide New Patrons: Bobby Stokes of Dallas, Georgia Tony Peterson of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania Chad Wilcox of Arvada, CO If you appreciate the content we put out and want to make sure it keeps on coming your way then become a Patron too!

LAB-123-Best GoPro & Action Cameras for Motorcycles-Best Mounting Positions | What You Need to Know

Official Website: http://www.lawabidingbiker.com Podcast-In this episode I was fortunate to have Law Abiding Biker Patron Member Russell Roberts in the studio. He is an awesome photographer and does video too. He has much experience with using and mounting GoPro action cameras to motorcycles. LawDog was also on a mic and as a beginner had a ton of great questions to ask Russell and I. I think he asked questions many of you out there want to know and how to get started from the ground up. We reveal how you Bikaholics can get started with action cameras when out riding your motorcycle. Of course, we use high-end camera, audio gear and lighting here at Law Abiding Biker Media for many projects. But, we also utilize GoPro cameras to capture footage depending on the particular project. I do all my moto biker vlogs with GoPros and iPhones.  You can see our free videos on our YouTube Channel. Of course, we also have our very popular for purchase videos. We have tested many different GoPro mounts and motorcycle mounting positions over time and we reveal it all to you! If you are thinking of getting started with action cameras on your motorcycle then you'll definitely need to take a listen. Russell Roberts can tell you, and I agree, that the Biker Gripper GoPro Motorcycle Mounts are the best in the world. That is our #1 go to GoPro motorcycle mount.  Good luck using the cheap plastic GoPro "bar mount" to attach your camera to your motorcycle. They break after several uses and you'll get unwanted vibrations in your footage. We talk about these mounts and more. We also talk about mounting your GoPro to your motorcycle helmet, which I often do during moto biker vlogs. It can give a great rider perspective. There are mics and Yakima Rive Canyon Biker Motorcycle attachments you'll need to talk into your GoPro while riding down the road. I talk about the equipment I use and list affiliate links to the exact items I use below.  Many times I'm asked what GoPro settings I use to record video. Of course, that depends on the exact look I want, but I can say a good starting point for most bikers would be to record at 1080p and 60fps (frames per second).  I am not a fan of recording at 4K right now, due to the massive file sizes and management of those files. And the fact that most viewers will never see it in 4k anyways. I am also asked what software I currently use to edit my videos. I use Final Cut Pro X on my Mac for most of my video editing with many purchased add-ons. Rusell and I also use Adobe Premiere, which can be used on MAC or PC.  If you are not doing advanced things then for most iMovie, which comes free on Mac's, works just fine.  GoPro also has free desktop editing software. There are also free programs for PC too, but I don't use PC's so you'll have to see what's available. Last, we compare other action cameras on the market for you. We compare GoPro to those cams and give you our opinions on the many choices out there. You'll also need a good quality quiet helmet if you want to moto vlog. I use a Schuberth C3 Pro helmet to cut down on any wind noise. Adding a wind-screen of sorts to the mic can also cut down on wind noise. I'm also behind a fairing most the time on my Harley Street Glide and that helps a ton. These are all things you'll need to consider and testing will be key to see what works best for your needs.  I don't currently use any GoPro session models, but Russell Roberts does. He gives his insight and the pros and cons of the session vs. the full-size GoPro cams in this episode.

LAB-57-Should I Join a Traditional Type Motorcycle Club? Are There Benefits?

OFFICIAL WEBSITE ==> http://www.lawabidingbiker.com We would love to hear from you! Get involved now. Call the listener hotline: (509) 731-3548 Leave a computer voicemail: http://www.lawabidingbiker.com/voicemail General Contact: http://www.lawabidingbiker.com/contact PODCAST & BLOG-So, have you ever wondered whether you should join an organized type motorcycle club? Or should you just ride and hang out with friends without being an organized club? From much experience, I can tell you, joining a motorcycle club is certainly not for everyone. I encourage every biker/motorcyclist to think heavily before getting involved with a club. In this podcast episode we play a voicemail a listener left for us. It begs the question, are there benefits to starting or joining a traditional organized motorcycle club? We break this down and get into depth on the pros and cons of joining or starting a biker club, so put your helmet on and hang on for this one. The first thing many think is why would I want to join a club and have to follow all the bylaws and rules when I can just hang out and ride with guys I like? If this is your thought, then maybe you are not ready to join or start a club yet and are exploring. Many are curious if there are any benefits to being involved with an organized motorcycle club? I am the President of the Sworn Few MC and involved in this very traditional organized motorcycle club for many reasons, which I will discuss a bit later. I do know groups that just ride together without being organized in a traditional type club sense. It is up to each individual on how they want to roll and what they are expecting or looking for. Let's first discuss some major differences between a true motorcycle club, a riding club, and a riding group. A traditional motorcycle club is one in which the members wear a leather vest or "cut" bearing a separated 3 piece patch on the back. The top rocker patch is the club name, the center patch is their logo, and the bottom rocker is the city, area, or state they ride in. They follow traditional type bylaws and have a definite chain of command to follow and elected club officers. They have regular meetings and often required attendance for meetings and/or events. Riding clubs vary a lot, but typically have some sort of structure like a motorcycle club. In a riding club the members don't wear the 3 piece patch. Some riding clubs don't wear leather vests at all. If they do wear a leather vest they may have a 1 or 2 piece patch on the back. They usually have a chain of command and appointed or elected club officers. The Harley Owners Group (HOG) is a familiar example of a riding club. A riding group has little to no structure. They likely are just a group of riders that may share some similar interests. They may have clothing items such as T-shirts or hats instead of a leather vest and patch. They likely don't have elected or appointed officers nor a chain of command.

Check out our COMPLETE REVIEW Check out these awesome cell phone mounts No additional cost to your, but we get a small commission for each sale. Because of television, media, and the actions of the minority (less than 1%) biker criminal element people are overly interested in motorcycle clubs. Always remember that 99% of motorcyclists/bikers are hard working law abiding people. Other people and even other motorcyclists may ask, why not just ride together? What's the point of joining a club and wearing a patch? To quickly put things into perspective for these individuals I ask a few simple questions. Why are people in organized church groups? Why are people in tennis clubs, or golf clubs? Why are boys in Boy Scouts and girls in Girl Scouts? Certainly Boy Scouts could just get together and camp or hike. Why do they have to have uniforms, a structure, wear status patches, and have a chain of command? Why do sports teams wear uniforms and have a leader (coach)? Because, it is basic human nature to want to earn the right and belong to something we consider special and elite. Something special to share with like minded individuals. This often takes the form of wearing something that represents that club or group. Look all around you and you will see special interest groups and clubs everywhere. So, lay off motorcycle clubs already and move on. Here are a few things that a club or organization may offer aside from just "getting together". A sense of pride Teamwork Brotherhood Chain of command Organization of the team/club/group Sense of order Sense of achievement A means to advance your mission or purpose Let's talk specifically about why motorcyclists/bikers may join a club instead of just "getting together." Many join motorcycle clubs because the club offers something they're wanting such as brotherhood. Some may not have a family and will turn to a tight brotherhood as their family. That biker will be given a place within the club structure just as he would in a true family setting. He will be taken care of by his club when he calls upon them. It gives individuals a sense of structure and order, which many desire. For those motorcycle clubs that you have to work hard to gain full membership and be awarded the 3 piece patch, there is a sense of a great achievement, which is a basic human need. It is a very proud moment to be accepted into a club. Further, they will have many to call upon to go riding, which should be their first passion. They may want to help their community and contribute to a larger goal. Many clubs are heavily into fundraising and a club structure is usually warranted to manage these activities. Of course criminal type biker clubs (outlaw motorcycle gangs) are in it for other illegal purposes and to further their activities with like-minded individuals. There are many different types of clubs that motorcyclists/bikers find support in. There are many Christian motorcycle clubs for those that also ride. There are sober riding clubs for recovering alcoholics. There are biker clubs for those who got out of jail or are recovering from drug use. The list goes on and on. A biker club environment gives individuals a support group, purpose, and something to hang on to. Many motorcycle clubs are active or retired military personnel. These individuals have a very close brotherhood when active, overseas, or in combat. They have to completely rely on each other during these times and become accustomed to that brotherhood and total trust. They become used to daily structure and a chain of command. When they return to the civilian world they find that those things do not regularly exist, but they do inside many motorcycle clubs. They don't want to just "get together", but want that structure, brotherhood, and belonging they miss. So, here are many of the reasons I am involved in motorcycle clubs and helped establish the Sworn Few MC. You see, just because we work together does not mean officers all hang out together off duty. Just like other jobs, we don't necessarily care for everyone we work with. We remain vigilant while on duty and would protect and work with any of our own. However, when we clock out and head for our days off we want to get away from those persons and the job. We are forced to work with many, but in a motorcycle club we make the rules and decide who can join. Nobody else has any authority to tell us how to run our club and of course that is a feeling of satisfaction. We only want to hang out with true brothers and our restricted member motorcycle club gives us a perceived barrier of protection. Many know that it is extremely difficult to even try to get into our motorcycle club. The Sworn Few MC is very structured by design. We have a very clean look and patches can only be worn in a certain way, which gives us uniformity among the other clubs. We don't clutter our vests with miscellaneous patches and pins. All members where the same exact high quality leather vest. When we roll up to an event we all ride in a certain way and in a professional manner. All members must have a set riding proficiency. We are known within the community and have a good reputation. We take extreme pride in the way our club rolls and that gives us all pride and a sense of achievement. We work hard to maintain this, which brings us all closer together. As stated earlier, motorcycle clubs in general have gotten a bad rap. We roll the way we do to change the public's perception about motorcycle clubs. We do everything we can to let them know that 99% of bikers are good law abiding people. So, we are not just professional for the reputation of our club, but for all law abiding motorcycle clubs. We believe it is all our responsibilities to change public's perception. We are making sure the mystery of the 3 piece patch goes away. Law abiding biker clubs are growing faster than ever and that will continue.

No additional cost to you, but we get a small commission for each sale. We are involved in some fundraising and charity, but we don't let it rule our club. First and foremost we are about hard core riding and brotherhood. A big reason we became an actual club is because we were able to obtain a non-profit tax exempt status for fundraising. You could not do this without organizing and having a club structure. To be a non-profit you must have officers and regular meetings with notes. So, just "getting together" would not cut it. We have a very strict if not the most strict processes for obtaining full membership and we are proud of that. Nobody sneaks in the back door of the Sworn Few LEMC. Because of the very hard work, time, and dedication it takes to get into the club, brothers feel a huge sense of achievement that can never be taken away. We don't recruit and only the strongest of law enforcement bikers seek us out for possible membership. You won't find these sorts of things if you just "get together." Running these strict membership processes brings our brotherhood even closer together. We are all vigilant to make certain we get nothing but the highest quality of members. I will say that for many years some of us used to just ride together and were not in a club of any kind. We were brothers, but the pride that comes along with what we have established made us that much closer. Each of us earned our place, worked very hard, and bonded in the processes. We enjoy riding with our colors and letting all other biker clubs and the community know that we are always out there. Wearing that earned vest and 3 piece patch is something to be proud of and you can't get that feeling by just "riding together." In closing, as you can see a motorcycle club is no different from any other organized club, team, or group that are all around us. Humans have an inherent need to belong and bond with like-minded people. We just happen to ride a motorcycle instead of swing a golf club. There are many considerations to take into account before joining a club, but hopefully this will help you make your decision and answer your questions. There are an array of different motorcycle clubs out there and operate in completely different ways. Take your time and be cautions and educated before jumping into things. The most important thing is if a motorcycle club just sells its patches to you and you are granted instant membership then you will likely not enjoy any of the benefits you have just read about. That is not much different than just "getting together." Understand, I am not speaking badly about clubs that do that, but just something for you to consider. For many it is all they want and it works just fine. It all comes down to what you are looking for and your personal needs and wants. __________ CHECK US OUT AND SUBSCRIBE: Website: http://www.LawAbidingBiker.com Email & Voicemail: http://www.LawAbidingBiker.com/Contact Phone Hotline: 509-731-3548 Twitter: https://twitter.com/LawAbidingBiker Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lawabidingbiker YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/scrappy587 Google Plus Page: https://plus.google.com/b/104041070580228657262/+Lawabidingbiker587 Instagram: http://instagram.com/lawabidingbiker RSS: feed://www.LawAbidingBiker.com/feed iTunes Direct Link to Podcast:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/law-abiding-biker-podcast/id622424087 Stitcher Radio: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/law-abiding-biker-podcast TuneIn Radio: http://tunein.com/radio/Law-Abiding-Biker-p562288/

LAB-64-Iron Order Motorcycle Club-Official Podcast Interrogation-Part 1 of 2

OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://www.lawabidingbiker.com PODCAST-This is Part One of a two part interview with Ray "Izod" Lubesky of the Iron Order Motorcycle Club. Izod was one of the founding members of the Iron Order MC, one of the "first eight", and the International President for many years.  We dive deep into everything you need to know about this club. The Iron Order claims to be a law abiding club and I can find no credible evidence to the contrary. The Iron Order MC is not a Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club (LEMC) nor do they claim such. They do have law enforcement members along with many other walks of like. They don't claim criminal 1%er status and don't allow criminals in their club. Some in the law abiding biker world believe the Iron Order may be on the edge and have concerns about what they stand for and what they portray online. There are more risky images & activities online from this club compared to other law abiding biker clubs you see.  There are actual Facebook pages and other media that are dedicated to bashing the Iron Order MC and I don't see that with other law abiding biker clubs.  I ask the tough questions in this interview and Izod has some great answers that may just change your mind if you have any concerns. You will definitely want to listen in on both podcast episodes dedicated to this interview. You won't hear interviews like this on any other motorcycle/biker podcast out there. You've found the #1 listened to Biker Podcast in the world! The Iron Order is a very large international motorcycle club. Like all law abiding biker clubs should do, they refuse to follow the so called "Confederation of Clubs" (COC) unwritten rules, whom have no authority over free members of the motorcycling community. They have no authority over anyone unless you willfully let them control you. For the most part only the criminal biker community gives them any attention. Criminal bikers make up far less than 1% of all bikers/motorcyclists on the road. Because the Iron Order MC wears a three piece patch, is not an LE club, they are out there, they have many large club houses, and refuse to submit to ridiculous unwritten criminal biker code, they may draw extra attention from bashers in the criminal biker world that humorously think the motorcycling majority cares what they have to say. Don't forget, there are other large non LE clubs out there like the Iron Order in many ways. Don't ever be ruled by any unauthorized organization or body. Motorcycling is about freedom and that trumps on the very freedom of this great country and the open road. Part 2 of the interview (Episode #65) About the Iron Order MC (sent by Izod) The Iron Order MC was started by a few hardcore bikers in a garage on July 4, 2004. It is fitting that our club anniversary is celebrated on the same day as our great country's Independence Day since our club is totally independent and beholden to none, to follow our own destiny truly free from all other's rules and protocols. These bikers came from different backgrounds and walks of life. They had a desire to share brotherhood and socialize together as a group of men sharing a like mindset with an iron resolve to have a club of their own under no one's control or direction. That is how the IOMC was started and how it is today. This is the heritage of the IOMC. We refuse to be dictated to by anyone as to who we have as members, where we can have chapters, what we can wear, where we can go, or what we can do. We have learned many things about the MC world over the past years. We respect all clubs and support those that support us. We are independent and choose to mind our own business. We started that way and we continue that way. We run our club by the very same MC traditions established over 50 years ago by the motorcycle clubs. We are not 1%ers. We are not a HOG chapter or a riding club. We are a three piece patch MC. We have chapters in many states. We have a strong brotherhood between all chapters.

LAB-200-Motorcycle Riding Safety Tips & Dangers-From a Police Motorcycle Officer & Instructor

Official Website: http://www.dev.lawabidingbiker.com  In this podcast episode, I go into great detail of the dangers I see out on the road as a full-time Police Motorcycle Officer and Instructor. I see riders making so many common mistakes that unknowingly put their lives in danger. Unfortunately, I respond to many motorcycle collisions and it's never fun. Many times it's not the rider's fault, but had that rider practiced better defensive riding skills they would have avoided it. And yes, I understand that under some circumstances there is just simply nothing the motorcycle rider could have done to avoid a collision.  SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE In the studio on the mics were Lurch and special guest and Patron Member, Bob Dawson. Bob donated his time to paint the entire inside and outside of the Law Abiding Biker™ Studio and Shop when we were building it! Bob Dawson owns Dawson Custom Painting out of the Yakima, WA area.  Both Lurch and Bob weigh in on their experiences and things they do to stay safe when out riding.  I truly believe that if motorcycle riders would stop making many common mistakes that motorcycle collisions would be greatly reduced. Too many riders become complacent and make dangerous mistakes, don't practice, and are not prepared. Ask yourself, when is the last time you spent just 20 minutes practicing emergency breaking in a parking lot? This could save your life and it's an easy drill to set up.  CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! You need to listen in to this podcast episode, as it's much easier to verbally break down the things I've seen and to give you all the tips and tricks that will help you stay safe when riding your motorcycle. I will try to give a few of the highlights in this article, but again, the details are in the podcast episode.  Some more common dangerous things:  Following too closely Back off! Give yourself reaction time and the cars behind you time Don't ride with your feet on the highway pegs in the city with traffic. They are for the highway. Greatly reduces your reaction time to get your foot on the brake Cover your clutch in heavy traffic Be ready to emergency brake and shift down to brake and escape Slow at EVERY intersection even if it's a green light Expect a car to come through every time Head checks left and right upon approach Cover clutch and brakes Don't just ride through at full speed and expect traffic to stop Don't start on a green light right away. Wait a few seconds to avoid those other cars trying to beat the yellow/red light Don't ride in a driver's blind spot Back off or pass Tap your brake lever or pedal to flash your brake lights to get the attention of driver's behind you when slowing or preparing for a stop Or buy an aftermarket brake strobe modulator Be slow to stop/Following distance again gives you that ability to not have to stop suddenly Be cautious of traveling in the left lane in a city when two or more lanes are in the same direction as you are going Cars ahead in the left lane will stop and have to wait for oncoming cars to make a left turn. Cars will not expect this and everyone will brake quickly. Vehicles turning right from the right lane don't have to wait and just quickly turn off.  Again, the proper following distance will help you stop slowly and give cars behind you more time to see you and also stop Following distance.....hmmmmmm, this keeps coming up? Do it if you care about your life! Be extra careful when a line of cars are stopped in the opposite direction as you and they are backed up.  Look for gaps left in the traffic. Drivers will try to come out of parking lots through those gaps to get out and will not see you and have a blocked view from the traffic they are cutting through.  Very dangerous, so slow down and pay very close attention covering your clutch and brakes. Practice, practice, practice your emergency braking and other riding skills Take your motorcycle riding safety seriously Again, these are just a few highlights of what we discussed in this podcast episode.

LAB-181-Harley-Davidson Oil Change/Service at Dealership | What is actually done?

Official website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, we reveal to you exactly what is and is not done during a routine 1K or ongoing 5K oil change/service on your Harley-Davidson motorcycle at a dealership. Many Harley owners out there are misinformed and are led to believe that some 200 "secret" checks are done, but this is not the case and rather ridiculous if you think about it. We encourage you to do your own routine oil changes & services on your Harley in your own shop or garage. It is super easy and in our #1 best selling tutorial videos, we show you everything the dealership does and more for these routine services that they charge upwards of $400 for!  Harley Oil Change/Service Videos Available: Harley Davidson Oil Change, Service, & Safety Inspection-PRE-Milwaukee 8 Harley Milwaukee-Eight Routine Oil Change, Service, & Safety Inspection The price for these high definition tutorial videos is nothing really as they pay for themselves over and over again! No, changing the oil and servicing your own Harley DOES NOT VOID YOUR WARRANTY and it can't. You are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act and your dealership personnel will tell you so. You just need to save your product purchase receipts and sign the back of your owner's manual for the services you do! We here at Law Abiding Biker Media, Inc. service our Harley's ourselves of course. However, due to contracts and department practices, I am required to have my issued Police Harley-Davidson Electra Glide serviced at a dealership. Because of this, I learn a ton of actual real-world information that I can share with the community here.  SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE Please understand, I have nothing but the utmost respect for certified Harley mechanics and I have several that are friends. I gather real information from them to relate to you. I am in no way talking badly about those Harley mechanics or dealerships. I am just relating the facts so you can be more informed about what actually occurs on one of these routine Harley oil changes/services.  On my most recent oil change/service on my 2018 Police Harley Electra Glide with the Milwaukee-Eight motor, I spent time with mechanics while they serviced my bike. By doing so, I re-confirmed what I had learned years earlier. They do nothing more than what we show you in our Harley oil change/service tutorial videos. And, we actually show you a few additional things in those videos along with many tips and tricks.  You must understand that motorcycle and car dealerships alike have very specific protocols for servicing vehicles. That means if their service book says that a routine Harley oil change and service takes 3.5 hrs (and the book does say this) then that is what you will be billed for regardless if they get it done sooner. This is nothing new, but surprisingly many Harley and car owners alike do not know this.  No, the mechanics don't check every bolt and torque on your Harley as some out there believe. This would be absurd anyway. They may check the front and rear axle bolt torques as an example, but that would be all as they are more critical components. Much of what they check is visual and if there is no problem spotted then nothing is done further and it is checked off the list. An example would be visually checking oil, fuel lines, fluid levels, brake pads, belts, sprockets etc. In addition to visual inspections, much can be checked when the mechanic takes your Harley out for a test ride after the oil change. Lights, throttle, switches, shocks, and clutch are just a few. If the bike is running great and all feels to work well then nothing further is needed. I was provided with a .pdf inspection sheet that the mechanic prints out to make sure he/she checks the most important things. It is a list of about 40 things, many being visual inspections. It is nowhere near 200 items. Tire pressure, tread, brake pads, oil change, fluid levels, and filters are common things during a routine service of course. Again, we show you all this in our awesome tutorial videos.  Listen in to learn more as we go through each item that was checked or done at the dealership to my Police Harley when receiving a routine service and oil change. After you listen and view one of our Harley oil change/service videos you'll wonder why you ever paid that much money at a dealership. Plus, there's no better feeling than servicing and taking pride in your Harley.  New Free Video Mentioned: Install & Review-Ciro 3D Latitude LED Tail Light & License Plate Holder on Harley Davidson Sponsor-Ciro 3D CLICK HERE!

LAB-169-Cam Upgrades on Your Harley-Davidson & Stage Kits 101? What You Need to Know

Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com A Harley-Davidson cam upgrade on your engine can provide more power for certain RPM ranges, which is completely dependent on what style aftermarket cam you purchase. A more extreme cam can also make your bike run in a way that's not optimal for your type of riding. A cam upgrade after the original purchase of your Harley from a dealership will also likely void your factory and/or extended engine warranty.  Additionally, cams and installs can get rather costly. So, many considerations need to be made before you make a decision to upgrade your Harley cam. Note: We are not experts on Harley cam upgrades, but we are simply trying to relate general and basic knowledge to help the average everyday biker out there.  SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE With so many aftermarket Harley cams available and so much improper information in the spam filled online Harley forums, we wanted to record this podcast episode to help the average everyday biker out there decide and navigate through the smoke and mirrors, as to help all make an educated decision on whether or not to upgrade the cam on a Harley. We break it down Law Abiding Biker style! I had Oscar & Big Daddy on the mics with me and they are both well versed in Harley cam upgrades.  Don't worry, listen in and you'll see we break it down and don't get overly technical on this subject-just what you need to know. By installing a cam upgrade on your Harley,  you can increase horsepower or torque by essentially changing your valve timing. You'll be letting the exhaust out and fuel/air in at very specific times. By changing this timing, you can increase maximum torque in different ranges, such as low or high. It's all about the "grind" of your cam and that can get really technical. CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! Why doesn't Harley use better stock cams? A stock cam in your Harley provides a safe range and tries to do everything "okay" through all the ranges and it's EPA compliant. You'll see nothing great at the low or high end, but the bike will start well and run well for the average everyday rider out there. And, let's not forget that a very large portion of Harley-Davidson's income is from selling performance aftermarket parts and charging high labor rates to install such parts. They'd lose much money if they put a better stock cam in the motor at the factory. Question to ask yourself: Before a cam upgrade on your Harley,  you'll want to ask yourself-what model of Harley engine do you have and what kind of riding do you do? Maybe you're riding a bagger with a passenger and you want low-end torque to take off quicker up to a certain RPM? Or, maybe you'll choose more of a horsepower cam and would like horsepower to kick in at a higher mid-range RPM, so when you roll the throttle to pass a car it's there for you? Check out awesome motorcycle tutorial videos here! You'll also want to decide if you want a regular or high lift cam. With a high lift cam, you'll need to have a modified high flow head. You'll have to have polished intake and exhaust ports or even have the ports made bigger (ported). You'll have to replace things like stronger valve springs and larger valves and so on. This can get in depth and expensive quick. An aftermarket cam for your Harley can push your valves up farther or keep them open longer, creating different levels of torque and/or horsepower. A high lift cam will push the valve deeper into the cylinder and keep it open longer. A high lift cam will likely give your engine that "loping" sound at idle as you often hear in muscle cars. Basically, a low-end cam is about improving torque, while a high lift cam is about horsepower. You'll want to decide if you want a chain or gear driven cam. For more information on that subject, you'll want to listen to Podcast Episode #73. Your stock Harley cam is chain driven out of the factory. Generally speaking, gear driven cams for Harley are a bit more reliable long-term. Gear driven cams do whine a bit over the stock chain driven cams. Gear driven cam kits are a bit more expensive than chain and a little more is involved on the install as you'll have to measure crank run out with a dial gauge and make sure the cam is still true etc. What are the Harley stage kits? Harley basically has four different stage kits, such as stage one, stage two & so on. Basically, those kits are put together by Harley and the parts included in the kits work well together. By getting a Harley stage kit you don't have to spend a bunch of time researching and piecing things out. As the stage kits get higher in number the more parts and labor are involved. But, higher number stage kits are well beyond just getting a new cam. A stage one kit is basic air intake and exhaust all the way up to stage 4, which will be a large project such as air intake, exhaust, larger pistons, cam and more. This is a basic explanation and you should reference a Harley dealership or the HD website to get all the specifics for each stage kit. Other awesome aftermarket comparable stage kit: You should also consider the Vance & Hines 30+ Horspower Kit, which is an all-inclusive kit. We like this kit so much we brought it right to the Law Abiding Biker Store. The kit comes with the following items. - Oversized 450 Slip-ons (chrome or black) with Carbon Fiber End Caps (exclusive to 30+ HP Kit) - Carbon Fiber VO2 Air Intake Kit - Fuelpak FP3 with Raceshop Mapping - Power Dual Head Pipes (chrome or black) - 575 Camshaft Set - Adjustable Pushrods - Vance & Hines Inscribed black Timing Cover Check out the V&H 30+ Horsepower Kit & further details in Our Store Picking a Cam: Most reputable Harley cam manufacturers will have all the specifications for a particular grind cam listed on their website. You can look at things such as-what RPM range the cam is for? So, make sure you do a little research to make sure you're getting what you want. Understand, that with many basic shallow ramp or "mild" cams you can just install the cam and pushrods and be good to go. That is likely as far as an average everyday Harley rider needs to go. Getting into more aggressive high lift cams will add many additional issues and associated costs and may not be necessary. But, it's your bike, money, and time, so equip your Harley how you choose. You'll also want to consider a "bolt in" cam for ease of installation. These bolt-in cams fit right in with ease. The cam doesn't actually bolt-in, but that is just a phrase that means no other mods will be needed for fiment. Note: A cam upgrade for a Harley is the best bang for your buck to improve the performance of your Harley from stock. Tuning your Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) after a cam install: You'll need to re-map your EFI with a good quality aftermarket tuner after a cam install. We recommend the Vance & Hines FuelPak 3, which we use and sell in our store. You can tell V&H techs what cam and kit you installed and they can send a map to your smartphone that you can then upload into the FuelPak 3 and then flash your bike's ECM. Tip: Before buying an upgraded cam for your Harley, call your EFI tuner manufacturer and make sure they either have or will create a map for you. You may also consult your cam manufacturer and see if they have an EFI map.  Check out Podcast Episode #34 for a ton of great information on EFI tuners for Harley.

LAB-130-Should You Start or Idle Your Motorcycle During Cold Winter Weather?

Official Website: http://www.lawabidingbiker.com Podcast-In this episode we break down the old myth that you should go out during the winter every so often to start your motorcycle and let it idle for a bit to warm it up. Many think this will keep things lubricated and that it is good for the motor to do this. Heck, I used to do it because that's what my father always did with sitting cars. This particular subject matter came up in the Patron Only Private Facebook Group. If your not in this group you should consider it, because a ton of reliable information and discussions are in there. Many bikers can't ride during certain snow months and head out to the old garage, fire up their motorcycle, drink a beer, maybe have a cigar, and let their bike run for 15-20 minutes. They shut her down and head back into the house.  Is this a good practice? Now that I am more educated, I realize this is actually a bad thing to do to your motorcycle's engine or any engine for that matter. You're better off just letting your motorcycle sit unless you are actually going to ride it for a fair distance. You see, idling your motorcycle in the cold not only wastes fuel, but it's also stripping oil from critical components that help your engine run, namely the cylinders and pistons. Normally, your motorcycle engine runs on a mixture of air and vaporized fuel. When that mixture enters a cylinder, a piston compresses it, which generates a combustion event, powering the engine. New Patrons: Tony Falvo of Coatesville, Pennsylvania Roy Skaggs David Duffey of Jackson, Tennessee If you appreciate the content we put out and want to make sure it keeps on coming your way then become a Patron too! There are benefits and there is no risk. You can also support us via a flat donation: When it's cold outside the gasoline is less likely to evaporate. Your motorcycle purposely runs "rich" and compensates for this initially by adding more gasoline to the air-vapor mixture. That's the problem,  you're actually putting extra fuel into the combustion chamber to make it burn and some of it can get onto the cylinder walls. Gasoline is a great solvent and it can actually wash oil off the walls if you run your motor in those cold idle conditions for an extended period of time. Over time, that can have a detrimental effect on the lubrication and life of things like piston rings and cylinder liners.  This can have a serious effect on the overall operating life of your engine. Myth busted; idling your motorcycle does not prolong the life of your engine; rather it shortens it. Your motorcycle doesn't run rich the entire winter. It only happens when the gasoline is cold. Once your engine warms up to about 40 degrees Fahrenheit, the car transfers to normal fuel-consumption rates. You might think by idling your motorcycle, you're warming it up, which will prevent this problem. Idling doesn't really get the engine up to temperature, and until that happens the engine control module (ECM) on the engine is going to keep sending a rich-fuel mixture to the cylinders so that it can ensure that enough is evaporated for a consistent combustion event. The best and only real way to get your motorcycle engine's temperature up is to actually go out and ride! If you can't ride because of ice and snow, then just don't start your bike at at all. When you ride in those colder temperatures, letting your motor run for about thirty second to a minute is a good standard before you take off.  Once you take off, don't just immediately open up the throttle and rip on it. Ride gently for a bit to give it time to warm up or you'll put unnecessary stress on your engine.  It can take 5-15 minutes for your engine to warm up depending on the driving conditions. Also, because your motorcycle is going to run a bit rich before the engine reaches 40 degrees Fahrenheit, you're going to get lower gas mileage than usual. Definitely keep your motorcycle battery on a tender or it'll go bad! This is a great one! Click on the picture to check it out. (affiliate link/support us) Why the Myth? The myth started in an age when all motorcycle engines relied on carburetors. Then came the standard application of fuel injection. The main difference is that electronic fuel injection comes with a sensor that feeds the cylinders the right air-fuel mixture to generate a combustion event. Carburetor-run motorcycles lacked this important sensor. If your gasoline was too cold, your car wouldn't run rich, it would simply stall out. In those days, it was important to get the carburetor warm before driving. Those days are gone........ Another Private Patron Only Facebook Group Subject we covered: Oscar writes: Wanted to let you all know about my K&N filter problem so you can check yours out before the big Sturgis trips. Recently I found that my stage 1 K&N filter (aftermarket stage 1 kit 2013 Limited) looked like it had deformed. I reached my finger to the point where the intake met the filter and found an open air gap large enough to get my pinky into the intake chamber. I checked with our local service manager and one of our dealership mechanics and found it happens but is very uncommon. I checked the KN and went with the Harley filter for now because no one had a replacement. Check your filters, they should be tight against the intake shoulder. With mine I could literally pry it up off the intake without much force. We don't want to be riding through any large storms with a faulty filter. __________ CHECK US OUT AND SUBSCRIBE: Website: http://www.LawAbidingBiker.com Email & Voicemail: http://www.LawAbidingBiker.com/Contact Phone Hotline: 509-731-3548 Twitter: https://twitter.com/LawAbidingBiker Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lawabidingbiker YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/scrappy587 Google Plus Page: https://plus.google.com/b/104041070580228657262/+Lawabidingbiker587 Instagram: http://instagram.com/lawabidingbiker RSS: feed://www.LawAbidingBiker.com/feed iTunes Direct Link to Podcast:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/law-abiding-biker-podcast/id622424087 Stitcher Radio: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/law-abiding-biker-podcast TuneIn Radio: http://tunein.com/radio/Law-Abiding-Biker-p562288/

LAB-121-Milwaukee-Eight Motor | Harley Davidson | Gem or Junk? | A Complete Review & Guide

Official Website: http://www.lawabidingbiker.com Podcast-Hang on and make sure your helmet is on as we come at you with a ton of information. That's right, Oscar & I are on the mics discussing everything about the new Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight 107 ci motor! The articles on the internet are hit and miss at best. Oscar & I break it down from a real biker perspective and what it actually means for all of you Bikaholics out there! We have a real biker conversation.  Oscar has a ton of knowledge on the specs on this new motor and you'll definitely want to listen in. Then, you can make an educated decision about whether it's worth it for you to upgrade. New 2017 Harley touring models will be equipped with the Milwaukee-Eight 107 ci (1750 cc) motor.  The CVO models will now be equipped with a 114 ci (1870 cc) motor.The eight-valve motor was a complete redesign with new cases, cylinders, heads, and flywheel. This motor is a cooler and quieter motor from Harley-Davidson, which were several of their major goals in the redesign. Several days after recording this podcast I had the opportunity to spend some time with a crushed ice pearl colored 2017 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special with the Milwaukee-Eight 107 ci motor. I filmed the bike in detail and went over the specs and information for you. I then did a MotoVlog for you as I took her for a test ride. See the below very popular Harley Milwaukee-Eight videos I put on my YouTube Channel!  After listening to this podcast episode and watching those videos you'll be super informed on whether this Milwaukee-Eight motor is for you or not.

LAB-73-Harley Davidson Twin Cam Chain Tensioner Problem 1999-2006 | Are Other Years Affected?

Official Website: http://www.lawabidingbiker.com LAB-73-Harley Davidson Twin Cam Chain Tensioner Problem 1999-2006 | Are Other Years Affected? Podcast-In this episode we break down the issue of problems with pre 2006 Dyna’s & 1999-2006 spring loaded cam chain followers in Harley Davidson twin cam motors. The chain tensioning system in these motors uses plastic “shoes” riding on the cam chains that wear out. We here at Law Abiding Biker all agree that there is no real concern with the newer post 2006 motors and is limited to the years stated. Although we are pro Harley Davidson, this was a complete design failure and the company should have done a better job taking care of owners of the affected years in our opinion.  You really need to listen in to this podcast episode to get all the facts and information. Harley damaged cam chain tensioner Harley damaged cam chain tensioner What is happening on the affected years? The plastic spring loaded cam chain follower fails & it shreds plastic material that fouls the rotary gear oil pump cutting off oil flow to the engine. The problem is that many are experiencing failures at many different mileages, so it is hard to predict. Additionally, riders likely will not hear anything going wrong. The only way to check the status of your cam chain followers is to dig in and inspect them. If you are going to be in there for that then we suggest to just fix the problem permanently & we will tell you how. What did Harley do to fix the problem on the newer motors? On the 2007 and later motors, hydraulic cam chain followers are now used to get rid of the stiff spring that put too much pressure on the followers rubbing on the cam chain. Some believe that the problem still exists even with the new hydraulic cam chain followers, but we are not seeing that at all. Our opinion is that if you have an affected model that you take action as soon as you can and avoid the impending problem all together since you can't predict when it will happen. S&S Cycle Complete Gear Drive 510G Camshaft Kit S&S Cycle Complete Gear Drive 510G Camshaft Kit The Fix #1 (Our 1st Choice): Our suggestion is for you to get rid of the chain system entirely and switch to gear driven cams for the listed years. There are companies making aftermarket kits for this and without labor they cost around $750. The best thing is that you will get upgraded cams on top of the rest of the upgrade kit, thus more performance.  If you appreciate this Free content consider using our 2 Wheel Parts Supply Affiliate Link to purchase any of these kits (S&S Cycle Complete Gear Drive 510G Camshaft Kit) & help support us. Screamin' Eagle Hydraulic Cam Chain Tensioner Plate Upgrade Kit Harley Davidson upgrade/fix kit The Fix #2 (Our 2nd Choice): Harley Davidson also sells an upgrade/fix kit for around $499 (example) without labor costs. Again, we believe that Harley Davidson should not be selling a "fix it" kit when it was their design problem in the first place, but it is what you may be stuck with. This HD kit does not change it to a gear driven system & you don't get upgraded cams. Instead, it comes with hydraulic cam chain tensioner and high-flow oil pump. Harley says that the high-flow oil pump provides increased oil pressure at high-operating temperatures. It changes the chain tensioner from spring to hydraulic. This is the standard fix that Harley dealerships will give you unless you want to go with the gear driven system and cams, which is again our first suggestion depending on you budget of course. Harley Cam Gear Chain Replacement Complete Gear Drive Kit Picture (installed) Harley Cam Chain Tensioner back side Harley cam chain tensioner (twin cam)(backside) Email that spawned this episode: Subject: Plastic Shoes with cam chains Marc Littell of East Tennessee First just wanted to say thanks for the great content you guys put out. I commute a couple hours to work on an airplane and the Law Abiding Biker Podcast is always playing. I am new to Harley's, I've had a few older metrics and always have had dirt bikes, and the service video was great inspiration in completing the service. It really is simple to complete after watching you guys tackle it on the video. I have read about a potential problem with the plastic shoes associated with the cam chains. Do you have any info on this issue? This is a small quote from an article on JP Cycles.   "The problem is the design of the cam chain system. It uses plastic “shoes” riding on the cam chains that can (and do) wear out. Harley has made some changes in later model bikes, but even with the new hydraulic tensioning system, it is not a true fix." Link to article he is referring to He is referring to our #1 Rated Harley Davidson Routine Oil Change & Maintenance Video! Tons of bikers around the world are saving money doing their own maintenance & feeling the pure satisfaction of working on their own motorcycle. Justin (Oscar's) Original Email Response: I am very familiar with your question, I rode a 2006 Ultra Classic for three years.  Without knowing what you are riding I can tell you this: 1999-2006 Harley Davidson introduced the Twin Cam motor.  In order to run the valve train Harley went to a cam chain tensioner set up utilizing a spring loaded shoe putting pressure on the cam chain with push rods.  They also used, and I can' remember the technical name of the chain, an older chain design.  Indeed the cam chain shoes would wear out partly because of the shoe and partly because of the chain.  Harley recommended getting them checked between 35 and 40K miles.  Problem is they could give out ANY time and were not covered under warranty.  Generally when they go they break up and get sucked up into the oil pump.  This disrupts the oil flow and tells the computer the oil level is low.  This can shut the bike down.  I had not heard of any major engine problems as a result but you would need a new oil pump and new cam shoes. The inspection and replacement of the inner shoe is expensive and involves removing the oil pump and cam, the outer one shoe is easier but you have to check both of them.  Our dealership wanted $400 just to inspect the shoes, which they wouldn't do because they said if they get that far into it they might as well just replace them.  I thought, why would I replace a faulty product with new faulty products. Harley, of course, made a fairly expensive upgrade including a new oil pump and hydraulic cam chain tensioners run by the engine oil and re-designed shoes.  They also went to a new style chain.  The new design is very reliable and as of like 2009 I haven't heard of any problems with them.  Of course the upgraded kit was like $400 in parts and $400 to install. I went with a gear drive cam in my 2006.  More specifically I went with the S&S 510 gear drive.  This eliminates the cam chains entirely and actually produces a little more horsepower by make the valve timing more accurate.  It was not noisy and the 510 cam produced awesome power with the stock 88ci motor.  It was even better when I went up to the 95ci.  Parts and labor was around $1500.00 which included new push rods and lifters, which is usually necessary. Personally, in those year bikes, I would do the gear drive cam if you plan on keeping your bike for a while.  Some guys rode those year bikes and never had a problem.  Other's had problems at unexpected times.  Harley will tell you that if you are going to replace the shoes or do the upgrade you might as well do new cams, its no more in labor because the cam chest is already open, just the price of parts and a lifetime of reliability if you go gear drive. If you have any more questions let me know, I researched the various cams, cam timing and cam lift as well as gear vs chain drive. Other Email  Answered: Scott Byram of Austin, TX I watched your video on changing all the fluids.  I want to do this on my own and not rely on a dealership, at least for this basic stuff.  So from watching the video, its possible to change all three fluids with the bike on the kick stand.  I have been told the bike should be upright when changing fluids but from the video, leaving the bike on the stand works fine?  Did I get some bad information that the bike should be upright when changing fluids. He is referring to our #1 Rated Harley Davidson Routine Oil Change & Maintenance Video! Tons of bikers around the world are saving money doing their own maintenance & feeling the pure satisfaction of working on their own motorcycle. My Original Email Response: So, it is not critical to have the bike level. Here is the deal: Do everything on the kickstand if you like. If you feel so inclined and after everything seems to have been drained, you can stand the bike up level for 15-30 seconds and get the last little bit out.  But, at the end of the day that is just going the extra mile. That is why you might hear someone say that the bike “has to be level”. Honestly, sometimes I do that if I remember, but at the end of the day it is not critical.

LAB-168-Smaller Harley Riders & Females-Does Size Matter? | Modifications, Tips, & Tricks

Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com Smaller Harley rider? This episode is a result of a voicemail we got from listener Stephanie Crabtree of Kansas City, Missouri. She asked about Harley's and smaller rider issues, mainly females. She wanted to know what would be a good Harley for her at 5-03 and 120 lbs. She wanted our opinions on this issue and that's exactly what we give in this episode.  This begs the question-does size matter? Yah, I said it.  Stephanie also wanted to know about females in a club setting and whether she should join one, so we touch on that too.  SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE The size of Harley you purchase is often determined by your riding experience and not size necessarily, as some modifications to the larger models can be made. We'll talk about that later. Our suggestion for a newer smaller Harley rider is the Street or Sportster models as they are smaller, lighter, and cost less. You could move into one of the smaller Softail models from there.  I will say that even if you're a smaller Harley rider, you shouldn't be scared off by the bigger Harley touring models. If you use proper riding and control techniques, you can easily handle a larger bike. Size doesn't really matter that much when controlling a motorcycle. Being bigger will help you if you have to lift the motorcycle after dropping it though.  CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! Jumping on a bigger taller bike can be a challenge for a smaller Harley rider when it comes to stopping and touching the ground. Some modifications can be made to the motorcycle such as lower rear shocks and a lower profile seat. You can certainly drop inches doing these mods. You could also wear boots with thicker type soles, thus adding inches of reach. These are just a few tricks. Be careful not to go to the extreme with the Harley mods or you'll lose the rideability of the bike.  This article is just a glimpse into some of the information we reveal in this podcast episode, so you'll need to listen in for the rest. We also give our opinions on whether or not Stephanie should join a motorcycle club and what type.  New Free Video: How to Update Harley Wireless Headset Interface Module Software-WHIM-Boom Audio Device Manager Sponsor-Ciro 3D CLICK HERE!

LAB-170-Learn About the Iron Legacy Motorcycle Club-Interview-Guest Ray Lubesky | PT 1 of 2

Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com This is part one of my podcast interview with Ray “Izod” Lubesky, the International President of the Iron Legacy Motorcycle Club. Ray Lubesky was one of the founding members of the Iron Order MC, but is now with the Iron Legacy MC. Lubeksy says he was expelled from the Iron Order MC along with other members over disagreements in the club's direction. At that point, Lubesky and others started the Iron Legacy Motorcycle Club which now has chapters in the United States and abroad. Of course, the Iron Order Motorcycle Club still exists under new leadership.  Past Interview with Lubesky when he was with the Iron Order MC: Episode #65-Iron Order Motorcycle Club-Official Podcast Interrogation-Part 1 of 2 Episode #64-Iron Order Motorcycle Club-Official Podcast Interrogation-Part 2 of 2 We dive deep into everything you need to know about this club. The Iron Legacy claims to be a law abiding club and I can find no credible evidence to the contrary. The Iron Legacy MC is not a Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club (LEMC) nor do they claim such. They do have law enforcement members along with many other members from different walks of like.  I ask Lubesky the tough questions in this interview as there is controversy that surrounds him and the Iron Legacy MC, which was also the case when he was with the Iron Order MC.  You will definitely want to listen in on both podcast episodes dedicated to this interview. You won't hear an interview like this on any other motorcycle/biker podcast out there.  The Iron Order is a very large international motorcycle club. Like all law-abiding biker clubs should do, they refuse to follow the “Confederation of Clubs” (COC) rules. The COC has no authority over free members of the motorcycling community. They have no authority over anyone unless you willfully let them control you. For the most part, only the criminal biker community gives them any attention. Criminal bikers make up far less than 1% of all bikers/motorcyclists on the road. Instead, the Iron Legacy is a part of the Alliance of Motorcycle Clubs, which is for law-abiding biker clubs. The Alliance was created to promote fellowship and networking amongst law-abiding biker clubs. There is no fee to belong to The Alliance, but there is an MOU.  About the Iron Legacy MC: Taken from their website: On July 4, 2004 several men gathered in a garage in Indiana to found a unique law abiding club that was beholden to none. That club grew to become a huge family of brothers that paved the way for others to follow. In 2015 many of these brothers decided to start a new club to continue the Legacy of those founding principles and beliefs established in 2004. Our oaths to those founding principles and that club are intact, honored and followed to the letter as we carry that torch with us to this honorable endeavor of perseverance and continuance before those very ideals are lost to change forever. This is our opportunity to reignite the old school, traditional heritage of MC’s from the 50’s and early 60’s, following those traditions and close brotherhood all clubs seek. Our history is built on those premises established 14 years ago and we're starting our 15th year as Iron Legacy MC. Not a new beginning, but a return to the origins we swore our allegiance to that brought us together years ago with new horizons.

LAB-201-Harley-Davidson Rider Stereotypes | Are Times Changing for the Better?

Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com There are many Harley-Davidson rider stereotypes out there to poke fun at. As soon as you read "Harley-Davidson Rider" an image popped into your head. It's just the way it is and for many years it seemed Harley-Davidson riders were unchanged. But, has that changed and are the changes good? On the mics were me, Lurch, and special guest and Patron Member Bob Dawson. They also weigh in on this subject and we had a great time, so listen in for a deeper look.  SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE The Harley-Davidson rider you may think of  is an unrefined middle-aged male, overweight, unhealthy, long dirty beard, dirty baggy jeans and sleeveless shirt, tattoos, half helmet or no helmet, leather jacket or vest with pins and patches, half finger leather gloves, clunky buckle style leather boots, leather chaps, bandana on his head, wearing goggles, and wearing no modern progressive safety gear. Did I nail it?  I think that's been a long time stereotype of the Harley-Davidson rider, but it's changed over the years. If that's how you currently look, that's okay, own it. Sure, when most of us got our first Harley back in the day, we leathered up and looked the look and walked the walk to some extent. That was the expectation to make you feel like a real biker. But, once you actually start riding and not just hanging out at biker events looking good, you realize that you don't need to fit that stereotype and you are introduced to much lighter and better progressive riding gear. There's nothing wrong with leather and it still has its place if you like it.  CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! As you age you realize that you should probably care some about your physique and overall health if you want to continue riding and enjoying your Harley into the latter years. Long distant riding takes stamina and being healthy helps much. In general, we are a more health-conscious society these days and that has bled over to Harley riders too.  In general, I've seen the typical Harley rider stereotype fading over the years and that continues. There is so much available to us in the marketplace now and bikers are taking advantage of buying actual gear that helps instead of trying to fit a particular look. Riders are just becoming smarter about things.  And of course, you have different subsets of Harley rider stereotypes that have developed such as on the west coast. You'll see riders on Harley Dyna models with tall T-bars. They'll be wearing long Dickie shorts, vans shoes, and knee-high white socks & a T-shirt doing wheelies. Not that any of this is good safety gear, but it's a style. So, styles come and go in the motorcycle industry too.  Listen in to this podcast episode as we really break it down and have some great laughs. Do you fit the Harley-Davidson rider stereotypes?
