LOUD FOR THE QUIET, STRONG FOR THE WEAK

Published by RISER at September 01, 2015 in Articles
The annual Harley Davidson Charity Tour took place for the 20th time and as in the last years, their aim was to raise money for people in need, especially for children with muscular diseases. A successful story. Bikers around HD-Charity-Funds president Ferdinand o. Fischer could raise nearly 2 million Euros within the last 19 years. According to F. Fischer, this years donations will break the overall sum of 2 million Euros.

The HD-Charity Tour started on the 12th of August and led the 250 enthusiastic Harley bikers all around Austria. Supported by celebrities like Hans Knauß, Reinfried Herbst, Robert Kratky, Maya Hakvoort, Wolfgang Böck, Frank Hoffmann and Carl Michael Belcredi. This year, journalist and tv-presenter Dominic Heinzl was joining the whole tour and moderated the events at every stop. The tour led from Vienna over Graz to Klagenfurt and then from Lienz, to Schladming, Traun and as last place, to Baden.

We visited their first stop at the famous Heldenplatz in Vienna. At about 2:00 pm a really loud growl could be heard before the convoy of 250 bikers entered the historic square in front of the Hofburg. It takes quite some time for all the bike enthusiasts to park their rides so that the show could begin.

The speeches of Heinzl, Fischer and co demonstrated the necessity of this whole campaign and the important role of research as the muscular diseases are barely defeatable. The money they raised during this Charity-Tour is used for affected families as well as for the "Licht ins Dunkel" emergency aid funds.

Short before the convoy was leaving for the next stops at Brunn am Gebrige and further Graz, a local Austrian band called "Virginia Ernst" was playing one of their 8 concerts during the tour (dates and locations via website link below).

Published by MOGI at July 20, 2018 in Articles
Heading from Wollongong, down the Princess Highway, all the way to Eden. Sounds like a long way but, there are heaps of stops on the way. It could take 8 to 12 hours to do it, if you really wanted to. But for me, I’ll cruise, I didn’t need to stop until Batemans Bay for fuel, already been there so I pushed on, through to Bega and a stop at the Yellow Peach Dam Rest Area, was awesome...

THE COUNTRY-, BLUES & WHISKEY MOTORCYCLE TOUR. GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT.2

Published by GINA DREWES at July 13, 2018 in Articles
I don't listen to country, rarely blues - and whiskey is not necessarily the drink of my choice. But how could I have said no to a route that has the same title and leads through the country where my Harley was born! Although I had not yet had the urge to explore America, this motorcycle route through the southern states aroused my curiosity.
