Nine homemade crosses will stand in a vacant field in South Lubbock all day Saturday — one for each of the motorcyclists killed in Lubbock this year.

Deanna Jandrew and her friends painted white the 7-foot wooden crosses her husband made in the memory of their friend Christy Ann Winters and the other motorcyclists killed.

Nine homemade crosses will stand in a vacant field in South Lubbock all day Saturday — one for each of the motorcyclists killed in Lubbock this year.

Deanna Jandrew and her friends painted white the 7-foot wooden crosses her husband made in the memory of their friend Christy Ann Winters and the other motorcyclists killed.

But the field near 87th Street and University Avenue where Winters died last month won’t be vacant early Saturday afternoon, when hundreds of motorcyclists are expected to gather following a citywide motorcycle awareness ride.

Motorcyclists from all over the region will hit the streets at 11 a.m. Saturday, taking different routes throughout the city without a police escort to let Lubbock know they exist in traffic. They’re scheduled to ride on just about every single major street in Lubbock between 11 a.m. and noon.

“I want everyone in Lubbock to see the bikes so they can see how many are out there,” Jandrew said.

Devastated by the loss of her friend and outraged at the number of mounting motorcycle deaths this year, Jandrew set out on a mission to raise awareness for motorcycles in hopes of preventing future deaths.

“I started this because of Chris (Winters),” she said, but she added it has grown into a cause that she has come to realize is really important to many people and needs to be continued past Saturday’s awareness ride.

The Piano Man Opens Cycle Showroom

Bill Joel is a living legend on Long Island and he has further endeared himself to the motorcyclists with the opening of his own motorcycle showroom in Oyster Bay.

According to published reports Joel doesn’t expect to make a lot of sales, but he hopes to inspire a revitalized motorcycle enthusiasts scene in Long Island, and serve as a showcase for customized and modified bikes. “It reflects the economy right now. People can’t afford to buy expensive stuff. They have to do their own custom work at home in the garage and they have to start with an inexpensive bike. A lot of these bikes are like that,” he told Newsday.


REFUELING BIB PROTECTS BIKES, CARS AND ENVIRONMENT

absorbent pad protects paint during fuel ups

Annoying fuel burps or spills can harm paint, as well as cause pollution and dangerous situations, such as fires if gas drips on a hot engine.  Cleaning it up is another problem, since the insufficient, scratchy paper towels at the station hardly get the job done.  The patented Chadd Padd® provides the perfect solution by catching and containing any spills or overages that may occur at the pump.  The industry’s premier, disposable refueling bib protects motorcycle and car surfaces from hose and nozzle damage.

Originally designed for use on corporate jets, the waterproof Chadd Padd delivers 10″ x 10″ of fuel absorbing power.  Made from clean, soft and absorbent polymers, it is anti-static treated and can hold up to 4.5 oz. of petroleum products.

The Chadd Padd can be used multiple times for a variety of applications.  With a perforated, partial hole design, it accommodates most filler ports for refueling or adding oil.  The pad can also be employed as a drip mat and is even disposable, in accordance with applicable regulations.

The economical Chadd Padd retails for just $9.95 for a convenient 6-pack, while a roll of 36 10″ x 10″ pads is $34.95.  Enter promo code EZFUEL8 at www.chaddpadd.com to save 10%.
