VIRGINIA BEACH – Motorcycle enthusiasts at Knuckleheads Roadhouse are all revved up to help those who help us — first responders who serve and protect and keep us safe.

They’re using the 14th Annual Virginia Beach Bike Classic to raise money for “Vigilant Watch”, a non-profit group that raises money for first responders and their families during times of great distress. It was started by Joe Long and Wayne Sandlin, two long-time firefighters.

A great motorcycle safety ad from Europe that I found while browsing around YouTube.

SCREW IT LET’S RIDE

100 years of motorcycle design on display in Portsmouth

August 20, 2009 by · Comments Off on 100 years of motorcycle design on display in Portsmouth 

This summer the Courthouse Galleries space is looking more like its Olde Towne neighbor, the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame.

Inside, motorcycles are everywhere.

There are 40 of them spanning a century in design, from a 1912 Triumph once owned by an Irish outlaw to a 2009 Zero that runs on electricity.

Visitors will find racing and riding garb from notable bikers, even from the Motor Maids, a national association of women riders founded in 1940. A section on local legends and videos of races round out the resemblance to a sports center.

With August’s dog days upon us, be extra careful on road

August 3, 2009 by · Comments Off on With August’s dog days upon us, be extra careful on road 

I RECEIVED a call several days ago notifying me that my father had been in a serious motorcycle accident near his home in Montana. Apparently, the unusually warm 97-degree day had gotten to him and he suffered heat exhaustion and passed out. He went off the road and down a ravine, most of the way on his belly.

My father was luckier than most. He suffered a mere few broken ribs, road rash and a badly bruised face. The first responding officer on the scene told him that he had just left the scene of a similar bike accident where the driver hadn’t made it.

The western United States is experiencing record-breaking heat, and motorists there are being taken by surprise. But we in Virginia are approaching the hottest time of year as well, and commuters would be wise to prepare accordingly.

Life Saving Crew Holds Memorial Ride for Fallen Member

July 27, 2009 by · Comments Off on Life Saving Crew Holds Memorial Ride for Fallen Member 

GLADE SPRING, Va. – Billie Jo Fogleman wanted a motorcycle for her 40th birthday.

So her husband, Jim, got her a shiny black Harley Davidson Sportster. Just weeks later on July 11, her first big ride with her husband and five friends, she was killed in an accident two hours away in North Carolina.

The Foglemans are longtime members of Washington County’s Life Saving Crew, and her death weighed heavily on the area’s close-knit rescue teams.

“It’s a brotherhood,” said friend Jerry “Pokey” Poston of volunteer rescue workers throughout the region, “We’re a family outside a family. And it’s been hell.”

Dozens of Southwest Virginia’s rescue volunteers, many of whom share Fogleman’s motorcycle hobby, gathered at the Glade Spring Volunteer Life Saving Crew station Sunday afternoon for a memorial ride and fundraiser.

The ride was originally planned as a 100-mile circle, but was cut short because of rain.

If you were out on Route 29 Saturday, you may have seen what looked like a Hell’s Angels Convention. It was actually a fundraiser, raising money for cancer research.

The Minute Men motorcycle club based out of Culpeper held a Poker Run to benefit the Children’s Cancer Center at the University of Virginia.

Members are from all over Central Virginia, including Greene, Louisa, Orange, and Madison counties. The route took them from Greene County down to Charlottesville. The group made a stop at Riverside Restaurant.
