here is a service ride update from ALSB. I will not be in attendance, as I am barely learning to walk again, but i will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.


ALEX COSTA TRIBUTE RIDE
Or whatever else you would like to call it. We are riding in remembrance of our fallen brother this Sunday. Everyone is welcome to join, hopefully South Alabama Motorcycle Society will be riding with us. Invite everyone you know who rides, let's get it as big as possible for him.

Meet spot/time: Circle K on Airport and University, 12pm. Stands up at 12:30.

1st stop: Coleman Dairy and Lott Rd. There's a small gas station there, we can grab a drink, gas, smoke break etc. I rode with him on Coleman Dairy and we stopped there first. He wanted to basically safety brief me as I'd never ridden that road before. He also told me he usually stops there for a drink when he's riding out that way, so I'd like to stop there.

2nd stop: Exxon on Water St. The plan is to ride down Coleman Dairy to Cuss Fork (3 way stop, the road ends) and turn around and ride Coleman Dairy back to Lott, then make our way to Exxon. Costa rode with us many times down to that Exxon and spent a fair amount of time hanging out there, plus it was the last place he got to hang out before his accident. I feel the need to stop there because of that. And it will also provide another gas/drink/snack/smoke break.

3rd stop: The cross. It's finally in the ground as of last night. We are going to stop there and if someone wants to say a few words that's fine. He fought in the ICU for 6 days, but due to the severity of his injuries, that's basically where Costa as we knew him left us.


There's Foosackly's, Checker's, Hungry Howies, and a Chinese place right there. If you want to eat at one of those places, cool. At that point we can all kind of chime in and decide where (if anywhere) to go next.



IMPORTANT:

No wheelies, no racing, no trying to drag knees in the corners at 80mph, no acting stupid. Please. This ride is not about who's the fastest, who can walk a wheelie better, or who gets more looks from girls in a car. This ride is about Costa and remembering him, riding those roads he loved so much, and hanging out where he always kicked it with us. Once we hit Firetower and Coleman Dairy, I know a few people will feel the need to rip through them, but please don't. I just want this to be an easy going, safe ride.


If you have any questions PM me on here, or shoot me a text at 251-623-4083.

I want to THANK Hayweed, Crispy and Mobilestromrider for attending EthioKnight's services yesterday. Their appearance was a kind gesture towards honoring our fallen member and his family. It proves the true heartful meaning of a biker. We band together thru thick and thin and value all those involved with our passion! Thanks again guys for representing all of us that could not attend!!!!!

There is a Ethio memorial sticker being offered over on the Ninja250 forums. open to anyone though via paypal

I THINK this is what the basic look will be of the sticker, as there is no image there to verify. ( I understand it will have his name on it?)

http://www.ninjette.org/forums/showthread.php?t=111700

also they put together a great picture memorial page too...

+1 HDCuteT, I really wish I could have gone.


Oh hell.. He would friggin' love those pictures, that is funny!

I can't seem to find a picture of what the stickers look like, are you able to see them? Maybe I need to create an account to see attachments on their board.

What they are doing is awesome
