One thing I really hate is, accessories that can't hold up to the everyday vibrations of normal riding. You know after that spill I had at the carelessness of a young girl in a big expensive car. I need products that are gonna hold up and not make me freak the hell out when this happens. I need to be confident in my bike. At least when its not up to par, and its USA made. There is a confidence level that you get that you can at least call the guy who sold it to you and give him a piece of your damn mind. Then ship it back and get a new replacement. Who the hell do I call for this one? EBAY? "sorry dear friend for your problem light....." BUY AMERICAN!!!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Laura Conrad – Kahn Media 818/881-5246 Laura@KahnMedia.com CUSTOM BIKE BUILDER ARLEN NESS BIRTHDAY BASH AND SUMMER EXHIBITION AT THE PETERSEN AUTOMOTIVE MUSEUM Los Angeles, Calif. (May, 2013) – Few, if any, have had a more prolific and respected career in custom motorcycle building than Arlen Ness, and the Petersen Automotive Museum is thrilled to honor the man himself and his creations with a Birthday Bash on July 12, followed by a motorcycle cruise-in on July 13 and a special summer-long exhibit titled Arlen Ness: Art on Two Wheels. The Arlen Ness Birthday Bash on July 12 at 6p.m. will include cocktails and dinner in celebration of Ness. Friends of Arlen Ness will speak to honor the legend, who will also answer questions from the audience. Tickets are $95 and can be purchased at www.Petersen.org. The exhibit will open on Saturday, July 13, marked with a V-Twin Cruise-In from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Anyone who rides a motorcycle to the museum will receive free parking and two-for-one admission to the museum. Arlen Ness will be signing autographs at 11:00 am. Arlen Ness: Art on Two Wheels, which runs through Sept. 8, 2013, will feature motorcycle masterpieces built by Arlen Ness that together embody a style and spirit that blends sculpture and the thrill of motoring on two wheels. Alongside Arlen’s bikes will be others built by his son Cory and grandson Zach. Three generations of the Ness family have crafted some of the most stunning and trend setting custom motorcycles to ever grace the highway; and many serve as inspiration for a new generation of enthusiasts. Ness began his career in the 1960s with the customization of a 1947 Harley Knucklehead. After entering the bike in local shows, he was noticed by future customers and started a business custom painting bikes. As his popularity grew and demand increased, Ness began selling custom parts and custom motorcycles with a stretched and lowered style which became the hallmark of his designs. After more than four decades, Ness has a large product line specializing in Victory and Harley-Davidson accessories and has received a variety of awards including Builder of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Awards and induction to the Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
