Muscle Up. S&S Big Bore Kits Just Got Bigger. Now In 98” And 107” Sizes.

98-107When it comes to big bore kits, the bigger the better. That’s the idea behind S&S Cycle’s 98” and 107” bolt-in big bore kits. S&S has offered 97” and 106” kits for a while, but these new kits are bigger. Aside from the additional cubic inch of displacement, the new 98” and 107” kits are better for a couple of other reasons.

The pistons are one reason. Both the 98” pistons and the 107” pistons are made by CP Pistons, and feature pop-up domes to increase compression. The 98” piston has a 10cc pop-up and the 107” piston has a 3cc pop-up. S&S increased the squeeze a little because most performance cams just work better with a bit more compression. But the pistons have another great feature. They can be used in stock cylinders that have been bored out to the required 3.937” bore size. That could save you some money. Continue reading ‘Muscle Up. S&S Big Bore Kits Just Got Bigger. Now In 98” And 107” Sizes.’

The Inspiring Story Behind The Sturgis Rally Deserves To Be made Into A Major Documentary Film. Please Help.

I-Am-Sturgis1The film makers encourage everyone to pledge at least $5 to help produce a new Motorcycle movie about Sturgis named “I AM STURGIS”. In hopes of galvanizing viewers to donate on any level to their Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds to produce this new Film, a free on-line screening of “WHY We RIDE” is available for 7 Days.

I-Am-Sturgis2“We don’t want to stop with just one movie. We want to continue to inspire more people, and that’s why we want to make “I AM STURGIS,” says James Walker, producer of “WHY WE RIDE”. “This is a movement now, and we want it to flourish. Sturgis is the entire motorcycle microcosm–it’s got everything: the camaraderie of the tribe, the visceral power of the bikes, the cacophony of humans and machines coming together, communing, riding, bonding. We want to show this world to people, because the instinct behind it, the gathering and the sharing, the competition and the rush–it’s universal. This isn’t just about being a motorcyclist; it’s about what drives us as people. All we ask is that everyone who has seen “WHY WE RIDE” or who view it for free on our site over the next week– to please donate to the “I AM STURGIS” Kickstarter campaign. If everyone gives even $5, it will allow us to continue telling these inspiring stories about our motorcycle culture.”

Response to the”I AM STURGIS” crowd-funding drive has been strong among the professional motorcycling community. South Dakota Tourism, City of Sturgis®, Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally, Harley-Davidson, Sturgis Motorcycle Museum, The Buffalo Chip Campground, Law Tigers, Uhl Studios, Michael Lichter Photography, Sedlak Studios, Hot Leathers, Bonnier Corporation, UBM Advanstar Progressive International Motorcycle Shows, J&P Cycles and Whitewood Campground and Event Center are just a few of the motorcycling business interests that have committed support to “I AM STURGIS.” With 19 days remaining in the campaign, Walker and company hope for a final push from individual motorcycling enthusiasts and Why We Ride fans to get them to their goal. The filmmakers believe in their fans and hope the 7-day free screening of “WHY WE RIDE” will serve as a gesture of goodwill and inspiration.

VictoryElectric1Victory Motorcycles is announcing their intention to race at the iconic International Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) event on a prototype Victory electric race motorcycle piloted by William Dunlop of the legendary Dunlop dynasty and by Lee Johnston known in the racing world as “General Lee”. Victory Racing will compete in the Isle of Man TT electric class, marking the first time that Victory Motorcycles has entered a professional motorcycle-racing event in Europe and raced an electric motorcycle. Parker, the world’s leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, is providing the race-proven, high performance GVM PMAC motors for both machines.

Sharpening The Ride, Handling And Comfort Of A Harley Dyna

1DynaPremium-Ride-Emulsion-Shocks.22DynaPremium-Ride-Emulsion-ShocksHarley-Davidson is introducing Premium Ride Emulsion Shocks and a Premium Ride Single Cartridge Fork Kit for the Dyna model. They were developed to work together, engineered and track-tested at the Harley-Davidson Arizona Proving Grounds

Premium Ride Emulsion Shocks (P/N 54000066, $599.95) are nitrogen gas-charged to resist oil aeration and work with the internal valve stack to provide superior compression and rebound damping control. The 36mm pistons and low-viscosity high-performance oil allow these shocks to react quickly to small bumps and keep the tires in contact with the road surface for confident, controlled handling. A wider pre-load range offers more load capacity than Original Equipment shocks.

Use the locking threaded adjustment to fine-tune spring preload to the riding situation – from a solo back-road blitz to a fully-loaded two-up freeway tour. Urethane bumpers cushion bottoming under load. These shocks are finished with black-anodized billet top caps and black progressively-wound springs. The kit includes a left and right shock and a preload adjustment spanner. It fits 2006-later Dyna models (except Switchback™ and 2007-‘08 CVO™ Fat Bob® models).

Motojournalist Horst Rosler rode a Victory Magnum from Frankfurt, Germany to the event. And to torture me (because he knows I would have liked to ride with him on these south of France roads that I love and know so well) he sent me a few pictures that I share with you. Legends below.

Zero Motorcycles Confirms Returns To AIMExpo. Will Offer Demo Rides of the Latest Electric Motorcycles.

Zero2Following a successful first year involvement, the American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) and Zero Motorcycles, currently the world’s leading manufacturer of electric motorcycles, have announced that the pioneering OEM will return for its second year of exhibiting this October 15-18 at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center (OCCC).

AIMExpo played a huge role in getting us off to a great start in 2015,” said Scot Harden, VP Global Marketing at Zero Motorcycles. “In just two short years, AIMExpo has become a major player on motorcycling’s global event calendar and clearly established itself as the most important show to attend in North America.

Ken’s Factory Very Special BMW K1600 GTL

1BMW-Ignite-Straight-Six-project-291bisBMW-Ignite-Straight-Six-project-29 2BMW-Ignite-Straight-Six-project-274BMW-Ignite-Straight-Six-project-27Two very special custom motorcycles were created as part of a BMW Motorrad “Ignite Straight Six” contest between 2 Japanese builders, Keiji Kawakita from Hot-Dock Custom-Cycles and Ken Nagai from Ken’s Factory. Although both customs have a lot of merit, the one created by Ken’s Factory that I feature here has my preference. The reason? The BMW K 1600 GTL with its 1,649cc straight-six cylinder engine is a quite complicated machine and Ken Nagai succeeds in making his makeover as good as a naked motorcycle built from the ground up.

5BMW-Ignite-Straight-Six-project-276BMW-Ignite-Straight-Six-project-31Constraints imposed by BMW Motored were to keep the factory frame (could be modified) and of course the engine. Doesn’t make the customization process as simple as it may sounds. Turning the high-class BMW K1600 GTL touring bike with ergonomics designed for long trips into a Digger required a lot of studying and planning. Not doubt that the K1600 in-line 6-cylinder engine is the most efficient and compact motor ever installed in a production motorcycle series. So, why not make it serve a machine with a completely different personality, one more in phase with what the Ken’s Factory likes to build when dealing with a V-Twin motor.

Voters unanimously decided to make the Buffalo Chip into South Dakota’s newest and USA most motorcycle-friendly town. The city of Sturgis and some neighbors of the Chip oppose the Buffalo Chip being incorporated.

Owner of the Buffalo Chip Rod Woodruff said “I’m bonded to the Sturgis area. We are part of this whole thing together. I want to work with the city of Sturgis to keep the rally here and not at Exit 55” in reference to the I90 exit 55 in Rapid City where the Harley-Davidson Official Dealer has attracted many rally vendors formely setup in or around Sturgis.
