Another World Exclusive! We shoot Valentino Rossi's
MotoGP World Championship winning Yamaha YZR M1B

Million Dollar Baby, Los Angeles, May 1st 2005 - In another Fast world exclusive, we were excited and privileged this past week to photograph Valentino Rossi's 2004 World Championship winning Yamaha M1 for the Fast Dates Racebike Pinup Calendar. Our own Editor and Calendar photographer Jim Gianatsis used his secret connections at the Yamaha factory to arrange for Rossi's million dollar rocket ship to be flown in to our executive studios in Los Angeles for an exclusive shoot for our premier racebike pinup calendar.

The beautiful model for the shoot was our own SBK Fast Dates World Superbike Calendar Angel and Ducati Corse Umbrella Girl, Miss Texas and Hawaiian Tropic International beauty pageant winner and actress "Rockin' Robin Cunningham. We were happy that Robin could take time out from her busy schedule to help us out, a schedule which includes hosting 3 different TV series and the filming of a major motion picture staring Robin. The movie is a horror flick named Campfire being filmed in Yosemite National Park with Robin as a Park Policeman trying to find out who or what is killing off the unhappy campers. campfire kiss scheduled for release on October 6th of this year, but we will be joining Robin on the red carpet for the premier at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles on October 6th.

The three new TV shows, also now in production, which Robin is hosting include X Music on the WB Channel which begins airing in June, where our girl interviews hot up and coming new rock bands. Then there's a show called Black Belt TV for a new martial arts network which will be premiering soon, where Robin just might get to show us her Texas bar room brawling and beer bottle bashing skills, learned in part from fending off Hawaiian Tropic pageant celebrity judges and drunken sport bike riders at the Blue Fin Bar on Cannery Row during race weekend at Laguna Seca.

Robin's third new TV series is called Underwater Oddessy on the ABC Family Channel which begins airing May 7th. We will be watching intensely to see if those playful dolphins she's cavorting with in the Pacific Ocean might accidentally dislodge her bikini top. With this being the Disney Channel, the chances are slim to none for an on air wardrobe malfunction, but just seeing our perky Robin in a soaking wet swimsuit emerging from the chilly ocean is more than enough to restore our family values and viewing habits.

After our studio shoot with Robin and Rossi's bike we fired up the 240 hp missile and blasted it down 10 miles of twisty Mullholland Highway to the world famous weekend biker hangout The Rock Store in nearby Cornell, CA. There Jim commerated and recreated with Robin (see picture above) the 1994 Fast Dates Calendar cover with model Ginger Sweitzer and reigning World Champ Wayne Rainey's Yamaha YZR500 Grand Prix bike. This new picture to be featured in the next Fast Dates Calendar, in our Calendar Gallery in Members Corner, and available for sale on .

Our favorite tag team, current and former SBK Fast Dates World Superbike girls (left to right) Andra Cobb (now a brunette!), Taylor McKegney and Chandi Mason got together with us last month for the shooting of the 2006 Garage Girls calendar sponsored by Feelin' Lucky. All three girls are profiled in's Meet the Models and featured in Members Corner.

Meet the Calendar Angels at the World Premier of the new 2006 Calendars at the Los Angeles Calendar Motorcycle Show! July 15-16th 2005.

Neil Hodgson Rides with Fast Dates
Malibu, CA, May 29th -Sunday morning at the Coffee Bean in Malibu, California, you never know who might show up to go riding with our regular sport bike crowd. This morning it was World and British Superbike Champion Neil Hodgson who is temporarily living in nearby Newport Beach, CA, with his family while contesting the 2006 AMA Superbike Championship in America for Ducati.

Neil is close friends with another misplaced Brit, Poppy, one of our favorite Sunday canyon riding regulars, and Poppy had invited Neil to join us on his weekend off from racing. Poppy is a former British Royal Marines Special Forces Commando, now working as a body guard for a well known rock star and living in Los Angeles. The Champ Neil had never ridden the canyons before and was justifiable cautious. "When you're own a race track you can learn too go fast progressively, lap after lap for 20 laps or so to learn the limit. Here you don't know what's around the next corner and it really is frightening!"

Neil was riding Poppy's borrowed 999S Ducati, and we knew riding a Superbike in the canyons might be a handful even for a World Champ, so we traded off with Neil and let him ride our Multistrada S ('s Bike of the Year) with its upright seating and higher bars. Neil had never ridden a multistrada before and was totally blown away, and instantly quicker, though he did look a little funny sticking his foot out in the tighter corners. "I'm use to putting my knee out in the corner to feel where the track is! The Multistrada is so much higher I felt I need to put my foot out to feel where the road was in the corners!"

Needless to say, we won't tell anyone. Later in the ride we ended up at our favorite biker hangout, The Rock Store on Mullholand Highway in the Santa Monica Mountains for breakfast, and Rock Store owner Ed just happened to have the current 2005 Fast Dates Calendar with Neil's 2003 World Championship winning Ducati 999F03 on the cover with Miss Great Britain Nicki Lane. Neil got to see the Calendar for the first time and autographed it for Ed. Latter that evening our riding group all meet up again at Poppy's house for Poppy's wedding to his lovely riding partner Zoey, and I brought the whole wedding group Neil and Poppy their own Fast Dates Calendars. Needless to say, Poppy certainly has his priorities right when it comes to moving back your wedding a few hours so you can go riding with your mates. Congratulations Poppy and Zoey!

Poppy doesn't look too nervous about his pending wedding in a few hours as Neil checks out his World Championship winning Ducati in Fast Dates.

DJ Samantha Lee and Ballentine appearing at
LA Calendar Bike Show
Long Beach , July 16-17th - Beautiful DJ Samantha Lee ( has just been confirmed to spin her original tunes both days in the exciting new Metric Midway at this July's LA Calendar Motorcycle Show. The Metric Midway features our exclusive, Jardine West Coast Horsepower Dyno Shootout, the new Ducati bike display, and the 2Wheel Tuner magazine Sportbike Contest.
Stop by Sammys website to preview her tunes which will rock the Midway all weekend between blasts of the Jardine Dyno

Plus, just one of the incredible bands performing on stage throughout the weekend at the other end of the Queen Mary Park is Ballentine, an LA based pop/punk/rock band, began by touring internationally with the USO. Shortly after, they signed an "In-Theater" documentary deal with MovieTunes, which led to having numerous songs from their album, "4U" played in over 20,000 AMC/Carmike Theaters nationwide. Heather (lead vocals) and Frank (bass/vocals) starred on ABC's nationally televised summer reality show, "The Ultimate Love Test" which exposed Ballentine's music to millions of viewers.

Umbrella Girl Apparel?
I'm a huge Honda superbike Fan. I own a 2004 RC51 painted in West Honda Pons trim. I've been looking to the ends of the earth to find a West Honda Pons Umbrella girl outfit for my girlfriend. To complete the package as it were. If could you point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. I would graciously submit any resulting photos to your web site. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.
Kind Regards, Matthew Troy

Dear Matt, You'll never get the trick spandex umbrella uniform from a factory team. They only custom make enough for their own use (meaning expensive). Nor would they sell it to appear somewhere they can not control. Team Ducati Corse has my Calendar models return all their team grid girl apparel at the end of the race day.
You may be able to buy some licensed team apparel from, They have team shirts and caps you can match to a skirt, but the spandex umbrella girl stuff you'll have to make yourself if you really want it. Best regards,
Jim Gianatsis, Director
