New opportunities for growing the community of Lebanese bikers
Lebanon is to become the major hub for Harley-Davidson in the Levant with the opening of its showroom in Beirut Q4 of this year. Inspired by the passion of 800 bikers across the country, Harley-Davidson Worldwide has chosen the city to cater for the needs of a growing community of enthusiasts in Levant and the Gulf region.
Harley fans in Lebanon will now have easy access to parts, bikes and accessories. They will also be able to participate in activities, tours and events, through which they can share their passion with other like-minded bikers.
Interest in Harley-Davidson has long thrived in the Levant. The company first opened a showroom in Lebanon more than 70 years ago to support the growing number of riders there. However, for a number of reasons, the country lost its dealership 10 years ago and bikers scattered and were forced to order parts and equipment from overseas.
With an investment of $2.5m for the new outlet the place will be offering the latest Harley-Davidson equipment, bikers will have a revived opportunity to engage with the sport and fellow riders.

Monday January 21, 11:30 am ET
Authentic Custom Bobber Fuses Stunning Style and Distinctive Design
MILWAUKEE, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The new Harley-Davidson FLSTSB Softail Cross Bones cuts the aggressive profile of an authentic custom bobber, but with some dark twists that deliver a wickedly fun and emotional riding experience.
The new Softail model was announced today at the Harley-Davidson Winter Dealer Meeting in San Antonio. With the retro look of a Springer front end and other post-war era bobber styling cues like a sprung solo seat, half-round rider footboards, Gloss Black round air cleaner cover and chopped front fender, the Softail Cross Bones rides with a Black and Polished Twin Cam 96B powertrain, 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission and truly unique Softail suspension.
From a press release issued by the California Environmental Protection Agency Air Resources Board (CARB):
DYNOJET RESEARCH, INC. CASE SETTLES FOR $1,000,000
The Mobile Source Enforcement Section along with the Office of Legal Affairs has completed its investigation against Dynojet Research, Inc. located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dynojet was manufacturing an after market part called the "Power Commander" that would alter the air-fuel mixture and the timing on off and on road motor vehicles. By installing the Power Commander this would alter or modify the original design of the motor vehicle and would affect the emission control systems that were certified by the manufacture through ARB. As part of the settlement it was agreed between both parties that Dynojet would not violate the Health and Safety Code with respect to the installation, sale, offer for sale or advertising of any device in California intended for use with, or as part of, any required motor vehicle pollution control device or system which alters or modifies the original design or performance of any such motor vehicle pollution control device or system. Dynojet has now certified a California version of the Power Commander that is legal for sale and use on California motor vehicles. Dynojet also paid penalties in the amount of $1,000,000 to the California Air Pollution Control Fund as part of the settlement.
So Vinny leaves OCC in a bit a of a huff, its all good though.
And now Vinnie Dimartino and Cody Connelly have started Vforce Customs.
From the look of it they are going to be a custom motorcycle shop.
Right on! Wanna bet that they have a reality TV show in the works?
I wonder what will become of OCC and the Tuttle family now that they have they biggest shop in the northeast for building bikes?
Time will tell, but VForce Customs looks like they just may give the Tuttles a ride for their money.
