Greetings Friends!
To those of you who pointed out that our newsletter (and monthly prize winner) is late, please allow me to retort. Chuck is NEVER late! I will admit that on occasion it does take me a bit longer to be on time though.

* SEPTEMBER WINNER
Although I really liked sending out a bunch of tee shirts and making 25 people somewhat happy, this time we're going back to a single prize and making one person really happy. That person is:

Alex Krombholz

If that's your name, all you have to do is send me an e-mail to confirm and you win a $300 Corbin gift certificate.

Please include your shipping address so I know where to send it and get your confirmation directly to me at: chuck@corbin.com You've got two weeks and the clock starts ticking now!

* HOW IT WORKS (AGAIN)
Just a heads up to our new members that may wonder how you get signed up for our prize drawing. It's very simple, if you're reading this, then you're already done. We pull a random name from our subscriber list once a month. The catch? You have to read the newsletter to see that you've won and respond by e-mail within two weeks. That's it, good luck.

Yes, one of these days I'll make this info into a webpage so I don't have to keep writing it in the newsletter. Sorry.

* RETURN OF THE RALLY
The Hollister Motorcycle Rally Committee is official. Last week, the final decisions were made to solidify the Committee and present it to the town council. This was well received by all and further points to the rally's official return! Sheriff Hill has stated that the extended rally activities at Bolado Park would be approved this year and all reports indicate that both the City Council and County Board of Supervisors have positive votes for the rally's 60th anniversary return.

* CONTRIBUTIONS
Many thanks to all that have sent me pics of their bikes! I've got a collection of images that we'll be including in future newsletters and on the Corbin website natch. Look for your pic showing up here soon (thanks Bruce!) Likewise, anybody else that wants to show off their beloved is welcome to send me a pic for inclusion on the site. Just send it along to chuck@corbin.com

Note: our network will only allow attachments up to 450k, so please scale digital images down if necessary! Thanks.

* A COOL PROJECT
Bernice MacNaughton High School Bike Club: This club was setup by a gent that answers to Marc Mazerolle. Basically the club was established to help at risk kids become more enthusiastic about school and make new friends. They've been restoring and customizing bicycles and even built one from scratch.

This year they're taking on a whole new project and building their first motorcycle. The project is to be a custom Bobber appropriately named Numero Uno. Naturally, we've jumped in and supplied one of our Bobber seats for the cause. Looking forward to seeing some great things here and we'll keep you posted when we get some pix. This is motorcycling's future after all!

* ORMOND BEACH
You'll notice a nice rendering of the new Corbin East Coast showroom at the bottom of the attached image. The building is coming along quite nicely and we're looking to move our Daytona Beach location in January of 2007 (in time for Bike Week!)

* CYBER TRASH
Yeah, we threated to post tales from the Corbin staff ride on our website. I even went so far as to pen the first entry... then I realized that it had somehow grown into a very long story. It's no secret that your pal Chuck is gifted (inflicted) with a touch of the ole Irish Blarney, but this was a whopper even by my standards. As such, we never posted it.

Then it dawned on me that since it's not actually getting printed, there's no harm in it. Sure, there's no redeeming qualities either, but you'll need something to do when you get bored with Ebay and Myspace right? With any luck, maybe Google will come in and offer us a cool Billion for the page. HA.

Anyway, for those who asked to hear tales from the Corbin staff ride, you will find the first entry at the link below. Just give me a day or two to edit it down a bit.

* RALLY SCHEDULE
It's on and it's happening right now in Daytona Beach, Florida! This will likely be the last big motorcycle event at our store on Main street. Come bike week, you'll have to check out our new space in Ormond Beach.

Biketoberfest
Daytona Beach, FL
October 18 - 22, 2006

Alright gang, we'll hit ya back real soon (really, it won't be a month this time). Hope you can go out and enjoy some late season mileage before winter arrives!
