Motorcycles have been a big part of the family's life for as long as they can remember. Both Craig and Tonia have grown up with families who ride, and both have followed in their parents' footsteps. These days riding continues to be very much a part of this family's life. Craig's father and brother, along with other family members, rode in from Illinois last year and are already packed and ready to ride down again for the rally this year.
"The rally has become an opportunity for us to get together and have a great time," Tonia tells us. "We love BB&BBQ because there are things for all ages and it is family friendly, so our family can spend

time in 2009," Tonia continues, "and haven't missed a year since! We look forward to this rally every year. I take off work for the entire event, and since we've been attending and telling everyone we know back home about it, we now have several people that come up and attend it with us, including my brother-in-law's motorcycle club. This really is an event for all people with lots to do and great opportunities for breathtaking views and memories for a lifetime."
Originally from Granite City, Illinois, the family moved to NWA in 2007 and opened a small body and mechanic shop in Garfield, Arkansas; ALL Automotive. Tonia and Craig have been married for twelve years. This seems to be one case where the cliche speaks true; the family who plays together, stays together. Or should we say ride?
