Keith Kennedy, of Calera, Okla., was notified November 17, 2006 by the Harley-Davidson Motor Company that his name had been drawn as the Grand Prize winner in the 2007 Wide-Open House Sweepstakes. About a month later, Keith received an early Christmas present when he visited the local dealership, Texoma Harley-Davidson, of Sherman, Texas, to pick up his 2007 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle on December 23, 2006. "The ride home was great!" said Keith.
In addition to the Fat Boy, Keith received a certificate for $10,000 in Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories and a trip for two to Milwaukee, Wis. to meet with Motor Company styling representatives to help him select just-the-right accessories to customize his new motorcycle.
Even thought his trip to Milwaukee isn’t until April 13th, Keith already has some ideas for his new Softail. "My wife, Cindy, is my best friend and enjoys riding as much as I do. So, I’m fairly certain I will put the new sundowner touring seat on along with passenger backrest, windshield, highway bars, and chrome wheels. Beyond that, I’m going to rely on the H-D styling department to advise on what I should do next."
Currently, Keith owns a 2004 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic which was purchased new in Sept. of 2004. It is the 9th motorcycle he has owned - but his first Harley-Davidson. Since winning the 2007 Fat Boy, people have asked Keith if he will sell one of them. He replies, "Absolutely not! I waited almost 40 years to get a Harley-Davidson and now I have two…I have no plans whatsoever in selling either one!"
