World Wide Motorcycle Awarness - 2014

  • May 24, 2014 · 9:00 AM

It was March 25th 2010, we lost three lovely brothers and a sister in a horrific crash on Carefree Hwy. There were also three brothers and a sister seriously injured.

From this sprung World Wide Motorcycle Awareness. Ride in their memory and that of all brothers and sisters lost or injured. Ride to raise motorcycle awareness. Ride to save a life.

This is not just a PMRG event/ride – tell all riders about this.

If you are a facebook user please sign up at:  https://www.facebook.com/events/319023234907323/?ref_dashboard_filter=calendar

Shirts availably (with $1 going to Down Rider Fund) at: http://www.cafepress.com/fmvf

KSU: 9am

Hope to see you in May 2014.

Harolds will offer a burger/brats with fries and a soda for $6.50. Please indicate if you're interested. Tickets will be available at the door. You'll then give it to your server. Anything else will be on you.

    Maybe more would come if there was an organized effort to get as many groups involved as possible. Planning this well in advance, and getting the word out to other groups is key if you don't want competive rides on the same day. Maybe a breakfast start, longer ride, festivities at the end of the ride with vendors? None of the HOG groups had this ride on their calendar. Phoenix Area Cycle. Riders had another ride on the same day with 30 attendees and they are a Meet Up group with a relationship with Ride Now. Corporate sponsorship is key also. Talking to Buddy Stubbs and the rest may help boost attendance . Planning the event I'm sure takes a lot of effort I'm sure. Also, having this as a ride during Bike Week would be a great way to involve a lot of riders from all over.

      I like your ideas Dennis. It can be done if more people would get involve. There is only eleven months left to get it done.

    Had a good time it was good to see people I haven't seen for a while.
    Everybody play safe and pay attention to everything that moves.

    Then state need to make the motorcycle riding book part of the motor vehicle book and maybe a few questions on the test starting them young on learning at least that way people would read it as most know nothing and would take the time to avoid flunking the test.

    Motorcycle awareness, I feel should be marketed to more non-riders, even focus it more to beginning drivers. Before I learned how to ride, i didn't fully get the whole bike lifestyle and bike rules of the road. Maybe motorcycle awareness should be promoted more in high schools, it sounds crazy, but who better then beginning drivers. Even focus it with driving training schools, we could hold fundraisers that would encourage cagers to come, and spend a day with a biker.

      Maybe fellow bikers to volunteer time teaching at the high schools about motorcycle awareness.

    Sorry I have to cancel at the last minute. I have a staff infection, seems to be under control, but it really sucks. I'm on such large doses of antibiotics I can't be out in the sun for too long.
