The only Kawi

Sunday I went on a benefit ride for my girlfriends little cousin Keara. She is 7 years old and has NF. It is a very sad story, but a great charity for a great cause and a great family. There was a 65 mile motorcycle ride that went through southern NH and met back at the local Elks lodge where they had food drinks and raffles (we won an Ipad air!! wooo). I would say between 50-75 motorcycle were on the ride, and I was the only Kawasaki. Furthermore other than myself a can-am spyder, and a victory I did not see anything but Harley after Harley after Harley. Either way it was a great time. I have never attended the ride hence my trepidation for posting it as a members ride, however I will the next time they have it granted Keara is still with us and they still have a ride.
Here is a link to the facespace page where there is a brief video of all of us leaving on the bikes and some pictures. (not very motorcycle related, but incase you were curious)

Harley riders are generally very giving when it comes to these type of events. I've been to a few and HD riders always outnumber other riders. I've seen people donate the 50/50 winnings back to the cause.
It is sad when people suffer. Especially children.

I agree. Say what you will about Harley riders but they show up in droves for benefit rides and that's great. After all, Harley's are ridden by wealthy lawyers, physicians, and all manner of professionals as well as us normal folk. Good on them.
