Biker Information Guide was started in Arizona in 1997 by Kimmy Chapman. Since then we have been featured in Biker Magazine, Arizona Republic, Seen on MTV, VH1, ESPN II, Channel 3 & 12 News. Kimmy helped in the Creations of Arizona Bike Week in 1997 & 98 and was one of the Original Official Sponsors. Kimmy was the Sponsor & Presenter of the Motorcycle Portion of 36th & 37th Annual World of Wheels Custom Cars, Hotrods & Motorcycle Show in Arizona. She was also the Vendor Liaison for the Best of the West Motorcycle Event…Featuring the OCC “Orange County Chopper Guys”. She was the first Women to be a Distinct Manger for the MMA and had done over 600 Benefits, Poker Runs, Tattoo and Motorcycle Contest.
We lost Kimmy in a motorcycle accident involving a driver making a left turn at an intersection in March of 2011.
Her Goal was to make sure that Motorcycle Riders are well informed with our website. We also have quarterly magazines in Arizona. Biker Information Guide is small enough for the riders to keep with them or on their bike. There is FREE distribution at Biker Friendly Establishments & Motorcycle Events. We found that some of our readers & advertisers still have our original magazines to this day.
2016 is going to bring a whole new level to Biker Information Guide, with Kimmy’s daughter Kelly Hemphill at the helm. We are going to roll out a new and improved website, increasing the number of states that we will serve. Our sister site www.runsandevents.com will come back into the fold.
All this will line up with Kimmy’s goal to make sure the Motorcycle Community is well informed.
