Time for an update on the NORRA 1000 race last month. This tireless crew of the Rippin' Rooster successfully piloted their 60-year old desert hot rod from one end of the Baja peninsula to the other over some of the gnarliest terrain you can imagine. We were so stoked to see our helmets, gloves, goggles and even gasolina bottles put to good, filthy use.
My plan was to meet up with them for the second day and co-drive a section with Jim. Me and a couple buddies were also pitting for an old friend who was racing a Baja bug. As usual, the desert had it's own agenda and it included us changing a front spindle on the beach in the middle of the first night. This put me a day behind the Rooster crew, so I missed my slot on day two. Sad face. More importantly, at the end of the fourth day Jim made the podium with a hard-fought third place finish. Well done, Rippers!
Huge thanks to the Jim, Eric, Duran and the rest of the Rooster family for letting us be involved. You can follow this intrepid team on Instagram @rippinrooster

I can almost guarantee that if you are reading this article, that you probably grew up hitting bikes shows at local Harley dealerships and independent shops. You remember the ones, where two dozen bikes show up in some parking lot on a Saturday morning, and if you were lucky, there was one cool motorcycle worth checking out. The thing was that one cool bike made the whole event worthwhile, and you probably spent the rest of the weekend talking about it. Now try to wrap your head around an event where there are over 100 motorcycles spread out in a century-old Ford factory, and every single bike is badass.

Drag Specialties Seats now offers a double diamond pattern for its popular low-profile seat. These seats feature solar-reflective leather in the seating area and automotive-grade vinyl on the sides. This patented process reduces surface temperature by as much as 25*F for a cooler seat, higher durability and longer life over conventional leather or vinyl. Underneath is a flexible urethane foam interior to provide maximum comfort. The 3/1" ABS thermoformed seat base has a carpeted bottom and rubber bumpers to protect paint from damage. A handy EZ-Mount system requires no tools for taking seat on and off. Seat geometry places rider 2" further back and up to 1" lower (depending on model) than the stock seat for a better rider position with improved styling. The seat also covers the two seat fender studs for a low, clean look. Can be used with Drag Specialties solo rear seats (sold separately) and includes mounting hardware. Proudly made in the U.S.A. Available with your choice of black or silver double-diamond stitching for 97-07 FLHR, 06-07 FLHX H-D models. Suggested retail starting at $328.95.
