RideR

Female

Does your bike have a nickname? It’s my green machine! How long have you been riding? I have been street riding for 7 years and just started track days in 2010. My husband and I have 5 kids; so riding is off and on, depending on the kid’s schedule. We would go out for a ride, and have no place in mind to go, but being out there is so much better than sitting in a car driving. How you got started riding bikes? I was a passenger for a few years before actually getting on a bike myself. One day while riding as a passenger I realized that if anything should happen, I have no control what so ever—I’m just along for the ride. The next day I signed up for MSF course and received my license about a week later. What bikes do you own? I currently own a green 2005 Kawasaki zx636 with custom Two Brothers “Twilight” twin under tail exhaust and custom lime green LEDs. Favorite riding spot? My favorite riding spot right now is on the track at Streets of Willow Springs. Especially since they have re-paved the track, its smoother and tires just stick to the track, so I can push myself further. I love the tight turns and the technicality of it. Do you ride your bike around town? Yes, we ride to local bike nights, Cantina Lounge in Fullerton on Wednesdays and Frisco’s in City of Industry on Thursdays. We have a few friends that we cruise around with every now and again. Riding around town is a great stress reliever after a long day/week. What kind of looks do you get when people see you riding? I get a lot of surprised looks when they see me riding. Sometimes people will roll down their window at a stoplight to tell me that it’s good to see women riding more. What is your favorite Motorcycle? My favorite bike is my own. I love the twin under tail and the performance of the bike. The 2005 zx636 is the fastest 600 that Kawasaki has made to date, so performance can only get better from here on out. I love the aggressive body positioning. Funniest riding moment? My funniest riding moment was coming home from bike night with the guys. We had split traffic to the red light and was waiting for it to change. Right when the other light turned yellow, CJ hit my kill switch and turned my key off before taking off. I’m sitting there trying to find neutral to turn the bike back on and take off with cars and the rest of the bikes behind me. You can call that my most embarrassing moment too! Scariest riding moment? My scariest riding moment was at SOW, my second track day, July 2010. In my attempt to catch and pass my husband on the front straightaway, I forgot to lean right for turn 1 and I went right over the top of the ledge into the dirt. I was so focused on passing him, I lost focus of where the track was going. Luckily, I saved the bike from falling by dragging my feet, but I came to a sudden stop and didn’t pull the clutch and it stalled out in gear. I had to walk back to the top of the ledge to tell the flag guy because no one saw me go off the track. I was so scared that I was going to lose it and my geen machine would be wrecked. Ive seen people crash and break bones and I did not want to experience first hand what that feels like. Canyons or highway? Both. We ride canyons when we have a free day and a sitter for the kids. Highways mainly when we ride to an event like moto gp or AMA’s. We also do Toyride, a 60 mile Freeway charity ride every year in November. (see toyride.org for info) Do you ride track? We just started riding track this year and its awesome. We rode at Streets of Willow twice this summer and I’m addicted. It’s a great place to open up the bike and not worry about cars or cops. You can push yourself as far as you want. I drug my knee on my second track day, it was such an awesome feeling, I came off the track and was jumping around with excitement. Who is your favorite racer? My favorite racer is Roger Lee Hayden of WSBK. I followed him through AMA’s and wild card for Moto Gp. His AMA pit crew knows me on a first name basis and they are awesome people. When Tommy Hayden was riding with him in 2005, I received his windscreen off his race bike after AMA race in Fontana, CA. Then to have Tommy Hayden sign it, was icing on the cake. Even though the windscreen would fit my Green Machine, I would cry if it got stolen at bike night. I have it hanging in the garage next to my Kawasaki banners. What is the future plans for the shop? We continually strive to carry the products in stock that our customers are requesting. I am planning on bringing in a Women’s line of leathers, boots, and gloves. As a woman, it’s hard to find variety and/or the size that you are looking for. Our dream is to expand and be a dealer for bikes and host a bike night.

weet not sour, the first look makes your mouth water like eating a candy apple Jolly Rancher. This Los Angeles native who grew up in the City of Commerce, Jesus Rendon built this sweet candy apple Green Harley out of his Garage with a little help form his twin brother Ruben. He first started out riding a 2005 Suzuki GSXR 750 that he customized. He felt he was getting a bit crazy on it so he thought he would trade it in for a Harley. Ironically he had a very bad accident on the Harley. While in the hospital he was going to give up riding, but he soon felt that he get back on the bike and ride. This Santa Monica car dealership automotive technician who started out building lowrider cars (as you can tell by the beautiful detail) Jesus bought a basic Harley Davidson rode it home took it apart to start the transforming it into a beautiful show bike. He felt he can handle it so he picked up a manuel for torque specs and went at it. He did all the Disassembling himself after work and on the weekends in his spare time. His twin brother did the paint in his garage. They painted the bike not once but twice cause he didn’t like the first color. Wanting it to really pop so they went with two different candy apple green shades with two different flakes. Now to top it off he took it to Edgar from Maxima Imagen for the silver leaf. Jesus went all out with one off rims with a staggered fitment, etched cylinders, custom air filter, and chrome everything down to every bolt. This LA native really shows the true lowrider culture.

BABCOCK’S GSXR 750

All young men want to join the circus. Well at age of ten Ryan rode his first motorcycle and the passion began for two-wheeled machines. He watched his cousins ride and they taught him. Ryan lived in the city and he began to dream about owning a street bike. He worked his way from his first ride on a 1995 Yamaha 400 dirt bike to a 1999 Honda CBR 600. The dream came true, now he began to want a bike that was like no other. The Honda was a good start on learning the basics of customizing and riding. Soon he purchased his GSXR and it was on. At first it started out as mayhem buying parts here and there. He went on ebay and bought part after part, but when they came some that said chrome were just polished and it didn’t look correct. So back to the drawing board he went. Ryan took the gsxr apart and chromed everything. Now it was on to the paint. First mayhem got a sick wrap and it was time to show it off. After attending a few shows he felt it was time to take it to that next level. Ryan had become friends with Tony Sesto, a master builder that has created works of art. Tony put his hands on Mayhem and with that Circus Mayhem came about. A beautiful white paint job some flake and top shelf airbrushing gave the gsxr that push it needed for the next level. Still not satisfied and always wanting to go forward we might see Circus mayhem going back to tony for a little 240 makeover. Look for this beauty at a show taking top honors or at a bike

WestCoast BikeFest

The last weekend of September went out with a bang for the motorcycle community. Everyone was pulling into Laughlin, Nevada on Friday, September 24th as Bike Fest was getting the show on the road. Bike Fest kicked off the weekend with a pool party! As the stunters were practicing under the scorching sun for Stunt Farm’s Flatland Freestyle finals, the rest of the people were enjoying their day poolside. Several West Coast Bike Crews came out to join the fun and had a great time by the pool. As the pool party came to a close, the night continued into the morning at one of Laughlin’s hot spots, Club Inferno at the Edgewater Hotel. The next day began with the Flatland Freestyle Championship presented by Stunt Farm held in a 328x100 surface area. This entire event consisted of multiple vendors and a Bike Show-Off judged by Cycle Path Magazine. Even though Saturday was much like Friday, a blazing hot day in Laughlin, the turnout for the West Coast Bike Fest was unbelievable. As the event came to an end, the winner Chris Higdon was presented with a trophy for beating the competition in the Flatline Freestyle Championship & Brandon Hochman won best of show with the Hatti bike in the Bike ShowOff. Hugo “Juice” Tenorino from ELA Bikers won Best Chrome, Richard “Chrome” Corona from Illegal Riders won best paint, and John Morales won Best Performance Bike. The Flatline Freestyle Championship and Bike Show-Off along with the rest of the event festivities were a great success. Mack 10, Glasses Malone, Suga Free, DJ Quik, and a few other artists closed out The West Coast Bike Fest with an unforgettable concert! Glasses Malone started the line up followed by Mack 10 who brought back the WestSide Connection vibe from the past. The stage then welcomed with P-Town, Pomona’s one and only Suga Free. A huge roar from the crowd welcomed the grand finale performer on stage, DJ Quik. Being the true performer that he is, DJ Quick put on a great show providing the crowd with his own music and vocals. The crown could not get enough throughout the concert! The participants of this great event ended it with a night of partying once again at one of Laughlin’s hot spots, Club Inferno. We hope to be back at next year’s West Coast Bike Fest, Bigger and Better!

Street Bikes
hile searching for the midtown tunnel on my vacation in New York, I stumbled across a local bike shop. As I walked into the shop I notice gorgeous stretched street bikes with massive monster rear tires. And after seeing these bikes I had to write about and share these pieces of art with everyone. So I asked to talk with the owner and get his story. The name of the shop is called StreetBike NYC and the owner is John and his story starts with his passion for motorcycles and riding them on the open road. John started out in a small garage building bikes for himself in 1991. But fueled by his big ideas and competitive drive john started StreetBike NYC. The man was on a mission from day one to rewrite the book on custom street bike on the east coast. John always had ideas to do what hasn’t been done, from the custom building the exotic paint jobs. Johns bike builds are purely amazing he takes the blank canvas and brings out the true potential with the stretched out swing arm and massive rear tires. When asked. John stated the longest stretch he has done on a bike was 20 inches. That would be the longest stretch he’s done so far. He also went on to say that the largest tire he has put on a bike is a 360 because it was a legitimate size and comfortable to ride. These guys ride their bikes hard and fast so comfort is a must. Unlike Southern California our family on the East stretch and big tire everything. John commented that we take these bikes on the highway, track, or mountain roads and rip them up. Tire size/stretch, no problem. They do work mostly with street bikes but also have had the opportunity to build some choppers and Harleys. With John’s constant thirst to one up every bike he’s built lead him to his current project witch he only describes a Hayabusa with a crazy set up, that comes from a ma who’s definition of crazy is at a whole other level. So I look forward to seeing that project in the near future. What else is in the future for StreetBike NYC? Maybe Johns Diamond Bike idea with 150,000 handset diamonds on a street bike. What the future will hold for StreeBike NYC is that they will continue to crank out bikes that speak for themselves as art and machine.

1 What is the biggest tire you have applied to one of your builds? The biggest tire i have put on a bike was a 360 because it is a legitimate size and still a very enjoyable ride. 2 What is the longest stretch? 20’’ long is my longest stretch on a bike so far. 3 Do you build choppers or incorporated a chopper/street bike mix? Indeed we’ve built street bikes mixed with the chopper flavor and the results were amazing . 4 What or where do your inspirations come from? I am a very competitive person and very passionate about motorcycles . I have been inspired by the love of ridding and i always wanted to top myself by building amazing looking bikes that you could also enjoy ridding. Always wanted to do something completely different that will stand out anywhere. 5 What is the bike scene like in New York and how does it differ from California? Judging from television, NYC is portrayed as a street fighter type and not too much custom big tire bikes. In my opinion after visiting California and thinking of opening a shop out there, in New York there are definitely much more beautiful bikes, custom work not just for the looks. A lot of street fighters as well , as we know a different culture. I wasn’t drawn to California and building there, we are a very well known shop here in N.Y and definitely more inspiration comes from here. 6 What is the most expensive bike you have ever built? Most expensive bike ever built by me was 100.000 dollars. 7 In the auto world, there is a two million dollar custom car, would you ever think of building of bike of this caliber for the motorcycle industry? Diamond Bike. A million dollar bike. That was my idea as far as a most expensive custom bike ever built . 150.000 hand set stones . Being in the jewelery industry in the past and very good with my hands as a skill that was and still is something that i would like to do. Unfortunately not enough sponsors yet. 8 What is the fastest bike you built and how fast was it? Upgrades were done on the bikes i have built but our thing is building the nicest sexiest bikes out there. 9 Have you done any work for celebrities? We have built a bike for the president of A Life Company here in New York. 10 Favorite built and why? We take pride in building these bikes and everyday we enjoy doing it. 11 What do you see in the future of bike building to take it to the next level? to expand and keep doing quality work , work that speaks volumes , work that very few have seen and that stands out in the crowd.

Glamis
The Big Kid Sandbox

Survival

Survivals guide to the big kids sand box. Glamis California is famous to all off-road enthusiasts for it’s vast amount of sand dunes and riding space. It’s a great place to ride your motorcycle and offroad toys. For family and friends the dunes are a fun weekend escape from the stresses of life. For a family, the safer spots to camp at would be the washes. But if you are looking to camp closer to the big sand dune gecko road is the spot is that campsite for you. But what does it take to spend a weekend at Glamis? Well for starters you need a four-wheel drive vehicle to drive through the sand because without four-wheel drive you are most likely to get stuck. Next you’ll need a place to sleep so you can choose from camping in a tent or a trailer. Third on your list would be supplies such as food, drinks, and clothing for as long as your trip will last. Be sure to pack cloths to how the weather will be so before going check the weather forecast. Also you will need to pack tools, and fluids for your vehicles. You will also need firewood to keep warm at night a BBQ to grill up some food, a generator for power and depending on the way you ride

large amount of gasoline. Also don’t worry if you don’t pack everything on your trip because there is a store with almost everything you would need including showers for the people who pitch a tent. The stores called the beach store and it one of the only buildings around for miles. But if the beach store doesn’t have what you need there is always vender’s row witch it section of booths and food stands for campers. And the last thing on you list and most important item is your motorcycle and sand toys don’t forget them n also don’t forget to get your baby set of paddle tires to ride through the sand. The riding season in Glamis opens in the fall when the heat dies down. The holidays are great to spend in the dunes those weekend are busy but the real feeling of Glamis is alive in those busy days. When you go on those weekends don’t be afraid to follow the crowds to oldsmobile hill and the sand drags to see everyone ride. But really any weekend in the dunes is a great one as long as your bike your bike. And that’s your Survival guide.
