Twenty years in business is a big milestone for any company. On October 25, hundreds of trikers and bikers rode to Troup, TX, headquarters of Motor Trike, Inc. to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary. Almost 700 people traveled from all over the country and abroad to show off their Motor Trikes and tour the manufacturing facility. Guests came from as far away as Australia to participate in the event.

The ‘Grand Prize’ drawing winner received a full trike kit. Gerald Malik, holding the certificate, already had his GL-1800 converted, so he gave the prize to his close friend, Edwin Skloss.

Guests enjoyed facility tours, demo rides, live music, lunch and the chance to meet other Motor Trike owners. Linette Douvio won a $500 cash prize for the best looking Motor Trike and Mertline Thibodeaux was awarded a $500 cash prize for the best looking Stallion. They are both from Duson, LA.

The grand prize drawing for a free trike kit went to Gerald Malik from Karnes City, TX. Mr. Malik already has a new Motor Trike Razor kit on his GL-1800, so he told a close family friend, Edwin Skloss before the rally that if he won he would give the kit to him. Mr. Skloss and Mr. Malik have been friends for many years and used to be old riding buddies. Over time, Edwin had become disabled and has not been able to ride. This new trike kit will give him the ability to ride again. This kit is scheduled to be installed at Motor Trike in December.

“It was a wonderful event and everyone had a great time,” said Jeff Vey, Motor Trike President. “We will have to do it again in five years for our 25th Anniversary!”
