Riders for Gary LaPlante

Donation protected
Many people in the motorcycle world know Gary LaPlante — lifelong rider… trials champion… key employee at Kawasaki, Honda and others… founder of the MotoVentures dirtbike training center… and, of course, original member of the infamous Southern California Professional Bench Racers Association (SCPBRA).

On Aug. 28, Gary was taken by brain cancer. Even with health insurance, his medical bills were substantial. The response to this fundraiser has been wonderful, but does not cover the (ridiculous) gap.

If you wish, you can help Gary’s son Andre, who is now running MotoVentures on his own. Please share this with anyone who appreciates great people and great riding.

We’d also like to note that, while GFM says this fundraiser was organized by Mike Cline, it was 100% the idea of Hector Cademartori. Feel free to contact us via the link on this page. (Or send email to MotoVentures.)

And remember, as Gary would say, the red line is the right line.
