“Hi, , hope you guys are doing well. As you have seen on the news,, Japan is facing disaster. My hometown where is my family is not affected since they live 700 miles away from the disaster, but I have a few friends living in Sendai city who are experiencing the most horrible time that we can’t even imagine.
One of my friends, ,Souji Abe of Wild Road Choppers, who came all the way to Sturgis to participate to the 2007 AMD Championship is located in Sendai City. It was confirmed that he is alive, safe and evacuated, but since his shop was near the coast where the Tsunami swept the entire area I would imagine that the damage is devastating. It will take years to recover from a disaster of such magnitude. There’s nothing I can do except trying to help via relief funds. I would really appreciate if you have time to post these relief funds information on your media”
