Welcome To First Checkpoint
Earlier in June 2020 – I set out on a personal mission to search the never ending pages of Instagram & Facebook with the intention of finding some of the most inspiring Harley-Davidson owners and their rides.
There’s a good chance you’re reading this as a result of my pestering messages and questions – A Big Thumbs Up for reaching this point and taking a few moments of your time to share your story, your ride, and your answers to some of the most common Harley Davidson questions asked around the world.
The Goal Seemed Simple
1.) Find an awesome and inspiring Harley picture on the Internet.
2.) Track down the fortunate owner/rider.
(Not too difficult most of the time)
3.) Contact YOU, about your bike, your story, and your helpful tips for others.
(Surprisingly – not too difficult either)
So, What's The Problem?
#harleydavidson – 14,000,000+ Instagram tags
Finding 100 of the most inspiring Harley Davidson pictures out of ~14 MILLION that exist on Instagram alone could take some time..
Without getting too technical – that means finding and contacting the owners of the 0.0000071% most inspiring Harley pictures. Which could take a forever..
#mindblown – 1,100,000+ Instagram tags
So, What's Next?
This is the part where I ask for your help.
In return, you and your story will forever be a part of the 0.0000071% of Harley riders that made this all possible.
From all the messages that I’ve sent and received over the last few weeks I’ve come to learn that Harley owners form an extremely passionate and surprisingly friendly community who are more than happy to share their pictures and their stories which makes me very excited for what’s about to happen here.
So, How Can You Help?
With all that said, my search is underway and I must admit, I’m in over my head.
Which is why I need your help (and approximately 6 minutes & 30 seconds of your time).
I’ve broken the process down to 3 simple follow along steps.
Step 1: (5 Minutes)
