A bit about Chuck and his passion for everything motorcycles. Chuck began riding mini-bikes at age 8. His first mini-bike was nothing more than a Sears type, two wheeled contraption, with no suspension, a rear scrub brake and a lawn mower engine.

After surviving a couple of years on that ill handling and quite honestly, dangerous mini-bike, Chuck got his first job as a morning paper boy for the Chicago Tribune and eventually an afternoon route for the Chicago Sun Times. He was then ready to take the next step and buy a real bike. Honda had came out with the then well know and Honda 50. Full suspension, a 3 speed transmission and a kick start.

From there at age 10, Chuck, began racing minibikes and ultimately ended up on a Honda XR-75 and a Yamaha YZ-80, racing the mini-nationals in Alabama, Ohio, Wisconsin, Texas and other places throughout the country.

As a young boy, continuing to get taller and more passionate about racing motocross, Chuck outgrew mini-cycles and started racing Honda’s newly introduced and incredible CR125-Elsinore. The motorcycle that revolutionized the sport of motocross throughout the world.

The 70’s were the peak of motorcycle sales (even to this day) throughout the world and the sport of motocross continued to grow. Tracks were springing up everywhere and racing location choices were endless, if you wanted to race or just ride.

The movie On Any Sunday, with Steve McQueen, epitomized the popularity of off-road motorcycling. Everything just blew up. It was the perfect time to ride a bike.

While in high school, Chuck worked at a Honda/Yamaha dealer in Chicago. Northwest Honda-Yamaha sent him to the American Honda Factory Training facility in Greenfield, Wisconsin. Chuck became certified at age 17 and earned high school credit at the same time.

After graduating from high school, Chuck moved to Arizona and immediately began working at the old Cactus Kawasaki on McDowell Road in Scottsdale. At the same time, Chuck went on to attend Arizona State University then Whittier College School of Law (after a year of being a Maricopa County Probation Officer) in order to become a lawyer. Ultimately he found his niche representing injured bikers and riders of everything motorized, on two wheels.

Chuck’s passion for racing, caused him to join the AMA Monster Energy Supercross Series, as a local sponsor. To this day, Chuck Franklin Law, is the longest running local sponsor of the series for 20 years.

Chuck Franklin Law was there at the inaugural first Arizona Bike Week held in Avondale, Arizona over 20 years ago, and continued to annually sponsor Arizona Bike Week over 22 times.

Chuck continues his passion with anything involving motorcycles, but had to hang up his helmet at age 55 and stop racing. Chuck continues to ride on the street and attend and sponsor motorcycle events but the yearning and passion to hop on a Dirtbike has never ceased.
