R.W. Moore Equipment Company, a full-service John Deere equipment dealer, will host the Second Annual Deere Run to Kernersville on May 5.
“When we began to think about our clients’ interests, we discovered a common passion for motorcycles,” said Dan Moore, president of R.W. Moore Equipment Company. “Therefore, we created an event that is centered on that common passion. This passion for riding, coupled with the need to learn about the latest models of John Deere equipment has led to our employees, vendors and customers having a fantastic day together.”
This year, more than 120 riders are expected to make the 100 mile trek from Garner to Kernersville, where they will have lunch and tour the Kernersville facility to view the manufacturing of excavation equipment. Beginning at 8 a.m., this full day event will include a complimentary breakfast at R.W. Moore. Arrival back to the Garner facility is estimated at 4 p.m. R.W. Moore also includes a complimentary gas stop each way for all riders.
Moore hopes the event will allow his employees and customers to get to know one another better. The 2006 line-up of riders includes new and established clients, employees from all six R.W. Moore locations and vendors who all share a passion for motorcycle riding and, for that matter, heavy equipment.
“This event is a fun way to get our clients involved with R.W. Moore,” Moore said.
Shelton’s Harley-Davidson, Team Powersports and Wake Technical Community College will also be in attendance to demonstrate their products and services prior to the departure time.
Last year’s event gathered more than 60 riders from all over the country. This year, participation is expected to double.
The 2005 ride showcased a wide array of motorcycles including choppers, cruisers, sport bikes and touring bikes.
