Roland Sands Custom Motorcycle | Ride for Kids

Custom Honda CBR1000RR

Rick James of Carrollton, Texas, has won the annual Ride for Kids / International Motorcycle Shows bike drawing. His new ride is The Mission, a 2008 Honda CBR1000RR donated by American Honda and customized by master designer Roland Sands.

"I’m on cloud nine," James said when notified of his win. The 52-year-old motorcyclist has been out of work for several months, and says that winning the drawing "might just turn my luck around."

James purchased two drawing tickets last November at the International Motorcycle Show in Dallas. A friend had invited him to the show to take his mind off of his job situation. "I will definitely be back," James said. "I’ll be the one with the big grin on my face!"

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF) randomly drew James’ name from more than 18,000 entries earlier this month. The drawing generated over $78,000 to benefit the PBTF, which runs the Ride for Kids program. Now in its ninth year, the giveaway has raised more than $502,000 overall.
