Motorcycle club plans ride day to benefit
Royal Enfield dealership that burned

A Suzuki pit bike will be among the raffle prizes at a benefit "ride day" Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Dayton (Ohio) Motorcycle Club. The event benefits KRW Cycles, the motorcycle shop and Royal Enfield dealership destroyed by fire Labor Day weekend.

"Riding starts at noon, dinner will be at 5 p.m., then hang around for some live music from Life Behind Bars," wrote rider James Reed, of Covington, Ohio, who listed KRW as one of his sponsors.

"Please come out for the ride day to have some fun and help out those great people at KRW who have helped out so many racers, riders and clubs over the years," he wrote.

The Dayton Motorcycle club is located at 3515 Stoney Hollow Rd. in Dayton. Get directions.

Owned by the Bapaille family, KRW Cycles was burned out of the Phillipsburg, Ohio building where it had done business for 42 years. Destruction was complete. There was no insurance.

KRW Cycles was one of the very early Royal Enfield dealerships of the modern era. Among the loses was a Royal Enfield being built for a speed record attempt at Bonneville.

If you can't make it to Dayton, Ohio this weekend, consider writing a check to the fund that has been set up for KRW at the Fifth Third Bank to help KRW Cycles. To donate, make your check out to KRW Cycles, put the word "Donation" in the memo line and mail it to:
