I know, it’s a goofy title to a real estate blog isn’t it? But if you have any understanding of just how cool it is to ride a Harley (or any other bike of choice) in and around Scottsdale and Phoenix metro or the entire state of Arizona (so much to see!) you’ll know why I have so much enthusiasm for the upcoming Bikeweek event this March/April of 2015. Like my friend Pam who rides says, “Once it’s in your blood you’re hooked” and boy I can tell you that’s the truth.
Bikeweek is about the celebration of riding a motorcycle here in Arizona. It draws in some major vendors and celebrity performances for nearly a week. The weather is always perfectly sunny and there is always something to do. This is a video I took 5 years ago of the event. Since then, it has ballooned into a major extravaganza with the help of GoDaddy billionaire Bob Parsons, the owner of Harley Davidson of Scottsdale. The primary event that Bob is sponsoring is the event at Westworld. Bob is also building the world’s largest Harley Davidson Dealership in the World and has been a major contributor towards the biking community events and local charities. The video below is from 2010 and shows the “start up” of AZBikeweek before the event really gets going. Westworld is located just off the 101 freeway and Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd.
This years AZBikeweek events are simply restricted to Westworld of Scottsdale, however there are numerous hot spots and rides throughout the valley. Here is the AZBikeweek Events Calendar. New events and concerts and so on are being added in to the calendar and the list will be very long by the time AZBikeweek finally arrives, so be sure to check back on that.
One other spot that I frequent (and have since it’s start up 15 years ago) is a place called the Hideaway. It’s become a world renowned spot for bikers who love to ride. Custom builders can be seen showing up from time to time and celebrities as well. Here is a link to check out their page at The Hideaway Grill.
If the mood hits you and you decide to come out our way to Arizona on your bike, be sure to look me up. I also ride and would be happy to intorduce you to some great riding spots around the valley. I also show property on my 2014 Harley Davidson Street Glide Special with full navigation in case you want to see a few homes on your bike.
Keep the rubber side down!
