CHAPARRAL MONSTER PARKING LOT SALE THIS SATURDAY OCTOBER 3RD!!!!

Chaparral Motorsports is excited to announce its annual Monster Parking Lot Sale is returning to the Chaparral Motorsports headquarters on South H Street in San Bernardino, and will take place on Saturday October 3rd from 8am-3pm.

With incredible deals on everything from UTV and motorcycle tires to astonishing prices on riding gear, parts, and accessories, the Chaparral Motorsports Monster Parking Lot Sale has become a must-attend event for motorsports fans from as far away as Arizona and beyond. Comparable to Black Friday sales, fans start lining up at the wee hours of the morning just to ensure they can get all the best deals. This year’s lineup of vendors and inventory is shaping up to be the best in years and should make for a spectacular event.

Chaparral Motorsports is recognized as one of the largest motorcycle dealerships in the country, offering a great selection of motorcycle parts, accessories, motorcycle gear, and motorcycle tires. Chaparral Motorsports now encompasses a 160,000 square foot footprint in San Bernardino, Calif.

ISDE OUTTAKES FOUND ON KATO’S GAGGLE OF PICS

You gotta think about this, Mark Kariya is one of the finest photojournalists on the planet. He has covered the ISDE since Burleson was in diapers. He shoots for six solid days and in the magazine we maybe use 10-15 shots. We’re talking thousands of pics here, and I just snuck out a few that didn’t make the cut. Enjoy and thanks Kato.

Russell Crowned 2015 GNCC and National Enduro Champion
Becomes First to Clinch Both Championships in the Same Year

Factory FMF/KTM rider Kailub Russell made history this past weekend by claiming the 2015 Kenda AMA National Enduro Championship, just one week after securing the AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) National Championship. Russell is the first racer in the history of off-road racing to clinch both the GNCC and National Enduro Championships in the same season.

Both championships come after the official announcement that Russell had, in fact, torn his ACL during the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Slovakia just two weeks ago. Pushing through his injury, Russell was able to finish on the podium this past weekend at round nine of the National Enduro Championship with a third place overall.

“A few weeks ago when I hurt my knee, I wasn’t sure what I would be able to do with the two championships I had on the line,” said Russell. “I am so thankful I was able to ride through this injury and win these championships. I had a great season and I am very grateful to my team for their support.”

In addition to becoming the first rider to ever claim the GNCC and National Enduro championships in the same season, the National Enduro championship is also historically significant as he and his father, Jeff Russell, became the first ever father and son duo to claim AMA National Enduro championships.

When you absolutely need to know where you’re going and how to get there—especially off-road or in an emergency—get a Garmin Navigation System. Garmin is the world leader in navigation systems for automotive, outdoor, and marine use. And unlike a smartphone that requires a cell signal, a Garmin uses GPS satellites to relay navigation information. That means you get the directions you need wherever you might be, anywhere in the world.

Summit Racing carries three Garmin Navigation Systems:

Nüvi 58LMT Navigator

vcsPRAsset_514396_146477_2a8e1f43-1863-4604-8178-edc707d7b4e9_0
The Nüvi 58LMT is an easy-to-use, dedicated GPS navigator that does not rely on cellular signals and is unaffected by cellular dead zones. It features a bright, five inch display that can be viewed horizontally or vertically. The Nüvi 58LMT comes pre-loaded with detailed maps for the U.S. and Canada, with free lifetime map updates. Other features include:
• Spoken turn-by-turn directions with Garmin Real Directions™ guide uses landmarks and traffic lights
• Foursquare feature makes it easy to find addresses for businesses, stores, restaurants, etc.
• Direct Access simplifies finding destinations at large areas like malls and airports
• Lane Assist with interchange junction view uses bright colored arrows to indicate proper lane

Nüvi Cam LMTHD Premium Navigator

vcsPRAsset_514396_146476_e0880e42-d5cb-48ef-b92e-12e68e27ed13_0
The NuviCam LMTHD has a built-in dash cam that continuously records your drive and automatically saves the footage in case of an impact. GPS records exactly where and when the event occurred, and you can view a map of where you were at the time of the incident. The dash cam’s swivel lens lets you adjust camera angle for better recording from either a windshield or dashboard mounting location. Other features include:
• Detailed maps of North America with free lifetime map updates
• HD Digital Traffic sends traffic updates as often as every 30 seconds, can report delay times and possible detours
• Garmin Real Vision will switch to dash cam view with a bright arrow to point out your destination
• Spoken turn-by-turn directions with Garmin Real Directions™ guide

2016 PRO CIRCUIT EXHAUST HONDA 450/ YAMAHA 250

 At Pro Circuit, we get just as excited about new models as
everyone else and we could hardly wait to get our hands on the new 2016 Honda CRF450R and
2016 Yamaha YZ250F. For ’16, the CRF450R will utilize the same T-6 & Ti-6 exhaust systems as
the ’15 version with the same unmatched performance advantage racers have come to expect from
Pro Circuit. The Ti-6 Pro and T-6 Euro systems have been revised for improved performance and
still meet the AMA/FIM and European sound requirements. The YZ250F T-6 and Ti-6 systems are
all new for 2016 with superior performance gains across the entire RPM range. Additionally, racers
with ’14-15 YZ250F models also benefit from our endless hours of testing because our new ’16
systems also fits these earlier versions as well with the same winning performance.

DIRT BIKE MAGAZINE PRESENTS “PREMIX”

WAS THIS THE ONLY AMERICAN TO EVER WIN THE MOTOCROSS DES NATIONS AND TOP AMERICAN AT THE ISDE? 

Danny Laporte was on the winning 1981 des Nations team, went on to win a World GP championship in 1982, became a Rally star and in 1989 won the Top American award at the Germany round of the ISDE.

Monsieur Laporte was always a decent sand rider!!! This shot was taken up in Gorman by Fran Kuhn as Danny had just returned from Europe (thinking maybe 1983 or 84?) and he and I had hooked up looking to play ride and have some fun. This was 3rd gear wide on a 490!

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

 

IMG_0197
1981 Honda CR250 test, Sunrise Cycle park in Adelanto. Here’s a quote from the test in the march 1981 issue: ” Consider, two radiators mounted forward of the oddly shaped gas tank, Darth Vador styling, freaky scalloped scoops that shovel air into coolers. One big shock mounted in the middle of the chassis, A numberplate that looks like a giant hangnail. No fins on the cherry red engine. Weird. Genuinely weird.” This was the first water-cooled machine I’d ridden and I remember that it was fast!
