California Bike Week is for every motorcycle enthusiast, whether you ride, race or just like to watch whether youre into Harleys, Hondas, dirt bikes, sport bikes or cruisers says John Buck, California Bike Weeks new Executive Director. Everyones welcome, and theres so much for everyone to see and do with all the racing, demo riding, exhibits and shopping that it will be clear that California Bike Week is an enthusiast experience not to be missed.

Says Love Ride founder and owner of Glendale Harley-Davidson/Buell Oliver Shokouh, Were happy to be part of this inaugural event and move the Love Ride to the Fairplex. He adds, We certainly owe much of the success of the Love Ride to Castaic Lake and the wonderful residents there, but because of that very reason the event outgrew the facility and had to look at options. California Bike Week and the Fairplex offered the room we needed, and the bigger the party, the more money we can raise for charity and thats really what the Love Ride is all about.
