Gettysburg Bike WeekGettysburg Bike Week Geared Up for 2017 Rally July 6-9th

Foghat and 50 Shades of Men Two of Many Acts Booked for GBW 16th Anniversary

Press Release: Back for its 16th anniversary rally at the Allstar Events Complex in Gettysburg, PA, Gettysburg Bike Week kicks off Thursday, July 6, 2017, and runs through Sunday, July 9.

“Hard to believe this is the 16th year, but you know what they say about time flying and having fun,” said GBW event coordinator Kelly Shue.

This year, GBW is proud to feature English rock band Foghat and premier male revue 50 Shades of Men among this year’s entertainment slate. Both acts perform Friday night. Formed in England in the early 1970s, Foghat has sold millions of records and rocked audiences for decades. Known for their distinctive slide guitar sound and boogie woogie rhythms, Foghat continues to bombard FM airwaves to this day with classic rockers like “Slow Ride,” “Fool for the City” and their hard swinging version of Willie Dixon’s blues banger “I Just Want To Make Love To You.” You can’t help but shake what you got when Foghat hits the stage.

Gettysburg Bike WeekAnd for the ladies, GBW is happy to welcome the best male burlesque show in the country. Composed of national and international touring Chippendales past members, 50 Shades of Men is the premier male revue performing today, delighting women everywhere with “disarmingly sexy, yet very tasteful routines. Designed exclusively for women [they] combine a perfect blend of music, hot dance moves and sensual theatrics,” and the ladies are sure to love it.

Other top-flight music acts for this year’s rally include the Hank Williams, Jr., tribute band All My Rowdy Friends and country music sensation Craig Campbell; both play the Budweiser Main Stage on Thursday night. And on Saturday evening, Blizzard of Ozzy, the country’s preeminent Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne tribute band, and 80s hard rockers Warrant will be bringing it to the people.

And of course that’s just the tip of the entertainment iceberg, because legendary emcee Jack Schitt is back again to perform master of ceremonies duties throughout the week on the Budweiser Stage, Gin Gypsies will be slinging the drinks, and this year’s rally will feature a cornhole tournament (directed by York Adams Cornhole). Expect performances by the International Bikini Team as well, heavy competition in the Cycle Source Ride-In Bike Show, Ride and Rodeo; the Parade of Chrome; and that perennial crowd-pleaser, the GBW wet T-shirt contest. One, two and four-day passes are available here.

And, of course, no rally would be complete without great riding, and Gettysburg has some of the best. Whether riders want to see historic battlegrounds or just hit the road for a great cruise, hundreds of miles of the best riding in the East surrounds Gettysburg. In addition to fantastic solo riding, GBW also features awesome group rides and the Pink Journey of Lights and Stars of Hope Charity Rides.

Pricing for Gettysburg Bike Week is as follows:

  • $40 per-person 4-day passes, available online and at the gates.
  • $25 per-person 2-day passes, available online and at the gates.

There’s so much to see at So Cal’s Born Free Show – from choppers, to race bikes, Dynas and FXRs, baggers, trikes, minibikes, flatheads, knuckleheads, shovelheads, panheads.. we could go on and on.

Born Free hosted it’s first flat track race at the infamous Costa Mesa Speedway, where the “run what ya brung Harley night” was a huge success. Many of the hooligans started on this very track! Check out some behind the scenes action in the pits, some on the track action from S&S employee Todd, and all the fun we had at this awesome event.

Big Win – MC’s Stop ‘No Motorcycle Colors’ Policy in Colorado

ColorsBig Win – MC’s Stop ‘No Motorcycle Colors’ Policy in Colorado

By David “Double D” Devereaux
Motorcycle Profiling Project

Royal Gorge Bridge and Park (RGB&P), located near Cañon City, Colorado, recently adopted  an over broad policy of discrimination against any individual wearing motorcycle-related patches or colors. So the National Council of Clubs (NCOC), an organization representing the interests  of motorcyclists nationwide, immediately protested the decision in the form of a written  complaint to RGB&P management.

Normally, private actors such as RGB&P cannot be sued for 1st Amendment restrictions because there is nothing unconstitutional about private actors discriminating. However, RGB&P leases the land from Canon City exposing the government actor to civil rights liability for the discriminatory acts of the private party.

After receiving the NCOC’s letter of complaint, RGB&P management contacted NCOC attorney Wade Eldridge and informed him that all “no motorcycle club colors” signs had been removed from the park and that the park reversed its policy. The NCOC verified on June 10th that all  signs have been removed. NCOC participants, members of motorcycle clubs including 1%’ers, have been granted access to the Park.

This is an important win for the NCOC and the motorcycle club community generally. Many motorcyclists frequent RGB&P and some club members have even had their ashes spread at the park.

Silence is consent. Grassroots political opposition is one of the most effective strategies for tangible change, as demonstrated by the NCOC.

Mustang Deluxe Super Touring

Super TouringMustang Introduces Deluxe Super Touring for 1997-07 FL

By Popular Demand: More Room for the Driver!

Press Release: Early FL requested a stylish touring seat that allowed them to sit back further, so Mustang re-designed their top-selling Deluxe Super Touring style seat to fit 1997-07 FL models. Engineered to provide truly uncompromising comfort for both riders and their passengers, the one-piece seat features a unique custom stitch pattern on high quality expanded vinyl, styled along the lines of state-of-the-art automotive interior designs.

Mustang’s new Super Deluxe Touring seat allows the driver to comfortably sit back an extra full inch as compared to the stock seat. The 19” wide front bucket angles the body for long-distance comfort and provides ample lumbar support. For all-day back support, add the matching driver backrest kit for a fully adjustable and easily removable backrest that can be folded and stored.

Of course, long distance touring is more fun two-up, so the engineering team focused on the passenger seat to make sure it measures up to Mustang’s high standards. The generous 14” wide rear seat is properly contoured for comfort, providing support across its full width and keeping the passenger firmly in the comfort zone. Now both rider and passenger will be happy to spend more time in the saddle!

As with all Mustang seats, the marine-grade fiberglass baseplate, proprietary comfort foam and individually sewn covers are proudly handcrafted and assembled in their New England facility (tours are available by appointment).

For more information, visit www.MustangSeats.com or call Mustang at 800-243-1392 or 413-668-1100. Feel the Mustang difference!

Laid Back ManorLaid Back Manor

A Biker Bed And Breakfast

This is Clean Dean Shawler. Almost two decades ago, I met Amy Irene White when she began her career as a biker journalist by freelancin’ for Easyriders. Now she’s my lady and we have built a bed and breakfast in Green Mountain, Iowa, right down the street from my bank that I live in called Laid Back Manor.

Laid Back ManorIts built for and by old scooter tramps, so you can bet yer Harley that you can find everything you need, including things like a bunkhouse where you can pull your scoot in outta the weather and even a hot tub in the best little bathhouse in Iowa. Amy cooks food that will make you wanna go home and slap yer ol’ lady, and has a keen sense of what it takes to make you feel right at home. Plenty of fine beddin’ and interestin’ things to see make it a really great little place to ride to. We are centrally located in America making us a convenient stop on many of your travels. There are many historical places to check out, and some great ridin’ roads in between.

Laid Back ManorOh yeah, Vietnam Vets stay for free, and all other vets for the year they were born. We have discounts for ABATE and patches and Weasels, too!

I think we have a great lil’ place here, our friends can tell you how much fun they have when they visit. Many of you have met Amy over the years. Whether you encountered her on the streets of D.C. or the beaches of Daytona… whether she was in a suit and heels hot on the heels of Donald Trump, or marching hellbent for leather across Texas in red cowboy boots… there’s one thing we all have to agree on, if she says she’s gonna do something, she’ll get ‘ER done.
