    This is the 6th annual Rider Skills and Safety Day. Now for the sake of
    motorcycle safety and raising needed funds for the La Honda Volunteer
    Fire Department, motorcyclists, firefighters, law enforcement officers,
    other agencies and interested community members have come together for
    this awesome event promoting motorcycle safety and as a fund raiser for
    the La Honda Volunteer Fire Department!!!

    This is a community event!

    The motorcycle riding community including Dr. Harry Wong, chirorpractor
    in Redwood City who hosts the "Doc Wong Free Riding Clinics" along with
    the La Honda Volunteer Fire Department, along with other community
    agencies such as the California Highway Patrol, San Mateo County
    Sherriff's department, Cal Trans, 84-35 Traffic Safety Committee, and
    other community members have gotten together to create this awesome

    There will even be opportunities to meet and talk to our local law
    enforcement officers to share opinions! Also we'll be able to talk to
    many of the volunteers for the La Honda Fire Department. This get to
    know each other time can foster much more cooperation and help for all

    Not to mention all the motorcycle vendors and geat deals you can get.

    The spark that ignited this was due to the accidents and injuries we
    were having in the area. Something had to be done about it. Dr. Harry
    Wong, chiropractor who practices in Redwood City, representing
    motorcyclists and Larry Whitney the captain of the La Honda Volunteer
    Fire Department got together and found wide acceptance of the event
    from various agencies and community leaders.

    Doc Wong was already involved in motorcycle safety, holding free safety
    riding clinics in the area for the last 11years and has been very
    active in the motorcycling community. Larry Whitley as a volunteer
    fireman has been the first responder at the scene of many motorcycle
    accidents over the years. Many riders are totally unaware of the
    ongoing efforts of these well trained volunteers who are there when we
    need them.

    The La Honda Fire Brigade was founded in 1953. Today it provides fire
    protection, along with the CDF/San Mateo County Fire Department, to
    over 138 square miles of the San Mateo County Southcoast. The Brigade
    is one of the county's last all-volunteer fire departments.

    Larry has commented that he's amazed that the feedback has been so
    positive in support for this event from residents and other agencies.

    So the goal of the event is to have a great time and foster
    understanding between all involved and to gain knowledge that would
    enhance our enjoyment of motorcycling by improving our skills and
    gaining knowledge that would help us survive out on the roads!

    The cost is free and all are welcome!

    If you have a bike that you'd like to show, e-mail Dr. Wong for entry

    Ride street, ride track, ride dirt, trials.....ride.....well!
