June 13, 2014 Bike Night at Scott Powersports

csba day at the races trackbike We partnered up with Scott Powersports to support their Sport Bike Night event that was held on Friday June 13, 2014. They had a great line up of events including a stunt show performed by Clint Ewing and offered deals on parts, apparel, and accessories. The CSBA set up a stand to showcase our organization and the CSBA Day @ the Races track bike, as well as to provide refreshments to the guests. John did a great job grilling up over 300 hot dogs and we thank all our members who were able to come out to help. We also thank Scott Powersports for inviting us to be a part of their event and would enjoy the opportunity to do it again.

Announcement: A Changing of the Guard

To the CSBA Members, guests, and supporters.

Christian Sport Bike Association President Bob Brown has announced that he will be stepping aside and has appointed Mark Hamm of the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter to fill his seat as President effective on April 1, 2014. Subsequently, Bob Brown will be taking office as Vice President since that position has been recently vacated by Scott Journigan who has served us faithfully since 2007. Bob has been an excellent servant and President of the Association. We are delighted that he will be continuing to be involved with the operations within the organization moving forward.

For nearly a decade, Mark Hamm has been the Chapter Leader of the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the Christian Sport Bike Association. He is a devoted son, husband, brother, father, and mentor whom over the years has provided men and women with moral, ethical, and spiritual support as they sought his guidance. He does it without hesitation and sometimes it requires him to make sacrifices, but when the need is there he proudly complies, intervening appropriately as each case presents itself...

March 2014 Outreach Project

csba outreach project Well this is over two weeks late, so I have to work on that! It was good to return to the house we helped paint and spackle last year. This house has so much coolness and character to it, it's hard to describe, the pictures don't do it justice. I would love to have the $$ to put into this house, but I don't. So, we came together to help where we could, we cleaned, painted, scrubbed, lubricated, and unjammed a whole bunch of stuff in this house. In the process we got to know each other better, and had a good time helping out a non profit trying to help people out. Also Kat and Rick M, came as new folks to the CSBA. They attended some events last year, so it was good to meet and work with them. We also got a chance to work with Jim the same job foreman as last year, and that was real cool. The head of Keystone Opportunity Center came out and payed us a visit, thanking us for our work. Keystone owns the house and is trying to refurbish that house to eventually allow a family coming out of homelessness to live and get back on their feet. They are a successful ministry that truly makes a difference in people's lives and we are glad to be partnering with them.

mcc sport bike day

Some members of the Pennsylvania Chapter of the Christian Sport Bike Association took a trip down the Montgomeryville Cycle Center for their annual Sport Bike Day. We had a tent set up with handouts about our organization, as well as some pamphlets on motorcycle safety tips and information. We also got to meet a lot of cool people and of course looked at some sweet bikes. They had food, drinks, games for kids, dyno runs, specials on bikes and gear, and more. It was a great time! Check out the photos that Larry took at this event, some are posted below and more are in our gallery! Our next event is coming up on Saturday August 3. Its our "Shamokin Screamer Ride" and it is one of the most attended rides of the year, so come on out and join us! See you soon!

July 26-27, 2013 Keystone Rally Report

bikes at an overlook

Well, for our first annual Keystone Rally we had a lot of "firsts" and not all of them good. But do you know what, God is faithful way beyond what we thought. This rally began in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania's state capital. Rick J and I met up @ my place and rode out to the starting point, a Cracker Barrel restaurant north of Harrisburg and we almost missed the exit! Rick and I had enough time for a big breakfast of pancakes, eggs and bacon. There we met up with PA SV who came up from Virginia. We exchanged greetings, small talk, and the route to come. From there we went off in search of mountain passes to go roaring through. At the top of the first mountain we stopped for a picture. Sadly within three turns and 20 miles from our start we would have a crash.

Rick J came into a down hill left hand turn, grabbed both front and back brake to trail brake into the corner, but the rear wheel locked up and he began to slide a bit sideways. He then let off the rear brake and the bike promptly high sided him off of it. He landed on the asphalt, slid between a guardrail and a tree then fell about eight feet down an embankment. His bike followed him. . .
