I can't believe it's already May!!! We have been so busy both here at work on CycleFish and trying to get out and ride as much as possible (which explains why the newsletters are getting later and later each month). But busy is least for us. Last month was another record month here on CycleFish with over 300,000 visitors to the site, and this month is already shaping up to blow that away!!! We also had just under 1,000 people sign up last month, so don't forget to say hi to our new members when you're on the site.
We did find time to make it out to the Laughlin River Run... at least for the first two days of it. Now I'll be honest and let you know that I am really not a big fan of the Laughlin River Run. Over the past 6 years or so it has become so over commercialized and policed, that it is really nothing more than a biker shopping mall. However we did have a great ride out with our friends Shadow & Diane (SearchAngel191), and Paula. And for the first time I can remember we made it across the desert without seeing 110° weather! While there we did run into quite a few CycleFish members and even a few business members sitting in the hot sun selling their wares. Andrea - from Wrapter - and her hubby brought their dual-sports and got some fun desert riding in across the river in Bullhead City!
The next few events for Laura and I will be... San Diego School Girl Run, Redwood Run, and then Too Broke for Sturgis (which we are). Hopefully we will see some of you there!

What's New on CycleFish
User Garage / Service Tracker
Well not actually new, we have made a lot of changes and improvements to the Service Tracker feature. The Garage not only allows you to share information about your bike(s) , it also includes Service Tracker - a convenient way to keep track of all your service and maintenance on your bike. To learn more about this see the Garage/Service Tracker Video. To start using your Garage - log in to CycleFish, go to My Apps and click on Garage.
New Contest - Motorcycle Photo of the Month
We decided to change things up a bit, so this month instead of the usual Bike of the Month Contest we will be doing a Motorcycle Photo of the Month Contest. This contest will be for Creative, Scenic and/or Unique Photographs that include a motorcycle (doesn't have to be yours), but we do ask for only photos that you have taken.
