And that's it, as far as I can ascertain from the certification sheets. There's no new Night Train based on the Rocker platform, no 103-inch Dynas and nothing massively adventurous, just an evolution of the 2010 range.
Hey look at this: it's only taken six years, and they'll be followed by patches in a few weeks.

Resplendent in red white and blue, we're really pleased how well they've come out, and their top-hat fixings look like they'll keep them secure. And we're going to have to re-order soon, the rate at which they're going - and that's before we've put them in the mag!

Only £3.50 each including P&P: see www.american-v.co.uk and follow links to e-shop for more details.
Organisers of this year's Bulldog Bash bike and music show - which takes place at Shakespeare County Raceway, near Stratford-upon-Avon, 12th to 15th of August - have welcomed moves to end the massive stop and search operation and reduction of the police presence at the event.

The assistant chief constable of Warwickshire, Bill Holland has told local people that there will be no road closures or road blocks this year after huge operations caused chaos for villagers and showgoers at the past two events. Mr Holland said this year's operation would be "intelligence-led" but people going to the show would no longer be funnelled into a lay-by near the site to be searched.

A spokesman for the bash said:" We welcome a return to sensible policing. The huge operations over the last two years have cost Warwickshire taxpayers a million pounds, resulted in just a handful of arrests and have caused chaos for showgoers and villagers. They also discouraged bash visitors from going out into the local area and boosting the economy. "Local people considered - and we agreed - that these operations were unnecessary. We welcome a return to the type of policing that worked well for the first twenty years of the show. We look forward to working closely with the local police as we have done every year to ensure another safe and successful bash."

The organisers are pleased to announce a fantastic new format for the 24th annual Bulldog Bash, following a multi-million pound investment in on-site infrastructure. The owners of the Bulldog's Long Marston site have been busy all winter implementing new roads and upgrading the site drainage to ensure that the event is ready for the next decade of party goers. Key attractions such as the monster funfair will be relocated in light of the improvements to hard-standing and the trader's retail village is to be improved. Visitors can expect a few welcome surprises as Bulldog 24 features a huge, brand new, outdoor sound stage, along side an all new, non stop, entertainment format in the massive main stage marquee to keep hardy visitors up until dawn - Entertainment on the main stage kicks off on Thursday evening at 6pm (See www.bulldogbash.eu  for full music listings).

Custom show applications are coming in thick and fast, and spaces are limited - organisers require a full spec sheet, a short covering letter detailing why the bike should be considered and a couple of good photos - upload your bike via the Bulldog website or post applications to Custom Show, HAMC London, 3-5 Dawson St, Hackney, London E2 8JU - a full list of classes can be seen on-line.

RWYB (Run Wot You Brung) Drag racing will be the main attraction for speed freaks, thanks to Shakespeare County Raceway's superb facilities and drag strip surface that is second to none in Europe. Track times are between 9:30 am to 5:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, 9.30 to 1.00pm on Sunday. All bikes must pass scrutineering; which begins at 8:30am Friday and continues throughout the RWYB sessions. The costs for RWYB are just £10 per day Friday, Saturday and Sunday; giving unlimited runs within the days sessions.

After each timed run, riders are presented witha 'Certificate of Speed' giving important information, like reaction times to the green light, timing data from start to finish, alongside opponents times and speeds. And if that's not enough there are some fantastic trophies and prize money for the fastest runs in each of the following classes - American, British, European, Buell, Jap 500cc, Jap 1000cc, Jap Unlimited, Trike, Classic, Ladies and Non Road Legal - which will be presented on Saturday evening on the Main Stage.

For those less inclined to participate in the RWYB, top stunt professionals will be performing exhibition displays all weekend, from formation wheelies and doughnuts, to top fuel dragsters screaming down the strip, funny cars, Nitrous Harleys, Eric Teboul's hydrogen peroxide-fuelled rocket bike and Sikorsky powered Fireforce Jet Cars, all ensure a non stop weekend of top class drag strip action.

Ticket are only £50 per person until June 30th 2010, after which the gate price of £55 applies - book on-line via the website or send a cheque or postal order for £50 per person, plus a first class postage paid SEA, to: The Bulldog Bash 2010, Ticket office, PO Box 5026, East Reading, RG6 1QZ

Just days after announcing Ozzy Osbourne, the Buffalo Chip has outdone themselves with Bob Dylan. Nothing much more to say, except Bob Dylan! How much bigger can you get?

Wonder if Elton John was busy ...
... and that's a hell of a line-up to top, as it already includes ZZ Top, Kid Rock, Motley Crue, The Doobie Brothers and The Scorpions.

"In addition to being the largest music festival of its kind, this year's Buffalo Chip lineup during Sturgis Rally Week 2010 not only achieves raucous proportions but offers visitors a high-octane and complete biker experience. With Rally Week celebrating its 70th Anniversary, the Chip has kicked into high gear and is ready to knock the chaps off of the tens of thousands of bikers that will be making their yearly pilgrimage to Sturgis' premier entertainment venue and motorcycle travel destination.
Poised and ready to offer their visitors the complete biker experience, the Legendary Buffalo Chip has rounded up an enormous selection of biker-centric fun and festivities in addition to their unrivaled music lineup.
Providing visitors a barrage of world-class entertainment, art, vendors, food, amenities, charitable efforts and countless memories, the Legendary Buffalo Chip offers its guests the undisputed ultimate Sturgis experience. From the Guns of Freedom which offers guests the opportunity to fire over 65 models of machine guns to the Legendary Buffalo Chip's Freedom Celebration including The American Pride Ride and a special tribute to our American Veterans and Active Duty Military; the Legendary Buffalo Chip offers the complete package.
This year's Legendary Buffalo Chip Sturgis experience also includes Michael Lichter's 10th Annual Motorcycles as Art exhibit. Entitled "Eternal Combustion-30 in the Wind", this year's exhibit will focus on the explosion of interest and passion for custom motorcycles and will feature the works of 15 pairs of custom builders.
Celebrities, the nation's top bike builders and riders looking to ride for charity are also encouraged to take part in the 3rd annual Legends Ride ®. This historic and beautiful ride takes riders from Deadwood to the Legendary Buffalo Chip through the Black Hills of South Dakota and benefits the Children's Home of the Black Hills as well as the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame.
"For Sturgis' 70th Anniversary we really wanted to out-do ourselves this year," explains Buffalo Chip owner, Rod Woodruff. "We wanted to not only provide visitors with a large and varied selection of cool things to do, but also provide them with the nation's foremost biker music festival - with this line-up I think we've officially accomplished that."
