Manheim, Pa. Aug. 11—Garage-Girls are proud to announce the Ultimate Biker Makeover winner for 2018, Karen Anderson. Karen was selected out of over 74 entries to this year’s contest from the story and photos that were submitted. This is the 10th year for the annual contest that is fueled by the goal of helping a fellow rider stay out riding on the road.
Contestants (girls and guys) were asked to submit a 600-words-or-less essay, describing why they are most in need of a biker makeover as well as a photo. Deadline for entries was June 22, 2018. Submissions were narrowed down to the final four by selected judges from Garage-Girls. From there, the judges had to make the tough decision of who they felt most deserved the Ultimate Biker Makeover. “Karen’s story of powering through not only one type of cancer diagnosis and treatment, but four was pretty compelling. How does one get through a blow like that? We all just couldn’t get over how tough this must have been for Karen, but were happy to read that riding her motorcycle to chemo and radiation was what empowered her through it all. This confirmed to us all that we needed to help this woman stay out riding on the road. Riding was how she was surviving.”—Sara Liberte, owner of Garage-Girls
Karen will be getting hooked up with a bunch of prizes which include a wardrobe of shoes from Harley-Davidson Footwear, a case of full synthetic oil from Spectro Oils, A new Corbin motorcycle seat, cleaning supplies from Star-Brite Solutions, and surprise gear from S&S Cycle, Memphis Shades, and Bare Knuckle Choppers.
The focus of the Garage-Girls Ultimate Biker Makeover is to “Hook a Rider Up” and help them replace their worn, busted parts and gear.
“For the last 10 years our contest has allowed guys and girls to submit a short story along with a photo of why they need some new gear for their “Body” and “Machine.” It’s a great feeling being able to help a fellow rider get back out on the road with that much needed wind time.” —Sara Liberte, founder garage-girls.com
