That I had jo in ed w ith thousands from all across th e land, making T he M ilwaukee R ide forM .D.A . It happened w h ile on one of Oliver's H eritage Softails out of his Glenda le stor e, runnin g a backroad of apparen tly no end. T rying her big thund er and th at singu lar touch. A grand spin it was, th at H arleyDav idson power trip awarding me ego to spare. And then! - I felt th at pa ssion and f ire bu rn in g dow n below , down w here its motor made a music that sent me away on a journey into legend! Into th e past, presen t, and a future on ly a few weeks from now! And I dream ed of going on it, of riding " T he H omecoming" to fa r-off W isconsin . I wo u ld begin it on Ju ne II in Los Angeles w ith R ide L eader W ill ie G. Dav idson, or on th e 10th in San ' Francisco with R ichard T eerlink, or with Vaughn Beals in Was hington, DC, on the l -tth, I' d ride alongside these factory folks f rom places lik e Montreal and Orlando, Edmonton and Vancouver, San Antonio and A ugusta, Maine. And from faraway Kittyhawk, Fargo and Seattle. And I'd go right now to a H arley dealer, sign up today, m ake my donation. Bu t whatever bik e I had, I would ride. If no t on this Sojtail, or Electra Gl ide, or Low R ider - H ell then! - I'd ju st go ahead anyway on m y big Beem er tw in! Or aboa rd a Katana. Voyager o r Ven ture or Paso or Wing. It' d make no differen ce, really; The R ide was th e th ing! W hat is importan t would be livin g those m iles with my motorcycle frien ds. A nd on Saturday, June 18, at last at M ilwaukee's Summerjest grounds to ben ef it t he Mus cular D ystroph y Association, we would join up to beco m e H ar ley-D av idson 's 85 t h birthday pa rty! T o help raise th e dollars to fig ht a crip pling disease for w hic h there rem ains no cure only hope. It cou ld be the largest group destination ride the world has ever witnessed. fo r on e of the best charity causes I know. And aft er it was all ove r, I would have seen America anew from a pr ivileged seat. From a motorcycle. From that special perspect ive that opens the mind and fills the soul. And I wou ld come hom e again. H ome to a life I'm w illing to share, and to share once "m or» always. Th e H omecoming! Milwaukee! I' m going! Copyright Page 3 Productions.
