Lehman Trikes

Trikes have become more popular year after year and Lehman Trikes, based in Spearfish, S.D., invited all trike lovers to rev up their engines as they hosted the inaugural “All Trike Ride” and Good Turn Trike presentation during the 71st Annual Sturgis Rally!

Over 150 participants on trikes of all makes and models convened at Lehman Trikes factory on Thursday, August 11th and rode with “threedom” along the scenic highways through Belle Fourche and past Bear Butte to the Legendary Buffalo Chip where Lehman provided a complimentary dinner for all riders.

During the dinner, Ken Hines, President and CEO of Lehman Trikes thanked guests for participating in the first-ever All Trike Ride during Sturgis and gave a heart-felt speech about the Good Turn Trike award and this year’s recipient, Steven Iler.

Ken Hines says: “After 2 months of going through hundreds of applications, our panel of judges, all of whom were Lehman Trikes employees that represent every branch of the U.S. military, felt Steven was the embodiment of a Good Turn Trike candidate.

“Steven has gone above and beyond for our country and continues to use motorcycling as a means to reach out to veterans and active duty military.”

The Good Turn Trike will allow Steven to travel longer without fatigue to his left side, which was injured in Iraq. Steven’s wife Tammy will now also be able to ride with him.

The festivities continued later that evening on the main stage of the Legendary Buffalo Chip during the Freedom Celebration where, in front of thousands of people, Steven was officially awarded the Good Turn Trike.

Steven Iler says: “I would like to thank all of my fellow veterans for their service and thank Lehman Trikes and Victory Motorcycles for this amazing reward.”

Steven’s wife, Tammy also thanked both companies for giving her husband the freedom to continue to ride and support our military.

The Good Turn Trike is an annual program sponsored by Lehman Trikes. This year, Victory Motorcycles generously donated a 2011 Victory Vision to make this the first-ever complete trike given away through the program.

Lehman Trikes and Victory opened the program to all branches of the Department of Defense to honor and thank our U.S. Military. Applications for the 2012 Good Turn Trike can be found on Lehman Trikes website at or by calling 888-3WHEELS.
