ARK!! ARK!! Sorry it has been so long since Papa and I updated you. As some of you already know, Papa and I Crashed on the Sturgis Drag Strip while setting another world record. (We did before we crashed 68.6 MPH on the 1/8th mile track.) Papa wanted to do at least 100MPH so he foolishly asked if he could borrow a Ninja from a really great man. He said yes.... On Papa's practice run, Papa crashed with me on his shoulder at approximately 70 MPH. I flew off like I was trained to do, but Papa broke his collar bone and shoulder bone. He got a lot of road rash on his legs,arms and shoulders. Papa being Papa, he walked out of the hospital that same night. He returned to our hotel room and slept for two days and we drove back as far as NY where His daughter and her Husband to be met us. Papa slept the rest of the way home. Papa is almost healed and ready to take me on a few beach rides. See you all on the road..
Next up, Since Papa crashed on his second day at Sturgis, we only collected $118.00 in donations. However, I would like to share that $100.00 of this was from 4 $20.00 and 2 $10.00 donations. THANK YOU ALL. It was a pleasure meeting everyone. Papa hopes to return to the Sturgis dragway again.
On another note, Papa was told by Peter Macdonald founder of Tiny Homes for American Heroes, that a lady that met Papa and I at Rolling Thunder this year and promised she would make a donation when she got home. (never happened before) Well she not only made a donation she made the largest single donation we have every received from a private person. $1500.00 YES!! ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS.. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.. To this amazing, generous person.
Next up: Papa received a portable breathing system from Phil G. See the Pictures below of Quinn receiving it.
Thank you Phil for this fantastic life saving donation.
The following picture is Quinn with his New Portable Oxygen System Donated by Phil G. THANK YOU Phill.
