Bikernet sponsor EMD called us in the middle of the night (they are in France and don’t seem to grasp the concept of time difference) to tell us about the newest addition to their line of cast aluminum covers. Fresh from the foundry is this very first sample of a cam cover that will change the look of Sportster engines forever.
Full production is just around the corner and these puppies will be available in the US very soon. In the meantime, check out the rest of the EMD line by hitting the banner below.
And Speeds up Everyday Service Work.
We ran into a section of the S&S display in Cincinnati at the V-Twin Expo, called Viola V-Twin and we were immediately curious. We met with Bruce Tessmer and discussed it briefly. Here is the official description: S&S Cycle is extremely pleased to offer a selection of high quality service parts for Harley-Davidson and other American v-twin motorcycles. Viola V-Twin! Anyone familiar with S&S Cycle will recognize the name of the small village of Viola, Wisconsin that has been our home since 1969. S&S is best known for performance products, but Viola V-Twin is specifically designed to provide the parts needed for everyday repairs and motorcycle maintenance.

Last Aug. 3, Polaris Industries unveiled the newest Indian Classic, Vintage, and Chieftain Motorcycles to the public in downtown Sturgis.
The new Indian Motorcycle Sturgis website said that everyone who knows the great Indian Motorcycle lore knows the story of C.F. “Pappy” Hoel, the Sturgis Indian Motorcycle dealer. “Pappy” was instrumental in organizing the first motorcycle hill climbs and races in Sturgis. Those early races starting in 1938, gave rise to the iconic, world famous Sturgis motorcycle rally.
“Coming May 1st, Indian Motorcycle Sturgis will once again offer the Thunder, Beauty, and Glory of the brand new, 2014 Indian Motorcycle product line,” the website announces.
Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines rider Andrew Hines raced a Harley-Davidson V-Rod to his first win of the season at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway. Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines rider Ed Krawiec finished second in the final round to complete a sweep of the top two finishing positions in the four-wide format unique to this event that has the first- and second-place rider in each heat advance to the next round of eliminations.
“I’m still not a big fan of four-wide drag racing, and I told everyone I’d be happy when this weekend was over,” said Hines, who leaves Charlotte with the Pro Stock Motorcycle points lead. “But I’m even happier to be leaving here with a Wally. I’ve never even won a round in four-wide racing before today.”
