Even Rain Can't Dampen the Outback Riders

Motorcycles roared through Valdosta for the 18th Annual Outback Riders Toy Ride.

With toys in tow, riders began their journey in Lake Park, traveled along Highway 41 and made a grand entrance at Five Points.

Thanks to riders and the Salvation Army, hundreds of area kids will have toys this Christmas.

"It makes it more special knowing that we're giving something to the community, and to the children that's less needy," said Rose Paulo, of Valdosta. "And the families that probably couldn't afford it otherwise."

The Valdosta-based Outback Riders is the largest toy run in Georgia.

    To Bonqueeza. ROFLMAO That's so funny that you thank the Sons of Anarchy for the toy run. But you forgot to mention Wild Hogs and the Del Fuegos.

    You mean 750 kids, not thousands like in years past. Even though they have added Angel Tree, still have the Empty Stocking fund and 2,000 plus bikers...
