MRF/ Lucas Oil Bike Sweepstakes Winners Announced

At the close of a very successful 23rd Anniversary of the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) Meeting of the Minds in Cedar Rapids, Iowa the highly anticipated drawing for the donated MRF Lucas Oil sweepstakes custom bike was held September 22nd.

The winners are MRF and ABATE of Colorado members Jim and Renee Clark of Colorado. They were not present, however the large contingent in attendance from ABATE of Colorado represented them well. Pictures of this group as well as a photograph of the winners receiving the keys and the bike will be available on our website ( shortly and in the upcoming issue of the MRF Reports. The very entertaining call to the winners recorded live to inform Jim and Renee of their new addition can be heard on in the first week of October.

During a call the next day between MRF President Kirk "Hardtail" Willard and Jim Clark in order to arrange pickup, Hardtail jokingly asked Jim if he thought he could handle the 140HP fire breathing S & S powered custom pro street bike and Jim replied by stating he was sure he could since it would be parked next to his 190HP drag racing bike.

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation would like to once again thank the following people and companies who played a major role in this sweepstakes: The Lucas Family and Lucas Oils, Lucas Cycles and the build team led by Master Builder James Crain, Easyriders and V-Twin magazines and Bike Shows, Michael "Balls" Farabaugh of Michael Farabaugh Studios and Lucas Oils, DRM Framelock, the MRF Lucas bike transportation team, and to John Pierce, Deb Butitta, Marc Falsetti, Miles France, Eric Hampton, and Sarah Muckenhoupt of the MRF for all their hard work to pull this off.

And lastly we would like to thank all of our MRF members, our MRF State Representatives, and to all of our State Motorcycle Rights Organization partners who embraced and promoted this program so well. In recognition of your efforts we are pleased to announce that today our membership stands at an all time high.
