We’re not sure what happened yet, but Dave Shaw went down on his old Softail Saturday night while rolling off the 405 Freeway onto the 10 heading toward Santa Monica, California. He has a concussion and is in the California Medical Center in Santa Monica. He’s stable, but they plan to keep an eye on him for a couple more days. No broken bones, and I was told glowing reports about his voluptuous Swedish nurse.
We will keep you posted. Dave was riding with the notorious Ben Kudon and Kelly Dube. They are being sought for questioning.

The all-new Spark Plug Fillers from Kuryakyn eliminate the visible void on the left side of all Victory 100- and 106-cubic-inch powerplants. Named to Powersports Business magazine’s 2016 list of “Nifty 50” award winners, the Spark Plug Fillers pick up where the factory left off by converting the upper cylinder heads into clean, completely finned jugs.
Kuryakyn Spark Plug Fillers are cast from quality aluminum and utilize a unique single-screw, wedge-compression install. The result is an uncluttered, hardware-free appearance that seamlessly complements the cylinder heads. A smooth black powder-coated finish provides depth, while polished outer edges mimic the factory fins for a unified transformation that takes only minutes. Kuryakyn Spark Plug Fillers are a must-have upgrade for all ’06-’16 Victory models, as well as ’05 Hammer models.
• P/N 7189 – Kuryakyn Spark Plug Fillers, MSRP: $89.99
