In 2010 the Love Ride is back with a “Retro” nostalgic ride on November 7, 2010. It is one of the most successful charity events but after last year’s cancellation due to the bad economy, the formula has changed. Oliver Shokouh, and Grand Marshal Jay Leno, will lead riders from Glendale Harley-Davidson back to the same venue where the Love Ride began 26 years ago back in 1984: to the Calamigos Ranch in the Malibu hills. To capture the feeling of the first Love Ride, attendance is limited to only 1,000 riders. Tickets are $100 per person and the event is expected to sell out very fast, reason why I announce it so much in advance.
One-of-a-kind prizes, including Bruce Springsteen’s autographed guitar from his performance at Love Ride 1996, are up for grabs to everyone who registers or becomes a Top Fundraiser. One of the Love Ride’s original performers, Robby Krieger of The Doors is scheduled to play a retro set of music with his son, Waylon Krieger performing as the opening act. Riders of all motorcycle makes are encouraged to sign up quickly. Information and registration forms are available online at Love Ride , in person at Glendale Harley Davidson, 3717 San Fernando Road, Glendale, Calif. Forms can also be obtained by calling the dealership at (818) 246-5618.
