Just wanted to advertise a Charity Ride and Poker Run that is taking place in Michigan next weekend. It is starting out in the Novi area and ending up in Plymouth. We intend to map out a route through some of the twisty-er terrain in the immediate area. However it is Michigan so we're not talking anything too terribly crazy.

We hope to attract a wide range of riders, not just the usual Harley Crowd you would expect for a fundraiser. As we are a sportbike group, we would obviously like to get as many sportbikes on the scene as possible. But if you have a Harley, cruiser, chopper, custom, antique or an R6 (like there is any other bike:thumbup) we would like to see you out there.



Why are we doing this ride?
Jay Kortes [the week before his 47th birthday] was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS); most commonly known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. ALS is progressive disease that affects the nerves in the brain and spinal cord. As you can tell, his life and family [including wife Mary and teenage daughter Amy] are in for a big change. Due to this unfortunate situation and the overwhelming medical bills we are doing a charity ride in his honor. All proceeds from this ride will go directly to help with his medical bills and to make his house more accessible to his needs.
