Fredericton Motorcycle Club Toy Run

I usually don't take part in large motorcycle rides as I do not enjoy riding in large groups. I do however support the Fredericton Motorcycle Club Toy Run as it raises money for the local hospital and supports the breakfast program at a high school in our school district (my employer).

Here are a few pics from today's toy run...click on pictures for a full view.





There were several bikes that caught my eye on the toy run. This Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic caught my attention...it has been somewhat customized and has a very unique look. The custom V-Star is driven by a young man that I taught in high school about 10 years ago.



This 1946 Harley Davidson garnered a lot of attention as well. It is a daily rider that many enjoyed looking at.





I had a brief conversation with the owner's partner and she explained the history behind the old '46. Here's a short video clip of the owner starting the '46!

Finally, it was nice to spend some time with my '02 V-Star 1100 Classic...I have been neglecting her a bit since I purchased the '09 Buell 1125R. She worked well and purred like a kitten! Here she is and notice that I am modeling my very cool Hellcat Customs t-shirt.



Until next time, keep the right hand cranked and ride safe!

  4. Thanks for promoting our Toy Ride. It is always great to hear someone from outside our club say that they had a good time.

  5. Use this as an approximate guide for braking: Slow speeds up to about 10 mph, you can use your rear brake. Speeds above 10 mph, you can use your front brake lever. motorcycle shipping

  6. If the fear of injury, pain from injury, permanent physical damage and scarring is not enough to prompt the use of motorbike helmets well than there is always the law to consider. motorcycle safety
