Klock Werks Supports Organ Donation, Family Through Tattooed for Life Raffle Bike

By | General Posts

 

Our friends over at Klock Werks are raffling off an awesome 2010 tricked out Victory Kingpin next Friday, Oct. 26. The bike, Tattooed for Life, honors two men close to the Klock Werks family who were tragically killed in different accidents and represents the importance of organ donation.

Twenty-nine-year old Vic Briggs, a Klock Werks team member, was lost in automobile accident in late June of 2011.

Austin Shimon, 20, a close friend of the Klock Werks family, passed away after a motorcycle accident in 2009. Both Vic and Austin were organ donors, and through their selfless gifts, were able to save the lives of others awaiting organ donation.

The team at Klock Werks decided they wanted to do something to pay tribute to their two lost friends, and also something that would provide financial support through a trust fund to Vic’s family. Vic left four children behind, ranging in age from 9 to 1.

Victory graciously donated the motorcycle and Klock Werks tricked it out, café style, just as Vic would have wanted. Tattooed for Life features many characteristics of Vic from the gas tank featuring Vic’s tattoos to the front fender displaying “BR” in honor of his children, whose names all begin with “Br.” A guitar on the tail section is in remembrance of Austin.

 Tickets are $20 each or six for $100. The drawing will be held promptly at 7:30 p.m. CT next Friday (you do not need to be present to win) at Klock Werks in Mitchell, South Dakota. To purchase tickets or learn more about Tattooed for Life, click here.

Vented Windscreen Reduces Buffeting

By | General Posts

The new Wind Splitter Vented Windshield ($424.95) from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories® was developed by Harley-Davidson and tested in the Wichita State University wind tunnel to relieve low pressure behind the windshield and significantly reduce buffeting at the rider position. A fingertip-adjustable center vent matches air flow to the rider’s height and also provides cooling air to the rider at low speeds. The Wind Splitter Vented Windshield is engineered to provide the comfort of a larger windshield, but its shape keeps bugs and road grime below the rider’s sight line. The shield is formed of hard-coated polycarbonate for strength and scratch resistance, and the dark-smoked finish reduces glare. The polished stainless steel brackets mount to the Original Equipment docking points for ease of installation and removal. The Wind Splitter Vented Windshield fits 1994-later Road King® models (P/N 57400176), 2000-later Heritage Softail® Classic (P/N 57400159), and 2000-later Heritage Softail®, Fat Boy®, Fat Boy® Lo and Softail® Deluxe models (P/N 57400159) equipped with auxiliary lighting.

The bikers were at a local motorcycle shop for the Historical Markers Ride, an annual motorcycle scavenger hunt, held by North Carolina Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association.

The ride brought together the thrill of the hunt with the company of the local community, including many servicemembers and veterans.

“We wanted to put together a ride different from other rides,” said H. T. Huchi, the commander of the local CVMA and a retired Marine, better known as Hooch.
