The Beginning of the End? Nashville Bike Week


nashville bike week 2017

Will the real Mike Axle please stand up!

Mike Leffingwell, aka Mike Axle (but not for long) is many things, and now apparently he is also a psychic. In his “out of breath” YouTube video, he stated a major announcement was coming May 10, 2017 and apparently, he was right. What’s the announcement?

Well, that is a secret guarded more closely than the formula to Coca-Cola, but apparently, he was beaten to the punch by Sumner County that filed new perjury charges on Mike Leffingwell. The charges, well, I asked from the beginning, how can a convicted felon with outstanding financial judgments and multiple arrest warrants pending change his name legally? Well, the short answer is he didn’t. Hence, the perjury charge. A felony I might add. And to be clear, perjury = lying. So, was he lying then or lying now?

Now, I am not going to go over the many inconsistencies in the video. Instead, I’m going to do something different, and that’s appeal to Mike Leffingwell’s soft side directly.

Mike, and I will be honest- at the minimum, you are a passive-aggressive narcissist. I don’t say that to be combative or insulting. As a matter of fact, I don’t even hold you accountable as that could be a result of poor parenting and genetics. I say this because honestly, I don’t believe you are a con man, regardless of your past. A con man always knows there is an end game, and that is something you have failed to exhibit. A con man has a hit/run approach to the con and con men never show emotions.


Now, your tirade the other night which is visible on Nashville Bike Week Scam Page,   you called women whores and men child molesters, and insulted homosexuals. Even though in your video you apologized for similar past comments. And this wasn’t the first time, but I’m hoping it is the last time. My reason and motivation is simple enough: we all need finality.


You need to accept the reality of what is happening. You have lied endlessly about the event. What happened to the 60 cows?

It took months for you to submit the Mass Gathering Permit application and I already know the results of it. You said months earlier you had “bigger fish to fry” and you would not resolve your legal issues, only to say last week in the video that you are turning yourself in.


By the way, your ignorance is made worse by the fact that you don’t need an order because Nashville Bike Week is on private land. A simple “no, you can’t come in would suffice.” And we already know why because of my past blog why there will be no lawsuits.

It is a lie and thousands of people have called you out on all those lies except for the dozens and dozens of fake profiles you have created. Oh, and stop using the word “slander.” Slander is spoken, libel is written. I would think by now you figured out the difference between the two.

The cops in Humphrey’s County are not your bff and they are not giving you information on vendors. First and foremost, that’s not their job. Secondly, you asked that same question to the state via email and Lee Wood replied to Google it. Not to mention all the copy/paste photos. You have snitched against other motorcycle rallies and you haven’t removed blocked profiles from your Nashville Bike Week page. There are no signs or evidence of Nashville Bike Week in Myrtle Beach either.


You have to realize to a certain extent you made your bed, not your “haters,” and you need to lie on it. You could continue to blame everyone for the massive and epic failure of this rally, but fact is, you are the only one left believing it is not your fault. I won’t include your dozens of fake profiles that provide you psychological/emotional support nor will I comment on you saying people are hiding behind a computer because that is calling the kettle black.

The fact is dozens of people would love to meet you face-to-face. And as if all this is not enough, you have already pissed off those in the military. Word to the wise, wrong crowd to piss off.


There is no court order for the arrest of one person for “harassing” Janelle. Fact is, Janelle is in trouble for filing a false police report and aiding & abetting. So, enough with the lies!

It has gotten you nowhere in your past and it has resulted in your present, and we all know the future. The only question is when? And don’t bother telling us that you “worked out a deal/release” and you don’t have to turn yourself in until after the event” because we can find that court order in five minutes to confirm/deny.


You know the longer you take to turn yourself in, the harder it is to comply with the deadline of when Nashville Bike Week is scheduled and the harder the law will come down on you.

You know thousands of bikers are looking for you. You have local and state police looking for you. Tens of thousands of dollars in refunds have been issued. You know everyone you talk to gets a visit from the police or the F.B.I., which means you are alone. Even your video proves your alone.

You are running this huge event worth millions of dollars and you yourself are seen getting off the couch to turn off the camera on your cell phone? Are you kidding me?

Understand a basic tenet of life- nothing lasts forever. This is no way to live and to play cracker jack psychologist, I think deep down inside, subconsciously, you want to get caught. Trust me, I have a bachelor’s and master’s degree in criminal justice/criminology, and a minor in psychology.

The admirable thing is to turn yourself in. The running and hiding stops. The insults. The guilty conscious. Take to heart what I wrote in a book I just finished writing: “I don’t care if you are a Catholic, Atheist, Spiritual, or Agnostic, at some point you will have to meet your maker or your conscious, maybe both.


Understand that our time on earth is short lived and whether your believe in the after-life or not is irrelevant, because the only thing that is relevant is what you did here on earth. Don’t let this be your legacy.

You have a sister that has your back, and that’s admirable. Blood is thicker than water, but also understand any form of contact with you and she may face criminal issues herself.

You are an uncle and we all have an uncle we love. Uncles are the coolest people if you ask me and it’s obvious you love your nephew because you bought him that motorcycle. But, without any sons or daughters to speak of, that is how you see your nephew and that is important because you have to ask yourself what message you wish to leave with him in this lifetime. You are an influence in his life but the only question is do you wish to be a positive or negative influence?

Break the cycle! Become someone that has taken the righteous path, not someone snickered about or even worse, when your family says “nope, we are not related. Never heard of the guy.”

I am well aware of the fact that you don’t like me, but I’m not here seeking your friendship. I’m seeking finality.

Do yourself a favor. Do Janelle a favor. Do your sister, Mindy and your nephew a favor. They don’t deserve this. Start working towards rehabilitation because the last thing you want on your deathbed is regrets. Just ask anyone that has lived long enough and has burned one too many bridges.

    when you make your bed, you have to lie in it. He will have plenty of time to reflect and I’m sure with so many charges pending, he will not see daylight again.

    Great quote. Unfortunately, like you said, every minute that ticks is more harm done to himself.

    Very well said. Word of mouth has always traveled faster than any internet connection.

    Very well articulated. You nailed it on every count, doing the time will be hard on “him” due to the numerous groups he has disrespected and conned. Respect and not ripping people is a very perilous area within the correctional setting. Mike knows the price he will pay doing the time. He will be “punked-out” for the disrespect, but the snitching is an issue that will get him serious trouble. He will have to PC up and pay an outrageous amount of rent to walk the general population. I speak from 24 years experience and the writing is on the wall for his time on these charges. It will not be an easy stint and with his prolific mouth he is now selling “Wolf Tickets” that will get his ass handed to him “threw” his tray slot. We should also mention that any Zoo-Zoo’s or Wham-Whams he gets will be taken from him for being such a “bitch.” Hope he makes it out the other side.

    Very well said!
    There are many others in the world who could benefit from such wisdom but sadly will not heed your good advice. Unfortunately Mike will be one of those who do not listen. He is so far gone in this thing that rather than admit defeat, he will play it out until the end.
