Indian Motorcycle Announces Winners in Its ‘Project Scout: Build a Legend’ Dealer Custom Program

By | General News | No Comments

Press Release: Celebrity Judging Panel and Fired Up Motorcycle Fans Turn Out for First-Ever, Global Indian Scout Custom Contest at Daytona Bike Week Party
Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, today proudly announced the winners in its inaugural ‘Project Scout: Build a Legend’ custom program. The program kicked off on November 30 and was open to Indian Motorcycle dealers around the world, giving their teams a global stage from which to showcase their design and customization talent. With minimal rules, dealers were free to customize a 2016 Indian Scout using any theme, style or budget they chose as long as it incorporated at least three genuine Indian Scout accessories from the current catalog of more than 200 items.
       In all 35 dealers participated in the contest worldwide, and on January 8 each of them submitted final photos of their custom creations. The final submissions were published and shared on Indian Motorcycle’s website and social media properties on January 18, and fans cast votes for their favorites up until February 19. On February 20 the top three finalists were announced, and each was provided an all-expense-paid trip to the 75th annual Daytona Bike Week for themselves plus a guest.

The three finalists based on fan voting were:

Passionate motorcycling enthusiasts have been drawn to the Indian Scout as the ideal platform for customizing for over 100 years because its powertrain, chassis and lines are nearly perfect right off the assembly line,” said Reid Wilson, Indian Motorcycle Marketing Director. “In fact, the historic 1920 Indian Scout that broke the under-1000cc land-speed record in 1967 at the Bonneville Salt Flats as famously portrayed in the motion picture ‘The World’s Fastest Indian’ was among the earliest custom Scouts. We salute the winners of the inaugural ‘Project Scout: Build a Legend’ program, recognizing that these beautiful custom Indian Scouts are now a part of the rich history and heritage of Indian Motorcycle.”

On March 8 at the historic Boot Hill Saloon in downtown Daytona Beach, hundreds of Bike Week attendees gathered to celebrate the creativity and fine craftsmanship of the three finalists. The judging panel included celebrity bike builder Roland Sands, prominent motorcycle blogger Cyril Huze, Marine veteran Sean Carroll, motorcycling luminary Jason Paul Michaels and his wife and co-founder of Standard Motorcycle Co., Leticia Cline.

Star Tron Improves Fuel Quality Year-Round

By | New Product News | No Comments

Press Release: Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment is a Multifunctional Fuel Treatment that Improves Fuel Quality for Maximum Engine Performance
Now that riding weather is back, it is time to focus on fuel issues. Fuel quality is the most important factor in making sure that all engines start easily, run smoothly and produce maximum horsepower and fuel economy. Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment‘s unique formula is the ideal way to improve the performance of motorcycles – and all other gas-powered engines. Star Tron utilizes a proprietary blend of enzymes in a fuel suspension. The formula does not contain any alcohol, oil or other emulsifiers. Alcohols and other emulsifying agents actually degrade the quality and combustibility of fuel; by reducing combustibility, performance is also reduced. 

       Unlike traditional fuel additives, Star Tron is a true multifunctional fuel treatment. The enzymes allow more oxygen to attach to hydrocarbon fuel molecules, resulting in a more complete burn of the fuel charge. This translates into maximum power, crisper throttle response and improved fuel economy. Star Tron helps restore much of the power and fuel economy lost in ethanol blended fuels as ethanol does not produce as much energy as gasoline. A more complete burn of the fuel charge also helps prevent the formation of performance-robbing carbon deposits and keeps engines running clean with significantly reduced emissions. If gum or other debris is already in the fuel or if carbon or varnish deposits are fouling the rings, carburetors or fuel injectors, Star Tron’s enzymes break apart the debris so that it can be eliminated while the engine operates.
       Because alcohol attracts water, moisture is another ethanol issue. Star Tron’s enzymes break apart clumps of water molecules into tiny submicron-sized droplets so they can be dispersed throughout the fuel to be safely eliminated while the engine is running. Beware of additives that claim to remove water or make it burn; neither is possible. Most of these products rely on alcohol or other emulsifiers that degrade fuel quality and can result in significant carbon deposit formation. 
       All fuel that is not used within 30 days or so needs to be stabilized, and especially ethanol-blended fuel. Ethanol and gasoline cannot form a chemical bond, which is why E10 fuel is formulated to be used within 30 days of blending. As fuel ages, it begins forming gums and other debris that clogs carburetors and injectors, making engines run rough or become difficult to start. The engines are fine – it is the fuel that is the problem.  Star Tron will maintain fuel chemistry for up to 2 years, making it ideal for gas-powered equipment that will be placed in seasonal storage.
       Used year-round, Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment keeps all engines starting easily and running smoothly. For more information, visit www.startron.com 

Buffalo Chip Challenge Students Score at Black Hills Motorcycle Show

By | General News | No Comments

Black Hills area high school students participating in the 2016 Buffalo Chip Challenge scored their first big win this weekend at the Black Hills Motorcycle Show. Just days after completing two world-class, custom baggers, the students unveiled the bikes at the Black Hills show and received two first place trophies. The students will now take the motorcycles on to compete at the prestigious Donnie Smith Bike and Car Show in St. Paul, Minn. on April 2 & 3. The program, developed by Sturgis Buffalo Chip president Rod Woodruff and coordinated by Keith Terry of Terry Components, was designed to prepare the next generation of American motorcycle experts and cultivate motorcycle industry economic development.  
       The 2016 Buffalo Chip Challenge participants had the opportunity to fully customize a 2016 Victory Cross Country and a 2015 Indian Chief Classic under the instruction of some of the industry’s most celebrated customizers. Randy Cramer of Dakota V-Twin and Chris Malo of Baggster provided hands-on instruction to students from start to finish to create signature builds that fit the style of their teams’ esteemed captains. Renowned builders Rusty Jones of Rusty Jones Customs and John Shope of Dirty Bird Concepts served as team captains and provided a great deal of influence on the look and style of each bike, with their extensive lines of custom body parts and components.

     The student-built custom Victory Cross Country took top honors, winning first place in the Full Custom Bagger – Victory class and the Indian Chief Classic took first place in the Full Custom Bagger – Indian class. The students competed against professional custom bike builders, which makes winning these awards an even more remarkable achievement.
        “The students are the big winners in the Buffalo Chip Challenge program,” says Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “They’ve spent countless hours after school and on weekends learning from the pros to build these magnificent bikes. I couldn’t be more proud to see them succeed and win such well-deserved awards.”

      The two award-winning custom motorcycles will be auctioned in support of the Buffalo Chip’s signature Legends Ride charity event on Deadwood’s Main Street on Monday, Aug. 8.
        The Buffalo Chip Challenge is a collaboration between the Sturgis Buffalo Chip, Terry Components, Dakota V-Twin, Baggster and a large group of industry-leading sponsors. This is the sixth consecutive year the Sturgis Buffalo Chip has led the regional program focused on American innovation and craftsmanship. 
        Many of the motorcycle industry’s top companies continue to supply world-class parts and services for the Buffalo Chip’s build program each year, recognizing its significance as part of the growth and success in American custom bike building. Special thanks to American Iron Magazine, Baggster, Dakota V-Twin, Dirty Bird Concepts, Hot Leathers, Indian Motorcycle Sturgis, Rusty Jones Customs, Terry Components, Arlen Ness Enterprises, Carl Brouhard Designs, CT Designs, Flat Earth Art, Hawg Halters, Inc., Jamie’s Repair, KewlMetal, Kreun Kustom, Legend Suspensions, Lloyd’z Motor Workz, MTX Audio, RC Components, Sturdevant’s Refinish Supply Center, Trask Performance, and Vee Rubber America for contributing to the program.

Fort Worth Officer Pepper Sprayed Bikers, is this Attempted Murder?

By | Biker's Rights | No Comments

Many are familiar with the recent video depicting a Fort Worth police officer, now placed on administrative leave, pepper spraying a pack of motorcycles as they ride by. The bikes are forced to veer into another lane attempting to avoid being sprayed. This is clearly a case of officer negligence and excessive use of force. But could this be considered deadly force or even attempted murder?  Pepper spraying moving motorcyclists on a roadway could easily lead to serious injury or death.  This is just another incident in a well-established pattern of evidence justifying a law addressing motorcycle profiling in Texas.

Utah Governor Signs Resolution for Bonneville Salt Flats

By | Racing News | No Comments

Racing advocates for the Bonneville Salt Flats received some welcome attention for their cause on Thursday, when Utah
       Gov. Gary Herbert signed a resolution urging the federal Bureau of Land Management to restore the Bonneville Flats International Speedway in Utah’s West Desert.
       “We want to make sure that up front everybody understands that this is more than just for racing,” Louise Noeth, an author, photographer and spokesman for the advocacy group, Save the Salt. “This is a national treasure for everyone to enjoy.”

       Speed Week racing events have been cancelled for two years in a row. Racers contend the salt crust’s shrinking and thinning from potash mining. They blame BLM mismanagement.
       But the agency and scientists say the problem’s more complex than mining, racing, geography or weather alone.
       Either way, Noeth says she’s happy to see the high-level attention the salt flats are getting — even if there’s no teeth in the resolution or funding.
       “Essentially what the land speed racing community got,” she says, “was a love letter from the people and the leadership and the administration of the state of Utah.”
       Noeth says the group wants to find a way to retire idle potash leases. Her group sees that as the best way to start reversing the ruin of the iconic and awe-inspiring resource.

Nebraska Bill To End Mandatory Helmet Law Fails

By | Biker's Rights | No Comments
Motorcyclists will go at least another year without the Nebraska wind in their hair as state senators continue to back the state’s mandatory helmet law.

       Senators rejected the bill, LB 900, Thursday by Sen. Dave Bloomfield of Hoskins that would have allowed motorcycle riders 21 and older to ride without a helmet.
       The proposal fell three votes short of the 33 required to end debate and force a vote.
