Lone Star Rider new Motorcycle to fight Diabetes

I'm Dan Smith, and I met Rex Covington, aka Lone Star Rider, during the 2020 Motorcycle Grand Tour of Texas.  Rex's efforts to raise funds for American Diabetes Association by riding around the country on a motorcycle and trailer to sleep in was recognized by the Tour as a charity for support by the Tour members, almost 1000 riders, many of whom donated to the ADA.

This is Rex, with his venerable 2008 Harley-Davidson Road Glide which has over 100K miles and is falling apart, and his trailer that he sleeps in:

He's been riding around the country for 3 years now with a goal to raise $90K for the ADA on his 2008 Harley-Davidson Road Glide.  In order to keep this up, he needs a replacement motorcycle capable of touring and towing.  I'm hoping this GoFundMe will raise enough for Rex to maybe buy that motorcycle, or pay a good portion of it, so that he can continue his charitable awareness and fundraising for the American Diabetes Association.

Donations here will go to Rex for a new or quality used touring motorcycle to keep him on the road.  Also, Lone Star Rider/ADA is once again a designated charity for the 2021 Motorcycle Grand Tour of Texas.  Let's help Rex avoid more tow truck experiences like this one from December 5, 2020 near Laredo, TX:
