     Sunday February 13, 2011… February ‘tis the
season for Love, and in my opinion there’s no better
way to celebrate that love than by attending the an-
nual Ride For Love. The Ride for Love was started
in ‘08 by Jim and Joni Baginski, fondly nicknamed
“Bags and Princess”, to raise money for their grand-
daughter. Back then, she was sick with aplastic ane-
mia and in need of a bone marrow transplant and
mostly living in a hospital bed. Today she is in re-
mission and doing wonderfully.
     Now Joni and Bags continue this ride to ben-
efit other children. The 3rd Annual Ride For Love
was dedicated to Maverick, a son of an American
Legion Auxiliary Member from Post 134. Maverick
is a 15-year old boy who needs open heart surgery
for a bacteria infected Heart Condition called En-
docarditis. Maverick was too sick to attend; but to
show his appreciation, his mother handed out a slew
of authentic fancy red poker chips that Maverick had
     The event started at Evil Twin Custom Cycles,
located at 2534 W Broadway, in Mesa. It was a clear
day for a ride, with a bit of chill in the morning air.
Run stops included American Legion Post 39 in Gil-
bert, Post 91 in Chandler, Post 2 in Tempe, and the
Rogue Bar in Scottsdale; with the last stop at the
D.A.V. in Scottsdale. About 125 bikers signed in and
others showed up at the last stop.
     Live music was provided by the band, Still
Cruisin’. Low hand was won by Mike Handy and
the high hand was won by Van Evera. Nytro won the
50/50 and donated her share of $106 back to Maver-
      My daughter, Amanda and I had a great time.
Amanda played shutterbug while I mingled among
the crowd. In between pictures, we bee-bopped to
sounds of the golden oldies. It was a great party. I
know Maverick’s Mom felt very blessed by the
whole affair.
