Over 5,000 gearheads and fans converged on the Harley-Davidson Museum® Custom Bike Pro-Show on Thursday evening for Bike Night and to kick off a weekend full of custom culture. Thousands of bikes line up in long rows of choppers, trikes and cruisers. Bike enthusiasts come from all over the country to see world-class designs and celebrate Harley culture.
5-Ball Racing Leathers’ (12 Pocket) Special Ops Club Jacket is designed for the biker on the go, with room for wallet, keys, smart phone, garage door opener and everything else a busy, modern American biker carries nowadays.

And the Story behind the Brand

The 5-Ball Racing team has always been a team effort. We set a few World Land Speed Records, and we’re going after more. The team portion of the equation remains intact with the apparel line. Teams are tough. Humans have a tough time dealing with egos, success, money, you name it. In many respects the Dharma rule of any team is to avoid all those issues at all costs. I’ll attempt to explain.
Note: Bikernet.com asked for a piece on what I do during a typical custom bike show weekend. Here is an overview of the Long Beach. By Jeffrey Najar
My job is promoting companies in the Powersports Industry through promotions and publicity, as well as by producing custom bike shows.
In late 2014 I flew into LAX to produce the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show, which was installed down the center isle and on the red carpet of the Progressive International Motorcycle Show. This was the 4th show in the 1tth show series.
I always look forward to coming out to the City of Angles because I stay at the Bikernet.com HQ in Wilmington, CA. I bring a bottle of single barrel Jack Daniels and sit down with Bandit and whoever-is-around at the end of the day to have a couple of shots, recap the day and fix the world’s problems.
The Smoke Out rally announced today that Hammer Performance, purveyor of performance headwork and go-fast parts for Harley-Davidson and Buell, is the newest Smoke Out sponsor. Hammer Performance joins Biker’s Choice and Spectro Oils in their support of the owner / builder culture.
Dan Norlin and Aaron Wilson are partners in the Hammer Performance endeavor. Norlin won the AHDRA National Championship in September, and Wilson’s prepped bikes currently hold a total of 16 records at the flats, at speeds up to 213 miles per hour. These guys know how to make bikes go fast, and they have transferred that knowledge to street bikes in a very usable way.
I flew into LAX late Thursday night and was picked up by my partner Bob Kay.

I ducked my head to see who was in the car and found Bandit of Bikernet behind the wheel grinning ear to ear. Kay was riding shotgun and Ray Wheeler was taking up residence in the back. Once we all got loaded, we had 850+ lbs of beef and 300 lbs of luggage dragging the springs of the black Ford rental.
The boys waited on me for dinner so after I got in, Bandit slammed the accelerator and we shot off into the night looking for a late night dinner. We zipped down the mean streets of Los Angeles on the hunt… blasting down the streets, popping over curbs and blowing through lights.
