Cyclerides.com Weekly Update
3/30/05
 

Greetings Riders,
 
Ladies and Gentlemen...Start your engines! It is that time of year again, and I have to admit, I am getting excited to see all of the bikes start rolling into Arizona from all over the United States for the 9th Annual Arizona Bike Week. As a lover of motorcycles, it is really cool seeing bikes literally every where you go for the entire 10 days. So get your bikes shined up and ready to roll, this is our time of year to showcase our State and share some time with others who share our passion.
 
Arizona Bike Week officially starts on Friday April 1st and runs through the 10th. And as always, on large events like this I like to get a sneak peak to see how things are going so that I can give you an accurate report of what to expect. There were a few issues last year with the layout and the ground preparation so I decided to take the trip to Rawhide on Tuesday to see how things were going. I had been informed by one of the new owners of Arizona Bike Week, Ed LeClere,  that there were some positive changes that were happening this year. So I was anxious to take the nickel tour to see what we might expect for the 9th Annual ABW.
 
The first concern I had was the preparation of the ground at Rawhide. Most of the negative feedback I got last year was the dust and the dirt that we had to deal with in and around the venue. I was told that this year they had changed the company that did the ground treatment and that I would be pleasantly surprised with the results. They were not kidding, this new process is 100% better than last year. We drove a car around the track and there was ZERO dust. You will be impressed. Click Here for some pictures to see for yourself.
 
While taking my tour around the grounds it sure felt like ABW has taken a step forward in raising the bar to make ABW a contender in becoming a National marquee event. And with the endorsement of Harley-Davidson corporate as a sanctioned event this year, it is well on its' way to becoming just that.

Here are some of the highlights that I saw and what I was told: 
Appearance:
Lack of dust - Without any predicted rain, I think the dust problem has been solved. There are plenty of treated areas to ride on in the venue and it is extremely solid. Click Here for pictures of the ground.
Tents
- They have adopted the same tent look that you saw at the OCC event.
Entry
- Everyone will enter from the NE corner of Williams Rd. just South of Rawhide. You can either park on that corner and walk in or ride your bike into the venue and park on the track or down below next to the vendors. A nice touch.
Exit
- You will ride through the tunnel and exit on Williams Rd. You will have to turn left as you exit on Williams.
Activities: Gates open at 10:00am daily.
 
The Vietnam Traveling Wall will be erected on site. A 385 Ft. replica of "The Wall" will be on site and available for viewing 24/7. You will be able to walk in anytime after event hours. There will be 2 large tents with Veteran art work, memorabilia and computers so that you can look up a name and go to that section of the wall. Paper and pencils will be available to trace the name. Dedication of the wall will be at 6:00pm, Friday, April 1st at Rawhide. You can ride with Superstition HD and escort the wall to Rawhide on Thursday, March 31st. Meet at the Gila River Casino. Ride leaves at 11:00am. Click Here for details.
 
Handlebar Saloon - The Handlebar will get a huge makeover every night to represent the theme of the day. The first night will be "Celebrate America". If what I was told, turns out to be as good as it sounds, you won't want to miss it. It will be a celebration. Many of the other nights sounded very festive as well and will keep the Handlebar "fresh" every day. Sunday is "50's & 60's" day. There will be music every day as well as the Texas Hold'em Tournament and billiards among other events. You will also find a lot of top bands including the Marshall Tucker Band on Friday April, 1st.
 
Vendors - There will be 170 vendors. Among the highlights will be a test track for quads, dirt bikes, etc. by Arizona Motor Sports. This year a lot of the metric manufacturers will be there with their trailers also. Vendors will be placed all around the track as well as down below. Several custom bike builders will be displayed inside. Biker bull riding and lawnmower races will be at the track. I might even try my luck on riding a bull this year. You can also see some the big horsepower numbers at the ABW Dyno Horsepower Competition.
 
Auction Area - This year there will be a separate area West of the Handlebar to go and enjoy a little quieter time than in the Handlebar. They have installed some sod that will have tables and chairs, live music and refreshments. And good place to go and relax. This will be surrounded by the bikes in tents that will be up for auction. Nice idea for getting away from it all for a little while.
 
Outside Activities - There are several events going on around the city with Charity Rides and Dealership Events. See below for the highlights of those. When you are out riding around town, the hot spot to hit all week long is The Billet Bar with the newly remodeled Patio Bar located at 3752 N. Scottsdale Rd. This place will be packed all week. And Sugar Daddy's, located at 3102 N. Scottsdale Rd. is also welcoming bikes all week. This would be a good place to stop for lunch, dinner or some refreshments on the 5000 sq. ft. patio.  
 
Costs - $15.00 for a 10 day pass. You can get a $5.00 off coupon at the participating dealerships. Day pass April 1-3, 8-9 is $10.00 (no discount). Day pass April 4-7, 10 is $5.00 (no discount).
 
With the weather supposed to be in the mid 80's all week, I am expecting record crowds and participation this year. This should be a very good Arizona Bike Week. Be sure and say hi if you see myself and Mrs. C. around. See below for my review on the ABW rides and events and the Extras Column at the end for more information.
 
If you didn't see last week's newsletter, Click Here. I had a lot of details about ABW that you might not know. Below is a recap of some the information from last week with some minor changes.
 

As I see it, Arizona Bike Week is made up of 3 components. There will be the "Rev Up" parties at the participating dealerships (Arrowhead, Buddy Stubbs, Chandler, Chosa's, and Superstition), Rides and Events every day, and entertainment, live music, vendors and food  at Rawhide and the Handlebar Saloon. What will make the Handlebar more interesting this year is the daily changing of themes and the music to complement that. The first night kicks of with "Celebrate America".
 
Since it is impossible to do everything for ABW, you will have some decisions to make of what you want to attend. But here are a few of the rides and events that I have had experience with or that I think will be good and worth checking out.

If you have ridden through Cave Creek lately, you have probably noticed the new Cave Creek Roadhouse. If not, you will want to take a ride out during Bike Week and see it. 
It is the new building located directly across the street from Harold's. This will be the "place to be" in Cave Creek for riders. Assuming the City signs off on everything they are planning to open for business on April 4th. I will let you know about the Grand Opening plans.
 
Congratulations to
Custom Performance for placing 1st and 2nd in the Daytona Bike Week Horsepower Competition with bikes that they built. 1st place was an turbo charged FXR built by Custom Performance that produced 247.6 horsepower. 2nd place was Nick's turbo charged Custom Heritage that produced 228.0 horsepower. Both bikes were built with the Custom Performance "Turbo Your Harley" bolt on kit that they sell at their shop. You can easily add 50 hp at 8 lbs. of boost on pump gas to your bike and maintain reliability with one of these kits. I rode the Vrod they built that was producing 160 hp. Disneyland only wishes they had a ride like that. Call Nick at 623-879-8488 for a quote. It is by far the best horsepower for the dollar that you can get.
 
As for me, I will be with camera in hand taking pictures during bike week. Look me up and say Hi to get your picture on the site.
 

Until Next Week,
Blessings and Safe Riding To All,
