Bull Riding is for Pansies, I ride a Hog

Post title was being playful, no hate mail from all you bull riders please.

Some of you read my motorcycle blog, some of you are now saying, what motorcycle blog. It's called Following the Yellow Brick Road, and it is about all things we do around here on or with our bikes. It's the hard core chick side of me, yes, this is indeed were we all get a good chuckle (what do ya mean, you have a soft side?)

A couple of years ago, we lost two riding buddies when they were run over while attempting to turn. Last September one of our customers left the shop. When he got a few miles down the road, he was struck from behind. He was lucky, and didn't die. The driver, took off. I don't know all the details, I know the police later caught the woman that hit him. But he is in a bind now.

Please, if you know anyone that enjoys Poker Runs, and is in the South Center Ks, Northern Ok, South Eastern Mo, could you pass this along to them. Plus they'll get a chance to meet me. (like that's the real draw) Thank you guys.

Brian’s life was forever changed last September when he was struck from behind while riding his motorcycle. Both he and his bike were dragged under the jeep for 60 yards. The driver drove off, leaving Brian in the road. As a result, he is paralyzed from the waist down. He needs continued physical therapy and has exhausted his personal insurance. We hope to raise funds to allow him to continue his therapy. Each visit costs him $242.

Cost is $15 for the first hand. $5 for each additional hand

Join us for food and music starting at noon.

Suggested donation is $5 per plate.

Supported by the Gypsy Motorcycle Club and Broadway Street Bikes

Sorry to hear about your friend and his accident! Always so sad when people that do something like this don't even stop to see if they can render aid!

I hope the Poker Run is a great success!

I hope they catch the a%^*()* in the Jeep. What do people think?

I am very sorry to hear about Brian, but what a great cause and a fun time. Wish I was in your part of the world.
