With an assortment of mounting and oil line adapters in the works and multiple finishes available, there's bound to be a Honey Pot to fill your needs. Oh yeah, and if you act now, LACC is offering a free T or free shipping (in USA) with every order.
Victory on a Victory
This past September at the BUB Speed Trials, speed junky Gregor Moe peppered the Bonneville Salt Flats on his Victory Kingpin with passes of 166.004 and 165.6mph for an average of 165.8mph and a new national speed run record. Gregor rode into the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) record books in the 2000-M-AG class, which includes bikes up to 2000cc with modifi ed frames that are gas-powered but do not use turbochargers or superchargers-the previous record of 163mph stood since 1973. Gregor's Victory Freedom engine had a modifi ed displacement of 110-cubic inch engine and a Lloydz cam package, intake and fuel mapping.

Turn up the Heat
Ok, so we know it gets extremely cold in the wintertime. Too cold to ride for many people. But some would brave
it if they had the right riding gear. No we're not talking about cruising down Main St. in a Snuggly or a Slanket, but something much cooler...well actually, warmer. From now until March 30, 2010 Gerbing Heated Clothing is working with its dealers to offer a test ride program where participants can feel the warmth of Gerbing's Microwire technology. To find a dealer near you call (800) 646-5916. www.gerbing.com.
