THE WEEKLY FEED: ERZBERG SPECIAL! • HOT NEW PRODUCTS • GREAT VIDEO ACTION

BLAST FROM THE PAST

How about a little Dick Burleson ‘Pre Husqvarna’? In 1971, John Penton invited Burleson to race on the American Trophy team that was competing in the International Six Days Trial at the Isle of Man. Even though his bike failed, leaving him with a DNF, Burleson was enthused about representing his country in international competition. The next year, Burleson was invited to the ISDT again racing a Penton, this time in Czechoslovakia. That year, Burleson finished  with a bronze medal. From 1973 to 1981 Burleson won 8 consecutive Gold Medals!

 

SOCIAL DISTORTION

My buddy BP’s #299 made it into this post on the specially built Yamaha HL 500. In the USA, the HL500 was only offered as a kit bike. Torsten Hallman Racing had Profab build 100 frame kits of its Hallman “TT500 Aberg Replica.” The Hallman Racing HL500 frame kit with swingarm and necessary hardware sold for $1000 in 1978.

NEW HIGH-END MOTO CLOTHING BY USWE

After 16 years in the backpack industry as the market leader of hydration packs for Enduro and Off-Road motorcycle riders, USWE is now presenting their first ever Moto Apparel line. This big transformation launch includes premium clothing developed for the core Enduro and Off-Road riders, same group of people that wear USWE’s packs today.

The LERA Off-Road Jacket is a premium heavy-duty jacket that has everything you need to be adaptable to wild terrain. It has large, zippered vents which allow you to manage how much airflow you want on the fly or if you are running super-hot, just remove the sleeves to turn the jacket into a vest. The secure front and rear pockets help keep everything stowed securely away but always within easy reach when needed. A bonded fleece lined body and sleeve retains and regulates heat while riding and extra abrasion resistant outer sleeves protect you from the undergrowth. Ergonomically shaped sleeves and drop tail design eliminates creases and bunching whist in a riding position. Durable rust proof YKK zips throughout to keep all vents and pockets secure and safe.

 

The LERA pant is a premium heavy-duty Dirt Biking pant made to perform in gnarly terrain. It offers an outstanding pre-curved tailored Race-Fit with a large cut on the knees to accommodate knee pads or knee braces. It has full grain leather inner knee panels for optimal protection and durability. The 4 way stretch panels aid your freedom of movement while the pants are protected from wear thanks to the Rip stop nylon high abrasion seat panels. Equipped with two (2) secure zipped cargo pockets to bring your personal stuff such as phone and car keys, and two (2) zippered vents for extra airflow for the leg.
The RÖK pants are super lightweight and breathable to keep you comfortable even on the hottest of days. Fast drying fabrics together with great ventilation will keep them feeling light the whole ride. The sublimated graphics marry up to the RÖK jersey for the full race look and feel.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

One of the best sides of getting a job with Dirt Bike had to be getting on the ground level of championship racing. This is Anaheim SX, 1981 and there is no doubt that I was totally pumped. Shooting is a big part of being an editor, and race coverage was a crash course in my learning curve.
