THE OLD MAN WINS THE ROOF OF AFRICA
jpg
Following his winning performances at Erzberg, Romaniacs, Battle of the Vikings, GetzenRodeo and Ukupacha during 2016, Jarvis entered this year’s Roof of Africa with only victory on his mind.
We had a great setup throughout the weekend and my Husqvarna worked great despite the heat. The terrain is always loose at the Roof and lacks grip, so it’s always a difficult race to win. It’s been a fantastic season for me and I can’t thank Rockstar Energy Husqvarna enough for their support.

KREFT SNOWBIKE SUSPENSION SERVICE

The sport of snow biking is exploding.  It’s no wonder, the moto-like ride experience in the snow is like no other. While simply bolting on a Timbersled, Yeti, or other snow track seems simple enough, the stock front suspension on off-road motorcycles is just not set up for the altered geometry and the unique conditions of snow biking.

Kreft Moto has developed snow bike specific settings for a range of WP Forks found on late model KTMs and Husqvarnas.

Benefits of a Kreft Moto snow bike-specific setup include:

Dramatically reduced fork dive, Improved bottoming resistance,Improved handling and chassis stability

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

toms300
CZECHO ISDE: 1991 I had raced a KTM 300 in the states Qualifier series and loved it. Finally, I had found a 2-stroke machine with superior bottom power and this made riding in substandard off-road conditions a much easier task. Heading into the Považská Bystrica ISDE event, it was my second Six days and very important to me since I had DNFed in Sweden the year before in the last terrain test on a muddy day five when the chain came off and went through the cases on my DRZ350. The Czech event had good weather, very long (180+mile) days and good grass track tests. I finished on silver and was totally pumped. I do remember that Czechoslovakia was still under the Iron Curtain and to help quicken the border crossing we handed out hundreds of sticker to the young men toting nasty looking machine guns!
