Slimey Crud Run

Last Sunday was a great day for riding - had the chance to hang out with some friends, see some cool bikes, and have fun with a cranky old Triumph Chopper that really underscores the underlying principle of motorcycling: that every trip has the potential for adventure.

Summer cleanout!
20% OFF all apparel on display

The World Finals at Bonneville have once again been cancelled.

Both rain and weakened salt are to blame for once again putting a burr in our racing plans. The salt is being continually degraded by mining companies which have severely compromised this national treasure, which racers and environmental advocates alike are trying to save.

Please see the Save Our Salt campaign to learn more about this unfortunate issue.

Scientific American has recently published a good article detailing the current state of the salt flats: Read it here.

Newly added:


1983 Honda
VT-500C Shadow

shaft drive, water cooled



1970 Suzuki

1979 Suzuki

"YOUR NAME HERE" Fundraiser

The "Your Name Here" program is a grass-roots fundraiser that, if successful, would allow us to bypass the conventional big-sponsor process. This is an opportunity for an enthusiast to participate in what I feel is a unique program that has already shown substantial results. In order to make possible the goals we have set for 2014, we need financial help to get there. There is not necessarily an absolute guarantee of our expected performance (remember the soggy salt flats of 2011...) but you have the assurance of our best efforts to get there and make it happen.
