The Legacy Ride Update




The Legacy Ride Motorcycle Rides Again! The Legacy Ride Motorcycle is presently on its way back to California for a large ride to benefit MDA in the Central Valley on October 2, 2005. Thanks to bike shipper Daily Direct for making this possible.

On the way, Jeffrey Davidson Schrager will participate in a special commemorative ride in Denver, Colorado honoring those Airline Crew Members who perished in the line of duty on September 11, 2001 aboard UAL flights 93 and 175 and American Airlines flights 11 and 77.

The ride is called RIDE911.COM with a website of the same name. Click the link for more information. To quote from their website:

"September 11, 2001 marked an event that would forever change our nation and the way in which we live our daily lives. This horrific event left a scar on this nation that can never be healed, we must never forget.

Our nations pilots are now not only flying some of the most high tech equipment in the world but are also having to defend the integrity of their ship so it may never be used as a weapon of destruction against this great nation. Our In-flight crews through vigilance and awareness are the first line of defense so hopefully the pilots won’t have to be the last. Our ground crews are also a vital link in the safety of our everyday routine. The training that each and every one of these groups has gone through keeps our skies safe.

The 9/11 ride is in remembrance of our brothers and sisters who have fallen and for the ones who make it happen everyday, keeping the traveling public and our nations skies safe."

Bike to be Re-listed on Ebay! The Legacy Ride Motorcycle was previously listed on Ebay and the auction was ended early due to the fact that it should've been listed through the GivingWorks side of Ebay and not through the main site.  Even though we didn't know it at the time of the original listing, Ebay already had all the infrastructure in place to handle the sort of charity transaction we needed. We are now waiting on MDA to get registered with MissionFish (who handles the charity side of Ebay) and then we will re-list the bike.  This improved listing will hopefully make for a more seemless and easier transaction for the winning bidder and preserve our ability to benefit MDA at the same time.

Our apologies to all who had bid on the bike previously and wish you all good luck when this special motorcycle is re-offered.  The opening bid will still be $1 and the reserve will be set at my cost. Anything over the reserve will become a donation on behalf of the winning bidder directly to MDA.

Check back often for the lastest info for your chance to own this one-of-a-kind motorcycle that has a legacy and a history all its own.

Willie G and Family Sign the Sidecar! After the Founding Families Reunion that immediately followed the 100th Anniversary Celebration Opening Ceremonies at the Juneau Factory, Willie G., Nancy, Michael, Bill and Karen Davidson all added their signatures to the front of the sidecar.
