Current GOAL

The original coin went missing.  So we have sent out a Proxy to keep this one alive.  It is being sent out to raise awareness of bikes on the road! Please remember that we on the motorcycles (or even the pedal bikes) have just as much right as anyone else, but MUCH less protection! Please check your mirrors before changing lanes, look both ways and pay closer attention when making a turn onto or off of a roadway, we might be there! It only takes one hurried move, one careless push of the gas. When you begin to pull out, if we are coming and see you, we must make a split-second decision...that decision could be life or death! Tod didn't hit anyone, the truck stopped before pulling all the way into his lane...this didn't matter as Tod had already committed himself to braking. Once committed, there's no way to stop the chain of events which will follow. Please don't make us commit, watch for us and help protect us as we travel.

About This Item

DSC00092

In loving memory of Todie Phillips! Tod, 1/3 of Team Rod & Tod w/KAboom was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident when a motorist pulled into his lane unexpectedly. Tod (as we have surmised) likely locked his brakes and skidded sideways until he perceived he was safe to disengage the brake and resume. Unfortunately, when in a skid, bikes usually tend to skip if the brake is released (as I learned at the funeral services). Tod likely released the brake (just a speculation), the bike jumped and then grabbed before flipping several times...Tod rode it to the end! This accident was needless, the driver merely needed look and would have seen Tod there. This usally happens because of people being in a hurry. PLEASE take your time and help us arrive safely! This is a coin with a item we attatched with them to start a journey in a race for Todie's Wild Ride, please do not keep these as we mentioned they are in a race and move them as quickly as you can to and from a cache. This is a race to help raise Bike Awareness all around the world. We had a dear friend that was killed in a Motorcycle accident and we are doing this in the rememberance of him and want people to drive more saftety when they see a bike on the road.
