Last June a tornado ripped through Northwest Ohio. Just 10 miles from the dealership, the Lake Township community was facing $100 million in damages. The high school was destroyed as were more than 50 homes and many community buildings. In August the dealership served as the starting point for the Ride to Recovery, which took bikers through tornado-stricken areas in two counties. An antique fire truck followed the ride, which concluded with a moment of silence and a fund-raiser at a local pub. More than 200 bikers participated, and more than $6,000 was raised for the Lake Township police and fire departments.
