Shirt Design DONE!

Sat down with Chris Horvath at Pro Image Graphix Friday night. We came up with a t-shirt design that will surely be a hit. The design will be unveiled at the show on July 17th. It incorporates antique motorcycles with paying homage to Tobacco Days. We are trying to decide on how many shirts to get made up, either 100 or 200. They will be very reasonably priced with all profits going to the charity work that the Car, Truck and Motorcycle show is known for.

Pro Image Graphix is known for their original design and logo work. They have the ability to do large jobs or small. They only use the very best materials as well. Pricing is very fair and honest.

If you need any design work for t-shirts, logo's, vinyl lettering be sure to give Chris at Pro Image Graphix a call at 608-884-3260. They are located near Newville Wisconsin right off I-90.

It was a pleasure to work with you Chris, thanks again!!

We are working with the good folks over at the Second Society on finalizing times and a venue to provide a free screening of their new movie documenting Cafe Racer Culture in the United States.

The movie "American Cafe" premiered in Madison at the Sundance Saturday May 1st to a sold out crowd. Spoke with several attendees of the the movie yesterday during the Slimey Crud Run and heard nothing but great things.

"American Cafe" has also become the official sponsor of the "Cafe Racer" class for this years event. Bring out your cafe bike old and new!

Look for updates on this blog on a final venue and show times.

What A Weekend.............Spring Is Here!!

We would like to take a minute and thank all of the sponsors that have signed up and donated so much already.  The support of these local businesses and the motorcycle community is overwhelming.  Without them this show couldn’t happen. 

Please support our great sponsors (look to the right for their links/information).   

Sharer’s Cycle
On Saturday I'll be riding my black 1974 Moto Guzzi 850T up to Sharer’s Cycle Open House outside of Verona.  Sharer's is one of the oldest Triumph dealers in the country.  Lot’s of history and a great location to ride too.  It’s a great event, with a combination of old timers and “new” timers.  Lyall has done and seen a lot happen in the last four decades.   

Slimey Crud Run
On Sunday (May 2nd) the black 850T and I will once again be riding the Spring Slimey Crud Run.  This is a great event that brings several different types of motorcyclists together for a scenic ride through the beginning of the rolling hills of western Wisconsin.  The weather looks as though it’s going to cooperate so there will be a great turnout. 
I’ll be there handing out flyers to those that would like one for the show.  Don't worry, I'm not the guy who stuffs fliers on peoples bikes......that's too rude. 
If you would like to see a Vincent or maybe a 1927 JD Harley riding down the road as they were meant to, come out and check out the Slimey Crud Run this Sunday.
Don't forget when you're in Leland to get a summer sausage's just like what mom packed in your lunchbox as a kid.
Here’s more information on the Slimey Crud Run:

Day & Location Set!

When: Saturday July 17th
Where: North Henry St in Edgerton WI (See Below Map)

View Larger Map

Edgerton is just a half an hour south of Madison and a little over an hour southwest of Milwaukee.

We are hoping for a great turnout.

I'll be posting more information as the days go on as well as explanations of classes, events, sponsors and what charities benefit from this show.  Something a lot of people don't realize.......this is all non-profit.

A few more fine tweaks on the show flier and we will start mailing them out and dropping them off.  It's taken some creativity for us to add so much information on a 8" X 10" piece of paper and still keep it readable with the bare eye.  If you would like a stack or even just one, let me know and I will get them out to you ASAP.

Also as always any comments are appreciated.

The Show

A few years ago some friends and I rode our bikes up to our towns annual car show in hopes of starting a motorcycle class for the following year. We were told that we would have to enter in the car shows "special interest" class. So, we tossed our entrance fee down, then participated, sat there all day and none of us won anything. Bummer right? Not was motivation.

Of course we thought we were ignored, but turns out we weren't. One of the car show guys explained to me that they being "car" people, knew nothing about how to fairly judge motorcycles. Makes sense. So the journey began. I offered up my services to be in charge of organizing the event and attend all necessary meetings. Last week after much discussion, the car show guys voted me in to be in charge of the first annual Edgerton Tobacco Days Motorcycle Show in conjunction with their car show.

We hope to use this blog to keep everyone up to date on details as the date progresses. There are a lot of exciting things happening and a lot of people that are involved at this point already.
