On Thursday August 4th, with the help of the Law Tigers, America’s Motorcycle Injury Lawyers, retired Fire Department Fire Captain Bill Aviles will scratch off another item off his long bucket list by entering the Hoka Hey Motorcycle challenge.
After almost 32 years working for the Fire Department, Bill retired on October 31, 2010. During that time, he was assigned to the Operations Division and participated on the FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Team. He has been exposed and participated in many challenging activities and situations. None have been as interesting and physically challenging as the 2011 Hoka Hey Challenge.
The top prize is $250,000 along with a new 2012 Harley-Davidson CVO of their choice. Bill intends on donating 10% of any net winnings to children’s sporting organizations along with fire department family survivor’s funds.
This year’s event will begin in Phoenix, Arizona and travel through all forty-eight contiguous States and Canada to Nova Scotia. The route will travel 10,000+ miles. The route includes 13 checkpoints and will end in Sydney Nova Scotia. The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge is open to riders of all Harley-Davidson® motorcycles.
All competitors will have a GPS tracking device installed on their motorcycles and must follow a predetermined route. Deviation from the route or traffic violations will result in disqualification.
