Finally, after a few chilly and cloudy Saturday events inMarch and April, the clouds parted for May and we had a beautiful afternoon forour Saddle-Up and ride BBQ on the 12th at Hot Metal Harley-Davidson!
The day started early with free coffee and donuts for ourguests. The Open House flags went up,the cones came out, and the music started playing at 9AM. Given the fact that Hot Metal has afirst-come first-serve Saturday in our Service Department, we already had abuilt-in crowd to kick off the day.
The Mon-Valley Hog Chapter kicked off the demo rides at10AM. Our demo fleet’s line-up consistedof a model from each family, several customer-requested bikes, and for thefirst time we introduced a Tri-Glide to our line-up. The trike was a favorite among demo riderswho had a fun time knowing that they no longer needed to put their feet downwhen they came to a stop.
At noon a hearty BBQ meal was put out for hundreds to enjoy. Our lunch was catered and included BBQchicken, baked beans, cheesy potatoes, and hot dogs that were served up by HotMetal’s own Corl Rowe and Ruth Holzer as well as Terry Owens from the HOGChapter.
Inside our guests were treated to 50% of end of season gear,and an offer of a $750 gift card towards Parts, MotorClothes, and Service onall new remaining 2011 model year Harley-Davidsons. 50/50’s were also a big draw for people whopurchased tickets right up until the 2PM drawing.
In honor of Monther’s Day, Curves put together a free registrationtable that consisted of a gift basket and a generous handful of two-month membershippasses to their gym.
