Gift Certificate - Samson Pipes - Readers' Rides

Samson Exhaust

Attention, Hot Bike Readers!Samson Exhaust has big news for you. As the sponsor of this department, Samson will give you a $75 gift certificate toward a set of Samson pipes if we select your bike. That's right-get your bike published in full color in your favorite mag and receive bucks off your next set of Samson pipes! You can't lose.

All we ask is that you follow these simple guidelines: Take a shot of your bike from the left and right side with a clean background. Don't show us your cars, boats, neighbors, or bicycles in the photo, just your bike. Please send color prints, slides, or high-resolution images on CD. No digital prints from your computer, please. Remember, the better the picture looks, the more likely it is to be published. And now that you can get some new pipes cheap, there is even more reason to send sharp photos.

We want to see what you ride, from doctored stock to wild custom, so send those pics to: Hot Bike Readers' Showcase, 2570 E. Cerritos Ave., Anaheim, CA 92806.

Perfect TimingAnthony purchased his '07 Night Train on a frigid Illinois winter day in November 2006. He took it for a spin, brought it back, and completely tore it apart, only to rebuild his most prized possession. Since he finished building his project in March, he's spent more time "spring riding" rather than "spring cleaning."

Vacation TimeFrank says his bike "is like a vacation every time I ride it." He uses his dual-personality machine to putt along as a cruiser, or, when it gets a wild hair, a mean street machine.

Airbag Seat System?Does that mean you have an ejection seat mounted on your chop? Mark's "Black Diamond" is a ground-up custom that he recently finished building. The square-tube frame has been mounted and bent diagonally with a diamond-shaped Springer frontend below the bottom triple-tree.

First-TimerRandy's dream: for his bike to make it in the magazine. Well, here you go, Randy! Now, make sure to show all of your buddies when you get your copy. He bought his first bike, an '05 Super Glide, about three years ago. He's added plenty of goodies to his Dyna and doesn't plan to stop upgrading anytime soon.
