The Krispy Kreme donut eating contest is always good for a laugh. Whoever stuffs the most down his throat wins a trackday (and maybe a coronary bypass too).
For ten years running, southern California's Toy Ride event has helped the Department of Children and Family Services by donating toys and money. In addition to the helping the kids in need, funds are also raised for Families of Fallen Riders from proceeds raised from a 2010 Yamaha R1 raffle.
Mother Nature had her influence on this year's event by offering some wet stuff, but by the afternoon it was nothing but clear skies and motorcycles. Stunt riders Eric Whitcomb, Tony Carbajal and members of the Stunt Farm street team entertained the crowd at the Queen Mary parking lot with a mix of high speed drifts, slow technical wheelies and general technical amazement.

Loads of gear was donated for raffle, and while some lucky riders went home with new apparel it was the children who truly won.
"It was wonderful that everyone came out and supported us. We raised over $5,000 in donations to help the kids, who will now have a brighter Christmas," said event organizer Michelle Lee.
