tbarlogo     Billed as the "hottest" ride of Arizona Bike Week and helping "Save Boobs One Bar at a Time!", this ride drew plenty of participants.  Registration started at WestWorld at 9am with a hearty breakfast.  Participants then saddled up and headed to see some real Arizona scenery starting with the smokin' hot ladies of Cheetah's Cabaret-Phoenix, Christie's Cabaret-Tempe and Christie's Cabaret-Phoenix. After everyone was all good and heated up, they  headed back to Cyclefest at WestWorld for some cold drinks, awesome vendors, non-stop activities and the Puddle of Mudd concert in the Handlebar Saloon. All of this while joining in the fight against breast cancer.  Roving reporter Bart Mitchell was part of the ride and got some great photos of all the fun.

hamusa     The next day, Bart hit the road again, this time participating in the Hamsters Charity "Dry Heat" Run.  The Hamster Custom Motorcycle Group, whose members include some very famous names in the industry such as Arlen Ness, Dave Perewitz, Paul Yaffe, Donny Smith, Myron Larrabee, hold this ride every year and  invade the valley for Arizona Bike Week to enjoy the great weather, riding and the entertainment that goes with it.

     This year's second annual Hamster Dry Heat Run's proceeds benefited The Children's Care Hospital and School of South Dakota.  This was a great opportunity to support the kids and say thank you for providing Bike Week celebrants a place to enjoy our lifestyle year after year.

     The ride started at Paul Yaffe Originals at 11:00am. Lunch was served at Greasewood Flat in beautiful North Scottsdale that afternoon with awesome prize giveaways, a 50/50 drawing, live music by Cell Phone Cowboys and an opportunity to spend the afternoon "Hamster style".

     The run wrapped up at Cyclefest in WestWorld in the Handlebar Saloon where REO SPEEDWAGON hit the stage and rounded off this awesome day.
