The Harley :)

And people said it'd never happen. Ha! I kinda like this way of looking at things:

"Risk more than others think is safe.
Care more than others think is wise.
Dream more than others think is practical.
Expect more than others think is possible. "
Yesterday I got the news that the Harley is all paid for!
Yup, that's right, the 2010 Heritage Softail Classic that the Cincinnati Teamsters Motorcycle Association is raffling off at REZonate to benefit Backpacks for Pine Ridge, is all paid for! That means that everything now is profit and it all goes to buy backpacks and school supplies for the kids on the Pine Ridge Reservation!
If you go to a HD store to buy one of these, it'll cost you about $18,000. TMA is selling raffle tickets for just $10 each. Even if you don't win it, which chances are you won't.... you still win because its providing school supplies for kids who simply would not have any school supplies if we didn't get them to them. The median income on the Pine Ridge Reservation is just $3500 a year. You can imagine that if that's your income for the year, school supplies are going to be way down the list of things you need to buy. Thanks to the Cincinnati TMA and Tri-County Harley, the sky is now the limit for how many kids we can help next year!
