ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE DANIEL FOUNDATION, donated in Charley's name.
1.) Leather Lady (registration starts at 10:00 a.m., kickstands up at 10:45)

4.) Murray's Grill
5.) Redneck Yacht Club (on Hwy 17)
There will be a live band at the last stop; last bike in at 4:00 p.m.
While Charley's most recent ride of choice was his Victory, he shared a passion for ALL motorcycles, and was very supportive of events/rides in the sportbike community (including those for our friend C.D. Kring, who was killed in 2006). I would love to show Charley's riding friends that we, too, are supportive of him.
Charley was killed in a hit and run motorcycle accident, literally 2 doors from his house, on his way home from work on July 23rd, 2007. Charley was a longtime friend and co-worker of mine, and his death deeply afffected all of his friends.
If you cannot make the ride, there is a Vystar account set up for donations -- Acct. #702736130 - this account will be open through September 5th, 2008 (The Daniel Foundation has their annual ride on September 6th, 2008, so the proceeds will be turned over to them on that date).
Please come out and show your support for a wonderful, sweet man, who was known as the "Leader of the Misfits."
