  • The 5th Annual Nature Coast Toys for Tots Ride raised $16,631 to be used to purchase toys for children in the tri-county area of Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist counties.

    Of that amount, $10,270 was cleared on the raffle of a new Toys for Tots bike built by Gulf Coast Sledz, after the bills were paid for building it. Gulf Coast Sledz donated the 400 hours of build time for the bike valued at $32.000.

  • Airheads from all over the state converged on a 45-acre farm located between Cedar Key and Chiefland recently for the Second Annual Suwannee River Tech Day and Camp.

    The international Airheads Beemer Club is for riders who own BMW bikes with air-cooled engines. Most anything that happens with an Airhead Beemer can be repaired on the side of the road with the tool kit that BMW provides — with the right knowledge, of course.

    That’s why the Airheads motto is “Simple by Choice.”
