I know, you never expected a motorcycle based company to censor
images, but the one attached to this message was just a bit too
gory to send along as-is. Under the obligatory black bar was a ...
I can hardly say it... a... a... STOCK SEAT! *GASP!*
Yeah, that was downright silly, but Mike would butcher me out of
hand if I sent out a pic of a stock seat. However, we wanted you to know we've got the new ZX-14 in-house and are starting tooling
of a new seat system. It just so happened a bunch of cool hotrods
pulled up in front of the shop and make for a great photo opp, so
we couldn't resist. Will have more info and pics soon.
* ARMED FORCES DAY
Last saturday was Armed Forces Day here in the US. Although there
is much controversy over military actions around the world (of which we will not publicly comment) we feel it appropriate to honor our brothers & sisters in service of our country. Since
Chuck is something of a hack in the literary department, I'll
borrow a couple of quotes from some well spoken countrymen instead:
"It is fitting and proper that we devote one day each year to
paying special tribute to those whose constancy and courage constitute one of the bulwarks guarding the freedom of this nation and the peace of the free world."
President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1953
"...Word to the Nation: Guard zealously your right to serve in the
Armed Forces, for without them, there will be no other rights to guard."
President John F. Kennedy, 1962
"Armed Forces Day, above all, honors the dedicated individuals who
wear the uniforms of their country. Each serviceman, wherever he may be, whatever his task, contributes directly and importantly to
the defense of the nation. The task of each one is the task of all
the Armed Forces: to protect the freedoms which underlie the greatness of America."
General Earle G. Wheeler, 1967
Former Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff
* APRIL WINNER
Technically, the time is up for GENE HAUBRICH to claim his Corbin
Gift Certificate as our April winner. However, since we didn't publish a newsletter last week (and therefore no reminder), we're
going to cut him some slack.
Gene, you an extra few days to claim a $300 Gift Certificate. Send
me a confirmation mail by 12:00 noon Thursday (05/25/06). If
I don't hear from you, a new name will be drawn and the prize will
be reassigned. Send confirmation mail to: email@example.com
That cracks me up! I love it when folks aren't afraid to make a
little jest at their own expense. In this case, we've got a great
group of gals (six to be exact) who have planned a riding vacation
the likes of which many dreams are made. 31 days on the road traversing 31 states... just them and their bikes. Not only do we
admire what they're doing, but we're jealous.
Upon their departure, they plan to update their website daily with
details of their adventures. Departure is scheduled for June 26th
and as we mentioned you can follow their trail online at the site
mentioned above. Sponsored in part by our good friends at Ironworks magazine (www.ironworksmag.com).
* MORE RIDES
OK, the Oldbagsonbikes ladies just aren't going to let you tag along with them (trust me, we asked!) However, if you're looking
for something to do, how 'bout a cruise through the beautiful
San Diego area and join the "Give Your Heart to Kids" ride? A
good cause and some great riding... you can't go wrong. Scheduled
for June 10, 2006.
For complete info go to: http://www.capfsd.org/link_pages/event.html
This one's a biggie for your pals at Corbin. The Americade rally
is home for riders of Touring bikes, Sport Touring bikes and Cruisers... That makes it a natural for us (of course). Make a trip to the Adirondack mountain region this year and check out the
new Corbin Goldwing Master's Type saddle or the hot new modular setup for the Yamaha FJR 1300. Fresh out of the Corbin Skunkworks
and on their way to Lake George, NY.
* RALLY SCHEDULE
The push is on for all those new parts and the trunk will be on its way to:
Lake George, NY
June 5 - 10, 2006
June 21 - 24, 2006
Good luck to Gene Haubrich in scoring the April prize. If we don't
hear from him by Thursday we'll pick a new winner and send out
a mid-week note to all with the new winner's name.
Until then Happy Trails,
