Rogue with his son Dale and grandson Reese – a family that rides together.
Article by Rogue – Founder of Biker Lives Matter, Sturgis Motorcycle Hall of Fame
I have been asked a lot why I and some others started an organization named Biker Lives Matter and why it is important to me. My answer is simple, there is a need for an organization that calls attention to the tragic loss of lives and livelihoods from motorcycle crashes.
In the 1970s, I became involved in motorcycle rights and safety. At the time, motorcycle injury and death rate were high so the government and insurance companies began trying to pass laws that they hoped would help protect motorcyclists when crashes happened.
I have been riding motorcycles for 69 years and both my life and that of the others who ride has always been important to me.
I have seen many people injured and I know too many that have died.
I consider myself one of the lucky ones to still be riding at the age of 83 years old.
