  • Full Throttle Support 3 - Very worthwhile cause!!!!

    Well folks, seeing as everyone here is so supportive of each other and of worthwhile causes, I've got some information for you to consider...

    I work for Pierce Manufacturing in Appleton, Wisconsin. For those that don't know what we do, we are the number 1 fire apparatus manufacturer in North America. Feel free to check us out at www.piercemfg.com.

    For the past several years, we have teamed up with Harley Davidson to raise money for a very worthwhile organization. The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, also known as the NFFF, raises money to help out families of firefighters who have been injured or killed in the line of duty. Feel free to check out their website for more information about them. http://www.firehero.org/about/

    Well, to try to keep this short (yea right), what we have done twice so far was to get a Harley dealership to donate a brand new motorcycle. Then Pierce would take that bike and custom paint it. If you've looked at the paint on a quality new fire truck, you'd be impressed....and then we've raffled off the bike with the proceeds from the raffle going to the NFFF to help them in their cause...to honor our fallen fire heroes. The campaign is called Full Throttle Support. Feel free to search out Full Throttle Support. Here are links to the first two bikes we gave away.

    Guess what, we are at it again..Full Throttle Support 3 is all set to begin. http://nfff.fullthrottlesupport.com/ And to kick it off, Pierce, Harley and NFFF will be unveiling the new bike at Sturgis on August 6th. At that time, the official website, along with a Facebook page, will be updated with more information on how to participate in this worthwhile cause, and possibly win yourself a brand new custom Harley Davidson...

    I know I sound like a commercial, but considering how important the job is that a firefighter does, I feel very strongly about this. Thanks for your time.

                I could get ya sneak peak at the poster, but not the bike...I haven't even seen the bike yet.and in the past, I've usually been the one helping move it around...they are really keeping it hidden this year..I hope it's worth all the ninja secrecy.

                              Alright...at risk of total and complete humiliation to myself, here is the teaser poster for the fundraising campaign... The official release of the details of the bike with pictures will be made available on Saturday, August 6th. As I stated above, it is a street glide.....and I just ran into our Graphics Manager as he was delivering the finished fairing, and I can say...it is freaking sweeeeet looking...it is two tone black over red (fire truck colors) with gold leaf striping separating the colors and an awesome graphic right in the middle under the windshield, above the headlight. The graphic is faint in the black, almost ghost-like....Can't wait to see the rest of the bike....
