fl flffllags for

fallen military

Photos: Dee James Article: Miranda Jade & Dee James

13 year old Will Jewell of Deep Run NC thought today was going to be like any Summer break day - spending time in the pool, riding around on his 4-wheeler, and checking his friends statuses on Facebook. That was, until he heard the roar of motorcycles coming down his driveway. On July 7th, Flags for Fallen Military, arrived at Will’s home to present him with a flag and flagpole in honor of his father who was lost in Iraq. Will was only 8 years old when his father, SPC. Steven Roy Jewell, died in August of 2007 a month after he arrived in Al Taqqadum, Iraq. He succumbed to his injuries when the Chinook helicopter he was a crew member of crashed. He was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 52nd Aviation Regiment, Task Force 49, Fort Wainwright, Alaska. SPC. Jewell was 26 years old. Flags For Fallen Military is a Minnesota-based organization, whose mission is to provide a lasting honor and tribute to those families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty. Brian Adams, Flags for Fallen Military’s coordinator for North Carolina, started the organization to ensure that the memories of soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice stay fresh in the minds of the family and the public. Though not a military man himself, Brian comes from a military family and thus felt obliged to pay tribute to America’s brave men and women. Vickie Wessel, Will’s grandmother, first heard of the organization through the Internet. From there, she requested the memorial. The flag and flagpole were both provided by Flags For Fallen Military, while a plaque thanking Steven Jewell for “paying the supreme price for freedom for his son Will, and his fellow Americans” was donated by Kinston Memorials. Members of Flags for Fallen Military were not the only ones who showed up to honor Steven Jewell’s memory. Also there was a fleet of motorcycle riders, including members of the Combat Veterans Association, The Patriot Guard Riders, Rolling Thunder NC-1 and more. As an honor, Will Jewell was given a ride by Sgt. Jonathan Tart, son-in-law of Christina Kazakavage of Harnett County. She lost her son, U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Adam K. Ginett, in January of 2010. Thus, she feels deep commiseration with Will, as they both have lost treasured family members to the horrors of war. The ceremony was attended by Will’s relatives, family friends, and elected officials. Will received a pin emblazoned with the Lenoir County seal. His father received a brick in Lenoir County’s “Walk of Honor”, a memorial to all soldiers who have died during wartime that originated in Lenoir County. The efforts of such veteran organizations as well as local veteran tributes ensure that the memories of all who have given their lives will not be forgotten.

Larry "Keith" Walston By: Johnny King

Saying Goodbye

How do you say goodbye to a man that had a heart of gold? How do you say goodbye to a man that was a peacemaker amongst his friends and never met a stranger? On July 24th that is exactly what the family and friends of Larry ‘Keith’ Walston did. Keith, as he was known by family and friends, died unexpectedly in a motorcycle accident on July 20th on his way to a friend’s house. He was a son, brother, father, uncle, and most of all a FRIEND to those that knew him. Keith was the father of 2 kids: Paige and Matthew Walston. Sadly, 3 years ago, he lost his son Matthew in a tragic automobile accident and Keith dealt with the heartache of his loss every day after. He mourned his son quietly, but tried to spend as much time with his daughter, Paige, as he could. They would watch movies; go to Civil War battlefields together, talk about the wars, and just hangout whenever possible. Although there was no wake and the services were at the cemetery only, you could tell Keith was loved by many, as family members, childhood friends, past acquaintances, and fellow bikers converged on Evergreen Cemetery to pay their last respects to their family member and friend.

The bikes lined up at the funeral home with his childhood friend Ricky Tant in the lead followed by Keith’s’ nephew, Bryan Walston. The rest of the pack included members of the Red Devils MC, Tuscarora MC, Freedom Riders MC, Bikers for Christ and CBA. The day was an extremely hot one, and the comment was made that Keith would have complained that they had to pick the hottest day to have the services. There were pictures of Keith with his children and Paige Walston stood up and thanked everyone for coming and paying their respects to her father. That she hoped that with his last breath after the accident that he opened his blue eyes and they were met by the green eyes of her brother Matt welcoming his father home. She would miss her father dearly, but knew he was with her brother, who he had missed so terribly. The services were then turned over to Thumper Dixon, who had seen Keith just a few days before. “Keith knew he was going to heaven,” Thumper told everyone because he always greeted Thumper in the same way, a gesture that only he and Keith knew. As a lone biker cranked his bike and took off, Thumper assured everyone that Keith was riding beside us as we ventured out on the rode on his new Harley riding streets of gold. He would be looking out for all of us that he cared about and loved him. Keith Walston, will be missed by all that knew him and loved him. His family will mourn him and his friends will ride with Keith looking out for them till they all meet him again. He is riding the streets of gold on a brand new Harley now, smiling down on us with his son beside him on his journey through the pearly gates. To the family of Keith I send my deepest condolences, to the Red Devils MC, just remember he is still riding with you, to everyone else we all have a new guardian angel looking out for us where ever we go. Keith was a special man to many in many ways but to me he was my FRIEND…. Rest in Peace My Friend…

In the United States Glucosamine is the best selling complementary therapy for osteoarthritis. Most of the time glucosamine is paired with chondroitin. Glucosamine and chondroitin are a part of normal healthy cartilage. Cartilage is the cushion between the joints. The combination of dietary supplements helps to build cartilage. Chondroitin can come from natural sources, such as shark or bovine cartilage, or it can be made in the lab. Chondroitin is also known as chondroitin sulfate, chondroitin sulfuric acid, and chonsurid. Chondroitin sulfate is a combination of chondroitin and mineral salt. This combination of dietary supplements is said to help with pain, mobility, and the quality of life for the user. It takes about four to six weeks for a person to see and feel the results from this combination of supplements.

Blue Knights NC XIII

Homegrown Heroes/ Fallen Officer Memorial Ride June 16th, 2012 was a bittersweet day for the Blue Knights NC XIII. On one hand, they hosted an outstanding event, but on the other hand, their cause stayed close to their minds. June 16th saw the Second Annual Homegrown Heroes/ Fallen Officer Memorial Ride take place. The event had an amazing turnout of 115 motorcycles carrying 143 people. The group rode 70 miles, ending up at the Retired Military Association in Elizabethtown, where they wolfed down lunch prepared by Beef O’Brady’s. The goal of this particular ride was to raise money for two different organizations – North Carolina Concerns of Police Survivors (NC C.O.P.S.) and the Wounded Warriors Project. NC C.O.P.S. helps people who have close connections to officers killed in duty rebuild their lives through donations and support. The organization was founded in 1984 and has gone on to aid hundreds of North Carolina cops. The equally admirable goal of the Wounded Warriors Project is to help rehabilitate servicemen and women who have incurred mental or physical illnesses on or after September 11th, 2001. Though both agencies are operated at a national level, grassroots chapters of these organizations can be found in North Carolina. By donating or otherwise pledging support to them, you can make a difference in a serviceman or woman’s heart – or even life. All told, $1000 each was awarded to each agency, thanks to the Blue Knights’ efforts. Notable attendees of the event were Michael J. Brown Sr., President of Blue Knights NC XIII, Chaplain William McCoy, LTC Michael Johns, Provost Marshall, XVIII Airborne Corp and Fort Bragg, Mrs. Catherine Callemyn, President, NC C.O.P.S., and SGT Hunt, NC State Highway Patrol. The ride honored many fallen heroes, but in particular brought attention to the tragic death of Bladen County’s Deputy Sheriff Dwayne Charles Hester. Survived by his wife and two daughters, Mr. Hester was laid to rest the Wednesday prior to the Blue Knights event. Two other heroes mentioned were Officer Charles Callemyn and Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Matthews, who both met unexpected fates while in the line of duty. Indeed, a bittersweet day for the Blue Knights NC XIII. With the names of fallen heroes refreshed in their memory, the organization still pressed forward with donations to supportive agencies, reminding everyone that, despite such great losses, life still goes on.

1st Annual Charity Ride/Block Party To benefit GIVE KIDS THE WORLD The story of Give Kids the World begins with a little girl with a wish and the desire of one man to make that wish come true. The little girl’s name was Amy. Amy had leukemia and one wish to visit the theme parks in Orlando. To facilitate Amy’s wish, the request of a complimentary stay was made to a respected hotelier. As he had done many times before, the hotelier gladly obliged and Amy’s wish was that much closer to being realized. Sadly the remainder of Amy’s travel plans took too long to arrange and her wish was never granted. Amy had passed away. Time simply ran out. This unfulfilled wish inspired a man, the hotelier, to make a vow that NO child in need would ever be failed again. That man was Henri Landwirth and his desire to ensure that Amy’s story would never repeat itself is where the story of Give Kids the World begins. Today the village is a 70 acre resort complete with over 140 villa accommodations, entertainment attractions, whimsical venues and fun specifically designed for children with special needs. With YOUR help and the help of many generous individuals, corporations and partnering wish-granting organizations, Give the Kids the World has welcomed more than 115,000 families from all 50 states and over 70 countries. With your help today we can add another family to provide a memorable magical, no cost experience to children with life threatening illnesses and their families. On September 15, 2012 from 11am-4pm Candlewood Suites in conjunction with Cape Fear Harley-Davidson is hosting a Charity Ride/Block party. Various levels of sponsorship and participation are available. We are also seeking vendors, door prizes and donations. We are available to discuss options and to pick up your contributions and donations.

NCDBA 1st Annual Poker Run (North Carolina Deaf Blind Associates) June 9th, 2012 The day was perfect for our 1st poker run….not too hot! Cycle Max of Wilson was gracious enough to host our first stop! The NCDBA representatives were out there assisting with registration, talking with riders, and selling t-shirts “Don’t Tread on Me”. Also, the Wilson Regional Center, a division of the Department of Deaf and Hard of Hearing through the Department of Health and Human Services, came out and set up tables with literature and equipment relating to Deaf and Deaf Blind. One of their missions is to spread awareness through our community of the services they offer. People started arriving at Cycle Max around 8:30 am to begin registration. Individuals from many of the surrounding counties participated! We had a total of 35 motorcycles to participate, with approximately 10-12 with an extra rider. The Marines Motorcycle Club of South Carolina led the pack to each stop as traffic control. They made it SO EASY for all us to continue on as a group! Thanks guys! Our first stop was at Plan B of Smithfield. We were welcomed by a great group of people. Everyone stuck around to socialize and to quench our thirsts! Our next stop was to Pastimes of Clayton. Caught some shade on the back patio area, had drinks, shot the sh*t, relaxed a bit, and had a great time. The next stop was to Locked & Loaded of Garner. We were all hungry by this point and ready to eat some wonderful food! We filled our bellies, chilled, checked out other motorcycles, and chatted for close to 2 hours before heading to our next stop. We finally moved along to our final stop…… 97 Roadhouse of Wendell. Waiting for us was a pig pickin,’ the All My Rowdy Friends band, door prizes, and the soon-to-be determined final winners of the poker run! We had a HUGE crowd out there! Our first poker run was a success! We did have a few quirks but that was to be expected. Next year will be a lot better and will go a lot smoother! We hope everyone will join us again next year and bring more friends with them! Thank you riders for your participation and support to this fundraiser! The NCDBA would like to thank all of our volunteers, Marines Motorcycle Club of SC, Cycle Max, Plan B, Locked & Loaded, Pastimes, 97 Roadhouse, and all of our donators for your support and items that were given for this event! We could not have pulled this off without the help of every single person! We look forward to seeing everyone again and new friends next year!

8th Annual Biker and Community

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Rally (GBU) was hosted by Wayne County Bikers For Christ and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Biker Church. This Rally was held on July 14, 2012 at the Rosewood Worship Center in Goldsboro, North Carolina. A special thanks to Rosewood Worship Center congregation and their Pastor Lynn Epps for letting us use their fine church. There were GREAT bands, Soloists, a Bike Show, Poker Run, Free Hotdogs, Fantastic Fellowship and lots of Fun. The bands/soloist that participated were Brutha Boogie, Walking by Faith Gospel Group, South River Band and Defenders of the Cross Band. They all gave a wonderful Christ centered presentations about faith in Jesus. Special Guests were Pastor Fred Zariczny (Rev Z), the founder of Bikers For Christ from San Diego, California and Pastor Fred Gorini (Pastor G) from Daytona, Florida, who is the South Eastern Regional Elder of Bikers For Christ. Rev Z flew in on Tuesday the 11th and stayed until Monday the 18th. Pastor G from Florida was the special speaker at the GBU and shared about when to sit, stand and walk on for Jesus. Powerful, encouraging words we all appreciated hearing. Many M/C Clubs, R/C Clubs, and M/M came to GBU and the brotherhood of respect and love for all was present. Vendors were there to share their products and enjoy the fellowship and fun as well. It is great to see what is available and talk to the people whose hearts are in what they do. Now Saturday may have been the GBU rally but BFC, Rev Z as well as Elder Gilbert Baker (Rev G), from the GBU Biker Church, were busy riding and ministering to downed bikers, hospitalized bikers, and even did a television taping to be broadcast later. There is never a dull moment when the brothers get together. The television taping was at WRAY-TV 30 in Wilson, North Carolina. Rev Z , Rev G, State Elder Terryl Parry (Tap) and North East Regional Elder Tim Fontaine shared their personal testimonies and how Jesus changed their lives and has helped them overcome the alcohol, drugs, and other things they wanted to let go. About 20 BFC brothers, sisters and friends went to the studio to support them. On Sunday Rev Z spoke at Rosewood Worship Center morning service and shared his heart. It is always good to hear his teaching on the Word of God. BFC and GBU’s focus is to reach out to Bikers, it does not matter who you are. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Biker Church meets on Sunday at 10 am at Rev G’s garage to share the love of Jesus and fellowship. Feel free to contact Rev G at HD4Jesus@nc.rr.com if you have any questions or need to talk to someone.

Brewery tours only happen every 2nd Saturday of the month at 2pm. and even though we missed it by a few days, one of the Big Boss masterbrewers gave us the “Grand Tour!” The 30-minute tour takes you through our entire facility where you will learn about Big Boss’s beer-making process. And afterward you can try a few sample brews for $1 each (limit three). The tour is free and no reservations are required. Please allow extra time for parking. Private tours are available in the evenings during the week. For availability, contact Jesse, the bar manager : jesse@bigbossbrewing.com

ahhhh...sample the perfection! Big Boss Brewing Company was started in 2006 and shipped it first beer in the 2nd quarter of 2007 in the triangle area of North Carolina. It was formed as collaboration between Geoff Lamb, a UNC graduate, who returned to North Carolina in 2006 to join forces with Brewmaster, Brad Wynn, who has 12+ years of brewing experience including several years with Victory, Wild Goose and Native Brewing Company.

Been There, S

Iron Mutt Ri

By: Chewy (Biker Dog)

Christi presents my custom bandana and a dog tag to Will, son of SPC Steven Jewell, KIA in Afghanistan

During our travels, a lot of people tell us they support our military and their families. When there is an opportunity to show action behind those words at a funeral or memorial service for a Fallen Hero, why is it that most of the attendees are “strangers on steel horses” and a few people who aren’t bikers? Recently, when people thank my driver for his service, he replies with something like “It was an honor, but what have you done to honor and respect our Fallen Heroes, our military and our veterans?” The most common response is “Uhhhhhh…” It seems to boil down to people’s priorities. Honoring our Fallen and their families is a low priority for most Americans, or so it seems from our perspective. On August 14, 2007, SPC Steven R. Jewell, US Army, gave the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq. He left behind a wife and a child. In July, Flags for Fallen Military held a flag dedication ceremony in honor of SPC Jewell. My driver and I were unsure if we would be attending because my driver had a medical procedure to his neck and left shoulder. A friend, Christi (Gold Star Mother of Adam Ginett, TSgt, USAF EOD, KIA 19 January 2010), told us that Will (SPC Jewell’s son, now 13) was to receive and raise the US flag at the ceremony. Although my driver was in pain and could not lift his left arm, he decided to take me on the Harley to Deep Run, NC to honor SPC Jewell and to meet Will. Family, friends of the family, and “strangers on steel horses” were present. We had representatives from Patriot Guard Riders, American Legion Riders, Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association, Southern Cruisers, Rolling Thunder, and a few others. There were members of Freedom Biker Church among the “strangers on steel horses.” Christians preach the way to salvation and they preach to spread the gospel and minister to people. There are several places in the Bible where God and His Son tell us to care for the widows and fatherless children (some translations say orphans). When there’s an opportunity to comfort grieving spouses and children, we see a number of Christian bikers and Christian motorcycle-related organizations, but where are the churches?


ICE CREAM! The USO held an event in Cary called Scoops for Troops. It was the first of this event and we could see that Patricia DeZetter and USO volunteers put a lot of planning and effort into this event to show appreciation to our military. It was hot and humid, but there was a great turnout! Lumpy’s ice cream gave me a free cup of ice cream to cool my tongue; he knew how to get to my heart. At Scoops for Troops, we talked with founders of an organization that got our attention: Wags 4 Tags. Similar to Patriot Rovers, they rescue dogs, train them, and then assign them to a veteran or military service member as trained companion dogs or psychological service dogs. W4T rescues nearly any breed from “kill shelters” and, like me, the doggies have a chance to help someone and be in a forever home. Although I am now retired (sort of), my driver and I plan to meet with W4T to see if there are ways that we can help.

We barked with representatives of Wags 4 Tags at the USO Scoops for Troops

Sniffed That

Rides Again Brian Volk of Guardian Brotherhood is 1 of 5 who completed all three Charlie Mikes

We did it again – another IronButt (Saddlesore 1,000). Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association NC 15-1 held Charlie Mike III on August 3-4 and rode 1,000 miles in 24 hours in honor of those who served in World War II. Charlie Mike is phonetic for the letters CM, which means “continue the mission.” CMIII started at the Harnett County Veterans Memorial in Lillington, then went to USS Yorktown (Charleston, SC), USS North Carolina (Wilmington, NC), USS Wisconsin (Norfolk, VA), a section of the WWII Memorial Highway in Richmond, and ended at the Airborne Special Operation Museum in Fayetteville. CVMA submits all of the documentation to the IronButt Association on behalf of the riders. There are four bikers and a passenger who completed the three Charlie Mikes: QuietMan, Wizard, Brian Volk, my driver and me (the passenger). It was humid, but as long as we were rolling, it felt OK. We left Lillington at about 1030. We had fuel stops every 100 miles. Everyone reset their trip odometer at each fuel stop. If anyone got separated from the group, they knew to ride until they reached 100 miles since the last fuel stop, then go to a gas station at the next exit. We arrived at the USS Yorktown at about 1500 (3pm). We were in stop-n-go traffic on US-17 in Myrtle Beach, which was typical for Friday evening.


Quietman - 3 Charlie Mikes and Boom - 2 Charlie Mikes led the way during Charlie Mike III.

Wizard (3 Charlie Mikes) flying the US flag and WWII flag on the last leg of Charlie Mike III In Georgetown, we encountered some careless people in cars. Jim and Christi (their second Charlie Mike and the parents of Adam Ginett, TSgt, USAF, KIA 18 Jan 2010, Afghanistan) were nearly taken out by a car as we turned into a gas station. Leaving the gas station, Wizard, Schmuck, my driver and I were nearly taken out by a lady driving a blue SUV. We were on a four lane road and she was drifting among the lanes. My driver and I caught up with her and rode alongside her for about 20 seconds – we watched her with her head down the entire time while she was texting. WTB? (What the bark?) We accelerated to get clear of her. About a minute later, we saw blue lights in our rear view mirror. She was caught! Krzywuf drove from Lillington to US-17 near Ocean Isle to intercept us and take pictures and video as we rode north on US-17. We arrived at the USS North Carolina at about 8pm. We stopped for a few photos, then rode to Goldsboro. My driver’s neck and left shoulder was in pain, which was caused when he and I were hit while on our Harley in September 2009. He thought about aborting when we arrived in Goldsboro, but we were carrying a special flag for Ed “TailGunner” Williams, who went to be with our Lord earlier this year. Ed rode in Charlie Mike II, but his bike had an electrical problem and could not finish the ride. God had other plans for Ed.

I had a bad helmet day on Charlie Mike III (Photo by Mike ’Krzywuf’ Wilson)


Been There, Sniffed That In Goldsboro, my driver decided to “continue our mission.” We arrived in Goldsboro at 10pm and had a few extra minutes for a quick dinner. CVMA VA 27 met us east of Emporia, VA and led us to the USS Wisconsin in Norfolk, arriving at about 1:45am. While enroute from Norfolk to Richmond, my driver had a glimpse of an object flying by to the right of his head. It happened so quickly that he didn’t have time to react or get a good view of the object or critter. When we refueled in Richmond, we realized that our Honor and Remember flag was gone. We think the object hit our center flag and snapped our flag pole at the base. Wizard told us he saw something slide by him on the pavement, but didn’t know what it was at the time. Sadly, that Honor and Remember flag was to be presented to the Dogwood Chapter of the American Gold Star Mothers. That flag was on two rides across the USA in honor of Fallen Heroes and it was on its second Charlie Mike. After crossing into North Carolina, other CVMA bikers and friends linked up with us along the way. We arrived at the Airborne Special Operations Museum located in Fayetteville at about 9:45am, completing about 1,060 miles within 24 hours. This specific mission was completed. If you want to see more pictures, please visit my Facebook page. If you’re interested in participating in the next Charlie Mike, you can watch for the event announcement in Facebook next summer.

a hero behind the heroes Jeremy Baker

There are many organizations that herald American soldiers as heroes. Too often, however, the men and women behind these organizations go unrecognized, generally because such men and women don't do what they do for the recognition - they do it for the troops. Here's a closer look at one of the heroes behind the heroes, a man named Jeremy Baker. When asked about his involvement in soldier care initiatives, he said, "Well, I didn't really get involved until about four years ago. Until then, I only sent some care packages now and then. But then, I had a close friend get deployed to Afghanistan. When he got home, he talked about how some of his buddies (especially some of the young ones without close family) weren't hearing their names called during mail call. Though the soldiers who did get a lot of care packages shared the loot with their friends, the young soldiers still felt neglected." Jeremy sensed that there was a need to give back to the troops - to all of them. As a member of the organization “Soldier’s Angels”, Jeremy signed up for their card groups, and what he calls his “Card Ministry” was born. In 2011, with the help of the Gold Star Mothers and Hot Rodz, an unbelievable 7,000 cards made their way overseas. Jeremy never expects anything back for his efforts; however, the letters and cards he does receive are very special to him. He even received a Navy challenge coin as a “thank you”.


Written By: Miranda Jade Photos By: Dee ‘OneMore’ James

In 2010, Jeremy joined a more local organization that he could be more hands on with, called "Operation Helping Hands for Heroes". In 2011, Jeremy joined another local initiative called the "Patriot Guard Riders". At their events, he sells hand crafted patriotic jewelry and donates the proceeds. He even created a patriotic card initiative within "OHHH" called "Operation Thank You". When asked earlier in 2012 to become a board member of "OHHH", Jeremy accepted the position with honor. It could be said that the patriotic spirit flows through his veins. He says, "Being able to stand (or in my case wheelchair) in a flag line to honor our heroes is very touching and honorable! Even though I am a part of OHHH & Patriot Guard Riders I still do a lot “on my own” so to speak because that’s just who I am. I just want to show our Soldiers as much as I can they are loved, honored and supported!" Many lonely soldiers who have received his cards believe that Jeremy is, too, a hero.

Ride for babies June 16th, 2012, the

Fed-Ex Team in association with Hometown HarleyDavidson in Winterville, NC, held their “Ride for Babies.� Approximately 200 bikers and 21 Corvette Club members turned out and showed their support for this much needed charity event. All proceeds collected were donated to the March of Dimes organization. With a Police escort, the Bikers and Corvette drivers cruised for about an hour, covering about 30 miles of beautiful Pitt County country side. Upon their return, some of the best hot dogs and hamburgers were served to everyone that attended this event. A raffle was held, and many great door prizes and chances to win HD gear were offered. A free concert was also held, and I must say,

the band, Bald Fury brought down the house. As always, the Hometown HD crew was on hand to provide the best customer service you can find. You guyz and galz rock. Everyone at Hometown HD and the Fed Ex Team, send out a great big THANK YOU, for everyone that came out to support this event and make it a success.

Big Bike Lights

If you are wanting that extra something to make your scooter stand out, head on over to see Don Gardner in Goldsboro, NC, at Big Bike Lights. I just had several LED light kits installed on my Harley Fat Boy - all controlled by remote. I am telling you, it sure makes my bike stand out! I have had alot of compliments on how good my bike looks with the LED lights on. The service is great and Don was very appreciative of my business. He made sure that everything was in working order and that I knew how to work the lights before I left. So, if you are looking for a little extra BLING on your motorcycle, car, truck or boat, give Don a call at: 1-888-652-1722, and he will get the job done and done right.
