1 Year Blogiversary Winner!

Time to announce the Winner!

Happy Blogiversary

 

But first, I must say thanks to all who took the time to write and enter to win!   I loved reading your comments!

To pick the winner, I typed up each entry (some of you had several entries), put them in a hat and asked Clint to help draw the winner!

 

Drum Roll, Please…………

And the Winner is Stephi!   

I was SO excited when Clint drew her name!

How I “know” Stephi is a fun little story.  Allow me to tell it….

So, there exists this cool little land called Instagram.  When you use #hashtags correctly, you end up finding some like-minded folks.   Enter: Stephi.  When you use the same hashtags frequently you start recognizing the same IG user pop up.   Stephi and I kept running into each other in the #harley world and so began following each other.   We would occasionally have conversations regarding our love of Harley’s and quickly found out we had even more in common than #harleydavidson.   She’s originally a Nebraska girl, transplanted to Milwaukee (my dream city to live in- Home of Harley-Davidson- hello!).   She is a kick-ass Harley girl, nurse, has a killer IG account full of photos that parallel mine AND she rides a Harley-Davidson Deluxe.  <—- The same as MINE!

It was meant to be!  🙂

My one HUGE regret is we didn’t actually meet last year during the 110th Anniversary of Harley Davidson.  I was in the same freaking city as her.

Next time, girl.  Next time!   Sturgis 2015?!

So, Stephi – ENJOY your gift card.   Make sure to email me your snail-mail address at harleysandheels@yahoo.com!

3. How many bikes have you owned and why did you choose your current model?

I’ve owned two bikes.  The first bike I learned to ride was my Mom’s.

I chose my current bike because it fits me well.

Pam 6

 

4. Tell us the story behind why/when you decided to ride your own bike?

After raising my kids it was time to get back to riding. When I want to go for a ride I don’t have to wait or rely on anyone.

Pam 9

 

6. Do you have a biker who is your inspiration?

My dad is my inspiration.

Pam 8

He always gave me encouragement to try new things. When he knew I was going for a ride he would say;Watch out for the cars because they aren’t watching for you.

My dad was on the Omaha Fire Department for 33 years and has seen a lot of Motorcycle accidents. He knew first hand. When I went to College for the first time last year he was so proud of me. You see, I’ve been out of school for 37 years. It was hard to go back.  I graduated in May of 2014 with my Book Keeping Certificate.

I’m so glad he was still here to see it.

Dad passed in July and I know he is watching over me now.

7. What are some of you favorite things about the biker lifestyle?

I love making new friends and meeting new people.

Pam 7

 

I love that if a biker sees another bike broke down on the road they stop to see if they need help.

I ride because I love freedom, independence, and the movement of the ground beneath me.

 

8. Give us one of your favorite two-wheeled stories.

All of my 2 wheel stories are special. Can’t just choose one.

Pam 4

 

9. What advice would you give other females who are thinking about riding their own?

Take a riders course. Don’t get a bike that is too big for you to handle.

Pam 12

 

10. There are many “Biker Codes” out there. If you had a favorite what would it be?

I will not show disrespect to other bikers less experienced or knowledgeable than I am.

It’s all about Respect.

Pam 10

 

11. Final words?

Live for today like there’s no tomorrow.

Do what you enjoy doing and don’t let anyone tell you you can’t.

Pam 5
