By | New Product News | No Comments

Quest Compass w_shadowA Modern Popular Convenience You Want

Press Release: Quest Compass does not rely on traditional magnetic feedback to display direction. It uses state of the art GPS technology to gather data from orbiting satellites – processes that information in nanoseconds and gives you a precise 8 point display of your current direction of travel. This technology makes it perfect for motorcycles and vehicles with radios and speakers that create magnetic fields interfering with traditional compasses.

  • Superior performance and unparalleled good looks are the hallmark of this gauge.
  • You can clearly see the super bright LED face in the day light as well as at night.

The Compact 1 ¾” diameter face matches Marlin’s popular line of high-end clocks and thermometers and the unit is water and shock resistant. A simple single button controls four levels of brightness including “off” and a system reset when held for ten seconds. Read More

NHRA Drag Racing

Ed Krawiec Defeats Andrew Hines in all-Harley Final Round

Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines racer Ed Krawiec swept the Pro Stock Motorcycle field at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals. Aboard a thundering Harley-Davidson V-Rod drag bike, Krawiec was the top qualifier for the event and then blasted through Sunday elimination rounds, defeating his Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines teammate, Andrew Hines, in an all-Harley-Davidson motorcycle final round.

“Any time I race Andrew in the final it’s fun because we can line up and know that the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle team has already won,” said Krawiec, who leads in Pro Stock Motorcycle points with three wins in four final-round appearances after five events this season. “As a team we had a great weekend. I set a quick qualifying time on Friday night when it was about 20 degrees cooler than it was Sunday, and we were able to adjust our tune-up and maintain that V-Rod motorcycle power through the weekend.”

Friday Funny

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

A biker went to the race track and noticed a priest making the sign of the cross over horse’s head. The horse went on to win the race. So the biker watched the priest and every time he made the sign, the biker would bet on the horse and the horse would win. By the time the last race came up the biker was ahead by $18,000. He bet the whole bundle on the horse he saw the priest approach. The starting gates opened, the horses were off, and the one he bet on took three steps and dropped dead. Finding the priest, the biker demanded, “Man, what the hell happened?”

The priest looked him over and replied, “You bikers just don’t know the difference between a blessing and last rites!”

The Sisters’ Ride will depart from Brooklyn, N.Y., on July 3, with official registration held at the Launch Party in Springfield, Mass., on Independence Day. On July 6, more than 100 female riders will begin their epic trek across the United States, arriving in San Francisco on July 23 for the Grand Finale celebration.

On the Trail RevA“For almost 40 years, Mustang has been proudly handcrafting seats in a renovated, historic mill building near Springfield,” said Mustang Director of Business Development Marilyn Simmons. “We are very excited that the Sisters’ Ride Launch Party is here in the original home of Indian Motorcycle. I remember how rare it was to see a fellow woman rider back in 1968 when I got my license, so I have the greatest respect for the accomplishments of the Van Buren sisters over a half-century earlier. I look forward to meeting the riders and giving them a great sendoff as they head out on their historic ride.”   Read More
