#5 IN A LIST OF REASONS TO UPDATE YOUR MOTORCYCLE SUSPENSION

5) Brake dive blows. That diving sensation you get when you come to a stop light and the stock front suspension rapidly compresses and starts making clunky sounds as it hits bottom is a bad thing. OEM suspension is a compromise at best, as the factory has no idea how much you weigh or how hard you will ride. A set of Progressive rate springs or better yet a Monotube Fork Cartridge kit will virtually eliminate brake dive and return a controlled feel to the bike. Look no further than Progressive Suspension for your suspension needs. Hit the banner below and find out what's right for your ride. Advertisement

Barnes Wins AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Race at Infineon

Veteran Racer Takes First AMA Pro Win Since 1996 Veteran racer Michael Barnes, one of the longest tenured riders in the AMA Pro Road Racing paddock, earned an emotional and hard-fought victory in the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 series race at Infineon Raceway Sunday to break a 16-year victory drought. Barnes doggedly pursued his Bartels’ Harley-Davidson/Scrubblade teammate Tyler O’Hara for ten of the race’s eleven laps, never trailing by more than a half-second at the start/finish line, but just as it appeared that O’Hara would deny Barnes victory for the second race in a row, a missed shift by O’Hara exiting the final turn gave Barnes the narrow gap he needed to slip by for the victory. “Tyler’s ...

BANDIT OF THE CARIBBEAN SUNDAY POST FOR MAY 6, 2012

Hey gang, Bandit has flown the coop for a while, leaving the rest of us overworked, underpaid and underappreciated minions completely in charge. Big mistake there, stretch! While the King of the Biker Nation is living it up in the Caribbean, sailing the emerald waters of Martinique, getting hammered on rum and sampling other fine examples of the local agriculture, we will proceed to raid his notoriously well-stocked liquor cabinet. In fact as you read this, most of the mayhem has already occurred. Me and Ray got to the bottom of the aged bourbon and can’t figure out why it’s supposed to cost that much. I guess we’ll need to ponder the question some more as we move on to the ...

Slammed On the Ground And Rides Nice Too?

“How can I slam it on the ground and make it ride better?” We’ve heard this question from bagger owners hundreds of times and for years we told the askers that he or she had to pick one. Not anymore my friends. Now we show them our AirDragger suspension system. By designing a coil/air hybrid with an on board compressor, we’ve created a set of shocks that lets you drop the bike to the bump stops around town and then raise it back up on the open road. The result is not only a great riding bike, but also one that instantly becomes short inseam friendly with a push of a button. Here is the answer. Advertisement
