Dodging the RoadkillClarksville, Tn – The Tuckessee Harley Owner’s Group, H.O.G, held their first annual Motorcycle Rodeo this past weekend and as they say, a good time was had by all.

The H.O.G chapter is for Harley Davidson owners who enjoy riding and fellowship with other riders.  They support charitable causes in the community but more importantly, they promote riding their motorcycles and riding safe.

Held on May 6th at Appleton’s Harley Davidson, the participants were asked to perform feats of balance and motorcycle skills as they competed.

The first event of the evening was the slow race.  To see who could operate their machine at the lowest possible speed without putting their foot down, or worse yet. falling over.  A heated battle between Keith Roberts and LiL Mikey Damico, sent Roberts to face Jerry Traughber where Roberts was the winner.

This event was scheduled instead of the regular monthly meeting of the H.O.G Chapter and featured a food truck and family and friends to cheer on the competitors.

The second even featured two man teams competing in the balloon toss contest.  Grace and Michael Damico managed to stay dry and made it look easy.

The final event was the weenie bite.  Two passengers on a motorcycle, with the one on the back trying to bite the biggest chunk out of a “weiner” hanging on a string.  Chris Leary and Tosh Blackmon were leading most of the competition until Brittany Neal and Jon Robinson made their final pass.

In the end, Brittany wins the weenie bite.

This event was a great time for fellowship and just hanging out with other bikers.

Director Jason Altenberg says this event will get bigger and better next year, and thought the first attempt at it went well.
