JANN HENDRY/Acorn Newwspapers IT’S A BREEZE–Mikey Teutul, right, doesn’t mind the cold weather as he departs the Rock Store. Mikey and his dysfunctional TV biker family rode into town last weekend.


The Rock Store, the popular biker hangout in rural Agoura, received a visit from “American Chopper” stars Paul Teutul Sr., Paul Teutul Jr. and Mikey Teutul last Saturday.

The father-and-sons team joined more than 100 motorcycle riders from the local area and from out of town in a ride from the Rock Store to the House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard, via Mulholland and Pacific Coast highways.

Waiting at the end of the ride was an “American Chopper” premiere party celebrating the show’s recent move from The Discovery Channel to The Learning Channel.

The weekend’s frosty temperatures failed to dampen enthusiasm. Film crews also were on hand.

“American Chopper” profiles the father/son chopper building team and their family business, Orange County Choppers of New York. It begins its fourth season at 9 p.m. tonight, Jan. 18, on TLC.

The first show features a chopper build-off between Paul Sr. and Paul Jr., the father and eldest son, who are often seen at odds with one another.

Additional episodes include the construction of a special
custom bike for Indy race car driver Danica Patrick.
