PEOPLE Make Bike Night 2020 SHINE.
I have to admit when Bike Night 2020 kicked off back on June 3rd, I didn't know much about it. I knew of the tradition, but I was really not prepared for it. I mean, I had all the information about who our sponsors are, and kind of a rough itinerary of how things would play out. Now after our 8th week, I am proud to say that the reason why Bike Night 2020 is such a success is the people. The regulars, the newcomers, the families, the proud and beaming bike owners, the tight-knit groups who ride together all summer, our sponsors who come out like Kristen and Tanner from Indian Motorcycle of Bismarck-Mandan - the wonderful Sickies Garage crew who take such good care of us.
Some may wonder "What's the big deal about Bike Night?" They say "Nobody goes out on a ride, all the bikes are just laid out in rows doing NOTHING". That's part of the appeal though, PEOPLE getting together sharing their passion with others. Relaxing and looking over each other's ride.
Last night we were all privileged to be a part of something special - Jim Swortout from ND Flagpole Guy.com stopped by with some flags in hand - one of which he presented to Sherie, who is an Air Force Vet that spent time in Iraq - We all watched this unscheduled, unplanned gesture unfold, and it was touching.
Thank you to everyone who was there last night, and a huge hug to all of our sponsors making BIKE NIGHT 2020 possible:
