Kickstands Up

5th Annual Kickstands Up Poker Run

I was extremely happy to see another MC pick up this run, which benefits Long Island’s Veterans. When my Friend, “Trooper”, passed away last year (shortly after this event), I was worried that this event would disappear. Thanks to Founding Son’s, LE (the military M.C. that didn’t happen) and the members of the Impressive & Aggressive Motor Club this year’s show was awesome. With over 100 cars/trucks the parking lot soon filled up, so they needed to begin parking vehicles on the lawn of the facility where the show was taking place. More than 65 motorcycles arrived to participate in the Poker Run portion of the event. With many different forms of musical entertainment throughout the day, and some truly amazing food and vendors, over $2000.00 was raised to help the Suffolk County United Veterans group.

Thank you to those who rode, and to all who brought their eye candy cars/trucks out for folks to admire. Most of all-thank you to all of America’s Veterans-past-present-current and future. Without all of you, the rest of us would not be able to do all that we enjoy doing! Ride, drive safe and serve proudly!
