2018 Guinness Book of World Records Attempt | Parade of Harley Davidson's

This was a great ride where we attempted to break the Guinness Book of World Records with a parade of Harley's. There were dealer stops with media outlets to cover our story and the work we are doing. This was great as it helped raise awareness by bringing attention to our cause.  While on the trip we met Adam Sandoval and his dog Scooter (pictured right), we chatted about doing another big event down the road. It was fun to try to break the world record of Harley Davidson's while fundraising and bringing attention to our cause. Unfortunately the weather was hot, bikes were breaking down in line and could not finish. Some registered bikes were not Harley Davidson's therefore they did not qualify for the record attempt. All in all it was a great ride and we were able to raise $2,000 towards our goal in placing our first service dog. 

Thank you to all the dealers for donations and support on this run!
