  2. Now you know that’s right up our alley Dakota. We ride Harley’s (hence his name) and would love to do something like that here in our area. I will have to look into generating some interest with some of my fellow riders. Thanks for planting the seed.

  7. What a catchy and interesting title – – I just had to take a look. Bet it was fun. Anything with dogs and cats would be and raising money for charity is always good.

    They have a similar event here for our local shelter almost every year. They have a big ride first, usually a “poker run” with different stops. People around here really seem to enjoy events like this.

  16. Hi Dakota, yes we saw your shout out on the bandana. Too bad it didn’t fit.

    We tried to write you a comment on that post a while ago, but I guess it didn’t go thru.

    Hope you are having a pawsome summer!

  17. Hope they had a good fundraiser!
