The news feeds are pretty quiet - not much in the way of motorcycle news in them other than the shocking news that the poor American economy has shut down the Love Ride.

After 25 years of serving children's charities, the organizer - Glendale Harley-Davidson has said if we can' sell enough tickets to cover the costs, we can't do the event. There would be nothing left for the charities. And the children's charities is what the event is all about, 12 of them in fact.

In his comments, Oliver Shokouh owner of Glendale California's Harley-Davidson dealership said that the event is a victim of the recession.

It is sad to see an event go from being labeled as the biggest ONE day charity event in the world to dead in the water.

Speaking of events. We here in Grande Prairie are having an AIM-Can fall social and membership drive event.

Roxy Wilde is heading up the event being held at BJ's Q Club.

AIM-Can has some exciting news to share. We have a new chapter starting up in
Thorsby AB!  Baker Bruce and Betty have got 10 members - enough for a board of directors and will be holding their first meeting soon. If you are interested in joining the Central AB Chapter of AIM-Can you can reach either Bruce or Betty at: (780) 789-3992 or (780) 996-9382 - the more members the chapter has, the better.

Cindy Nobis down in Foremost is working on a Southern Alberta Chapter for AIM-Can.

If any of you are interested in getting a chapter off the ground again down there, please contact her at: (403) 867-3019

The Alliance for Injured Riders. Riders helping rides in their time of need.
It's a great cause and one I feel everyone who rides should be a part of because you just never know when you will need support after an accident.

If you are fortunate enough to live in an area where you can be riding today, PLEASE - ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you.
