Edelweiss Ducati Laguna Seca MotoGP California Tour
“A motorcycle is the only way to see America.” Those are Peter Fonda’s words and he should know. The FastDates.com Calendars present the ultimate Edeweiss Ducati tour which will lead you through what is possibly the most beautiful state in America, California, to the ultimate motorcycle race, the U.S. MotoGP at Laguna Seca. There you'll hang with Ducati fans in the Ducati Midway and Grandstand, possibly meet World Champions Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden, and watch breathtaking race action in the "Corkscrew". You can choose to party with thousands of race fans on Monterey's Cannery Row on Saturday night, and unwind in Clint Eastwood's beautiful, quiet little town of Carmel on Sunday evening. The next morning we'll head south on the Pacific Coast Highway One, a twisty ribbon of asphalt between the mountains and the ocean on what is called the most beautiful, thrilling road in the world!
The Tour will start and finish in Los Angeles at the legendary Queen Mary ghost ship in the Port of Long Beach. We'll meet up on Saturday during the 20th anniversary celebration of the LA Calendar Motorcycle Show featuring the incredible custom bikes and beautiful models featured in the FastDates.com Motorcycle PinUp Calendars, including the official Ducati Corse Fast Dates World Superbike Calendar Kittens. You'll meet some of America's top custom bike builders featured in the Iron & Lace Calendar, check out the World Record Dyno Shootout, enjoy the Calendar Girl Music Festival, and the Calendar Bike Builder's party in the Ship's art deco Observation bar that night.
California has just about everything, and we will see most of it: mountains, desert, the Pacific Coast Highway, spectacular National Parks, beautiful cities like San Francisco and smaller towns like Carmel. California is a perfect country for riding the beautiful red bikes from Bologna. You'll be able to choose between the legendary Ducati Monster or the critically acclaimed Multistrada -the world's best sport touring bike, to take you through breathtaking landscapes including twisty mountain passes, spectacular ocean roads and fertile valleys. The lightweight bikes will easily bring you to all the Californian landmarks: Golden Gate Bridge, Sequoia and Yosemite National Park, Hearst Castle, Hollywood and the Queen Mary.
Los Angeles, San Francisco, Carmel and Santa Barbara have plenty of sightseeing and shopping opportunities. Sequoia and Yosemite National Park offer breathtaking scenery, waterfalls and giant trees, while the Sierra Nevada and the Pacific coastal mountains provide some of the best motorcycle roads in northern America. Just add the power, sound and feel of a Ducati motorcycles, meet beautiful California girls and World Champion racer boys – and here is your perfect vacation! Join FastDates.com and Edelweiss for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation and explore the Golden State, attend the LA Calendar Motorcycle Show and MotoGP race weekend.

The Ducati Edelweiss Imola Superbike Tour - Italy, the Factory & Museum, Imola WSBK!
By Jim Gianatsis, Editor
Bologna Italy, September 2010 -We love the Edelweiss Motorcycle Tours, especially across Europe. Their new Ducati sponsored Edelweiss Imola tour this year across beautiful Tuscany in Northern Italy, starts off with a visit to the Ducati factory in Bologna to pick up new Multitstrada 1200s, and ends the following weekend at the Imola World Superbike races. This was a must-do working vacation for any hardcore sportbike enthusiast! We had never been to Imola before, and were excited to find it was another classic european race circuit like Monza, Le Mans and Nuremberg Ring, set in a beautiful forest in the middle of the city. We picked up our Media Credentials in the middle of town at the local town hall, then crossed a nearby bridge half a block away over a river right into the track's Paddock Area.

Making its world premier at the 2010 Calendar Motorcycle Show was this aluminum re bodied retro styled Ducati 999S Superbike commission by a customer named Devon. Why not take Ducati's World Superbike Championship winning 999 Superbike in "S" configuration with the high end Ohlins race suspension and Brembo brakes. The Ducati that also happens to be the most comfortable riding of all the Ducati Superbikes. One that you can buy used now for around $8,000.
Then have legendary customizer Shinya Kimura re body it for you with unique hand fabricated aluminum bodywork. Rather than being one of 2,000 MH900E owners with a bike they can't ride, you are now just one of 1 with the ultimate ride able Ducati retro superbike that will blow the MH900E into the weeds, performance wise, and value wise over the coming years. Sheer genius! Congratulations Devon on having the ultimate 2-wheel retro racer. A unique one-off bike you can admire and ride. For additional information go to Calendar Bike Garage
Calendar Kittens host "Last Night a DJ Saved by Life" benefit
Los Angeles Fashion District , CA, Feb 14th 2011 - It was an exciting evening of glitz, glamor, paint and canvas, and beautiful Calendar Kittens as the world renown charity FeedAModel.com held their annual artwork and music gala on a warm mid-winter evening in the adv-ant garde Fashion District of downtown Los Angeles. The event took place at Haute Olive on 838 S. Spring Street, a vintage fashion boutique on the cutting edge of what's now and hip. Hosted by the charity's founders, FastDates.com Calendar Kittens and multi media artists Apple Price and Melody Schuster, FeedAModel.com is dedicated to keeping beautiful young models off the streets, out of trouble, and from going hungry by giving them the opportunity to learn and express their artistic skills, and then a safe and exciting venue to showcase and sell their artwork. You won't find these dedicated, talented and smart young ladies partying with Charlie Sheen in Las Vegas or Girls Gone Wild on Spring Break!
Both models Apple and Melody have been featured in recent editions of the FastDates.com Motorcycle PinUp Calendars, and they appeared at the last two LA Calendar Motorcycle Shows to help premier their new Calendars. "Feed A Model gives nice young ladies the opportunity to be productive citizens and great role models in a town run amuck with the inebriated divas and substance abused actors you see showcased every night on the 6 O'Clock News", explains Schuster. "It's something we are passionate about, to give back to the community which has helped us to become successful models, multi media artists and world famous FastDates.com Calendar Kittens!"
The guest list at the "Last Night a DJ Saved by Life" benefit included Great Britain's Price William and his fiancee Kate Middleton, actresses Amanda Seyfried and Emma Stone, sports icons David Hamilton, David Beckham and Maria Sharapova, and former American president Bill Clinton.

Making a not too unexpected appearance was FastDates.com Calendars and Website publishing magnate and photographer Jimmy "The Greek" Gianatsis. The Calendar Kittens first greeted Jim with hugs and kiss outside at the curb when he arrived in his limo, then brought him inside the store gallery to meet the other models and guests, and then a guided tour of the art exhibition. The artwork and guests spilled out onto the sidewalk where a live DJ was spinning tunes to add to the fun party atmosphere. After plying "The Greek" with a few glasses of champaigne, the girls soon had him pulling out his checkbook to add some of their incredible artwork to his noted collection back at the Calendar Kitten Mansion.
In all it was quite an incredible evening and everyone had a great time. You can find out more about FeedAModel, their incredible charity work, shop their artwork and find out when their next excitig event is by visiting www.FeedAModel.com
