Halloween has become one of the coolest days of the year across the world. Pumpkins are commonly carved into decorative lanterns called jack-o’-lanterns for the Halloween season. The carved pumpkin was first associated with the harvest season in general, long before it became an emblem of Halloween.
Burning Man is a week-long annual event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada, in the United States. The event starts on the Monday before the American Labor Day holiday, and ends on the holiday itself. It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy on Saturday evening.

American Heat – 2010 Palm Springs – Bikes
‘American Heat Palm Springs Motorcycle Weekend is an event so hot it sizzles. You’ll find stunt shows, kickin’ live entertainment and retail vendors galore. Palm Springs is a great place to play. It’s bounded by lush mountain ranges for the perfect ride and tours of the desert cities. Live music rocks throughout the weekend along with plenty of activities. Open to all motorcycles.’ – This is how they sell this event at the American Heat
Ever since Discovery Channel started airing the American Chopper series I’ve had a fascination for bikes, their builds, designs and art work. With the new Sons of Anarchy FX series, that fascination has only grown. So last year I took myself out to Palm Springs for it’s annual “American Heat Palm Springs Motorcycle Weekend”. This year, in case you want to go, the American Heat returns to Palm Springs next weekend – Oct 14 -16, 2011. If you can make it, I can strongly recommend the experience. The bikes will blow your mind. [50 pictures]
