My son was diagnosed with diabetes type I in 2003. In 2015 he blacked out and died in a fiery car wreck. This has been heavy on my mind, was there something that I could have done to prevent that from happening? I came up with many scenarios, but there was really nothing I could have done to prevent my son from dying.

I have decided that I could help in trying to prevent this from happening to somebody else. I’ve done a few things to raise some money for the American Diabetes Association, but nothing really major. I had a dream in the second week of January 2018 that I was raising money riding my motorcycle all over the country and that I raised $90,000.00 in one year. I thought this was a great idea so I’m pursuing it.

I love traveling and seeing new places and making new friends. And the best way to do it is hopping on my motorcycle and hitting the open road. I love that feeling and excitement of riding a motorcycle.

Journey along with me on the ride of my life, as I travel around the country on my motorcycle, raising awareness. My goal is to raise that $90,000.00 in one year.  See the incredible roads I travel and the amazing people I meet along the way—working at events, recording videos, and taking photos!

  6. If like me you’re tying to find out a new language after that anything that make thee
    process easier has actually got to be an excellent point.
    I’ve looked at many of the devices available and have discovered
    to my prihe that most of the paid ones are quite a lot worthless.

    Hi Rex. My husband and I are participating in the Motorcycle Grand Tour of Texas, this year. I know you will be in the Hill Country later in Oct. Not sure we can make it there for our photo with your trailer to get our bonus points. We live in EastTexas near Tyler. Any chance you would be somewhere else we could find you prior to the 17th?
