Calistoga Half-Mile kicks off California showdown
for AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship title contenders

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 24, 2014) - All that's left is California.

It may sound like a song title, but for the four riders still alive in the AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship chase, those words mean so much more than any lyric.

After 14 rounds, Bryan Smith, Jared Mees, Jake Johnson and Kenny Coolbeth have emerged as the final four riders with a shot at the Expert title with two rounds, Calistoga and Pomona, left on the schedule.

The championship hunt heats up this weekend with the Calistoga Half-Mile at Calistoga Speedway in California's Napa Valley. The season finale will take place 450 miles south down the Golden Coast with the Flat Track Finals at the LA County Fairplex Oct. 11.
Right now, however, the riders are focused on Calistoga.

On-track action begins at 3 p.m. local time (6 p.m. ET) with Opening Ceremonies scheduled for 6:30 p.m. (9:30 p.m. ET). The Pro Singles main is set for 9 p.m. (midnight ET) and the Expert main is scheduled to go green at 9:30 p.m. (12:30 a.m. ET). Every moment can be watched live in high definition at FansChoice.tv.

The Dash For Cash is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. 11:10 p.m. ET) and has an additional $5,000 up for grabs thanks to Specialty Fabrications.

Smith, pilot of the No. 42 Villa Esparza/Crosley Radio Kawasaki, holds a nine-point lead over Mees and his No. 9 Rogers Racing Harley-Davidson. Ramspur Winery rider Johnson and his No. 5 machine are 14 points back of Mees. Coolbeth, on the No. 2 Zanotti Racing Harley-Davidson, is 53 points back, and would need some help in the form of bad luck from the top three to rise to the top of the standings.

The beauty of this year's title chase is that no one rider has the hot hand as the season winds down. The last four races have seen four different winners, although Smith has taken command by virtue of a victory at Colonial Downs in Virginia followed by a runner-up showing at the Springfield Mile in Illinois. The Michigan rider is tied with Coolbeth for the most wins with four.

Mees has been impressive for his consistency. Outside a 12th place showing in the second Daytona race to open the season, Mees, who, like his rival hails from Michigan, hasn't finished worse than fifth. One thing Mees does have in his corner over Smith is championship-winning experience. While Smith is searching for his first ever overall GNC title, Mees got the job done and claimed the No. 1 plate in 2012.

Johnson, too, knows how it's done, having won back-to-back titles in 2010 and 2011. His consistency has also been impressive as the Pennsylvanian is the only Expert to finish inside the top 10 in every race. He is, however, still searching for his first victory of 2014 despite six podiums.

Coolbeth's shot at a title might be slim, but the Connecticut rider is certainly a favorite to take a couple of checkered flags to round out his up-and-down season. Coolbeth has proven he's still one of the best riders in the AMA Pro Flat Track paddock by winning four races this year, including one half-mile. He was dominating the Hagerstown Half-Mile in July, but a mechanical issue ended his race prematurely. Had his bike held on and Coolbeth taken the win in Maryland instead of Smith, the title chase would have a dramatically different look.

Just because only four riders are still mathematically alive to claim the No. 1 plate, that doesn't mean the rest of the Expert field won't be contesting with the same fervor it has all season.
Henry Wiles on the No. 17 Don's Kawasaki entry is trying to keep his spot in the top 5. Anchored by wins in both TT (Tourist Trophy) events this year, Wiles is riding a five-race top 10 streak. The Michigan rider holds an 11-point advantage for fifth over defending GNC champion Brad Baker on the No. 1 Factory Harley-Davidson.

Baker, a Washington native, has been quietly consistent during the last two thirds of the season, finishing inside the top 10 in every race since the Lima Half-Mile in June.

Sammy Halbert, riding the No. 7 South East Harley-Davidson, and Brandon Robinson on the No. 44 USC Kawasaki sit seventh and eighth, respectively in points and five points from each other.
Stevie Bonsey sits ninth, another five points back of Robinson. The Californian has put his No. 80 Zanotti Racing Harley-Davidson in every main event this season, making him one of just four riders who can make that claim.

Jake Shoemaker rounds out the top 10 heading into California. Thanks to two-straight top five finishes, including a runner-up showing in Virginia, the Glenmore, Pa., native has put himself and his No. 55 Hot Shot Motors Kawasaki in a spot to finish the season on a high note.

A Friend in Need - Back on Two Wheels

Hello my industry friends,

Brandon Hochman is like many other motorcyclists. Into all sorts of bikes. The guy has a mind like many motorcyclists – and when he lost his dog it broke his heart. So he decided to do something about it. Combining his passion for riding and marketing savvy from years of snowboard competition (Brandon was in the first 2 X-Games), entrepreneurial spirit (as the owner of PETaPOTTY) and sense of adventure he struck out on a customized Sportbike to spread the word to chip your pets. His pain became his message to encouraged dog owners to chip and register their best friends, so they would not suffer the same fate he did. ride4humanity.com is the result.


After a successful ride from Los Angeles to New York City, Brandon was set for the return trip and more weeks of adventure on two wheels. Unfortunately, his custom 2006 Suzuki GSXR was stolen a scant three hours before his slated departure. Brandon has holed up in Brooklyn for three weeks hoping that the unique machine would pop up, and despite some attention from the local police department, there are no strong leads.

Indian Motorcycle is proud to loan Brandon a new 2015 Indian Roadmaster to head back home. Brandon will depart on Monday the 29th, and will travel in style and comfort on the most luxurious motorcycle to bear the Indian brand.

Brandon has been leaning on the kindness of friends, pet lovers and strangers as he crosses the country to spread the word by couch surfing and staying in guest rooms. You can follow his adventure via - Facebook.com/ride4

Please find attached a press release from Brandon, as well as images of his stolen motorcycle. Individuals with leads or information on the custom 2012 Suzuki GSXR should contact the NYPD 90th Pct. – Detective unit at (718) 963-5368  As a friend in the industry – I personally ask you to spread the word and help bust the scum-sucking punk thieves. 

Brandon has a unique story, and is available for interviews via brandonhochman@gmail.com. Thanks for your attention, and for helping tell one motorcyclists story. Have a great weekend – and chip your pet while you are at it! Unless it’s a goldfish, that would be overkill.

Harley-Davidson Demo Rides to be Featured at American International Motorcycle Expo

IRVINE, Calif. (September 18, 2014) – The American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) announced today that the Harley-Davidson Demo Fleet will be featured at the 2014 event, offering test rides of the legendary company’s 2015 models. Additionally, Orlando Harley-Davidson becomes the newest exhibitor to join AIMExpo, which will host nearly 500 powersports companies from around the world October 16-19 at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center (OCCC).

The presence of the Harley-Davidson brand at AIMExpo for the first time adds to the growing excitement surrounding the 2014 event, now less than a month away. The expansive AIMExpo Outdoors! area provides an ideal setting for Harley’s demo display, while Orlando Harley-Davidson will present its display on the main exhibitor floor, showcasing their 2015 motorcycles, plus the newest collection of Genuine Harley-Davidson Parts and Accessories.

Orlando Harley-Davidson

We’re looking forward to exhibiting at AIMExpo and hosting official Harley demo rides,” said Anne Deli, Owner of Orlando Harley-Davidson. “With three dealerships and four retail stores in the greater Orlando/Kissimmee area, it was important to us to take advantage of the AIMExpo platform to further connect with our existing and new customers. Harley-Davidson’s strategic vision is to expand its reach to new riders and AIMExpo enables us to help achieve that goal. Hosting the Motor Company’s demo event at AIMExpo makes perfect business sense for both us and the Harley brand.”

“The addition of Orlando Harley-Davidson and the Harley-Davidson Demo Fleet is significant to the continued growth of AIMExpo as we recognize the vital role the V-Twin segment plays in the vibrancy of the industry,” said Cinnamon Kernes, show director. “Presenting Harley-Davidson products at the show has been a priority for us so welcoming Orlando Harley-Davidson and the demo fleet is a key milestone in the continuing progression of AIMExpo.”

The inclusion of Orlando Harley-Davidson and the Harley-Davidson Demo Fleet is an example of how the industry continues to embrace the AIMExpo model.  Further evidence is the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which will recognize current Hall of Famer Willie G. Davidson, grandson of Harley-Davidson founder William A. Davidson, as an AMA Hall of Fame Legend. The well-known “Willie G.” is a third generation member of the Harley-Davidson empire and is responsible for many of the innovative designs that ushered in the brand’s new era of success.  The public is welcome at the induction ceremony scheduled for Friday, October 17 at 8pm with a VIP cocktail reception preceding the ceremony at 6pm.  Additional info can be found here.

More than 450 exhibitors have committed for 2014 and more are being added daily. Exhibit space allocation is ongoing as AIMExpo continues to cement its place within the powersports marketplace. Exhibitor numbers and interest continues to grow each day and companies looking to take advantage of the AIMExpo platform should contact an AIMExpo Account Manager toll free at 855-MCShows (855-627-4697).

Forecast for a Beautiful Ride!

Our Fifth Annual Fox Tail Ride is scheduled for the Third Saturday in September, and it looks like the day is going to be beautiful!

We're leaving Fox Creek at 1:00pm for our Fox Tail Ride through Grayson Highlands. Bring your cameras and Fox Creek Leather gear - September might be a little nippy in the higher elevations - and you can't go any higher in Virginia than Mt. Rogers. Current forecast is for the 70's in our mountains on Saturday.

After riding through some of the most scenic convoluted blacktop east of the Mississippi,* we'll all head back to Fox Creek for some food and fun. Relax at the pond, toss some horseshoes, play corn hole, bring a deck of cards, BYOB (please, please ride sober - we don't want you to be a statistic), bring a tent and just enjoy some southern hospitality.

We do have a request -- if you are planning to attend, please email us: rsvp@foxcreekleather.com with "We'll Be There" in the subject line. Let us know how many are coming and if you plan to camp at the pond. We just want to be sure to have enough vittles for everyone.

*It's always fun to watch tractor trailers that ignored the VDOT warning trying to back their way to where they started.

ARCH Motorcycle Company begins production of the highly anticipated KRGT-1
and is now accepting reservations KRGT-1

KRGT-1

LOS ANGELES, CALIF (September 12, 2014) – Founders Gard Hollinger and Keanu Reeves are proud to introduce the custom-production KRGT-1, ARCH Motorcycle Company’s versatile, performance-oriented, American V-twin with the perfect balance of performance and design. Manufactured exclusively in ARCH’s Los Angeles area factory, the KRGT-1 will be built to order with an initial offering price of $78,000. Production will be limited, making ownership a coveted experience.

When Reeves approached Hollinger at his motorcycle shop (LA County Choprods) 7 years ago, he was in search of a custom sissy bar for his near-stock V-twin cruiser. What followed was the idea to build an athletic, retro-modern custom motorcycle. That custom motorcycle became the prototype that inspired the formation of the Arch Motorcycle Company.

Once the decision was made to bring their concept to the public, Hollinger committed to the lengthy process of vetting his design to meet even higher aesthetic, performance, production and reliability standards. This three-year quest allowed time to perfect the ARCH philosophy, “Connecting The Art and The Ride.”

The KRGT-1 represents the culmination of years of design and R&D focused on producing a category-defying American motorcycle with real world rideability to match the meticulous craftsmanship. Its streamlined retro-modern styling brings the contours of the past into the present. The bike showcases over 200 parts created at the Arch production facility, each bike requiring 300-plus machine-hours using state-of-the-art CNC and water-jet machinery.  Dozens of other proprietary parts are supplied by premium vendor/partners who share the same demanding standards.

What started in 2007 as a simple request for a sissy bar has evolved into the launch of the KRGT-1, a true production model uniting refreshed style with modern performance technology. The KRGT-1 is Presence in Motion.

The archmotorcycle.com website has been updated with additional information including photos, videos and specifications.  The current delivery schedule is approximately 90 days from receipt of deposit.  For inquiries visit www.archmotorcycle.com or phone (310) 675-2724 ext. #1.

Reposted from Motocross Performance

Text by Danny Brault

This past weekend I was fortunate to partake in one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had on a motorcycle, and probably one of the best group off-road motorcycle rides in Canada and North America. It wasn’t riding on a real supercross track or sharing a ride with some great like Ricky Carmichael or Jean-Sebastien Roy (although, JSR was at this event), but rather it was a 1,000 kilometre, on-road/ off-road, 2-day rally race across Northern Quebec. Something completely new to me, but change is good, right?

The event is called Orange Crush Adventure Rally and it’s been going on every year September since 2012, with KTM Canada acting as title sponsor, seeing as the company offers a full line-up of bikes capable of handling a course like Orange Crush. Marc Fontaine is the man behind the event and his goal is to replicate a Dakar Rally feel, offering a high-mile rally race across paved roads, gravel roads, fire roads, single-track trail and everything in between, along with various ‘Special Tests’ for those wishing to show off their hardcore adventure riding skills and compete for best times.

Orange Crush is a race but it’s more about fun, some laughs and sharing your motorcycle passion with others. There was a total of 150 riders broken up into teams of three, and each rider’s bike was equipped with a Road/ Route Book. To win the event, it’s not about being the fastest, but rather you and your team must have excellent navigation skills as well, because the winning team is based on whoever is “closest to the pin” when it comes to recording the actual mileage of the race. Riders are monitored by GPS so it’s pretty accurate to know how many kms each one puts on during Orange Crush. Let’s say the race is 900 kms long; the goal is to end with your dial closest to 900 as possible.

The event begins with a lap around the SRA Motocross Track in Terrebonne, Quebec (approx 30 minutes north of Montreal) and then riders travel north 500 kms to the almost extinct mining town of Parent. Everyone stays over in Parent for dinner and drinks, and then the green flag waves again at 6am on Saturday with all 150 riders racing south 400 kms to La Tuque. Things wrap up with a huge dinner, drinks, live music, and awards ceremony at the ski hill in La Tuque. The town of La Tuque loves motorsports and welcomes Orange Crush and its participants with open arms. No doubt, though, as the event takes over three to four hotels, restaurants, bars, and injects good money into the local economy. (La Tuque is 3.5 hours Northeast of Montreal.)

The longest I’ve ever ridden a motocross bike for is, maybe, 2 hours. But this past Friday and Saturday, I somehow held on for 9 hours each day, manhandling this monster KTM Adventure 1190 (pics below), which actually feels incredibly light on the trail and road, and features some high tech gagdgetry like ABS, Traction Control and electronic suspension to automatically adjust to an individual’s weight. Oh, and it boasts an 1190cc, two cylinder four-stroke engine with 150 HP. It’s ready to race.

With my WASPcam mounted, I snapped a few pics along my journey through the Quebec wilderness, and also have some video footage to share as well. Here’s a visual of what you can expect at an Orange Crush Adventure Rally Race. If you’re interested in signing up for Orange Crush 2015, contact Marc Fontaine by clicking here.

A BIG thanks to everyone at KTM Canada (Warren, Chris, JSR, Florian, Gerald), event promoter Marc Fontaine and his entire crew for putting together such a well organized and entertaining motorcycle event. It was a blast!

Orange Crush Adventure begins! The two-day, dual-sport motorcycle rally began Friday morning at SRA Motocross track in Quebec, just north of Montreal. After signing in, riders geared up and completed one lap of the racetrack for the first ‘Special Test’ of the event.

 

fontaine

Marc Fontaine has a long history around motorcycles and event promotion. Since 2012, Fontaine, KTM and other sponsors have worked hard to deliver one of North America’s best adventure rally events. 200 to 1200cc, you’ll find all kinds of bikes and brands at Orange Crush. Everyone is welcome (you just need a motorcycle license and street legal bike).

 

camping

Some hardcore adventure riders actually camped out at SRA the night before Day 1 of Orange Crush.

 

media bikes

Spoiled Brats: A handful of Canadian journalists were given the opportunity to experience Orange Crush, with KTM outfitting each of us with a bike and gear, and Dave Renouf leading us safely through the entire course. My ride was the orange 1190 Adventure in the middle here. You would not believe how smooth and confident you can ride this bike on some extreme off-road conditions. It’s 450 lbs but handles almost as well as an XC in the woods.

 

150 riders

Since 2012, Orange Crush has enjoyed more than 100 riders and, in 2014, it was capped off at 150 due to limited motel space on night one in Parent.

Mad Max? That’s who I felt like in some sections of Orange Crush. This photo was taken on Day 2 when we were traveling south from Parent to La Tuque. I think we were about 175 kms from La Tuque at this point. These desolate Quebec logging roads have riders clipping along at speeds of 100 – 160 km/h. (To be honest, I was a little uncomfortable and nervous at times!)

There was no shortage of amazing views during Orange Crush! This is when we took a break for a sandwich and a cold drink before riding for another 300 kms to La Tuque.

Great guy and solid rider!

As long as you have a valid motorcycle license and street legal machine, you’re welcome to race Orange Crush! We had Japanese, Euro and German machines in the mix.

Along the 900 km journey, Fontaine and his team laid out some ‘Special Tests’, which were timed but optional for Orange Crush riders. This test was on Day 2; our group opted out of it. A little too steep and sandy. With 400 kms to go, I really needed to conserve every bit of energy just to finish the loop. Kudos to the guys who had the balls to go for it!

A view of La Tuque. This is where things wrapped up on Day 2 of Orange Crush, with some riders going for one last ‘adventure’ up the skil hill. I did go for this Special Test, but after two turns, wish I hadn’t. I’m still out of breath!

What Is a Hoverbike?

By

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's... a... flying motorcycle? Yesterday that may have sounded unbelievable and ridiculous. But today, you better believe it. Flying cars have long since been a dream for those who love technology and futurist dreamers alike. But engineer Chris Malloy just took it to the next level.

In 2011 Malloy and his company, Malloy Aeronautics, developed an original vehicle they called a Hoverbike. To the untrained eye it just looks like a motorcycle with wheels that are parallel to the ground rather than perpendicular. And although they look like wheels they are actually power rotors.

Hoverbike

The original Hoverbike could travel as fast as 173 mph and up to 10,000 feet above the ground. But it also presented some safety concerns. The biggest one being that it was unable to take sharp turns without losing the pilot in the process.

Among that and other reasons, Malloy Aeronautics has decided to improve the hoverbike and is currently working on a newer quadcopter model. It will have dual rotors on both the front and back of the vehicle, giving it a total of 4 rotors and significant stability, so losing the pilot is no longer an issue.

An interesting part of this project is that its funding comes from Kickstarter which connects dreamers to people that have money. Kickstarter.com basically just provides a platform for people with developed business plans to plead their case and anyone who really believes in it has a chance to pledge money towards developing the business plan.

One way creators often bring in investors is by promising them some type of incentive once the project takes off. In Chris Malloy's case, he has come up with a fully functioning model of the quadcopter that is 1/3 the size that the final product will be. This is available to investors after pledging a certain amount.

And luckily, kickstarter.com was so helpful that Malloy Aeronautics not only met, but exceeded their goal and now have more than enough funding to help finish the manned quadcopter design. The smaller remote controlled, or "drone," models are fully functioning and have already been seen in flight.

The drones were originally made to test out their plans for the full size, manned hoverbike. They ended up working so well that they decided to mass produce and sell them to assist people in doing an endless list of tasks and to bring in more funds to go towards finishing the full size vehicle.

You may be interested to know that the hoverbike was not originally designed with the intent of just looking cool and futuristic. Chris Malloy actually had quite practical intentions. According to their website ( http://www.hover-bike.com ), their goal is simply to produce a safe and reliable helicopter.

They go more in depth saying that "the Hoverbike has been designed from the very beginning to replace conventional helicopters in everyday one man operational areas like surveying, mainly for the obvious fact that it is inefficient and dangerous to place regular helicopters in harsh working environments."

"Also from a practical commercial position in which bringing a cheaper, better product will not only take over the existing market but can open it up to far more new customers who before could not afford the upfront costs of a typical helicopter and the very expensive and often unlooked maintenance costs."

The bike operates at a safe, low level height and can easily replace previous one man helicopters for professional tasks. It is purposed to complete jobs such as search and rescue, precision farming, first responder emergency services and cargo shipping of up to 265lbs.

Malloy Aeronautics claims that they aren't really doing anything new. After all they did not develop any component or system that has not been designed and thoroughly tested before. The only new thing they are doing is combining existing systems. Either way many find it truly innovative, even amazing.

Although we don't work with hoverbikes, call Bellmawr Collision Center today for any of your other auto body needs at 856-939-4000

The American Dream Project

“The American Dream Project” – A new docu-series from Happy Marshall Productions is searching for the ‘great’ in America and what the American dream means today. If the American dream exists and where, this 5,000 mile cross-country journey will reveal a hidden and new vision of America.

 


NEW YORK: Announcing a unique new docu-series that’s filming in September, The American Dream Project” is going to put a lens on the rarely-traversed areas of these United States to find hopeful Americans who still believe in this country and everything it stands for. British born, Seven year NY resident James Marshall fantasized of life in America for as long as he could remember. In recent years, James has noticed America is getting a bad rap, especially from it's own citizens. An inherent idealist and optimist, James is determined to find real patriots who share his passion for this place he now calls home. On a journey, crisscrossing the amber waves of grain and the purple mountain majesties on his Indian motorcycle, James and his friend Todd, the adventurous American, are determined to disprove the cynics and make people more hopeful again.

In this original, authentic, and beautifully filmed docu-series, James and Todd are setting out on the archetypical American road trip, but with a specific purpose: to find the good in America, and to understand what the American dream means today. With only $250 dollars for food and accommodation, the two men will visit communities across the country and stay with the people they meet on their journey. After a big push on social media, James and Todd will find the unsung heroes one tweet at a time. While working for their keep, they'll meet with everyday Americans and find out what’s going on in both the big cities and the one- horse towns. They'll talk to scientists who are curing cancer, get a wet shave with a WWII veteran who has wisdom to share, work with community leaders who focus on at risk youth, and sit with local politicians who sometimes struggle to be heard. It’s a unique chance to hear from the Americans who aren’t in the news, but have a voice and should be celebrated. They will find the extraordinary in communities that are bouncing back and uniting in the face of difficult times.
