M.O.R.E. Fighting for 70s Bikers
People may know Ben Harroll as the renowned private detective who for decades operated out of the Gaslamp Quarter where he had his office and museum. But, before that, Ben was an AMA ambassador, Bikesville collaborator, and a strong advocate for motorcyclists.
“San Diego County now has M.O.R.E.! Big deal you say…’What is M.O.R.E., and how is it going to help me enjoy riding my motorcycle when EPS, BLM, DOT, the San Diego Board of Supervisors, City Noise Administrator and everyone else is trying to eliminate me and my motorcycle from the face of the earth?’
Fair question…here’s M.O.R.E.’s answer.
First of all M.O.R.E. of California (Motorcyclists, Owners, Riders and Enthusiasts) is not new. Mr. Russ Sanford began the program back in 1969 because he was a man who had enjoyed motorcycling for far too many years and had enjoyed raising a family that was closer than some because of its shared interest in two-wheelers to stand by and watch as motorcycling was legislated out of existence!

Fight For Ocotillo Wells SVRA
Ride to Ocotillo Saturday, March 28, to support the people trying to maintain open access in the 85,000-acre Octillo Wells SVRA off road reservation. Environmentalists are fighting to close or restrict the area, and a “compromise” plan would limit vehicular travel to a few “established trails.”
The Saturday afternoon fund raiser, headquartered at the Red Rooster Off Road Market, features a dirt ride to Superstition starting at 2 PM, with live music and raffles in the evening. Desiree Bates will receive the “Outstanding Dirt Rider of the Year” award, presented by a VP of the AMA. Ride down for lunch, buy some raffle tickets, and support our brothers (and sisters) of the sand!
