Last year was beyond our expectations with more than 200 bikes in the show and about 1000 people visiting. It's going to be even better this year so join us for Cafe Desmo 2010, our annual Italian motorcycle bike show, which will be held this August 20-22 with a weekend full of very cool events. We're hoping you, and the rest of the SoCal sport bike community come out. Check it out at our Cafe Desmo page. So...
Register your special bike for the Sunday morning show. Who knows . . . you may win one of the very special trophies (and lots of press and envy). While you needn't pre-register, we find it helpful to organize the show. There's a category for everyone. Any Cafe Desmo posters we have will go first to the participants in the show. If you're not showing, come anyway to see all the cool bikes and make some new friends. Oh, by the way, it's free!
Join us Friday night (7PM) at Pro Italia for a cocktail and book release party. We're feeling we need more women who ride (or want to ride) at Pro Italia, so join the East Side Moto Babes as they welcome author Christina Shook to Pro Italia for a book release party for "Chicks on Bikes". Yup, this too is free!
Meet us on Saturday night (8PM) at Labries Lounge in Glendale to hear some terrific rock n' roll by The Lords of Altamont. $10 at the door. Here is a map.
Ride up to the Crest at 12:30PM on Sunday (pre-register for your special t-shirt, picnic and to join lots of other bikes for $40). But if you don't want to spend the $40, most of which will be contributed to help fix the Crest, come anyway. The concert is free and it's at Newcomb's Ranch at 2:30 and there'll be a big screen showing videos before. There you'll hear an outdoor concert with "Shifty Uncle" featuring Brian Nutter from Keith Urban's band, Rikki Rockett from Poison, Robbie Crane from Ratt, and Snake from Skid Row will be joined by Erik Buell from the Thunderbolts and Mike Stone from Speed X and Queensryche. Other guest musicians are expected as well.
While you are thinking, "Man! This is gonna be cool!" Nab a form. Fill out your details - for either showing your bike or the ride/concert (or both) - and then fax it to (818) 484-2150. You may also bring in your completed form to our shop. It's going to be a whole year to the next Cafe Desmo so don't miss this one.
