Krawiec In The Lead At NHRA Finals Face-Off with Teammate Hines

By | General Posts | No Comments

In an all-Harley final round, Krawiec defeated his Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines teammate Andrew Hines in the first head-to-head face-off of the new Harley-Davidson Street Rod competition drag bikes. Krawiec scored the 40th win of his career on Sunday while setting the low ET (6.826 seconds) and fastest top speed (197.74 mph) of the event for Pro Stock Motorcycle eliminations.

“We are racing a couple of great Street Rod drag bikes right now,” said Krawiec, who won for the fourth time in five final-round appearances this season. “They are handling well, they are fast and most importantly they are smooth and consistent. We can race round after round and know exactly how these bikes will react. If we maintain this performance we will be a force through the playoffs.”

In a weekend dominated by the two Harley racers, Hines secured the top qualifying position with a best elapsed time (ET) of 6.825 seconds at 196.50 mph. Krawiec qualified his Street Rod drag bike second at 6.836 seconds and 195.00 mph. On Sunday, Krawiec and Hines battered the Pro Stock Motorcycle field, and for the 20th time the two former champions lined up to face each other in a final round battle. On this afternoon, Krawiec prevailed with a 6.850-second blast to better the 6.911-second pass posted by Hines.

After the first of six rounds in the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship playoffs, Krawiec leads the Pro Stock Motorcycle class with 2,202 points. Hines is in fourth place with 2,144 points.

The Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle®/Vance & Hines Pro Stock Motorcycle drag racing team returns to action September 22-24 at the Dodge NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pa.

Interesting week ahead, but first consider anything you can do to help disaster victims in our various states. I always trust the American Red Cross, but there are lots of valid agencies. Support our brothers and sisters everywhere, quick.

Dave Mann and Mary.

I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose your home. I’m catching stories about tons of drywall and everything valuable moved up stairs. Then there are the unrelenting government agencies demanding their cut while your house is in shambles. That’s not to mention insurance agencies and dealing with legal shit you have never dealt with before.

Anything we can do will help immensely. Let’s hit the news.

BLUE BIKERNET WEEKLY NEWS for September 14, 2017

By | General Posts | No Comments


What are you thinking about today? Are you pondering the fight over the wall, Korea and the punk who runs it, Syria, hurricane victims, or the latest government intrusion into our lives.

I donated to hurricane relief, and I quit watching commercial television, so I dodge much of the misery.

So, what am I thinking about? I’m chasing parts for my Panhead Project, trying to reach Lee Clemens about my 45 Engine build, working with the muralist on the side of the building, thinking about a sailing trip to Cuba, and pondering how we can help Wilmington on the Port of Los Angeles shine again.

There’s just one example of the diversity of our thinking and all the shit flying at us daily. So what’s the conclusion, what should you take away from the above. Two basic premises. First, you can see by the above lists a man can think about almost anything including about the Redhead next door and they are just thoughts.

Second, we can think about what could bring us down, negativity or all about creativity and positive outcomes. I like freedom and creative endeavors. There’s one you can help with in the news from the MRF. Let’s hit it.

MRF Call to Action – We Need a Vote on the RPM Act

By | General Posts | No Comments

MRF Friends and Supporters-

Today I sat in a congressional hearing that considered the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act (or ‘RPM’ Act).

As you all know, the RPM Act is critical legislation that became necessary after the EPA attempted to sneak in language that would make it illegal for you to make modifications to your motorcycle even if it is for the purposes of racing. Though the Agency withdrew the language, even today they still maintain they have the authority to enforce this.

We MUST get this legislation passed which would ensure our right to modify our motorcycles as we see fit and ensure the EPA can’t fine us for doing what WE HAVE ALWAYS DONE.

This legislation is broadly supported by both Republicans AND Democrats. The only thing it needs now is a chance at a vote.

PLEASE CLICK/SHARE/SEND/POST the following link that will take you to a pre-drafted letter to your elected officials asking them to consider the RPM Act for a vote.

Let’s not just be SAY-ERS, let’s be DO-ERS!

Veterans In Texas and Florida Need Your Help

By | General Posts | No Comments

The devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey is unlike any I’ve seen before. Flooding… stranded families… lost homes…

And among the affected are our nation’s heroes — men and women who fought for our country that is now in a state of emergency.

Veterans in Texas — and now Florida — desperately need your help. Our disaster relief fund is now depleted, and we need to be able to continue to help in Texas, help victims of Hurricane Irma, and be prepared for any other natural disasters that may occur this year. Please send an urgently needed donation today.

As the storm waters subside, more of the devastation is being revealed. But thanks to supporters like you, we’re there to help. And today your generosity will have 2X the impact, thanks to a generous donor who will match all donations up to $300,000.

Our disaster response team is working across Texas to locate and offer support to veterans and their families. We are handing out relief supply kits complete with blankets and other basic necessities that are normally easily accessible. Additionally, we’re providing financial assistance so veterans and their families can obtain food, warm clothes and shelter to get through this extremely difficult time.

These disaster-stricken veterans are counting on DAV to help. And your gift of $35 to the Disaster Relief Fund will be worth $70 thanks to a generous friend, Living Beach (a company in Myrtle Beach, SC), if you give right now.

When tragedies like this strike, veterans in need turn to DAV because they know that’s just who we are and what we do. Keith, I know your heart goes out to everyone affected by these storms. Today, I’m hoping patriots like you will give a gift from the heart so we can offer even more support to those heroes affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma.

Please do consider a match-eligible, tax-deductible gift right now. These families desperately need it…
