    I am not sure how many of you have ever met or ridden with Marty Leverton. He is a Motor officer for Renton PD. He has a rare form of bone cancer in his voice box and there is a fund raiser in motion to assist him with related expenses for travel and family support. For those of you that know me, you know I give my all to the riding community. My heart aches for Marty, as I have known him for 30 years, heavily influencing his life early on. He has two children and his family really needs help. I am trying to come up with a catalyst to start a group ride, akin to the AWARENESS ride I started and did for 2 years in early 2000's. I am attempting to get assistance from BackFire Motorcycle Night. I am requesting the people I have helped over they years in our riding community to help me out with this one. I don't ask for help often, but this is deeply personal and important to me.

    Even if everyone can just pass the link around....that would be exceptional. I am trying to get a hold of BackFire Moto and KISW/Men's Room.

    Thank you, each of you. If I can ever return the favor, please feel free to call on me. Marty is the type of man that will divert his energy to his wife and kids if they have problems or are uncomfortable while he is in treatment. This fundraising is as much to do with helping ease the financial load as his recovery. This means everything to me. We are up to $22K.

    I just spent time today with Marty as he taught/tested new Motor officers from the area. He is a master trainer, and does shit on a bike that I am CERTAIN is Witchcraft/Matrix stuff...lol. He is working until he leaves (to remain distracted...and be stubborn). The LE community has held up their end with donations, support and care of his Home while he is gone. He will be leaving early in October, and he should NOT be burdened with worrying about them. www.Team-Marty.org will be supplying updates during/after surgery, and there is a silent auction being put together at Renton HD. I will be donating a Concealed Pistol course, or tactical course (Whatever they decide they want). If anyone here has anything to donate, feel free to contact Renton HD through the www.Team-Marty.org site....OR make it to the dinner and bid bid bid!

    Consequently, due to some recent significant medical issues for me personally, I just have not been able to put together a ride.
