Samson Pipes' Gift Certificate - Samson Pipes - Readers Showcase

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.

Hot Bags
If you're going to ride somewhere, you may as well look good doing it. Martin's '00 Heritage Springer may very well be a dual-personality bike. With some old-school flames on the front and meticulously detailed bags on the back, it serves both style and function for short trips around town and the longer roads in life.

Snakes On A Bike
This Fat Boy takes after its pipes. It better resembles a long, mean-looking python than your average highway cruiser. Striking purple paint and a lot of eye-catching chrome add further detail to this scene-stealer of a bike.
