Local Businesses Host Motorcycle Ride

By | General Posts

JACKSON, Tenn. — A local business hosted a fun motorcycle ride.

Motorcyclists gathered for the first Frost Butts Ride hosted by Bumpus Harley-Davidson of Jackson.

General manager Mike Gay says the ride is a way for bikers to come together, go on a ride in the cold weather, have some lunch at a local restaurant and fellowship with one another.

“This ride, and it’s kind of a secret ride,” Gay said. “We don’t tell anyone until the day, we get out here and start gathering around and do a safety briefing, but this ride will be going to Mercer to a restaurant called Papa Daddy’s.”

Gay says he hopes to make this an annual event.

Rally in the Alley–Vegas Style

By | General Posts

Hogs and Heifers Saloon in Las Vegas is known for their drinks, but more notably for their scantily clad bartenders dancing on bars between pours.  Normally, they do this inside the saloon, but when they move it outdoors, you know you’re in for one heck of a party.  In fact, the event was expected to be so large this year, that they had to move it down the street to the bus depot behind the Mob Museum.  This gave them room to add more vendors (30+) and build a massive outdoor bar for the ladies to do their dancing.

Monster Energy® Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo Podiums in Monster Energy Supercross 450SX Debut

By | General Posts

Foothill Ranch, Calif. (January 5, 2020) – Monster Energy® Kawasaki came into the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship season opener in Anaheim, California feeling stronger than ever with the dynamic rider duo of Eli Tomac and Adam Cianciarulo. Cianciarulo making his Monster Energy Supercross 450SX debut picked up right where he left off at the Monster Energy Cup, showing great speed aboard his KX™450 all day long. The rookie was able to capture the fastest qualifying, a second place finish and a spot on the podium.

While a true rookie in the 450SX class, Cianciarulo made the rest of the competition aware that he was a true player in this title chase. Cianciarulo started the day off perfect by setting the fastest times in all three practice sessions and finished second in his heat race. In the Main Event, Cianciarulo made quick moves to put his KX450 into second place and began to hunt down the leader. After a mistake from the leader, Cianciarulo was able to capitalize and begin building a lead over the field, however, a minor mistake cost Cianciarulo the win in his debut race, he continued to push, finishing in second place.

It is no secret that the No. 3 machine of Eli Tomac is a title contender and podium contender every time he lines up to race his KX450. Tomac showed this early in the day, qualifying in second place position heading into the night show. However, in both the heat race and main event a mid-pack start would ultimately hamper his results. Tomac finished the evening in seventh place overall.

After months of build-up to the Monster Energy Supercross opener at Angel Stadium, neither the racing nor the fans were disappointed. 45,050 fans packed the stadium to watch the greatest racers in the world compete on the biggest stage in supercross.

“I fell in love with Supercross watching Anaheim 1back in 1999. Ever since then I’ve been dreaming about what I got to experience tonight. Everything from opening ceremonies to getting my first 450 podium. I was bummed we couldn’t capture the win, but regardless I am stoked on this result. It is a long season, I still have a lot to learn and build on from here, but I am already fired up to go racing next weekend in St. Louis.”
– Adam Cianciarulo

“Man, the first race of the season is always an interesting one. The whole day is just chaotic. I started feeling a bit of a flow by the end of the last qualifying session today, but in both the heat race and main event tonight I got decent starts but got shuffled back in the first turn and the way the track broke down tonight it became very one-lined and difficult to make passes. The competition this year is deeper than ever, so we will regroup this week and come out swinging in St. Louis next weekend.”
– Eli Tomac

The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team of Austin Forkner and Cameron McAdoo came out charging at the season opener of the 2020 supercross series. Both having something to prove, Forkner was prepared to return to racing and his winning ways after his season was cut short by an injury last year, while McAdoo was ready for his Kawasaki debut aboard his KX™250 motorcycle.

After qualifying sixth on the day, Forkner charged through the field in the first heat race of the night moving into second position. Following an aggressive pass from one of his contenders, Forkner fell back to fourth but quickly made up time and made his own pass into third where he would finish.

The No. 29 of McAdoo kicked off the day qualifying with the fifth fastest lap time before entering his heat race. In 250SX Heat 2, McAdoo quickly made his way into third, where he went on to cross the finish line.

As the gate dropped on the 250SX Main Event, it was Forkner who grabbed the first holeshot of the season, while teammate McAdoo found himself mid-pack and having his work cut out for him. Forkner continued to charge, leading 11 laps before making a mistake through a rhythm lane causing him to collide head-on into a Tuff Block. The Missouri native finished third on track, but the officials penalized him two positions for how he reentered the track. McAdoo was able to pass three other contenders before reaching the checkered flag in sixth.

Canton veteran who lost leg rides again thanks to customized motorcycle

By | General Posts

by Kelly Byer from https://www.cantonrep.com

Challenge America: Makers For Veterans helped Charles Zollicoffer get back on the road.

Challenge America: Makers For Veterans helped Charles Zollicoffer ride a motorcycle for the first time in eight years.

More importantly, he said, the fall program renewed his faith in humanity.

“I was left for dead on the side of the road,” he said. “So, during my time in this last seven or eight years, I have lost a lot of faith in people. A lot.”

In 2011, a drunken driver pulled in front of Zollicoffer’s 1995 Kawasaki motorcycle on state Route 800. The now retired U.S. Marine Corps and Army National Guard veteran had completed three tours in Iraq and was scheduled for deployment to Afghanistan.

Another person came across the early morning wreck and stopped to help. Zollicoffer, a 53-year-old Canton resident, spent months in a coma and had his left leg amputated at the hip.

This past Veteran’s Day, he received a modified trike at the Makers For Veterans closing ceremony. His family’s safety concerns had kept Zollicoffer from pursuing a costly trike, but they talked and accepted what it meant to him beforehand.

He’s taken a few rides.

“I can’t even describe the feeling, when you get that wind blowing through your hair,” joked Zollicoffer, who has a shaved head.

Makers for Veterans

The Colorado-based nonprofit Challenge America began the Makers for Veterans program (CAMVETS) in 2019. It brought together volunteers with various expertise to solve challenges posed by veterans.

Dallas Blaney, executive director of Challenge America, said the inspiration came from a similar initiative in Israel. Challenge America members participated in the international program and wanted to recreate the experience in the United States.

Blaney described it as “human-centered design applied to the veterans space.” The process begins by asking participants, selected from across the nation, what they want to do that they haven’t been able to.

“That forces the veterans to frame their challenges in a positive way,” Blaney said.

A team — built “from scratch” — with skills relevant to the individual’s challenge then meet at a kickoff event. That is followed by about eight weeks of planning and work culminating in a three-day workshop.

CAMETS then works with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and other partners to identify prototypes to patent and undergo additional product development.

“So that we can get those promising solutions out to market where other veterans and civilians, too, can benefit from these things,” Blaney said.

CAMVETS coordinated a spring and fall program. From 17 total projects, Blaney said, the partners produced 15 working prototypes and, so far, filed for five provisional patents.

Blaney said a digital service dog application designed to help a veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder is expected to be the first product ready for market.

Both programs were held in the Cleveland area, not far from where Blaney grew up. He said the region has a great blend of medical, manufacturing, entrepreneurial, academic and innovative institutions.

The Cleveland Clinic, Bio Enterprise and St. Edward High School are some of CAMVETS’ partners.

“It just seemed like such an amazing fit, and it’s a very friendly place to do business,” Blaney said.

The nonprofit likely will host another program in Northeast Ohio this year, but only one. He said CAMVETS plans to expand to a new city.

Zollicoffer’s custom trike

De Ann Williams, executive director of the Stark County Veterans Service Commission, heard about a CAMVETS opening during a conference and nominated Zollicoffer. It was the first she’d heard about the organization, but she thought the program might produce a longer-lasting prosthetic leg.

Zollicoffer used to play basketball and entered the program thinking he’d leave with a prosthetic for athletic activities.

“With the level of my amputation, that was close to impossible,” he said. “So they started asking questions.”

Zollicoffer, who grew up riding motorcycles, then told his team he’d like to ride again.

“As a motorcycle enthusiast myself, I understood and respected that,” Williams said.

Zollicoffer worked ’hand-in-hand” with his team as the plan evolved — from modifying his prosthetic leg to modifying a three-wheeled motorcycle. However, he said he wasn’t privy to the end product until the Veteran’s Day reveal.

When he was asked to visit a Harley Davidson store as the project wound down, Zollicoffer began to wonder if he’d get a new trike. He later learned that sitting on a $35,000 motorcycle was more for measurement.

The engineers, students and other makers on Team Z turned a two-wheel 1972 Harley Davidson into a trike by replacing the rear portion with wheels from a 1978 Mustang. They also moved the typical, left-side motorcycle gears to the right.

“So, it was a totally customized job,” Zollicoffer said.

Community comes together

After he saw the trike, Zollicoffer saw the executive director of the Stark County Veterans Service Commission.

“I turned around and there’s De Ann standing there,” he said. “That’s when it became clear to me that the whole outreach team got together and they did this thing.”

CAMVETS has paid the “lion share” of most projects, Blaney said. The local commission, though, was tasked with raising $5,000 to buy the bike, which was complemented by donated parts.

Williams said she believes the plan to have the bike donated didn’t work out, so the commission reached out to area service organizations. They had the money within a few days.

“I was just beside myself,” she said. “I couldn’t believe the community came together like that.”

The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter 38 was the major donor. Others were American Legion Post 548, American Veterans Post 124, and Coyote Motorsports.

DAV Commander David May said the project aligned with the group’s mission to assist disabled veterans.

“We’re happy to do it,” he said.

Those involved with CAMVETS said they were glad to learn of the program and plan to volunteer or recommend it to other veterans in the future. Zollicoffer said he made “lifelong friends.”

“We’ll definitely stay in touch with CAMVETS,” Williams said. “I think that that’s definitely going to be a partnership that I hope lasts for a long time.”

So This is What Complete Streets Comes Down To?

By | General Posts

 

The Complete Streets Act of 2019, U.S. House Bill 3663, is creating a lot of rhetorical questions on our part. In NMA E-Newsletter #552, the title question was “An Appropriate Balance for Whom?” in response to the bill’s declaration that the needs of walkers and bike riders must be accommodated before those of drivers on all new and improvement road projects. That edict would force a script flip of how Americans travel daily.

A recent article in the ITE (Institute of Transportation Engineers) Journal gives us a glimpse into one such bizarre road design. Let’s start with two images of the advisory bike lane (ABL) concept outlined in the Journal:

 

There is a single lane for two-way motorized traffic, and two bike lanes outside of that center lane dedicated to bicyclists heading in opposing directions. When vehicles approach each other head-on in the middle, the drivers both move into the bike lanes temporarily. No safety issues there for bicyclists, and no blame for motorists who are trying to avoid a direct collision without bumping angry, blind-spot riders off of their bikes, right?

We referred to ABLs as a concept a bit earlier. But according to Michael Williams, a consultant writing for the ITE Journal, this design ─ which he also refers to as “edge lane roads” ─ is operational in more than two dozen locations in North America. The application is targeted for urban or suburban roads with average annual daily traffic of 6,000 vehicles or less.

And, one presumes, a proportional number of bicyclists. That would be, according to data on daily modes of transportation from the 2016 U.S. Census, approximately 20 cars or trucks for every individual bicycle on the road.

That ratio significantly understates the number of vehicles vs. bicyclists on the road at any given time, considering that the average daily trip (distance and time) by car is longer than by bicycle. At the recent national conference on Vision Zero and Road Diets sponsored by the NMA in Los Angeles, attendees played a little game. When looking out the glass windows of our meeting venue onto bustling Venice Boulevard, which recently had gone through its own forced restriction of car lanes, we counted five bicyclists traveling in the west bike lane over the course of about an hour.

This is why we must defeat the Complete Streets Act of 2019 and similar efforts to restrict driving to absurd levels. Watch for continuing NMA email alerts and e-newsletters about the role you can play in helping us do just that.

Seven Major Smart City Trends For 2020

By | General Posts
The standout trend is #6, “Mobility hubs and car-free zones”, discussed in several articles on TN. Banning cars from city centers and forcing people onto foot, bicycle, scooter or mass transit will be huge in 2020. This meme was originally hatched in the Agenda 21 program in 1992, but is now becoming a reality. ⁃ TN Editor

It’s the turn of a new decade, and following a wild year of transformation in 2019, the 2020s are bound to face more innovation, speculation and security risks than ever before.

To help start the year off right, Smart Cities Dive has gathered insights from industry leaders to identify the trends that are expected to influence the smart city space in 2020.

1. Investors will pump more money into flying cars

The new year will likely be momentous for investments in electric vertical take-off and landing aircrafts (eVTOL)​, or “flying cars.”

Uber pledged to start testing its Uber Air flying taxi service in 2020, and even projected eVTOLs will be mainstream as soon as 2023. The company’s Elevate Summit in June also cemented its promise to stir things up in the industry by announcing plans to conduct public tests of the vehicles in Dallas, Los Angeles, and Melbourne, Australia, on top of showcasing its plans for “skyports” where the vehicles would land and take off.

2. Cities will see fewer scooter operators on streets as companies consolidate

The rapid descent of scooter operators on city streets will slow down in 2020. Instead, the industry should expect to experience more consolidation.

That trend is already taking shape in Washington, DC, one of the first cities to majorly embrace dockless bikes and scooters.

3. More cities will turn to building electrification

It’s no secret buildings are responsible for a massive portion of city emissions. San Jose, CA became the largest city in the country this year to ban natural gas infrastructure from many new residential buildings. The city’s ordinance went into effect on Jan. 1, and includes a requirement to have 70% electric vehicle (EV) capable parking spaces; 20% EV ready parking spaces; and 10% EV supply chain equipment spaces.

The San Jose ordinance followed Berkeley, CA, which was the first U.S. city to pass such a ban in new buildings.

4. City dwellers will demand stronger data privacy

One of the most widely-watched city data privacy debates in 2019 was with Sidewalk Labs’ proposed Quayside project. The futuristic smart city received some of its strongest criticism due to concerns over data privacy, and eventually promised not to sell personal data or leverage it for advertising in response to pushback.

5. Cities will crack down on cyberattacks 

The past year was also marked by a number of cyberattacks against city governments, which should lead to more cities cracking down on how they protect their systems.

Cities have increasingly become targets for attacks due in part to their lack of substantial cybersecurity networks, with most states allocating under 3% of their IT budgets to cyberthreat prep.

6. Mobility hubs and car-free zones will be more widely considered

Major strides were made to discourage car use in 2019, particularly by eliminating cars in some of cities’ busiest areas. London, for example, planned a car-free day smack dab in the city center. And the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors approved a plan to ban cars along the downtown area of Market Street, encouraging biking and bus trips instead. New York recently banned cars on 14th Street in Manhattan for a dedicated “busway,” and Washington, DC is even exploring a car-free zone.

7. The climate wakeup call for greener (and bigger) investments will grow

The summer of 2019 was a “wakeup call” for many cities, according to Bloomberg Associates’ Adam Freed.

The extreme heat forced leaders to recognize the “need to correct the catastrophe of urban planning over the past century that has turned our cities into ovens and focus on ways to provide urban cooling that doesn’t increase our air conditioning load,” he said.
