Trev Deeley Harley-Davidson and Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada pulled out all of the stops for their Precious Metal Gala last night which was held at the Salt Building in Vancouver.

Ladies of all shapes and sizes, backgrounds and ethnicity converged on the Salt Building to find out more about motorcycling and to support the Re-think Breast Cancer Charity.

support the Re-think Breast Cancer Charity

We ladies were treated to the Jump Start motorcycles where you could get on a bike and learn how it feels. Mounted on a live roll, the sportster and softail that were on hand for ladies to fire up and put through the gears were a big hit. Gals hiked up their dresses and climbed on board the ride of their choice and a Deeley gal taught them the basics of shifting. With the bikes rumbling away and fans running to simulate the feeling of being on the open road, the ladies were all smiles.

Christine of the Hawgs & Baggers Den group and one of our area reporters for the Busted Knuckle Chronicles got on the soft ail and put it through its paces!

Inside there were makeup stations, watches from Toy Box, eyebrow, foot massage and hair stations where ladies could try various products and or purchase them with portions of the proceeds going to the Re-think Breast Cancer charity.

There were tons of giveaways from Harley-Davidson including Boots and gift cards to lingerie gift cards and everything in between.

We heard from a breast cancer survivor and were entertained by a fabulous acrobat - her performance brought the house down!

There were all types of delectable munchies being brought around by gals with loaded trays and a full bar serving up wine, beer and coolers.

The action was non stop and included a fashion show of the latest in H-D riding apparel along with their newest Pink Ribbon line and their casual lines.

It was a wonderful way for ladies who already ride to connect with and share their reasons for riding with those who are curious about motorcycles - I spoke to many ladies who would love to ride and I think I even managed to convince a few that they really need to try life behind the bars!

The looks that the ladies were getting from the males and others who were passing by were priceless and I dare say the event was a huge hit with the ladies.

I hope that the next time they decide to do one of these galas that we will see the Pink Ribbon clothing line available for sale on site and that there will be more guest speakers who ride sharing their stories of WHY they ride and what they love about the empowering feeling riding your own brings.

I enjoyed the evening immensely and encourage all ladies who are curious about riding their own to get out to a Garage Party near you to learn more!

There is a ton of interesting articles in the news feeds today and I encourage you to check them out and see what might affect your day and or life as a rider at where our work is keeping YOU informed!

Have a fabulous Friday everyone! I am off to Hinton to meet up with the Military Police Relay Ride and escort them into Jasper...hope to see some of you on the road or in Jasper!

    Sounds like a wonderful gala event!! I hope to see more of these happening, and even to attend some in the future. I also would like to see them put on by other brands/makes of motorcycle since Harley is not the only one worth riding, contrary to the belief of some people, lol. Also, ladies and men, consider riding 3 wheels... I love it!!

    Keep the rubber down and the keys between the ditches!!
