Born to be wild Conquest Rider’s Group takin’ to the streets in Daytona!
Who would have thought… A wheelchair motorcycle group?
When Steppenwolf released Born to be Wild in 1968, along with its use in film classic Easy Rider, it quickly became the anthem of bikers worldwide. But they never could have imagined five riders in wheelchairs cruising the streets of Daytona.
It was the lyrics of Born to be Wild that is often credited with the naming of an entire genre of music, now recognized worldwide by people of all ages as heavy metal:
"I like smoke and lightning, heavy metal thunder,
racing with the wind... and the feeling that I'm under."
Fast Forward to 2012
This coming week, five of our Conquest Rider’s Group (CRG) members will converge in Daytona Florida for Bike Week (March 9-18), one of the largest yearly gatherings of bikers in the United States. In addition to staying in the same hotel and all owning a Mobility Conquest BMW Trike, the group has a series of planned “stops” that will run up and down the coast, culminating in a ride all the way to Jacksonville for a MobilityWorks-HDS Vans client appreciation party. Cruizin' with the CRG to Bike Week events will be MobilityWorks President/CEO Bill Koeblitz and Mobility Conquest National Sales Manager Brian Austin.
Also part of the action will be a fund-raising bike wash, with proceeds going to The MobilityWorks Foundation Rider’s Fund. The Bike Wash will be held at the B.F.F.A.R. (Bikers For First Amendment Rights) located at 745 Ridgewood Ave, Holly Hill FL 32117.
"Yeah, darling, gonna make it happen... take the world in a love embrace."
