Okanagan Motorcycle Ride for Dads 2009
Hundreds of motorcycle riders participated in the first Okanagan Motorcycle Ride for Dads charity event on June 7 2009. The ride started at City Park in Kelowna, making it's way south through Peachland, Summerland, Penticton and Osoyoos before turning east towards Rock Creek. From Rock Creek it was back to Kelowna along highway 33. Please note at the beginning of the video I put in a clip of bikers drag racing at Thunder Mountain, bike riding in the Okanagan takes many forms. music by Jason Shaw
Who cares? Okanagan Motorcycle Ride for Dad's, that's who.
Motorcycle riders often get a bad rap, but in reality most of the riders are just like you and I, and the riders are involved in a variety of charities. Okanagan Motorcycle Ride for Dad's is about fighting prostate cancer. The unofficial total raised: $20,000 CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE RIDERS!! Thanks to all the committee members for their hard work & promotion. Donations can still be made directly to the cause online, or through the mail. Visit motorcycleridefordad.org
When's the last time you saw a Vega?
Ford Pinto, Chev Vega all with big high horsepower motors at the drag strip. I love cars and a local drag strip brings back many memories of great cars gone by, including Chevelle SS 454.
