Vicki Ballard Memorial Ride

The 2017 Vicki Ballard Memorial Ride is dedicated to the memory of Michael and Cass's sister, Vicki Ballard.  Vicki battled breast cancer for seven years and passed away in August 2010, following the Sturgis Rally. Vicki loved the Full Throttle Saloon and the people who go there. She was side by side with Michael in making it what it is today. Vicki is dearly missed by us all.
