Staying at the motocamp site in St. Aubin de Nabirat near Gourdon ( six samelike places excist in France), approx. fourthy members have chosen the lovely spot at the bridge "pont de Vicq" for a pause.
Eddy Styven, European Wind & Fire president, explains the clubs philosophy as "Solidarity,respect,brotherhood" and completing "charity", because these bikers promote and execute wellfare for others.
As an example last Saturday in Thenon, they gave a baptise ride to French firfighters orphelins.
The firefighter spirit.
It’s in april 1991 , when Jerry Eibert in Sta. Barbara ( California ) founds Wind & Fire. Retreated fireman, he originates the Harley spirit amongst firefighters. Last Saturday they came from as far as Marseille,Nevers,Lille,Antwerp, even the UK and (Sweden)?
Fred Fournet,French chapter director confirms, a Wind & Fire member should ride a Harley and be or have been a firefighter.
Some of them will continue the ride to Barcelona for the celebration of a centenial of history on two wheels with no equal, before going over the Atlantic in august for a return to the source at Milwaukee, the industrial cradle of Harley Davidson.
More than one million bikers are attended.
