Huntington Beach, Calif. - Spring Forward... We had a beautiful afternoon in Huntington Beach today. It almost seemed like we were back to normalcy. Castañeda's had inside dining and 75 people showed up to share their bikes. We had a wide variety and fierce battle for Bike of the Month.

Probably because of the the time change, we had 45 people at 2:00 ready to go.

BAM: Breakdown and Legal Assistance for Motorcyclists
All of the marketing reps for Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneyswere at Daytona Bike Week promoting their BAM program. Learn more about it at:

Honorable Mention to Baird Bergenthal of Midway City with his 1963 Testi Grand Prix. Baird again showed up with a unique motorcycle. His 1963 Testi Grand Prix turned a few heads today.

Thanks to everyone for showing up and making this another great event. A special thanks to John Zindler for helping out with the voting today. Debbie and Tom Hopkins were unable to attend today, I look forward to seeing them again soon.
