Harley Davidson and the City of Milwaukee hosted the 115th celebration that would have made William Harley and the three Davidson brothers: Arthur, William and Walter proud.

Instead of being hosted at the Summerfest Park as in previous events, there were multiple locations in and around Milwaukee that gave participants more variety and events centered on motorcycles and less on big name concert productions. More local acts performed on various stages scattered throughout events around the city, and only one big name country concert on September 1st featuring Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker was held at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater, with Russel Dickerson as the opening act.

We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document.

The reality we must come to terms with, however, is that in the America we live in today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned.

“That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn’t even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn’t even an enemy you could put your finger on.” Read more.

NAMZ Connector for 2004-Up Harleys

By | General Posts

NAMZ has finally tooled up and made these illusive connectors that were once ONLY available from the “factory”. Tooling is so very expensive but the work-arounds and inability to make so many items “plug-n-play” caused us to do what needed to be done. The NAMZ NHD-72130-04 connector kit comes complete with (12) female terminals and is used on almost ALL 2004-Up factory models. It is found on Speedometers, Tachometers and the rear fender (Tri-Bar fender light) harness on 2010-Up Street/Road Glide Models. Will be available on our website by 10-15-18! More information here.

MV Agusta and Pirelli Design Team Up To Create The Dragster 800 RR Pirelli

By | General Posts

Presented in a world preview during the inauguration of the new P ZERO World of Monte Carlo, this limited edition version of the Dragster 800 RR is embellished with rubber details developed by Pirelli Design and can be equipped with exclusive DIABLO Supercorsa colored tires

The collaboration between Pirelli and MV Agusta continues. The two Italian companies stand out for their industrial history – appreciated all over the world for their shared values such as their ‘Made in Italy’ design and the strong association with motorsport. The result of this synergy is the latest limited edition jewel created by MV Agusta and Pirelli Design, the “Dragster 800 RR PIRELLI”, which was presented in a world premiere on Saturday, September 22 at the inauguration of the new P ZERO World of Monte Carlo.

A streetfighter’s look with a powerful three-cylinder heart, the MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR is the technical base for the development of this version. It is a perfect blend of raw power, technology and design, while super compact, aggressive and stunningly good looking. The design of the “Dragster 800 RR PIRELLI” takes no prisoners – it is emotion in its purest form. The weight distribution, the refined chassis and suspension as well as its unique three-cylinder character are the main characteristics of a machine that was created for the most demanding riding enthusiasts.

For the first time Pirelli Design, born as an incubator of high-end projects with the aim of enhancing technological know-how, high performance standards and the unique glamour inherent in the Pirelli brand not only personalizes the look of the bike containing two different color combinations – the first more gritty black and yellow, the second most elegant white and blue – but has also taken care to enhance functional aspects of the bike. In fact, the tank slider and the fairing are made of rubber specially formulated by Pirelli’s Research and Development department to ensure superior resistance to scratches and rubbing to which these items are subject, as well as to atmospheric and chemical agents, such as the fuel. Both rubber elements are recognizable thanks to the iconic “flash” symbol that distinguishes the tires of the DIABLO range, including the DIABLO Supercorsa SP that equip this model in 120/70 ZR17 front and 200/55 ZR17 rear with a 6″ rim.

The seat was created ad hoc by the Castiglioni Research Centre to make this creation even more exclusive. It stands out for its double texture with contrasting stitching and for the distinctive “flash” of the DIABLO embroidered to embellish the tail unit signed by Pirelli Design. Particularly refined is also the finish of the exhaust silencer terminals, obtained through the application of a special ceramic-based paint, resistant to very high temperatures.

The colors conceived by specialists from the Castiglioni Research Centre and by Pirelli Design aim to enhance the lines of the “Dragster 800 RR PIRELLI”. To underline this exclusive partnership, the first proposal includes a matte black base, with glossy inserts painted in yellow to recapture the Pirelli institutional colors. A yellow logo is also for the Pirelli brand on the sides of the tank, as well as for the DIABLO logo, which identifies the range of high-performance Pirelli tires. The second color is centered on a glossy white base with blue inserts.

To unequivocaly identify the bike as a result of the colaboration between MV Agusta and Pireli, it is possible to purchase, as an exclusive option, DIABLO Supercorsa SP tires with colored sides, respectively with yellow or blue stripes, depending on the version to which they are combined.

The “Dragster 800 RR PIRELLI”, which already happened for the Brutale 800 RR PIRELLI, will go into production and be sold in a limited edition, thanks to a separate license agreement between Pirelli and MV Agusta.
