SUNSHINE!
Out Hollister way, we've finally seen a bit of the sun. Sure, it was only for a couple of days but we'll happily take what we can get. (This also explains why you didn't see a newsletter from us last week... zoom zoom!) Hopefully Spring is springing in your neck of the woods too.

Oh yeah... Happy Belated Easter!

* THE WINNER!
Congrats to Colin Mac Donald for baggin' the dough in our monthly drawing. Just for having the tenacity to read through my drivel on a weekly (almost) basis, he scored a $250 Corbin Gift Certificate. That'll help ease the burden on the pocketbook (and his posterior) for his trip to Americade this year.

Another drawing is just around the corner, so look for your name in this spot!


* CHUCK IS STOKED
Correction: Chuck is damn stoked! As I mentioned above, we're building up our photo studio. We're not talking about adding a couple of lights and a new roll of seamless paper either. No boys and girls, we're talking a FULL Cyclorama (schhhhwwwwingggg!) and get this... It's got an eight foot turntable in the middle of it (look closely at the pic and you can barely see it). On the left side is a giant Erector set for hanging reflectors, lights or whatever. All wrapped up in a tidy 18' square that dwarfs our current softbox (top of picture).

OK, so maybe YOU don't care but this is like catnip for photo geeks like me!


HOLLISTER UPDATE
The latest news on the 2006 Hollister rally is that there is no news. The city still says there's no rally scheduled for this year, but everyone we talk to seems to be coming anyway. Naturally this leads to rumors of how all you rowdy bikers are gonna come beat us up this July. Here's one of my favorite quotes from local media:

San Benito County Sheriff said his department would follow 's lead during what he predicts will be a "dirty, rotten, stinking non-event."

Sure, I took it out of context but you have to admit it sounds funny.


* RALLY SCHEDULE
OK gang, we're offically on the way to:
Laughlin River Run
Laughlin, NV
April 26 - 30, 2006

Next stop:
Myrtle Beach Bike Week
Myrtle Beach, SC
May 12 - 21, 2006


* HELP WANTED
OK, you passed up your opportunity when I posted in this newsletter that we were looking for a full time photog. Now you've missed your shot at a really cool studio playground (something you will lament for some time I'm sure). So maybe now you'll take me a bit more seriously when I say that we're always looking for good folks that have a passion for bikes. Right now we could use help in IT and R&D... or maybe you're just the person we didn't even know we needed!

If you think you may want to work at Corbin's, just drop us your resume' in the body of an e-mail (no attachments please!) Sent it to corbin01@corbin.com or check out our career opps at: http://www.corbin.com/jobs/

Speaking of work, I've got a bit piling up while I blather on and on so I better wrap this up. Have a great week and keep the Corbin side up.

Happy Trails,
Chuck
