In the midst of the excitement surrounding the Daytona Beach Biketoberfest set up, an associate at J&P Cycles’ Iowa headquarters received a phone call from an editor at the Daytona Beach News Journal. The newspaper wanted to send a straight-laced reporter into the store to be outfitted as a biker and do so the following day.
Always up for any challenge, J&P Cycles reached out to staff in Florida who jumped at the opportunity. Andrew (the reporter) came into the store as a typical reporter and came out of the dressing room very different.

The Time Trial Extreme Grand Prix, a three-continent series that features electric-powered motorcycles, will stage a five-lap sprint race over Daytona's 3.56-mile road course.
“This is something new and special and appropriate it should happen at Daytona,” Speedway president Joie Chitwood III said.
These bikes are quiet but they are not hush puppies.
Williams, a trooper for Illinois State District 20, is getting a chance to be West-Central Illinois' version of Ponch or Jon. On Monday, he became the district's first full-time motorcycle patrol officer in 14 years.
"You're about invisible out here on a bike," said Williams, who has been with the Illinois State Police for 5 1/2 years. "You can see more violations when you're on the bike. We're looking for texting and cell phone use."
Williams said curbing distractive driving is one of the Illinois State Police's highest priorities right now. He said riding a motorcycle gives him a better look into cars when he passes them.

Our friends over at Klock Werks are raffling off an awesome 2010 tricked out Victory Kingpin next Friday, Oct. 26. The bike, Tattooed for Life, honors two men close to the Klock Werks family who were tragically killed in different accidents and represents the importance of organ donation.
Twenty-nine-year old Vic Briggs, a Klock Werks team member, was lost in automobile accident in late June of 2011.
Austin Shimon, 20, a close friend of the Klock Werks family, passed away after a motorcycle accident in 2009. Both Vic and Austin were organ donors, and through their selfless gifts, were able to save the lives of others awaiting organ donation.
The team at Klock Werks decided they wanted to do something to pay tribute to their two lost friends, and also something that would provide financial support through a trust fund to Vic’s family. Vic left four children behind, ranging in age from 9 to 1.
Victory graciously donated the motorcycle and Klock Werks tricked it out, café style, just as Vic would have wanted. Tattooed for Life features many characteristics of Vic from the gas tank featuring Vic’s tattoos to the front fender displaying “BR” in honor of his children, whose names all begin with “Br.” A guitar on the tail section is in remembrance of Austin.
Tickets are $20 each or six for $100. The drawing will be held promptly at 7:30 p.m. CT next Friday (you do not need to be present to win) at Klock Werks in Mitchell, South Dakota. To purchase tickets or learn more about Tattooed for Life, click here.
