Last Tuesday, military dignitaries, celebrities and friends joined Lorenzo Lamas, Chad Greulach founding parter of Lorenzo Lamas Cycles, Army Colonel Dino Sarracino and custom builder Ralph Randolph for a charity ride from Devils Tower, Wyoming to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.
Objective? Raising money to benefit Operation Homefront and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center while enjoying rolling on some of the beautiful stretches of American asphalt.
The ride ended at the Buffalo Chip for a private reception, a performance by Mocassin Creek and in the evening a Toby Keith & Poison concert. You’ve got to join the next Sturgis “Rumble For The Heartland” but almost anywhere you live, you can join all year long with the same charitable operation repeated all over the country. Next one will be a 80 miles ride to Nashville, TN September 2, 2011 (staging area at Fort Campbell, KY) with the participation of country music celebrities Gretchen Wilson and Big & Rich. See calendar at Lorenzo Cycles Rumble To The Heartland.
During the Sturgis “Rumble For The Heartland”operation Lorenzo rode a Ralph Randolph built 124” S&S Twin Cam FXR hot rod that powered aggressively through the well-paved sweeping turns that weave through the grasslands of Wyoming and donated the bike to raise support for the cause. You can win this bike by buying a $100 ticket at Lorenzo Cycles. A previous bike Ralph Randolph built to benefit Operation Homefront raised $175,000. The objective is of course to raise more.
