Overview: “Talk about a couple of hard asses……!
Hermy's BMW Triumph in Port Clinton, PA, will be hosting Jim Owen and our own sales staff member, Bob Lilley, on Saturday August 26th so that they may recount their experiences in the 2017 Iron Butt Rally. Jim and Bob finished 1st and 2nd respectively out of 107 motorcycles started and put in some big, BIG miles in the 11 day event billed as the “World’s Toughest Motorcycle Endurance Rally”. Owen rides a 2015 BMW R1200RT while Lilley rides a 2016 BMW R1200GS Adventure. The men chased each other all over North America – which included a monstrous ride from Allen, TX, to New York City, to Newfoundland, Canada, to Minneapolis, MN, on the final leg of the event, making for one of the most exciting finishes in the history of the IBR. They will start the discussion around 1pm and expect to wrap up around 4pm.
Hermy’s will be discounting in-stock BMW and Triumph parts, apparel and accessories in addition to awarding gift certificates for the most “farkled” bike and the “longest ride in” - for the rider who had the highest mileage ride to the event - we would probably look at Google maps along with time/date stamped gas receipts to verify the longest ride. So if you’re riding from far, far and away, keep your receipts!
Sending an RSVP to Suzy Kunkel at Hermy's would be greatly appreciated. Reach her at email@example.com. Hope to see you here at Hermy’s on August 26th!”
