Thanks to the hard work of promotion expert Carrie Repp, the Daytona Biker Fusion is still by far the best party during Bike Week. As usual, it is fun, it rocks and it is for a very good cause. It’s full of custom bikes and of celebs of the industry (can you recognize them all in this picture?) and this year there was a photography exhibit by Michael Lichter and Josh Kurplus, a display of 16 Fender guitars customized by some of the motorcycle industry most recognized talents. Bert Baker, Russell Mitchell and Billy Lane went on stage to auction some memorabilia to raise money for Soldiers’ Angels, a volunteer-based nonprofit organization supporting all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. Through special projects, dedicated teams and individuals, Soldiers’ Angels is supporting our troops and make a visible difference in the lives of our service members and their families. Although I can’t give you a number at this time, recession or not, the different auctions were successful, showing once again the legendary generosity of our industry. After that, why not having fun with a hot beauty contest where in my (shared) opinion…all girls were winners.
