The Troy Lee Designs/ Lucas Oil/ PPG/ Honda team had a roller coaster weekend at the Thunder Valley National in Colorado last weekend. Jake Moss and Chris Blose made it clear that they intended to have breakout rides over the weekend by posting the first and fourth quickest times in the second practice session. Their young teammate, Sean Borkenhagen, logged his best qualifying time this season with a ninth in the 250 class.
In the first 450 moto Chris Blose rounded turn one in second place behind Red Bull/Honda’s Ivan Tedesco. Moss was close behind in fifth but it wouldn’t take him long to move up and eventually pass his teammate. By lap three Moss was in a solid third behind Tedesco and Short while Blose fell back to the eighth spot. And that’s where both riders stayed until the closing laps when Reed…
Is it me, or does keeping a good attitude during a race get harder with age? It seems when I was younger, it was easier to race with drive and confidence. Now, when I am the last off the line into the first corner, the thought of quitting and riding in cruise control the remainder of the race seems to be my automatic plan B. So I find myself observing persons of all ages throughout the race day. It always amazes me how carefree the kids are. There are no worries for them; they just have fun riding and fool around when the race is over. Even so, it is hard for them to be my inspiration due to my age and responsibilities.
The Vet races usually begin a week prior to those of other classes. More so in the recent years, these events have been stressful. There are a number of things to prepare for in addition to the unexpected circumstances I must be ready to tackle. It takes time to get my bike and gear together…
Eco Factor: Zero-emission concept motorcycle powered by hydrogen.
Adding style and function to the famous 1970s-80s Honda CB Series, designer Igor Chak has designed the 2015 Honda CB 750, which is a green beast controlled by the most sophisticated technology. The bike has been designed to run on a four-cylinder liquid hydrogen engine emitting nothing more than a few drops of clean water.
Mostly all the systems running inside its powerhouse are controlled by computers, which is further controlled through a 5” OLED multi-touch display positioned right on the fuel tank. The computer has three menu options – GPS, Drive Modes and Diagnostics Mode. So if any day you feel your bike isn’t performing well, don’t take it a garage but connect it to your home computer. To keep the weight of the bike under control, the bike will be made using a combination of carbon fiber, aluminum and titanium.
The engine performance is enhanced with a six-speed dual clutch transmission with electronic lurch and traction control. Going fast on this machine doesn’t mean risking your life, as it comes with ABS, airbag, steering damper and radar technology that could sense an upcoming head-on collision and automatically slow the bike.
We at Niks Industries felt the Yamaha WR450F was very close to being an all-around dirt bike right off the showroom floor. Although considered a “big pig” by the common motohead, we looked past its shortcomings at what we could do to shape and trim this Ding Dongs-donut-eating-princess and turn her into the captain of the cheer squad and certified prom queen.
