Introduction

‘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]
