MOTORCYCLE NEWS

Pothole season poses threat to motorcycle riders Some of the worst road conditions in recent memory. Potholes of all shapes and sizes continue to plague roads across the region as warming weather prompts motorcyclists to hop back on their wheels for the season. “You’ve gotta be aware in the beginning of the motorcycle season, especially after a harsh winter, that roads are bad,” When you get thrown from a motorcycle, you are at the mercy of whatever is around you. The curb, the tree, the fire hydrant, a car. In addition to potholes, there is still a lot of sand/salt on the roads — another hazard to motorcyclists.

Low Cost Fuel Injection

Kariya,Japan,May 29,2014 (JCN Newswire via COMTEX) -- Global automotive supplier DENSO Corporation has developed a new electronic fuel injection system for small motorcycles called DIET-FI*. DIETFI is the world’s first fuel injection system that doesn’t use a throttle position sensor or engine temperature sensor. Instead, it uses newly developed control technologies that ensure the same fuel economy and environmental performance as conventional fuel injection systems, thus cutting costs.

Harley-Davidson World Ride ®

Join H.O.G.® and Riders Around the World on the Open Road June 22-23

CONCORD, Ontario – Take a break from the rat race on June 22-23 to join the thousands of Harley-Davidson® motorcycle riders around the world who are shedding the shackles of responsibility and hitting the open road during the HarleyDavidson® World Ride. “For these two days, riders will unite to blow off the daily grind and celebrate that being free is a lot more fun,” said Nigel Villiers, Harley-Davidson Director of

Integrated Consumer Experience. “Riding is more appreciated when you can steal the time from something you’d rather not be doing, so let the meetings and honeydos wait until Tuesday and just ride.”

One World, Two Days, Millions of Miles Launched in 2008 by the Harley Owners Group® as Million Mile Monday, the an-

nual riding event was expanded into the two-day Harley-Davidson® World Ride in 2012 to give more riders worldwide an opportunity to participate. In 2012, participants logged 7.7 million miles, but last year as riders celebrated the 110th Anniversary of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company and the 30th Anniversary of H.O.G.®, riders from 66 countries blitzed that record by more than 25 per cent, tallying an official total of more than 10 million miles.
