FastDates 1991Playboy Playmate Pamela Anderson with all-natural enhancements was featured on the cover of the first Fast Dates Calendar whicd we photographed 20 years ago. The bike is Miguel Duhamel's Yoshimur Suzuki GSXR750 running Mikuni RS Flatside Carburetors. A few new copies of the 1991 calendars are still available for sale in Collectors Corner.

The 20th Anniversary of the Fast Dates Calendar!
By Jim Gianatsis

It's unreal to think it's been 20 years we've been producing the Fast Dates Racebike Swimsuit Model PinUp Calendar. The first 1991 edition of the then Mikuni Fast Dates Calendar premiered in the summer of 1990 featuring a then unknown Playboy Playmate on the cover named Pamela Anderson, posing in a pink bikini in the saddle of Miguel Duhamel's Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R750L AMA Superbike. Then published by Mikuni American, still one of my advertsing cleints today, the Calendar was used as a promotion to show all the top racing bikes of the time which used Mikuni carburetors.

A little know fact, but there actually were earlier Mikuni Calendars, but the public never got to see them. In the 1980s Mikuni purchased pre printed nude model calendars from a printer in Japan imprinted with Mikuni's company name on them, and sent them out to distributors and friends at Christmas time. I became their ad agency around 1987 and convinced them it might be fun to publish our own nude calendar and incorporate the Mikuni carburetors in the pictures. The first original Mikuni Calendar was published for 1990 and featured my photo of Playboy Playmate Terri Lynn Doss on the cover holding a Mikuni carburetor, with purchased stock photos of nude Penthouse models inside. We advertised the calendar in Cycle News the fall and sold out the complete print run of 1,000.

For 1991 we wanted to try and offer them retail in motorcycle dealers through Mikuni distributors, but we knew we could sell nude pinup model calendars in a family visited motorcycle dealership, so I shot the next calendar with all the models in swimsuits or lingerie with top racing bikes that used Mikuni carburetors and Fast Dates was born. In successive years other Mikuni Calendars were made for their other markets: Berm Busters motocross, Hot Waves personal watercraft, Iron & Lace custom bikes, Ripped Pavement roadracing action and Garage Girls pinups. As the markets have changed, and sexual harassment laws became established and enforced in America, some of those titles have come and gone, Mikuni American gave their Calendar program to Gianatsis Design.

It might be noted that back in the 1970s and early 1980's even major American motorcycle distributors U.S. Suzuki and Yamaha USA published and gave away pinup model calendars featuring Playboy Playmates and Hawaiian Tropic girls. Today both of them and American Honda have corporate policies that their team race bikes can not be photographed with swimsuit models. One of the main reasons why Fast Dates is now only photographed at World Superbike races and is endorsed by SBK, a european based organization on a continent where beautiful women are allowed to be admired, not labeled as exploitation and pornography.

Heather Rae Young

Shooting with 2 more Beautiful
new Fast Dates Calendar Kittens

Sept 2009 - We discovered beautiful up coming new Playboy Playmate Heather Rae Young (above, waiting for a stiff breeze) wondering around aimlessly at this year's 2009 LA Calendar Motorcycle Show. We couldn't help ourselves but to offer to make her even more famous by becoming a Calendar Kitten and shooting her for the next 2011 Calendars. Somehow she fell for our stupid pickup line.

We must be doing something right! We even convinced Heather to do a girl/girl shoot with supermodel Tarah Tobiason (at right).

Our newest Calendar Kittens shot together this month with photographer Jim Gianatsis for all three 2011 Garage Girls Iron & Lace, and Fast Dates Calendars with Valentino Rossi's YZR1 MotoGP bike and Ben Spies Yamaha R1 World Superbike. Talk about world class!
