Sturgis Turbo Style
If you are looking to make your ride home from Sturgis go by a little faster stop by the Trask Performance booth where in six hours the company can bolt-on one of its turbo packages to any H-D fuel injected machine complete with a Zipper's ThunderMax EFI Auto Tune system. Your best bet is to make a reservation ahead of time but "walk-ins" can be accommodated. Not going to Sturgis but still want to get a Trask Turbo installed, don't fret, as Trask will be doing installs at several major events across the country.

So you just spent all winter and most of the summer building the next greatest bike to hit the V-Twin scene and now you're looking to show off your skills. Make sure you add the Metzeler Custom Bike Show to your Sturgis "To Do" list. Going on its 7th year and open to amateur and pro builders, the Metzeler Show is one of the top bike shows during the rally. The event has many classes to select from to best fit your bike style and offers great prizes such as a trip for two to Sturgis 2010, appearances in Metzeler's 2010 marketing campaigns, tires, and much more. This year the event will be held Tuesday August 4 at the Legendary Buffalo Chip.

The New Delkron
Delkron and HSE Inc. have joined resources to become Delkron Inc. As a result of this merger, Steve Swarthout and Shawn Macnamara have joined forces with experienced engine builders and designers Steve "Posie" Pfaff, Frank Aliano, and Mike Kemper formerly from Hay Seed Engineering Inc. What this means is an expansion of the Delkron product lines, innovative new products, tighter quality standards, and a large list of machine shop options (including remanufacturing programs for most American Made V-Twins).
