Aidan's Ride NY Route

Aidan’s Ride NY Route

The staff of Indian Larry Motorcycles will be hosting  a ride in honor of the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation with all proceeds going to the foundation in hopes of bringing awareness about ALD. For those who are unaware, ALD is a X-linked genetic disease that usually affects boys between the ages of 4-10. It progressively damages the myelin sheath of the nerves, eventually leading to various disabilities including loss of sight and hearing. ALD affects 1 in 17,000 people. The foundation was made after six-year-old Aidan Jack Seeger was diagnosed with ALD in 2011 before dying in 2012.
Aidan’s Ride NY will begin at Indian Larry Motorcycles, 400 Union Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, and will end at The Emporium, 9 Railroad Avenue, Patchogue, New York. Line up starts at 9 am with kickstands going up at 11 am.

The route will take participants to Route 278, the Belt Parkway, Southern State Parkway, Meadowbrook Parway, Ocean Parkway to the Robert Moses Causeway, and the Sunrise Highway.  Some sights include The Brooklyn Bridge, New York City Skyline, Jones Beach, and Robert Moses Beach.

Pre-registration is $40 and on-site registration is $60. At-the-door registration for the after party at The Emporium and raffle is $30.  Those who pre-register will get to  ride, access to the after party at the Emporium, which includes a buffet and live music, and will be automatically entered into the event’s raffles.

Pope Francis’ Signed Dyna Super Glide Fetches $327,000

Harley Davidson_Pope_APA few weeks ago, Pope Francis donated a 1,585cc Dyna Super Glide to a Roman Catholic charity, which he had received in honor of Harley-Davidson’s 110th anniversary last year.  The Super Glide, which sports a tank signed by the Pope himself, was sold at the Grand Palais in Paris as part of the Bonhams auction house’ Les Grandes Marques du Monde sale on Thursday, February 6.

Before the auction, the bike was estimated to bring in about €15,000 ($20,469). However, the Harley’s final bidding price fetched far more than was expected: €241,008 ($327,000) including taxes and fees! That’s almost 20 times the original! Meanwhile, another Harley item, a leather Harley jacket, was sold at a separate lot, which went as high as $74,300. The bidder, however, has kept himself/herself anonymous.

From Fox News: “It’s unknown whether the pontiff ever rode the custom 2013 Dyna Super Glide that was a gift from Willie Davidson, a retired Harley-Davidson designer and grandson of the company’s co-founder.”
