Xmas Toy Run

Hi All

We have just completed all our Xmas Toy Runs down under. The Salvation Army collect thousands of toys, tonnes of food and a heap of cash donations.

Melbourne was the 35th year, my 9th.

Do you guys have them in the states?

Cheers, Ozrider

Yesterday I just did one in FL called "Toys in the Sun Run". You can Google it. Supposed to be the largest in the world. 30k+ motorcycles. They shut down a stretch of I95 for it.

Hey SahZooKee... You must be in my neck of the woods. I was planning and looking forward to the Toys in the Sun Run for weeks, then came down with a bad head cold Friday night. I didn't make it. I was pretty bummed. How was it??

If you are not living on the edge, you are just taking up space.

I'm in Stuart. Just a "tad" north of you

It was fantastic! Last year it just poured rain so when we pulled out of the lot a ton of people bailed. This year there were a few times we had feet on the ground on 95...it was packed!

That would be awesome...

Ours used to be a single ride in each state, now it is a heap of small runs starting and finishing in different local areas.

It now appears that it is too much effort for the authorities to close off a few streets for a mass charity event on a quite Sunday...

Cheers, Ozrider
