• Hoka Hey Rider 954

    One of our Founder’s coworkers at Cox Enterprises has been accepted to ride in the 2022 Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge. This challenge raises awareness for charities around the globe. After hearing one of our Founder’s stories about Angels Alive, Steve Davis, a United States Navy Veteran decided to dedicate his participation in the 2020 challenge to benefit Angels Alive. Well, it is all happening again in 2022!
    In 2020 Steve rode his Ultra Limited Harley Davidson across these United States from East to West, South to North, West to East, and North to South supporting the Angels Alive charity as a warrior for our cause! We are very grateful for his commitment to this ride and for his dedication to our mission at Angels Alive. Please use our site donation button to contribute to Angels Alive, the cause he rides for. These funds are 100 % tax deductible and go directly into the Angels Alive organization to support projects empowering our veterans in need.

    We are committed to support Steve’s physical and mental wellness during this event. The challenge participation is limited to returning riders and 100 new riders every two years. The challenge encompasses mainly back roads over a 10,000 mile course known only to its planners. The journey is revealed by directions on paper 2,500 miles at a time. Start and finish points along with three checkpoints are the only route information known by the rider at the start of the challenge.  Electronic navigation assistance is not permitted, and riders must obey all laws of the areas they traverse. When riders stop for the night, they are required to sleep next to their bikes. Riders are given any amount of time to complete the specified route, but most riders try to return in time to attend an end of route event in the middle of the 13th day.
    What makes it truly exciting for us, is that we will be able to track Steve and the rest of the challenger’s amazing journey beginning June 26th at 6 am mountain time at www.hokaheychallenge.com via live feed provided by US Fleet Tracking. Steve will be riding under call sign #954–xxx–Davis. Steve is close to all of his Hoka Hey family of fellow riders and supporters but especially close to his neighbor Jimmy Hopkins, rider #984-Badger-Hopkins and his Brother-In-Law, Dustyn Monismith, rider #1116-Moni-Monismith both making their Hoka Hey debut.
    Steve was blessed with an amazing ride in the 2020 Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge. He writes about it here:
    “We started with 136 riders on August 9th 2020 in Panama City Beach, FL – we traveled clockwise on the route below. 87 riders successfully completed the challenge – less than 64%. Temperatures ranged from 35 to 105 degrees, we passed through 3 deserts, 31 states, ran along rivers, mountains, plains, national parks, reservations, monument valley, a copper mine, and lots of corn. It isn’t a race, but I was the 25th bike to finish in 12 days, 4 hours, and 33 minutes riding 10,277 miles, averaging 840 miles per day with a peak mileage day of 1,107 miles. Highs: The People, Sunset at rt 421 in Shady Valley TN, Sunrise on top of Cherhola Skyway, NC, Black Canyon sunrise, CO; Monument Valley on the AZ/UT border. Since learning to ride a motorcycle in 2016, and shortly thereafter discovering the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge, I have wanted to participate in as many Hoka Hey events as possible. This burning desire has taken me on a multi-faceted journey through life on many twisty roads in all types of conditions for almost 80,000 miles. It has brought balance to my life and made me better. I journey through this life leaving nothing left unsaid. I journey through this life as a warrior for the less fortunate. I experience life’s pleasures more fully and weather its storms more easily. I have become the person I was meant to be. One person can make a difference.”
    You can hear more of what Steve has to say about the 2020 Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge, his preparation for the 2022 challenge, and about being human in general at HumanAmplified.com during their season 4 finale on May 31st, 2022. Steve was interviewed by Brandi Fleck on the cutting edge podcast ‘Human Amplified’, which explores the deep meaning behind the everyday existence of human beings.
