Harley Davidson Special Edition Motorcycles Head West with Shriners
We work with many motorcycle groups assisting them with hotel accommodations for multi-city rides. When I found out that we were going to be assisting Shriners from South Dakota with hotels, all I could think of was - Wow! I haven't seen a Shriner since I was a little girl at our small town parade...and I don't think they were riding Harley's.
18 members of the El Riad Shrine Motor Corps from Sioux Falls, South Dakota headed West. Their trip started with them flying from Sioux Falls into Las Vegas where their 54 foot trailer with the bikes and two trikes was waiting for them at the Excalibur. Their first stop was Hoover Dam, onto Oceanside, CA, then a coastal ride South to San Diego then East to Yuma, AZ. They discovered that there is almost nothing to see between Yuma and Tucson except the beautiful Arizona desert. After playing in Tucson for a few days, they headed to Phoenix to meet the truck and fly home. The group averaged 1800 miles per bike and never saw a drop of rain. A miracle considering the winter and spring we have had nationwide.
What are they riding you ask??? They ride Harley Davidson Special Edition Ultra Classic Electra Glides in Arctic White with Red/Gold Pinstripes and Road King Police special bikes. Harley Davidson honors those who proudly serve our communities all around the country with these Special Edition bikes.
Who are the Shriners? Best described as a brotherhood of men...dedicated to fun and fellowship...but with a serious purpose. It was a true pleasure working with Tom P. and assisting the Shriners on this fun ride. The El Riad Shrine Motor Corps have also recently been featured in the MotorMarket Magazine.
Until the next ride...you lead the way and we'll take care of the rest.
