3Swiss endurance rider on his final of six continents in 100-day ride challenge

After traveling 29,888 miles over 46 days and 15 hours, Swiss endurance rider Urs “Grizzly” Pedraita is well on his way to achieving his quest to set a new world record by circumnavigating six continents in less than 100 riding days aboard his Victory Motorcycles Cross Country Tour.

Grizzly recently departed North Cape (Nordkapp) Norway after completing the European leg of his journey, and is on his way across Russia to the eastern city of Vladivostok. 6

Grizzly rode away from Daytona International Speedway on March 11 flanked by hundreds of owners of Victory motorcycles who joined him to ride one lap of the Daytona 200 road course and escort him out of town for the first part of his journey.

From Daytona Beach, Fla., he traveled 3,971 miles in six days and 14 hours to complete the first leg of the ride in Panama City, Panama. He then continued traveling south 6,269 miles for nine days and 23 hours to reach Ushuaia, Argentina, at the tip of South America. From there, he returned 2,088 miles to Santiago, Chile, loaded his bike onto a plane and transferred to Australia, where he spent six days and five hours riding 4,604 miles west across the continent from Sydney to Perth.

  • IOM TT RacesElectric Victory RR hits 158.3mph through the Sulby speed trap
  • Third fastest electric motorcycle during first practice
  • “It’s a great step up,” says William Dunlop

Victory Racing has successfully run its new Victory RR bike in the first of three practice sessions ahead of the TT Zero race, beating the fastest lap speed set by the team last year.

William Dunlop rode one lap of the course, achieving an average speed of 112.85mph – some 8.7mph faster than his 104.18mph lap last year. His laptime was 20:03:630 – just three seconds over the 20 minute mark.

William was 18mph faster through the Sulby speed trap compared to last year – hitting 158.3mph.

And the Victory RR bike was the fastest machine through the Grandstand at the end of the lap hitting 142.52mph compared to John McGuiness’ 125.90mph.

Much of the increase in speed has come from the upgraded Parker GVM electric motor coupled to a more advanced battery, developed by Brammo.

Hells Angels Charity for Kids Blockaded by Indiana Police

Indiana-HA-Charity-Featured-Image-60-officers-620x329Police agencies in Porter County, Indiana are knowingly and publicly endorsing an unconstitutional policy of motorcycle profiling and discrimination targeting motorcycle club members and other motorcyclists attempting to participate in charitable fundraising events.

On May 11th, 60 officers from 11 different agencies began a premeditated campaign of profiling stops targeting participants in a charity event promoted by the Hells Angels for no other reason than being associated with a motorcycle club. No specific or particular evidence existed to justify this “saturation patrol” which has resulted in 1st Amendment violations and gross mismanagement of public resources.

Disturbingly, law enforcement has made it clear that the patrols will continue.  In addition to immediate action in the form of demands to cease this unconstitutional campaign of profiling, legislation at both at the state and federal level is needed to stop this epidemic impacting motorcyclists from Indiana to both coasts of America.

Two couples were riding together in a car on a canyon road when they hit a bro and his ol’ lady on a Hog, and both of them went sailing over the side of a cliff. The next thing they knew, all of them were standing in front of the Pearly Gates while Saint Peter busily consulted his records.

“Hmm,” mumbled Saint Peter as he studied the first guy in line. “Tell me why you think I should admit you,” he said.

“Well, I’ve been a good provider,” the man said hopefully, “and I saw to it that all of my children got a good education.” Read More
