Temecula Rally a Huge Success!
We're back at again!  On our way to The Buffalo Chip and Sturgis.  Today, July 31, is the first day of
our excellent adventure, starting with a rally at 3 Brothers Racing of Temecula.  About 50 people
attended.  The entire team was together and presented to the public with the unveiling of our new team
jerseys.  Also in attendance was Councilman Jeff Comerchero of Temecula who presented a
proclamation letter from the City of Temecula to the team.

The days events were marked by the unveiling of the NEW Julia Lynn (above left photo) and the
restored Husqvarna 250.  Capturing the event on video was KZXW TV who are running a feature on
the team's yearlong journey on Tuesday, August 1.  Refreshments were courtesy of Andre Barbosa
and 3 Brothers Racing.

Today was special in more ways.  It marked the meeting of the newly formed Sclerodrema Support
Group of Temecula Valley with the RFL team.  Led by Mary Vale of Temecula, this group was formed
as a result of the first rally many months ago at 3 Brothers Racing when we departed for Daytona Bike
Week.  Mary, we're very proud of you!

We raised several hundred dollars more for charity today.  Once in Sturgis we hope to break
fundraising records!  So follow along as we stir up fun and meet some great people the next few weeks!
