Motorcycle club waits tables, washes dishes for accident victim

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The staff at a local restaurant looked a little more intimidating than usual Sunday.  The waiters and waitresses at Mellow Mushroom Pizza in Columbus don't normally wear leather jackets and ride Harley Davidsons.  The Law Dogs Motorcycle Club volunteered their time to help a fellow rider in need.  They are a group made up of law enforcement, military, corrections, and emergency service personnel.

"We're doing anything and everything: serving food, busing tables.  We're not allowed to make the food, we don't have that much training, but we're just getting the orders, taking the orders," said Law Dogs president, Douglas Dunlap.

In September, Wayne Hubbard, was taking part in a motorcycle ride that toured 14 SEC schools to promote breast cancer awareness.  While riding through Arkansas, Hubbard crashed on an interstate and sustained serious injuries.

"His wife had to take off work.  She's on FMLA leave, and during that time, they have insurance to pay, bills to pay.  If they're not working, they're not collecting money, so we're just trying to help out the family," said Dunlap.

All of the tips and donations received today went to help Hubbard's family while he recovers.  The Law Dogs offer advice to help people limit their risk while riding motorcycles.

"If you're going to ride a motorcycle, make sure you have the proper license.  I would advise going to take a safety course at Harley Davidson.  A couple other people in town offer safety courses before you go ride.  Don't just jump on and think you can go ride a motorcycle.  It is challenging," said Dunlap.

Even though Hubbard was not part of their club, the Law Dogs consider all riders who promote charities part of their brotherhood, and they look out for their own.
