Show Class Issue Three - Christmas Giveaway

I mentioned in my last post that I had a few FREE GIFTS for some lucky readers...

Check out my last post for how to enter to win a free ticket to the 2012 Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Minneapolis, MN (Feb 3-5, 2012).

I also have TWO FREE COPIES of SHOW CLASS MAGAZINE: ISSUE #3 to give away.


The U.S. Postal Service apparently screwed the good people at Show Class Magazine over.  I am a subscriber to Show Class Magazine and they mailed me an extra copy of Issue Three because the first one they sent got lost in the mail.  They did this for a bunch of people because the Post Office seemed to misplace an entire batch of issues.  When that copy also seemed to get lost in the mail, they sent me a third copy with no questions and no hassle, all at their expense.  Soon after they mailed me the third copy, all three copies FINALLY showed up.  The guys over at Show Class are awesome and, to keep the good karma flowing, I am passing my two extra issues on to you.


THE HOLIDAYS CAN BE REALLY TOUGH...
ENTERING THE CONTEST IS REALLY EASY:

All you have to do:
E-mail me (gophersandcheese@gmail.com) by the end of the year and just tell me you want to be entered into the drawing for Show Class Magazine.  It's that easy!
  • I don't care if you use the subject line or body of the e-mail.  I'll be reading your e-mails, not some corporate robot.
  • It's not required but since you're e-mailing me anyway, feel free to tell me what you think of the blog or send a pic of you, your bike, or your old lady.  Keep the pics interesting.

How it works:
  1. All entrants must be at least 18 years old and live in the United States (no exceptions)
  2. Deadline to enter is midnight CST on December 31st, 2011
  3. TWO winners will be selected on January 2nd, 2012 at random from all entries received before the deadline
  4. Winner will be notified no later than January 8th, 2012
  5. Winner must respond and provide a home address by January 15th, 2012 so I can send you the magazine (I will take care of the postage)
  6. Each winner will get ONE copy of Show Class Magazine Issue #3
  7. One entry per person for the magazine giveaway
  8. Valid e-mail address required (winners will be contacted via e-mail)
  9. No complaining

Ticket Giveaway - 2012 Progressive International Motorcycle Show

Christmas is right around the corner and Gophers and Cheese is playing the part of Santa with a few FREE GIFTS for some very lucky readers.

The first is a FREE TICKET to the 2012 Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Minneapolis, MN (Feb 3-5, 2012).  I have attended this event over the past five years and it's always been fun. It's also a great escape from the bitter cold and a chance to check out the latest bikes & gear from the big manufacturers as well as some interesting customs.

  6. Winner is responsible for all other expenses involved in attending the event (transportation, parking, beer, nachos, etc.)
  7. One entry per person for the ticket giveaway
  8. Valid e-mail address required (winner will be contacted via e-mail)

    Thanksgiving Ride

    Sadly, almost a month had passed since I took these photos but my last ride of the season was on Thanksgiving Day.  The weather has almost been nice enough to take the bike out in the middle of December but I haven't tried it.  It's been unseasonably warm & dry (for Minnesota in December).

    Anyway, these images of my Thanksgiving ride bring back recent & fond memories of warmer & sunnier days...
