In an open letter sent out yesterday, AFT CEO Michael Lock writes:

Dear Friends of AFT,

American Flat Track is now producing audience and viewership dashboard reports for all stakeholders – and they tell a compelling story.

These reports, the first of which is attached here and downloadable via the link below, help shed light on the growth and health of our sport, which is measurable by the size and makeup of the audience we reach and entertain.

In the three years since 2015 we have risen from 193,000 total season fans (event ticket buyers and FansChoice.tv viewers) to 2,695,952 so far in 2018 – and with five telecasts and four rounds still to go!

Our viewership and fanbase isn’t just expanding, it’s also becoming more diverse. Our regional fanbase is spreading, as well, and rider-counts on track this year are up, too.

We are enjoying an era of rapid growth: more manufacturers competing, more sponsors and supporters becoming involved, and better social media content ensuring our message gets out quicker and to more people.

I invite you to download this dashboard report and take a look at what we’ve all accomplished. I’m hoping it’ll inspire everyone in our community to continue the hard – and fun – work that will make 2019 and beyond even better for everyone – paddock, sponsors, AFT and fans alike.

Thanks for all your contributions and your support for AFT,

Micheal Lock

For the parent, especially the moto-parent, who wants their child to have the trickest balance bicycle out there, Strider brings you the ST-R. Cost? $899.99. Because your kid needs a carbon fiber balance bike.

Begin press release:


You could go out and get your child some bike with a bunch of flashy sounds and noise and shoddy plastic handlebar shield that vaguely represents a superhero. But you know better than that.

If Luxury and Performance got together and decided to create the pinnacle of what a Strider 12 Bike should be, they’d make the Strider ST-R. Sleek? Yes. Elegant? Double yes. Lightweight? Triple yes. Totally, incredibly, jaw-dropping, head-turning, amazingness on two wheels? A gajillion times yes.

So let’s skip the marketing mumbo jumbo for a minute. Check this out. The Strider ST-R has a carbon fiber frame with a carbon fiber fork and carbon steerer. The headset is a Cane Creek AER with bearings. We also threw in a custom stem, handlebar, grips, and seat clamp. Then we thought about what else we could add. How about Schwalbe “Big Apple” tires? That do anything for ya? Top it off with 10-spoke carbon fiber rims that scream style. Then we added custom Strider alloy hubs with cartridge bearings and a thru-axle. The ST-R is magnificently lean and mean, and there’s no telling what your little one can accomplish when they get into the saddle.

With the Strider ST-R, your little speedster will blaze a trail of fiery epicness that will make everyone on the race track drool (not counting the ones who are teething). The Strider ST-R is for those little speed demons who won’t compromise speed for comfort and luxury. They keep racing once they’ve crossed the finish line, and they fall asleep dreaming about the need for speed on a bike built for performance. They don’t have time to pause for a juice box break, because, let’s face it…ain’t nobody got time for that.

For more information visit the Strider site, and click here to join the waitlist.

Even if you weren’t around yet in 1978, most motorcycle fans are aware of Mike the Bike Hailwood’s out-of-retirement win at the 1978 Isle of Man TT, on a very special Ducati. Now  Ducati have given permission for the bevel-drive Ducati experts at Vee Two to build 12 replicas of that machine, made possible by Brook Henry’s acquisition of the original drawings that laid out the Hailwood bike’s very special and stout 905 cc motor.

Meanwhile, Paul Taylor of Taylor Made Racing, in beautiful Van Nuys, CA, will be responsible for the bodywork and appearance of the bike, a responsibility he takes extremely seriously. If you have to ask, you probably can’t afford one, but you can read all about the project – including what Mike kept stuffed inside that tennis ball – here.

INDIAN MOTORCYCLE ANNOUNCES 2019 SCOUT® LINEUP

Expanded ABS Offering, New Paint Options & USB Charging Port Headline Upgrades to 2019 Indian Scout Lineup

MINNEAPOLIS (August 27, 2018) – Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company founded in 1901, today announced its 2019 Scout lineup with new paint options on Scout Sixty, Scout and Scout Bobber.

The charging port is located near the speedometer for easy access.

“The iconic Indian Scout family is a favorite amongst riders across the globe,” said Reid Wilson, Senior Director for Indian Motorcycle. “Since the addition of the Scout Bobber in July 2017, we’ve continued to evolve our Scout offering to meet the tastes of various riders, whether they prefer the classic, heritage-inspired look of Scout Sixty and Scout or the stripped-down, blacked-out attitude of Scout Bobber. The refinements we’ve made for 2019 and the new paint options accentuate the wide appeal of the Scout line.”

Color options for the Scout Sixty, which packs a 60-cubic-inch, liquid-cooled and blacked-out engine, include Thunder Black, White Smoke, Ruby Metallic and Star Silver over Thunder Black.

Rounding out the lineup is the aggressively-styled Scout Bobber, now offered in Thunder Black, Thunder Black Smoke, White Smoke and Bronze Smoke.

For current Scout owners looking to add the benefits of the USB charging port, Indian Motorcycle will now offer a USB Charging Port Kit, which can be installed on any 2015-2018 Scout or Scout Bobber model and any 2016-2019 Scout Sixty model.

Written by Martin Hodgson
They’re one of the leading motorcycle builders in Italy, restoring classic bikes to their former glory and creating some of the best customs in the land. Yet for all the success that Rome’s Emporio Elaborazioni Meccaniche has had, can you believe they’ve never built a Ducati as part of their “special” line up? Well, Dopz, Schizzo and the crew thought it was about time when the right customer came calling and to pop their cherry they knew they had to go hard! Inspired by the classic racing machines of the ’70s, it’s a 1978 Ducati Darmah 900 cafe racer sensation they call Crono.

Despite the cafe’s now automotive museum quality looks and brilliant performance, the donor bike that the customer rolled into the central Rome workshop was anything but. Wherever it was wheeled it left a trail of oil and the smell of weeping fuel. But given the popular nature of the classic 2 valve L-Twin Desmo engine the flaws and fixes are well-known and the motor was quickly up on the bench. Sharing a great deal in common with the 900SS, the engine would be the first part of the bike that would be shifted in the Super Sport direction away from the touring orientated donor of the Darmah.

The engine was torn down to the very last bolt as the first step of the build and rebuilt to ensure the oil would remain on the inside no matter the rpm. The gorgeous workings of the upper bevel have been exposed, while the front cylinder that is normally far less pretty thanks to the tacho drive has been completely cleaned up. New carbs replace the small versions fitted to the Darmah from the factory and make one hell of a roar through the short stacks. While individual mandrel bent stainless pipes take care of the exhaust gas and finished out in polished mufflers elicit an incredible sound.

With the engine sitting pretty it was the classic Ducati frame that was the next piece to receive attention and the wheelbase is shortened to match the faster steering SS. There is also plenty of weight to be removed and any excess metal has been cut off and thrown away with no need for the extra long subframe to support the old two up seat. The classic race tail takes its place, perfectly fabricated from incredibly thin aluminium to keep the weight as low as possible. The frenched in tail light maintains the minimal look and the seat provides just enough padding.

“The Italian’s sure know how to do sexy.”
The cafe’s tank was an easy choice, the customer desired it, the look called for it and EEM’s first bike to make an impact on the scene featured one too. “The tank is the same as our pretty famous 2012, XJR Mastino” smiles Dopz, recalling the bike featured years ago now on Pipeburn. The all alloy Ducati Imola item is a thing to behold, the unpainted metal lines just begging for you to run your hands over each curve. The Italian’s sure know how to do sexy and despite the bare finish their national pride sees the tricolor run across the top. But rarely do the supporting components of a motorcycle also look so good; on Crono they not only add to vastly improved functionality, they’re a feast for the eyes.

With the help of a set of stunning machined triple clamps a set of Ceriani front forks have been adapted to fit. At the rear new Wilburs progressive rate coil over shocks provide a radical improvement over stock without taking away at all from the classic look. But if the suspension has you impressed its the brakes that draw the eye and are simply a sight to behold! Used by many a racer of old the Fontana four leading shoe front setup is simply beautiful and a set this good is worth a small fortune. They’re heavy old things but despite their age work remarkably well and to ensure they’re mated to another old favourite, stainless spokes lace them to Borrani rims front and rear.

An Avon tyre at the front and Bridgestone Battlax rear make for the perfect compromise of excellent grip with a not too modern tread pattern. The rear hub and brake setup is just as impressive but as the boys explain providing activation was the biggest obstacle. “One of the most interesting built parts is the way the rear drum brake works. We passed from a fluid brake to an old cycle-like cable brake. Dopz produced different solutions but was not good enough for the Emporio stress test. The fourth solution (the simpler one) worked great! A simple small lathed pulley that brings the cable from the right foot to brake on the left part of the bike.”

A German Motogadget speedo cools down all that Italian passion
That foot presses down on a new pedal setup that is part of the rear sets that stay true to the old factory racer appeal. For hand controls its more exotics parts from yesteryear with Menani race bars attached to the forks and equipped with a Tommaselli throttle. The built-in lever supports just add to the eye candy and the exposed sheathed cables once again are a brilliant example of the way EEM can take a small functional component and make it look, well, Bellissimo! The yellow battery is a tip of the cap to the flamboyant colours used in the ’70s but like much of the new wiring loom is hidden by the hand-made side covers.

Up on the custom clamps is a brilliantly executed lock and start button combo with a single switch to illuminate the headlamp. “Did you notice the wrench in the front drum brakes and also the cafe’s headlight is from a Citroen 2CV?” winks Dopz. Knowing once again the Emporio Elaborazioni Meccaniche team has hit it out of the ball park with a truly incredible build and still managed to have their own bit of fun along the way. All done in the centre of one of the world’s truly great cities, our Roman rebels are now Ducatisti for life.
