Portland, September 16th. The Oregon Humane Society’s 6th Annual Ride for the Paws Event drew nearly 200 motorcyclists and raised over $5,000 to help sheltered animals.  The event was a 150-mile ride and included a pancake breakfast at Cycle Specialties in NE Portland, a barbecue lunch at Bob Lanphere’s Motorcycles in Beaverton, and an ice cream social at OHS, where the ride ended.
