By now you probably know more about Arizona representative Gabrielle Giffords than you do about your own Congressman or woman but there's one fact that only a few of the mainstream media is reporting.  Representative Giffords is an avid motorcyclist.  A freedom of choice advocate, and was the chair of the Congressional Motorcycle Safety Caucus.   She's been riding motorcycles in her home state for the past 20 years.   There is a good report in the NY Times about her background.

  1. We are doing this as I write this. Women MC Riders in Tucson are in the process of organizing this for Thursday or Friday of this week!

  2. I completely agree with Frank. I'm sure one of the motorcycle groups in Az will step up and put on a ride. That is one of the things I truly love about being part of a motorcycle community, we support so many great causes but it hits a little closer when it's for a fellow motorcyclist. My thoughts and prayers go out to Gabrielle Giffords along with her family, friends and co-workers during this difficult time.

  3. Wonder if an Arizona Chapter for any bike group could organize a ride in support of Gaby.
