The High Seas Rally Proudly Announces an Expanded Mission
The High Seas Rally is honored to carry on the awesome HSR legacy of supporting dialysis patients by providing them with an incredible all-expenses paid vacation on the high seas, while also expanding our mission in 2020 to honor and support Military Veterans and First Responders.
With Debbie’s Dialysis Fund winding down, High Seas Rally Executive Directors Chris Hearing and Greg Laubach formed Navigare Cares and teamed up with Dialysis at Sea to provide treatment to 10 dialysis patients on the 2020 sailing. This effort is being funded by Chris and Greg for 2020. All money raised before and during the 2020 cruise will be used to fund the dialysis program in 2021. We look forward to accepting patient nominations in May.
HSR host Xavier Muriel was brought onboard for 2020 not just because he is an awesome bike builder and great guy, but also because he shares our commitment to fighting back against kidney disease, an effort that is near and dear to his family. From Day 1, Xavier’s motivation to join the team and build a custom HSR motorcycle has been the impact HSR has on those receiving dialysis treatment.
Chris and Greg are honored to announce that the High Seas Rally will also build and support programs for our Military and First Responders. The entire HSR team is humbled that so many service members and emergency personnel make the High Seas Rally their annual vacation. We previously announced a Salute to Service day on the 2020 cruise, but that is only the start of a long-term commitment by HSR to support the men and women who sacrifice so much for all of us.

FROM THE GARAGE WITH XAVIER:
We Now Have a Complete Roller!
Xavier Muriel has checked in from his garage in Texas to provide us an update on HSR’s custom bike build. Both rims now have rubber on them and the front end has been selected!
Now you may be asking yourself, “Why does the front end look funny?” Well, Xavier points out that he’s working in a mock stage.
As the build continues, Xavier will modify the Lowers by shaving off unwanted pieces to make it look extra cool and custom. Xavier has also started the mock on the rear fender, by spacing and aligning the rear wheel to the center of the frame. Correct spacing is VITAL for the bike to track true running down the road, Xavier says. When the fender is in position, he will begin cutting and welding to start crafting the killer custom look.
The Bars and Risers are now in house. As is the Paul Cox Rigidaire seating system, which allows the driver to use a small manual pump to inflate the seat for the most comfortable ride, while not sacrificing the always classic look of a chopper.
Next up? Installation of the motor, tranny and belt drive, then fabrication of the oil tank before moving toward the front of the build. “I always start at the rear of the bike and work my way forward,” Xavier says.
Remember, the custom motorcycle will be going home with a very lucky member of the HSR community after the 2020 cruise. Stay tuned for more updates From The Garage With Xavier!
