The BUG Run

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 Murphy's Law dictates that no matter where I put my 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!

I like that idea. I think I'm gonna incorporate that into my HOG chapter's spring ride to Mansfield, PA - BUG RUN RULES!!

Thank you, Christine. I have been searching for information about this game for hours over the past week, and your blog is the only viable source I have come across. Now I can stop wasting my time searching. Thank God! I work for a non-profit organization that is hosting its Fourth Annual Freedom Ride this weekend, and we heard about this game and will be offering it to raise additional funds. However, we did not know what the game was called or if there were any generally accepted rules--until now. Thank you again.
