Harleys and Hot Rods

The local Harley Davidson dealer (Harley-Davidson is a registered trademark of the Harley-Davidson Corporation Milwaukee, WI) has a car and motorcycle show every year.

Anyway…I had no plans to go but I was just driving by when I saw the balloons at the entrance signaling some sort of event. I had my camera with me so I figured I would swing in and maybe shoot some nice bikes. I was headed for the spectator parking in my ’32 Ford but the gate keeper insisted that I enter the car show…sure, why not. Gotta park somewhere, right?

Once inside a very nice woman came up and said that she had closed the registration table but the gave me a meal ticket and said: Just go in to the motor clothes counter and say Tina sent you and they will give you a free T-shirt. As a car and motorcycle  guy we know that t-shirts are as important as underwear…or more.

I KNEW…right then and there…I would catch hell for this but I decided to brave any attitude that may be thrown my way and walked up to the young ladies as the motor clothes counter. I said (in a pleasant tone) just what I was instructed to say: “Tina said that I should just say that she sent me for a free Harley Davidson t-shirt” (Harley-Davidson is a registered trademark of the Harley-Davidson Corporation Milwaukee, WI)

The young ladies looked at me as if I were some sort of alien beamed down to earth just to try to steal an incredible valuble Harley Davidson t-shirt.  (Harley-Davidson is a registered trademark of the Harley-Davidson Corporation Milwaukee, WI) The young ladies then spent the next ten minutes looking for said Tina or some other manager and then they came back asking: What size do you wear? Not a smile, not a “sorry, we have a lot of folks trying to pull a fast one”…nothing…just crap loads of attitude…

Well, let’s check out some bikes:

How about a hard tail Harley Davidson? (Harley-Davidson is a registered trademark of the Harley-Davidson Corporation Milwaukee, WI)

Harley Davidson Sportster (Harley-Davidson is a registered trademark of the Harley-Davidson Corporation Milwaukee, WI) also (Sportster is a registered trademark of the Harley-Davidson Corporation Milwaukee, WI)

Not a Harley Davidon (Harley-Davidson is a registered trademark of the Harley-Davidson Corporation Milwaukee, WI)

Another part of the entertainment: Having car show participants do burnouts with people standing less that 10 feet from the car. Brilliant!

Oh yeah, remember: Harley-Davidson is a registered trademark of the Harley-Davidson Corporation Milwaukee, WI

Really!
