Considered a master of all aspects of the customization process, from engineering to aesthetics, Dave's bikes are regarded as "art in motion."

"Dave Perewitz has created some of the industry's best customs motorcycles with his signature flame jobs" said Promoter Carrie Repp of R&R Promotions "This show will give every painter and builder the opportunity to compete with their peers on strictly the quality and aesthetic appeal of their work."

Awards will be given in a variety of categories, including best pearl, best candy, best use of color, best artwork, best graphics, best in show and Perewitz best flames. The show runs from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and the awards will be announced at 5 p.m.

This sounds so awesome, I can't wait to see all the customized bikes! Do people typically customize their bikes, or just go with the original paint job etc.? I confess I'm pretty new to motorcycle culture; I just started working as a brand ambassador for Progressive motorcycle insurance, and since then I've become really interested in it. We're actually going to be at Sturgis, which is awesome! We'll be giving away free shirts at our booth at Thunder Road, plus having a drawing to win a custom Sucker Punch Sally's motorcycle. It's beautiful, kind of old school. The shirts are also really nice, exclusive to Sturgis and absolutely free. If you want to pick one up while you're there, just go to ahead of time to download the coupon, then come by our booth to drop it off and say hi! We're going to have other cool giveaways too, so it should be a fun time.

I hope I haven't overstepped my bounds by leaving this comment, I'm just trying to get the word out :) If you have any questions or want more information feel free to shoot me an Email:

See you at Thunder Road, and ride safe!
