“There’s always plenty of time…”
That’s what everyone says when the deadline is four, five, six months away. Riding season is rapidly approaching. You have a garden to plant. The garage needs cleaning. There’s always plenty of time…
The MRF’s Bikers inside the Beltway is a knocking hard on three months. The 2020 Meeting of the Minds is just a little over seven months away and time is going to blaze by; “There’s always time…” Yeah right.
If you’ve been following what the MRF is lining up for the 2020 Meeting of the Minds, you know that this year is going to be a lot different than the past 35. We’re lining up topical workshops that take you back to the days when your head would spin from the shared information. Workshops were standing room only, and you spent long hours after the workshops picking the brains of people who were willing to share even more information with you.
Seven months will go by in a flash; and I promise you, there’s going to be more demand for the 36th Annual Meeting of the Minds Conference than there has been for anything the MRF has ever presented.
On top of nine workshops, a handful of presentations and a weekend to remember, the MRF is offering for the first time an all-inclusive registration pack package. That’s right, workshops, presentations and all meals for only $145.00 per person! There’s never been an MRF conference that offered this before. Once more… That’s the Meeting of the Minds Conference registration and nine meals for $145.00 per person. That’s less than $7.00 a meal!
Plus, the MRF has contracted with “Chef Bill” from ABATE of Indiana and he specializes in keeping ABATE of Indiana members well-fed and happy. Special meal requirements? Got it covered. Selection variety? Got it covered. Long lines waiting for your order at a fast food restaurant? It ain’t gonna happen!
Why is it that there’s always time to do it over but never time to do it right the first time? Here it is a three-step plan to move forward on attending the 36th Annual Meeting of the Minds.
- Make your travel arrangements
- Make your hotel arrangements: Waterfront Hotel & conference Center 317-299-8400 (mention MRF for the $84.00 nightly rate); cut-off date Sept.1, 2020
- Register for the Meeting of the Minds
You have until September 1, 2020, to take advantage of the MOTM pre-registration price of $145.00 for MRF members. Use this link to register: Meeting of the Minds 2020.
Yeah, you still have a little time before the pre-registration deadline ends for the 36thAnnual Meeting of the Minds Conference!!! However, this time there won’t be time to do it over when you don’t make the deadline.
Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you in September at the Waterfront Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana, for the 36th Annual Meeting of the Minds Conference!!!
Yours in Freedom,
Director, Conferences & Events
Motorcycle Riders Foundation

Hello from the Arizona Fine Art Expo in beautiful Scottsdale! It’s been a busy but reflective week for me as I continue to produce both commercial art for my clients as well as a slew of private commissions for my existing supporters. This week we said goodbye to both Kirk Douglas as well as Robert Conrad, both of whom were in some of my favorites while growing up including Spartacus, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the Wild Wild West series.
There were some artistic struggles for me as well as I stayed focused on a commercial art assignment that had a tight deadline and I feel that often time the commercial artist has a lot more to deal with than the purely fine artist. As a fine artist we hope to please ourselves as the ‘creator’ of the art, and we hope the art connects with a future buyer who wants to enrich their life by owning and viewing the art, but the commercial artist has a completely different set of considerations.
The commercial artist is working with specific deadlines and parameters of the assignment and not only wants to please themselves with the art, but ALSO has to please the client AND the fan base/potential customer that the art is for. This audience could range from just a few people to, potentially, thousands or millions of viewers/customers so I feel the ‘weight’ if you will is far greater as an illustrator.
Although I have found success as an illustrator, every single time you reveal your creation to the client you wait for the response, which could be kudos, disappointment or changes that are needed to be made, and for that reason you find much fewer artists who want to work for clients, than do the artist who just wants to create what they want to create. Each artist has their own path…and mine has been a wondrous journey of multiple paths and many Moore artistic wanderings.

Classic bikes are also back on track with the Ducati 900
The bike physics have been rebuilt from the ground up to create ultra-realistic behaviour, including better balance around bends. TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2 also introduces an improved first-person view for complete immersion.
The latest in the TT Isle of Man series also features classic bikes: the MV Agusta 500 Three, Norton NRS 588, Suzuki XR69, Yamaha TZ 750 and the Ducati 900, a legendary bike ridden by Mike Hailwood®.
In 1978, “Mike the Bike®” came back on the Isle of Man, 11 years after his previous participation, and grabbed the victory with his Ducati 900! Pre-order a retail version of the game on any platform to reenact this glorious moment and handle a historical bike with a particular and demanding gameplay.
This was a fun one, we hit the way back machine and inspired by our vintage Two Throat intake created the “Tribute” air cleaner cover. We then wrapped it around our high flow Stealth intake system, combining classic styling with modern performance. Take a look! ~DZ
S&S Cycle – Tribute Air Cleaner Kit
Conceived by S&S founder and brought to market by his son George B Smith, the Classic Two Throat carb and matched air cleaner served as a performance milestone in the v-twin space for over a decade. Now long gone, they are still a hot commodity for in-the-know chopper builders. Inspired by the unique style of their Two Throat intake, S&S has created the new “Tribute” air cleaner cover and wrapped it around their contemporary Stealth filter system. The forward facing scoop shape provides a distinct air flow advantage and we’ve always loved the look of this air cleaner, so bringing it back needed to happen!”, states S&S Product Manager, Grant Hillegass.
S&S has a Stealth style air filter kit for most HD models and the Tribute cover bolts nicely to all of them (available as a complete kit or cover only) in chrome or gloss black. The performance advantage is significant (up to 6hp on the M8 platform!) and most of the late model kits are CARB legal and warranty friendly.
