More From Milwaukee - 
Two More 'Biggies' This Week...

In line with Wisconsin's emergency ordnance, Harley production in and near Milwaukee is now closed down until around the final week of April.
In another aftershock from the invitation for former CEO Matt Levatich to vacate his post, and maybe also in connection with the shareholder unrest that has now spilled into the public domain, ex-Chief Operations Officer Michelle Kumbier has now also been invited to seek pastures new.

Michelle joined Harley in 2007 as Vice President Materials Management & Quality and garnered a number of resume bumps, including responsibility for Product Development (2010) and VP Product & Operations (2015) en route to, effectively, being Levatich's second-in-command in product and operations terms as COO (2017).


ex-Chief Operations Officer Michelle Kumbier

Harley shares closed at $15.34 at close on Monday March 23rd, having been as low as $14.31 during the day, and before recovering to $20.75 at close on March 26. Polaris shares closed at $41.77 on March 23rd, having been as low as $41.22 - after starting the year at $103.03 on January 1st and having still been as high as $92.48 on March 4th. By close on March 26, Polaris had recovered ground to $53.09 - the market cap. is now $3.27 bn; Harley's is $3.18 bn.
All the major motorcycle manufacturer share prices are seriously down on their respective indexes around the world, with only KTM occasionally showing the flicker of a pulse. From Japan to Italy, China to Germany, there is no, or very little, production of any of the top dozen selling brands of motorcycles or scooters taking place. There is some limited small displacement local model production activity taking place in South America, India and elsewhere in Asia.

Mega MotorTreffen verplaatst naar mei 2021

Mega MotorTreffen verplaatst naar mei 2021

Het is met pijn in ons hart dat we jullie moeten meedelen dat het Mega MotorTreffen verplaatst wordt naar mei 2021. Oorspronkelijk stond ons evenement gepland voor zaterdag 16 en zondag 17 mei 2020 in het Autotron, maar door de verscherpte overheidsmaatregelen vanwege het COVID-19-virus zijn we genoodzaakt maatregelen te nemen.


Alle MOTO73-, Promotor-, Classic & Retro en digital-abonnees, die een gratis toegangsticket hebben ontvangen, krijgen volgend jaar wederom een gratis toegangsbewijs. Iedereen die via Ticketpoint een kaartje voor het Mega MotorTreffen 2020 heeft gekocht, krijgt via Ticketpoint het geld terug. Je hoeft daar niets voor te doen, je geld wordt zo spoedig mogelijk teruggestort.

‘De gezondheid van onze bezoekers, participanten, medewerkers en vrijwilligers staat voorop. Het Mega MotorTreffen is hard op weg een zeer groot motorfestival te worden, wat dit jaar voor de vierde keer georganiseerd zou worden. Het is in de huidige situatie onverantwoord grote groepen mensen bij elkaar te brengen en wij staan dan ook volledig achter de maatregelen, die de Nederlandse overheid heeft aangekondigd. We vinden het als organisatie ontzettend jammer dat het Mega MotorTreffen niet op 16 en 17 mei 2020 plaats kan vinden en dat we de beslissing hebben moeten nemen om het evenement naar 2021 te verplaatsen. We hadden graag met duizenden motorrijders een fantastisch motorfeest gevierd, maar nemen onze verantwoordelijkheid door het welzijn van iedereen voorop te stellen.’

TecMate - Get Smart, Lithium or Lead Battery, why is a different battery charger needed?

TecMate - Get Smart


Martin Human, CEO and CTO of TecMate, answers a common question - why is a different battery charger needed for a lithium battery if it works in a motorcycle that originally came with a lead-acid battery?

As with many things to do with battery types and motorcycle electrics, diagnostics and charging, the answer is not as simple as many people expect.



The safe working voltage range for both lead-acid (Standard lead-acid, AGM and Gel) and lithium LiFePO4 (LFP) battery types is 12.8V to 14.5V. As long as voltage is within that range, yes, a lithium battery works fine in the same system as a lead-acid battery, but below this safe voltage range, lithium and lead-acid batteries need different care.

An over-discharged lithium battery will accept charge at low voltage, but the healthier cells demand all the charge and weaker cells keep on falling behind. Charging at high current will damage that battery. A gentle low current pulse charge brings all cells back to good health simultaneously - once above 9V-10V the battery is ready to receive normal charge. 

An over-discharged lead-acid battery is unable to accept charge at low voltage due to a high concentration of lead-sulphate that inhibits the ability of all cells to accept charge. To ‘convince’ the battery to once again accept charge, a higher pulsed voltage is required to break through.
A single battery charger that can differentiate between battery chemistries and deliver the right recovery method for the connected battery would be ideal, and fortunately the OptiMate 1 DUO fits the bill. 

OptiMate 1 DUO recovers batteries from as low as 4V; the smart programming automatically figures out which recovery program is right for the attached battery, never mind the chemistry. A deep discharged lead-acid battery receives a higher voltage pulsing mode up to 14.5V, so it remains safe for lithium, and a deep discharged lithium battery receives a mild pulsing current that gently recondition the cells until they are equal and the battery recovers to above 9V - then a suitably higher charge current is delivered. 

Here is a valuable tip learned from many years of experience - below 4 volt batteries need care from a chemistry-specific charger; OptiMate Lithium 4s 0.8A can safely recover lithium batteries from as low as 0.5V and test battery health as it does so. The best option for lead-acid batteries is the OptiMate 4. 



OptiMate 1 DUO’s 24-7 maintenance program is also adaptive, it can sense what is required. In a parked vehicle a lithium battery needs protection against total discharge by that vehicle’s system and the OptiMate 1 DUO delivers when needed. On the other hand, an AGM battery - the most popular lead-acid in powersport – receives hourly maintenance to remain at full charge and prevent lead-sulphate build-up that weakens the battery.  

Best of all is that the OptiMate 1 DUO has no buttons, no need to guess what battery is in the motorcycle. Simply connect to the battery and let that smart charger do the thinking. 

In today’s world everyone wants ‘easy’. OptiMate 1 DUO is as EASY as connect and forget, no more battery problems - and that is what people want and need these days!
As time goes on, more and more reputable brands are choosing to partner with OptiMate 1 DUO for their diagnostics, maintenance and charging - the latest to offer the OptiMate 1 DUO is Moose Racing - and the Moose Racing OptiMate 1 DUO is distributed by Parts Europe, Parts Unlimited and Parts Canada.

Drag Specialties 'King of the Baggers'

Drag Specialties 'King of the Baggers'

'King of the Baggers' Teams for Laguna Seca
Fourteen teams have signed up to compete in the inaugural Drag Specialties 'King of the Baggers' invitational event that hopefully will be part of the MotoAmerica Superbike Speedfest at Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, July 10-12, with the grid now full for the exhibition race.

Fourteen teams have committed to racing in the inaugural Drag Specialties 'King of the Baggers' invitational at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, July 11.

"It's been really cool to see how well the 'King of the Baggers' invitational has been received since we made the announcement," said MotoAmerica's Senior Sponsorship Manager Lance Bryson. "The guys over at Drag Specialties have really stepped up with our event at Laguna and we've got a lot of great companies building tricked-out Performance Baggers for the race. It's going to be a lot of fun and we think our fans are going to like what they see with this and the rest of the cool stuff we have planned for the Superbike Speedfest at Monterey."
"In all my years of working in the motorcycle industry, I have never been to Laguna Seca," said Brandon Holstein, owner/builder of The Speed Merchant. "So, I am beyond excited to be going for the first time and being a part of the first ever Drag Specialties 'King of the Baggers' race."
Alex Fox, founder of SLYFOX Performance, added: "I'm honored to have my brand be a part of this first-ever event of this magnitude. That Corkscrew section will be something to keep an eye on. This day will be one for the history books."
"This is for the fans and for the brands who love to build and ride – racing is part of Saddlemen's heritage, and we're honored to be on the starting grid with our moto family," said David Echert of Saddlemen.


Honda-Hitachi to acquire Showa, Keihin and Nissin

Honda-Hitachi to acquire Showa, Keihin and Nissin

Having reduced its once controlling interest to a 33.5% stake some years ago, Honda has announced that it is to buy up all outstanding shares in Showa and two other well-known Japanese motorcycle component industry majors in which it also has significant stakes - Keihin and Nissin - in a massive deal with automotive supply giant Hitachi Automotive Systems (HAS) to create a new combined business that will swallow up all three of the component makers.


The new business will be jointly owned by Hitachi, who will own 66.6% of the shares in the combined business, with Honda owning the remaining one third. Honda currently owns 33.5% of Showa, having once held a controlling interest, 34.86% of Nissin and 41.35% of Keihin. It is reported that the combined business will have around 1.8 trillion yen in sales ($16.5 billion).

The deal will bring together, into one integrated business, three areas of component manufacturing - suspensions, fuel management and brakes - that are increasingly interdependent; a trend that can only increase in the future as automotive and motorcycle systems themselves become ever more integrated and economies of scale become ever more important.

The merged company will focus on developing components for EV and self-driving systems, along with new on-demand mobility services, combining their scale in a bid to come up with products more quickly and efficiently.
Hitachi said that the increasing complexity of vehicle technologies required bigger R&D

Harris Performance built Royal Enfield Flat Track (FT) machine

Royal Enfield, Moto Anatomy Partner for Production Twins Effort with New S&S, Harris Flat Track 650
In addition to its partnership with AFT as the Official OEM Partner, Milwaukee-based Royal Enfield North America (RENA) is to back the Moto Anatomy campaign in the Production Twins class, with decorated flat track racer Johnny Lewis developing and racing a new Harris Performance built Royal Enfield Flat Track (FT) machine.



As the chassis engineers behind the Royal Enfield 650 parallel twins, Harris, which is owned by Royal Enfield and has an impeccable motorcycle race frame pedigree going back more than 30 years, is the ideal partner to build the Interceptor 650 based special edition with support from Royal Enfield and S&S Cycle.
"This racing effort is unprecedented in Royal Enfield's North American history," said RENA's Breeann Poland. "Johnny Lewis is a legitimate contender anytime he's on the track, and we couldn't have picked a better partner in his organization, Moto Anatomy.

"Flat Track continues to garner attention from both a professional and grassroots level and we feel strongly about our extended partnership with AFT and now Moto Anatomy. We are thrilled to bring the Royal Enfield brand to more enthusiasts, and this is a great opportunity to do that on a major scale."

Lewis has risen through the ranks of AFT and enjoyed success at both the amateur and professional levels. The concept Twins FT was first seen at the 2019 EICMA Show and was slated to make its media debut at the Daytona TT in March.
Lewis will then compete with the motorcycle for the first time at the Laconia short track event on June 13 and will run all AFT short track events for the remainder of the season in the Production Twins class. The Royal Enfield FT will also run the Sturgis Buffalo Chip TT and Peoria TT as a wildcard entry in the Super Twins class.
"I'm excited to lead the development of the Royal Enfield Flat Track Twin program in 2020," said Lewis, owner of Moto Anatomy. "Being involved at such an early stage in a brand's racing efforts has been a fantastic opportunity. While our focus is on development, there is great potential in the platform and it's encouraging to see a manufacturer with as much history as Royal Enfield entering AFT.

"It's also great to see Royal Enfield helping grow the sport of motorcycling in North America with its new rider initiatives."
Besides racing, Moto Anatomy will also use the Royal Enfield FT411, a modified variation of the Royal Enfield Himalayan set-up exclusively for flat track use, as part of Royal Enfield Slide School Presented by Moto Anatomy.
This flat track riding clinic will be available to the public at select events during 2020, giving riders the opportunity to learn the basics of flat track in a controlled environment.

RSD Corona Virus Bike Build Off : Breaking News Update 2

RSD COMBATS PANDEMIC BLUES WITH THE CORONA VIRUS BIKE BUILD OFF

The team at RSD has come up with a cure for the quarantine boredom, enter the #CORONAVIRUSBIKEBUILDOFF. With lots of cash and prizes up for grabs, we want to see your best builds. The C.V.B.B is a global contest open to all things two wheels …maybe even three. 

 
The Corona Virus Bike Build is the “if I only had the time to work on my bike” incarnate. As most of us are sequestered to our homes, we are encouraging bike builders from all backgrounds to help flatten the curve and finally tackle that project that’s been sitting idle either in the garage or your imagination. We’ve teamed up with key industry sponsors @motulusa @ridedunlop @bell_powersports @fox @paughcoparts @pit_viper @lexinmoto and @bikergearclub to kick in cash and prizes to aid in the completion of your builds. RSD has even discounted most RSD hard parts at 19% off across our website.

 
Like most things we do, the rules are loose.
Rule #1 Build what you like, we’d prefer it be two wheels and motorized, but if you build a badass trike or a bicycle, we won’t be mad.
Rule #2 #hashtaging a completed build is ok, but you probably won’t win.
Rule #3 We don’t know when this shit show is going to end, so as of this time, there is no official end date. Our best approximation is Mid May or five to eight weeks from today. That said, things could change and be extended or shortened due to severity.
Rule #4 Socialize!! Have fun with it. Talk about it, hashtag, share it with friends, basically do everything you’re not supposed to do right now, just do it on social media. Show your fellow builders support, like and comment on projects that you love or maybe ones you think need a little extra help. Keep it funny, treat people with the respect you afford yourself and stay away from everyone!!!


Rule #5 This is a worldwide competition. We are all in this together borders and oceans may separate us, but the heart of the two-wheeled culture is alive and well and lives through all of us and the Corona Bike Build Off.
Judging will take place all online with special guest judges, so make sure you are following our channels and using correct hashtags to get noticed and have a chance to win. Post often and Tag always. The more active you are the better your chances.
 
There will be specific giveaways pertaining to the sponsors, so be sure to stay in touch and follow the #coronavirusbikebuildoff hashtag on Instagram for up to date info.  And tag #coronavirusbikebuildoff  @rolandsandsdesign @rolandsands  @motulusa @ridedunlop @bell_powersports @fox @paughcoparts @pit_viper @lexinmoto and @bikergearclub

CARDO SYSTEMS – HELPING WITH BACKFLIPS AND WHIPS WITH BOLDDOG FMX STUNT TEAM

CARDO SYSTEMS – HELPING WITH BACKFLIPS AND WHIPS WITH BOLDDOG FMX STUNT TEAM
The highly-skilled stunt riders from the Bolddog stunt team have chosen Cardo Systems to join their ‘squad’, the PACKTALK Bold units now playing a major in the show preparation and performances. 

Jumping their motorcycles up to 40ft high, across a 75ft gap between ramps in a live action arena, with thousands of spectators watching, the pressure is on for the Freestyle Motocross riders every time they perform. Previously, the team used to rely on the self-proclaimed ‘old-school communication techniques’ including a combination of hand gestures and a flag system.
Stuntman and Bolddog FMX ace, Dan Whitby, explains: “The Cardo System PACKTALK units have massively changed the way in which we perform. The clarity from the JBL speakers is great and the way that the volume automatically changes is amazing.


“When performing, it can be a pretty stressful environment - you’ve got LED’s on the bikes which is making them heavier than normal, low light levels and pyrotechnics. Having direct contact in a live performance is extremely helpful. When we perform our show finale, where we aim to get as many bikes in the air as possible, we’re jumping with small gaps between us. While this is perfected through lots of practice - and trust - I used to tap my rear mudguard for their signal - not anymore!”


The Dynamic Mesh Communication (DMC) connectivity means that the performers can swap positions and move in and out of range however many times they like, without the need to manually reconnect.
“We’re surprised how well the DMC works - means there’s no stress of having to mess around reconnecting. We’re probably a very extreme example to test the range of the units as it’s not just all floor level, we’re up in the air too!”


It’s not just during performances in which the units are proving beneficial, but also while training and practice too…
“We’re constantly working to improve our performances so being able to speak to each other while training and bringing on new riders, it’s super helpful. Riding with the units means that everyone can stay on their bikes and don’t have to ride over to each other every two minutes just to give a little pointer. We’ve got some exciting plans too - which Cardo will play a role in - so watch this space!”

Performing all over the world, the Cardo units have become a staple of the Bolddog FMX team kit.

Swiss MOTO/Swiss CUSTOM

SWISS STYLE 2020 Customizing “Made in Switzerland”!
Swiss MOTO/Swiss CUSTOM
February 20th-23rd 2020

Story (tekst and photo's) by Horst "Motographer" Roesler

It is about one hour of tram, railway and about ten minutes foot march from the Messe Zuerich in Oerlikon to one of the most scenic panorama views of the Swiss Alps: Looking down from the Uetliberg –just above the city and lake, once the „last stand“ in times of war – one can see the importance of Zuerich as Switzerlands main business city, as well as the crowded conditions inside the city limits and the surrounding countryside. 




Zuerich remains THE secret capital of Switzerland and is still expanding into the countryside. But the newly built tower on top of the 869 meter high peak also gives a stunning view on the Alp mountain range that offers so many great riding opportunities for motorcyclists – at least when the weather allows. Swiss Moto/Swiss Custom in Zürich, for years the complete showcase on Switzerland’s enthusiastic motorcycle scene and the “gateway” to what is happening to the Swiss scene. As small as the country might be, there are major names in European Customizing at home in Switzerland – and that includes all cantons of the country! 2020, the annual HOG Rally will again hit Lugano –and the LOVE RIDE will hopefully recover from last years devastating „rain out“ – snow in may! Who needs that?  Switzerland has a lot to offer, but it certainly has its price...



When it comes to travelling, Switzerland does not range among the „bargain“ countries to have a vacation. SFr. 5,-- for a bottle of plain water, 24,-- for the entrance fee – and don‘t ask for accomodation and getting a dinner after a hard and busy show day. Having travelled in and around Switzerlands motorcycle scene for 40 years, „Swiss Moto“ and „Swiss Custom“ have become „hit and run“ affairs that can be performed in a one day visit – including the long awaited tour to the Uetliberg Panorama Tower, which was on the authors „to do“ list for twenty years, since the first Swiss PERFORMANCE hit Dietikon in the year 2000. Swiss PERFORMANCE is now history, having been part of Swiss Moto for some time, but the spirit of customizing is still alive, despite rising challenges, of which costs for displaying at Zuerich Trade Fair have become a considerable portion. 


  

The “Swiss Custom” portion of the Swiss Moto event includes a scenic bike show, embedded into a “Western Town” setting that also features presentations and a stage program which is highlighted by performances of the “Fuel Girls” from England. This year, the event has shrunken back to just one hall – and even in this hall, some former display booth seemed to have been filled with bikeshow competitors. Not too surprising, as exhibitors like Dr. Jekill &
