Livingston Street in Orlando, Florida. Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer has confirmed his appearance and will officially welcome the famous Ace Cafe brand to the USA with a ‘Gentleman Start Your Engines’ decree. He will make a proclamation in regard to the fact that Ace Cafe Orlando is restoring three historic 100 year-old buildings on the site. Orlando marks the first Ace Cafe in North America. The audience will be invited to join members of the media, Orlando City Commissioners and VIPs, special guests, and local car & motorcycle enthusiasts who will bring their vehicles to be lined up in front of the under-construction Ace for a photographic backdrop.

Made In America. What Does It Mean? A bill to amend the California law governing “Made in U.S.A.” labeling was approved by an assembly committee and is now on the floor of the assembly for a vote by all members. Under current law, the standard in California for designating products as “Made in U.S.A.” is different and more onerous than the standard established by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The FTC allows manufacturers to display the “Made in U.S.A.” designation on products that are “all or virtually all” made in the United States. California has put in place a different standard requiring the product and all its subcomponents to be entirely or substantially produced in the U.S. in order to be labeled as “Made in U.S.A.” This bill would resolve this discrepancy.

Daredevil’s Son Robbie Knievel Charged Again With DUI After Montana Crash. Robbie Knievel,52, son of Evel Knievel, was arrested in Butte, Montana, and charged with felony DUI and criminal endangerment after a crash Tuesday evening.Reportedly, he allegedly ran a red light at high speed with his 2005 GMC Yukon, rear-ended a Honda Accord, setting off a chain reaction that involved two other vehicle. No one was injured in the wreck but the police report mentions that Knievel fled the scene and was located about a block away from the accident with a bloody lip and smelling alcohol. He refused a breathalyzer test and blood was taken from him at a close by hospital. He was arraigned on Wednesday afternoon. Knievel has three prior drunken driving convictions, one in Sturgis during the 2013 rally. At that time he was unapologetic making the following statement “I ride motorcycles, and I drink. I’m a frickin drinkin, drivin daredevil. I jump motorcycles, I ride motorcycles and I frickin drink and ride. That’s my deal.”

Wisconsin Assembly Passes Bill Legalizing Colored Motorcycle Lights. Current Wisconsin law (and in most US States) prohibits operating a motor vehicle with lights other than white or amber in front and red in the rear. Colored lights on motorcycles would be legal under a bill the state Assembly has passed. The bill’s Assembly sponsor, Republican John Jagler of Watertown, says colored LED lights are becoming more popular on motorcycles. Under the bill, people could equip their motorcycles with any color lights aside blue as long as they don’t flash or rotate. The Bill goes next to the Wisconsin Senate.

    I thought Ace Orlando was suppose to be open last year? Are they in financial trouble or something? Just wondering!

    Last year they announce their building plans, not the opening. They restore 3 downtown buildings. More time consuming than building from scratch? Possible.
