MUGGERS ATTACK A BLOOD BIKER AND HE NEEDS OUR HELP

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

A young biker from Bolton, who delivers vital blood supplies for the NHS in his spare time, has been attacked by muggers and now he can no longer ride for the Blood Biker service.

His Triumph Tiger 800 suffered significant damage, which means he is off the road and can no longer ride for NW Blood Bikers Lancs and Lakes.

Like all Blood Bikers, Niall volunteers to distribute blood supplies across the hospital network. This is a vital part of the NHS, yet blood bikers use their own bikes, in their own time.

The scum who attacked him caused significant damage to his bike. The top end of it, clocks,screen, lights etc are damaged beyond repair and will cost over £2,000 to fix.

Niall’s bike is now off the road until parts can be donated

Because of his age, Niall can’t use any of the other bikes available to NW Blood Bikes due to insurance restrictions, so we need to get help him get back on the Tiger as soon as possible.

Biker Rescues a Jack Russell Pup On His Travels

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

We love it when we find videos of bikers with big hearts! While riding around enjoying the beautiful roads of Scotland, a biker spots a lost Jack Russell Terrier dog on the side of the road. This adorable doggie doesn’t waste any time warming up to the rider and his motorcycle. It’s so sweet when the rider starts to ride away and she starts to follow him, almost like she’s saying “I wanna ride!”. How could you leave anything so sweet behind?

After checking her collar, he found out her name was “Bella” and was able to contact the number on her rightful owners. Thank goodness her owners were responsible enough to keep her collar updated with correct contact information, otherwise, this little doggie may not have found it’s way home after her big adventure.

Check out the heartwarming video of Bella and the biker below. (Be sure to turn up the volume, it’s sweet, you can hear him talking to the pup)

Kindhearted Bikers Help Save Baby Moose

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

A kindhearted motorcycle group pulls off to save baby moose.

While riding a few bikers came across a lost baby moose, which appeared to be in bad health. The mother of the moose was nowhere in sight, so the riders pulled off to help hydrate the moose and get him out of harm’s way.

At first, the baby moose wouldn’t take to the Gatorade bottle, but then once he gets comfortable with the guys, he goes nuts! We’re not sure exactly what happened to this little guy, but we hope they ended up calling the local wildlife center to make sure he was in good hands.
