About 250 motorcycle riders took part in Hometown Harley Davidson’s fourth annual Toy Run on Saturday to benefit The Salvation Army.

People could either donate $10 per bike or a new toy to participate in the 32-mile ride that looped from Winterville through Ayden and parts of Greenville.


Gyno Topping, a member of the Street Hawks motorcycle club, said his club works to change the image of motorcycle riders as hard partiers.

One Cold Ride

The ride started out with warm temps, but the temp was dropping rapidly by the time the ride was over. I think attendance was down this year due to the weather. Despite the temps, a good time was had by all. There were no accidents, the food was superb, and the sponsorship by the American Legion Riders and Hometown HD was well-appreciated. Everything ran like clockwork due to the planning of the Hometown HD owners and staff! Thanks again to the riders, to the American Legion sponsors and to Hometown HD for doing this. Also thanks to the Ayden PD, the Winterville PD, and Greenville PD and all the motorcycle officers who served as road guards.
