Garage-Girls and GEICO Motorcycle are proud to announce this years Ultimate Biker Makeover winner; Matthew Palmer. Matthew was selected among over 130 entries to this years contest from the story and photo he submitted. 

Contestants (Girls and Guys) were asked to submit a 600 words or less essay – describing why they are most in need of a biker makeover as well as a photo. Deadline for entries was July 8th 2015. Submissions were narrowed down to the final four by selected judges from Garage-Girls. From there, the judges had to make the tough decision of who they felt most deserved the Ultimate Biker Makeover.   Matthew will get to take home all the prizes which include; A wardrobe of shoes from Harley-Davidson Footwear, a case of full synthetic oil from Spectro Oils, A new Mustang Motorcycle Seat, a set of tires from AVON Tyres, Motorcycle Helmet, Jacket AND Gloves by J&P Cycles and Roland Sands Designs, clothing by Hinjinx Apparel, Bikers Choice and MUCH MORE!!  GEICO Motorcycle made the official announcement live on stage at the Buffalo Chip during this years 75th Sturgis Rally. 

matt (1)SGT Matthew Palmer; a medic in the United States Army for the last 5 years, sent in a story of a horrific accident he endured on his motorcycle.  “Coming home from Camp H. M. Smith on a sunny Oahu day when I was forced to make a life or death decision.” Just some of the words Matthew used to describe his incident. Told he may never walk normally again, Matthew is determined to ride again. “The bike and I were badly hurt. Once I got to the hospital I was told I had a broken leg and arm and that both would require surgery to fix properly. I was also told that the cops never got the individual's information before he left, leaving myself and my insurance to foot the bill.    

I don’t know if I will ever walk properly again or have  full recovery in my hand but I will ride again. That is why I think I should be given this prize package. Not because I want you to feel sorry for me; but because I want to show everyone who has been in an accident and not gotten back on the bike or for everyone who is too afraid of what could Garage-Girls and GEICO Motorcycle are proud to help Matthew along during his recovery.
