We’ve collected all of your guys (and gals) photos, we’ve had a vote and now we have the winners for our “Gear Up for Sturgis Contest!” We were originally going to do just three (3) winners, but in the end we loved the first two pictures so much that we decided to do two (2) first place prizes!
And the winners are…
1st Place Winners
For Gina’s picture we just thought it was a clear, beautiful image of a woman truly enjoying her bike. We loved the background and the quality of the image, and it made us happy that she appeared so happy.
We really loved John Smith’s shot of the beautiful, white and chrome bike and the beautiful gray sky with the white clouds. We don’t know if he planned that color arrangement or not, and we don’t care. We just know it’s a great looking picture and we’re proud to call him a winner!
Both Gina and John have won themselves first place, and they will both receive a pair of Xelement boots, a pair of Xelement fingerless gloves, an Xelement classic leather jacket, an Outlaw Half Helmet and a $100 LeatherUp gift card! Both of them will be so decked out the next time they ride they will probably need to spend the gift card on some kind of awesomeness repellent, just to keep all the observers and photographers at bay.
2nd Place Winner
Finishing in a very close second, we love Justin’s photo and his clever use of a certain beverage to act as a temperature-controlled seating apparatus. It’s a photo that, again, just made us all very happy to see, and we thought he did a fantastic job of just looking badass and cool at the same time.
Justin has won himself a new Outlaw half helmet, and is going to be able to pick up some more sweet gear from LeatherUp with his $100 gift card. Congrats, Justin!
3rd Place Winner
Last, but definitely not least, is Bonnie. Bonnie’s picture was black and white, but came across in a full spectrum of awesomeness. It’s a simple shot with a simple background, but we just loved how much it says about bikers and biker culture. A picture really is worth a thousand words, and in Bonnie’s case it’s also worth a $100 gift card!
We want to quickly thank all of you who sent in your images, and there were honestly so many that it was extremely hard for us to narrow the choices down. We thought about picking images out of a hat, but we ended up deciding that the only real fair way to pick the winners was to reward the people who had some of the best shots of themselves and their bikes.
We’ll be having a lot more contests as the year goes on, so be sure to stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as to keep reading everything we post here, at the official blog of LeatherUp.com.
Live to ride, and ride to live!
