September 23, 2019

Congratulations to Briar Bauman for sewing up the 2019 title with one race to go. We interviewed him before the start of the season for Sideburn 36. When I asked, 'I have $1000 to bet on the 2019 AFT championship. Should I put it o...

So, the schedule caught up with me and I couldn't follow every race live. I missed the SacMile, but watched the Peoria TT after racing myself the same day, so I was just observing, not making notes. Briar was on it at Peoria, and t...

Rob Pearson ended up wrecking his privateer Indian FTR750 at the Black Hills Half-Mile last night. It happened after Jared Mees lost the front end mid-corner halfway through the 25-lap main. Jared and his FTR750 skidded up the trac...

This is a little bit later than usual for a couple of reasons, but I saw this race live in the flesh, having flown out to the Midwest and driven for hours on end to follow the fortunes of Red Torpedo-sponsored riders, Jared Mees an...

American Flat Track debuted a new racetrack yesterday, the purpose built short track in Laconia, New Hampshire. Why there? It hosts the oldest bike rally in the US, like a smaller Daytona or Sturgis. It's a decent idea, but there w...

Here's the latest instalment of my morning after brain dump after watching (and listening to) the AFT 2019 races on Fanschoice. First thought was thank goodness the rain held off to actually get a Twins race finished. The Singles m...

Indian Motorcycle UK had a couple of very special FTR 1200s on display at the Bike Shed Show this weekend. The FTR 1200 still haven't hit UK dealers, so any FTR is pretty special, but these were something else.
