This past summer, a small group of the Mountain Shadow Riders (and friends of the MSR) participated in the Pike's Peak Harley Davidson's annual 5-in-1 ride. This is an annual ride put on by the HOG group and consists of five mountain passes that are over 10,000 feet.
The ride is fun, but we decided to throw in a "contest within a contest" and have a bug run.
You know one of the badges is the number of bugs accumulated on a windshield--or for you tough riders out there--in your teeth. So the contest was developed. Each rider that participated was to put an index card anywhere on their motorcycle (line of sight was not recommended). The person that accumulated the largest number of bug splats...won.
I knew I wasn't going to win...as Murphy's Law dictates that no matter where I put my card...it would not get many bugs.
I was right.
I didn't feel so badly since I at least had some bugs...there were some in our group that had just a couple of bug splats!
At the end of our ride, we pulled off our cards.
LOL..the winner of the contest took home a big bucket of cleaning supplies....
With a big bug attached to the bucket!!
Until the next adventure,
Keep the shiny side up!
