Indian Motorcycle Racing Secures Its Fifth Podium Sweep Of 2017 Season At Black Hills Half-Mile

Jared Mees Captures Seventh Victory of the Season; 

Scout FTR750 Tallies 29 Total Podiums 

Press Release: The Indian Wrecking Crew and the Scout FTR750 secured their 11th first-place finish and fifth podium sweep of the 2017 American Flat Track season at the Black Hills Half-Mile. Season points leader Jared Mees captured his seventh win of the season, while fellow Wrecking Crew riders Bryan Smith and Brad Baker placed second and third, respectfully.

During the Black Hills Half-Mile Main Event Mees built a lead of over two seconds before a red flag called for a restart. Mees continued his incredible performance and got out well ahead of the field during the restart, while Smith and Baker battled for second.

“With two races in three days, we all had our work cut out for us and my team did an incredible job prepping the Scout FTR750,” said Mees. “With six races remaining, we feel we’re hitting our stride and are putting ourselves in a good position to bring home the championship.”

Through 13 races this season, Indian Motorcycle Racing and the Scout FTR750 have secured 29 of the season’s 39 podiums. The Indian Wrecking Crew holds the top three positions in the season’s point standings with Mees at 272, Smith at 236 and Baker jumping back into third with 196 total points.

“For our team to sweep the Black Hills Half-Mile after running a challenging track at the Buffalo Chip TT just two nights earlier says a lot about their commitment and preparation,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Product for Indian Motorcycle. “It’s no secret the Wrecking Crew is the team to beat. And despite that, Jared, Bryan and Brad continue to bring their very best at each and every race. With six races remaining, we’re making a strong push for the Manufacturer and Individual Championships.”

American Flat Track recognizes Manufacturer Champions in each class. The manufacturer that accumulates the most points in each class over the course of a season is declared the Manufacturer Champion. With its 11th victory on the season, Indian Motorcycle Racing has a sizable lead for the Manufacturer Championship heading into the final six races of the 2017 season.

Indian Motorcycle Racing, backed by Allstate Insurance, will look to continue its incredible run as American Flat Track heads to the Peoria TT on August 13.

AFT GNC TT, Sturgis, SD 8-6-2017

Johnson Puts Factory Harley XG750R On The Podium At The Buffalo Chip TT

Huge Sturgis Rally Crowd Cheers Thrilling Race on a Challenging Course

Press Release: Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Racing Team rider Jake Johnson raced the team’s Harley-Davidson XG750R competition motorcycle to a third-place finish at the Buffalo Chip TT American Flat Track (AFT) Twins national at the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground. Racing in front of a packed crowd on hand for the 77th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Johnson scored the first podium finish for the new XG750R flat tracker and his best finish of the season.

This feels as good as a win,” said Johnson. “Obviously we want to win every time we line up, but the team has been working so hard this season with a new bike and to finally come through and get on the box is a real confidence booster. We know we have the speed and the bike was really working great tonight.”

The Harley-Davidson XG750R flat tracker is a competition motorcycle powered by a race-modified, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected Revolution X™ V-Twin engine originally engineered for the Harley-Davidson Street 750. The XG750R flat tracker motorcycle is not a production model. The Revolution X V-Twin engine is for sale through Harley-Davidson dealers today and can be modified for racing use by aspiring dealers and privateers.

Johnson was in the mix all night as the AFT Twins racers battled for the first time ever in the middle of the Buffalo Chip campground complex on a nine-turn, half-mile TT course that included the season’s only right-hand first turn and a jump on the back stretch.

podium“The track was really tough. It was like racing on a go-kart track,” said Johnson. “And the crowd was wild and right up to the fence. You could look down see the fans when we went over the jump. We even had zip-liners flying overhead. It was really fun to be racing here in front of all of these motorcycle fans at the center of Sturgis Rally action.”

Johnson brought his XG750R home third in a heat race and then won his semi-final heat to earn the second seed and a front-row starting position for the 25-lap main. Johnson was running in fourth place when the race was stopped on lap 10 when a hay bale used to mark the edge of the course was dragged on the track and scattered over the racing line. Johnson was again in fourth place when the race was stopped on lap 15 for a crashed rider. On the ensuing re-start, a motorcycle bottomed out on the jump and spilled oil on the track and the race was halted for the third time. Johnson moved up to third place when racing resumed and held that position to the finish.

Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Racing Team rider Kenny Coolbeth Jr. also made the main on a Factory XG750R after finished third in his semi-final heat. Coolbeth ran as high as fifth place in the main but slipped back on the final re-start and finished the race in 11 place. Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Racing Team rider Brandon Robinson did not make the main after crashing in his semi-final heat.

Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Racing Team will race in the Black Hills area for the second time during the Sturgis Rally on August 8 at the Harley-Davidson Black Hills Half-Mile at the Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, S.D.

The Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Racing Team is proudly partnered with Vance & Hines Motorsports.

DirtQuakeDirtQuake 2017 – No Rules Racing

By Alicia Mariah Elfving
For Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys

Before jumping in to trying to describe the awesomeness that happened at last weekend’s DirtQuake USA in Castle Rock, Washington… we need to review the history of DirtQuake itself.
Dubbed “the Motorcycle Lifestyle Festival” by the DirtQuake folks themselves, they have the perfect explanation for it’s inception. “Irreverent racing is at the heart of DirtQuake. The action takes place on high-adrenaline, loose-surface oval circuits without the hassle, rules and costs usually associated with motorsport. DirtQuake is inclusive – giving riders, enthusiasts and even pro racers a unique chance to take on all comers.” Beginning in the UK, the event made it’s way to America just three years ago. Hosted by Sideburn Magazine and See See Motorcycles, it’s a big weekend long party surrounding fun races that, for $75, anyone with a safe motorcycle can participate in. Tickets cost $20 for the day/$30 for the weekend, and $20 per vehicle to camp.

Camp grounds were filled with big RVs, stylish vans, adventure trucks, and all different kinds and sizes of motorcycles were blasting around every which way. Dogs riding on the tank, kids driving golf carts, youngins riding side-by-side with their parents. Essentially a motorcycle Shangri-La, fun is being had on two wheels everywhere you look. An estimated three wheelies were popped every second that went by, smiles and laughter everywhere.

HyperchargerKuryakyn Hypercharger ES Air Cleaner: Reinventing A Revolution

An unbridled dose of modern style & technology injected into a legendary bloodline.

Press Release: When you hear Hypercharger, you think Kuryakyn. After the hot rod-inspired intake was introduced to V-twin enthusiasts more than 25 years ago, it arguably became the industry’s best-selling aftermarket air cleaner with hundreds of thousands of units sold to-date worldwide. Now, the journey has come full circle with the official introduction of the revolutionary Hypercharger ES.

Representing the evolution of one of the industry’s most iconic products, the Hypercharger ES showcases modern updates in both style and performance. The radical new design features state-of-the-art electronic butterfly engagement, delivering precise butterfly movement compared to vacuum-operated fluttering. An integrated servo motor that connects to the coil actuates and opens the butterflies with every twist of the throttle, creating an interactive experience between rider, air cleaner and motorcycle unlike anything available.

Air delivery is maximized through an all-new Kuryakyn-designed high-flow K&N® filter element. The larger surface area combined with an internal stinger design on the filter’s end cap results in approximately 10-percent more airflow, improved CFM rating, and increased horsepower and torque versus previous Hypercharger models. Third-party dyno tuning performed on a stock Harley-Davidson® 107-cubic-inch Milwaukee-Eight® Touring model produced an 8.5-percent horsepower increase and 3 percent more torque.*

The Hypercharger ES’ aggressively styled modular housing is constructed from high-quality A380 aluminum offered in three finish options. The modular design allows easy customization with Kuryakyn’s Classic Faceplate Kits (sold separately). These interchangeable faceplates feature a fully fluted design with laser-engraved Hypercharger ES emblem to completely alter the style in minutes.

Kuryakyn will have a limited amount of kits available for select Harley-Davidson Twin Cam and Milwaukee-Eight models during the 77th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Visit Kuryakyn’s rally headquarters at the Black Hills Harley-Davidson vendor area in Rapid City, and be one of the first to run the revolutionary Hypercharger ES air cleaner.

Volume production for the Hypercharger ES is slated for early September with fitment for all ’99-’17 Twin Cam and ’17 Milwaukee-Eight models, as well as XL Sportster applications soon to follow.

By David “Double D” Devereoux
Motorcycle Profiling Project

There are many unanswered questions relating to the May 17, 2015 shooting at a Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas. But what is known provides more than enough to establish that an irrefutable miscarriage of justice has occurred.

177 people were arrested without any individualized or specific probable cause. They were arrested solely based on their association with a motorcycle club, including individuals that law enforcement acknowledges committed no crimes. Each individual arrested was given 1-2 million dollar bails explicitly “to send a message”, which is a clear violation of the 8th Amendment’s prohibition against punitive bail.

A cornerstone of a free society is the idea that protecting one innocent person outweighs society’s interest in punishing the guilty. The ends do not justify the means. The issues of false arrest and excessive bail should take priority over the interests of punishing any guilty party present at Twin Peaks. The interests of the innocent are simply more important from a societal perspective.

This is not about any one motorcycle club. What happens in the Waco prosecution will have far reaching impacts on the entire culture of motorcycle clubs and the 1st Amendment issues of expression and association. And the results of the initial trials could have far reaching impacts on the remaining trials.

The Bandidos Motorcycle Club and associates have been targeted and are being prosecuted first. Time is short. Help is needed. The amount of legal resources available often equates to a better defense. The first trial is set for September, 2017.

Any motorcycle club member, motorcyclist, or individual concerned about the wider implications of the Waco tragedy can contribute to the legal defense of the first club being prosecuted by sending checks or money orders to:

Indian Motorcycle Racing Secures 10th Win Of Season and Holds Top Three Positions in Season Standings

Jared Mees Wins Calistoga Half-Mile; Scout FTR750 & Wrecking Crew Tallies 25 of 33 Podiums 

Press Release: Indian Motorcycle Racing and the Scout FTR750 secure its 10th first-place finish of the 2017 American Flat Track season with Jared Mees’ dominant performance at the Calistoga Half-Mile. Mees captured his sixth win of the season, and was joined on the podium by fellow Wrecking Crew rider Brad Baker, who placed third. Together, these finishes propel Indian Motorcycle Racing to 25 of 33 podiums on the season.

Mees remained red hot and proved to be unstoppable around the Calistoga Speedway on his Scout FTR750 during the main event. Mees finished the 25-lap race with a significant 3.571-second margin of victory and sailed by the checkered flag in a one-handed wheelie. The closest battle was for third place between teammates Brad Baker and Bryan Smith, with the former edging out by 0.067 of a second for the podium finish.

“It felt good to get my sixth win of the season at Calistoga Half-Mile,” said Mees. “It was a long three week break since an AFT event, but my team continued to work hard and have my Scout FTR750 dialed for this race.”

Through 11 races this season Mees and Smith own ten first-place finishes. The Wrecking Crew also holds the top three positions in the season’s point standings with Jared Mees at 227, Smith at 209 and Baker 166.

“Indian’s return to flat track was contingent on our ability to develop a truly best-in-class race bike. It goes without saying that we’re incredibly proud of what our team has accomplished with the Scout FTR750,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Product for Indian Motorcycle. “With seven more events, our Wrecking Crew will continue to prepare and work toward finishing the season as strong as they started.” 

Indian Motorcycle Racing, backed by Allstate Insurance, will look to continue its incredible run as American Flat Track heads to the Buffalo Chip TT presented by Indian Motorcycle on August 6.

My name is Chris Gibbany and I have been a BAM member for almost 10 years.  I am from Harrison, a very small town in Arkansas.  Although I have been riding since I was 16, I have never participated in a long ride and I have NEVER taken a “vacation” of any sort.  When I found out that “The Long Road”, a 1000+ mile journey that ends up at The Smoke Out in Rockingham, North Carolina, was leaving from Eureka Springs, just 45 miles from where I live, I started making preparations to ride it on my rigid 1956 Harley FL Panhead.  In the beginning there were seven of us who were going to ride vintage bikes there, with me being the only woman.  I secured sponsorship to help me pay for expenses along the way.  Sta-bil and 303 Products, made by Gold Eagle became my main sponsor.  Avon Tyres came on board with a new set of tires; Spectro Oils gave me a case of 60 weight oil, Viking Bags and Motorcycle House supplied me with a Go-Pro and Baker Drivetrain helped out with a gas card.  Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys offered me funds in return for the story about my ride…Russ Brown

At the last minute, four of the guys backed out.  Since my husband and I were riding two old bikes, with him on a 1946 UL Flathead, we decided to bring a chase rig, leave a day early and arrive at The Smoke Out on Saturday instead of Friday.  Even though “The Long Road” had no particular “rules”, we were no longer qualified to participate in it.

Our trip was pretty uneventful until we got to a small town in Tennessee where we just happened upon the type of motel where you sleep above the covers while firmly gripping the matching “husband and wife” Sig-Sauer pistols that we brought along. When my husband got a text from our chase driver, it read “Will trade beer for pistol”. He wasn’t kidding so we swapped items and each spent the night with one pistol per room with the chair up against the door.

 LegendKlock Werks Goes Cross-Country With Legend Suspensions

Press Release: Klock Werks “klocked out” two 2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glides, and no matter where you are in the country, you might have the opportunity to ride one!

Klock Werks teamed up with Legend Suspension, a suspension line producer out of Sturgis, SD, and is now along for the ride on the annual Legend Suspension Performance Tour and Demo Ride program across the country! Two vans with two bikes, seriously equipped with the best parts Drag Specialities and Parts Unlimited has to offer, haul from state to state to bring reps, dealers, and customers the opportunity to test product for themselves!

It all started about five years ago. Jesse Jurrens, owner, and his team at Legend Suspension knew there was a lot of opportunity in the nation that they weren’t able to tap into. It was time to take that potential into their own hands and inform reps and customers around the country in a new way.

“We knew there was a greater benefit to show up at dealers and have the reps, dealer, and customer ride, touch, and feel the product.” said Jesse.

LegendThe idea to tour the country began, and two years ago, the idea morphed into a plan in which two Ford transit vans would traverse the US, hitting as many folks as possible in 52 weeks.

This year, the 2015 Road Glides are equipped with products by Legend Suspensions, Klock Werks, K&N Filter, Custom Dynamic Lighting, Feuling, and Bassani Exhaust.

“We hit everyone we can, dealers, mom and pop shops, 10-20 dealerships per week,” he said.

Paramount to the success of the program is not just getting the products in front of people but creating a relationship with everyone they meet, from customers, to the techs, sales, and ownership.

LegendKlock Werks already has dealers around the world involved in the “Try It Before You Buy It” Flare Windshield Demo program, but the partnership with Legends Suspensions is one more way for you to try the best products on the market before purchase! Think about the demo program as your own personal dressing room.

It’s this same first-hand experience that Klock Werks has dedicated years to with their campaign, Understand the Difference. Ninety-nine percent of people who demo the Flare Windshield for their motorcycle ride home with it that day. The increased stability, improved air management, and bobblehead elimination never fails to impress! Klock Werks parts don’t just look great, they are made from the best materials the US has to offer, and they actually improve the ride!

Along with the patented Flare Windshield from Klock Werks, the Road Glides have new Klock Werks Device Mounts, powered by iOmounts and Klock Werks audio kits, powered by KICKER. Check out these products for your ride at GetKlocked.com. Shop by Ride to only see parts for your model.

LegendCheck out Legend Suspensions on Facebook to see a list of Demo Events coming up, and be sure to talk to your local dealer to learn more about Klock Werks products. If they aren’t already running the “Try It Before You Buy It” program, we can help them get set up!

TexasPolice in Texas Pressuring Bars to Ban “Motorcycle Colors”

By David “Double D” Devereaux
Motorcycle Profiling Project

Motorcyclists from Texas and around the US, many wearing motorcycle-related patches and colors, regularly visit public establishments and bars in San Marcos, Texas.

Recently, the San Marcos Police Department (SMPD) made a prejudicial recommendation to downtown San Marcos businesses to implement a broad policy of discrimination against any individual wearing motorcycle-related insignia or colors.

These recommendations amount to coercive pressure from a government actor to implement policies of discrimination. It is settled law that motorcycle patches and colors are Constitutionally protected by the 1st Amendment from acts of government discrimination. Prohibiting individuals from expressing themselves with patches or insignia exposes the government to liability under 42 USC §1983.

No agent of the government may pressure or coerce any establishment to impose a dress code that prohibits attendees from wearing clothing displaying the name or symbols associated with a motorcycle organization.

Ed Krawiec Scores Mile-High Milestone

KrawiecKrawiec Scores Mile-High Milestone Aboard Harley Street Rod Drag Bike

New Harley-Davidson Street Rod Notches First Pro Stock Motorcycle Victory

Press Release: Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines rider Ed Krawiec swept through the NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle field at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals at Bandimere Speedway to score the team’s first event win with the new Harley-Davidson Street Rod competition motorcycle.

The Street Rod motorcycle piloted by Krawiec was quick off the trailer and the bike to beat all weekend. Krawiec was the number-one qualifier for the event with a best elapsed time (ET) of 7.178 seconds. Krawiec bested that effort in the final round of eliminations on Sunday with a 7.145-second blast at 188.28 mph to set the quickest ET and fastest speed by a Pro Stock Motorcycle for the event.

KrawiecThe new Street Rod drag bikes made their debut at the NHRA Summernationals at Englishtown, N.J. in June, and the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines Pro Stock Motorcycle drag racing team has worked through the past three NHRA events to dial in the performance of the bikes.

The team’s competition motorcycles 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.

“It means a lot or me to get the first win on the Street Rod,” said Krawiec. “The transition to a new racing motorcycle is a challenge because we have no data history on the bikes. In addition to the three races, we’ve done 25 to 30 runs of testing outside of competition, and today all that work paid off for us. These new Street Rods are a joy to ride down the track.”

The win was the second of the season in three final-round appearances by Krawiec, a three-time Pro Stock Motorcycle world champion, and the 38th win of his career.

Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines rider Andrew Hines qualified the team’s other Street Rod drag bike in sixth position with a best ET of 7.193 seconds. Hines won in the first round on Sunday but lost in the second round of eliminations.

After seven of 16 Pro Stock Motorcycle events on the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, Krawiec is in second place with 584 points. Hines is sixth with 403 points.

The Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines Pro Stock Motorcycle drag racing team will be back in action July 28-30 at the Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, Calif.

Press Release: In preparation for the Burt Munro 50th anniversary commemorative run, Indian Motorcycle has set three new land speed records, according to the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA).

“When you’re breaking records during test runs, you know your machine is on point. Our team of engineers has done an incredible job on the Spirit of Munro commemorative Scout.” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Product Development for Indian Motorcycle. “Running within a different class has allowed Lee to truly honor his great uncle Burt. As Burt’s record still stands, Lee now joins Burt within the record book.”

First among the three Indian riders was Chet Michaelson, engine calibration technician at Indian Motorcycle. In the M-PG (Modified-Pushrod Gasoline) 2000cc class, riding a 2015 Indian Chief Classic, Chet eclipsed the record of 151 MPH with a speed of 154.132 MPH.

The second Indian rider was Lee Munro – aboard the Spirit of Munro 50th anniversary 2017 Indian Scout. Competing in the MPS-G (Modified Partial Streamliner) 1350cc class, Lee needed to exceed 167 MPH for a new record.  After completing his rookie runs during the May meet at El Mirage, this was the first chance to let the bike loose and explore its potential.  Lee recorded a speed of 186.681 MPH, a new record and the Indian team was two for two.

Millennials Are Negatively Impacting Motorcycling
U.S. motorcycle sales for Harley-Davidson, which represents about half of America’s big-bike market, were down 3.9% last year, and investment management firm Alliance Bernstein recently downgraded the Motor Company’s rating while citing the millennial generation as a key contributor in the brand’s downturn.

“Our data suggests the younger Gen Y population is adopting motorcycling at a far lower rate than prior generations,” AB analyst David Beckel told AOL’s Business Insider.  “Gen Y’s are aging into the important ‘pre-family’ cohort of riders and Boomers are increasingly handing over their keys to the smaller Gen X population.”

Millennials have surpassed Baby Boomers in numbers to become the largest generation pool in the United States, and these 18 to 35-year-olds grew up during a recession, which has impacted their spending habits.

“I think we have got a very significant psychological scar from this great recession,” according to Morgan Stanley analyst Kimberly Greenberger.  “One in every five households at the time were severely negatively impacted by that event.  And, if you think about the children in that house and how the length and depth of that recession really impacted people, I think you have an entire generation with permanently changed spending habits.”

Bike-To-Vehicle (B2V) Technology To Prevent Motorcycle Accidents
Drivers involved in an accident with a motorcycle often claim they didn’t see the bike.  Their smaller size, quickness and maneuverability makes motorcycles more difficult to identify in traffic.  Autotalks, the world leader in V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication solutions, is launching its bike-to-vehicle (B2V) solution, a technology for the prevention of motorcycle accidents.  The solution is based on the B2X (Bike-to-Everything) chipset developed by the Israeli company.

Research conducted by Bosch, a leading global supplier of technology and services, finds that motorcycle-to-car communication could prevent almost one third of motorcycle related accidents, which has encouraged the German company to develop what they call a “digital protective shield” for riders.  Digital visibility would warn the driver of a car about a motorcycle’s close presence, even when it’s not visible to the human eye.

The goal of the new technology is to prevent accidents from occurring, by providing warning notices on dashboards.  The data would be exchanged by vehicle transmitters through public WLAN and ITS-G5.  Potential hazards and nearby motorcycles would then show up on satellite navigation, including direction of travel, position, speed, acceleration, and vehicle type.

Advantages of the Autotalks’ B2V solution include simple integration, low power consumption, the smallest form factor, highest range of operating temperature and smallest physical size, which results in its resistance to the strong vibration and challenging environmental conditions of motorcycles.

Oregon Enacts R-O-W Law To Protect Motorcyclists
A “Right-of-Way” or R-O-W law has been enacted in Oregon, as House Bill 2598 was signed by Governor Kate Brown on June 20, 2017.  The bill also known as the “Milkman Mike Act” or the “Driver Responsibility Bill” will become law on January 1, 2018 and expands the offense of vehicular assault to include contact with motorcycle, motorcycle operator or motorcycle passenger that causes physical injury.

“This means that if a reckless driver injures a motorcycle rider or their passenger, the driver can be charged with vehicular assault and will be a Class A Misdemeanor,” reports the Oregon Confederation of Clubs.  The punishment can be doing time up to one year in prison and a maximum fine up to a $6,250.

“This is a great win for Oregon riders!!,” states the Oregon COC on their website (www.oregoncoc.org).  “Now we have something that has some teeth in it to punish drivers who are determined to be ‘reckless’.  We have had too many brothers and sisters run down by car drivers getting a ticket for nominal money or no ticket at all.  At best they get a slight bump in their insurance rates.  And in the case of no ticket, their insurance company never really has a clue they have a high risk client on their hands.

“All it took was a sharp attorney (Oregon A.I.M. Attorney Christopher Slater) to do a very simple thing.  He had the great idea to look to see if there is existing legislation.  He found legislation that covered bicyclists and pedestrians (ORS 811.060).  From there it was easy to add a few words…’motorcycle rider and passenger.’  It was so simple it was brilliant.  Much thanks to Christopher and his efforts.  Many thanks to BikePac of Oregon and ABATE of Oregon who also worked hard to make this bill a reality.

“And may Milkman Mike rest in peace forever.  This legislation is something he worked hard to achieve for many years.  He was unable to see it done due to a health issue and we lost him several years ago.  Mike was constantly working within the motorcycle rights community.  He also worked as the coordinator for the Coalition of Independent Riders (COIR).  He spent a great amount of time adding non affiliated and independent riders to his communication roster.”

North Carolina To Provide Driver Instruction On Law Enforcement Stops
Similar to a measure recently adopted in Louisiana to teach new licensees how to interact with police during traffic stops, House Bill 21 “Driver Instruction/Law Enforcement Stops” has been approved unanimously by the North Carolina legislature and signed into law by Governor Roy Cooper on July 12, 2017.

HB 21 provides that “The Division, in consultation with the State Highway Patrol, the North Carolina Sheriff’s Association, and the North Carolina Association of Chiefs of Police, shall include in the driver license handbook a description of law enforcement procedures during traffic stops and the actions that a motorist should take during a traffic stop, including appropriate interactions with law enforcement officers.”

Ohio ‘Dead Red’ Law Amended For Bicycles Only
During a lame-duck legislative session ending last December, the Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill 154, commonly referred to as a “Dead Red” law, allowing all vehicles and bicycles to treat a malfunctioning traffic signal as a stop sign and to proceed through a red light after a reasonable time has elapsed, as long as the intersection is clear and you must yield to oncoming traffic with the right of way.  Signed by the governor, the new law was to take effect in March, but an amendment was introduced and fast-tracked as an emergency measure to remove all motor vehicles (cars, trucks and motorcycles) from the law, and House Bill 9 amended the red light section to apply to bicycles only.

Introducing The Scout Bobber

By | New Product News | No Comments
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

Scout BobberIntroducing The Scout Bobber

Strip it down. That was the inspiration Indian Motorcycle used when developing the latest model in its iconic Scout lineup, the new Indian Scout Bobber. A low slung, blacked- out, minimalist motorcycle that proves less is definitely more.  The new muscular Scout represents a core passion of motorcyclists – connecting to the road without a need for anything unnecessary. It’s a tangible means of escape from a life that is so easily bogged down by commitments and a boatload of unnecessary “stuff.”

The Scout Bobber is our most raw and mean machine to date, and the ultimate in the celebration of what motorcycling is about – a powerful engine, two wheels, and no plan of where to go,” said Reid Wilson, Marketing Director – Indian Motorcycle. “It’s an incredibly fun motorcycle that delivers a ton of attitude, along with a ton of power.”

The newest member of the Scout family pays homage to the mean, stripped-down builds of America’s post-war past. With its tracker handlebars and pegs moved 1.5” closer to the rider, the Scout Bobber delivers a more aggressive riding position so the rider can tear through the urban streets with ease. Its knobby tires and blacked-out wheels keep the rider grounded, while a low-slung profile and 1” lowered rear suspension deliver unfiltered feedback from every inch of blacktop.

The Scout Bobber features a black headlight nacelle, minimal engine covers, bar-end mirrors and vented exhaust shields. A black gauge face on its instrument panel and black exhaust further adds to its blacked-out styling. The new block letter logo on the tank compliments the muscular look of the bike.
Chopped fenders front and rear and a new two-tone genuine leather bobber seat enhance the minimalistic styling. New rear LED lights with integrated stop, turn, and tail signals keep unnecessary parts to a minimum. Add the Scout Bobber’s raw styling to an American V-Twin engine with 100 horsepower and this motorcycle quickly becomes more of a tool than an extravagance, enabling the rider to fully embrace the thrill of twisting the throttle and enjoying the journey rather than the destination. The new Scout Bobber will be available at dealers in the U.S. and Canada starting in September. Five colors, including Thunder Black, Star Silver Smoke, Bronze Smoke, Indian Motorcycle Red, and Thunder Black Smoke with ABS, are available with prices starting from $11,499 to $12,499. Pre-orders are available at dealers to make sure you can be the first to get the newest member of the Scout family.

Scout Bobber Key Features:

Scout BobberLow-Slung Aggressive Profile
The Scout Bobber’s raw, mean and aggressive styling is heightened by chopped fenders front and rear, a 1” slammed rear suspension and knobby tires. Its bar-end mirrors can be dropped down for an even more lean and low look. The stripped-down bike features new LED rear signals with integrated stop, turn and tail lights and a side-mounted license plate* to keep unnecessary parts to a minimum. A new two-tone genuine leather bobber seat completes the minimalistic styling. * US model only

2018-Scout-Bobber-12Aggressive Riding Position
With foot pegs moved 1.5” closer to the rider and tracker handlebars that move the rider’s torso forward, the Scout Bobber delivers an aggressive riding position so the rider can tear through the urban streets with ease. A new cartridge fork front suspension ensures a more smooth and compliant ride.

2018-Scout-Bobber-03Blacked-Out Styling
Premium blacked-out styling runs throughout the bike. The exhaust, frame, handlebars, mirrors, turn signals, cast aluminum wheels, primary and clutch covers are all blacked-out to give the bike a mean look. A new black gauge face on the instrument panel completes the sinister look.

Scout BobberMinimalistic Styling
To Enhance The Minimalistic And Mechanical Design, The Scout Bobber Features Slotted Exhaust Shields And A Slotted Belt Guard, Along With A Smaller Ignition And Thermostat Cover Between The Engine. Muscular Performance The Indian Scout Bobber packs a 100-horsepower liquid cooled V-Twin engine for head snapping acceleration. With its tracker handlebars, more aggressive knobby tires, lowered rear suspension, and new cartridge front fork suspension, handling on the Scout Bobber is sporty and firm.

InkCarey Hart Gets Tattooed w/ Ink from Indian Motorcycle

Motorcycles are in his blood. To prove it in grand fashion, self-described rebel and third generation motorcycle rider, Carey Hart used a unique ink to permanently inscribe his son’s name on his neck.

Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, has created the world’s first tattoo ink composed of the carbon from freestyle motocross icon Carey Hart’s modified Indian Scout. Artists & Co-Founder of Nocturnal Ink, Franco Vescovi, made the ink by carefully extracting a sample of tire rubber obtained from a burnout Hart performed on his bike. To ensure safety, toxins were removed and the carbon was sterilized before Carey’s son’s name, Jamison, was tattoo on his neck. As a result, Carey Hart became the first known reception of a tattoo from their motorcycle. Ink

The Indian Motorcycle Ink will be used exclusively at Vescovi’s Vatican Studios in Lake Forest, CA and at four Hart & Huntington Tattoo shops in Las Vegas, Orlando, Niagara Falls and Nashville beginning July 11th until they run out, and the ink is gone forever.

IndianMotorcycleInkHero1[7]“Since 1901, Indian Motorcycle has been a trailblazer, establishing a wide range of ‘firsts’ in manufacturing, racing or other legendary motorcycling achievements, and this is another example of Indian doing something that’s never been done before,” said Reid Wilson, Director of Marketing for Indian. “Indian Motorcycle Ink embodies our value of leading, rather than following, to blaze entirely new trails where others have never ventured.”  IndianMotorcycleInk7[7]

A leading online retailer for LED lights—has recently added new LED headlight conversion kits to their extensive line of motorcycle bulbs. These 9007 and 9005 LED headlights come with glass sleeves and adhesive film for changing color temperature. The bulbs also feature 3rd generation cooling technology. They have external drivers instead of short-lived fans or bulky braided heat sinks. This allows for a longer-lasting, more compact bulb. Each CAN Bus compatible bulb emits 1,700 lumens of natural white illumination but can emit amber or cool white light by using the sleeve and one of the optional film choices. The LED array in each bulb is designed to mimic the filament in halogen bulbs—creating a closely matched beam style. Headlight conversion kits include 1 LED headlight bulb, 1 adapter plug with driver, 1 glass sleeve, 4 cool white and amber film sleeve covers, and mounting accessories.

Indian Motorcycle Racing Secures Ninth Win & 23rd Podium With First & Third-Place Finish At Rolling Wheels Half-Mile

Jared Mees Captures First Career In-Season Grand Slam & Reclaims Points Lead Over Rival & Fellow ‘Wrecking Crew’ Teammate, Bryan Smith 

Press Release: Indian Motorcycle Racing and the Scout FTR750 captured its ninth win of the American Flat Track season at the Rolling Wheels Half-Mile. Indian Wrecking Crew riders Jared Mees and Brad Baker finished first and third, respectively, tallying 23 of 30 podiums for the Scout FTR750 in 2017. Mees’ victory reclaimed the points lead over on-track rival and fellow Wrecking Crew teammate Bryan Smith, as the two continue to exchange leads throughout the season.

Mees and his Scout FTR750 outraced the entire field and passed the checkered flag nearly five seconds before the second-place finisher. With his fifth win of the season, Mees recorded his first career in-season Grand Slam, winning a TT, Short Track, Half-Mile and Mile, an accomplishment only three others have achieved in the history of the sport.

“It felt good to get my fifth win of the season at the Rolling Hills Half-Mile and take back the points lead,” said Mees. “Just over halfway through the season and already scoring a Grand Slam truly showcases how the Indian Scout FTR750 performs on all track types.”

Through 10 races this season Mees and Smith own nine of the first-place finishes. The two Wrecking Crew riders have been battling for the top points position all season long. They have leap-frogged each other the last three races since being tied in total points following the Red Mile. Mees currently sits eight points ahead of Smith, 202 to 194. While Baker earned his seventh podium of the season and remains third in total points with 149.

“Not only is our team extremely talented, but fiercely competitive – just look at Jared and Bryan exchanging points lead,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Product Development for Indian Motorcycle. “Jared came back following the Lima Half-Mile with a performance of the season and secured the rare in-season Grand Slam. Both Bryan and Brad will be looking to knock him off at the end of the month in Calistoga. It’s great competition within the team and great fun.” 

Indian Motorcycle Racing, backed by Allstate Insurance, will look to continue its incredible run as American Flat Track heads to the Calistoga Half-Mile at Calistoga Speedway in California on July 29.
