We are super excited that the new Law Abiding Biker Media Studio & Shop continues to be built and the walls have been erected. We have been working hard for over 4 years now helping the law abiding biker community worldwide with the videos on our YouTube channel, our weekly podcast, and our website articles. With the awesome support of the community, we are trying to take things to the next level to better serve the biker community. We must expand to fulfill our future visions.
Thanks to everyone who has helped support this Campaign. Your support humbles me every day. We are still well behind our overall financial goal and are continuing to try and get closer to that goal. What does this mean? Well, no worries, it just means that we may get the shop/studio enclosed and then have to stall a bit and save more to get everything done inside that's necessary and envisioned. We will eventually get it all done! We haven't given up in the four years since starting this thing and we're not going to now!! God Bless each one of you that has taken action.

Well, I must say that I admire your tenacity. I can remember quite well when you first started out a few years ago. I did not know what to think. Here was a guy who wore his hat backwards and talked as fast as a Missouri auctioneer. In my minds eye you were targeting an audience that I was not a part of. So I just ignored you. You didn’t appear as a threat to me, nor I to you. Life went on.
Over the course of the next, maybe two years or so I began to watch a few of your videos and listened to your spiel and came away with a little bit different idea about your law abiding biker mantra . Somehow in your earlier videos I did not realize that you guys are actually real people who just happen to be cops. Slowly but surely I began to connect the dots in my mind until about a year ago I realized that you were “the real thing”. I began to actually look for your videos on YouTube and liked what I was seeing. Suddenly I was looking at you guys as not just another “garage band” type of good ole boys who were trying to raise gas and beer money for yucks and grins. I believe you have now made the transition to a real bonafide business that just happens to appeal to bikers because because you are bikers. In this case you probably appeal much more to the touring bikers because of your age and what most of you guys ride.
I very much applaud your vision for the future. I believe if you work hard and go slow you will probably get there. I don’t know where you are in your professional working career as far as retirement but if you play your cards right this could morph into something that would provide a living income in years to come. So keep your eye focused on the content of your videos. If you don’t give the customers what they like, they vote with their feet. Currently their is no shortage of “how to” videos on the internet. Most are unprofessional and are created by some gap toothed hayseed who just got a video camera for his birthday. It is a good thing that YouTube is free because most of us would not pay a penny if we actually had to pay for their crappy content. Some of us actually go to the internet to learn how to do something. That is where you seem to be filling the bill. Communication is everything in today’s world. Without it you don’t stand a chance of succeeding at anything. You do communicate well. So keep it up and continue to stay focused. I like what I am seeing. If I see something in your store I think I can’t live without, I buy it. Keep in mind that I am an old man. I have been riding for 54 years now. I have everything I “need” to ride, but sometimes I see something I “want” for my ride. My latest acquisition is a new M8. Like you once said “This one is a real panty dropper”.

Very well written and thought out Harrison. Great insight brother. Thanks for that! So glad to have you as part of this community that is growing daily. You are correct, we have no intent other than to help as many bikers as we can worldwide and grow the business side as we do so. We are learning as we go. The community and serving bikers will always be our priority. If we are lucky, some of us may be able to retire early from our LEO jobs, but that’s distant at this point due to finances etc. Maybe we give too much away for free. Who knows.
