Riverside Harley Davidson has been holding a Bike Night about every week or so but this was a bit different with Memorial Day and West Coast Thunder just a few days off tonight was the kickoff events taking place this weekend, Friday Night was Military Appreciation Bike Night, Several staff member were dressed in Red, White and Blue as were the Harley Angels. I noticed several people at the bike had various patches from all the branches of the Military. An Honor was setup in the parking for those wishing to put a name on it.
A Bike show area was setup for different classes including Baggers, Softails, Dynas and Sportsters. A lot of photographs were being taken in this area.
A photo area with a flag setup to have your bike photographed with two nice ladies.
Doing the Rock and Rolling was Jay Gordon and Blues Venom.
Food was Hamburgers or Cheeseburgers, chips and lemonade for three dollars as was cooked by members of the Inland Empire Harley Davidson Owners Group aka IE HOG. And the burgers were good.
And by surprise around 7:00 p.m. it started raining but it didn’t really didn’t stop anything people just ducked under the awnings and went inside the dealership until it passed by and things got going again. Someone mentioned it was a free bike wash.
At 7:30 pm a Tricycle Wienie Contest took place people of all ages could compete it in, a few kids and a grandma took part, the riders rode a distance bit a hotdog off a rope and then raced to the finished line Grandma also known as Ellen Hartle won.
