Meet the New Rider: Frank Eagar # 849
Frank #849 wants to ride the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge for the reputation of being the True Warriors these riders have earned by participating in an event like this one and wants to earn the patches to prove it. He loves long distance riding and although he has known about the HHMC for about 4 years this will be his first time to ride. Growing up in South Africa he was one of about 10 people who rode Harley's so Canadian and Alaskan construction is not intimidating to Frank at all. After riding a rigid frame bike 3000 miles in 5 days his mechanic recommended he do the HHMC. He like the peace he finds while riding and looks forward to spending time with his friend Reggie # 850 doing this event.
Hydration, pacing yourself and “Don’t be stupid,” are a few pieces of advice he has been given and works toward bring awareness to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and fund raising for Pine Ridge Area Chamber of Commerce.
