PUHI — More than 40 riders took part in the 5th annual Howling at the Moon on Saturday.
Centering around the Kauai Harley-Davidson shop in Puhi, motorcycle enthusiasts representing several Kauai groups gathered to help Life’s Bridges.
Others joined the caravan of rumbling steeds that roared off into the dusk, taking a route out to Mana and back to the Puhi facility where they were welcomed with a hot drink and snack.
“Life’s Bridges is a good organization to help, and the Kauai Harley-Davidson is partnering with us Tuesday during the Kauai Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours,” said Lisa Murphy-Allison of the Kauai Government Employees Federal Credit Union.
Life’s Bridges is a nonprofit that offers counseling and support to those dealing with the unexpected death of a loved one.
A fatal traffic accident earlier Saturday led the group to observe a moment of silence for the downed motorcyclist.
JC Crouch, Kauai Harley-Davidson store manager, said Howling at the Moon is a preview for the Friday Night Ride to Kilauea Town, July 26 from 5 p.m. at the Kauai Harley-Davidson shop, 3-1878 Kaumualii Highway in Puhi.
“All brands and riders are welcome to come along as we head North with a side-trip down through Anini Beach for a sunset drive-by, dinner, fun, and to swap some lies,” Crouch said. “Registration starts at 5 p.m. with snacks and drinks. We fire ‘em up at 6 p.m., sharp.”
