Happy Waitangi Day!
Actually, that was last monday, but I just couldn't bring myself
to wish you all a happy valentine's day (by the way gentlemen...
it's next Tuesday!) Besides, it is becoming increasingly difficult
to have a unique salutation every week. Anyway...
* NEW SEATS & OLD FRIENDS
If you haven't checked out the attached JPEG yet, it contains our
new seat design for the Yamaha Majesty (their maxi-scooter) and a
pic of our buddy "Jack" from Corbin Germany. Mike and Jack have
been friends and business associates for nearly twenty years as
he services the Deutsch market with fine Corbin accessories. (A
shameless plug there eh?) Jack spent most of the week here with us
at the factory making plans for 2006.
Oh yeah, and the Majesty? Cool new two piece design with adjust-
able seating and passenger backrest option. We should have it
online early next week at: http://www.corbin.com/new/new.shtml
But you know about it first!

* OUR WINNER
Don "Gypsy" Williams was right on top of it and responded in
plenty of time to claim the January prize. He scored himself a
$250 Corbin Gift Certificate which as he says "Hmmmmm... what
shall I buy for my wicked 04 Fatboy?!" Congrats Don and thanks
for reading. Next winner will be pulled in three weeks.
Just so you know... Waitangi Day is celebrated every February 6th
in New Zealand in honor of the signing of the treaty of (you
guessed it) Waitangi. This controversial agreement between Queen
Victoria and chiefs from over 500 Maori tribes was signed in 1840
and is considered New Zealand's founding document.
In modern days it is a time to celebrate documents in general...
in fact, many have used the occaision to send gifts to editors
of news letters and the like (hint hint). OK, I made that last
part up, but you can't blame me for trying.
* HOLLISTER RALLY 2006
Tuesday February 7th the Hollister Free Lance reported our City
Council had turned down a last minute proposal from a third party
to fund and organize the Independence rally. After roughly an hour
of discussion, the council voted 3-2 to adopt a resolution stating
the rally would not take place on public land in 2006.
The general concensus is that people are going to come anyway and
this editor agrees. Says Hollister Mayor Robert Scattini, "That's
the nature of the beast. It's the birthplace of the American Biker."
Corbin's plans for the annual event are still under consideration,
but we'll keep you updated.
* SHOWTIME REMINDER
Corbin's Ride-On new season begins February 21st, 2006.

* NEXT EVENT
Bike Week is just 'round the bend. Our truck is back at the factory
and is loading up for the big season opener on the east coast.
We'll have two areas available where you can check the Corbin goods
first hand. 777 Main street hosts our showroom and look for the
Corbin show truck in the Destination Daytona area near the HD shop.
Daytona Beach, FL
March 3 - 12, 2006
Well kiddies that wraps it up for this week. We hope you found it
fun and educational... or at least fun. And to any of you ladies
who read the opening statement and may think I've forgotten about
you... Not so! I specifically said "gentlemen" because it's
common knowledge it'll be the guys that forget Valentine's day.
Just stirrin' the pot a little!
Until next week, Happy Trails!
