The Officer Down Ride is taking a break this year. Thank you for your continued support.
Thank you to all who came out to the 6th Annual Officer Down Ride, despite the weather! We appreciate all of your support.
Pictures have been added to our photo page.
This is a rain or shine event! As of right now, it looks like the rain may hold off until the afternoon, giving everyone time to get down to Beach House H-D®. If you would like to drive your car, you can register, receive your hat, and roll all your dice at Carolina Coast H-D® and head down to Beach House to eat and participate in games.
Registration and check-in opens at 9am, and the last group out will leave at 10:30.
We would like to extend a giant THANK YOU to Printworks in Wilmington, NC for their generous donation of printing services!
The dice game prizes have been announced!
1st place: Trot Nixon signed baseball jersey and $50 gift card good at Carolina Coast H-D, Beach House H-D, and New River H-D
2nd place: Genuine H-D leather vest and $50 gift card
Lowest score: $25 gift card
The Christian Motorcyclist Association will be manning the dice roll checkpoints on the ride as well as offering Bike Blessings.
Even if you can’t make it to Wilmington in the morning for the ride, you can still enter the “No Class” Bike Show at Beach House H-D® on April 16th. There are no classes, no judges, and no entry fees–we’ll put a bucket in front of each bike, and the bike that raises the most cash wins. (So tell all your friends!) Proceeds benefit the Officer Down Fund.
4 feet of bragging rights!
