Today was The Bacon Run. It is the motorcycle ride that Oakley, Chad and I promoted on the radio. It was a motorcycle ride from Shriner's Hospital that started at 8:00 this morning and ended at noon at Sugar House Park. The ride, which is sponsored and led by the Salt Lake City Police Squad went up through all 5 lakes along the Wasatch. After the ride, we were treated to a lunch from Rib City of pulled pork sandwiches, slaw and beans. It was delish! All of the proceeds are going to Shriner's. Arrow 103.5 also gave away a Big Boy Harley and an F-150 this year.
This picture of Oakley is going to be posted on the Harley Davidson web site as well as the Arrow 103.5 and FM 100 sites. They gave her this really cool leather jacket for the photos. She was hot, but told me this is what she wants instead of a car when she grows up. She is definitely my daughter!!! I will admit I had to wipe the drool from my chin a few times. I really want a bike!
We talked again with the "crew" from 103.5 and they kept referring to Oakley as the "Ambassador for Shriner's". She got her pics taken with a couple police officers and D.J.'s and we were told several times that it was nice for the riders to see an example of where their money is going and who it will help. There were over 100 bikes and Oak picked her favs to have her photo by.
Once again, it was an awesome experience provided to us by Shriner's. We had a great time!
