Kyle's race bike just got fired up for the first type. He is getting it dyno'd by Stan at Northern Ohio Ducati Triumph on Friday morning, so expect more video and updates then. My dual engine bike is too long for the dang dyno!
Two weeks ago, the Valley Springs Motorcycle Club in Bay City, WI hosted the 2014 AMA Hillclimb Grand Championships. It was a 2-day event spanning Saturday and Sunday. In spite of the threat of rain, I rode down on my Sporty and attended for a little while on Sunday.
Here's the flyer. Sorry for not posting anything about this event in advance. I found out about it last-minute on Instagram.
It was easy to find if you just followed the signs.
The property was very cool. I want a 4-car garage/barn one day.
The hill was awesome.
Here's the crowd. It was really laid-back. Bring some chairs and the family and just hang out. A couple of guys even brought a couch in their pickup.
Here are all the awards the riders were competing for.
From the website; "No Tickets Required! Just show up with yourself, your ride, and everything you will need to survive camping over the weekend. We are 20 miles out of town so it will be a little bit of a trip if you forget anything.
Were Bringing a bunch of beer and munchies but you'll need to be prepared to feed yourself if you are the type that requires more than chips and hot dogs. We made the decision to open up the event to any one that wanted to show up and reduce the work load of ourselves so we can enjoy the event with everyone else.
Raffle tickets will be available at the show so bring CASH. We have a huge amount of awesome prizes to raffle off this year including 2 Motorcycles!!!"
