Weekly Update

Greetings Riders,

If you missed the newsletter last week with the story of my visit to the Martin's Auto Museum complete with photos, Click Here to View.

The calendar is turning to February which means a couple of things. Number 1, prime riding season here in Arizona is upon us. Forecasted temperatures in the valley are starting to creep into the upper 80's which means that we are in for some great riding temps both in the valley and up North. Believe it or not, it is supposed to be in the high 70's and low 80's in Sedona next week giving us some perfect riding opportunities. Time to check the tires, get the oil changed and put on some true road miles.

The Number 2 thing is that we are now only 72 days away from the start of the Arizona Bike Week festivities which will begin on Wednesday, April 11th - 15th. This year at Westworld, ABW will be featuring Live Music with Collective Soul on Wednesday, Chevelle on Thursday, Shinedown on Friday and ZZ Top on Saturday. There will also be On-Site RV and Tent Camping, Flat Track Racking, Stunt Shows, Bike Shows, Vendors as well as other activities throughout the day. You can buy an Event Pass for $58. This event pass will grant you access to WestWorld for all of the days of Arizona Bike Week at WestWorld. This includes attractions, vendors, entertainment and ALL CONCERTS. Daily passes are $25 for Wednesday and Thursday, $30 for Friday and Saturday, Sunday is Free. Click Here for tickets.

Another big event happening on the other side of town during Arizona Bike Week is Phoenix Bikefest, April 12-15, presented by Law Tigers. This event will once again be held at the Peoria Sports Complex in Peoria, AZ featuring the popular PBF Ride Through Experience and Tiki Bar. Many of you have rocked out with them in the Spirit Room in Jerome, and this year we are excited to welcome a long time Arizona Favorite band, "Llory McDonald and Combo Deluxe" Live in the Ride Through Experience for 2 shows on Thursday and Saturday from 1-5PM.  Phoenix Bikefest will also have a large selection of Free Factory Demo Rides including Harley-Davidson, Indian, Suzuki, Spyder and Slingshot. On Friday, bring your bike to the bike show for cash prizes. There will be Vendors, Food Trucks and this year will welcome the addition of a Side by Side section featuring Polaris, Can Am and others.Stay tuned for more details.

And to complete the trifecta, The Roadhouse in Cave Creek will also be doing the Cave Creek Bike Week April 6-15 at the Roadhouse and The Hideaway Grill in Cave Creek, AZ. They will be featuring Live Music daily, Bike Shows, Stunt Show and Charity rides as well as vendors, a 10 day bike build, Builder Games and other activities.

So make your plans to take some time off, get your bike ready to go and visit all of these events happening the second week of April. See you there!

Please Ride Safe!
