Daytona Bike Week logo

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.

New app records bad driving

Friday, December 17th, 2010

A new free app, DriveMeCrazy, encourages drivers to report bad driving behavior. The app is voice-activated and allows for users to record the license plate, date, time, location and offense. It allows you to “vent or flirt, write a traffic ticket and look up a driver’s record.” You can not only flag bad drivers, you can also leave messages for drivers that you find attractive.

The most important part is that the information from the app is then sent to the DMV and your insurance company. Insurance currently relies on data from police departments and the state’s motor-vehicle bureau.

I do have to wonder whether someone will be able to dispute the claim? If you get a speeding ticket, you can dispute it. Will this be an option if insurance companies do start using it? Another question comes into play if there are multiple drivers on one car?

The company behind the app is working on algorithms that would be able sort flags from malicious and relevant data. For example, there will be safeguards against one driver flagging someone else multiple times.

On the positive side, you will finally be able to send messages to the hottie on the motorcycle next to you. There’s even a section under search that you can see the hottest drivers and listen to the messages.

What do you think? Would something like this encourage you to drive more safely?

Happy Veterans Day

Veterans DayTomorrow, November 11 is Veterans Day. Each year the Veterans Day National Ceremony is held at Arlington National Cemetery to honor and thank everyone who served in the United States Armed Forces.

History of Veterans Day

On May 13, 1938 an Act was pass to dedicate the 11th of November each year to the cause of world peace and be named Armistice Day. In 1954 legislation approved November 11th as a day to honor American veterans of all wars. On October 8, 1954 President Eisenhower issue a Veterans Day Proclamation.

“In order to insure proper and widespread observance of this anniversary, all veterans, all veterans’ organizations, and the entire citizenry will wish to join hands in the common purpose. Toward this end, I am designating the Administrator of Veterans’ Affairs as Chairman of a Veterans Day National Committee, which shall include such other persons as the Chairman may select, and which will coordinate at the national level necessary planning for the observance. I am also requesting the heads of all departments and agencies of the Executive branch of the Government to assist the National Committee in every way possible.”

Remember to wear protective gear, even in the summer

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

As the summer heats up, especially this year, we want to remind all of the motorcyclists to wear your protective gear. Staying cool is no excuse for staying safe. Many states require riders to wear DOT-compliant helmets and eye protection. Wear boots that cover the ankles, long pants and a riding jacket. Built-in body armor is also a good addition.

Visit the Motorcycle Safety Foundation website and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website for more information.

We hope that you have a fun and safe Fourth of July weekend.
