March 4th Edition
In This Issue:
A pair of tales about Riding Boots (by readers!)
Look for much more at www.thecarolinarider.com
The Cycle Kings Motorcycle Club of Trenton NJ has been around 42 years. The Raleigh Chapter started in 2013. When a long time member moved to the Raleigh area, he started a chapter and continued his mission to make motorcyclist be more aware of their health as part of motorcycle safety.
It's one thing to have a medical incident while driving a car, it’s a total different scenario while riding a motorcycle. So, when the chapter started the members agreed with that concept and jumped right into starting an Annual Motorcycle Safety and Community Health Day.
We started in January for a May event. We met with Capital Powersports Honda in Wake Forest to obtain a venue for the event. The General manager was very receptive to the idea and worked with us to use the dealership, as well as areas for CPR/First Aid Training if needed. We contacted many local medical organizations for their participation. But we found that we started too late and we didn’t realize that it was Mothers Day weekend.
This year, our 2nd year we changed the date and started in November. We will continue this until we reach the following objectives:
Below is a list of Contacted organizations, Some took part in the event last year and some have pledged to participate in this year’s event:
This year we are growing a little bit more. We are currently seeking pledges for Blood Donors. We need 35 pledges to donate blood to the American Red Cross. Please call 609-915-2484 to sign up.
So we hope to see this event grow more and more every year. It’s the type of event where you don’t have to spend the entire day. You can take a ride with your group, hang out for a little while, gather some information, and continue riding on that day. All we can hope for is some good riding weather.
So come out and support our Motorcycle Safety and Community Health Day!

something old, something new,
something borrowed, something blue
...No, there's no bride ... just using the saying to cover some things:
Old - You've heard, I know, but you'll be hearing it again and again because we're celebrating like a coop full of hens who've all just laid eggs. This year marks our 5th anniversary as TheCarolinaRider.com and we're proud to have made it through some pretty tough economic waves as well as some uncalled-for insults by unprofessional professionals who don't know how to play nice. We're tough and we believe in what we are creating here. Plus, we're just tickled to be a voice for riders here in The Carolinas (and beyond) and thrilled to be connected with YOU! We're FIVE YEARS OLD and we're celebrating...
New - As part of our anniversary celebration, we're beginning some new things here in your weekly ezine. The Calendar Girl Week Planner will appear in The Carolina Rider Scene every week during the busy part of riding season. Check her out to see a little more detail about some events and just a short list of highlights but make sure you go to the full online Events Calendar for full listings. Another newbie to this ezine: TCR Classifieds are ready to receive your listings! Got a bike to sell? Got some extra parts you'd like to turn back into money and help fellow riders with their build projects? Got a motorcycle-related business you want to promote in the classifieds until you have a little more change for a full professional ad in TheCarolinaRider? Contact us to get your classified started today!
Borrowed - These are not really borrowed. They're just not by the writers you see here regularly. Poni Princess (who is a regular member of our creative team,) sent out a bit of a challenge in her recent column and called folks to tell us about their riding boots. And .... we got a pair! Bill Hanna and Alvin "Cattman" Cadlett sent us their stories and we're happy they've loaned us their leather-soled memories because it makes us think about our own favorite footwear. Plus, they sent some cool photos to entice us too!
Blue - We got word recently that there will not be a Thin Blue Line ride this year. The ride has been largely supported in the past and many of you have been regulars at this ride for several years so we know you'll be looking for it. As a past promoter of the event, we're sorry to see it go but know that there's a season for such things.
The saying that's been used for the month of March, I think is "In like a lion and out like a lamb." But as far as I can see, March is coming in like a lion who changes into a lamb every other day or so. Enjoy the SUNNY days as well as the cool quiet grey ones now ... because soon enough we'll be wishing for a respite from THE HEAT!
I'm on Facebook ... "friend me!"
