Semper Ride

Semper Ride is a partnership of the United States Marine Corps, Strategic Action Solutions and One Eyed Bird Entertainment. The project was created in response to the increasing number of motorcycle fatalities and accidents by Marines. Drawing from experiences from their popular motorcycle-based television show, The Great Ride Open, producer/director Dirk Collins, along with producers Jim Conway and Jeff Tilton, created Semper Ride as a state of the art, high definition, big screen action that promotes a responsible riding theme. The ongoing campaign combines the film with events, a website, public service announcements and local and regional programs. Since first premiering in 2009 at MCAS Miramar, Semper Ride has been seen by thousands of Marines is proud of its role in decreasing Marine motorcycle fatalities by 44%.

This site is an excellent resource that shows Marine PPE and training requirements. It’s well thought out, and I wish every military branch had a site like this.

Here’s a Youtube link to the full Semper Ride movie, all in low-def glory. If I find it in hi-def, I’ll let you know.

RIP – Nick Varner

Nick’s page at Speedwaybikes

Varner, an 11-year old Junior rider on Honda 200cc and Jawa 250cc cycles and two-time 2011 Junior main event winner at Industry, succumbed to injuries earlier in the day. The Riverside resident crashed at Glen Helen Raceway last Sunday while racing in a motocross event. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital and listed in critical condition. Word came Wednesday morning that the talented rider had lost his final battle.

Nick with one of his wins. RIP, little guy!
