SAUK CITY, Wis., July 22, 2011—The roads of southern Wisconsin roared with the sound of 1,000 motorcycles last weekend at the 26th Annual MDA Freedom Ride.

Nearly 1,400 motorcycle enthusiasts rallied together July 15-16 for the 70-mile ride to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The two-day event, which raised nearly $85,000 for local MDA clients, began Friday with festivities including a Poker Run, family activities, bike show, dinner and entertainment at VFW Park in Prairie du Sac.

Local MDA clients and their families cheered on the riders with homemade signs of encouragement and thanks as the motorcycles departed from Sauk Prairie Harley-Davidson Saturday afternoon. Clients included Joseph and Ethan Tress, 6 and 1 of Middleton; Annie Heathcote, 12 of Mazomanie; and Andella Armaza, 2 of Madison.

Peggy Nied, along with her daughter and grandson, attended the MDA Freedom Ride to see the riders off in memory of her son, Kyle. Kyle, 23, of Madison, had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and passed away of late last month. According to Peggy, Kyle would have wanted to be there to support the Freedom Ride.

After the ride, many of the children and their families stayed to talk with the riders and thank them for their contribution to MDA. All of the money raised at the Freedom Ride helps clients like Joseph, Ethan, Annie and Andella by financing UW Hospital clinic visits, wheelchair and leg brace repairs, support groups, and a weeklong stay at MDA Summer Camp in Kenosha County.

Riders enjoyed post-ride activities at VFW Park, including a pork chop dinner, bike games, raffles, drinks and entertainment by LUBE. Carol Thompson of Mount Horeb won the grand prize at the raffle and will enjoy a 4-day trip to Las Vegas to see the 2011 MDA Labor Day Telethon.

MDA Freedom Ride coordinators would like to thank the Sauk Prairie Harley Owners Group Chapter members and Sauk Prairie Harley-Davidson employees. Their constant commitment to the cause made the 2011 MDA Freedom Ride an unforgettable event.

 The Freedom Ride is the longest single dealer Harley-Davidson fundraising event to benefit MDA in Wisconsin. Consistently ranked as one of the top 10 Harley-Davidson MDA events in the nation, the ride has raised over $1.8 million net since its inception in 1985.

The MeanStreet Riders Presents Music for the Open Road

The MeanStreet Riders were formed in the fall of 2008 when we were riding our motorcycles through the southern United States on our way to ride one of the most challenging and dangerous roads in the world, Highway 129, also known as “Deals Gap” or “The Dragon”.  An 11 mile stretch of road with 318 curves on the Tennessee/North Carolina border, “The Dragon” is considered a motorcycle legend by riders around the world.The MeanStreet Riders debut LP High on the Hog (due September 13, 2011) stretches across a wide gamut of Rock and Americana.  The album speaks to a culture that sees life, liberty and freedom being challenged more and more everyday in this ever growing and rapidly changing world. The title track is about camaraderie and deep rooted friendship while not being caught up in the status quo.  The ballad “Rolling On” is based on the travels of Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper on their ride filming the movie Easy Rider and deals with getting away from day to day pressures and the pursuit to simply be free and ride with the wind in your hair like they did so long ago. The song “I’ve Had a Good Ride” is based on a return to the Sturgis Rally, the Badlands and riding through the South Dakota hills. In addition to the reunion with old friends theme, the song’s chorus also references real life teachings and not believing everything you hear or read with the line “don’t read all the writing on the wall”.  The song invites you to take life “all in” and enjoy the good times while also taking an inner look at the end of the day or your life and ask yourself have you “Had a Good Ride”. “Where I Was Born” is rich with harmonies and tells the story of a father sharing a ride with his two sons across rural America.

The rest of the LP is nestled deep in Americana rock, with country overtones and arrangements about family, friends, relationships, roads, trips, towns and how the American dream of freedom and its pursuit seems to be continually challenged and shaped by the media, corporations and government bureaucracy.

The incredible growth of the motorcycle community in the past few years is the result of millions of people in the world wanting their freedom back and hitting the road to discover some great times, good friends and maybe… themselves again. The MeanStreet Riders not only speak to those people but people in all walks of life in more than just words and invite them to go somewhere they haven’t been before and discover this great country and world before it might be too late.

Remember: Life’s too short for traffic, so Rock N’ Roll on the open Road.

The Impact

We’ve put a lot of work into this album and we want to share this with you.  We want to get this out to the four corners of this great country so we can share our message and help people rediscover the open road, freedom, and music that speaks to and from the heart.  We want to introduce you to the MeanStreet Riders.

What We Need & What You Get

We’re raising money to do a radio and press campaign.  At our own expense, we’ve put together a great album that we think will really connect with anyone who loves the road, freedom, or even paving their own path.  What we need now is to get the music out there and we can only do that with your help.

What you get out of this will be a combination of great MeanStreet Riders music, merch, and other great perks.  What you get out of this is to help share great music with the world.  What you get out of this is to be part of a great community that cares about real music, real people and real America.

RoadTec Z8 Gets High Marks in Tire Test

Munich, Germany,  In their current July/August 2011 double issue, the editorial board of a German motorcycle travel magazine Motorrad & Reisen recently updated their best tire list. The result was extremely positive for Metzeler: the Roadtec Z8 InteractTM stood at the top having earned 3 out of 4 possible top marks. With the mileage (very good), handling (very good), behavior in curves (good) and the wet performance (very good), the Roadtec Z8 has made a solid showing, together with two competing products.

There was no surprise when the Roadtec Z8 InteractTM brought forth the following comments: “With the Metzeler Roadtec Z8 InteractTM, the rider has everything under control. The tire follows its instincts with an incredible blend of precise and effortless handling. The Roadtec Z8 InteractTM is designed to make driving easier, regardless of the bike – for long and safe riding experiences.”

• The tire’s new contour in combination with a patented tread design improves handling and reduces steering effort significantly, for maximum confidence in all driving situations. An innovative new design: matching the physical profile shape with a tread design inspired by the Greek letter “Pi”, functional in that it increases the flexibility of the profile, thus ensuring optimum tyre contact surface area in all conditions.

• The Multi Zone Tension technology (InteractTM technology) of the 0°steel cord gives the “Z8” long-distance performance and stability along with perfect cornering grip.

• A new composition of the silica component and its dispersion at a nano-scale increases the performance and safety levels in all weather conditions.

“Independent comparative tests from touring magazines like Motorrad and Reisen are critical for establishing also the real-world application of our products. The magazine staff and its readers are riding many kilometers” says Francesco Pietrangeli, Director of Marketing for Metzeler Motorcycle Tires, “enough to offer a valid feedback to tire dealers and consumers on the performances of our newest tire, the Roadtec Z8 InteractTM.”

Scorpion Helping Cops Keep Cool Heads

Lake Forest, CA July 11, 2011) Scorpion has busted out with a “Law Enforcement Edition” of their popular EXO-900 helmet. Available in the standard “H” pattern, the new police special meet the specifications of most motorcycle officer programs in the nation. The added benefit is that the versatile modular helmet now makes for a 3-in-1 option for officers in the field.

“We had several jurisdictions approach us about offering a police helmet which would combine the features of a full-face helmet with the convenience of a modular/flip-up style helmet,” says Scorpion’s National Sales Manager, Jon Eide. “But they also needed a lightweight ¾ open face model for parade duty… which meant they had to have three different helmets.”

The EXO-900 meets all these needs… and more. A polycarbonate composite shell is combined with a state-of-the-art dual density EPS liner. This advanced composite shell is designed to function in three distinct modes: full-face, open face or flip-up. Speaking of flip-up, the entire chinbar and exclusive no-fog EverClear® shield section flips up as one piece. As an added benefit, Scorpion’s built-in retractable SpeedView® internal sun visor can be used in all three modes.

“Whether it is swapping out the outer faceshield or the entire front half of the helmet, the EXO-900 makes its transformation from ¾ open face to full face modular and back again in less than 10 seconds,” explains Eide. “Best of all, these changes can be made without tools!”

 

This shell meets or exceeds all Department Of Transportation FMVSS-218 and National Institute of Justice standards (not to mention ECE-22.05 certification for you civilians). As an added benefit for the police, the EXO-900 is also communications-ready for most radio systems.

Helping the cops keep their cool is Scorpion’s exclusive KwikWick® washable moisture wicking comfort liner. Another innovative inner is the AIRFIT® cheek pad inflation system to ensure the perfect fit. All good news, but even better news for those departments on a budget is the price. Unlike many modulars on the market, the ticket for the EXO-900 is under $280, including Scorpion’s full three-year warranty.

EXO-900 Law Enforcement Edition sizes XS-XXXL

MSRP: $279.95

Zero Motorcycles Expands Sales Channel, Adding Traditional Dealership Model For Enhanced Consumer Retail Experience

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (July 12, 2011) – Zero Motorcycles, the global leader in electric motorcycle technology, today announced the expansion of its current sales model to now include traditional motorcycle dealers as a point of purchase for retail customers. The development of a traditional dealership program has been part of Zero’s strategic plan for more than a year as the company continues to ramp up its manufacturing capabilities. The new dealership experience now provides consumers with a location to see and experience Zero’s expansive and rapidly growing product line all in one place. Eight of the most recognized and largest multi-line dealers have signed on to carry Zero’s entire product line.

 

-Malcolm Smith Motorsports(Riverside, California)

-MotoWorld of El Cajon  (El Cajon, California)

-Escondido Cycle Center (Escondido, California)

-Mission Motorcycles (Daly City, California)

-NorCal MasterCraft (Sacramento/Pleasanton, California)

-Grand Prix Motorsports  (Littleton, Colorado)

-C&C Sports (Brighton, Michigan)

-Hitching Post (Fridley/Hopkins/South St. Paul, Minnesota)

“As we continue adding new motorcycles to our product line-up, consumers are looking to experience our products in more of a traditional retail setting that allows for them to touch and feel all of our bikes in one location and at one time,” said John Lloyd, VP of Global Sales, Zero Motorcycles. “It has always been part of our strategic plan to add multi-line dealerships to the mix and the timing is now right for us to move in this direction. Dealers have been requesting we alter our sales model for the past few years so they could begin selling our products and we are now in a position to successfully do this.”

The new dealership model for Zero will include the United States and Canada as part of the initial rollout and is a major transition in the development of Zero’s distribution model (Canadian dealership partners will be announced in an upcoming release). Zero’s current sales channel is predominately internet-driven through www.zeromotorcycles.com , with consumer test rides being conducted by field representatives.

Now interested buyers can go directly to their nearest Zero Motorcycles dealership to test ride and buy a Zero on-site. Once the official transition is completed, Zero Motorcycles will no longer sell motorcycles directly to consumers, unless purchasing from a powersports dealer is not feasible.
