Sturgis Bound? Take a Pit Stop and Get Klocked

By | Events | No Comments

10_presturgThere are just over 860,000 residents in South Dakota, and last year, during the 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the number of people in the state nearly doubled. The rally brought in close to 750,000 people, setting a record. Mitchell, home of Klock Werks, is 300 miles east of Sturgis, but being right off of Interstate 90, the streets of Mitchell are just as flooded with revved engines! And this year, bikers will have yet another milestone to attend before the rally, the 10th Annual Pre-Sturgis Party at Klock Werks, and everyone is invited!

Eleven years ago, Laura joined Team Klock Werks to help frieds with what was then a small motorcycle shop. The guys were building bikes into the wee hours of the morning, and while Laura left the garage to run some errands, she noticed bikers all over town, at hotels, in parking lots, just hanging out. They had stopped for the night to take a break from the highway.

“When I got back to the shop, I told Brian (Klock) there were bikers everywhere, and we should invite them to all hang out here,” Laura Klock said.

Busy with deadline, Brian declined, but Laura was inspired to bring everyone together. Always family oriented, Laura made the hang-out happen the following year in 2006, and the Pre-Sturgis Party was born!  Read More

Drag_Ad_seth_vertical2The 2-into-1 pipe XL riders were waiting for

Press Release: Almost from the minute we unleashed a full stainless steel 2-into-1 power pipe for the Dyna, the Road Rage III, Sportster riders have been blowing up the social media sites and blogs asking what about us! Well, they have their answer now. The full stainless steel XL application Bassani 2-into-1 is here. It’s brand-new, and will be available through your local Drag Specialties dealer1FXRSS_670px_

It’s no surprise that we are  quick to follow up that Dyna-application Road Rage III with its Sportster counterpart. That stainless steel 2-into-1 for the Dynas was an immediate hit. This Sportster version, with direct-fit applications for 1986 through present-year models with mid-controls, is sure to follow suit. It’s also no surprise that R&D so closely followed the look, sound, style and design of that Dyna pipe with this Sportster version. Totally in-tune with the current all-business/take-no-prisoners trend sweeping the XL world this Bassani 2-into-1 not only has that stainless-steel construction, its pipes, especially the front head pipe, are tucked in to nicely hug the contours of the engine for a great fit and lots of ground clearance. And those pipes, 1 ¾-inch leading into a 2 ¼-inch collector, are Sportster tuned. It all finishes off with an upsweep for the reverse-cone megaphone muffler for even more ground clearance. Partial heat shields are included and that megaphone muffler features a removable baffle and end cap. Read More

Mustang Wide Touring Seat for the Victory Vision

By | New Product News | No Comments

Mustang seat for Victory Vision on bike 6-16Mustang’s “Vision of Comfort” offers significant improvements over the stock seat on Victory’s luxury touring model.

Their new one-piece touring seat widened the bucket radius of both the front and rear seating areas while slightly lowering them as well. Not only does Mustang’s more comfortable design let the driver sit back into the 17.5” wide seat but the front nose area has been designed slightly lower to eliminate that “crowded” feeling.  The passenger is fully supported in a 15.5” wide bucket that is contoured for comfort.

Mustang incorporated heating components for high/low dual control by driver and passenger. The new seat fits all Victory Vision 2008-16 models and features detailed stitching accents to further enhance the Vision’s striking lines. For all day riding support for the driver, choose the optional driver backrest that is easily removable, fully adjustable, folds for storage and quickly installs into the receiver which is built into Mustang’s seat.  The seat cover material perfectly matches the stock passenger backrest on the trunk.

B99_20160611_CD__DSC_3789Victory Racing’s Empulse RR & Project 156 Take The Checkered Flag Atop Pikes Peak

Victory riders Don Canet & Jeremy Toye accelerated away from the competition to win their respective classes in the 100th anniversary of the Race to the Clouds

Showcasing its Modern American Muscle powered both by gas and electric motors, Victory Motorcycles is proud to announce that Victory Racing’s electric Empulse RR ridden by Cycle World’s Road Test Editor Don Canet and gas-powered Project 156 piloted by Jeremy Toye accelerated away from the competition to win their respective classes at the 2016 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) and take second and third overall.”

 B99_20160612_JMH_JHP_9207“The hair-raising moment of my run came in a fast 100-mph sweeper approaching Upper Gravel Pit, which is well up the course. I slithered across an oil stain at the apex, then again crossing over the double yellow centerline. In a heart-stopping moment I ran out of road and was off on the dirt shoulder at high speed. Luck was on my side as I stood the bike upright and coasted along looking for the best spot to cut back onto the stepped pavement edge. The excursion completely killed my drive through the following flat-out right and straight that follows,” Canet says about his winning run on the Empulse RR in the PPC-Electric Motorcycle Class. “My hope for a King of the Mountain top time evaporated, however, as the downtime allowed the road to dry prior to the Heavyweight class contenders making their run, there’s almost no way to fully prepare for the track conditions you’ll see in the early morning runs.” Read More
