Daytona Bike Week has come and gone... the Easter Bunny left baskets full of chicken embryos around the nation... That must mean Spring is finally here!
If you haven't already hit the streets for a little bit o' two wheel therapy, why not? If you are (sadly) still being abused by Mother Nature, you have our deepest sympathy. Hang tight, the sun will be along soon.
Let's get on with it, shall we?

Our random winner for the month of October will receive a $300 Corbin Gift Certificate (yeah, we know it's not very imaginative, but people seem to like it). OK kids, are you ready? This month's winner is:
OK Charles, all you have to do is drop me an e-mail within the next two weeks to claim your prize. The clock she is a tickin'.
*DA NEW FORMAT
We finally gave in...
So now you're either looking at a nicely formatted Corbin newsletter with color and pictures or you're looking at a bunch of HTML junk with some plain ole English mixed in. Yes, we finally bowed to the pressure for something that looks a little nicer than a plain text e-mail. However, with this jump comes problems for those who's computers won't read formatted e- mails.
If this is you (or you just prefer plain e-mail), here's all you need to do... Click on the link at the bottom of this page that says "Update Profile/Email Address ". You will be taken to a web page where you can edit your account information. Click on the checkbox that says "send plain text email". From then on you will get the plain version. Sorry for any trouble.
*BOLT ON SHOW WINNERS
We make it easy!
Robert G. lent us his Yamaha V-Star 1300 for tooling. We developed a Fleetliner Fairing, Chin Spoiler, a set of Fleetliner Saddlebags and a couple saddle models. When Robert got his bike back with all the Corbin goodies, he took it to the Arizona Southwest Star BQ Show. At the show he had received 1st place in "Best of Show"!
Best of Show with simple, bolt-on components! Naturally, we're about as proud as Robert is himself.
We're always looking to keep up with the OEMs and provide rider's like yourselves with beautiful products. One of the latest in a line of new paint options is coordination to the new Tribal Paint available on the Triumph Rocket III. This beautiful artwork is ready to mount right out of the box and coordinated perfectly with the custom Triumph paint. Also in the works are two tone options for Yamaha V-Stars and color coordination to 2007 Harley-Davidson models. Never a dull moment!
*A REASON TO RIDE
Give your Heart to Kids Ride
If you're looking for an excuse to get out and put some air through your hair, how does San Diego sound? Great riding, nice weather and a good cause never hurts.
Coming up June 9th is the annual Channel 8 Give your Heart to Kids Ride to benefit the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation and Camp Hope. The ride will include a live auction featuring 2 Harleys, a kayak, spa, Corbin gear, etc. Besides, it'll be a lot more fun than mowing your lawn!
*BACK IN THE SADDLE
Rich King Returns to Corbin Racing
After a brief hiatus from Flat Track racing, Corbin has returned to field a team in the 2007 series. What prompted this return you may ask? Well, the return of our good friend and former team rider Rick King!
After a few years with Harley-Davidson on the factory effort, Rich is back to fly the Corbin colors. What's more, Rich's son Aaron joins the team to be the only Father / Son team on the circuit. We'll be updating as the season goes on and will likely build a dedicated page on the Corbin site, but for now you can check Rich's site directly at the link below.
Go get 'em Rich and welcome back!
Alrighty boyz and girlz... personally MY bike has been on a battery tender for a couple months and is home waiting for some attention from its number one fan (me). So Chuck is outta here, but we'll be back in just a couple of weeks.
Talk to ya then and ride safe!
