Congratulations to our Massachusetts Motorcycle Association 2018 Harley-Davidson Raffle Bike Winner!
A cool modest breeze was keeping everyone cool as the sun glinted off the raffle ticket drum at the French King Restaurant and Hotel on Route 2 in Erving, Massachusetts. While one of our Chairman's granddaughters spun the drum, her sister then pulled the winning ticket. Quiet ensued as everyone awaited the announcement of our Massachusetts Motorcycle Association 2018 Harley-Davidson Raffle Bike winner!
As the name was called, applause began as eyes began to scan the crowd to see if the winner, Tim Rielly from Brockton, Massachusetts, was present. He wasn't, and he wasn't immediately reachable by phone, because Tim was riding one of his 2 Kawasakis up in Maine. But Saturday, July 21st, 2018, will be one that Tim and his wife are surely going to remember!
Tim has been faithfully supporting your MMA's annual Bike Raffle for many years, but almost didn't buy a ticket this year. His wife, Susan, encouraged him to purchase the ticket online, and Tim then purchased ticket #2385.
Tim and Susan regularly ride their Kawasaki Classic 1600 and Kawasaki Mean Streak to their vacation home in Maine. Tim has been riding for about 20 years and always wanted a Harley - especially after attending the Houston and Laconia Rallies. "I am really looking forward to next year in New Hampshire with the new ride!", exclaimed Tim, "and I can't thank the MMA enough! A special shout out to the MMA Chairman's granddaughters for picking my ticket out of the 2500!"
Congratulations to MMA 2018 Harley-Davidson Bike Raffle Winner Tim Rielly!
