Daytona Beach Bike Week 2013 picture gallery!

Bike week 2013

Hi everyone! Yesterday I went to Bike Week 2013 in Daytona Beach. It was a bit windy and cold out, at least for here. So there was not as many biker chicks out in bikini’s and shorts. 🙁

But there was plenty of bikes, and very cool ones at that. I took videos which I will make into a Youtube video of bike week 2013 soon. I also took a lot of pictures and made them into a gallery you can see below.

There is a mix of pictures, from the beach to art to bikes. I did go down to the beach, then over to main street to check out everything there. After that I went over to the field in front of the Daytona 500 racetrack.

They always have lots of stuff for sale there plus some of the best custom bikes you will ever see. So I had a good time there before I finally went home. I estimate I walked a good 8 miles.

So check out the pictures below, I’m sure you’ll enjoy them. I will have a video with lots more in that in a week hopefully. If you went to this years bike week 2013 leave a comment and let me know how you liked it! 🙂

What Are The Advantages of Wearing Leather?

Bikers are traditionally associated with wearing black leather jackets and sunglasses. Not only are they stylish and sleek but they actually act as a second skin, providing an extra layer of protection. Not all protective gear is as fashionable as this and as a fellow biker you are sure to own at least one leather jacket. But what other advantages are there to owning a leather jacket?

Leather jackets are easy to find

The great thing about leather jackets is that your size is not likely to vary from store to store, unlike other garments. This means that you don’t have to go to your local store and try on a jacket – you can simply order a jacket off a website like ours from the comfort of your own home. This means you don’t have to interrupt your game of FoxyBingo or waste gas driving to the store because you can be confident the jacket you’ve chosen is going to fit.

Updated my leather jacket sizes chart

leather jacket sizes chart

I enjoy selling my leather jackets and apparel. It’s nice to get an email from a customer telling me how much they like their new jacket. The one thing that frustrates both me and the customer is when they get the wrong size.

In almost every case it’s a size or two too small. I noticed that often that happens with leather jackets that come in letter sizes. I assume they just pick what letter size they normally wear with other types of jackets.

But because leather jackets are made smaller than normal they often get one too small. So I updated my leather jacket sizes chart so it’s a bit easier to understand with the letter sizes.

Tooled Leather

What is tooled leather? It’s actually very simple, it’s any piece of leather that has been worked on in any way to have a design, initials, pattern or other decorative look applied to it.

Leather embossing, how to make embossed leather

Leather embossing kits

One thing I don’t think I’ve ever discussed here is leather embossing, or what embossed leather is. So just what is leather embossing? What does embossed leather look like? How do you emboss leather and where can you get leather embossing kits?

Well first lets get it straight about just what is leather embossing, because it is often confused with leather tooling, or leather working. Simply put, leather embossing is the act of putting any type of design, mark or lettering in leather with a stamp, wheel or die tool.

Leather embossing is the act of stamping or pressing an object into the leather so that it leaves an impression. Embossed leather does NOT have any leather cut out, like in leather tooling.

suede leather cleaner, how to clean suede leather

Suede leather cleaner

Many people search online for suede leather cleaner, so it would seem like many people don’t know how to clean suede leather. Or they want to find a suede leather cleaner that will clean up their suede leather items.

How do you clean suede leather? Well first you need to understand that suede leather is the split part of leather hide that has not been sanded smooth. Because of this is it very soft with an almost fuzzy feel to it.

Unfortunate that fuzzy surface picks up dirt a lot better than a smooth one. Also the suede fibers can discolor easy from liquids, even plain water. So many people have suede leather apparel and items that need a suede leather cleaner.

Leather jacket thickness and toughness

Leather jacket thickness

I recently had an email from someone who wanted to know if a leather jacket I had was really tough, not a soft leather jacket. He seemed to indicate that if a leather jacket was soft to the touch it was not a tough leather jacket. So I thought I’d clear up that question in a post today.

How tough, or long lasting a leather jacket is depends on several things, but softness is not one of them. Leather that is soft and flexible to the touch has just been treated very well to get that way. The real test of how rugged a leather jacket is depends on the type of hide, the layer of the hide used and how thick the hide is.

A top grain leather is the layer of hide at the top, where the hair use to be. That layer is the strongest part of the hide. Leather hides are always split into several layers. The layers below the top grain is the split grain leather, which is a bit weaker than the top layer.

Spring cleaning your leather jacket and motorcycle leathers

Leather jacket spring cleaning

Down here in Florida biker weather is year round. But for much of the USA people put their leather motorcycle jackets, saddle bags and biker leather away for the winter. With spring coming up it’s a good time to get out that leather and get it ready.

It also cheers you up as you can think of riding again! If you’ve kept your leather jacket and leather items in a cool, aired out place and you cleaned it before putting it away chances are you don’t have to do a thing to it.

But,,,, if you threw it in a pile last fall, left it dirty thinking you’ll get around to cleaning it, or it’s been hanging over a heater, chances are you need to do a few things to it if you want it to last.

Bike week at Daytona Beach 2010!

bike week in Daytona Beach 2010

The Daytona Beach Bike week event is almost here! Bike week 2010 is from Feb. 26th to March 7th. Every damn year I say to myself I’m going to open up a booth and sell some of my leather jackets, but every year I never get around to it until it’s too late!

I have a small gallery you see in the top left sidebar of bike week 2009. I got up there late in the day so I did not have time to take much pictures. This year I’m going to spend a full day up there taking videos with my new camcorder!

This year is going to be a good one, with record bikers attending. You might think that with the recession not many would show up. But bikers are resourceful types, and bike week is too big to pass up!
