On April 30, registered the mileage on my Harley Super-Glide with the Roanoke Valley Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). From then until Saturday (Sept. 10) each mile ridden on the bike was worth a penny — pledged by the rider and his sponsors.
Only a penny, you say? When you ride a lot, a penny a mile adds up.
On Saturday, turned in $790.70 — the total raised for riding 19,079 miles in a little over three months. Even though I probably rode the most miles, another rider with the Roanoke Valley Harley Owners Group (HOG) talked his company into a $1,000 flat rate contribution so I wasn’t even in the running for top dollar.
Doesn’t matter. The important thing is that a considerable amount of money was raised for a good cause.
Now, anybody seen my anti-monkey butt powder?
