Cry A cancer victim needs a bike to ride as a last wish...Louisiana

Finding Mike a Ride....

I am trying to find a bike ASAP quick for a friend... we are putting a travel package together....

The Docs gave him an estimated 6 months to live after exhaustive attempts to treat his cancer failed. He lives in Slidell Louisiana, he would like to ride to Florida and to California to see his dad if he can make it that far.

We are trying to find a Honda 650 shadow or something similar (He is 5' 10" 120 lbs.) something around $2500.

Thanks for all the Donations!!!!!!! We have enought at this time to get Mike on the Road!!!!


Meet Mr. Michael Fritz... photo from this weekend at the beach (a good friends of mine Jason and April have been taking care of Mike since he has no family help )


.....
.....
.....
.......

UPDATE::: The bike is bought and paid for by the Advriders here!!!!!



I scored a 2003 Honda 750 ACE Shadow for $2500 19 k miles with 2 new tires (i will change them) from a local fellow. He even accepted our paypal money and accepted his $75 paypal fees as a donation to our cause.... I will have some pics tomorrow! If we have extra money we can prepay for insurance and give Mike some gas money...

Wow this is fantastic!!!
Thanks to all - No More donations needed at this time!!!! THANKS TO ALL WHO DONATED!!!!!!
