He Rides For Grandson With Rare Genetic Syndrome

What would make a 70-year-old man ride his Harley-Davidson 3,800 miles across America? Simple: To help his grandson and other children born with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS), a little known genetic syndrome that causes a range of medical, physical and cognitive challenges for those born with it.

Ken Fouts, a retired Emmy-award winning sports director, loves his 2008 Harley-Davidson Softail Heritage and his grandson, Adrian, so what better way to honor both than by riding across the country Adrian’s Ride 2011 aims to raise money for the national CdLS Foundation and awareness of the syndrome. An estimated 20,000 men, women and children have CdLS but remain undiagnosed and/or without support services.
Fouts plans to start his three-week, 20-state trek from Saint Anselm College in Adrian’s hometown of Manchester, NH, on national CdLS Awareness Day, May 14. It’s also the day after Adrian’s 17th birthday. CdLS families from the New England region and upwards of 100 members of the Manchester HOG chapter will be on hand to celebrate Awareness Day and send Fouts off. An Abbott from the college will bless Fout’s bike.
After, Fouts will travel to the coast and collect water from the Atlantic Ocean to pour into the Pacific when he arrives in San Francisco three weeks later. Motorcycle riders are encouraged to join him along his cross-country ride, whether for a few miles or a few hundred.
Anyone interested in joiningAdrian’s Ride 2011, or donating to the cause, can call the CdLS Foundation at 800-223-8355 or email events@CdLSusa.org.
Updates on Fouts’ ride will be posted on the CdLS Foundation’s blog, found at www.CdLSus.org.
About CdLS
CdLS is a genetic syndrome that occurs in about 1 in 10,000 births. Common medical problems include gastroesophageal reflux, bowel obstruction, hearing loss, and congenital heart defects. Although individuals with CdLS range from mildly to severely affected, most have similar physical characteristics: small size, hands and feet; thin eyebrows that meet in the middle; long eyelashes; upturned nose; and thin, downturned lips. Some individuals have limb differences, including missing fingers or arms, and partial joining of the toes.
About the CdLS Foundation
Founded in 1981, the CdLS Foundation is a family support organization that exists to ensure early and accurate diagnosis of CdLS, promote research into the causes and manifestations of the syndrome, and help people with a diagnosis of CdLS make informed decisions throughout their lifetime. For more information, call 800-753-2357 or go to www.CdLSusa.org.

 

New H-D Seat is Vintage Yet Practical

The new Distressed Brown Leather Badlander® Seat ($479.95) is one of several items recently added to the Distressed Brown Leather Collection from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories. The Badlander® seat offers a low-and-lean, frame-hugging profile, now covered in rich, brown leather that has the warm feel of a well-worn bomber jacket. The individual leather panels are seamed together into a pattern that resembles a vintage western saddle, and the supple, untreated surfaces will age and develop character marks with every mile. Matching leather grab strap is included. The Distressed Brown Leather Badlander Seat is offered for many Harley-Davidson® Softail®, Touring and Sportster® models.

 

Other new items in the Distressed Brown Leather Collection include a Passenger Backrest Pad (P/N 52300026, $119.95), Short Passenger Backrest Pad (P/N 52300028, $159.95), and a Tank Panel (P/N 70900103, $59.95). Each is styled to complement Distressed Brown Leather seats and saddlebags. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for fitment details.

New Accessories from Harley-Davidson

Swingarm Bag, Speedo/Tach Combo, Curved License Plate Holder and Soft Grips

Softail® Swingarm Bag

(P/N 90200417 Black Smooth Leather, P/N 90200456 Brown Distressed Leather; $179.95) from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories is shaped to accent the shape of the Harley-Davidson Softail® swingarm. Constructed of heavyweight leather, the bag features a pouch-style flap lid, secured with two quick-disconnect clips that are hidden behind traditional straps and buckles. The semi-rigid-backed bag is secured to the left side of the swingarm with easy-to-install, adjustable quick-release straps. Capacity is 400 cubic inches, enough room for essentials that might otherwise be stuffed into pockets or bungeed to a passenger pillion. Fits 2000-later Softail® models (except Rocker/C and CVO models).

 

Combination Analog Speedometer/Tachometer

(P/N 70900070, $299.95) from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories monitors engine speed without adding a handlebar-mounted tach. The speedometer and tachometer pointers sweep clockwise over a spun-aluminum face to provide a “gauge within a gauge” look. Push-button adjustable backlighting offers more than 600 color-tone options, to adjust pointer, LCD and backlighting colors to match any paint scheme or viewing preference. The LCD information screen displays odometer/tripmeter data, miles-to-empty readings, a segmented fuel display, and a gear-position indicator. The unit mounts in the stock dash opening and is a direct plug-in installation. Kit includes a data transfer cable to upload initial mileage at time of installation.   This Combination Analog Speedometer/Tachometer fits 2009-later Dyna®, 2008-2010 Softail®, and 2008-later Road King® models equipped with a 5-inch Speedometer. Combination Analog Speedometer/Tachometer (P/N 70900171 $259.95) fits 2011 Softail models equipped with a 5-inch speedometer. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for fitment details.

 

Curved License Plate Frame

($79.95) from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories is shaped to hug the contour of the rear fender. Designed to replace the original-equipment black license plate bracket, installation requires no drilling or rewiring. The front frame cover conceals the plate’s mounting holes and raw edges, and the curved shape hides the unfinished rear side of the plate. Available in chrome or gloss-black finish, the complete kit includes all required mounting hardware. It fits many 2006-later Touring models, 2005-later Softail Deluxe and 2005-‘07 Softail Springer Classic models. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for fitment details.

 

Get-A-Grip™ Hand Grips

($79.95) from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories feature a tactified rubber surface for a superior connection to the controls in wet or dry weather. The soft-touch, cross-hatched rubber surface feels good against both gloved and bare skin. The “thicker in the middle” profile and choice of standard or magnum diameter mean these grips will fit comfortably in almost any size hand. Select the mirror-chrome or gloss-black finish to accent a personal customizing plan. The easy-to-install “glueless” design allows the grips to be removed for service without damage.

Get-A-Grip™ Hand Grips are available in standard or magnum diameter, with black or chrome trim, to fit 1996-later VRSC™, XL, XR, Dyna®, and Softail® models, and 1997- later Touring and Trike models.
