More than 250 motorcycle riders gathered at the News 9 studio in Oklahoma City Sunday morning for the third annual Stan's Ride, Oklahoma's Own Ride Against Childhood Hunger.

Motorcycle riders showed up at the News 9 studio at 7 a.m. to register for the event. They left the station at 9 a.m. and will arrive at their final destination, Fort Thunder Harley-Davidson in Moore, later Sunday morning.

This year, the big event includes the auction of a custom-made Harley-Davidson Street Glide Motorcycle.

The one-of-a-kind bike features incredible silver and blue metal flake paint, an oversized front tire, custom chrome wheels, a full Kicker sound system, and a stretched rear fender and bags, making it truly custom from the ground up.

The bike was built by Jerry Covington, well known throughout the motorcycle world for his one-of-a-kind custom bikes. He's also a winner of the Discovery Channel's "Biker Build Off."

This year, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin also joined the ride to help fight childhood hunger.
