Saturday night at the Costa Mesa Speedway was the Sidecar National Championship and Harley Nite Finals. It was a very entertaining night to say the least! Most of the runs were neck to neck with an occasional crash. We were able to spot out a few Harley “Race” bikes equipped with our suspension. Even Roland Sands was there, racing on his PS equipped Blackline with our 422 Series Shocks! Check out the pictures below. For more information on Costa Mesa Speedway check out their website.

Motoquest Industry Invitational Adventure Tour

Posted by on Sep 18, 2013 in Events | Comments Off on Motoquest Industry Invitational Adventure Tour

For the past four years we have attended the Motoquest Industry Invitational Adventure Tour in Alaska. Motoquest rents bikes and offers “adventure moto tours” in Alaska and many other spots around the globe. A majority of the MotoQuest fleet is equipped with our suspension products like our 465 Series Shocks and Monotube Fork Cartridge Kits.  We like to take this time to test in the extremes of the Alaskan wilderness and improve our product. Here are some killer shots from the MotoQuest resident photographer Jim Kohl.

BUB Speed Trials

The BUB Speed Trials at the Bonneville Salt Flats have been a humble host as a proving ground for many years. For most motor-heads setting a world record is a lifetime achievement and personal goal. Something inside us makes us want more, strive for more and achieve for excellence. The experiences and stories along the way are all part of life’s gifts. A chance to see one of the world’s wonders and be a part of something special was epic. If given the chance, don’t turn it down!

For us, the Utah pilgrimage from So. California is an estimated ten hour drive with gas and coffee stops along the way. Allotted with only an eight hour stay, the drive seemed questionable at first but definitely worth while in the end. The surreal settings and atmosphere make for an epic experience every gear-head must experience once in their lifetime. Permission to ride a motorcycle at top speed in a safe environment without intervention is an amazing opportunity to prove what you and your machine can do when given optimal circumstances.

The event is a AMA sanctioned event with official world record achievements being recorded every year. Experienced racers mingle with rookies on the flats; some racers for the first time and some for the last time. Much can be learned from the seasoned racers and most are proud to share what they have learned over the years. Check out some of the Progressive Suspension equipped bikes we managed to catch during our short visit on the flats.
