Our trip to CA



DP & I visited my "uncle Bob" in Southern California before we went to the IMS show in Long Beach. We toured several hot rod shops and also visited the Peterson Museum. We went to Walden Speed Shop, Moon Eye's, Baurer Speed & a few others. It was a great trip, other than the weather was at bad as New England! Ok so maybe not as bad but definitely not "sunny California"!

Perewitz at Biker Bash Ft. Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale Motorcycle Show

Bikers from across the country will be converging on Fort Lauderdale this December 2-5 to start this year's holiday season off with a bash by attending the 12th Annual Fort Lauderdale Harley-Davidson Bikers Bash.

The Southeast region's premier motorcycle event, this year's bash will consist of a number of police-escorted rides to the area's hottest spots, great food, bars, live music and casino fun all to benefit local Boys and Girls Clubs.

Weekend festivities will kick off at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for the Bikers Bash VIP event and will culminate at the South Florida President's Council 23rd Annual Christmas Toys in the Sun Run, the world's largest motorcycle parade sponsored by Seminole Hard Rock Roadhouse.

Last year's motorcycle Toy Run drew thousands of bikers and raised over $750,000 to benefit the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Foundation. Since the first motorcycle Toy Run 21 years ago, bikers and supporters have raised in excess of $7,000,000 used for cancer treatments and other special needs for kids as well as feeding thousands of needy families during the holidays.

Another highlight of the weekend will be the Bikers Bash VIP event at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Hosted by the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Seminole Tribe of Florida, the event will include dinner, live entertainment, and a charity auction to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County. Last year's charity auction raised over $175,000.

Attendees at this year's Bikers Bash celebration will also have the opportunity to witness a number of great bikes from an impressive line-up of builders. Motorcycle builders lined up this year include Todd Silicato of Todd's Custom Cycles, John Shope of John Shope's Sinister Industries, Dave and Jody Perewitz of Perewitz Cycle Fabrication along with Eddie Trotta of Thunder Cycle Design.

Todd Silicato - Custom motorcycle builder and fabricator from Huntington Beach, California, Todd Silicato has been building custom cars and motorcycles for most of his life. Builder and owner of Todd's Cycles, Silicato's custom built motorcycles and motorcycle parts have been featured in countless motorcycle magazines worldwide.

Creating a blend of old-school craftsmanship and modern, state of the art technology, Silicato's bikes look and perform like no others in the industry.

John Shope- A premier custom motorcycle builder based in Phoenix, AZ, Shope is founder and owner of Sinister Industries which specializes in custom ground up bike builds, one off motorcycle parts and custom hotrods. For over 20 years he has been building the baddest and most creative bikes seen on roads and highways throughout the nation.

Dave and Jody Perewitz- Dave Perewitz is considered one of the deans of the custom motorcycle industry. Founder and owner of Perewitz Cycle Fabrication in Bridgewater, MA, Dave Perewitz has over 30 years experience building and customizing motorcycles. A self-taught designer, mechanic, painter and fabricator, Perewitz's one-of-a-kind, hand-built choppers are a delicate blend of engineering, design, performance, power and personality. Perewitz's daughter Jody has also taken to the family business.

Around motorcycles since the day she was born, Jody has had a hand in building numerous motorcycles as well as focusing her talent toward the marketing and growth of the Perewitz name to an instantly recognizable brand. Through these efforts she has gained the respect and admiration of the motorcycle industry in her own right.

Eddie Trotta- You have undoubtedly seen Trotta's custom choppers on the Discovery Channel's Biker Build-Off series, in person on the Hard Rock Custom Bikes Tour, or have caught a glimpse of one ripping down the road. Trotta who owns Thunder Cycle Design in Fort Lauderdale, FL, designs motorcycles that are so distinctive you know that it's an Eddie Trotta.

Trotta has built hundreds of motorcycles with his name plastered all over TV and in bike magazines throughout the world. With a clean and classy look, Trotta's bikes have lines similar to those of an elite sports car.

The combination of these two premier events raised over $250,000 for local charities last year and they're anticipating raising even more this year. Come and join thousands of bikers as they celebrate their passion for riding while helping the children of Southern Florida.

A rocking time for a great cause, you won't want to miss this year's Bikers Bash festivities. For more information regarding this year's event visit bikersbash.com.

August Bike Night!

Thank you to everyone that came out to Bike Night. The last one for 2010 will be Wednesday September 8th. We are having it a week early because Dave & I will be going to Sturgis of Asia in South Korea!













Monday, August 16, 2010

Check us out in Korea!

STURGIS -- People in Japan, South Korea and China will soon have a taste of the Sturgis rally without having to come to Sturgis, courtesy of a new company, SturgisAsia.

The company, headed by Tom Bandy, has a booth at the Motorcycle Expo next to the Sturgis Community Center on Lazelle Street.

Bandy, of Rochester, Minn., has been a rally licensee for a dozen years and has been attending the rally for nearly 40 years.

“I had a dream to bring Sturgis to the rest of the world,” Bandy said.

It has taken him a few years, but his organization now has its first trip planned: It is heading to South Korea Sept. 17-21.

SturgisAsia will fly participants and their motorcycles to South Korea.

The program in South Korea will include a hill climb, a mini moto cross, a rock concert, a traditional Korean performance, a custom bike show and a biker fashion show, plus plenty of riding through the South Korean countryside.

He said he figures to draw tens of thousands of South Koreans to the events.

“They’re gobbling up western culture,” Bandy said of the South Koreans.

In South Korea, the tour will hold a Support the Troops Day for American and South Korean military. Accompanied by American service personnel, the tour group will ride up to the demilitarized zone, Bandy said. He said he visited a military base in South Korea and commanders are enthusiastic about the visit.

VIPs signed up for the first trip include custom builders Arlen Ness, Cory Ness, Eddie Trotta, Dave Perewitz and Donnie Smith, as well as Harley-Davidson artist Scott Jacobs and Michele Smith, host of “American Thunder” on the Speed Channel.

Next year, SturgisAsia will take a group of bikers to South Korea and Japan. In 2012, it plans to visit South Korea, Japan and China. And in 2013, it will add Australia to the tour.

Bandy said he didn’t know how many people were signed up to make the trip.

The South Korea trip runs about $3,500 for two people, according to the SturgisAsia web site. But Bandy said prices vary, depending on the travel package chosen.
