JAT excellent event and good cause to contribute to. You always put on a top notch ride and look forward to this one.

I'm working on getting a few of the boys from OC to join up. See ya soon.

Almost time!

I just realized....

ONLY 3 MONTHS until the 2nd-Annual Cancer-Ride-For-Life departs Ocotillo, bound for Parker AZ!!!

Time to get involved people;
- If you can't make the ride, help us put last year's donation to shame. DONATE NOW!
- Reserve your spot as a rider (see requirements on the website)!
- Help the cause, by offering to be a support person, chase truck driver or recruit your buddies to do so! (email us)

Let's RIDE PEOPLE!!!

Let me add to the news of the event, and what
some of you might be more interested in reading;


Some of you may or may not know Corky Behrle, known to many as simply "Corky". Corky is a well known, and very established Baja enthusiast, rider, and heck of a good guy. You'll also often know him by the miles he's put in up here in the States on his bike, or simply from him offering up himself and his big white Van as race support. He has been battling Cancer himself over the past year(s). Sadly, it's weakened him... and although his battle seems to be doing well, he's decided to offer his collections of motorcycles and motorcycle parts... to the Cancer Ride.

Let me explain; Corky has not ONE, but up to 4, 5 or even 6 motorcycles he'll be offering up for auction, or raffle for this Cancer Ride!!! Some (if not all) of the parts, and motorcycles will be photographed and noted for this event. I have yet to decide how we'll auction, or raffle the items and I'm working with Corky on how this will work out (between auction/raffle and delivery of items)... but at this point, I want you all to pass the word... and you, yourselves to get out your wallets. Dig deep... and help this auction/raffle be a huge success. Show Corky, and the Cancer Ride... we can raise LOTS of money to help support the fight against Cancer... and Childrens Cancer!!

I want to personally thank Corky for such a HUGE offer, and donation to the cause. In my travels, and meeting Corky... he's always been a positive and spirited man. It's an honor to be involved with such an event, and even more so with people like Corky. Hats off to you Corky!! You are truly an inspiration.

Stay tuned.... more info will be coming out on the website (www.Cancer-RideForLife.com) and on the forum board(s).

Thanks,
Cancer Ride For Life

Hello all...
This year, we've had a slower response to the donation side of the event. However, have had more interest in the actual ride and this is great all in itself as each rider deposit will help feed into the donation allotment. With the slow response to donations, this has increased our amount and type of raffle prizes.

I'd like to announce we now have added;

A complete Trust Package $600-800 value
(Trust, Wills, Durable power of attorney, deeds...etc)

A Saltwater Fishing Charter $1000 value
(a personal charter for one person, via CaptainClowers)
AS OF TODAY : 08/30/2010
This brings our total raffle prizes and auction to the following;

A.S. Racing's contribution of one of the following;
Valve Job ($119 value)
Port/Polish head ($299 value)
Suspension Service ($129 value)
Suspension Revalve ($205 value)

Airtime-HID's contribution of;
An Airtime-HID Enduro headlight ($420 value)
An Airtime-HID "HID" kit, for your vehicle of choice ($100 value)

Soundeluxe's contribution of;
An Alpine Car stereo ($170 value)

Corky Behrle's contribution of;
A PW50 motorcycle
More than one; XR350 motorcycle
An XT350 motorcycle
... spare parts and items not yet inventoried.
(undetermined amount of value, but HUGE contribution!)

A complete Trust Package ($600-800 value)
(Trust, Wills, Durable power of attorney, deeds...etc)

A Saltwater Fishing Charter ($1000 value)
(a personal charter for one person, via CaptainClowers)
OVER $5000 worth of service or items to choose from!!!

More info to come on the above, posted to the Cancer-RideForLife website this week.
(go directly to the listed raffle prizes = http://www.cancer-rideforlife.com/2n...ffle-main.html)

... please send in your donations and raffle prize entries!!!
Or support the Cancer Ride with a purchase of the Event T-Shirt or Hoodie!!
(here is the direct link to the order page; http://www.cancer-rideforlife.com/2n...ns-shirts.html)

Drawings will be held mid November, for all raffle prizes.
Corky Behrle's contributions may be in Auction format, TBD.

Cancer-RideForLife

I thought I'd announce... publicly, on TT and here as well...

That the man we all know as "Corky" has been going through some tough times, battling the ailment we all know as Cancer. Through this tough time, he's made some choices. Tough choices I'm sure, as it would be for anyone in his position and condition. Sad as it is, there's some light at the end of that tunnel. Corky is one heck of a man and has decided to contribute his vast collection of dirt bikes to the Cancer-Ride For Life event which in itself, was started to help fight Children's Cancer.

Read more about the event, here; http://www.Cancer-RideForLife.com

If your interested more in helping out who I call "Baja Corky"... real name, Corky Behrle... or the event, the Ebay auctions for his dirt bikes will start this coming Friday, the 24th at 8am.

They are as listed (remember, links won't work until Friday at 8am);
'81 PW50- http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=120624142006
'85 XT350- http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=120624138511
'93 XT350- http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=120624130411
'82 XR100- http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=120624127114
'85 XR350-1 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=120624123720
'85 XR350-2 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=120624113020
'85 XR350-3 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=120624119212

Thanks for your time,
JAT

CRITICAL DATE NOTICE:
We are almost down to the last available time to sign up for the ride.
... don't delay if your thinking of joining the fun, and the ability to contribute to a great cause.
Cut off date is 10/11/2010, as I'll be reserving all rooms, ordering all shirts/stickers and finalizing the details at that time.


:UPDATE:
We also now have a Discussion FORUM
(see bottom of any menu on any Cancer Ride page)
Register today, and be a part of the discussions.
No need to be a part of the event. Come on over and talk it up!




I hope we have some people cleaning out their couches, breaking open their piggy banks, and offering up some last minute contributions. So far, we've BEATEN last year's contribution amount of $4100 (post ride, I'll announce total contributions)!!!

Don't forget, you can also order a t-shirt, or Hoodie to show your support;
http://www.cancer-rideforlife.com/2n...ns-shirts.html

Thanks to everyone thus far, for their pledges. We couldn't have done it without you, and your efforts. Who says the economy is in the dumps?! You all showed me otherwise!! (even though I'm still unemployed, and about to make a tri-fold cardboard sign)


Pass it on!! The more people who know about this, the better we support the cause!!


Thanks,
Johnny
