2010 Winners and Recap

What a great day we had for the first annual Tobacco Days Motorcycle Show!  It was a little warm with temperatures peaking out in the 90's, but we had plenty of free ice cold water thanks to our local Kwik Trip.

We would personally like to thank everyone that entered a bike in the show, those that attended and a special thanks to the Tobacco Days Car & Truck Show for giving us a chance.  With bikes ranging in age from 1946 to 2008 and bikes from literally all over the world, everyone had a great selection to gaze at.  Have to admit, judging was no easy task.

Below are the official winners:

Winner Bike City
Bob Kettleson 1979 Harley Davidson FLH Edgerton
Luci Chwala 2004 Harley Davidson XLC Edgerton
Ray Wescott 2007 Harley Davidson FLHTP Edgerton
Calvin Johnson 1994 Harley Davidson FLHTC Hollandale
Larry Van Horn 1946 Indian Chief Roadmaster Monroe
SSG Tim Allen 2008 Triumph Rocket III Janesville 
Carl Wucherpfennig 1967 BSA Royal Star Johnson Creek
David Millar 1962 Triumph Thunderbird Bathtub Edgerton
Elise Curio 1999 Ducati 748 Verona
Dean Ellison 1981 CZ Dirtbike Janesville 
Dean Ellison 1980 Maico AW Janesville 
Mike Ackermann 2001 Moto Guzzi California Special West Allis 
BJ Bullion 1982 Kawasaki KZ1000J Edgerton
Nick Lowe 2003 Kawasaki Z1000 Edgerton
Mike Zimmerman 1985 Honda CR500 Hill Climber Edgerton
Jeff Stuart 1945 Harley Davidson Trike "Harley From Hell" Fort Atkinson
Don Johnson 1977 Yamaha YZ250 Edgerton
Larry Van Horn 1946 Indian Chief Roadmaster Monroe

The Bob Huber Long Distance Rider award went to Mr Jim McGee that rode his 2002 Heritage Softail all the way from Austin Minnesota, right around 300 miles.  We feel honored that not only did Jim ride all that distance for our show, but also knew Bob Huber.

Finally the Bill Collins Best of Show award went to a gentleman that rode his beautiful 1946 Indian Chief Roadmaster from Monroe Wisconsin, Mr Larry Van Horn.  Larry came riding in complete with leather helmet and goggles.  He needed no help in kicking that old Chief over either!  Thank you Larry for sharing your special bike with us and we hope to see you back again in 2011.

We had a total of 48 registered motorcycles and 10 registered youth machines, not bad for the first year.  All the bikes were well done and it was a shame that they all couldn't win an award.  Between the Honda 250 Rebel chop, all the great looking BSA & Triumph's, vintage Maico, CZ & Yamaha YZ dirt bikes, the purpose built CR500 hill climber, three Moto Guzzi's, Japanese sport bikes & cruisers, Harley Davidson Shovelheads, Evo's and even a few Twin Cam's, Ural hack rig that showed up.......there were no complaints in diversity of motorcycles.  To see all of these right here in downtown Edgerton Wisconsin was amazing to say the least.

Dick Werner was so kind to bring down a museum quality informational and pictorial display of pre-1915 motorcycles made right here in Wisconsin.  Thanks again Dick and hope to see you back in 2011......there will always be room for you!

We had many compliments on the t-shirts that Chris Horvath from Pro Image Graphix designed for us.  They must have been good, they were sold out the day of the event!!  Much appreciated Chris!

Thanks to Tyson Trunkhill from True Engineering in Edgerton for donating custom made kickstand plates keeping all those bikes downtown from sinking into the asphalt on that hot day.  Their kickstand plates were used all weekend out at Racetrack Park as well!

Jason and Matt from American Cafe deserve a huge thanks as well!  It was great to have them giving two free screenings of their film during the show.  We would like to thank the Masonic Temple in Edgerton for giving American Cafe the perfect room for the free screening!! 

In recap, without all of our volunteers that donated their precious time this show couldn't have been a success.  We are looking for more volunteers and judges for 2011.  Sent me an email if you are interested.

Finally.....a HUGE thanks goes out to our official sponsors.  Please look to your left and support those businesses.  They helped make this happen as much as anyone.

Please stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks for the 2011 show dates, details and flyers.

Have a healthy and happy New Year!
