help fight this lunacy from Washington. Please go here and send a letter to you elected representatives. They do all the work!

racing Super Bikes for Suzuki. Rich plans on becoming a racing instructor and has an offer to do instruction at
Keith Code's California Superbike School. I asked Rich if he might like to do a "Sport Bike Riding Clinic" for some of our
club members if we had enough interest. He agreed it might be fun. He even offered us his time and expertise for "no fee" for
this pilot program for the club this first time. Please email me or see me (Jeff W.) at the club meeting Thursday if you are
interested in doing this. Also let me know if there are any specific topics of interest you would like covered if we do this. Rich
was initially thinking the performance aspects of sport bikes in relation to street riding, including bike setup, but he is open
to ideas. Sounds like a great opportunity for our club members, even if you don't ride a "sport" bike!

8/13/09 Orange County Choppers Builds Electric Motorcycle We all love the internal combustion engine. And it has
a lot of life left in it. But the electrics are coming! Not just in cars, but motorcycles too. Wired.com has this story on the an
EV motorcycle O.C.C. built for Siemens. Sorry Harley guys, no exhaust to replace with a louder one so we can all hear
how "bad ass" you are. This follows some other electrics, including one from Mission Motors, and the EV-0 RR
announced a few months ago. And the Zero MX electric motocross bike from Zero Motorcycles, a very low noise bike.
Here is a cool video on it from Jay Leno's Garage. Remember too, electric motors have maximum torque at zero RPM,
hit the throttle and there is no wait for the engine to reach 7000 or 8000 RPM to get maximum power to the wheel...

it was sandy and he only had a few issues with the bike, with the an exhaust pipe blow out being one. Billy thanked
everyone for their support and said he was glad to be home, and to get a cold glass of milk (he said they don't use ice
over there!) and some steaks. Billy also showed the helmet he wore which bore the Stateline Riders logo. Hopefully

two enduro or two hare scramble races)
