ifications to the bike, and maps outlining routes that my wife and I had traveled across the coun- try and Canada and Mexico in my display. I ac- tually ended up with 3rd place. The judges said I didn’t get all the road grime off of all the spokes and the bottom of the engine. Apparently it’s difficult to turn a daily rider into a show-winning bike. American Heartland Harley Owners Group


members had their Harleys on display. Gail’s Harley-Davidson is the sponsoring dealership for the nearly 2,000-member American Heart- land chapter. March of Dimes Bikers for Babies volunteers were on hand to share details about the upcoming Bikers for Babies Ride, sched- uled for September 16 of this year. Jackson County Sheriff Deputies were at-


tending the show. The Sheriff’s department had a number of representatives at the exhibit as part of their pro-active program to interact with the community. They were there handing out pens, badges, toy cars, child identification kits, and offering assistance with Parental Inter- net Monitoring Software. They also had one of their copsicles on display. A few celebrities were included in the ex-


citement at the weekend extravaganza. Dis- ney Channel’s Zendaya Coleman, “Rocky” from “Shake it Up”, and Billy “The Extermi- nator” Bretherton were there signing auto- graphs and having photos taken with fans. Fans were waiting in lines, that stretched for one hundred fifty yards, with kids, for two hours for the opportunity to meet these celebs. Some of the featured vehicles dis- played included the “Manataray”, a leg- endary 1960’s bubbletop car, the BASF Mercedes Gull Wing, and the Rosewell Rod bubble top car. BMX Extreme Freestyle bicy- cle riders were flying through the air to pro- vide ongoing visual excitement for the crowd, also. This year’s World of Wheels with the Gail’s


Harley-Davidson All-American Invitational Mo- torcycle Show was another ‘fabulous’, ‘out- standing’, and ‘awesome’ show. One striking addition to this year’s show were Gail’s ‘Girls in Black’. Ashley, Sammi, Jenn, and Jennifer defi- nitely added additional pizzaz to Gail’s display. “Our team worked really well together,” ex-


claimed Gail’s Executive Director John Crabb. “It was a really good show. There were a lot of new bikes entered in the competition, so we got to see what everybody had been working on during the winter. It’s a fun time to be able to visit with friends and meet new people at the weekend show. The employees enjoyed the opportunity to showcase their personal bikes also. Now that this show is over, it is a sure sign that riding season is upon us. We’re looking for- ward to next year, and have some new ideas were going to bring to the show.” Be sure to ride to Gail’s Harley-Davidson


where “every day is an excuse to have fun.” Check the Wide Open Motorcycle Magazine calendar for Gail’s next exciting event.
