Porky's Memorial Ride

Mike-Nagy-7-28

Mike Nagy of Perrysburg, right, rides out with other bikers at the beginning of the 10th Anniversary Porky's Memorial Ride to honor Porky Myers. Myers, who died in 2003, was an active member of the local motorcycle community. His brother-in-law, Ed Harwell, of Columbus, said the ride had begun with Porky in mind, but grown over the years to become a memorial for several other friends. "He was just the kind of guy you were drawn to," Harwell said of Porky. "What you get here is the same camaraderie each year."
