U.S.A. Get out to Garrapata Memorial Motorcycle Adventure Ride.
Hey everyone Good Afternoon, Good evening or Goodnight, whichever the case may be!
I am writing here to notify you as a fellow ADV rider of a very special event that I am planning for April of 2015 in honor of a very special friend named Ben Glattstein. Ben was a true adventurer and genuine wonderful spirit, the kind of person you'd meet one time and instantly be friends with.
In 2010, Ben passed away in a plane crash while beginning a journey to cross the Pacific Ocean in a small single engine Mooney. His loss was truly felt around the world by hundreds of his friends and family. Five years later his loss still leaves a void in many people's hearts, my own especially. So to honor him and raise funds for a scholarship in his name that goes to train better, safer pilots, i am planning a ride from the Arizona/Mexico border to Garrapata State Park in Big Sur, CA, via the. Grand Canyon, Death Valley and Yosemite.
Right now we are trying to just get the word out anyway we can through a truly grassroots effort. I have two riders guaranteed to join, with an additional probable and we will be planning to invite others for all or portions of our route in order to celebrate Ben's memory.
You can stay in touch with us the following ways:
I ask only your support and "likes" on Facebook to raise awareness for this great cause and wonderful journey!
And as Ben would say, Cheers, Mate!
