Nearly 150 Leather/Bikerfolk made the trek through Fresno and up into the Central California mountains for the Satyrs Motorcycle Club's Badger Flat Run over Labor Day weekend, August 30 - September 2. This was their 58th year of of hosting a huge bonfire, all-day cocktail bar, people and bike events, run awards presentation, great food, movies under the stars, bike christening, virgin rituals, sightseeing and immense brotherhood at 8,500 above sea level. This year, the US Forest Service closed multiple campsites through-out California due to years of drought-driven bark beetle infestations which forced the Satyrs to relocate the infamous Badger Flat Run for only the second time in history, to a campsite not as far up the winding road of the secluded Badger Flat Group Camp, this year at Midge Creek. the closing night’s entertainment, Finding Kinky Boots in Neverland, the Satyrs Players mash-up of several musicals on an elaborate outdoor built on-site stage.

ECMC’s Motorcycle Weekend

Empire City MC’s Memorial Day Motorcycle Weekend was simply amazing this May at The Ranch in New York State – everything from the ride up, the ride back, the fantastic meals served all weekend-long, the camaraderie of the guests – we couldn’t have had a better time. The day trips were fun and included: Cycle Stop, Extreme Biker Leather, Ground Rounds (prime beef hamburgers) at Bill Gray’s and Abbot's Frozen Custard. On Sunday afternoon, we had a pizza-baking contest. We were all exposed to craft beers, thanks to the folks from Three Rivers MC. There was even a very touching collaring ceremony on Friday night! Sunday, anti-road gremlin bells were presented to three new bikes/bikers: Jack, Erik and Earl.
