Smile Ride was yesterday.......

All I can say is WOW.... our local sportbike community never ceases to amaze me. The ride was yesterday, and it went off PHENOMENALLY......

Last year, we had approximately 125 registrations (some were extra hands, as it's a poker run, and some were passengers). We were hoping to hit 100 this years (last year, the response was so good because we did the ride within 3 weeks of C.D.'s death, and also this year there was a benefit ride to raise money to rebuild the Humane Society on the same day as our ride, so we expected attendance to be down significantly). We ended up with 112 registrations -- barely down from last year. We did have 10 or 20 passengers, and 20+ CARS (a local car club came through with flying colors to support the cause), so we estimate about 80 bikes.

The total route was about 150 miles, with registration beginning at 9:00 a.m., first group out at 9:30 (following a pre-ride meeting and prayer), 4 stops around town, and then the final stop with the raffle, DJ, dyno drag, etc... It was a BEASTLY hot day.... mid 90's with very high humidity, so heat indexes were up around 100 degrees. But it didn't keep ANYONE from coming out to support the cause.

We had about 8 people working registration, selling raffle tickets, etc... and were surprised that several people who hadn't previously expressed interest in helping stepped up to the plate and lent a hand. With 10 dozen donuts donated by Krispy Kreme, boxes of coffee donated by Starbucks, and coolers of water and gatorade donated by Publix, the day was off to a great start.

Three of the 5 stops had free food for the riders (two did cookouts, and another ordered pizza). There was a bikini bike wash at one location, and 5 'roller girls' (from one of the local Roller Derby teams) at another. And one of the stops (a Suzuki/Moto Guzzi/Can-Am dealer that's only been open for a few months) offered 50% off all in-stock Arai helmets while we were there. (he also reportedly sold 2 bikes, 2 Can-ams, and a Sea-Doo to people on the ride)

Final stop was at a local sports grill (where we also have our weekly bike night), where we raffled off some $10K+ in prizes (all generously donated by local dealers and MC shops, restaurants, businesses, as well as some online dealers, tracks, race teams and Icon Motorsports).

We estimate so far that we brought in over $4000 yesterday, between registrations, raffle ticket sales and cash donations (last year we brought in around $5K). While our goal was higher, we're still thrilled at the over-whelming response from the community... It was truly an amazing day.

AND, as far as we know, the day went off without incident (last year there were a few tickets). One friend DID snap the chain on his R6, but he and his passenger were able to stop without going down, and (since he has roadside assistance), his bike was back up and running by day's end.

Oh ANNNNNDDDDD....

We dropped about $50 on raffle tickets (figuring who cares if we win, it's all for a good cause, right?), and I ended up cleaning UP on prizes!!

I won:

...a mesh Frank Thomas mesh jacket from Cycle Gear
...a KBC helmet (I forget the model, but it's their top of the line one)
...a Honda t-shirt
...a G.C. for 4 new shocks on any truck (Chris is super excited, cus he's also been wanting to do a slight body lift on his Frontier)
...a $50 G.C. for a car stereo shop (Chris is also excited about this one, as he's got a really nice Pioneer head unit he's been wanting to put in the truck)
...a gift card and stainless steel coffee mug from Big Bikes (they carry Big Dog and Victory motorcycles, and have a GREAT selection of casual wear and accessories)
...2 different pairs of Alpinestars gloves (one mesh and leather, and one perf'd leather - both black, and both Chris' size)
...three different Skin Industries t-shirts (all for little girls -- I'm giving these to a friend who has a school-age daughter)
...a kick-ass Pirelli Diablo baseball cap (I'm picky about ballcaps, but this one is super nice)
...a $25 gift certificate to our favorite Mexican restaurant (we might give this to a friend as well, since we're the ones who ASKED them for it, we feel funny using it )

And a few other little things...

All of our friends are like, "That's it... from now on we're having you hold our raffle tickets, because you ALWAYS win something!"
