Allstate Teams Up with Dave Perewitz to Help Increase Motorcycle Awareness and Safety. Perewitz-designed bike worth $50,000 will be given away.
Allstate announced it is partnering with Dave Perewitz, one of the top bike builders in the country and an icon in the motorcycle industry, for its 2009 Mobile Garage Tour. Perewitz will hit the kickstand and join Allstate at select motorcycle rallies throughout 2009 to talk bike with his fellow cyclists and discuss the best ways to help keep riders and their bikes protected.
In addition to the tour, Allstate will be giving away a $50,000 custom motorcycle built by Perewitz. Rally attendees will have the chance to check out and win a custom Perewitz-built bobber motorcycle designed specifically for the company’s 2009 tour. Participants can register for the "2009 Allstate Motorcycle Sweepstakes" at each tour stop, as well as online at www.allstategarage.com. The sweepstakes will run through February 15, 2010.
"We’re thrilled that Dave Perewitz is joining us on the road to help rev up the conversation about motorcycle safety," said Julie Parsons, vice president of Allstate’s consumer household unit. "And we’re excited to be able to give away this cool bike designed by a motorcycle legend."
Perewitz has built an illustrious thirty-year career in riding, building and customizing motorcycles. In 2006, he was named the winner of the Discovery Channel’s Biker Build-off, and his company, Perewitz Cycle Fabrications, has built choppers for numerous celebrities, including Hulk Hogan and Aerosmith’s Brad Whitford.
Before select rallies throughout the country, Allstate will donate Motorcycle Safety Foundation training videos and materials to local drivers education classes and other organizations to help prevent all-too-common situations in motorcycling – accidents at intersections. With the influx of motorcycles in and around these communities, safe riding and driving is of paramount importance. Additionally, Allstate will distribute safety tip cards for both riders and motorists to help them share the road safely.
In addition to talking about safety, visitors to Allstate’s Mobile Garage will be treated to an interactive experience with custom motorcycle building demonstrations, virtual biker build offs, plus a variety of VIP comforts like massage chairs, misting stations and the chance to speak with Perewitz or on-site Allstate agent about recommended motorcycle insurance features and benefits.
