2023 Ride in Bike Show!

Our annual Ride-In Bike Show with sponsorships from Big Moose Harley Davidson and Budweiser was spectacular, best show ever! Weather was in our favor, and there were 57 bikes on display from all over the country! Each participant who registered their bike received a limited edition Bentley’s Saloon “Contender” 2023 Biker Rally tee shirt! A secret panel of qualified judges took their time as it wasn’t easy with so many bikes worthy of awards! All winners received trophies and first place winners received $150 in cash and second place winners received $50 in cash. With the “WTF” - unusual looking bikes, “art” or “rat” that run or don’t run - category winner, Jeff Dawson who had a “2021 Homebuilt Custom”, winning the handbuilt trophy by Lewis Leonard out of Bentley’s old bike parts!! Jeff was also awarded the Best Handmade Parts plaque and the Best in Show Judges award of $250 and biggest trophy!! Along with the gratitude to our sponsors, the success of this show wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of friends Lewis Leonard, Tom Crompton, Brian Carpentier, Dino HP Cycles and our secret panel of judges.
