Remember when you were a kid, and the two best days of the year were Christmas and your birthday? Well, I feel lucky, because that IS how I remember it. But we don’t all remember it that way. Imagine hearing about this guy Santa, who brings great toys to good girls and boys? But then Christmas came and went, and you got nothing? Because your family was homeless, struggling………or worse if you didn’t even have a family? Imagine the difference your one gift can make to that one child. ‘Tis the season for Toy Runs, and I believe it is a noble cause.

Can bad boys do good things? Of course they can! Whenever they feel like it! The San Fernando Valley Hell’s Angels have been doing their annual Toy Run for a very long time. And a couple of those boys have been my very good friends for a couple of decades. These boys knew me back when I rode Hondas up to Rick’s Drive Inn back in the late eighties. They have always been very supportive of me throughout my years in the world of motorcycling. So a group of my friends all joined in to support the best of the “bad boys” doing a good thing. The toys donated go to young boys and girls without parents at the holidays.
