Rev Up Your Engines for the Key West Poker Run

2013 Key West Poker Run posterCalling all motorcycle enthusiasts! Mount up and get ready for the 41st Annual Key West Poker Run. Its too late to sign up online but you can still sign up at either of the Peterson Harley Davidson stores in Miami.

Starting Friday, September 20th, join more than 10,000 motorcyclists (actually trucks and cars can participate as well) from around the world and travel down one of the most scenic highways in the nation, Overseas Highway. With the blue sky overhead, the sun at your back, soft tropical breezes, and the clear blue waters all around you won’t even know you are in a race. There are 5 stops on the way down where you can purchase your poker hands to win the grand prize – a brand new Harley Davidson Sportster 883 Iron or $6000 good ole hard cash. Buy as many hands as you want as all the money goes to charity.

At the end of the road in Key West, the party is in full swing with 8 blocks roped off for live bands, food, cold beer and a wild street party.

Friday join the Hog Roast Welcome Party at Schooner Wharf from 5PM-midnight just to get you revved up and in the spirit (or spirits as the case may be).

Key West Poker RunSaturday morning check out Rick/Durty Harry’s for a fantastic bike show from 9AM-3PM with trophies given in each class, and of course you can’t miss the Duval Street Party running all day and night from 7AM to 2AM.
