Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys®: There is much more than meets the eye when it comes to describing motorcyclists, bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts; while to me all three names mean the same thing, to others there is a vast difference. No matter what name you choose one thing is certain, motorcycle riding holds many different meanings to many different people. To some the motorcycle is a lifestyle as is evident with slogans like “Ride to live, Live to ride”. While others see it as a recreational activity, while still others contend it is hobby that is shared with a son building a custom Harley in the garage, and lets not forget law enforcement and motorsports professionals who make their living from riding. Whatever reason you ride a motorcycle, it is truly only important to you which reinforces the freedom of riding in the first place, but when motorcyclists ban together to ride for a good cause the taste of freedom only gets sweeter!
For as long as they have been motorcycles, men and women have joining together to support important causes, such as supporting important issues and generating money for local charities and groups in need.
One of the biggest national events that motorcyclists support is in the Los Angeles California area – the “Love Ride”. Over 25,000 riders participate in each year’s “Love Ride” – an amazing number – raising millions of dollars for various charities over the years. The mix of riders includes full-time bikers, “weekend warriors” (who are dentists and accountants the rest of the week), and groups for “mature bikers” (with their slogan “Born to be Mild”) among many others.
Other such national and local events are the annual children’s toy runs hosted by the Salvation Army and other organizations to gather toys for needy children at Christmas time, as well and warm coats and clothing.
The beauty of caring and giving is easily seen in the large packs of motorcycles making their runs to lend their support for many different worthy causes, ranging from donating blood, gathering food, toys and other items for needy families, to raising money for national causes like the march of Dimes, and others.
