Ride for Kids Roland Sands Design Honda CBR1000RR

A hooligan Honda built to fight pediatric brain tumors.

Cycle World

Nine years ago, the team from Ride for Kids joined us at the Cycle World International Motorcycle Shows to give away a project bike to raise awareness and money for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and, hopefully, help find a cure for children suffering from brain tumors.

From the start, American Honda and show producer Advanstar Communications offered amazing generosity and unwavering support for the project. American Honda has provided several of the giveaway motorcycles and logistical support for all of them. Advanstar has provided show space, promotion and logistical support, as well. This year, these partners and others have come together to create an absolute show-stopper. Starting with a 2009 Honda CBR1000RR, the talented crew at Roland Sands Design is creating the ultimate streetfighter to pay homage to the toughest little fighters around--kids battling brain tumors. Inspiration for the build came from CW's screaming-yellow Honda CBR900RR project bike seen in the April, 1994, issue.

Watch for updates on the progress of the build because you will soon be able to purchase tickets for $5 (or five for $20) at one of the 11 Cycle World International Motorcycle shows (see schedule) or at www.rideforkids.org. All proceeds go directly to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's medical research and family support programs.

Ride for Kids, together with your generosity, gives kids the opportunity to overcome this devastating disease. So, drop some cash and pick up a chance--or five--to win the Cycle World project Honda CBR1000RR by RSD and give special kids a fighting chance.
