J&P Cycles Announces Open House Rally Saturday Concert Line Up

J&P Cycles is going to take the Open House Rally to the next level on Saturday night, June 27, with a free concert at the Jones County Fairgrounds, in Monticello, Iowa, featuring Cinderella’s Tom Keifer, The Voice of Ratt Stephen Pearcy, and former Warrant guitarist Billy Morris playing tribute to Jani Lane. Don Jamieson, co-host of VH1’s Classic “That Metal Show,” will serve as emcee. The free Sunday afternoon concert, as previously announced, will feature Great White.
       Cinderella frontman, Tom Keifer, released his debut solo album, “The Way Life Goes,” in 2013. Featuring 14 songs that are eclectic in nature and as a 2014 article in Rolling Stones Country suggests, “blues howlers, Stones-y rock, and big ballads, the album calls to mind Cinderella, but with an even more rootsy undercurrent.” Leading Cinderella, top songs include: “Nobody’s Fool,” “Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone)” and “Somebody Save Me.” Tom and his band will play 65 percent of Cinderella’s hits in addition to solo songs and a couple of covers.

Lehman Trike Plant Will Close Soon

Lehman Trikes of Spearfish, maker of three-wheeled motorcycles, is rolling out of town and will close its local operation and take a dozen jobs with it, the company's CEO said.
       Expansion into Asian markets and logistics associated with that move has prompted Champion Trikes to close its Lehman Trikes location in Spearfish, the company’s CEO said.
      Craig L. Arrojo, of Champion Investments Inc. and Champion Trikes, said his company would transition out of the Spearfish location in the next couple months and relocate operations to its 43,000-square-foot facility in Garden Grove, Calif.
       Because the Spearfish operation is landlocked in the middle of the country, it made it difficult to service overseas markets, Arrojo said. 
       “We had to make some changes because of economics and logistics,” Arrojo said. “We’re sad that we couldn’t get the motorcycle side to work.”

LowDown Solos For FL Touring Bikes Launched

Press Release: The secret is out! No need to keep it on the down-low any longer — announcing Mustang’s newest Solo seat for touring bikes. The LowDown Solo was specifically engineered for 2009-2015 Harley-Davidson FL Touring models to give riders a lower seat height without compromising on comfort.
       “Touring riders asked, Mustang listened,” says Mustang's Director of Business Development, Marilyn Simmons. “Now riders can be lower on their FLs without compromising long-distance comfort.” The Solo's 13" wide bucket is shaped and angled for optimal touring posture on the go, according to Simmons. “But the real bonus is the fact that the LowDown really does drop the rider down closer to the ground. The Solo seat is also cut narrow at the front so you can plant your feet firmly on the ground at a stop.”

Burly MX Style Foot Pegs

We’ve always felt that billet aluminum was nice for big airplanes and your dad's bagger, but steel is the real deal and the newest Mini MX style pegs from Burly are just that. They took their existing bear trap and narrowed it up a bit for a nice balanced feel. Also makes an excellent passenger peg if you’re already running the full size stuff up front. Our favorite part? The integrated bottle opener. Nice touch Burly.
