By Dennis Martin Bourbeuse Valley Harley-Davidson held their Spring Bike Show on May 5th to kick off Spring in true style. This was the first time it was warm and dry on the same day which certainly got people out riding. There was 28 bikes entered in the bike show and the parking lot stayed full all day with riders coming and going. The vendor included food by Big Boys, Filley’s Fine Sauces, Off Leash K9 Training, Ameri- can Family Insurance, Recovery from Addiction with Hope (RAH), motorcycle Christian group, and more. The Killer Wails entertained the crowd with some killer tunes. Since Thunder Roads Magazine MO/So. IL was hosting the bike show again; I really didn’t get a chance to wonder inside. I heard there were some great deals on Harley SWAG. We want to thank everyone that entered and sup- ported this free ride-in bike show. We have a blast doing them and the winners were: Sportster – 1st Zach Williams, 2nd James Colvin , 3rd Steve Mallett; Twin Cam Factory – 1st Jimmy Russell, 2nd Debbie Smith, 3rd Todd Dunn; Twin Cam Custom – 1st Bubby, 2nd Jess Earney, 3rd Chuck Hol- lister; Touring – 1st Brent Overkamp, 2nd Robert Hartline, 3rd (tie) Janine Shurts & T.
