HOWDY BROTHERS AND SISTERS!
Born To Ride burned rubber over to Daytona Bike Week this year and the proof is in this kickass issue! March 5th through the 14th was the ultimate Run to the Sun for the 80th Annual Daytona Bike Week. Your brothers and sisters from Born To Ride held court out at the Rat’s Hole Bike Show where we proudly picked the Editor’s Choice Award. We kicked off riding season as only Born To Ride can, partyin’ with the best and messin’ with the rest. Take a look inside this awesome April issue for killer coverage of this year’s mega motorized madness. If you were there, you might just be in here!
This issue we’re still mopping up after the amazing Thunder by the Bay Choppertown Live custom bike show down in Sarasota, Florida. What an awesome event. Over 50 custom bike builders showing their latest wild rides. We’ve got another Born To Ride motorcycle event brewing that we’ll tell you about next month. It will absolutely knock your engineer boots off!
Our awesome April issue of the world’s best biker rag explodes with all the fury of a forgotten Easter egg! Check out a mouth-waterin’ reader’s ride by wrenchin’ rider Kalie Maden. Her sweet Sporty chop job will make you want to start up your scoot and ride! Meet seven-year-old motocross racer Knox Murray and help make his motorized dream come true because this young man was born to race!
Check out one of our new sponsors, the fine folks from Seattle Engraving Center in Brandon, Florida. They make beautiful artwork out of deadly weapons. We’re talkin’ about 24-karat gold-plated guns that are lethal jewelry. Plus, our tech tip this month involves another great sponsor, Metalsport Wheels!
But wait, there’s more! Nefarious James offers up some truly touching words about the biker lifestyle we love that’ll get ya moving, and Spyke & Mike get ready for Spring in a most egg-cellent way.
