How did Russ Brown get started?
Back in the 70’s Russ Brown traveled to motorcycle organizations giving free legal advice. He fast became the go to motorcycle attorney and created the first lawyer ever to exclusively represent motorcyclist. He then organized all the top PI attorneys in the U.S, and created the largest, most experienced motorcycle personal injury network and knowledge base ever created.

Do you have any BAM success stories that stick out?
“ I just wanted to tell you how thankful I am for this organization and its members. I signed up last year before I really started riding. Today, seven miles from home, my battery went dead. I was on my own, on a Sunday, a lone female biker. All my friends had already left on our annual trip to Vegas, and I had no one. BAM found someone with a trailer who dropped my bike off at my mechanic, and then dropped me at home! I know I will not hesitate to do what I can when BAM calls me!”

Tell us a little about yourself and how you got into motorcycling:
My entire family rode including dad, brother, cousins and uncles. I was the kid with the Lazer lines, rat tail, and bandana making motorcycle noises…
Any regrettable stories you can tell us from the rides and campouts you’ve been on?
During Sturgis 75th after a long day… I came back to my tent at Buffalo Chip to find it sitting in a mud puddle. I had no option but to sleep in it… Not a comfortable night… Woke up from Drowning a few times.
Tips for camping off the bike?
Get your roll tight… Forget real pillows…
