2022 OBB Silent Auction
Nov 19

This year's Annual Silent auction will be held in the Main Ballroom at the Carriage House Inn.  Very posh, we're moving up from beef 'n bun at the cowboy bar.  First class high end buffet dinner, the best most amazing auction items ever, and lots of fun to be had.  Meet your friends, make new friends, chat bikes and bike trips and the best part, purchase wicked items at bargain prices.  As always, 100% of proceeds go directly to helping injured riders. 

Someone present at the Silent Auction event will walk away with a new motorcycle.  This year, Grover Law Firm generously donated two high end motorcycles to be given away.  All season long, at every event that OBB attends we give away free tickets for one of the bikes.  From all those entries, one lucky ticket will be drawn on the night of the Silent Auction.  That person, whether attending or not, will have their choice of which bike they would like.  Either the 2022 Ducati Panigale, 1103cc, V4 sport bike, or the 2022 Harley Davidson Pan America 1250 adventure bike.  

Once the person decides which of these two high end bikes they'd like to take home there will be a draw from all the tickets purchased for the Silent Auction.  One lucky person in attendance will win the second bike. In other words, the odds are pretty good for winning a prize that's worth $30K+!!

About the Bikes:

2022 Ducati Panigale.  An Italian V4 sport bike, 1103cc. A high performance, high tech motorcycle that embodies the maximum of Ducati values,  style, sophistication and performance.  The new Panigale, with all the recent improvements in aerodynamics, engine, chassis, ergonomics, and electronics, result in a bike that's even faster on the track and at the same time increasingly intuitive and less fatiguing. High performance in the hands of the professional rider and rewarding for the amateur.

2022 Harley Davidson Pan America Special. The next chapter in a century of legendary V-Twin motorcycles. A liquid cooled, 1250 cc V twin, 150 HP.  Pan America is a rugged take anywhere motorcycle. Designed to maintain high-speed ride and handling performance even when at the limit of its luggage and weight capacity. Flick a switch and choose one of 5 ride modes, from street to rain to off-road. Tuning your bike for power delivery, engine braking, cornering enhanced antilock braking, and traction control. Makes the bike safe to ride and an enjoyable experience.  Click the button below to check out Red's review of the Pan America Adventure bike.

What is a Silent Auction anyway?? 

For months leading up to this event we have many volunteers working tirelessly to procure auction items from local and national businesses who generously donate their products for this charity event.

On the night of the event the products will be out on display around the Ball Room. You'll have several hours to browse the products. If you see something you like you write down your name and your bid amount.  At the end of the night the bid sheets are examined and the highest bidder wins that item. It's fun and strategic.  How much should I bid? Not too fast, you'll look too interested. Don't wait, someone will run up the price. You decide your strategy.
