Stories from AIRHAWK users

Monday, March 21st, 2011

One of the best parts of going to rallies and shows is getting to meet the people that use our products. Daytona Bike Week was only my second rally that I have been to since I started with the company less than a year ago and I was able to meet some fantastic people. As someone who sits at a desk most of the time, it’s great to be able to venture out and hear what people who use our products are really saying. We love hearing your stories and testimonials so please keep them coming and thanks to those who have submitted them!

The AIRHAWK team met Sheila Hager, an AIRHAWK user down in Daytona at Bike Week on March 7. She sent us photos that she took of a hummingbird that landed on her AIRHAWK. It looks like the hummingbird wants to go on a comfy ride, too. Thanks for sending us these photos, Sheila!

The AIRHAWK crew is ready for Daytona Bike Week from March 3-13. If you rode down on your AIRHAWK (or even if you didn’t) stop by and see us in the parking lot of J&P Cycles (253 Destination Daytona Lane, Ormond Beach, FL 32174).

Bike Week’s 70th anniversary won’t disappoint with several events planned by multiple vendors and businesses all over the Daytona area. Approximately 500,000 people travel to the area for the 10-day event. There will be bike rides, motorcycle racing, parties, performances, street festivals and more.

Participate in everything from Fastlane’s 7th Annual Motorcycle Swap Meet Extravaganza at the Volusia Country Fairgrounds to the Miss Florida Biker Bikini Contest at Thunder Gulch Campground. Paul Jr. will also be signing autographs on March 11 from 1-3 p.m. in the J&P Cycles Exhibitor lot.

Not to mention that Mardi Gras falls right in the middle of the festivities. So come out to Daytona and say hello to the AIRHAWK crew.

 

P.S. Here’s an awesome action shot of the Asspad Tycoon on his way to Daytona.
