Industry Pulse: Arlen Ness Enterprises sign up for Big Bike Europe

By | General Posts

Arlen Ness Enterprises are among the latest in a slew of market leaders to sign on to exhibit at the upcoming BIG BIKE EUROPE expo.

BIG BIKE EUROPE is the all-new custom and performance industry expo concept for catering exclusively to the international parts, accessories, custom, performance, service, workshop and tuning vendor community.

A 'non-selling ProGrade' expo, BIG BIKE EUROPE is also the new, permanent host event for the acclaimed AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building (2013 will see the World Championship mark its 10th anniversary and first ever appearance in Europe).

BIG BIKE EUROPE is a three day expo offering exhibitors an innovative and unique new Invitational/Open-admittance attendance strategy.

The first day (Friday May 10th, 2013) is an "Invitation Only" day set aside for motorcycle dealers, custom shops, custom motorcycle builders and customizers who receive invitations from AMD magazine and the expo exhibitors themselves.

In turn invited dealers are able to register and invite up to 25 of their best customers and high mileage large displacement motorcycle riders, as their own 'VIP Riders' for complimentary three-day all-area expo access as their own guests, compliments of BBE's exhibitors.

The weekend (Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th) is open to general public, rider and enthusiast attendance with tickets available from as little as €10 a day (approx $15.00).

It is estimated that some two-thirds of the value of the European motorcycle market resides with the one-third of European riders who own 'Big Bikes' (source: ACEM).

In addition to a local population of some 18 million "high percentage motorcycle ownership" consumers (within a 100km radius of Essen, Germany where BIG BIKE EUROPE is being staged), research suggests that some 60 plus percent of Europe's franchised motorcycle dealers and custom shops are within a three, four or five hour ride of Essen.

It is further estimated that some 65 percent plus of Europe's large displacement road-registered motorcycles, of all kinds, including Harley-Davidsons are within a 500 to 600 km radius of the venue (sources: International Motorcycle Industry Index, Moto Big Book, AMD Magazine, International Dealer News).

Bonneville Land Speed Racing Vincent Streamliner and Marvel of Engineering debuts at SPRINGSHOW 2013

By | General Posts

 

Direct from the Salt Flats at Bonneville, Altometheus 2, the amazing 3-wheeled salt racing motorcycle, will be a feature of the ‘Bikes of the Century’ red carpet display in Hall 3 at the International Centre on the weekend of March 16 & 17.

Altometheus 2 is 20 feet long and was built to race the salt flats by engineering genius John Renwick of Great Britain.  John also built Altometheus 1 which is now in the hands of a private collector in Italy.  Altometheus 2 is a recent acquisition of motorcycle collector and SPRINGSHOW Founder, Bar Hodgson.

The rig’s Vincent engine is 1650cc, with a combined horsepower of 120 on methanol fuel and an additional 60hp when the nitrous oxide is triggered, for a total of 180hp.  The streamliner posted 205 MPH at Bonneville in 2012, without utilizing the nitrous system, before the front tire (from a Harrier jump jet) blew and the parachute was deployed. 

Followers of Bar Hodgson’s exploits may recall that in 2007 he raced the Arrow Streamliner at Bonneville and crashed at almost 200 MPH sustaining moderate injuries and was able to walk away.

The SPRINGSHOW highlights the Canadian debut for Altometheus 2.  It is a great opportunity to see this genuine marvel of engineering and design.  The bodywork will be removed to display its mighty Vincent engine, nitrous system, 16inch diameter cockpit, and other internal workings.

A Bike Week call for motorcycle awareness

By | General Posts

A tractor-trailer cut sharply in front of Nikki Cope's pink-trimmed Yamaha. The 23-year-old motorcyclist swerved and survived. But not everybody is as agile — or as lucky — on two wheels.

"I think we've all had some really serious close calls," said Cope, shaking her head as she recounted her most recent narrow escape during a motorcycle-awareness rally Sunday in east Orange County. "Motorcycles can be hard to see. They're small. But people are always in such a big hurry on the road. They don't take the time to look."

With the approach of Bike Week, Cope and three dozen fellow bikers waved signs and stood together in the cold at Colonial Drive and Rouse Road, urging people to be watchful for motorcycles and to look twice before changing lanes or turning right at a red light.

Bike Week, the 10-day, rumbling homage to Harleys that is reputed to be the world's largest motorcycle event, begins Friday in Daytona Beach, filling Central Florida's roadways with hundreds of thousands of visiting bikers.

Cope has a special reason to ask people to look cautiously when driving.
