Dunedin, Florida: Toys For Tots Christmas Motorcycle Ride Finale

Dunedin, Florida: Toys For Tots Motorcycle Ride: Party: USMC Motorcycle with Sidecar and Dog Today, sadly, we wrap up the Toys For Tots series. I have saved the very best for last. I first saw this military motorcycle, with sidecar, parked near the live band. I took some pictures, as it sat there alone, because it looked so neat. Then, when I noticed the owner getting ready to leave, I hurried to get in position for some good shots. When I noticed someone in the sidecar, I thought that would make a neat shot. Then the 'person' turned toward me, and WOW, look at that! (Really, click on the picture to see the larger version and get the full effect.)

Every time I look at this picture, I smile. These two seem like a couple of best friends. And what fun to see this dog (small horse? pony?), so calmly seated next to his human, cruising down the street in this totally unique ride. I hope you have enjoyed this photography as much as I have. It was a lot of fun taking these pictures. I have included a couple more below, showing a sample of how these Harley Davidson and Honda Goldwing motorcycles were decorated.

**Addendum... I just recently realized that I had not mentioned, in all my excitement, that these pictures were taken at the after ride party held at the Dunedin American Legion Post 275.
