Meet the New Riders: Brian Edwards #838
Brian Edwards, #838 from Chesterfield, Michigan, is focused on why he wants to ride the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge, “I want to be one of the elite long riders, I want to push myself as far as I can.” His longtime friend & HHMC Pro Long Distance Rider Mitch Matzek, #104, encouraged him to take on the Challenge. Brian’s enthusiasm could be considered contagious because he has already convinced two other friends to sign up for the 2018 Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge.
Although he has ridden other motorcycles for many years, Brian has been a Harley Rider for 10 years & will be riding his 2010 Streetglide in the Challenge.
“Wolverine HD is my sponsor this year & has helped me with my fundraising efforts.” Brian’s chosen charities are the Amvets Post 29 in Mt Clemens, Michigan and the Vets Returning Home nonprofit located in Roseville Michigan. Between the euchre tournament, fund raising dinners and other events, Brian has already exceeded his fundraising goal of $10,000 and continues to raise money for his chosen charities.Brian is very excited to take on his first HHMC and has realized that although he could just write a check to support these organizations, asking others to get involved and sharing the reason for his efforts has been very rewarding
