Southern California has the largest concentration of Sportbike Riders in the country. On most nights of the week, thousands of bikers converge on various hot spots through out the local area to meet with friends, lie about track times, compare crash scars and laugh at each other's chicken stripes. The brain child of John Zamora, a.k.a. SoCalRPM, the Bike Night Out series adds something more, including fashion shows, raffles, model searches and a chance to get off the bike for a night of fun.
Bike Night Out I was held at Camacho's Cantina and Grill in the City of Industry. The first event was a huge success with over 600 riders. Attending were the majority of the area's local clubs and stunters, including Jason Britton, Darius Khashabi, Brian Steeves, Racing 905 and more.
Shortly after Bike Night Out, model search winner Kendra Wilkinson became a resident of the happiest place on earth, and we don't mean Disneyland. Kendra moved into the Playboy Mansion and has appeared in the magazine several times after appearing on the cover of Super Streetbike Magazine.
The second Bike Night Out was an even bigger success with a capacity crowd trying to get in. Bike Night Out II was co-hosted by the internet's largest motorcycle site, Motorcycle-USA.com, as part of their Blue Fin Superbike Party. Celebrity guests included Michael Jordan's race team, "Mr. Daytona" Scott Russell and others helped make a night to remember as SoCal invaded NorCal. Bike Night Out II's model search winner Nicole Wagner was later hired as Noriyuka Haga's umbrella girl during the World Super Bike races.
Winding up the riding year, Bike Night Out III featured the world premiere of Burn On the West Coast 2 produced by Burn Films. The event also featured a showing of the most anticipated video of 2005, Servin' It Up 3 by Darius Khashabi. Raffles included a 2005 CRF50 customized by the world famous SiK50's with all proceeds going to Toy Ride benefiting the Hollygrove Children and Family Services and making one bike winner Nick Bell a very happy 12 year old.
Bike Night Out III's model search winner Candace Foote was immediately used in a full page ad by SoCalRPM and more plans are in store for this part-time Hooters girl, part-time student and full-time hottie.
Bike Night Out would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of a few individuals, specifically Teri Gorrell, Steve Long, Justin Shniderman, Ron Plumlee and of course Super Streetbike Magazine.
Events in 2005 are already being developed under the Bike Night Out name.
