About This Item

This coin is being released in memory of Tod Phillips--Tod of Team Rod and Tod w/KAboom...the Cachestalkers. Tod died in a motorcycle accident on when a truck turned in front of him and he tried to avoid it. Unfortunately Tod was wearing a novelty helmet that was not DOT approved. A proper helmet may have saved his life. Tod will be fondly remembered by all who knew him.

    A recent email I received, thought it was fitting for this Motorcycle Awareness TB:

    JUST A BIKER

    I saw you; hug your purse closer to you in the grocery store line. But you didn't see me put an extra $20.00 in the collection plate last Sunday.

    I saw you pull your child closer when we passed each other on the sidewalk. But you didn't see me playing Santa at the local Mall.

    I saw you change your mind about going into the restaurant when you saw my bike parked out front. But you didn't see me attending a meeting to raise more money for the hurricane relief.

    I saw you roll up your window and shake your head when I rode by. But you didn't see me riding behind you when you flicked your cigarette butt out the car window.

    I saw you frown at me when I smiled at your children. But you didn't see me, when I took time off from work to run toys to the homeless.

    I saw you stare at my long hair. But you didn't see me and my friends cut ten inches off for Locks of Love.

    I saw you roll your eyes at our Leather jackets and gloves. But you didn't see me and my brothers donate our old ones to those that had none.

    I saw you look in fright at my tattoos. But you didn't see me cry as my children where born or have their name written over and in my heart.

    I saw you change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere. But you didn't see me going home to be with my family.

    I saw you, complain about how loud and noisy our bikes can be. But you didn't see me when you were changing the CD and drifted into my lane.

    I saw you yelling at your kids in the car. But you didn't see me pat my child's hands knowing she was safe behind me.

    I saw you reading the newspaper or map as you drove down the road. But you didn't see me squeeze my wife's leg when she told me to take the next turn.

    I saw you race down the road in the rain. But you didn't see me get soaked to the skin so my son could have the car to go on his date.

    I saw you run the yellow light just to save a few minutes of time. But you didn't see me trying to turn right.

    I saw you cut me off b ecause you needed to be in the lane I was in. But you didn't see me leave the road.

    I saw you, waiting impatiently for my friends to pass. But you didn't see me. I wasn't there..

    I saw you go home to your family. But you didn't see me. Because I died that day you cut me off.

    I was just a biker. A person with friends and a family. But you didn't see me.

    EVEN IF YOU DON'T LIKE US, RESPECT OUR RIGHTS TO RIDE WHAT WE CHOOSE AND TAKE A FEW EXTRA SECONDS TO BE SURE WE ARE NOT IN 'YOUR' WAY

    Attended the Motorcycle Blessing at McKinley Mall today to bless my motorcycle and remember Tod. The event was awesome with over 1000 motorcycles present (my estimate). Weather was slightly cold but well worth the ride. Pictures of the event, TB at the event, and myself are at:

    Thanks again for the opportunity to help remember a fellow motorcyclist and share motorcycle awareness.

    • Me and my bike Here I am holding the TB and sitting on my new vstar 1100.  Enjoyed the event today and hope Tod was able to see it too.
    • One of many One of the many very impressive motorcycles at the 09 Motorcycle blessing.  (attended with "Todie's Wild Ride" TB)
    • 1/3 This is the first third of the crowd in attendance for the event.
    • 2/3 This is the second third of the crowd in attendance for the event.
    • 3/3 This is the last third of the crowd in attendance for the event.
    • The Blessing After a prayer, the motorcycles were blessed as the ride began.  "Gentlemen, start your engines!"

    Found in Enik Returns and plan to take along to Motorcycle Blessing next weekend. Tod will be in my prayers now and at the blessing. Hope all of his friends approve of this. I will be sure to share lots of pictures. Thanks for the opportunity to help increase motorcycle awareness.
