Thumb Vote For HackyMoto

If you have ever attended D2D you know that Hacky (Chad Yoshitomi) is a remarkable rider. When you watch him you will find yourself thinking, "Oh no!!! There is no hope, he's going down." Then there is a roar of an engine a cloud of dirt and out emerges Hacky with a shit-eating grin on his face. He is Mr. Excitement on a motorcycle. Chad is one of six finalists to be selected as a representative on the US team that goes to the BMW GS Trophy Challenge in South America. For some inexplicable reason, BMW wants to select riders based on how many Facebook votes they get. If riding skill were the deciding factor then Chad would be an obvious choice, but he needs your vote. If you are not on Facebook now, then join. Cast your vote and then ignore the account for a month, then cancel it. Sign-up your spouse, kids and pets and let them vote. If it is beyond your ability to sign-up, then find a teenager to help you. If you don't vote for Chad, then you will not be permitted to attend D2D, ever.

I also voted for HackyMoto. I guess I should have my son and granddaughter vote too, so maybe some year they can attend D2D. Next summer looks iffy for me again, due to other fun trips I'm contemplating.

Done.

But sounds like there may be issues with the whole process.

Good luck, Mark H.

Thanks KHuddy for starting this thread
There's a glitch. If you click on anyone's pic.(profile) YOU HAVE JUST VOTED I'm towards the bottom so be careful how you scroll.

ON the road in Yerrington,NV

Legion started a thread in Jo Momma too: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=829680

Be careful in voting tho. Click on a pic or profile and you've cast your vote w/o being able to go back and change anything.

Good luck, Mark H.

This should be a hot link.

I went there, group of pix showed up & I clicked on Chad’s pic. Got a message that said ‘Thanks for voting’ I also got a log in/ sign up prompt somewhere along the way.
I ain’t on FB but I aparently just voted. Could not get back in to the original page or refresh it. When I try I just keep getting the ‘Thanks for voting’ message.
Cool!
