Accident Scene Management Inc. (ASMI), a national provider of training for motorcycle safety related classes, and Road Guardians, a program aimed at reducing injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists by promoting safety on the road, announced it will team with Women in Motion and former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson to host his 16th annual Reunion Ride.
The ride comes home to the Midwest July 22-25, 2010. This year, a group of female "Road Guards" called Women In Motion Roadguardians will combine the annual fundraiser that they hold for ASMI with Tommy’s Ride.
Tommy Thompson started an annual motorcycle ride when he was Governor of Wisconsin. A well known and popular public servant, Tommy Thompson left his position as Governor after 14 years when he was asked to serve as secretary of Health and Human services. Though he left public life in 2001, Tommy Ride’s continued through the efforts of Accident Scene Management, Inc. (ASMI).
While Tommy’s rides have been week long events that have taken the group across country to New York City, Niagara Falls, North Carolina, and New Hampshire to name a few, this year Tommy’s ride will start in Madison, Wisconsin with a kickoff party hosted by the CC Riders Motorcycle Club and Angelo’s restaurant on Wednesday, July 21, 2010. General Public is invited to attend for a $10.00 cover charge.
The ride departs from the Howard Johnsons in Madison, WI on Thursday July 22nd, and will cross three states concluding on July 25th in Phillips, Wisconsin. Day one includes stops at Kutter Harley-Davidson in Monroe, WI, Harley-Davidson of Galena, IL for lunch and Clinton Harley-Davidson and Best Western Frontier in Clinton, Iowa, where they have rolled out the red carpet.
They are hosting dinner and a Bike Night community event with music by "Bones" a popular Classic Rock band. Day two includes stops at Dubuque Harley-Davidson, Pike’s Peak State Park. Two Brothers Honda and Happy Joes Pizza in La Crosse, Wisconsin will host an evening meal.
We will then gather at the Best Western in La Crosse at River Jacks for music by Schnidr and Mike Jones who is a special guest on our ride. Mike Jones is a songwriter and movie producer from Arizona who produced "1903 yesteryear" and "Live to Ride".
He is launching the release of his new CD "Road Dreams" on our ride. Day three, Saturday, July 24th, the ride moves on to Rockton with stops at the Wildthings Fur Company, a popular motorcycle accessory destination. It continues to Sport Harley-Davidson in Chippewa Falls for lunch and then concludes in Phillips, Wisconsin where Steve’s Service Center and Club 13 Restaurant and Bar will entertain us with a meal and music.

Breakfast and massages make this stop a must as participants gather to say their good byes to new friends.
