Getting Ready for Riding Season! Let's Go!
It has been a long cold wet winter here in Northern California, but the excitement is building as we head into spring. Everyone at Cruiser Customizing is starting to get their bikes and gear ready in anticipation of the epic rides and adventures that are sure to come with the warm weather.
The Cruiser Customizing Community is now fully buzzing with excitement, proving that other parts of the country have had enough of the long winter as well. We are lucky because we can usually ride year round were we are located, but it seems like the weather provided less opportunities this year.
The one good thing that comes from being denied is the determination not to let one minute of good weather go to waste. Let's make a pact to "RIDE" whenever we can. No burning daylight, no driving the car when we can hop on the bike instead. Not only will it be more fun, but we'll all save some gas money as well.

The 70th Annual Daytona Beach Bike Week took place April 4th through 13th officially kicking off the Rally Season!
As usual the event was highly "eventful". Certain Cruiser Customizing Staff Members attended this year's festivities, but their names are being withheld to protect the guilty, and they aren't talking either.
There are still plenty of Rally Events on the horizon. They are great opportunities to get some quality saddle time, meet up with old friends, make new friends, and share your passion for motorcycling with others. Motorcycling is a lifestyle that needs to be shared with others, and rallies are one of the best ways to do that.
Here's the 2011 Major Bike Rally Lineup!
