    Bikerís Summertime Christmas Spirits Support Children

    <img align="left" src="http://www.riderinfo.com/news_images/motorcycle-leaving-county-line.jpg" border="0" style="margin-right:6px" alt="Picture of motorcycle leaving county line bar" />This past weekend the U.S. Military Vets held the first annual Christmas in July at the Fox Crossing in Marion County. The benefit was to raise money for the annual Christmas Toy Run put on by the North Central Florida Presidents Counsel.

    Motorcyclists were able to stop by the Fox Crossing and have lunch, for a small donation, while listening to the sounds of the Still Willis Band. There were 50/50 and raffle drawings to help raise money for the Toy Run later this year.

    Out of Lake County the folks with the Lake County Motorcyclists will be holding a Community yard sale, to support their 12th annual toy run, on August 4th, 2007 at the Leesburg Christian Center. The Center is right behind the Honda Shop on Main Street in Leesburg just west of downtown.

    The yard sale is part of the annual toy run which benefits Kids, Inc. and The Haven. Stop by early and you might find some things one would expect to find in a motorcycle shop, not at a yard sale. Donations are also accepted and appreciated.

    Don’t forget the Bounty Hunter Run out at Scooter Haven in Inglis Florida. On August 4th they are throwing a benefit to raise money for a bounty hunter that has agreed to go to Mexico and grab an a-hole that killed a biker and disabled the passenger that was gonna marry him.

    Sturgis 2007 is ramping up and by now most of the motorcyclists that plan to attend are on the road. Many great events are planed and we’re looking forward to the stories that come home with them after the run.

    Then Gumbo Run is coming August 11, 2007. Check out page six of Scootergoods magazine August issue for details or download a flyer from Rider Info.

    Be careful out there folks, statistics say that people in cages are dying less and motorcyclists are dying more. According to those same statistics, most of the motorcyclists dying are unlicensed and uninsured.

    Most would argue back, the cage drivers are killing the motorcyclists, and they have a strong point. The point is getting across too, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in California has noticed. Hopefully more funding will become available to educate cage drivers on motorcycle awareness and that we motorcyclists have as much right to the road as them. Awareness continues to grow on the issue itself and the need for the education, tell a friend or show them this article to keep the momentum building.

    No pictures this week, it was my birthday and with the rain, well, there wasn’t much to take pictures of. But, we did hang out at the County Line Bar Open Jam Sunday and shot four videos of complete songs. We got one from DL doing Merle Haggard, two from Ferg that are originals, and one of myself doing matchbox20 3am. Big thanks to Chris, Eric, DL (Dennis), Larry, and all the folks that make the open jam possible every weekend.

    Ride safe
