here's the deal... this saturday my work people are hosting a poker run for the make a wish foundation.. i dont know how many people have heard or done this before but what it is is theres 5 or so bars (which are spread out all over,hence the riding part)..you start at one and ride to each bar picking up a card.. you ride from bar to bar for about 4-5 hrs until you get to the last one.. then whoever has the best poker hand wins money prize.. you DO NOT booze hag it from each bar :alky unless you really want to but with riding the bike i highly recommend you do not.. sorry i havent gotten this out sooner ive been begging for the flyer for the last darn month! there is food, drinks,music, dj, raffles, prizes all sorts of stuff at the end.. hell, just read the flyer...its for a good cause (and a tax write off : BONUS!!) :leghump
would anyone be interested in going? let me know :headbang

Have you ever been on a poker run? There's a reason why all the stops are at bars. Us sportbikers may not be part of the drinking, but..well...yeah.

As for HIN, it starts at 5pm and goes till 11 I think. It's $25 to get in and it's at the McCormick Center. www.hotimportnights.com

I know that Great Lakes Dragway was wallpapered with flyers for it. If you were at the show, how you escaped finding out about it is beyond me. I had like six flyers for it stuck into my bike when I left, not to mention the stacks of flyers in the bathrooms, at the concession stands etc...

Heh...

Well, i was there from 11:30 - 2:30 on Saturday. Didn't hit the bathrooms or concession stands. Didn't have the bike with me so the cage was parked out in cageland....and I didn't see/hear anything about HIN while I was there. ;)

yeah a poker run..... thats what I want to do hang out with a bunch of drunk HD guys, and just because we won't drink doesn't mean there wouldn't be any problems with drunks around us on 750lb bikes

After what you said above your post stopped making sense to me...

I know I'm not Scott so it wasn't meant for me but I'm still confused.

Sorry, not trying to be an ass or anything, but we all know what "poker runs" are really about. People have tried to sugar coat it before, but it always ends up the same thing. A bunch of drunk bikers trying to pilot their lead sleds around after stopping at all the bars to "pick up a card"...and one for the road.

Yes, drunk Hardley Gayvidson riders do suck. Read here for a worst case scenario.
That totaly sucks ass! But that's what you get when you deal with drunk ass HD fucks!

HMMM Where do I sign up for that poker run?? :headbang


I know someone that works for H.O.G. she sets up rides and rallys for the H.O.G. Members and now I guess HD doesn't want anything to do with drinking and riding so they are trying to set up poker runs that go to resturants and ice cream stands

That was about as confusing as reading chinese instructions for using a left handed football bat....
