Good Morning America Shoot on Motorcycling the Mountains To Air This Sunday!– This past Monday, November 9, 2009, Good Morning America weekend anchor, Bill Weir, made his way to the mountains of Western North Carolina to ride the famed Dragon aboard the new Indian motorcycle for a 6 minute segment for one of America’s number one morning news and talk shows. Focusing on Western North Carolina as one of the premier motorcycle destinations in the country, the segment will air during Good Morning America’s weekend broadcast on Sunday, November 15.

The Dragon, a stretch of U.S. Highway 129 from North Carolina to Tennessee which contains over 318 curves in 11 миль, is renowned as one of the area’s premier motorcycling roads and plays host to hundreds of thousands of riders annually. During the segment, Weir met with several representatives from the new Indian Motorcycle Company, and took a ride on the challenging stretch of Hwy 129 aboard the newest incarnation of America’s first motorcycle brand.

Located in Kings Mountain, НЗ, the Indian Motorcycle Company is the newest of few America motorcycle companies and has been developing the re-emergence of the brand since 2005.

Wheels Through Time Museum curator, Dale Walksler, of Maggie Valley, NC was also along for the shoot, to highlight a bit of history on the Indian Motorcycle, and to join the ride aboard one of the museum’s 300+ vintage motorcycles. It was an honor to play a role in this weeks Good Morning America shoot, said Walksler. Anything that we can do to bring more tourism to the mountains is a win for everyone, and GMA choosing to highlight motorcycle tourism brings some of our area’s best offerings to one of our largest demographics.

For more information on Good Morning America’s shoot at The Dragon, visit the museum’s website at

Now Its Official: Santa Monica Pier Designated Western Point Of Route 66It seems we knew that all along, but finally, after 83 йыл, the Santa Monica Pier was officially designated the official Western Terminus of Route 66 this Wednesday in a ceremony at the Southern California landmark, where a replica of the once lost ?End of the Trail? sign was unveiled by local dignitaries and civic officials.

The ceremony was preceded by a processional motorcade of 66 vintage cars and motorbikes that drove the final western tip of the highway, beginning at Santa Monica Blvd. and Lincoln Blvd. and ending on the Santa Monica Pier.

The official designation of the Santa Monica Pier as the West Coast?s end to Route 66 during the Pier?s centennial year was developed in partnership with the Santa Monica Convention and Visitors Bureau, Route 66 Alliance, 66 to Cali Inc. and the Santa Monica Pier Restoration Corporation to acknowledge a commonly held public perception that the pier was the end of the historic roadway, although never officially recognized.

?This Veterans Day marks the 83rd anniversary of Route 66, and we are proud to on this day unite the nation once again from Illinois to California by commemorating the national link the ?Main Street of America? delivered so many years ago. said Jim Conkle, chair of the Route 66 Alliance. We believe that unveiling this sign at the iconic Santa Monica Pier today will resonate deeply with those across the country who are passionate about the roadway?s enduring legacy.?

The sign?s unveiling was a tribute to a historic and famous sign that read ?End of the Trail? that once stood overlooking the Santa Monica Pier during the 1930s. Although long ago disappeared, the sign played a role in creating the national public opinion that the end of Route 66 was at the Santa Monica Pier, even though the official terminus was under debate throughout the road?s history.

MILWAUKEE (Nov. 11, 2009). Screamin? Eagle/Vance Hines rider Eddie Krawiec knows all about come-from-behind victories.

Last season, Krawiec arrived at the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in Pomona, Calif. 19 points out of first place in the Countdown to the Championship, yet managed to power his Harley-Davidson V-Rod motorcycle to the Pro Stock Motorcycle title when the leader faltered. and Krawiec stayed steady. in Sunday eliminations.

On Thursday, Krawiec returns to Pomona for the Finals as the defending champion, but faces the challenge of overcoming a 54-point deficit to Buell rider and points lead Hector Arana.

?No question we are going to need Hector to stumble. said Krawiec. It?s his race to lose. But if he makes a mistake, I?m going to be there to take advantage. This is drag racing and a lot can happen.

We are not out of this championship chase yet.?

To take home the title, Krawiec knows that the Screamin? Eagle/Vance and Hines team needs to come off the trailer red-hot for the first rounds of qualifying on Thursday.

?We?d really like to do well in qualifying and earn enough bonus points to cut Arana?s lead to just two elimination rounds, or 40 points. said Krawiec. We?d need to be the quickest bike in each qualifying round, and hope that he never does better than fourth. That would give us 12 bonus points, plus the bonus for being top qualifier.

There?s also the possibility, with the temperature predicted to be only be in the 60s, of setting a new class ET record, which is worth a 20-point bonus. There?s really a lot that can happen.

?The bottom line is that we just have to do our best and continue to race the way we have all season. said Krawiec. If we race as well as we can, we can?t be disappointed no matter what happens.?

Screamin? Eagle/Vance Hines rider Andrew Hines, who won his third event of the season on Nov. 1 at Las Vegas, comes to Pomona 153 points behind Arana and out of contention for the title.

But the three-time world champion is just 38 points ahead of Suzuki rider Matt Smith in the race for third place in the season standings.

?I?m racing to hold on to that third position, and look for an opportunity to help Eddie bring home the title again this year. said Hines. The Screamin? Eagle team will be racing hard all weekend.?

The Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals will take place at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, Calif. with qualifying rounds on Nov. 12-14, and final eliminations scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 15.

The ScreaminEagle/Vance Hines Pro Stock Motorcycle team is sponsored by Matco Tools, Dunlop and S100.

Roland Sands Design on Display (Right in Your Store) — Not content just creating radicals parts and doo-dads for custom V-twins and sportbikes, the evil geniuses over at Roland Sands Design are cooking up some new POP displays to help dealers showcase the merchandise. Additionally, the company has also come up with new packaging for the products that helps create a unified look that can more easily be merchandised within the dealership.

For dealers interested in the new displays but don’t want to break the bank, RSD is working on a sales program for ordering the POP, says Cameron Brewer, the company’s product coordination specialist. Brewer was manning the RSD booth during the Parts Unlimited/Drag Specialties Reno Showcase in early November.

The displays are designed to hold several RSD products, including a new lineup of casual apparel the company is launching. Interchangeable panels depicting RSD’s latest ad campaign are inserted on all sides of the display.

Brewer says the company is working to make it easier for dealers to merchandise and sell the RSD line, an approach that also has the custom parts manufacturer retooling many of its popular products to lower their MSRP. We’re starting to look for more pricepoint items, уның һөйләүенсә .

Once a month, the company will pick the best pic or video and feature it on the official Roland Sands Design blog (RSD Blog). The RSD crew will also award a $100 gift certificate to one of the first five customers to get 10,000 hits on their video.

Ex-NYC police commissioner freed on bailFormer New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik walked out of federal court a free man Tuesday. But a federal judge assured the now-convicted Kerik that it?s a temporary situation. Two weeks after revoking Kerik?s bail for violating a court order, Judge Stephen C. Robinson in White Plains reinstated Kerik?s bail Tuesday, upping his bond to about $1.5 million from $500,000 and ordering him confined to his home in New Jersey.

Robinson told Kerik that getting out of jail Tuesday would only mean more time on the back end of his sentence.

I think it?s fair to say that it?s a mortal lock that there will be jail time at the end of this, Robinson said during a bail hearing.

Kerik pleaded guilty Thursday to eight felonies stemming from two indictments that accused him of public corruption, tax fraud and lying to White House officials who vetted him for two Homeland Security positions, including secretary of the department. Kerik?s lawyers and federal prosecutors agreed that the likely prison sentence would be from 27 өсөн 33 months though he faces up to 61 years by statute.

Kerik ignored reporters? questions as he strode down the courthouse steps, adjusted his cufflinks and climbed into a waiting black Chevrolet Suburban. He said nothing in court, either, though he appeared more relaxed. laughing and joking with his lawyers. than at any time since Sept. 28, when Robinson was made aware that Kerik had given confidential case documents to a New Jersey lawyer who used the information to craft an e-mail to The Washington Times that was never published.

Robinson ordered Kerik jailed Oct. 20 over the infraction. Stress from his stay at the Westchester County jail caused Kerik to check himself in to the jail?s psychiatric ward for 10 days.

Robinson warned Kerik on Tuesday that he wasn?t doing himself any favors by asking for bail now, noting that whatever time he spends in Westchester County jail awaiting sentencing gets subtracted from whatever sentence he gives him. In some ways it?s postponing the inevitable, Robinson said.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Elliott Jacobson said federal prosecutors and Kerik?s lawyers had been in bail package negotiations since Kerik?s guilty plea last week. He said there was some concern that Kerik could be a risk of flight. Kerik?s sentencing is scheduled for Feb.

THE BIKERNET UNIVERSITY FINANCIAL STUDY FINDINGSOne day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, How was the trip?

It was great, Dad.

Did you see how poor people live? the father asked.

Oh yeah, said the son.

Сөнки, tell me, what you learned from the trip? asked the father.

The son answered: I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.

We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us; they have friends to protect them.

The boy’s father was speechless.

Then his son added, Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.

Isn’t perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don’t have.

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!

BIKERNET MEDICAL CENTER EXHAUSTIVE RESEARCH STUDY FINDINGS NOW PUBLIC ALERT– 4 Worst Holiday Appetizers. Holiday parties are notorious for finger foods filled with high-glycemic carbohydrates and unhealthy fats. To help guide you to better nutrition choices this holiday season, follow the advice in my Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid, and use this list of appetizers to avoid:

1. Dips. Skip the creamy, cheesy dips and opt for low-calorie, low-fat fresh salsa instead.

2. Cocktail franks and mini-meatballs. Neither is a good source of lean protein and both can pack a big serving of calories, sodium and saturated fats. Choose peel-and-eat shrimp or sushi instead.

3. Anything fried. From mini-eggrolls and quiche to chicken wings, deep-fried foods contain altered fats that are detrimental to the body. Wholegrain crackers and a small slice of low-fat cheese can satisfy a savory craving with far fewer calories and fat.

4. Foie gras. Its controversial origins aside, foie gras is a high-fat spread that has little nutritional benefit. Give it a pass and choose hummus insteadan animal-friendly source of soluble fiber.

RELAX, here’s 4 Healthy Holiday Appetizers. We went over four appetizers to steer clear of this holiday seasonNow we serve up healthy options for your cocktail plates!

1. Crudit?s. The fiber in veggies will help fill you up, and they provide a nice, satisfying crunch. Choose a spectrum of colors (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots are good choices) and serve with low- or non-fat plain yogurt.

Add some fresh herbs and seasonings for flavor.

2. Mixed nuts. When eaten sparingly, nuts are a terrific snack. Walnuts are a favorite, as they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Almonds and roasted soy nuts are also good choices.

Nuts can be high in calories and fat (even if it’s the healthy monounsaturated kind) so don’t overindulge.

Moto Guzzi V12 LM Concept

3. Smoked salmon. Salmon (especially wild Alaskan sockeye salmon) provides omega-3 fatty acids, the anti-inflammatory, essential fats our bodies need for optimum health.

4. Grilled figs and bleu cheese. Figs are high in fiber and antioxidants, and when combined with a bit of bleu cheese, provide calcium and proteinall in a delicious, easy-to-eat package.

Moto Guzzi introduce three new prototypes around the V12 engineMiguel Galluzzi and Pierre Terblanche are without a doubt two of the most brilliant motorcycle designers out there. The former being an industrial designer born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and the inventor of Ducati’s highly successful Monster family, the latter a native of South Africa and responsible for Ducati’s most controversial and successful models: . 999 and Sport Classic series.

These two have teamed up to center their combined expertise around Moto Guzzi’s legendary in-line twin-cylinder engine. The result are three futuristic V12 prototypes, developed around the 1,200 cc 4-valve 90-degree V-twin from Mandello.

While the company’s tribute to the one engine that turned the Italian brand with the eagle into a myth of motorcycling, Moto Guzzi also intends it to be a reinforcement of its commitment to keep developing and improving its flagship engine for the years to come.

Pierre Terblanche’s prototypes stand out for their minimalist design, utilizing an aluminium cast frame that allows for a simple layout of the bike with compact dimensions. Tank, saddle and tail are integrated into one monocoque structure, combining the fine art of design with technology, style and practicality. Not a single cable is left visible, giving the prototypes and uncluttered appearance.

The V12 models are true to the Moto Guzzi tradition and the brand’s commitment to innovation that goes back nearly nine decades. With these quintessential Italian bikes Moto Guzzi wants to return to their bikes being a statement of style combined with technology. Rather than putting the focus on performance for performance’s sake, the V12s showcase the mechanics, essential design and riding fun.

The prototypes feature innovative details and solutions, like the concept bikes they are. The most noteworthy innovative details are the rear suspension of the V12 LeMans, the LCD rear-view mirrors, the LED light units, the suspended passenger footpegs and the heat sinks.

The Moto Guzzi V12 LM is the Italian sports bike reinvented, true to the legacy of the legend of Le Mans it is named after. This bike is for those who want an exclusive motorcycle to ogle and to own for the utmost riding pleasure. Moto Guzzi claim this bike provides excellent performance under all riding conditions and easy rideability for all to enjoy.

Like the other two versions, the V12 LM combines luxury details like height adjustment for top fairing and handlebars with innovative, yet well-proven components.

The Moto Guzzi V12 STRADA is designed to be the most essential bike and the most versatile model in the V12 range. Perfect for everyday commuting, comfortable for two-up riding, with perfect ergonomics. The touring-style handlebar is matched by a generously sized tail fairing capable of accommodating a passenger comfortably. The V12 Strada sports a range of technical solutions and aesthetic details built around the Moto Guzzi twin-cylinder engine.

The passenger footpegs are connected to the swingarm through a linkage system which makes them look as if floating in midair, enhancing the sleek, uncluttered look of the styling concept.

The Moto Guzzi V12 X is a one-of-a-kind motorcycle, true to the character of the Guzzi twin-cylinder. The focus is on riding fun, enhanced by its aggressive design. The V12 X is intended for aggressive riders who want to push it to the limit.

Born to show off and fun to ride, its spirited personality is highlighted by the aggressive riding position, a sports-like chassis set-up, longer suspension travel and a rev happy engine.

?There is an impalpable, yet very real force in the history of Moto Guzzi. It lies in the ideas and in the unrelenting research work that led Moto Guzzi to build its tradition on innovation. says Miguel Galluzi, Manager of Piaggio’s styling center. Mentioning all the accomplishments of Moto Guzzi and their significance in the history of the Italian motorcycling industry would seem like indulging in some kind of vain celebration.

Throughout its history, Moto Guzzi has put forward a unique concept of motorcycle. Everything started with an idea, and new ideas have always been the lifeblood of the ‘Italian eagle’. He continues with an ambitious promise, that may almost sound a like for the competition. New ideas once again mark a turning point in our history.

The prototypes showcased today are only the beginning: such unparalleled care for detail and neat design would be unthinkable without our twin-cylinder engine. Keep an eye on Moto Guzzi because this is just the first step. We are back to relying on ideas, and we have plenty of them.

This is just the beginning?.

As of this writing, there is no word yet when the production of these models may be anticipated.

PINKY CHARITY BIKE EVENT SHUT DOWNMARSHVILLE. Organizers said it was a bike rally for charity. County officials said it was one in a series of illegal events hosted by Thomas ?Pinky? Marsh.

On Thursday night, Superior Court Judge David Lee signed a temporary restraining order for events on Marsh?s property and ordered sheriff?s deputies to blockade the entrances to the Marshville farm, Plaza de Toros Rio Grande.

?I?ve never been through so much trouble trying to help somebody in my life. said James Parker, the rally organizer.

Marsh has been at odds with the county over the use of his property for two years, holding rodeos there, which the county has said are illegal; an injunction was granted to the county last month. The county says that a special permit is required for events on Marsh?s property ?in which live music, vendors, bike games, camping, bike shows, bike rodeos, and/or disc jockeys with amplified music is involved.?

On a flier, the Old Skool Motorcycle Rally was promoted to have ?live music, Old Skool contest, vendors, bike games, camping, bike show, bike rodeo, DJ, 50/50, Horse racing, tattoo contest, food.?

Marsh said he leased his property to Parker for only $1 for the weekend so they could maximize their donation to Turning Point. He said he was not involved with the event and was not in town Friday.

?I said. I won?t have anything to do with it. he said.

Parker said he plans a biker rally to benefit Turning Point, Union County?s battered women shelter, every year.

He planned this year?s event at Marsh?s farm to coincide with a Toys for Tots drop.

?We didn?t know we needed permits, bottom line. Parker said. All they had to do was tell us we need a permit and we would have gotten one.

It?s all about the county wanting to get in a (expletive deleted) contest with Pinky Marsh over his land.?

Parker said there would be alcohol at the event, but that noise would be shut down by 11 p.m. and everyone would be respectful.

Sheriff Eddie Cathey did not trust that it would be a quiet event. It?s a motorcycle rally. he said, indicating that there would be loud partying all weekend. It?s not going to happen. Period.?

Parker said he did not have a contingency plan worked out because he could not have fathomed that police would shut him down. They got us between a rock and a hard place. he said. The ones that are really going to get hurt are the kids.?

Full Throttle Magazine advertised the event in a list of similar upcoming events. The event this weekend was advertised as the ?OLD SKOOL BIKE RALLY? and did not mention a charity. Other listed events have ?Poker Run.

Toy Run. or ?Ride To Remember? in the title.

WELL, HERE WE AREAnother week flew by in the blink of an eye. We still have some food in the fridge and Jack Daniels in the cupboard. Every weekend there are events and rides. We can still buy some gas, find a beautiful woman, build a very cool bike and ride. Strange times.

I’ve never seen the country so divided politically since the Vietnam war years.

Don’t miss the Cycle Source issue devoted to Indian Larry.

We’re living in hetic times. We’ve got four times as many projects on our plates. I’m building a couple of vintage bikes for Bonneville, finishing a book, starting another one, researching a screenplay about freedom and motorcycling, contributing to magazines, writing like crazy for Bikernet, trying to do my part to keep our industry free by initiating a SEMA motorcycle council, attending community meetings, working out, restoring this old hotel from 1925 we live in and what else?

Edge invited me on the Long Road ride across country next year, from Smoke Out West to Smoke Out East.

I tell myself every year to slow down, then take on a half-dozen new projects. I suppose it keeps life vibrant, but I know we need to slow down enough to get involved in the important stuff, like keeping motorcycles free. If they pass this healthcare business, it’s going to be tougher on us. Even now, they’re trying to insert amendments restricting smokers, women who want abortions, and what else? That’s all we hear about on the tube.

Ҡарап. We need to make the time to join our local motorcycle rights groups and follow the fight.

In the meantime let’s party.
