    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.:ear

    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 )

    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!!!!!!

    Need any gear? I am a bigger guy, so probably don't have much that would fit. But.....if he needs a helmet, gloves, jacket....shirts....
    let us know. This site is full of caring people with loads of extra stuff......myself included. What a great friend to help chase this dream.
    Let us know if he has some other needs. J.R.

    Hello from a neighbor near Covington. I don't have a bike to offer but a little grease for the wheel I can. I will donate some to PP this weekend. Right now I'm busted from taxes. If Micheal wears an XL helmet I would offer him one.

    I'm 5'11" and 260lbs, so I can't offer any clothing, but I did send you 30 (call it 25 and change, wanted to cover the fees). I know its not much, but I hope it can fill the tank or the belly twice, and help with the trip. God bless you for being a good friend to him.

    I've lost a few close friends/family members to cancer, and really wish I could have done this for him.

    I live in Alabaster, just south of Birmingham. If you need anything, lemme know.

    Matt

    p.s. Good luck and HAVE FUN!!!!
