Greg Noonan, owner of Insight Media Enterprises in Cooperstown, N.Y., celebrates his victory in the auction of a 2012 Heritage Harley Davidson to benefit the NADA Foundation and Canine Companions for Independence. Noonan's winning bid was $20,000, but it was matched by a donation from fellow sales consultant Joe Verde, who won last year's motorcycle auction, boosting proceeds to $40,000.|
"They say the guy with his hand up last lost the auction," joked Noonan who describes himself as a pet lover and welcomes animals to stay at his upstate New York property.
He added: "I wasn't planning to buy the bike, but I had to."
