Healing through motorcycle building and riding
We love working in the motorcycle industry – to us, it isn’t just a fun, exiting sport but our way of life. Our passion for riding occupies a lot of our time and a lot, if not most, of our money. The people we meet along the way and the little places we discover while on the road are what keep us itching for the next ride. Most motorcycle riders agree that no matter how you ride, whether it’s on a race track, desert dune or scenic highway, our community is truly the best in the world. One example of our amazing community is a group of bike builders in Texas that banded together to join their two passions: motorcycles and giving back.
Motorcycle Missions is a Non-Profit Corporation dedicated to helping Veterans and First Responders with PTS(D) find hope and healing through motorcycle therapy. Their “mission” is to instill a life-long passion for riding and building motorcycles within their community, so that they can enjoy a happy, healthy, and balanced lifestyle after trauma. Their unique motorcycles have been displayed in build contests all around the country.
Continental Motorcycle Tires recently had the opportunity to be involved in one of Motorcycle Missions’ latest bike builds – which won the K&N Filters Garage Builders Award at the IMS Show in Long Beach last month!
Motorcycle Missions customized this 2010 Triumph Scrambler and built a totally cool “Scrambler Sidecar Rambler,” tricked out with magnetic leather tank bags, a custom military paint job, flashlight tail light, auxiliary gas and water cans, rope, shovel, flood lights and more. To complete the Scrambler’s rugged look and give it exceptional on and off-road handling, it was fitted all around with Continental TKC 80s – universally recognized as the best adventure tire in the market.
