First Annual New Orleans Bike Week Is May 7th To 10th





Slowly, the good life is back in New Orleans. “The Big Easy” will have its 1st Bike Week from May 7th to 10th and the “center stage” will be the 26,000 square foot of the Broken Spoke Saloon with the French Quarter as playground and starting point for scenic riverfront and plantation rides. Broken Spoke Saloon Jay Allen with have some of his hottest barmaids from the Black Hills in Sturgis transported to the heart of the one and only New Orleans. And you know, like me, that no city throws a festival like the “Big Easy”. The all-inclusive event will feature a huge Easyriders Bike Show, motorcycle daredevil demonstrations, a Budweiser burn out, bike build-offs, live headliner music and much more. All events will appen or start from theNew Orleans Convention Center, Sugar Mill & Heritage Park in the French Quarter’s Warehouse District. More details at Bike Week New Orleans.

    The deal of me showing up in New-Orleans is still in discussion with the organizer. I love the idea to be back in New-Orleans.

    BEWARE., New Orleans, post Katrina is known for locking up tourists for no reason to generate revenue. I have attended 3 Mardis Gras’, a Super Bowl and a NCAA National Championship game, all pre-Katrina and never saw an extrordinary number of arrests, I returned post Katrina on a randomn weekend and saw the cops locking people up left and right. It costs at least $750.00 for an attorney to either get the charges dismissed or to have them represent you to pay an inflated fine.

    It ain’t ANNUAL, it’s IGNAUGURAL and if it makes it to next year then it can be called annual.

    I am proud to say that is the originator of Bike Week New Orleans at the Broken Spoke, May 6 to 10 – presented by, the Broken Spoke & Easyriders Events. We are really excited about this big event that will be the new cap-off of the Easyriders V-Twin Tour every year, filling the 160,000 sq.ft. New Orleans Morial Convention Center with bikes and a very unique “Chrome Kitchen” entertainment area where famous chefs will be mixing it up with famous bike builders and dishing out some local favorite cuisine. Do you cook, Cyril?

    This event is backed by the City of New Orleans and State of Louisianna, plus home companies like Southern Comfort, and regional distributors of Coke and Bud. Of course, we have also handled the security issue with New Orleans… So please help us make this a great launch party!

    Michael Lichter will be there to document the inaugural event… along with most of the major bike magazines… more added to the media list every day.

    I live here and it is good to maybe have something cool come our way again.But do be ware we have alot of scuffs in N.O. and stealing bikes is a hot item.The last rally we had several years ago had over 50 bikes ripped,mostly rice rockets.Other than that N.O. is way cool and bars do not close in the Quarter.Cops will tolerate so much then they will bust your ass.But think of the retards they deal with on a daily basis.I don’t like cops but N.O. cops are pretty cool for cops,but they are cops.The weather should be sweet it is in the 80 degrees today.Be prepared for rough roads in the Quarter.Our roads suck.There really is no place that is quite like N.O. it is the place you can do just about anything.And the food kicks ass,major ass.
