Sunbury, OH (PRWEB) August 08, 2011
Buckeye lake resident, Jimmy Huffman, recently departed on a motorcycle trip of a lifetime: The Hoka Hey Challenge, a more than 10,000 mile trek from Phoenix, Arizona, to Nova Scotia, Canada, through all 48 contiguous United States and multiple Canadian provinces.
Jimmy Huffman is one of more than 1,000 riders competing for cash prizes in the 2nd Annual Hoka Hey Challenge. Translated to “It’s a Good Day to Ride,” the endurance challenge tests a rider’s physical and mental strength as riders adapt to climate changes and weather, ride on limited sleep and navigate unfamiliar two-lane roads. Participants are required to stay with their motorcycles at all times, follow routes for each leg of the trip as given to them at each of the 13 checkpoints, and electronic navigational assistance is strictly prohibited. To be eligible for prize money, riders maybe subjected to psychological exams, drug screening and polygraph tests.
Jimmy Huffman is sponsored by A.D. Farrow Co. Harley-Davidson, America’s Oldest Harley dealer. “I cannot think of a better way to celebrate our 100th anniversary than to be a part of this extraordinary event,” says Bob Althoff, Dealership Principal of A.D. Farrow Co.
The A.D. Farrow Co. Shop at NorthStar is also the 10th checkpoint during the challenge and will have service technicians available around the clock beginning August 13 when riders are expected to begin arriving in Columbus.
During this time the historic Columbus dealership is hosting “Camp Hoka Hey,” a stay-cation event on August 13-14, at its Sunbury campus at I-71 and SR 36/37. The scenic grounds will host camping, fireside guitarists, paddle boats and other family activities.
Huffman is confident he will be checking in at A.D. Farrow Co. Shop at NorthStar before any other challenger and is looking forward to seeing his wife and daughters cheering him on through the final legs of his journey.
