Santa Claus Drives a Shiny Harley to Deliver Toys in California


The roaring sound of motorcycles arriving en masse into town is hard to miss...but what about when everyone driving those thundering machines is dressed like Santa? The bike clubs known for their hellacious ways once gave motorcyclists a bad rap. Most bike clubs today have worked hard to let the public know they’re about “doing good “. Doctors, engineers and machine shop workers all drive bikes, and are among the elite that each year collect toys for kids, delivering them to needy children in hospitals, children’s homes and other such places. The next time you see motorcycle Santa passing by, give a thumbs up! Chances are this Santa is up to something good.
