One of the many, many items up for grabs in a fund-raising auction benefitting moto-journo Andrew Trevitt.

OK. When I first heard about what happened to Sport Rider editor Andrew Trevitt I had a very familiar “there but for the grace of god …” moments. It’s one I have anytime I read a report about a rider going down as the result of a bike/car accident, something that happens with alarming frequency unfortunately. It’s a bald, scary fact that the things that separate me (and you) from eternity (or else) are a driver’s attention span or my riding skills. This is something I keep in the forefront of my thoughts anytime I hit the road on two or four wheels. My heart goes out to Andrew and his family.

Andrew survived his accident but not without some horrific injuries. And as a tribute to his character and a testament to the close-knit nature of the motorcycle industry, Kawasaki has put together a huge auction in Daytona to raise money for him. There is also an eBay auction. Andrew’s currently undergoing extensive rehabilitation and has already run a marathon of medical procedures. Check out the details of the auction over at Dealernews.com, including information on this custom V-twin and other items up for grab. There is also a link to the blog Andrew is keeping during his recuperation.

God speed Andrew.
