A normal start to the opening of this letter this month should be “Spring has Sprung,” but I believe it arrived sometime this past February. And, as many of us joked around, winter snapped back for a few days in March! I am not sure what Mother Nature is trying to tell us, but I will say, she’s a independent woman with a mind of her own… You cannot argue that!
Now that Spring is here, you can see how our kulture has been waiting with anticipation. There are tons of new events popping up all over, and many with a lot of great potential. Of course, there are our long-time favorites, including Atlanta’s Motorama at the Atlanta Motor Speedway and Angel City Motorcycle Rally in Unadilla, Georgia. You can see our schedule is packed full of some awesome upcoming events. Check it out at: http://www.garage71.net/events/
While talking on the subject of events, we are extremely excited to be hitting the road several times this year to some of our favorite locations, like New Mexico. We have been asked to set up in Sturgis this year, at the Full Throttle Saloon, as guests of Jackyl. The Rowdy Gents and Garage71 will be located at the infamous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally this summer. If you thought the road trip out west was amazing with some of the footage we shared, wait until you see what we share on this road trip. This is what it’s about. The destination is always a high point, but we have to take the time to enjoy the travel and journey as well. It’s the journey that creates the stories for years to come…
Our kulture has been evolving for generations. This year we celebrate many anniversaries within our own local community to international commemorations. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Chevy Camaro. We celebrate the 40th year of the SKODA. It is the 50th year for for the introduction of the Toyota Corolla, who still receives the best selling badge year after year. It’s the 75th year to celebrate the Jeep Wrangler. On the motorcycle side of our kulture, we celebrate 60 years of the Harley-Davidson Sportster 883. Come check out our display on Sunday, April 23rd, at the Summit Racing Equipment’s Atlanta Motorama at the Atlanta Motor Speedway for Vintage Day at the Bikefest portion of the show, where we will have a 1957 883 Sportster on display and the new 2017 Iron 883.
