Meet the New Riders: Robert Talbett, Jr #831

Rob Talbett, Jr. # 831, from Jamestown, New York, ran into some Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challengers at his local Harley Dealership. He called his dad to see if he had heard of the Challenge and his dad’s response was “Oh yeah, that’s bad ass! Those are some hardcore riders right there.”  At first his dad considered himself too old, but Rob got him to agree to give it a try. The event has already brought them closer together with daily conversations and planning for the Challenge.

At first he felt like riding the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge was like getting his 15 minutes of fame. Once he learned more about the Challenge, he realized there was much more personal growth & altruism involved in being a Hoka Hey rider. He plans to be an additional voice for the true meaning of the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge.

Rob, Jr. is actively raising money for the Chautauqua County Youth Hockey Association, a local 501(c)3 providing area youth the opportunity to not only play, and learn about the game of ice hockey, but also teach the values of good sportsmanship, fair play, and respect for others. Rob Jr. also has a GoFundMe page for friends and family who would also like to contribute to the nonprofit.
