Team Hellcat 2.0

In 2012, I wrote a blog post about my Twitter friend Jase, aka @hellcatcustoms and his attempt to set a Land Speed Record at Bonneville (which he was successful in doing). Last year (2013), Team Hellcat Customs was ready for another attempt at Bonneville, but sadly, it was canceled due to bad weather.  I was really excited for the 2013 attempt as Team Hellcat was going to be running multiple bikes at Bonneville.

Jase - 2012 at Bonneville
After waiting an entire year, Team Hellcat is ready and looking to conquer Bonneville again!  I am happy to be one of the sponsors for Team Hellcat and I am looking forward to following this year's adventure! If you want to sponsor, you still can - click here.

Here's wishing Team Hellcat all the best at Bonneville!  If you want to get a feel of what it's like, check out the video about Jase and Team Hellcat's experience in 2012.

2015 Indian Scout

Polaris Industries and their Indian Motorcycle Division just released a new revamped version of the Indian Scout

At first glance, this 69CI liquid cooled motorcycle looks impressive.  Images demonstrate nice lines and attention to design.  Add a riding position similar to the original Scout, tan solo seat and the iconic Indian badging and you keep the image of the original Indian Scout alive.

I will reserve final opinion until I get to see the new Indian Scout in person.  As you may recall, I wrote a post a couple of years back about the Honda F6B and was very excited about it, only to be disappointed when I had the chance to see one.

The marketing people are putting their spin on things, as they should and the promotion of the 2015 Indian Scout is going full tilt.  Here's hoping that Polaris and Indian and can make a go of this.

Ride safe...
