BMW K-Serie Benzine Dop


BMW K-Serie Benzine Dop, handgemaakt


Deze aluminium dop is “Italian made” en dat kun je ook wel zien. De afwerking is subliem en maakt je K-serie (denk aan de K75 of 100) tank helemaal af. Het is een kwestie van de adapter te plaatsen op de tank en de dop erop te schroeven. Een zeer snelle modificatie met veel impact.

Sturgis Resolution Will Not Affect Buffalo Chip Festival

Sturgis Rally Dates

The dates of an authentic rally tradition will continue unchanged in 2017 as the Sturgis Buffalo Chip will host headlining world-class concerts beginning the first Friday in August and end the second Saturday, Aug. 4-12. The Sturgis Resolution Will Not Affect Buffalo Chip Festival


The Sturgis City Council’s recent resolution to change the official dates of the rally makes those dates coincide with the Buffalo Chip’s traditional schedule. The Largest Music Festival in MotorcyclingTM has been promoted as a ten-day rally for the last 27 years. It is unnecessary for event attendees to change their plans this year. 



Past concerts at the Buffalo Chip have included superstars such as Aerosmith, Ozzy Osborne, Toby Keith, Kid Rock, Alice Cooper, Miranda Lambert and Willie Nelson. Although headlining concerts for 2017 have yet to be revealed, many of the destination’s other special events have already been confirmed. Celebrity bike builders and industry leaders will again gather at the Chip on Sunday, Aug. 6 to celebrate the opening of the Buffalo Chip’s ninth annual Motorcycles as Art Exhibition curated by Michael Lichter, a world-class motorcycle exhibit open free to the public. The Buffalo Chip’s star-studded Legends Ride will celebrate 10 years and again be held on Monday, Aug. 7, Biker Belles will meet and ride on Tuesday, Aug. 8, and the 26th annual Freedom Celebration and Ride honoring American veterans will take place on Thursday, Aug. 10.  


New for 2017, AMA Pro Racing is bringing the American Flat Track Series to the Chip’s amphitheater. The inaugural race on the Buffalo Chip’s TT track is scheduled to take place on Sunday, Aug. 6. The Buffalo Chip Street Drag Invitational with Crazy John and hooligan flat track races are slated to take over the amphitheater on Wednesday, Aug. 9. 


Passes for the 2017 music and motorcycle festival are on sale and may be purchased at www.BuffaloChip.com.


  

2016 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Summary

2016 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Summary
2016 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Summary

As expected, the 2016 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally was not nearly as large as the 75th anniversary in 2015.  With all data now in, the official estimated attendance was 448,000.  
The official attendance estimate for the 75th Rally was 739,000.  


The attendance number is calculated based on several data points including tons of garbage hauled within the City, Department of Transportation vehicles counts, Mount Rushmore traffic counts, SD Sales tax collections, Sanitation fees collected and Main Street photo counts.  All of these numbers were down from 2015 and many were also equal to or slightly down from the 2014 Rally.



October 26, 2016 – 
By Christina Steele -photo's by www.madnessphotography.nl G-Rat and Onno "Berserk" Wieringa

Despite the lower number of attendees, the 2016 Rally saw growth in a number of areas.  For the first time ever, nearly all major motorcycle manufacturers were represented, with many unveiling their newest products and offering demo rides to the public.  The Rally continues to attract a growing number of international attendees with many foreign film crews spending the week recording footage for documentaries as well as independent films that will reach an even greater audience. Those in attendance also enjoyed the ability to travel to various Rally venues using traffic routes originally set up for the large crowds in 2015.




Those attending the 76th Rally reported having a great experience.  When asked why they were here, Brittania Day responded "Because there is no place like the Black Hills. The beauty of the area is like no other place I've ever seen. Not to mention the welcoming environment, the locals are more often than not very friendly and helpful. After multiple years of attending and getting married at (in 2008) the Rally my husband and I have decided that sometime in the near future we would love to move here. Sturgis and the rest of the Black Hills is one of my all-time favorite places to be."  Kurt Schmidt responded "Every hard surface in the hills was covered with bikes. Loved every second of them. We rode about 250 miles a day out there for 4 to 5 days. There's no place on earth as great as the black hills."

Social media continues to play a major role in publicizing the Rally and the entire region as a tourist destination.  From July 22 until August 18, the Sturgis Rally Facebook page reached 2,951,000 people and Twitter reached 432,000 people.  These numbers surpassed the social media activity in 2015.  SturgisMotorcycleRally.com had 1.1 million visitors during the past year. The ability to showcase the Black Hills to the world has been a driving factor in the promotion of the Rally as well as South Dakota in general as a year around travel destination.

Moving forward, City staff and the Sturgis City Council are already working hard on the 2017 Rally.   Those arriving in 2017 will enjoy new entertainment, larger bike shows, charity rides and more.  Also new in 2017 will be the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful new Sturgis Main Street.

MICHELIN ONDERSCHEIDEN

MICHELIN ONDERSCHEIDEN VOOR HAAR ACTIVITEITEN  IN DE STRIJD TEGEN KLIMAATVERANDERINGEN 

Het CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) heeft de Michelin Groep geplaatst op haar Climate A lijst van best presterende bedrijven in de strijd tegen de klimaatveranderingen. 


Het CDP is door 827 internationale investeerders gevraagd om op onafhankelijke wijze de milieustrategie van bedrijven te evalueren. Op basis van de gegevens die door duizenden bedrijven worden verstrekt over hun initiatieven om de ontregeling van het klimaat te bestrijden, stelt CDP jaarlijks de Climate A lijst vast. Die onderscheidt de meest milieuvriendelijke bedrijven. 

Van alle aan het CDP Klimaatveranderingsprogramma deelnemende bedrijven komt 9 % op de Climate A lijst voor. Michelin behoort tot die 9 % en daarmee worden haar activiteiten erkend die zijn gericht op de reductie van de CO2-emissie en het terugdringen van klimaatveranderingseffecten. 

Claire Dorland Clauzel, lid van het Executive Committee van de Michelin Groep, verklaarde hierover het volgende tijdens de prijsuitreiking: “Michelin is de enige bandenproducent op de Climate A lijst. We zijn daar bijzonder trots op. Maar we zijn ons ook bewust van de weg die nog voor ons ligt. Onze strategie van duurzame groei sluit perfect aan bij de doelstellingen van onze maatschappelijke verantwoordelijkheid. Michelin zal ook aanwezig zijn op de COP22 in Marrakesh om producten en diensten te promoten die een steeds schonere, efficiëntere en milieuvriendelijkere mobiliteit bevorderen, terwijl partnerships worden opgebouwd met publieke en private partijen om de mobiliteit van de toekomst gestalte te geven.” 
Paul Simpson, CEO van het CDP, zei in zijn toespraak: “We feliciteren de 193 bedrijven op de Climate A lijst die vooroplopen in de strijd voor een toekomst met weinig CO2. Bedrijven zijn de belangrijkste partijen om tot een wereldeconomie te komen waarin nieuwe klimaatdoelstellingen worden gerealiseerd. De bedrijven op de A-lijst wijzen anderen de weg en stimuleren hen om gedurfde maatregelen te nemen en gebruik te maken van de vele kansen die er liggen.”

Central Classics beurs 17 en 18 december

Centraal in Nederland
Central Classics beurs 17 en 18 december opnieuw 10.000 m2

Door de grote belangstelling van bezoekers en standhouders uit binnen- en buitenland krijgt de derde Central Classics beurs in Houten (bij Utrecht) weer 10.000 m2 beursvloer. Alle hallen van Expo Houten worden gebruikt.  

Central Classics biedt de bezoekers voor een tientje entree (dames en kinderen tot 12 jaar zijn gratis, parkeren is gratis) een mix van standhouders uit binnen- en buitenland, met de nadruk op motoren, bromfietsen en onderdelen. Je vindt er ook kleding, helmen, gereedschap, enz., maar er wordt op gelet dat het in verhouding blijft en liefst gespecialiseerd zodat er een gevarieërd aanbod is. Verder zijn er weer mini-colleges met diverse onderwerpen, gegeven door liefhebbers voor liefhebbers. 


Central Classics biedt voor standhouders een centraal in het land gelegen beurs met bezoekers uit alle windstreken, ook van over de grens. En voor de bezoekers vanuit het hele land is het een prima mogelijkheid om op rijdbare afstand klassieke motoren en bromfietsen te zien én andere liefhebbers te ontmoeten. Er zijn gratis parkeerplaatsen, er is een fraai restaurant en aangezien de Central Classics beurs het weekend  voor de Kerst plaats vindt zal de Kerstsfeer niet ontbreken. Allemaal ingrediënten voor een mooi beursweekend!

Clubstands
Uiteraard zullen ook de diverse clubs met hun klassieke tweewielers niet ontbreken. Inmiddels zijn de motorclubstands goed voorzien, van de bromfietsclubs kunnen er -gratis!- nog een paar bij, maar wees snel. Dus kom op bromfietsliefhebbers, en stuur een mailtje naar de organisatie. Alle info op de website www.centralclassics.nl.

Zelf wat verkopen?
Gewoon proberen! Ondanks dat de hallen zo goed als vol zitten zijn particuliere verkopers meer dan welkom. Meld je aan voor een stand, zolang de motoren en bromfietsen maar van voor 1980 zijn of de onderdelen bedoeld voor motoren en bromfietsen uit die periode. Heb je vragen, stuur een mailtje en Central Classics  begeleidt waar nodig. 

De beurs wordt op 17 en 18 december gehouden in Expo Houten, Meidoornkade 24, 3992 AE Houten. Openingstijden zaterdag van 10.00 tot 17.00 uur, zondag van 10.00 tot 16.00 uur.

La Rosa Design Makes Canvas the New Leather

La Rosa Design Makes Canvas the New Leather

San Leandro, CA - Traditionally, motorcycle saddlebags and seats are manufactured using leather and this is true with most of La Rosa Designs' product line.

The whole collection is made with quality heavy weight military grade canvas and are designed to fit all years H-D Softail models.

SHOEI RYD

SHOEI RYD
‘EIGENZINNIGE HELM VOOR EIGENZINNIGE RIJDERS’

Voor 2017 breidt Shoei haar toch al indrukwekkende integraalhelmgamma nog verder uit. Naast de sportieve X-Spirit III en NXR, en de meer toer georiënteerde GT-Air en Qwest, wordt de line-up volgend jaar gecompleteerd met deze nieuwe RYD, een lekker eigenzinnige helm met een ronduit badass uitstraling. 



Die stoere uitstraling, die de helm niet alleen dankt aan zijn scherpe, aerodynamische design, maar ook aan de opvallende, krachtig vormgegeven  luchtinlaten op kin en voorhoofd, gaat uiteraard niet ten koste van Shoei’s bekende draagcomfort. Basis van de RYD is bijvoorbeeld

MICHELIN POWER RS

MICHELIN INTRODUCES THE SPORT MOTORCYCLE ROAD TYRE MARKET’S NEW BENCHMARK: THE MICHELIN POWER RS 

To mark this important launch, the MICHELIN Power RS sport road tyre will be unveiled at the MICHELIN® Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix. This new range delivers exceptional performance and will be available for sale from January 1. 



When it comes to dry-weather grip, agility, stability and peerless handling performance, the MICHELIN Power RS stands out as the sport motorcycle road tyre market’s new benchmark* and accordingly targets the most discerning riders. 



For a single tyre to boast such a high level of performance in all these areas is the fruit of the combination of Michelin’s longstanding expertise, its experience of topflight racing and the diversification of its innovations.  The combination of new rubber compounds, some of which are derived from racing, and a new carcass has resulted in incomparable grip on dry roads and a unique experience for the rider. The innovative rear tyre features a patented construction which benefits from MICHELIN ACT+ technology for impeccable straight-line and cornering stability.  



The tyre will be available in 13 different sizes (four front and nine rear) covering a broad spectrum of motorcycles, from 300cc bikes to large capacity Supersport machines. 



* According to a series of tests carried out by Michelin in 2016 at Fontanges, Cartagena and Ladoux using a 2015-specification BMW S1000RR equipped with 120/70ZR17 (front) and 190/55ZR17 (rear) tyres, comparing the new MICHELIN Power RS with the following competitor tyres: the Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3, the Dunlop Sportsmart 2, the Continental Sportattack III, the Bridgestone S21, the Metzeler M7RR.
