Winter is the worst time of year for motorcycle riders.

In an effort to provide them with a look ahead at riding season, Sandwich’s Black Magic Customs hosted its fifth annual Wicked Wheels Weekend at the Best Western Plus Timber Creek Inn & Suites on Jan. 12 and 13.

With sponsorship assistance, a visit from “Clean Dean” Shawler from Easyriders magazine, the pink “Pullin’ for a Cure” tractors, the fallen heroes memorial, several vendors, a swap meet for the first time and motorcycles of every kind, the show was a success for the fifth year.

Proceeds from the show benefit Odd Fellows and Rebekahs charities, and members were on hand to sell raffle tickets and offer assistance as needed.

Lynn Hoffman, co-owner of Black Magic Customs with her husband, Phil, calls these motorcycle riders, “true bikers.”
