The soap opera that is NBW and has outlasted General Hospital, continues. Unless you only listen to Mike Leffingwell, aka Mike Axle, then of course, all is well. He has said don’t listen to the media because President Trump said so. I guess the entire media and motorcycle riding community for no reason at all has decided to pick on him, including the Better Business Bureau which has at least twice come out against the event, and the Humphrey’s Sheriff’s Department even has a link on their site to file a complaint regarding Nashville Bike Week. Now it is the Tennessee Department of Health.
In the latest, Nashville Bike Week is no longer selling tickets until they receive their permit for the mass gathering law and has been ordered to stop per the State of Tennessee Health Department.
Still no construction on the land that Axle claims was leased for 15 years, even though on social media the daughter of the land owners said that the family farm was not hosting the event. Recently, an attorney experienced in this area of law and licensed in the state of Tennessee, mentioned to me some very interesting points, as well as many others that have reached out to me. For one, because there are river/streams on the property, the EPA gets involved. Big acts such as Gene Simmons have to approve new concert sites, a standard clause in the business as well as a “morals clause.” Nashville Bike Week has claimed someone won a motorcycle in a giveaway, that means the Tennessee Gaming Commission has to be involved (rumor is a family member won). And many more potential issues were mentioned to me.
Still, no new face for the event, something Axle promised. He still hasn’t taken care of his multiple warrants which he promised he would after he originally said he wasn’t going to take care of it because he had “bigger fish to fry.” He still hasn’t paid his outstanding judgment of $249,000 from his conviction even though in an interview he mentioned $900,000 at some point. Here’s an idea- how about paying off that judgment first, since that should take all of ten seconds. There’s no cows to deal with, permits, nothing. It’s just a matter of sending a cashier’s check to the Court.
In the meantime, “ssshhh,” don’t say anything on social media or Mike Axle will block you within seconds.
Any questions, contact a licensed attorney in the state of Tennessee. I’m sure they will be willing to consult with you over the phone. The information available on this site is for informational purposes only and is not to be construed as legal advice.
