Some how I missed publishing this post - so, better late than never!

What would you give a life long fan - your number one fan and your oldest fans for their birthday?

Well - if you are Valentino Rossi you give your 102 year old fan - Hilda Wright - the chance to sit on your R1. The lady thought she had won the lottery!

In the US, two rival motorcycle clubs shot it out. 27 people have been arrested, 5 injured and one who was injured was taken from the scene by an unidentified vehicle.  If the police know what sparked the gun fight, they aren't saying.

Gord Steinke - an Edmonton TV personality on Global News took a trip to the Arctic Circle on a KTM supplied by Cycle Works. His pictures and blog posts are well worth a read!

We have more rider accidents to report as well:

In South Perth the OPP report a rider was killed and his passenger air lifted to hospital and is in serious but stable condition. Kyle Lefrancois, 21, of Perth South Twp. is charged with impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, failing to remain at the scene causing death, failing to remain at the scene causing bodily harm, criminal negligence causing death and criminal negligence causing bodily harm. In addition, he has been charged with driving a motor vehicle without a required ignition interlock device. He was turning left into a driveway when the crash occurred.

In Lower Sackville, a 27 year old rider hit a guard rail and died of the injuries he sustained in the crash - the police do not know if speed or alcohol were a factor.

If you are a fortunate soul who is riding today - PLEASE -  Ride defensively, ride your own ride - do NOT let peer pressure get the best of you...Ride like everyone around you is BLIND, has an UNSAFE load and IS out to get you and please - ride Proud not Loud - invest in a 140 DB Air horn instead!
