DA8 KX 500


Road 2 Recovery is presenting a once in a lifetime opportunity with the help of Destry Abbott’s family.  Destry Abbott who has won over 10 major championship and 7 ISDE gold medals throughout his career has built up this one of a kind KX 500 machine and we are going to give it to one lucky winner just for making a $10 donation through Road 2 Recovery. To get a ticket, click here.

Destry Abbott was recently diagnosed with Leukemia and needs our help.  His health insurance covers only a small portion of the care he needs.  He will be at a specialized cancer treatment facility for several weeks and it will be all cash.  Thankfully he is seeing the best doctors right away and they are attacking the cancer with the maximum effort.

Road 2 Recovery will also be hosting three live events where your donation will go towards taking delivery of this KX 500.  The Glen Helen National May 28th, Kurt Caselli Doffo Fundraiser May 30th and the Canyon Motocross DA8 Family Fun Day in Arizona June 4th.

All donations collected will go towards a randomly selected individual winner of the DA8 KX 500 on Destry Abbott’s birthday, July 13th, 2016.  If the name drawn is accepting the bike in the United States shipping will be paid.  If international, shipping will have to be covered.  The last day for donations will be Sunday July 10th, 2016 so do not delay!

Each $10 donation will put you on a list for the final drawing on July 13th.  Choose your amount and the more you donate the better your chances!  Thank you for your support!

There are tons of special one off parts and custom work on this bike!  It has approximately 5 hours of ride time.
