Meet the New Rider: Reggie Aldridge # 850
Reggie # 850 is the first rider from South Africa the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge has ever had. Spurring each other on Frank Eagar # 849 and he learned in Sturgis about the “prestigious” riders the HHMC had and wanted to give it a go so he could say he was part of the family. Growing up in South Africa with a scrambler Reggie has done a lot of riding. This year’s challenge he will be riding a 2016 Street Glide he picked up here in the states so he wouldn’t have to deal with shipping.
“Show a lot of respect” is advice he was given and has taken to heart. “Don’t be cocky” but be vigilant and pace yourself because it is “tough.” Stay within the laws is great advice he was given as well. Reggie says the HHMC is all they talk about when he is with his friends. Looking forward to helping with fund raising for Pine Ridge Area Chamber of Commerce.
