The June 4th, 2016 Hooligan Dirt Dash took place at Gruene Harley-Davidson in New Braunfels, Texas. This is quite possibly the coolest dealership in the country. Their big grass field was just begging to be carved into a hooligan dirt track. Weather was not on our side, and with half of Texas underwater already, we were sweating bullets and fearing that the event might get rained out.
We flew in one of the best track builders in the business, named Kit Stokes. By Saturday morning, the rain had transformed the track into a muddy, pothole-filled war zone but Kit along with some New Braunfels heavy equipment operators whipped it into shape in a matter of hours. All the riders agreed that the track was more fun to ride and safer than what they were used to.
Multiple classes of racers kept things interestingâ€”Run what ya Brung, kickstart race, and of course the Hooligans. Heavy doses of slideways practice and racing combined with stunt shows by the Unknown crew and a Chopper/Dyna/FXR show made for a busy day of action-packed entertainment. Whether it was Mark Atkins sliding his Sportster around the track or a New Braunfels local railing corners on the FXR he rode into the event, the track was constantly buzzing.
Just after the main event we handed out trophies, Wiggins popped the champagne from the podium's top spot and the heavens opened up and doused everything. Timing could not have been better!
Thanks to everyone who came out for the races and Gruene Harley-Davidson's 10 year anniversary party, we appreciate the hospitality and can't wait to get back to Texas again soon!

One major update for Strange Days 9, is that the flat track racing will ONLY take place on Friday night, July 12th 2019. This should make everyone else that's not looking to compete, and just have a good old time happy! Saturday July 13th will be all about the chopper show and old bikes that fill the grounds each year; as well as the amazing live tunes that will be cranking all day and night. (More on that stellar music lineup coming soon!) So get your hot shoes ready for Friday, and set your barefoot party feet free on Saturday!
These pipes are small diameter 1 1/2".... I guess back in the day, the factory felt the K Model 750cc side valves worked best with these smaller diameter headers? Similar sized to the ports, etc. I always like the big, free flowing straight pipes, but so far, this thing seems extra responsive and hopefully it will help bring back some low end to this thing . . ? Factory stock early Sportster muffler. It's got a set of -60R KR heads on it, and I resleeved the cylinders, new valves, guides, etc. The Delorto PHM38 is my new carb-of-choice (if you don't want to run an M53 Linkert). I haven't really rode it around yet, so I'm sure I'll have some tuning issues coming up. Hopefully not - is always nice ! I added my set of -60 aluminum wheels (I'd been saving for who know what?) and figured I may as well start using some of this stuff.... One thing is for sure, H-D made some pretty neat bikes back with the Ks and early Sportsters. Some of the neatest lookin' if done right.
