Meet the Stars


Motorcycle master Paul Teutul Jr. has been molding metal into shape since the age of 12, when he began his apprenticeship at his father’s steel business. He’s widely recognized as the chief designer and fabricator of some of the world’s most famous motorcycles, as featured in Discovery’s hit television series “American Chopper.”
 

Paul Teutul Jr. 

One of NASCAR's most well-known and charismatic personalities, Rusty Wallace, Jr. was the 1984 NASCAR Winston Cup Rookie of the Year and the 1989 Winston Cup champion. He  is a member of four of stock car racing's major halls of fame: the NASCAR Hall of Fame (2013), the International Motorsports Hall of Fame (2013), the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America (2014) and the National Motorsports Press Association Hall of Fame (2010).

One of the most famous names in drag racing, Don “The Snake” Prudhomme, will also be in attendance at the lunch. Prudhomme won four consecutive NHRA series titles, won the prestigious U.S. Nationals seven times, was the first Funny Car driver to break the 250-mph mark (250.00 mph), was the first to post an elapsed time under 5.20 seconds (5.193), became the first driver to win seven of eight national events in one season (1976), was the first NHRA Winston World Champion (1975), and became the first driver to win the U.S. Nationals and Winternationals in the same season (1965). At age 51, he became the third Top Fuel driver to pass the 300-mph mark (301.60) in 1993.

Walker “The Legend” Evans is one of the most accomplished competitors in the sport of off-road racing. Throughout his 30-year racing career, he has racked up 142 victories and 21 championship titles to his name, including winning the Baja 1000 nine times, the first in history to win that grueling race overall in a truck. He’s also won races like the Mint 400, the Baja 500, the Parker 400 and the Fireworks 250.

Legacy Collection by Kuryakyn

KURYAKYN LEGACY COLLECTION FOR INDIAN SCOUTS
Classic chrome styling for a classic V-twin platform.

(See the video above)
 
 Throughout its history, the Indian Scout has been one of the most versatile V-twin platforms. The new Kuryakyn Legacy collection celebrates its rich heritage by combining bold lines, dimensional depth, and traditional fit and finish for a classically balanced look.
 

Designed with the Scout’s timeless styling in mind, the Legacy collection features a full line of coordinating chrome engine and frame covers, body accents, and select hand and foot control components. Stylistic elements include stepped borders along with centralized speedlines that capture and reflect light to provide depth for a clean, understated custom appearance.
 

 
A variety of Legacy covers are available as direct replacements for the stock pulley cover, stator and clutch covers, as well as to clean up and conceal triple tree wiring, and front or rear swingarm bolts. Additionally, the Legacy Horn Cover includes a relocation bracket that eliminates the hassle of removing the horn to access the oil filter for servicing.
 

 
Legacy accents target areas that enhance the Scout’s front and rear fenders, lower forks, mid-frame, and radiator shroud. Also included in the collection is the Legacy Shift Linkage, as well as brake and clutch levers for ’15-’16 Scouts (fitment for ’17-’18 models is expected soon).

HARLEY-DAVIDSON® AND JEEP RENEW PARTNERSHIP FOR 2018

HARLEY-DAVIDSON® AND JEEP® BRAND RENEW PARTNERSHIP ONCE AGAIN FOR 2018 AND LOOK TO BUILD ON SUCCESS  
Two iconic brands renew and extend partnership following four successful years
The Jeep® brand to expand its experiential presence at three major European Harley-Davidson events, including the 115th Anniversary in Prague
Exciting driving experiences will be available across the entire Jeep line-up
Limited offer of preferential purchase rates on new Jeep models for H.O.G. members
CUSTOM COUSINS: New contest will see H.O.G. and J.O.G. members crown the best customised Wrangler vehicles
Harley-Davidson® and the Jeep® brand have renewed and strengthened their European partnership for the fifth consecutive year.

Under the arrangement, the Jeep brand will remain a key partner and official sponsor of major Harley-Davidson events and rallies throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Brands don’t come much more iconic than either Harley-Davidson or Jeep. Each boasts a long and fabled history played out on the world stage. And today both produce vehicles that encapsulate the very essence of freedom and the spirit of adventure.

Building on the success of the last four years, Jeep will have a larger presence at three major Harley-Davidson European events – Euro Festival in Saint-Tropez, France (7-10 June), the 115th Anniversary of Harley-Davidson in Prague, Czech Republic (5-8 July) and European Bike Week™ in Faaker See, Austria (4-9 September).


Jeep will also attend other Harley-Davidson events in the year including Africa Bike Week™ in South Africa (26-29 April), the Tuscany Rally in Italy (25-27 May) and the Thunder in The Glens event in Aviemore, Scotland (24-27 August). In addition, Jeep will showcase vehicles at local events across the EMEA region.


Event visitors will be given the opportunity to get up close and personal – and test drive – the entire Jeep line-up . Special guest at each major event will be one of the new products that will enhance the Jeep range this year, including the all-new Wrangler. All will be available for exciting test drives on and off-road. The full 2018 range of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, including the all-new Softail® models, will be on display and available for test ride at all events.
There will also be a strong Jeep dealer presence to handle enquiries, a terrace ‘chill out’ area, an exciting zip line experience and a Mopar® expo area where the public will be able to admire the latest Jeep models. This will include the iconic Wrangler equipped with Mopar® Original Accessories created to enhance its look, functionality and off-road capabilities. Here visitors will also receive information on Mopar® products and services, as well as on the endless possibilities of customizing their Jeep vehicles.


Visitors can ‘shop-till-they-drop’ and will be able to purchase Jeep and Harley-Davidson Merchandise from the official outlet stores on site, while H.O.G members can also take advantage of a limited offer with preferential rates to purchase new Jeep vehicles. All events will be complemented by strong digital, social media and print exposure for the Jeep brand across all of Harley-Davidson’s channels.


The reinforced relationship builds on the core values the two brands share: freedom, adventure, and a passion for the open road, with all of the experiences it brings. Both produce vehicles that encapsulate the very essence of freedom and the spirit of adventure and allow customers to live out their individuality in a strong and distinctive way. Owners of the two brands also share something very special – a sense of belonging that often translates into highly customised vehicles that reflect their owners' creativity and personality.
To further underline the expertise of both brands for personalisation, a special promotion called CUSTOM COUSINS has been launched and will feature on J.O.G. and H.O.G. social channels. The contest will see the two communities engaged in submitting entries and voting for the best customised Wranglers.


The contest will crown three ‘best of the best’ Wrangler personalization’s, with owners winning a trip to the Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary celebrations in Prague to take part in the on-site expo activities. Among H.O.G. members that have been voting in the contest, 10 winners will be awarded tickets to the Jeep® Owners Group’s most important annual event - Camp Jeep – taking place at the Red Bull Ring in Austria on 13-15 July.

KURYAKYN’S FAITH AHLERS SETS SIGHTS ON WORLD RECORD


KURYAKYN’S FAITH AHLERS SETS SIGHTS ON WORLD RECORD

2018 Women’s World Record Race: Kickstands Up May 6

SOMERSET, WIS, APRIL 25 — On Sunday, May 6, four women hailing from four different countries will embark on an epic journey to rewrite the record books. The 2018 Women’s World Record Race, organized by Urs “Grisu Grizzly” Pedraita and the Grizzly Race Team, will decide which rider claims the Guinness World Record for the fastest woman to circumnavigate the globe by motorcycle. Representing the United States is Kuryakyn dealer-direct representative and longtime powersports industry veteran, Faith Ahlers.
The four riders will begin the endurance race simultaneously in their respective homeland, setting out on a grueling 15,374-mile route inspired by Pedraita’s 2014 Guinness World Record for the fastest circumnavigation by motorcycle that took only 16 days, 12 hours and 19 minutes. The women will navigate some of the most remote areas on earth without assistance from a support team or chase vehicle.
The route winds through a total of 16 different countries, with planned stops at various checkpoints including Ace Café locations in Orlando, Fla., Barcelona, Spain, London, England, Luzern, Switzerland, and Lahti, Finland. Additional notable locales on the ride include the Tail of the Dragon, Paris, Gotthard Pass in the Swiss Alps, Moscow, and Seoul, South Korea, among others. Although the route is the same, each participant will compete on one of four different motorcycles selected for the event. Ahlers will be riding an Indian Chieftain Dark Horse, Swiss rider Isa Müller on a BMW S 1000R, Austrian rider Anita Fastl aboard a Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L, and Russian rider Tatiana Igushina on a Ducati Scrambler 1100.
“I’m humbled to represent the U.S.A. on the 2018 Women’s World Record Race,” said Ahlers. “It’s an incredible honor to be selected as one of the four participants for this once-in-a-lifetime experience that not only promotes the female riding community, but also unites riders around the world. Our collective goal with this ride is to inspire new generations of women riders from all walks of life to step out of their comfort zone and follow their dreams.”

In conjunction with International Female Ride Day, a Women’s World Record Ride launch party will be held in honor of Ahlers at Bison Thunder Motorcycle in St. Michael, Minn., on Saturday, May 5. Kuryakyn and Bison Thunder welcome riders from around the Twin Cities area and beyond for a day full of entertainment, storewide sales, food vendors and more. Attendees are also invited to return to the dealership early Sunday morning for the official send-off celebration at 7 a.m. CST, where they are encouraged to ride with Ahlers on the first leg of her race.
