-- ScootinAmerica, a world record breaking fundraising campaign benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project, has taken a brief hiatus from trekking cross-country to every Harley-Davidson dealership in the lower 48 states due to a road collision. The campaign's premier motorcycle, fondly named The Warhorse, is on display for visitors to view and take photos with while it is stationed at Six Bends Harley-Davidson for repair.
The Warhorse, a 1996 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide, has taken philanthropist and motorcyclist Adam Sandoval and his Chihuahua, Scooter, to every Harley-Davidson dealership in 45 states (so far), logging 75,000 of miles for charity through ScootinAmerica. Currently, all proceeds gathered throughout the journey – from fellow motorcyclists, riding clubs, sponsors, fans and generous donors – are donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
The Warhorse was shipped to Six Bends Harley-Davidson for repair services following a road collision in Ohio. The store, a longtime supporter of ScootinAmerica (http://www.scootinamerica.com/
) and their mission, is donating the service and parts to get Sandoval back on the road (using some donated parts from sponsors as well). Sister store, Naples Harley-Davidson is also assisting the cause. The motorcycle will be on display in the Service Department through the end of August. Visitors are welcome to view, take photos and learn more about the bike while it undergoes recovery. Guests are encouraged to share photos on social media with the #OperationWarhorse tag and make a donation to ScootinAmerica. To make a donation online, visit ScootinAmerica.com.
The ScootinAmerica campaign will close with a finale weekend at Six Bends Harley-Davidson from October 7 to 9. The weekend will include a live concert, second attempt to break the world record for longest parade of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and more. Details will be shared on SixBends.com and SixBendsHD.com at a later date.
