Dearest Ridin’ On Readers, Advertisers, Staff & Supporters,
As you know, it’s been a very difficult time around here with the loss of our beloved editor Bill. There has been a LOT of things going on, and many decisions to make for the family and for the Magazine and the Ride ‘N’ Roll.
So the Bish family is proud to announce that we are moving forward with everything just as it was, continuing Bill’s legacy with honor. To do this, RPM Publishing, LLC has just come to an agreement to take on a partner, and we’d like to welcome the appropriately-named Ridin On Again, LLC into our Ridin’ On family. These folks thought the world of Bill and are decades-long riders themselves and understand and believe in the biker lifestyle as much as we do. I am excited to be working with them as they’ve got plenty of new ideas and want to take things into the 21st century with possible upgrades like Apps and maybe even a future Podcast!
As there were many transition details to work out, we did not produce a January/February edition, but we will be back with our March/April issue to kick off Spring right! After that will be the big May/June edition and along with that YES! – we kick off for the ever-popular 17th Annual Ride ‘N’ Roll 2024! So to all of our friends, family and supporters, old and new – if you are interested in being a stop this year, please email or call us right away!
Please come with us as we start the next chapter of Ridin’ On Motorcycle Magazine, as every one of you have always been part of our success. I can’t help but feel Bill is smiling as his legacy continues, and I truly believe he is an Angel on my shoulder whispering words of encouragement for the upcoming journeys – on the road, with the magazine and everywhere else. 🙂

— Bill Bish — In Memoriam
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we must tell our precious Bikerdom family that our wonderful Ridin’ On Editor/Publisher William “Bill” Bish passed away Friday, August 4th, 2023 unexpectedly from medical complications while at the VA Hospital. Please click on his photo to visit his memorial.
Due to these heartbreaking circumstances, the 2023 September-October issue of Ridin’On has been cancelled. Bill’s wife, Darlene and his daughter, Rachelle, are still finding their footing after such a devastating loss. We ask for continued prayers and patience, and that you please keep visiting our fine advertisers to keep their wheels turning.
Ridin’On will return with the November-December issue, which will (of course) be a tribute to our founder and brother, Bill Bish. As such, we are putting out an urgent call to all of our Ridin’ and Rollin’ family! Please send your favorite pics and stories of Bill to email@example.com so we can build a fitting tribute to the man who meant so much to all of us.
And once again, God bless each and every one of you for all for the love, prayers and kindness you have shown the family during this devastating time. It has meant the world to Darlene & Rachelle.
