Central Route Newsletter October 2023

Aloha RFTW O’Hana,

Registration is off to a great Start. We have 269 people signed up already in just under one month. 99 of them are on the Central Route. I encourage everyone to get on line and get registered NOW. We need the projected numbers for planning purposes. Our State Coordinators are already working on Hotel accommodations, fuel and meal stops. Knowing how many bikes and people we are expecting is a huge help in the planning process.



Things are going pretty smoothly with our planning. We do still need some volunteers.

We are looking for a 50/50 Rouser, a Videographer, and Merchandise team Leader and Driver. If you are interested in the Merchandise team positions, Please reach out directly to Alan “XBox” Steiner at for more information. If you are interested in the 50/50 or Videographer positions, please email Kirk “Prettyboy” Olson at

We have an event coming up in Southern California at the end of October and we are looking for RFTW Riders to come and support it. This is the Community Kickoff Event for Homes for our Troops (HFOT). RFTW Donated money to HFOT to assist in building adapted homes for wounded Veterans. This month the Community Kickoff Ceremony for HM3 Nathaniel “Randell” Leoncio is Scheduled for 2:00 PM October 28th in San Marcos, CA.

Information about Doc Leoncio can be found here.

We have created a sign up form on google docs to sign up for the event so we can plan for the numbers that will  be attending. We are looking for Motorcycles to Escort Doc Leoncio to the Church where the ceremony is going to be held. Staging (Currently) is slated to be at Lot “C” at California State University-San Marcos. Address is  333 S Twin Oaks Valley Rd, San Marcos, CA 92078. Staging will be at 1:30 PM at lot C. There will be a rider’s brief and a chance to meet the Recipient Doc Leoncio and then we will escort him to the Church for the Ceremony. We are also looking for any volunteers to assist the PGR with a flag line at the church.



More information to come. If you sign up on the google doc, please make sure we have a good email address and cell phone number, so we can send updates and changes as needed.

Remember the Mission and continue to plan for the upcoming RUN. See you all soon!
