Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

Increased rear light output and elegant styling are just two of the attention-getting features packed into the new L.E.D. Rear Fender Strip Lights from Kuryakyn. Designed for ’14-’16 Indian Motorcycle models (except Scouts), these attractive and practical accents provide additional run-brake lighting to markedly enhance the motorcycle’s visibility from behind.

Three red lenses per accent coordinate with the stock taillight lens, and each contain multiple ultra-bright L.E.D.s that function as added brake and full-time running lights. Made from durable chrome-plated ABS with polycarbonate lenses, installation is hassle-free with plug-&-play wiring and high-strength 3M VHB application.

Fits: ’14-’16 Indian Chief, Chieftain, Roadmaster and Springfield models

Essential Styling For Softail Slim

The Harley Davidson Softail Slim, with its minimalistic design and engine focus, is already a stand-out. Add some attitude to yours with Klock Werks new, direct bolt on, Softail Slim Front and Rear Fenders.
        The Softail Slim fits a wide range of riders, and Klock Werks can appreciate the want to kustomize yours to make a statement. Choose from two rear fender lengths that are both longer than stock to give a stretched look. Pre-drilled to use stock mounting locations and hardware, there is no better way to achieve kustom so easily. Choose the “Smooth” style for a super clean back fender, or “Frenched” with a recessed license plate pocket that provides a flush finish when used with a Klock Werks License Plate Frame. The standard length is longer than stock, and the extended version is another 4” longer than that. You pick the amount of stretch you want.

        Klock Werks also offers the new “Knuckler” style stamped steel front fender for your Softail Slim (will also fit Heritage, Fatboys and any other FLST model except Springer). This direct bolt-on replacement fender uses stock mounting locations and hardware too. Paint it to match, bolt it on, and you have a kustom-looking Softail Slim that isn’t like everyone elses, and this level of kustom is easy enough to achieve in your own garage. 

        Painters love Klock Werks sheetmetal – one coat of fill primer and they are ready to paint (which saves YOU money at the shop.). All Klock Werks Fenders are stamped from 14 gauge steel using precision deep-draw stamping technology that ensures a consistently smooth and flawless finish that minimizes bodywork. They are then e-coated to prevent rust and corrosion. Precision laser cut technology ensures accurate fitment. 
        Klock Werks always seeks to make parts that make sense, fit right out of the box, look great, and are made of the best quality, right here in the USA. Fenders are available online at getklocked.com or through your local Drag Specialties dealer.

National Cycle Announces Three New VStream Windscreens For The Harley-Davidson FLTR Road Glide

By | New Product News | No Comments
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

Harley-Davidson’s newly redesigned FLTR Road Glide represents the latest in touring comfort, and the triple-vented shark nose fairing is perfectly complemented in both form and function by National Cycle’s VStream Windscreens.
       VStream’s cutting-edge aeroacoustic contour features a wider profile at the top, which pushes turbulent, noisy airflow to the side and away from the rider’s helmet. This extra width creates a quiet pocket of air with significantly reduced helmet buffeting for a calmer and quieter ride compared to the stock screen.

       VStream windscreens are made from tough 4.5mm Quantum hardcoated polycarbonate. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques combined with this high quality material provide outstanding clarity and strength characteristics unmatched by any windscreen maker worldwide. Our exclusive Quantum hardcoating makes the VStream 30x more scratch resistant than acrylic, and 10x more than standard hardcoated polycarbonate — ensuring that your windscreen will stay clear and strong for many years to come. 
National Cycle’s Polycarbonate Windscreens Are Protected By a 
3-Year Warranty Against Breakage and Are Proudly Made in the U.S.A.
       Available in three configurations: the Low Windscreen with a Dark Tint (Part #N20433), the Touring Windscreen with a Light Tint (Part # N20432), and the Tall Touring Windscreen with No Tint (#N20431).

Victory Motorcycles Factory Race Team Launches Into 2nd Season Of Drag Competition

Matt & Angie Smith prepare Victory Gunner for NHRA Mellow Yellow Pro Stock Motorcycle Drag Racing Series
Victory Motorcycles Factory Race Team is ready to light ‘em up again in 2016, its second year participating in one of the fastest, most intense sports on the planet: the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Mellow Yellow Pro Stock Motorcycle Drag Racing Series.
        Showcasing Victory’s commitment to deliver Modern American Muscle, the Victory Motorcycles Factory Race Team is comprised of NHRA power-couple Matt and Angie Smith, who are back racing their tricked-out, custom Victory Gunner drag bikes in this series fit for adrenaline junkies.

        Matt boasts two World Champion titles and seventeen career wins, ending the 2015 season – his first with Victory Motorcycles Factory Race Team – 4th in points with three runner-up finishes as well as a No. 1 qualifier. Angie, Matt’s wife and Victory Motorcycles Factory Race Team partner, last year blasted down the strip to three quarterfinal appearances.
        Both riders say they got more comfortable aboard the Victory Gunners as their inaugural year atop the bikes progressed, and say off-season gains during testing should see them much improved in 2016.

        “We did really well in testing and we know we have great horsepower,” Angie says of their off-season work in Bradenton, FL. “When you do really well in testing, that makes you want to go to the first race even more just to see how you stack up with everybody. We’re very eager to get there.”
        The NHRA Mellow Yellow Pro Stock Motorcycle Drag Racing Series, which kicked off March 17-20 at the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville, Fla., is scheduled to make 16 stops in 2016. Race attendees can meet the fan-friendly Smiths and their Victory Gunner drag bikes in person, as NHRA racing allows fans to get close to the action to experience the raw power of the Victory Racing Team in the heat of competition.
        “The excitement that is created at an NHRA event is matched by the energy that Victory brings to every one of its motorcycles,” said Steve Menneto, President of Motorcycles for Polaris. “With these Gunners, and these riders, we’ve got the muscle to make history happen.”
        After stops in Gainesville, FL, Charlotte, N.C., Atlanta, GA, Englishtown, NJ, Norwalk, OH, Chicago, IL, Denver, CO, Sonoma, CA, Brainerd, MN, Indianapolis, IN, Charlotte, SC, St. Louis, MO, Reading, PA, Dallas, TX and Las Vegas, NV, the NHRA Mellow Yellow Pro Stock Motorcycle Drag Racing Series season ends Nov. 10-13 at the Auto Club NHRA Finals in Pomona, Calif.

How Officers Get Away With False Arrest

By | Biker's Rights | No Comments
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

The latitude given officers in cases of false arrest is often troubling. Take the case of Adam Miller, a motorcyclist from Richland, Washington, that was recently arrested based on an officer’s false identification of Miller. An officer was looking for a black motorcycle that he claims he had clocked at 126mph multiple times throughout the day. Miller was riding a red motorcycle and exiting a parking lot when he was detained and then arrested by a Washington State Patrol trooper. Although Miller was found not guilty based on this obvious detail in traffic court, what recourse does Miller have to recover costs related to his seemingly false arrest?
