About The Flying Piston Benefit: The Flying Piston Benefit events are produced by Marilyn Stemp of Iron Trader News and Jeff Najar of Horsepower Marketing to assist in raising awareness and funds for non-profits and individuals in the biker community. New ridership and veteran’s concerns are the focus.

In addition to Motorcycle Missions, Flying Piston Breakfast proceeds support, a foundation that makes bike riding a part of the kindergarten curriculum in schools, with the goal to cover the nation.

The Builders Breakfast began organically, as many efforts. But the event has evolved, bringing a firm goal into focus: to bring more riders into motorcycling.
