Images & Article by Jack McIntyreSeptember 16, 2017: So what did we do today? Took off from Philly at 05:00 and arrived in Brooklyn NY bright and early for the set up of the Indian Larry Motorcycle Grease Monkey Block Party, 2017. This is an example of one of the greatest dedications of fans of the brand Indian Larry, and the generosity of all involved to continually donate to the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation. I walked the event shooting pics & talking with friends & visitors, and the event , as always, provided entertainment from one end to the other as seen in my images below. Motorcycles lined the surrounding streets, with a mix of custom cars, FXR stunt shows, music all day / night, and more. Enjoy the images, visit the Aidan has a Posse website if you can to donate & learn, and come to the party on 2018!
Well as usual, the Indian Larry Grease Monkey Block Party was a blast. A mist the backdrop of beautiful Brooklyn & Manhattan sky line, thousands gathered to support both the Indian Larry brand and charitable organizations. The outdoor grill was pumping out mouth watering smells, the hometown beer brewers were providing the suds. Bands, custom motorcycles everywhere, and oh so much more. I will add further to this post shortly, but until then, enjoy the images, just CLICK HERE.
The Harley-Davidson Motor Company recently donated 6,359 pounds of safety equipment from the plant’s emergency response team to the York County Advanced Technical Rescue (YCATR) team and the York County Fire School. The donation was a partnership to repurpose instead of disposing the materials for scrap or waste. The items will be used by the YCATR and the Fire School for training purposes. Some of the items include an emergency transport vehicle with gurneys and evacuation chair, confined space retrieval system and gear, fire hoses, spill response and decontamination gear and supplies, multi-drawer tool chest, fire safety equipment, plus various tools and hardware.
The safety items were presented to (from left to right) John Sanford, of the YCATR, and Richard Halpin, of the York County Fire School, by Harley-Davidson’s Safety Manager Amy Stout and Environmental Manager Sharon Fisher.
