Mustang Goes To Daytona

  Riding season is finally here and Mustang Motorcycle Products, LLC is more than ready! Celebrating the company’s “It’s All About The Ride” mantra, they are taking to the road with a new look and a new big rig to help launch 2013 in style as part of the Bike Week festivities in Daytona Beach, Florida. You can’t miss the rig at the Speedway. “After 30 years of making the world’s most comfortable motorcycle seats, our focus has shifted to the ride ahead,” says Mustang’s Product Manager Matt Kulman. The new logo and big rig are just a hint at the new products that will make their debut in Daytona. “Mustang now has seats for the Gold Wing, with Triumph T100 and Victory Cross Country seats coming very soon.” Matt adds, “we have several other exciting additions to our full range of seats for metric cruisers and Harleys® to be announced very soon.” Some of this excitement stems from collaborations with Küryakyn and racer-turned-designer Roland Sands. “Working with talent like this has resulted in cutting edge designs that are combined with Mustang’s well-established reputation for comfort.” “It really is all about the ride,” remarks Kulman. “While we are proud of the fact Mustang seats are still handcrafted in our historic facility in Three Rivers, Massachusetts, we also recognize that it was time for some change. Now is the time to get the message out to a new type of riders who might not know Mustang’s history or quality.” To help get the word out, Mustang is taking its rig on the road, starting with Bike Week in Daytona. “Trailer queens get a bad rap, but we are pretty proud of our new tractor/trailer,” Matt quips. “Seriously though, stop by the Mustang display at the track to win Mustang swag.” At […]

What to do at Night in Daytona Beach During Bike Week 2013

  Bike Week is only two weeks away. With all the bike festivities going on during the day and all the vendors set up at the J&P Cycles Destination Daytona Superstore helping customers with their questions, surely people are looking for a way to unwind at the end of the day. But what is there to do at night in this town? Simple! We come alive at night, and so do many others! Here at the Coca-Cola Pavilion, located within the Destination Daytona complex, you can expect to see many bands performing on stage like this year’s featured artist Shooter Jennings, alongside with Diablo Canyon, plus Stephen Foster & Howler. If you’re in the market to grab a bite after the day’s madness, I suggest you pop over to Houligan’s for the ultimate meal before heading off to all the parties. Beyond the Destination Daytona Coca-Cola Pavilion lies the Ormond Beach US 1 strip chocked full of world famous bars and saloons like the Iron Horse Saloon, Annie Oakley’s, The Broken Spoke, and last, but not least Smiley’s Tap & Tavern just to name a few. These are some of the most famous saloons known to bikers across the board. They provide a super friendly biker atmosphere, bike parking, great food and drink, and tons of bands perform live daily during the event. These places tend to get packed very quickly, so if you’re looking to get a great spot for any of the nightly concerts, it’s best if you go early and reserve a place to hang out! Got an itch for trouble? Don’t worry; Main Street in Daytona Beach has got you covered! You can expect to get wild at places like these world famous bars: The Full Moon, Dirty Harry’s Pub, the legendary Boot Hill Saloon, Froggy’s,

Marines, sailors get revved up for motorcycles

The growl of motorcycle engines ripped through the morning air and pistons fired as riders with helmets pulled into the parking lot of a barracks here, Feb. 15. The Marines and sailors assembled at the barracks to meet with Staff Sgt. Shannon J. Zigan, the new motorcycle safety representative for 2nd Maintenance Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, to discuss future events and their shared love of motorcycles.  The battalion's command wanted to encourage motorcyclists to ride together more often so they can apply safe practices into their riding. “Next month on the 22nd, I’m planning on possibly doing a car and bike show,” Zigan explained to the Marines before him. “It’s going to be a spring safety event, but it’s not just going to be motorcycle related. I might get some of the motorcycle-police riders out in town and some of the other local companies to come and give you guys some ideas of what to do.” Continue reading
