About the Mission: Sadly we have lost one of our own. Jim Crane, PGR Member and Legion Member passed recently. We have been asked by the family to render honors during his internment. Most of you will remember Jim by his bright purple Honda Goldwing and the stories he would tell of his extensive travels on that bike.

Jim was a Vietnam Veteran and served from '17 November 1965 - '16 November '1971. Jim earned the Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal w/2 Bronze Service Stars and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal.

Special Covid-19 Mission Guidelines:

  • While in any outdoor setting, fully vaccinated PGR members will no longer be required to wear masks but are asked to act responsibly and respect your fellow members decision on this issue. For the protection of others, non-vaccinated members are asked to please wear a mask.
  • For the immediate future, all PGR members will continue to wear masks and social distance while indoors during a mission.
  • Masks will be worn at any other location where organizers, requestors or the Lead Ride Captain has determined that this be done.
  • Going forward, the Lead Ride Captain for any mission will be responsible for determining whether PGR members will have to mask up or not. Please respect the LRC’s decision on these matters.
