The skies were grey on Saturday November 18th, but failure was not an option at the US Marine Corps Toys for Tots bike run. The police escort delivered over 300 riders safely to Miller’s Ale House in Levittown where the Levittown FD had the American Flag flying high above the ground for all the motorcycles, military and hot rods to pass under, it was quite a sight to behold. The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year. They distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community. Retired Major Chuck Kilbride USMC, is the Executive Director of Toys for Tots in Nassau County, and the person who runs this admirable campaign. I had the opportunity of speaking with John Gravagna, Vice Chairman for the TFT program. (Continue Reading)

Unfortunately, Mother Nature didn’t want to co-operate with the Leathernecks M.C., 2017 Run to the V.A. With rainy-windy conditions, the club made the difficult decision NOT to ride, for Safety Reasons. As long as I have been involved, the only other time I remember this run not happening was during the year of Super Storm Sandy. Even though the weather was an issue, this year’s gathering still went on as planned. With plenty of delicious home-made food, music provided by HUSH and a few vendors for folks to shop.

Deer Park Saturday Night Cruise-In

Article and photos by Cowboy

Every Saturday night,(weather permitting) starting in late spring and ending in early fall the parking lot behind McDonalds, off route 231 in Deer Park is filled with cars, trucks and even a few motorcycles. From classics, to modern muscle cars, and everything in between make up this collection of sweet rides. There are a few diehards that attend every week, but what brings folks back week after is the fact that there is always something new rolling in. I have had the pleasure to see a 1916 Rio and a Military Deuce and a half. I made a lot of new friends at this event, and found out about Sunday shows that were not on any calendars. I look forward to next spring and hopefully this gathering will continue. Drive safe, folks! (Continue Reading)

The Rev-4-Dev run always went off without a hitch. I cannot believe that for 2 years in a row we had to reschedule for the following week. Both this and last year Mother Nature just did not want to work with us and insisted on dumping buckets of rain, sending down whirling winds and casting stormy skies. To really add insult to injury it rained on the reschedule date, which had us up against 4 other runs. With all that being said, I really have to send a heartfelt thank you to all that supported (Continue Reading)
