I am joining this year's ride in honor of my son, Cristopher "Brooklyn" Dopher.  Cris was born with Cystic Fibrosis and lived/fought a valiant life.  He receeived a double lung transplant at Duke University Hosptal in 2013.  He was back on his new motorcycle "Ellie" a year later.  My special thanks to our backup caregivers, Greg and Alice, and, of course, his donor.  Without his donor, we would have been having this memorial ride much earlier.
