Things people did in the 70’s

With our Disco Bike Night coming up this Thursday, we thought it’d be fun to ask people around the dealership what they did for fun in the 70’s. The stereotype is that all things were groovy, almost everyone had an afro, and people still listened to records. 

Steven the tech. had fun swimming, camping, and doing stupid kid stuff. He said he was good, most of the time. LOL Justin in Service jammed out to David Bowie and was still riding on the back of his dad’s motorcycle. He aslo said everyone in the family had a different colored rat tail – mom’s was pink, dad’s was blue, and his was purple! 

Joe from Parts wasn’t married until ’78, and before that he was haulin kegs up into the mountains to party with his friends. Rotten Jack says Red Rocks hasn’t changed a bit since the 70’s! Jack liked to water ski, chill out at bonfires, and says streaking was still in!

Fit Specialist Big Erv graduated high school, went to college, and spent his days tubing down the Sacramento River! Johnnie B. rode his ’72 Sporty from Colorado all the way to Vegas – during the gas crisis even! He said he ran out of gas on his way back, just after Georgetown – but don’t ask us how he made it home! He wouldn’t spill the beans!

A few of the other guys in the Motorcycle Dept. were just born around then, and say all they really remember is watching Saturday Night Fever starring John Travolta in the theatres. 

-Man! I feel like I totally missed out by not being born until the 90’s! What else rocked in the 70’s?Image

The sherrif’s office dedicated a blog to remembering Sgt. Dave Baldwin: #RememberBaldwin

The sherrif’s office dedicated a blog to remembering Sgt. Dave Baldwin: #RememberBaldwin

We were all shocked and saddened to hear about Sgt. Dave Baldwin, who did so much for the community. He was a great friend, and one of the coolest, most laid back guys we had the pleasure of knowing. He was the very first person to buy a bike when we opened as Avalanche Harley-Davidson, and used to hang out with us while he got service work done on his bike. He is greatly missed, and will be forever in our hearts.

Avalanche’s very own Mrs. Adrienne Cook

In the summer of 2013, Adrienne, or as some of us call her “mama duck”, became a member of the Avalanche Harley-Davidson family. Don’t ask how she got her nick name, none of us know either…

Her family has been very supportive of her by attending a lot of the events that occur on and off site at the dealership.

One gentleman who came to almost every event was her boyfriend at the time, and is now her husband Christopher!

The two were wed this fall at Bear Creek Lake Park, shortly after the flood that struck Colorado.

The groom and his men rode up to the wedding on their Harley Davidson motorcycles, and lined them up on the side of the ceremonial cite like horses at a stable.

After exchanging their vows and saying “I DO” the two shared a passionate kiss and began celebrating with friends and family.

Adrienne’s step read an original poem he dedicated to her, and then they cut the cake!! Even a few members of the Avalanche Harley-Davidson staff were able to join the celebration!!

Talk about a fairy tale ending…. The two were even able to ride off into the sunset together on his Harley to their honeymoon!!
