Other Comments:
On Aug. 26th 07, I rode 110 miles in the Purple Hearts Poker run which benifited and honored the wounded vets. Did not win anything in the poker hand but had a blast riding with over 750 over bikes.

On Nov. 4th 07, I rode in the 3rd annual "Heroes Ride", which honored the wounded Vets and also celebrated the Marines 232nd birthday, we also escorted Gold Star Family Members. All of the proceeds went to The Heart of a Marine Foundation to help wounded vets. It was a great time riding with almost 750 bikes for a great cause.
