Photos from Motorcycle Expo

I attended the Motorcycle Expo yesterday at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, in Commerce City, Colorado. It was nice to walk around the displays, although the attendance seemed to be kinda sparse. I noticed Grand Prix Motorsports there, and checked out their electric motorcycles from Zero. Glad they are stocking them and wish them the best. I also saw Unique Rides with their Urals and a Honda Trike. ABATE of Colorado displayed several race bikes, and the State Police performed demo runs on their Harleys. I had never seen a stunt bike up close before, and noticed the dented up gas tank and hole in the pillion seat, I guess for sitting on the tank and doing wheelie stunts. Looks like they also had a brake lever on the left side, right above the clutch. Useful while they’re sitting on the tank.

It was a very friendly event, and I hope to catch the next one. Full set of photos here on Flickr.

POW/MIA Recognition Ride – 24th Anniversary

19th annual Salute to American Veterans Rally

Returns to Cripple Creek, Colorado, August 19 – 21, 2011

SALUTE TO AMERICAN VETERANS RALLY MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Salute to American Veterans Rally Committee and our annual event can be summed up in five simple but meaningful words:

DUTY, HONOR, CAMARADERIE, RESPECT and FREEDOM.

DUTY: We personally feel that planning and executing this annual event is our duty. While many of us, myself included, have never served our Great Nation in the Armed Forces, this is our way to give back. While the debt of gratitude that we owe to every United States Veteran – both living and passed on, can NEVER be repaid, this gathering is one small effort to show how much we appreciate your sacrifices to our Nation, and our freedom. This is our mission.

HONOR: To honor the memories of every fallen Veteran from the revolutionary War to the present day. To Honor ALL living Veterans. To honor all Active Duty Military Members. To Honor our Flag – the symbol of our nation, and to Honor our Country, the greatest in the world. This is our mission.

CAMARADERIE: To create a time and a place for Veterans to gather together and share the experiences and feelings that only Veterans can understand. Also, to create a venue in which patriotic Americans can convey their appreciation, support and respect to Living Veterans and to the families of the fallen. This is our mission.

RESPECT: To show respect to our Flag, Our Country, to each other and most importantly to those who protect what is dear to us. This is our mission.

FREEDOM: Freedom is the life-blood of America. For many, the Motorcycle is the embodiment of Freedom, giving the rider the ability to go where they want, when they want with few restrictions. Like an Eagle flying Free, the feeling is without compromise. Freedom is a precious gift to be cherished, honored, relished and respected. The gift of freedom is one that most will never enjoy, as they are forbidden by tyrants and dictators who hate freedom and despise those who have it. The Gift of freedom comes with a very high price: It is paid for with the blood of Hundreds of Thousands of United States Veterans, and with the tears and anguish of their families. So precious is the gift of freedom that taking it for granted is unthinkable, outrageous, and nearly a sin. So we gather here, to honor, remember and respect those who pay the price for OUR FREEDOM, but also, to CELEBRATE that freedom. Celebrating our freedom: This is our mission.

God Bless America.

Katie’s Ride – Benefit run in Loveland

Katie’s Ride

JULY 17th, 2011

REGISTRATION 9AM to 10:30AM
Starts at The Office Lounge
1710 W. Eisenhowever, Loveland, CO

Last stop & Auction at Crazy Jack’s Saloon
6520 S. College, Fort Collins, CO

Auction starts at 3 PM – Lots of great items!

We are raising money to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Katie represents over 50,000 children and adults currently living with CF in the United States alone.

All the proceeds from Katie’s Ride are sent to the Denver chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation where over 92 cents of every dollar is used for research and helping those currently living with CF. Over the past ten years, all of our participants and sponsors have helped us raise over $100,000 for this cause!

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects the pancreas, liver and lung functions in the body. It is the number one genetic killer of children today. A child born today has less than 50% chance of living to the young age of 36. We have made some progress. Just three years ago that age was 32, but it isn’t enough.
