Why We Ride: Guardian Angel Benefit Ride

Hg20u.AuSt.112

We ride for adventure. We ride because we love the freedom it brings. We ride for many reasons. One such reason for Leon Yard, from North Carolina, is to help children who are in need. He is the ride coordinator for the Guardian Angel Benefit Ride in Fort Mill, South Carolina. Astride his beautiful GL1800 Honda Goldwing, Yard and many other riders will be doing what they love and help others out in the process. It’s a win-win! Basically, riders pay a registration fee for the day’s ride and proceeds will be directed toward a non-profit advocacy organization – FANCY – that helps children in the court system. 

This month, on September 20th, Yard and other riders will meet on what hopes to be a sunny, cloudless morning and ride to their hearts content. Some will ride for fun, others for camaraderie, and still others because it is what they were made to do. But all will, “Ride for the children.”

Which begs the question, What about you? Why do you ride?

MAIN

It’s hard to believe that nearly 40 years have passed since the first Goldwing rolled out of production. It was 1974 at the Cologne Motorcycle Show when the game changed and the following year they were made available for purhcase. There was Watergate, the Rumble in the Jungle, and the building of the Sears Tower. And then there was the Honda Goldwing: 999 cc, 61.0 cu in, flat-four engine in all its glory.

Fast forward 40 years to the present and we now have the 2015 GL1800 & F6B. Available this October and November respectively, these bikes continue to represent a way of life shaped by adventure and community on the open road with style and comfort unparalleled.

The GL1800 will be available in a new two-toned Candy Red and Black version, as well as Light Silver Metallic and Black. It additionally includes 40th Anniversary commemorative emblems.
