Rally Around the World – Day 1

Rally Kids Adrianna & Amelia

As we arrived in Clarksville, Mid-South Motoplex served hot dogs on the grill along with iced, cold drinks as Molli provided the musical entertainment It was emotional when Adrianna so eloquently addressed the Clarksville group with thanks and her desire to conquer this terrible disease – she is such and inspiration and a beautiful young woman…have had her sweet smile on mind this entire day as we made our way to St Louis.  Folks…this is what Rally is all about! Chuck,

Dave, Rick, Keith, JR & Stark continued on the ride after Clarksville with Chuck & Dave stopping at Metropolis and the rest of us riding onto St. Louis for the night – have to beleive some gambling was on the agenda for the evening for a couple of the riders.

Ended the ride with a great meal prepared by Paul & Lilly Telker – bar-b-que ribs, corn on the cobb, sweet potatoes and broiled tomatoes topped off with some Kentucky bourbon.  Had a great time on their deck with some great conversation and welcomed the opportunity to stay with them in their home for the evening – just can’t beat their MO hospitality.

Rally Around the World in Just 3 Days

Down to just 3 days before I head out on this 14,000 mile ride around the world supporting Rally Foundation and all the great things they do to fight childhood cancer.  The rally begins Friday evening, July 27 with a kick-off party at Cool Springs Powersports in Franklin from 7pm to 9:30pm with food, drinks, music and a good time.  On Saturday morning, July 28 the Rally Around the World First-leg Ride starts with registration from 9am – 10:30am at Cool Springs Powersports and the ride leaving for Mid-South Motoplex in Clarksville – about a 60 mile ride.  From there I’ll head out for my first stop in St. Louis staying with Paul & Lilly Telker with T-Plex Industries – an NDC vendor partner that has been so gracious in allowing me to stay the night in their home!

Natalie Martin continues to be a huge supporter of my event by most recently creating the sponsorship decals for the bike along with all my sponsorship embroidered patches for my riding jacket.  Melissa Smith jumped in this week and has been booking hotels along my route and providing me with up to the minute details  – she’s terrific at scheduling and managing any event and especially keeping me on task.

Received my shipping packet today from Motorcycle Express – these folks arranged the shipment of my bike from London to Montreal along with my bike insurance GREEN CARD for travels in Europe.  Also, the last 2 weeks I’ve been working closely with Wendy Choi in Seoul, Korea to arrange customs clearance for the bike arriving in Inchon along with scheduling the bike to be trucked from Inchon to Dong Hae where I’ll be catching a ferry up to Vladivostok, Russia.  Rindy Veatch with DHL in Anchorage did an amazing job working with Polar Air Cargo and scheduling the bike shipment from Anchorage to Inchon – just a lot of great people making this event possible!
