A couple days ago, I was expressing my frustrations at the lack of support in our community for the Japanese earthquake victims and urging everyone to donate;. Well, I need to eat my words now (even though there is always room for more support).
Freestyle motocross rider Levi Sherwood posted a link on his facebook to MotoForJapan, a fundraiser set up by industry members Greg Hatton and Jon Bekef to help the land that gave us Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki, and Yamaha. They are urging fellow industry members, pro and amateur riders, and motorcycling fans to donate. The money will go to the American Red Cross. Mad props to Greg and Jon, as well as to all the donors!

In case you were wondering about the particular area of the surfing photo in the last post, a fellow JET who lived in the area made a blog post about it. In the comments, he mentions that the highway to Motoyoshi has been has reconnected. Hopefully we get more good news like that in the future.
