About Us:

Some of you may have reached this site through a search engine, or other means, not knowing anything about, so we thought we should let you know a little about how this website came to be.

In 1999, Jack and Mary Ann Lawford started a site for rodding called which has evolved into the largest online publication in the field. Since Jack is also a Harley rider, and so many of our visitors have asked over the years, we decided to expand our online offerings to include motorcycles. We started with classifieds for motorcycles in our classifieds and within two weeks of adding them 2 of the bikes listed sold.

We are adding new features here every day so be sure to check back often. We welcome your submissions: event listings, show coverage, pictures of rides you’ve been on, etc.  We also would love to hear any suggestions you may have as far as what you would like to see on We intend to “grow” this site to include all of the things we have at so if you want to see what is to come on BikerHotline, just take a look at our other sites.

We are based in Boise, Idaho but make every effort to cover numerous events around the world in person, or through one of our many roving reporters.


Jack Lawford, Sr. and his son Jack,  BikerHotline Editor, on their way to cover the next event!


So look for us at all the best events, rides and rallies as we make our presence known and provide you with the best and only online bike magazine you’ll bookmark as we have it all.
