Phil Comar of Adrian tells The Daily Telegram that the Sunday ride is in memory of his father, Robert, who died in 2008. He wants to raise $3,000 with the ride for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
The 61-year-old has been riding motor bikes and motorcycles almost 50 years, and says he'll steer with his legs and by leaning. An extra gas tank has been added to the back of his motorcycle so he can go nonstop.
Comar plans to ride to the bridge that connects Michigan's Upper Peninsula and Lower Peninsula on Saturday — no-handed at times.
