Holstein Harley Davidson
All Women’s Run – May 31st, 2014
Each year, Holstein’s Harley puts on a Women’s Only cruise. It’s a tradition that is holding steady and each year more and more women turn out for it.
Our 2014 route took us through Oakland, Iowa -> Harlan, Iowa -> Neola, IA -> Council Bluffs, IA.
The event is organized by Kristen, Holstein’s Motorclothes Manager. She put together a flawless event this year, covering every detail imaginable. From creating a route with the least resistance, fuel stops perfect for those with peanut tanks, solid 25 mile or more distances between each stop, lunch details to raffle prizes – the girl had it all.
Unfortunately, Kristen’s father passed away unexpectedly the day before the event. As Kristen dealt with the loss of her father, numerous women stepped up to the plate to help out in anyway possible. Kristen’s dear friend, Suze, reached out to Tyree to help her lead the pack and Tyree in return asked for my assistance as the route hit up all the Iowa bars that I was used to. Several ladies stepped up and helped with the check-in and announcement making.
A biker community banding together – one of the many reasons I love the two-wheeled life.
After we dedicated the ride to Kristen and her dad, we loaded up and headed out.
Thanks to Holstein Harley for the first three pics
There we go! Front of the pack!
Watch out fellas. Us chicks know what’s up.
Thanks to the Riders for Christ in the road blocking assistance. We made it out of Holstein’s safely!
The first goal of the ride was to just get out of the Omaha Metro area. We crossed the bridge into Iowa and stopped briefly to get the girls back together again. Street lights in Omaha are abundant!
This is Marcy and her new man, Jared. 😉
