William Hornaman, Erie, Pa., is the lucky winner in the Motorcycle Classics giveaway for a pair of tickets to the 3rd Annual Legend of the Motorcycle Concours d’Elegance in Half Moon Bay, Calif. And proving that you don’t have to be first to be, well, first, William didn’t register until the last hour of the last day of the contest. “Hell, I never win anything,” William tells us, defending his procrastination.
But he got his name in before the deadline, beating out hundreds of other hopefuls in the process. And if he can swing it, he’s planning on making it a trip for two so he and his wife, Cara, can celebrate their first wedding anniversary at the show! William, who parks a 1972 Honda CL350, 1976 BMW R90/6 and 1996 Buell Thunderbolt in his garage, is looking forward to checking out the incredible bikes at LOM and meeting up with the Motorcycle Classics crew. This ticket giveaway is a first for us, and now we’re scrambling to come up with some kind of special surprise for William when he gets there, especially if Cara comes along for the ride. Good fun, and thanks to everyone who signed up. Maybe next year … — Richard Backus
