Memorial ride for one of our own VERY IMPORTANT _

As many of you know one of our brothers, Brian Skullushter, lost his son, Damen, last week.  We all offer our deepest sympathy to Brian, his wife, his daughter and the rest of his family.  Brian's son was only 23 years old and just starting to ride.  As bikers and brothers/sisters it is our duty to honor him with a memorial ride.

During these difficult times we are committed by the Biker's Code to help in whatever way we can as well.  I will set a course for a country ride that will allow us all to reflect on how precious life is and how important it is to get all we can out of it.  Our time here is brief and can be taken away from us in an instant.  This is our time to reflect upon that.

We will end the ride with a dinner and celebration of life in honor of Brian's son.  I am asking that we all donate $10 per person for the dinner.  ALL the money will go to help the family to cover the unexpected bills.  Any help  with additional donations will be gratefully accepted as well.

All of the details of the ride and dinner will be posted within the next few days.

The dinner will be at The Sports Page Tavern (my home away from home) 17800 Chillicothe Rd (RT 306) in Bainbridge.  (about 500 feet south of RT 422).  Anyone who cannot ride with us is welcome to the dinner.

UPDATE 9/14/12:

We will meet at QSL in Valley View. Kickstands up at 3pm.  I have plotted a route that should be nice for riders of all levels, about 60 miles.  We will ride a steady pace through the Valley and then off to country roads leading us through  parts of Trumbull and Geauga Counties and on to the sports page.  There will be minimal, if any, freeway riding so this ride should be good for members of all levels.

As with all of my rides please be gassed up and geared up at 4pm.  Please be ready to ride the full course.  I may stop for a leg stretch along the way, depending on our pace.  I may not.

I look forward to seeing you all there and enjoying a casual "head clearing" ride.

      Nothing on the schedule. As we enter the nasty weather most rides end up being last minute. I suggest you sign up for the broadcast text service (see the message boards) and check the site daily.

    WELLLL- It looks like mother nature may not be on our side on Saturday. It will be cool and there is a chance of rain. I AM STILL PLANNING ON RIDING unless the weather is terrible. Please gear up appropriately. I will post here and email everyone on Saturday around noon with an update. Please note that even if we don't ride the dinner is still on. We WILL support our brother and I look forward to seeing you all there. Please also note that The Sports Page is a CASH ONLY establishment (as in no credit cards).

    Do you have the route mapped out? If so, can it be emailed or downlowed? Asking because I can't ride my little 250 on the freeway.

    September 17, 2012

    • J

      I do have a route mapped. There is no freeway in the run. We will pace between 35 and 50 most of the route. I am not sure how fast a 250 goes, but if you are street legal you should be able to keep up with us.
