Thanks to the Coziahrs, bikes are blessed for 26th year

Thursday, May 17, 2018

Despite a lack of cooperation from the weather, the 26th Annual Blessing of the Bikes event at Coziahr Harley-Davidson, 150 W. Marion Ave., in Forsyth, was held on Sunday, April 15. This popular event comes around each year to start the beginning of the riding season, and it attracts large numbers of motorcycle enthusiasts.

To pull it off, Market Street was temporarily closed for a big part of the day with the help of two deputies from the Macon County Sheriff’s Office helping direct traffic and riders.

The event, which gets started at 8 a.m. and runs until around 4 p.m., carries on rain or shine, unless the weather gets too hazardous for riders and guest speakers.

Tim and Debbie Coziahr, owners of Coziahr Harley-Davidson, were gracious hosts and also got blessed for the start of their riding season.

Hannah Willhite, who handles marketing for Coziahr, said the day would not happen without the effort of many.

“We are so proud of our Decatur Chapter H.O.G. (Harley Owners Group) for continuing to do such a great job executing the Blessing of the Bikes — they make it run so smoothly,” Willhite said. “This year, we had 57 H.O.G. volunteers to help direct, greet, stage and count bikes and riders.”

Willhite also praised the Christian Motorcyclist Association and GT Church for doing “a wonderful job with the service and blessing.”
