Broc Glover's Breathe Easy Ride Against Cystic Fibrosis


Join the 1st Annual Broc Glover's Breathe Easy Ride Against Cystic Fibrosis

On Sunday, March 30, 2008, motorcycling enthusiasts can ride alongside some
of their favorite racing legends in a fun street ride to benefit a great
cause. This event is the 1st Annual Broc Glover's Breathe Easy Ride Against
Cystic Fibrosis, and it takes in about 100 miles of scenic backcountry
roads through the hills of northern San Diego and southern Riverside
counties. The ride begins and ends in Temecula, CA, and includes
motorcycling celebrities, food, beverages, prizes and more—including a
Jesse Rooke custom Harley-Davidson as Grand Prize!

Motocross racing legend and AMA Hall of Fame member Broc Glover is the
moving force behind this event, and for good reason: His son Dayne has been
diagnosed as having Cystic Fibrosis, a cruel and life-shortening disease.
So now Glover is bringing to bear the intensity and focus that made him a
renowned MX competitor into the fight against CF.

"Before our son, Dayne, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, I had barely
heard of the disease,” Glover says. "I am reaching out with a goal to
increase awareness and raise research funds for the Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation, an organization that has taken the lead in raising funds and
promoting research towards a cure. We are not talking about research that
will take place in years to come; we are talking about breakthrough
research that is happening right now. The cost of conducting research is
extraordinarily expensive, yet it’s literally extending the lives of CF
patients today, including my son—so this work is very effective and
extremely personal.

"Our family has been overwhelmed by the support and generosity the entire
motorcycling community is demonstrating with this event. It is truly
awesome what amazing people motorcyclists are, a caring group that embraces
all participants as part of their own extended family. We have been truly
touched by the huge response we are receiving for this event."

Maria Olson, Executive Director of the San Diego chapter of the Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation, added, “When the Foundation was started in 1955,
children were not expected to live to make it to elementary school. Today
the average life expectancy of CF patients has risen to 37 years. The
Foundation’s roots began with the parents of children with CF; there is no
government funding for this disease, it relies strictly on private
donations. Our business model is like no other charity; we take the funds
we raise and directly approach biotech and pharmaceutical companies to
conduct research on behalf of CF. More than 90 cents of every dollar raised
goes directly to research.”

A host of racing greats and other motorcycling personalities will be
joining Glover for this event:

Mike Bell: 1980 AMA Supercross champion and factory Yamaha racer.

Roger DeCoster: Five-Time Motocross World Champion and des Nations
Champion. Roger’s 30-year-old nephew is afflicted with Cystic Fibrosis.

Gevin Fax: model, actress, musician and motorcycle enthusiast. She annually
performs the National Anthem at Love Ride and Beach Ride.

Betsy Huelskamp of WRN, Easyrider magazine and the Discovery Channel's
“Biker Women” and “Everest Beyond the Limit.”

Rick Johnson: One of the greatest AMA motocross and Supercross racers of
all time.

Danny LaPorte: 1979 500cc Motocross National Champion, member of first U.S.
winning Motocross des Nations team and 250cc Motocross World Champion.

Eddie Lawson: Four-time World Road Racing Champion.

Jeremy McGrath: Supercross legend, 10-time champion.

Roland Sands: National Champion road racer turned custom bike builder.

In addition, famous bike builder Jesse Rooke will be joining the group and
has also created a specially customized Harley-Davidson motorcycle that
will be given away to one lucky winner as the Grand Prize in addition to
other prizes awarded at the conclusion of the ride. Famed announcer Larry
Huffman will MC the event. Also, there will be an online auction connected
with this event that will feature motorcycle memorabilia including a
Valentino Rossi-autographed AGV helmet, MX gear from Chad Reed, Ryan
Villopoto, Jeremy McGrath and more, plus a Jason Pridmore 2-day STAR riding

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
