Sammye (Granny2Wheels) Shipman is a well-known personality in the Motorcycle Views Forum, an accomplished long-distance rider, and an all-around pisser in general. Her ride is an 1100 V Star that she has put over 9k miles on this season alone.
Shipman was initially thrilled upon hearing that her name had been drawn for the dinner prize, then asked, “This is from Twisted Roads? Are they cooking dinner and mailing it to me or is this a case of Kraft macaroni and cheese? What's the joke?”

"Having dinner on Twisted Roads"
David Case is a member of the venerable Mac-Pac Eating and Wrenching Society and a committed BMW rider. Case loves nothing more than spirited run through backroads of Amish farm country or the deep woods of four neighboring states. Sometimes he tries to hit them all in one day. One of his most loved rides is an R80ST.
Said Case upon his prize notification, “I’ve never really won anything significant before. And I probably still haven’t.” Case claimed he was once selected by Twisted Roads to test the prototype of an inflatable seat, and put 200 miles on it before he realized it was one of those cushions that makes fart noises.

This is what you get when you tell a Beemer rider "To smile."
Maybe it's the seat.
Jack Riepe, author of Twisted Roads, congratulated both winners, urging them to continue to read the blog, and to reenter the contest after a 90-day cooling off period.
“I am delighted to present the first of these monthly awards to these fine readers. Twisted Roads is written for motorcycle riders who appreciate stories with punch and a punchline,” said Riepe. The blog publisher then went on to deny that he was the mystery rider associated with the red German motorcycle, the Jell-O, and the sorority in recent headlines.
Once a month, two Twisted Roads readers who leave a comment (squeal) at the end of a story are randomly selected to win a $50 gift card to a chain restaurant in their state. For complete contest rules, go to Have Dinner On Me!
