Rommel’s Full Throttle Weekend

Pink Sportster

Full Throttle Weekend at Rommel Harley-Davidson in New Castle, Delaware on April 13th and 14th was big and exciting! For a dealership event it was pretty good.

Drag Specialties
The simplicity of the event is what made it so good. Bring in three of the best custom motorcycle parts vendors, serve free hot dogs and hamburgers, and have two hot chicks walk around in short skirts with fish net stockings! Bam! Automatic zero to sixty motorcycle event… as long as you bring in spectacular weather too. And guess what?! Spectacular weather was served up as well as the hot off the grill burgers and dogs that the First State HOG volunteers were flip’n.

Precision Machine

Performance Machines on Display

The Drag Specialties, Precision Machine and Kuryakyn booths were cool. Rommel customers had the opportunity to see the latest and greatest chrome and powder coated accessories on the market. Drag Specialties and Precision Machine brought phenomenal custom motorcycles to display their hardware that were so impressive I almost didn’t notice those two young ladies in fish net stockings.  The only thing that would have been cooler would be to have Roland Sands of Performance Machine fame on hand to sign my autograph book. Maybe next year.

2013 MAV St Patty’s Day Poker Run


The MAV St Patty’s Day Poker Run is the best way to usher in the new riding season in New Castle, Delaware! The 16th annual MAV St Patty’s Day Poker Run took place on March 16th. The event started at Rommel Harley-Davidson in New Castle, DE and ended at Just Mugs on Route 40.

All MAV events raise money for local motorcyclists injured in accidents. This is a charity for bikers by bikers! This early spring event welcomes in the new riding season, gives old friends a chance to get reacquainted after the traditional winter hibernation, and fills the MAV coffers with funds to help downed motorcyclists. Registration is just a few dollars and includes lunch. You get to knock the dust off your scooter, feel the wind in your hair and have a few laughs with the good natured MAV volunteers. Best of all, the money goes to a good cause!

Although Mother Nature contributed in the last two years by donating sensational spring weather, this year she was not so charitable. The sunshine was lacking and we all know what that means to riders: maybe we get some chores done around the house and take the hog out next weekend. This is a rain or shine event and the die-hard volunteers who show up every year were of course in attendance. But attendance of riders was naturally on the low side leaving the coffers light.

Do us all a favor; plan on heralding in the new riding season next March by participating in the 17th annual run. In the mean time please help MAV raise funds for injured motorcyclists. It’s easy to donate! Just visit their website at
