visionThe Vision to See

By Leticia Cline
For Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys

Sometimes its nice to not plan, to just go wherever the road takes us and put our trust in the journey instead of our schedules. Yet any seasoned rider knows–things rarely go as planned on the road.  That’s why sometimes you just have to go at it blind, because worse than not being able to see is having no vision at all.

Sculpted Dash Inserts are a simple and effective way to create a custom tank console appearance at a fraction of the cost for a complete replacement.

Sculpted Ignition Switch Covers are cast from A380 aluminum and install over the existing unit for a hassle-free install with no disassembly required. Styling perfectly complements the dash inserts, with a smooth polished raised center and sand-casted sloping edges for a distinctive sculpted look. Multiple fitments are available for most ’07-’18 Electra Glides, Street Glides and Trikes.

Pro Stock MotorcycleHines Wins All-Harley Pro Stock Motorcycle Final At Pomona

World Champion Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines Team Closes Season with a Dominating Performance

Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines rider Andrew Hines defeated teammate Ed Krawiec in an all-Harley-Davidson Pro Stock Motorcycle final at the Auto Club NHRA Finals at Auto Club Raceway for his first final round win of the 2017 season. Hines rode a Harley-Davidson Street Rod competition motorcycle to reach his 48th career win and move up to second place in the final season standings.

“My side of the team went through a dry spell this season but we never stopped working,” said Hines, a five-time world champion. “This weekend my Street Rod was really hooked up and working well, and there’s nothing better than an all-Harley final. We made a statement to end the season, with the championship for Ed and the two of us racing for the last win. We let everyone know we are carrying a lot of momentum into the off-season.”

The all-Harley final came a day after Krawiec topped qualifying and won his fourth NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle championship. Krawiec led the field after qualifying his Street Rod drag bike with a 6.781-second elapsed time (ET) at 197.68 mph, and carried an insurmountable 156-point into the final Sunday elimination rounds of the Countdown to the Championship playoffs. Hines qualified second for the finals at Pomona with a best ET of 6.799 seconds at 197.13 mph aboard another Screamin’ Eagle team Street Rod bike.

Pro Stock MotorcycleThe Street Rod competition drag bikes are based on the Harley-Davidson Street Rod production motorcycle, an agile middle-weight powered by the liquid-cooled High Output Revolution X 750 engine tuned for maneuvering through traffic and congestion.

Hines and Krawiec charged through the field on Sunday to meet for the 21st time in an NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle final, and for the ninth time Hines prevailed, with a 6.868-second ET to best Krawiec’s 6.930-second run. Krawiec recorded the low ET of the weekend with a 6.803-second blast in the third round on Sunday. Hines set the top Pro Stock Motorcycle speed of the weekend at 197.42 mph in Sunday’s first round.

The Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines team closes out the season with its ninth world championship and eight final-round wins in 16 events. In 2017 Krawiec won seven times in eight national event finals. Krawiec won at the U.S. Nationals on Labor Day weekend and made five of six final rounds in the Countdown playoffs, winning four times, to secure his championship. He was the top qualifier at five races and went 41-9 in elimination rounds. Since joining the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines team in 2008, Krawiec has not finished lower than third in the standings and has 43 career victories, third-most behind Andrew Hines (48) and the late Dave Schultz (45).

Hines’s Pomona win keeps alive his streak of 14 consecutive seasons with at least one victory.

Following the final event of the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship playoffs, Krawiec topped the Pro Stock Motorcycle standings with 2,783 points. Hines finished in second place with 2,614 points.

Lead_image_CliftonClub_Indian_BurtMunro_LimitedEditionBaume & Mercier Limited Edition Burt Munro Watch

It’s been 50 years since Burt Munro took his Indian Scout Streamliner to the Bonneville Salt Flats and made history – a story immortalized by the feature film, The World’s Fastest Indian, starring Sir Anthony Hopkins. As a result, Munro’s legacy transcends motorcycles and symbolizes the much broader drive to push beyond conventional limitations to experience or achieve what is seemingly impossible. Burt Munro is now a household name among “gear heads” across the globe and the ultimate example of the gritty, adrenaline-fueled pastime of expanding the limits of speed at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

In partnership with the Swiss watchmaker, Baume & Mercier, a limited edition watch has been created in celebration of the speed hero and brand’s collaboration.  Today, The Baume & Mercier Clifton Club Indian, Burt Munro Tribute was unveiled for the very first time at EICMA 2017 and is available online for pre-sale.

Recognizing the year Munro set his iconic land speed record, the watch will be limited to just 1,967 pieces. The limited-edition timepiece features a number of special details designed to commemorate the extraordinary achievement of Burt Munro, including:

  • Munro’s lucky number 35 in the chronograph seconds counter
  • Calfskin strap in deep vermillion red identified with Indian Motorcycle as well as the color of the Munro’s Scout Streamliner
  • Silver dial sandblasted to mimic the surface of the Bonneville Salt Flats
  • The counterbalance of the seconds hand features the Indian Motorcycle “I” script logo
  • The 44mm stainless steel case has a tachymeter scale on the bezel, which features Munro’s record of 184 mph
  • On the back, the famous Indian Motorcycle headdress logo is engraved, as well as that watch’s number within the 1,967 limited inventoryBurt Munro

The Baume & Mercier Clifton Club Munro Limited Edition watch is available for pre-order now for delivery in April 2018. MSRP is $3,750. Visit www.baume-et-mercier.com for more information.

FTR1200Indian Motorcycle Honors Flat Track “Wrecking Crew” at EICMA with Scout FTR1200 Custom Unveil

Scout FTR1200 Custom to go on World Tour to Expand Indian Motorcycle’s Reach to New Audiences

[EICMA Show, Milan] Indian Motorcycle today recognized its championship-winning American Flat Track race team, the Wrecking Crew, with a custom-built Scout FTR1200 street bike. 

The Scout FTR1200 Custom takes inspiration from the Scout FTR750’s purpose-built flat track race bike that Indian’s “Wrecking Crew” piloted throughout a dominating championship season in the 2017 American Flat Track Series. Built in partnership with Indian’s race team, the one-off custom houses the Scout’s street-legal 1133cc V-Twin engine.

As well as honoring Indian’s race team of Jared Mees, Bryan Smith and Brad Baker, the Scout FTR1200 Custom serves as an exploration of how Indian could expand brand perception around the world, with exciting new offerings that are relevant to a wider-ranging consumer set.

FTR1200Out of the 18 flat track races that took place in 2017, the Indian Wrecking Crew took 37 of the 54 podium positions available, including six podium sweeps and 14 race wins, bringing Indian the manufacturer’s title and Mees his fifth AMA Grand National Championship.

Not only that, Mees, Smith and Baker swept the 2017 AFT Championship – placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd, respectively.

Mees tallied 10 wins out of 18 races and set a new single-season record of 17 finishes on the podium, while Smith was on the podium nine times, with four wins, three runner-ups and two third-place finishes. Baker tallied 10 podiums, despite being out with an injury and unable to compete in the final two races. He earned five runner-ups and five third-place finishes.
