Thumbs up M.A.D. Ride

The M.A.D. (Make A Difference) ride is an annual charity event here in Perth, Western Australia. The purpose is to raise funds for spinal injury research. These are some pix of the ride held today - well over 1,000 bikes! The Casey Stoner Replica Ducati with the lovely lady astride it was raffled to raise even more funds.

Re: M.A.D. Ride

You're very welcome. I just heard that over $100,000 was raised, and there were more than 2,500 bikes!

Re: M.A.D. Ride

That's my friend John's bike. Mine is the Brutale 910R. He also has an F4 750, and an old BMW (don't know the model).

I haven't heard of anything like it in Sydney - maybe you should start one up!
