Rider Justice is constantly looking for ways to engage riders and celebrate the biker lifestyle. We gave away a Harley-Davidson Dyna Wide Glide in 2015 as well as a Triumph Bonneville in 2017. So, when I suggested that we give away a 2020 Honda Monkey, everyone thought I was crazy. But once I laid eyes on that 125ccs of throwback fun, I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. And many have felt the same way when seeing it in person.
We launched the contest in January at the International Motorcycle Show and the last large event we were able to register people was the Motorcycle Expo in February. Our intentions were to give away the Monkey at the BikerDown annual Look Twice Save a Life Ride, however, COVID forced that event to be postponed.
Since Spring, we’ve been keeping our fingers crossed that BikerDown could safely reschedule the Look Twice Ride sometime during the 2020 riding season because we were committed to combining the Honda giveaway with that event. It’s a crucial fundraiser for our favorite local non-profit, and we wanted as many people to attend as possible. On September 5th, we finally had our day.
A Winner is Chosen
With almost 2,000 entries we drew 10 names and those people were called to the Rider Justice stage at Dirty Dogs Roadhouse. Each of those 10 people selected a BikerDown pack filled with swag (some even had $100 Visa gift cards) and a key. In turn, each person opened their pack to see if their key was the key to start the bike!
Finally, our winner emerged: Joel McCoy! Congratulations Joel! We can’t wait to see you at bike night on the Monkey. *beep* *beep*
